Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 3 Syracuse 1
• Detwiler (L, 5-6) 7IP, 7H, 3ER, BB, 5K
• Mandel 2IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Blanco 1-4, R, HR, RBI
• Frazier 1-3, BB
After a leadoff home run by Gregor Blanco, Syracuse was completely stymied by the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees’ Adam Warren last night. Matt Antonelli sat, and apparently the Chiefs offense sat with him as they mustered just two more hits and five walks on the evening. Ross Detwiler barely managed to survive the third inning. He gave up a single, a double, and a Kevin Russo two-run double to start the frame. That was immediately followed by a Greg Golson RBI single to make four consecutive hits and to have Detwiler reeling against the ropes. After a lineout to Jesus Valdez, Detwiler bounced back by striking out Jorge Vazquez and Brandon Laird. Detwiler showed some moxie in pitching through adversity for an encouraging fourth consecutive quality start, which will help him battle his way back into the DC conversation.
Trenton 7 Harrisburg 3
• Mock (L, 0-1) 3⅓ IP, 9H, 7R, 7ER, 2BB, 4K
• Martinez 2⅔ IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 0K
• Van Allen 2IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 5K

• Moore 1-4, 2B
I would like to offer a moment of silence for all of those Harrisburg fans who will have to watch Garrett Mock today.” — Souldrummer, 6/14/11
Carlos Martinez did his best to keep clean up after Mock, turning in a strong two and 2/3rds innings of relief and stranding both baserunners he inherited. Unfortunately, Harrisburg was practicing its binary code with a 100100100 box score. Steve Lombardozzi followed up his Eastern League player of the week with a classic get-on walk, get-over stolen base, and get-in on a Chris Rahl Single to give Harrisburg an early 1-0 lead. Derek Norris walked to leadoff the fourth, two singles loaded the bastes, and a Jonathan Tucker walk were responsible for Harrisburg’s second run. Sadly, the rally lost steam with a Lombardozzi double play groundout. In the 7th, Lombardozzi reached first on a Jose Pirela error, stole second, reached third on a Corban Joseph fielding error and later scored on a Rahl groundout.

Hagerstown 2 Lakewood 2 — SUSP. (Top 11)
• Solis 7IP, 4H, 2R, ER, 2BB, 6K
• Manno 2IP, H, BB, 3K *(ERA 0.29. BA .117 in 31 IP)
• Freitas 2-3, R, 2R HR, BB
• Kelso, R, BB, K
Some of the usual suspects showed up for Hagerstown last night. Kelso scored in front of a 2R Frietas home run in the first. Manno’s Minions witnessed another dominant two innings of relief in the 9th and the first frame of extra innings. Sadly, Sammy Solis was his own worst enemy in the fifth. After allowing a leadoff double by Cameron Rupp, Miguel Alvarez singled. Carlos Pedermo reached on a Solis throwing error that ultimately led to an unearned run. Ground outs by Edgar “Duran” Duran, Zach Collier, and Jim Murphy were responsible for the second run that ended the scoring in last night’s extra inning affair before it was suspended. The Grasshoppers won to move into a virtual tie for first place with the Suns with five games to play, while Hagerstown’s magic number remains frozen at seven with seven games to play. Hickory also won last night and is a ½ game back of the top two teams, while Kannapolis is still mathematically alive at two games back with five to play but will only play 68 to ther rest of the teams’ 70 games with two games canceled
DSL Rangers 7 DSL Nationals 6
• Mendez 4IP, 6H, 2R, 1ER, 0BB, 6K
• Martinez 2IP, 4H, 4R, 3ER, 4BB, 3K
• Eusebio 2-4, 2B, SB
• Ruiz 2-2, 2R, 2B
The D-Nats fell below .500 at 6-7 with a 7-6 loss to the DSL Rangers, which was not a doubleheader as anticipated. Gilberto Mendez got the start and struck out six but gave up six hits and allowed two runs (one earned). Somehow the D-Nats nearly overcame seven errors, but only two of the seven runs surrendered were unearned. Diomedes Eusebio and Adderling Ruiz each collected two hits to account for four of the team’s seven hits.
