SYRACUSE | Right back where they started.

The Syracuse Chiefs split a doubleheader with the Durham Bulls on Tuesday at Alliance Bank Stadium on the first day that the new video board was in action in Syracuse.

Durham starter Chris Archer allowed only four Chiefs hits in the nightcap as the Bulls won, 2-1. After a first inning run, he stymied Syracuse setting down 12 Chiefs in a row at one point. Chris Albernaz drove in two with a single in fifth to score all of the runs that Durham needed.

“We have a lot of work to do. We haven’t been very consistent,” manager Tony Beasley said. “One day the bats are big the next day we aren’t producing runs. We are pitching well and then we are pitching poorly. We have just been really inconsistent.”

Zach Duke mastered the left-hand heavy Durham lineup in the first game with a three-hit complete game as the Chiefs won, 4-2.

Xavier Paul hit a lead-off homer in the second and Carlos Maldonado drove in a run to support Duke's effort.
