SYRACUSE — PPD
A power failure postponed the game until August 12, the fireworks until next Saturday night.
Richmond 4 Harrisburg 0 — GAME ONE
• Wang 4+ IP, 7H, 3R, 2ER, 0BB, 3K
• VanAllen 1IP, 1H, 0R, BB, K
• Perez 1-3
• Kobernus 1-3, SB(35)
Chien-Ming Wang proved again he can lose at any level, giving up seven hits and three runs in a 4-0 loss in the opening game of the Harrisburg-Richmond doubleheader. The Senators were held to just four hits and a walk, with just three (3) baserunners getting into scoring position and all five men stranded.
Harrisburg 3 Richmond 2 — GAME TWO
• Perry 5IP, 5H, R, ER, BB, 6K
• Davis (W, 7-2) 1⅓ IP, 2H, R, ER, 0BB, K
• Nelo (SV, 13) ⅔ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, K, 1-0 IR-S
• Perez 2-3
• Van Ostrand 2-3
• Walters 1-3, R, HR, 3RBI
Zach Walter’s three-run HR in the bottom of the 6th broke up a streak of 12 scoreless inning as the Senators salvaged a doubleheader split with a 3-2 win in the nightcap. Ryan Perry’s conversion to starting continues to succeed as the 25-y.o. lowered his ERA to 1.66 with a run over five innings, but had a no-decision. Erik Davis got the win, though he was touched for a run in the 7th and needed some help from Hector Nelo, who got the last two outs for his 13th save.
Wilmington 3 Potomac 1
• Grace (L, 4-9) 6IP, 5H, 2R, 2ER, 2BB, 5K
• Barthmaier 2IP, 2H, R, ER, 0BB, 2K
• Keyes 1-3, R, HR, RBI
• Sanchez 2-2, CS
• Ramirez 1-3, 2B
The Blue Rocks struck for two runs early and held on for a 3-1 win. Kevin Keyes provided the “1″ with his 12th HR, homering in back-to-back games for the fourth time this season. Matt Grace turned in second quality start since back-to-back 10-run outings last month but was the losing pitcher despite allowing just two runs on five hits and two walks over six innings. He also struck out a season-high of five.
Greensboro 7 Hagerstown 2
• Hansen 3+ IP, 6H, 6R, 4ER, 4BB, 0K
• Holt 3IP, 0H, 0R, BB, 4K, 3-1 IR-S
• Souza 2-4, RBI
• Burns 1-2, R, 2BB, RBI, SB
No need to tell Bobby Hansen Jr. it was Friday the 13th yesterday — he faced eight batters in the fourth without retiring any of them, committing two errors after back-to-back singles, then another single, then walking three in a nightmarish six-run inning. The Suns lost this one 7-2, as the Hagerstown batters were limited to just six hits. Steve Souza Jr. extended his hit streak to nine games with a 2-for-4 night.
Auburn 10 Aberdeen 0
• Lee 6IP, 1H, 0R, 2BB, 3K
• Davis 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 4K
• McQuillan 3-4, R, 3B, BB, RBI
• E. Martinez 3-5, 2B, 2RBI
Three Doubledays pitchers combined on a one-hit shutout Last Night In Aberdeen.
GCL Nationals 1 GCL Astros 0
• Pineyro 5IP, 1H, 0R, 2BB, 5K
• Barrientos 3IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 4K
• Dicharry (W, 2-1) 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Foat 1-3, RBI
With two outs, James Brooks was hit by a pitch, took second on a wild pitch, and scored on Matt Foat’s RBI single for a 1-0 walkoff win by the GCL Nationals over the GCL Astros. The unlikely run made a winner out of Kevin Dicharry, the third of three G-Nats pitchers, who combined on a four-hit shutout with two walks and nine strikeouts. Foat’s safety was just the fifth of the game as the G-Nats were held to five singles and no walks.
DSL Nationals 6 DSL “Redbacks” 2
• Silvestre (W, 3-2) 5IP, 4H, 1R, 0ER, 2BB, K
• Acevedo (H, 1) 2IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Bautista 2-4, R, BB, 2SB
• Marmolejos-Diaz 2-4, 2B, 2RBI
With two runs in the 5th and three in the 6th, the D-Nats broke open a 1-1 game and cruised to a 6-2 victory over the Arizona/Cincinnati DSL squad. Hector Silvestre got the win with an unearned run on four hits and two walks. Rafael Bautista and “Orange” Marmolejos-Diaz both went 2-for-4, with Bautista swiping two bags and Diaz driving in two runs.
