Rochester 7 Syracuse 4
• Atkins (L, 0-1) 5IP, 4H, 1R, 0ER, 5BB, 6K
• VanAllen 1IP, 4H, 5R, 5ER, 2BB, 0K, HR
• Harper 2-4, 2B, SB, K
• Paul 1-3, 2B, BB, 2RBI

Bryce Harper did not disappoint in his AAA debut, singling, doubling, and stealing a base while playing error-free CF, but the Syracuse firemen were torched for six runs, including five runs in the 7th as the Chiefs fell to the Redwings, 7-4. Starter Mitch Atkins struggled with his control, but managed to give up just one unearned run over five innings despite issuing five free passes. The Chiefs plated all four runs in the 7th, aided by an error for the first run, an RBI single by Seth Bynum for the second tally, and a two-run double by Xavier Paul to finish the scoring.

Bowie 4 Harrisburg 2
• Gilliam (L, 0-1) 5IP, 6H, 3R, 3ER, 3BB, 4k, HR
• Frias 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Kobernus 2-4, 2SB
• Johnson 1-2, R, 2B, BB

Despite having both Michael Morse and Rick Ankiel in the lineup on rehab assignments, the Harrisburg Senators could only muster six hits and fell to the Bowie Baysox, 4-2. Jeff Kobernus led the Sens with four bases: two singles, and two swipes of second. The MLBers were a combined 0-for-5 with a walk and two strikeouts. As a team, Harrisburg went just 1-for-8 with RISP and left six runners on base.

Hagerstown 11 West Virginia 9
• Estevez (ND) 4IP, 9H, 6R, 6ER, 0BB, 3K, 0HR
• Meza (W, 1-0) 2IP, 3H, 0R, BB, K
• Kreis (SV, 1) 1IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Goodwin 2-4, 2R, HR, BB, 4RBI, OF assist at 3B
• Skole 2-5, 2B, 3RBI

It was a slugfest at the Muni, with the Suns putting up three crooked numbers and 16 hits total, shorting the West Virginia Power, 11-9. Brian Goodwin led the hit parade with a 2-for-4 night, including a two-run homer in the three-run sixth that tied the game at 9-9. He also gunned down a runner at third. Wirkin “For The Weekend” couldn’t hold an early 6-1 lead, giving up runs in three of his four innings pitched. Christian Meza got the win in relief while Alex Kreis pitched around two singles in the ninth to earn the save.

  1. I was at Bowie last night. Morse didn’t look good at the plate but he also didn’t look to be showing any signs of injury.

    Sandy Leon has a rocket for an arm, 1.8 seconds pop time on his first caught stealing

    Eury Perez’ drag bunt showed amazing speed. Play was not even close

  2. Don’t forget Rahl 1 for 1 with a monster Home Run in his only at bat after filling in for Morse

  3. Keep up the good work. It’s good to see Skole and especially Goodwin getting off to a good start. We need to closely watch Goodwin, Peres, and Michael Taylor. Barring injury, they will all enter ST-2013 vying for CF with the Big Club.

  4. Hopefuly the walks will go down as I expect as guys adjust to new levels. Nice to see a lot of the hitters doing well their first games at a new level.

  5. Kobernus is already on a tear. Add two more hits and two stolen bases in his second game.
