Syracuse-Durham — CANCELED
The rains washed out the doubleheader. Because these two teams will not play each other again in the regular season, the games have been canceled. Tonight, Syracuse begins a four-game set against the Norfolk Tides.
Harrisburg — OFF DAY
After an off day yesterday, the Harrisburg Senators host the New Britain Rock Cats for three before heading out on the road to Binghamton (three games) and Akron (four games).
Frederick 3 Potomac 2
• Holder (L, 1-5) 8IP 6H 3R 3ER 0BB 5K
• Leon 2-4, 2RBI
After shutting out the Keys on 73 pitches through seven innings, Trevor Holder appeared poised for a complete game, perhaps even a shutout. He got one but not the other as the Keys rallied for three in the eighth, aided by a strikeout-wild pitch with two outs that extended the inning, and turned a 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 lead. Potomac would get one back in the 9th, as Justin Bloxom and J.P. Ramirez drew walks following outs and Sandy Leon drove in his second run, but Jose Lozada struck out to end it, the tying run stranded at third.
Hagerstown 8 Lakewood 3 (12 inn.)
• Jordan (ND) 6IP 7H 3R 3ER 2BB 5K
• Swynenberg 3IP 1H 0R 1BB 2K
• Brown (W, 1-0) 2IP 1H 0R 0BB 2K
• Kelso 3-6, R, 2SB
• Oduber 2-6, 2R, 2RBI, SB
• Taylor 2-6, 3B, 2RBI
With a five-run 12th, highlighted by a two-run triple by Michael Taylor, the Hagerstown Suns beat the Lakewood Blue Claws, 8-3 in extra innings, securing a four-game sweep on the road for the third time this season. Taylor Jordan allowed all three Blue Claw runs on seven hits and two walks over the first six innings, as four Suns relievers shut down the Blue Claws for the last six, with Sam Brown getting the win. Blake Kelso led the 13-hit attack with three hits, while Bryce Harper was given an intentional pass to extend his on-base streak to 24 games.
