Garrett Mock’s aversion to the strike zone continued for the second straight start with seven walks surrendered in two-plus innings as the PawSox pounded the Chiefs, 14-0. He threw 69 pitches, 34 for strikes and faced just 17 batters. Corey Brown and Carlos Maldonado combined for fourof the eight Syracuse hits as the Chiefs lost for the sixth time in seven games.

· Gilbert 2-3, 2B, SB, RBI
Tim Pahuta’s one-out shot in the bottom of the 10th gave the Senators a 4-3 win, the second walkoff of the year for Harrisburg. After getting hammered by the Thunder last Friday night, starter Ryan Tatusko recovered for a much better outing with three runs allowed on seven hits and three walks over five and a 1/3rd innings. The Sens bullpen combined for four and 2/3rds of scoreless relief, with one hit allowed and five strikeouts. The veteran bats of Pahuta, Archie Gilbert and Jonathan Tucker combined for four of the Sens six hits and all four RBI.

Danny Rosenbaum struggled with his control yet again, but pitched into the 8th to secure his first win of ’11 as the P-Nats stopped the Salem win streak at five with a 5-2 win. The Potomac lefthander’s key moment came in the third inning, after two walks, a flyout, and two singles brought in a run and loaded the bases with one out. Rosenbaum got the DP and got out of the inning, preserving the lead that Steve Souza’s 5th HR had given the P-Nats. Sandy Leon emptied the bases in the very next half-inning with a double to take a 5-1 lead. Pat Lehman would pitch a 1-2-3 ninth for his second save of the year.

· Oduber 1-4, R, HR, RBI
The Suns built a 5-2 lead after three, but gave up six unanswered runs to lose 8-5. Bryce Harper put one over the wall in the bottom of the first, but ran into it during the five-run fourth [Ed. Note: SFW, but poorly edited]. He stayed in the game but was held out of the nightcap. Starter Chris McKenzie was tagged for six runs on four hits and four walks. The Suns took advantage of five walks to score five runs on just four hits, highlighted by solo HRs by Harper and Randolph Oduber.
Hickory 7 Hagerstown 6 — GAME TWO
· Applebee (ND) 5IP 6H 4R 3ER 0BB 4K
· Sanchez 2-4, 2RBI
· Leonida 1-2, R, BB
· Oduber, OF assist at HP
Hickory did all it could to give this game away, walking eight batters — including five in the Suns’ five-run fifth — but Hagerstown saved its worst for last, committing two errors in the top of the 7th to drop this one 7-6. Chris Manno was the hard-luck loser, charged with both unearned runs. Starter Paul Applebee went the first five innings, allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits. The Suns managed just four hits in the game, with Adrian Sanchez getting two of them.
