Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 3 Syracuse 0 — GAME ONE (comp.)
• Atkins 9IP, 5H, 3R, 1ER, 6BB, 4K
• Maldonado 1-3, 2B, BB
• Rivero 1-3
• Negrych 1-2
After a 92-day hiatus, Syracuse lost to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in the completion of the suspended game, 3-0. The loss went to Mitch Atkins, who threw the unusual complete game, giving up all three Yankees runs on five hits and six walks while striking out four. Syracuse mustered one more hit (six) with the Carloses (Maldonado and Rivero) both going 1-for-3.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 1 Syracuse 0 — GAME TWO
• Mandel 5IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 4K
• Arnesen 3⅓ IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 6K
• Bibens-Dirkx (L, 0-2) 1IP, 1H, R, ER, 2BB, 0K, HBP,
• Rivero 2-6, 2B
• Marrero 1-3, BB
What was supposed to be one reliever making a spot start and possibly another finishing it up for a light night, the Chiefs ended up emptying the bullpen as they dropped the second game, 1-0 in 14 innings. Jeff Mandel flirted with a no-hitter for four and 2/3rds and finished with a one hit allowed over five innings. Austin Bibens-Dirkx took the loss when he walked the leadoff batter, gave up a single, hit a batter, then walked in the game’s lone run. The Chiefs collected 10 hits total, but left on 11 while going 0-for-8 with RISP.

• Kobernus 2-5, R, 3B, 2RBI
• Lozada 1-2, R; ⅓ IP, BB, 1-1 IR-S
Trevor Holder’s AA debut was a tale of two innings. The first was the best of times (1-2-3), the second… not so much. Richmond scored seven times against the 25-y.o., including a grand slam that ended his night as the Flying Squirrels went on to a 12-4 triumph. Ryan Tatusko turned in a masterful piece of relief, allowing just a run on six hits and two walks over five and a 1/3rd innings. Jeff Kobernus led the Senators offense with a single and a triple and two RBI.

Drew Storen finished out the game with two innings, but was touched for a home run by Wilmington’s Matt Fields, who also took Ray deep in the 4th. Francisco Soriano and J.P. Ramirez both went 2-for-3 as the offense registered eight hits total, but the defense committed three errors.

• Burns 0-2, 3BB
• Souza 1-5, R, HR, RBI
After taking the lead in the top of the 10th, the Suns were eclipsed in the space of three batters in the bottom of the 10th as a one-out HR gave the GreenJackets the 4-3 win in extras, stopping the Hagerstown win streak at seven. The Suns managed just five hits total, including Steve Souza’s 16th home run. Taylor Hill had just one bad inning, giving up two runs in part of the 7th after tossing six scoreless to begin the game.

• Pleffner 3-5, R, 3B
• E. Martinez 2-5, RBI
A pair of two-run rallies in the 6th and 7th innings pushed the Doubledays past the Ironbirds for a 6-3 win in Aberdeen. David Fischer got the win in relief of Brett Mooneyham, who tossed three scoreless inings with a walk, a hit and two strikeouts. Fischer gave up two runs on two hits and a walk over four innings. Derek Self got the last four outs of the game for his second save. Wander Ramos reached base four times: a single, a double, and two walks and drove in three to pace the Auburn offense, which tallied 10 hits total.
