Syracuse 10 Rochester 5
• Lannan (W, 1-2) 7IP, 8H, 5R, 4ER, 4BB, 3K
• Wilkie 1IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 2K
• Teahen 2-4, 2R, HR (GS), 6RBI
• Brown 2-4, 2R, BB, OF Assist (2B)
• Moore 2-5, R
• Harper 1-3, R, BB, CS
Mark Teahen and Jason Michaels both connected for grand slams as the Chiefs hit double-digits for the first time this season in a 10-5 win over the Red Wings. John Lannan was awarded the win despite giving up all five runs (four earned) on eight hits and four walks. Syracuse pounded out 12 hits total, with Carlos Maldonado the beer man as the sole oh-fer in the lineup, and the first four men in the order collecting two hits apiece. Josh Wilkie and Ryan Perry each tossed a scoreless inning in relief to close out the game.
Harrisburg 8 Altoona 0
• Rosenbaum (W, 3-0) 7IP, 3H, 0R, 2BB, 2K; 0-2, SF, RBI
• Nelo 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Leon 3-4, 2R, 2B, RBI
• King 2-4, 2R, 3B, RBI
• Rahl 2-5, 2R, 2-2B, 2RBI
Danny Rosenbaum continues to dazzle, throwing seven shutout innings to lower his ERA to 0.94 and driving in a run with a sac fly as the Senators blanked the Curve, 8-0. The 24-y.o. walked two (raising his FIP from 2.32 to 2.61; the E.L. average is 3.59) and gave up three hits while claiming his third win of the season. The trio of Chris Rahl, Stephen King, and Sandy Leon combined for seven of the 12 Harrisburg hits, including a three-pitch sequence of double (Rahl), triple (King), and single (Leon) as part of Sens’ five-run 6th. Pat McCoy and Hector Nelo both allowed a hit in their inning of work but kept Altoona off the board to preserve the shutout.
Winston-Salem 14 Potomac 0
• Grace (L, 1-2) 5⅓ IP, 6H, 6R, 5ER, 3BB, K
• Eusebio ⅔ IP, 1H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 0K, HR, 2-2 IR-S
• Walters 1-4, 2K, E(2)
• Nicol 1-4, 2K
BB&T continues to be a house of horrors for the P-Nats, as they lost for the 16th time in 23 regular-season games by a 14-0 count. The offense managed just two hits and three walks, with Zach Walters and Sean Nicol both going 1-for-4 with two strikeouts. Thanks to an error, a wild pitch, and four hit batsmen, Potomac had 11 baserunners total and they were all stranded, including seven with two out. Winston-Salem scored 12 of its 14 runners in its final three turns at bat, blowing open a 2-0 lead to 8-0 with a six-run 6th, then tacking on two in the 7th, and four in the bottom of the 8th, as every Potomac pitcher was charged with at least two runs.
Hagerstown 24 Rome 2
• Hill (W, 3-0) 5IP, 5H, 2IP, 2R, 1ER, 0BB, 0K
• Karns (SV, 1) 4IP, 2H, 0R, 2BB, 5K
• Souza 4-6, 3B, HR, BB, 9RBI
• Martinson 3-6, 3R, 2B, BB, 5RBI
• Skole 1-3, 4R, 5BB, 2RBI
It may have been April 2012, but for the Braves pitchers, it was more like November 1864, as the Suns batters marched to a 24-2 win in Georgia. Steven Souza fell a double short of the cycle and one RBI short of the Sally League record for a single game as the 23-year-old knocked in nine runs while going 4-for-6.
Hagerstown rapped out 24 hits and drew 14 walks (five by Matt Skole, a league-leading 18 for the season). Taylor Hill got the win with two runs allowed on five hits over five innings, while Nathan Karns struck out five over the last four innings to earn the rulebook save.
