Syracuse 6 Columbus 1
• Atkins (W, 3-3) 5IP, 3H, 1R, 0ER, BB, 2K
• Roark 3IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 5K
• Brown 3-5, R, 2B, RBI, CS
• Paul 2-4, R, RBI
• Negrych 1-3, R, HR, 2RBI

Jim Negrych’s two-run HR started the five-run 2nd off with a bang, as Syracuse downed Columbus, 6-1. Mitch Atkins evened his record with one run given up over five innings while Tanner Roark struck out five over three in his first relief outing. Corey Brown and Xavier Paul remain red-hot, combining for five of the eight Syracuse hits and both scoring a run.

Richmond 1 Harrisburg 0 (14 inn.)
• Rosenbaum (ND) 7IP, 4H, 0R, 2BB, 4K
• Pucetas 3IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 5K
• Frias (L, 1-3) 1⅓ IP, 0H, R, ER, 5BB, 0K, WP
• Valdez 2-6
• Kobernus 1-5, SB, SH

Richmond quite literally walked off as Marcos Frias issued four free passes (one intentional) in the bottom of the 14th to send Harrisburg to a 1-0 loss, snapping the Sens’ five-game win streak. Starter Danny Rosenbaum lowered his ERA to 0.62 with seven shutout innings, but the Flyinq Squirrels’ Chris Heston — the #2 man in the E.L. ERA race at 0.71 — matched him, then threw an 8th scoreless frame. Harrisburg managed just six hits, with Jesus Valdez the sole multihit Senator.

Potomac 10 Frederick 9
• Winters (ND) 5IP, 7H, 4R, 4ER, 2BB, 3K
• Holland (W, 2-1) 3IP, 2H, 0R, 2BB, 2K, 2-2 IR-S
• Taylor 3-4, R, 2B, 3RBI
• Bloxom 3-5, 3R, RBI

A win is a win, even when it’s ugly like it was Last Night In Woodbridge.
Prior to the game, LHP Bobby Hansen Jr. was activated from the DL, with RHP Wilson Eusebio moved to the temporary inactive list to make room on the 25-man roster.

Hagerstown 13 Delmarva 11
• Dupra 3IP, 4H, 4R, 4ER, BB, 2K, 3HR
• Holt (W, 1-0) 2⅓ IP, 4H, 2R, 2ER, BB, K
• Simko (SV, 1) 2IP, 0H, R, ER, 3BB, 0K
• Ramsey 4-5, 2R, 2B, RBI
• Dykstra 3-5, 3R, HR, 3RBI
• Martinson 2-3, R, 2B, 3B, 3RBI

After blowing leads of 7-4 and 9-8, Hagerstown put another four-spot on the board in the last of the 7th and fended off one last charge from Delmarva for a 13-11 win. Every Hagerstown batter reached base, eight drove in at least one run, and seven had a hit as the Suns piled up 14 hits total. Caleb Ramsey led the hit parade with a 4-for-5 night, while Cutter Dykstra and Jason Martinson both drove in three. Starter Brian Dupra was tagged for four runs on four hits, three of them over the fence. Greg Holt got the win in relief while Todd Simko notched the save. Byron Kerr is reporting that CF Brian Goodwin will be back in action tonight. No word on the corresponding roster move just yet, but look for Billy Burns (29G on-base streak) to shift to LF.

  1. The lefty the night before who was throwing 80 mph fastballs and off speed off of that messed up the timing of the hitters on Thursday. As is often the case wether it is a soft toaster or a knuckleballer or a submariner those sort of specialty guys mess up hitters for a day or two.

  2. Oops meant a soft tosser, darn spell correct!

  3. Also Kobernus’ hit was originally ruled an error and changed after the game.
