Tyler Moore led the 11-hit effort with a 3-for-4 game, while Seth Bynum homered. Bryce Harper shifted to RF for the game, with Corey Brown manning CF.
Harrisburg 13 Bowie 3

Lynchburg 7 Potomac 2
• Hansen (L, 0-1) 2IP, 5H, 4R, 3ER, 2BB, 0K, HR
• Applebee 3IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 3K
• Nicol 2-2, 2RBI
• Rendon 1-1, 2B, BB
The pain of losing a second straight game pales in comparison to the possibility of losing Anthony Rendon to a leg injury for an extended period of time. Multiple online reports are stating that it was his left leg (he has fractured his right ankle twice), but Nationals officials are mum on the severity. Rendon slipped after rounding third, attempting to score on a Justin Blxom single. He had doubled toe lead off the inning and was attempting to score with just one out. Sean Nicol filled in admirably, going 2-for-2 and driving in both Potomac runs. Bobby Hansen took the loss, giving up a pair of runs in the first two innings on five hits (one HR) and two walks.
Hagerstown 4 West Virginia 3
• Meyer (W, 1-0) 5IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 4K
• Barrett (SV, 1) 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Skole 3-4, R, RBI
• Martinson 2-3, R, BB, RBI
Alex Meyer threw five shutout innings, allowing just two hits and no walks while fanning four to win his professional debut. Matt Skole and Jason Martinson combined for five of the Suns seven hits and each drove in a run. Hendry Jimenez made two costly errors in errors in the eighth, giving away the third Power run but also turned a double play to end the inning, helping Aaron Barrett notch his first save of the 2012 campaign.
