Syracuse 8 Buffalo 2
• Milone (W, 9-6) 5⅔ IP, 6H, 2R, 1ER, 3BB, 5K
• Martin (S, 1) 3IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 2K
• Antonelli 3-5, 2R, HR, 2RBI
• Marrero 2-4, R, 2B, HR, 2RBI, BB
• Brown 2-3, BB

The bats broke out to stop a four-game losing streak as the Chiefs tanned the Bisons, 8-2. Jhonatan Solano was the lone position player to go hitless as Syracuse collected 13 hits, with four batters getting two, and Matt Antonelli leading the way with a 3-for-5 night. Tom Milone got his ninth win with five and 2/3rds innings pitched and two runs allowed, though he walked a season-high three batters. The SoCal southpaw also went 1-for-3 at the plate, lowering his batting average to .409. The win improves Syracuse to 50-64, and extends the gap between fourth and fifth place in the I.L. north to 2½ games.

Harrisburg Senators — OFF DAY
Harrisburg starts a crucial three-game set against third-place Richmond tonight with veteran Erik Arnesen on the hill. The Flying Squirrels have been the Senators nemesis this season, taking 12 of the first 18 meetings and this is the final regular-season series between the two teams.

Salem 2 Potomac 1
• Demny 5+ IP, 4H, 1R, 1ER, 6BB, 1K, 3HBP, 1WP
• Holder 2IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Soriano 1-4, RBI
• Perez 1-3

Potomac pitchers simply gave the Red Sox too many chances Last Night In Woodbridge

Greensboro 9 Hagerstown 3
• Demmin (L, 2-2) 6IP, 5H, 5R, 2ER, 0BB, 4K
• Keyes 1-3, R, BB
• Martinson 1-3, R, 2B, BB

Greensboro opened up a 2-1 game with two in the 5th, one in the 6th, and two more in the 7th as they, um, hopped past the Suns 9-3. Ryan Demmin took the loss with five runs (two earned) given up on five hits and no walks over six innings but the bullpen was battered for four over the last three. Jason Martinson and Kevin Keyes both went 1-for-3 with a run scored and walk to lead the offense, which was held to just four hits and four walks total. The loss drops Hagerstown to 22-21, four games behind Hickory in the Sally North.

Mahoning Valley 7 Auburn 2
• Hill (L, 0-2) 5IP, 5H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 5K
• Kreis 1⅔ IP, 1H, 0R, 3BB, 1K
• Skole 2-5
• Alvarez 2-4, 2B, RBI
• J Miller 0-5, 5K

Mahoning Valley got the series split with a 7-2 win over Auburn. Dave Hill took the loss in his second start for the Doubledays, allowing three runs over five innings with five hits allowed, no walks and five strikeouts. Auburn was held to just eight hits, with Matt Skole and Bowden’s folly each getting two, as the team was a woeful 1-for-12 with RISP, stranding 11 baserunners. The loss puts Auburn and Mahoning Valley back into a first-place tie, 1½ games ahead of Williamsport and three games ahead of Jamestown.

GCL Nationals 9 GCL Astros 2
• McGeary 3IP, 2H, 1R, 0ER, 0BB, 2K
• Encarnacion (W, 1-2) 5IP, 4H, 1R, 0ER, BB, 3K
• JC Valdez 4-5, R, 2RBI
• W Ramos 2-4, 2R, RBI
• Mozingo 2-5, R, 2B, 2RBI

Jack McGeary continues to improve with each outing, tossing three innings with no walks today in a 9-2 win over the GCL Astros. McGeary allowed one unearned run on two hits while striking out two. Pedro Encarnacion followed him on the mound and pitched the next five for the win, allowing the second G-Astro run (also unearned) on four hits and a walk. Jean-Carlos Valdez led the 11-hit attack with four singles and two RBI. The win improves the G-Nats to 14-27, just their second win in the last 10 games.

DSL Nationals 15 DSL Angels 10
• Mendez 6IP, 8H, 4R, 1ER, 0BB, 3K
• W Rodriguez 3-5, 2R, 2B, 2SB
• Ruiz 3-3, 2R, 2B, 2RBI, BB
• Geraldo 1-4, R, 5RBI

A grand slam highlighted an eight-run 7th as the DSL Nationals piled on late for 15-10 win over the DSL Angels, despite getting outhit 18-11. Gilberto Mendez started and went the first six innings, allowing four runs (one earned) on eight hits and no walks. Kelvin Rodriguez got the win despite giving up three runs over an inning and a 1/3rd. The win puts the D-Nats at 29-28, six games off the pace in the B.C. South.

  1. Do not want to operate in the past and I still go to see the suns when I have the opportunity, which is just about every home game, but I have to say what a huge difference in the bullpen without manno. I am talking about swagger, and I am talking about Fun. If anyone here ever went to suns game, one of the attractions was the fun the bullpen had. The rally caps, the chanting and the different things the players would do to ask the Gods for a win. When the game is close in the 8th or 9th inning Manno was electric. We miss that and Hagerstown misses the Kid. So on a personal note this fan will not speak of this anymore, because i have to much respect for the Suns, but I miss you manno

  2. I noticed that last Friday in the G-Nats game that Brandon King was removed after 2/3 of an inning…Was there something physically wrong? Or did they just pull him?

    • Sight unseen, my guess would be that he hit the pitch-count limit for that inning, which I believe may be as low as 30 for the GCL. Certainly possible with two walks in six batters faced.

      • Sounds like a really bizarre procedure for a starting pitcher who’s been regularly going 5, but maybe that’s why there are what looks like about 25 guys pitching for them….

        • King has been battling shoulder problems since he was drafted in ’09. The idea behind limiting the number of pitches in a given inning is to reduce the stress. Ordinarily, 30 pitches is like two and a 1/3rd innings pitched with two breaks of five to eight minutes to rest over the course of 40-45 minutes, and perhaps only 10-15 from the stretch. Thirty pitches in a single inning is probably closer to 20 from the stretch and often thrown with higher intensity, probably over the course of just 15 minutes.

  3. Manno 2 saves 6.1 inn 13 K 1 BB and 2 Hits . guys the Calli league is known as a hiiters league. and Manno pitched against the heart of the line up to the best team in the league and was dominant. remember something else this is the time of year where the first full year college players start to get worn and tired. College season usually ends by the middle of june , anyway Elliot well said , i am a huge Manno fan and this trade might very well be the most positive thing to happen to this young man’s professional carreer . log jam of leftys above did not help Manno with the Nats. he should of been in Potomac 2 months ago
