The Syracuse Chiefs' April 13 home opener was rained out here, but the team swept the next day's double-header against the visiting Pawtucket Red Sox. Then the hometown ballclub - led by new manager Randy Knorr - dropped three windswept games in a row Friday to the Sox and Saturday and Sunday to the LeHigh Valley IronPigs.
The wasted weekend at Alliance Bank Stadium left the Chiefs at .500, with five wins and five losses the International League's North Division.
After an eight-day road trip to Pawtucket and Scranton, the team returns home at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, April 26-28, against the Toledo Mudhens. The Toledo series concludes at 7 p.m. Friday, April 29, before the Rochester Red Wings alight at ABS for games at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, April 30 and May 1.
The Chiefs are the top farmhands of the Washington nationals, while Toledo is affiliated with the Detroit Tigers and Rochester
