SYRACUSE | John Lannan did alright, but not great.
Over 6.1 innings of work, the lefty gave up three hits, and three runs and struck out three, but walked four in a 6-4 loss to the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees on Monday at Alliance Bank Stadium.
A three-run double off of Erik Davis in the top of the eighth was countered by a three-run pinch-hit homer by Jim Negrych in the bottom of the ninth.
Brett Carroll went 2-for-3 and scored a run.

Nationals Headline of the Day: On the left coast
Next Game: Aug. 14 vs. Toledo 7 p.m.
Line of the Day: Sandy Leon, C - 2-for-4, 2 R, HR, RBI
The much traveled catcher hit his first home run of the Triple-A season with a solo shot in the bottom of the fifth.
After a bunch of small moves by the organization Leon, and veteran Carlos Maldonado, are the two remaining catchers in Syracuse.
Mauro Gomez of Pawtucket (.311) jumped a point in front of Carlos Rivero (1-for-4, .310) in the International League Batting race.
Overall, a pretty quiet day.
