Fighters pound Swingers 11-3

SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- The Fighters bruised Syracuse 11-3 to maintain a first-place tie with the now-slightly less "Miraculous" Montgomery.

Max Camacho helped break open a 3-3 tie in an 8-run seventh, walking once and scoring on a Dwight Meyers single and knocking in two on a bloop single to right.

"I thought (Sam) Stewart had it, but the ball must have had some spin on it that threw him off or something," Camacho said.

Pat Sinclair (1-4) took the loss, his third in four previous starts, and Dweezil Henson committed two errors.

The third baseman booted a routine grounder with two outs in the seventh, allowing one run to score and opening the door for three more to follow.

Pedro Tejera (3-0) picked up the win by recording two outs to end the seventh.

In other NL South action, Kansas City topped Anaheim 8-3 to pull within one game of San Antonio and Montgomery.
