Buffalo 11 Syracuse 6
• Gaudin (L, 0-1) 2⅔ IP, 2H, 3R, 0ER, 2BB, 2K
• Tatusko 2⅔ IP, 3H, ER, BB, 2K
• Marrero 2-4, R, 2R HR, 2RBI
• Solano 1-1, R, RBI, BB

Buffalo ran out to a 9-2 sixth inning lead against the Chiefs. Buffalo did most of its damage in a five-run, two-out, third-inning rally that started with a leadoff fielding error on Tug Hulett that led to three unearned runs against rehabbing Chad Gaudin. Syracuse’s biggest offensive highlight was Chris Marrero’s 9th homer in the fourth. Syracuse falls to 37-46, twelve games back of Lehigh Valley.

Harrisburg 7 Erie 3
• Arnesen (W, 6-1) 6⅔ IP, 7H, 2R, 2ER, 2BB, 4K
• Pena (S, 6) 2.1IP 4H, 1R, 1ER, 0BB, 0K
• T Moore 3-4, R, 2-2B, 3RBI
• Rahl 2-4, R, 2B, RBI

Tyler Moore was the offensive star against Erie, with an RBI double as part of a four-run first and a two-RBI double as part of a three-run 7th. Erik Arnesen was only touched for single runs in the second and the seventh. Hassan Pena stranded an inherited runner and pitched two and 1/3 innings of scoreless relief to get the save. Harrisburg improves to 49-34, good for a five and a half game lead over Richmond.

Potomac 12 Wilmington 3
• Solis (W, 1-0) 6IP, 7H, 3R, 3ER, BB, 5K
• Testa 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Kobernus 3-5, 2R, 2-2B, RBI, SB (34)
• Ramirez 2-5, 2R, GS HR, 4RBI
• Hood 1-5, R, 2B, 4RBI

Sammy Solis won his Carolina League debut Last Night In Woodbridge

Hagerstown 4 Lakewood 3
• Applebee 5IP, 4H, 1ER, 0BB, 5K
• Manno (S, 11) 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 5K
• Keyes 1-3, R, 2B, 2RBI, BB
• Nicol 2-4, 2B, RBI

Hagerstown rallied for three runs in the top of the eighth to come back for a 4-3 victory over Lakewood. Kevin Keyes’s two-out, two-run double was the critical blow in the rally that earned the win for Matt Swynenberg, who gave up two runs in relief of a strong spot start for Paul Applebee. Hopefully, Chris Manno’s two perfect innings of five strikeout ball will be a critical statement for his promotion so that Manno’s Minions
do not have to personally carry him to Potomac. Hagerstown improves to 8-5, good for a tie with first-half winner Hickory in the Northern division of the South Atlantic League.

Auburn 4 State College 2
• M Rodriguez 4IP, 5H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 3K
• K Lopez (W, 1-1) 3IP, 3H, 0R, 0BB, 4K
• Kreis (S, 1) 2IP, 3H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Skole 2-3, R, BB
• Ramsey 2-4, R, 2RBI, 2SB

Caleb Ramsey was the driving force in a four-run fourth, with a 2RBI single as part of a 2-for-4 night that also him swipe two bags as the Auburn Doubledays swept the State College Spikes with a 4-2 win. Manny Rodriguez recovered from the beating he took in his last outing (6R, ⅔ IP) to go four innings and allow two runs on five hits and a walk. The bullpen took over from there and extended its scoreless streak to 12⅓ innings with five solid innings from Kelvin Lopez and Alex Kreis, who got the win and save respectively. Auburn is now 11-8 and one game off the pace.

GCL Mets 7 GCL Nationals 5
• King (L, 1-2) 2⅔ IP, 6H, 7R, 7ER, 2BB, 2K, HR
• Ja. Smith 3⅓ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, K
• Mozingo 2-3, R
• HWMNBN 3-5, R, 3B, RBI
• P Severino 2-4, R, HR, 2RBI

Brandon King took another shellacking, giving up seven runs on six hits and two walks over two and 2/3rds innings as the GCL Nationals fell 7-5 to the GCL Mets. Jason Smith led a strong bullpen effort with 3⅓ of the 6⅓ scoreless innings pitched. Chad Mozingo and Pedro Severino paced the offense for the age-appropriate players, with Mozingo collecting two singles and Severino singling and connecting on a two-run homer. The loss drops the G-Nats to 6-6 for the season, two games behind the G-Mets and G-Marlins in the GCL East.

DSL Nationals — PPD
For the second straight day, rain washed out most of the DSL league, including the DSL Nationals.

  1. [...] Tuesday 7/5 game reviews (Gaudin, Arneson, Solis, Applebee, MRodriguez & Lopez, King) [...]

  2. Can somebody please tell me why we are keeping Manno down in Hagerstown? He should have been promoted before Harper. He’s a 22 year old dominating low A ball.

  3. Is there some consensus that Potomac has too many lefties in the pen and won’t get him enough innings? I don’t know. Manno’s Minions must be satisfied, Rizzo!

    • That exact comment was made to me by Suns coach B. Daubach. I can envision Manno going to Harrisburg after hearing the coache’s comment…

      • I take no credit. I believe that you were the original source for that thought in another thread.

      • Manno seems to be more than ready for a promotion; The question is, who backfills for him in HAG? The kids in Auburn need another couple of weeks, and I doubt Rizzo would demote either of the LHRP’s (Smoker or Testa) from Potomac. Maybe Chico gets a bump from the G-Nats, but then Daubach would need to go back to Graham as his closer & hope Michalak can ‘coach up’ Weaver to recover his 2010 form.

        If you’re a Nationals’ minor-league fan, it’s a nice problem to hash over, I suppose.

  4. To fix the to many Lefties problem, Manno to Potomac, Testa to Harrisburg , and VanAllen to Syracuse.

  5. would not be surprised to see manno jump to Harrisburg. its a big jump and very very rare, but 22 yearold from the ACC can handle it

  6. guys I was in LakeWood last night
    One word on manno. Good night the lights are out. He was outstanding comes in a very close game (4-3 lead) 123 K K K still holding on to a 1 run lead fist 2 batters in the 9th KK then a broken bat pop up

    Listen I love watching this kid work, and can see him at the next level or 2 very soon I worry about Testa getting promoted to Harrisburg in front of him. MY reason is simple manno pitches just as well to rights as leftys. He is pure and simeple one of the best pitchers in the Sally league . If not the best

  7. I am no stranger to being opinionated but when someone tells me we have two many leftys its Horse poo poo I dont care if Manno throws with is feet. Look at the stats , r u kidding ,me 38 inn pitched 63 K 13 BB batting average of close to .130 and a WHIP of .80 10 out of 11 saves promote the kid guys he will show you that he is the real deal

  8. I have nothing more to add on Manno that these very smart people in front of me havn’t already said.

    Someone needs to corner Rizzo on this so he improvise another lie to us.
