Rochester 6 Syracuse 3
• Martin (ND) 6⅓ IP, 4H, 1R, 1ER, 0BB, 5K, HR
• Severino (BS, 2) ⅔ 3H, 2R, 2ER, BB, K
• Frazier 2-3, R, HR, RBI, BB, CS
• Maldonado 2-4, R

J.D. Martin’s final start of the season was marred by a bullpen blowup, as the Chiefs surrendered three in the 7th and three in the 8th to blow a 3-0 lead and lose 6-3. Martin was lifted with one out in the 7th after giving up his lone run on a home run. Atahualpa Severino gave up the tying runs on three hits and a walk but finished the inning. Garrett Mock took the loss with three runs surrendered in the 8th. Jeff Frazier led the Chiefs offense with a 2-for-3 night including a solo HR.

Akron 6 Harrisburg 2
• Roark (L, 9-9) 7IP, 9H, 3R, 3ER, 4BB, 5K
• C Martinez 1IP, 0H, 0R, BB, 0K
• Rahl 2-4, R, 2B, 3B, RBI
• Ivany 2-4, CS

In what you’ll see is a motif, the Sens ‘pen also faltered, giving up three in the 9th to turn a 3-2 game into a 6-2 loss. Tanner Roark took the loss to even his record at 9-9, pitching seven innings but putting 13 runners on base via hit or walk. Chris Rahl doubled and tripled to lead the Harrisburg offense, which managed just seven hits total. Bowie lost while Richmond won to put the Baysox on the brink of elimination from the playoffs, the magic number now just one for the Flying Squirrels.

Kinston 9 Potomac 8

• Davis (L, 0-5) 6⅔ IP, 6H, 6R, 6ER, 4BB, 3K
• Smoker 1⅓ IP, 2H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 2K, HR (GS)
• Perez 3-4, 2R, SB (45)
• Walters 2-5, R, 3B

Oh, look. A reliever gave up the big hit to make it hurt Last Night In Woodbridge

Hagerstown 6 Lakewood 5
• Grace 6IP, 7H, 4R, 4ER, 2BB, 4K, HR
• Demmin (W, 5-2) 3IP, 1H, 1R, 1ER, BB, 0K
• Martinson 3-4, 2R, 2B, HR, RBI
• Oduber 3-4, R, SB

Another four-run rally in the 8th, another 6-5 win for Hagerstown. Matt Grace tossed six innings but allowed four earned runs on seven hits and two walks, striking out four, finishing the season with a 12-7 mark despite a 1.56 WHIP and a .314 OBA. Jason Martinson and Randolph Oduber both went 3-for-4 for the Suns, with Martinson’s 18th homer beginning the eighth-inning rally. Ryan Demmin got the win with a run given up over the final three innings.

Auburn 2 Batavia 1
• M Rodriguez 4⅔ IP, 4H, 1R, 1ER, 3BB, 3K
• Jenkins (S, 1) 3IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Moldenhauer 2-4, R, 2-2B
• Montilla 2-4, R, 2B

Three Auburn pitchers combined to limit Batavia to one run on five hits as the Doubledays edged the Muckdogs, 2-1. Manny Rodgriguez got the start and gave up the first four hits over four and 2/3rds, walking three and striking out three. Kelvin Lopez got the win by finishing the fifth and pitching the sixth while Chad Jenkins notched his first save with three scoreless innings to finish up. Russell Moldenhauer and Angel Montilla both went 2-for-4 with a run scored to lead the Doubleday offense. Today is the season finale with Auburn’s first-round opponent still undetermined, as Connecticut and Vermont are separated by a game in the Stedler Division.

  1. Sue, you got one good eye for hitters eh ;)

  2. Guys it was a pleasure being part of this Blog. I can tell you that you all do a great job and it has been a pleasure. Sue, I thank you for the opportunity to put my 2 cents in. You are great. If I may I would also like to thank a young man by the name of Chris manno. You all know how I feel about this kid, I am bias, but I am honest. I spoke with Hagerstown players, and everytime I mentioned Manno , thier face lit up with a smile. How does a kid have such an impact both on and off the field. When he was traded, it depressed a great deal of players, and fans. He just had that Jeter like influence and I say that with all due respect to Derek. AS far as his performance, well just my opinion , best relief pitcher in the Sally hands down.Quite possibly the most effective pitcher in Cally league in his short time there. In Cally where a pop fly is a homer run in all ball parks , he threw 17 inn and allowed 1 run, 5 hits with 32K’s . I just want to thank Manno for a great year in Hagerstown. You graced us with your presence and you said thank you by pitching like a champ and treating teammates ,coaches and fans as if they were your family. Great JOB CHRIS MANNO

  3. Mel, you say this using past tense, are you going overseas on us?
    Honestly, we’re all fans of Chris Manno and you’ll receive no disagreement from any of us regarding your praise of him.
    I still say it was a dumb trade.

  4. going no im staying love this blog its the end of the season this week and wanted to say thanks to all involved, by far one of the most informative blog

  5. Mel u r da man, great input and it is important for us to have a scouts view point. I must say you were dead on about Manno at the beginning of the season and without hesitation u r dead right at the end. It was great having manno in hagerstown, and I wish him nothing but the best.,you know the trade could wind up putting Manno on the fast track to the bigs

  6. well said
