Pawrucket 8 Syracuse 3
• Maya (L, 6-8) 5⅓ IP, 8H, 6R, 6ER, 4BB, K, HR
• Pena ⅔ IP, 5H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, 0K, 3-3 IR-S
• Brown 2-5, 2B, 2RBI
• Carroll 2-4, CS

A six-run 6th by Pawtucket erased a 2-1 Syracuse lead as the Chiefs eventually fell to the PawSox, 8-3. Starter Yunesky Maya suffered the loss with six runs charged on eight hits and four walks. Hassan Pena let in three of those runs on a triple surrendered to the first batter he faced and eventually gave up two of his own runs over just 2/3rds-plus innings. Corey Brown led Syracuse’s offense with a single and a double and two RBI.

Akron 5 Harrisburg 4
• Tatusko (ND) 6⅔ IP, 1H, 2R, 2ER, 3BB, 7K, HR, 2HBP
• Frias (BS, 1; L, 3-4) 1⅓ IP, 2H, R, ER, BB, 2K, 1-1 IR-S
• Bloxom 2-3, R, HR, RBI
• Van Ostrand 2-4, 2B

After winning eight straight, the worm has turned for the Senators as Harrisburg lost its four straight game (all by one run), 3-2. Starter Ryan Tatusko gave up just one hit (a home run) over six and 2/3rds innings, but was charged with two runs and got the no-decision when Marcos Frias couldn’t strand Tatusko’s two-out walk in the bottom of the 7th. Frias took the loss, allowing a run on two hits and a walk in the 7th and 8th innings. Justin Bloxom homered in the top of the 7th to give the Sens a 2-1 lead and went 2-for-3 on the night overall.

Potomac 7 Lynchburg 6 (10 inn.)
• Olbrychowski 1⅔ IP, 6H, 5R, 5ER, BB, K, HR
• Demmin 4⅓ IP, 3H, R, ER, 0BB, 5K
• Holland (W, 5-1) 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Keyes 3-4, 2R, 2B, HR, 2RBI
• King 2-5, R, 2B, RBI
• Soriano 1-4, R, 2B, SF, 2RBI

The P-Nats rallied from a 6-1 deficit to win in 10 innings Last Night In Woodbridge.

Byron Kerr is reporting that Alex Meyer and Aaron Barrett will be promoted to Potomac, arriving in Woodbridge tomorrow (the Suns are traveling from Kentucky to Maryland), which has been echoed by multiple congratulatory tweets by their teammates. No word on the corresponding moves, but look for Jimmy Barthmaier and perhaps Adam Carr to be sent up Harrisburg to make room.

Lexington 10 Hagerstown 7
• Hill (L, 9-5) 5⅓ IP, 9H, 9R, 6ER, BB, 2K
• Holt 1⅔ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, K, 1-1 IR-S
• Dykstra 3-5, 2R, 2B, RBI, 3E
• Souza 2-5, 2R, 2B, HR, 3RBI
• Goodwin 2-5, R, HR, 2RBI, CS

Hagerstown couldn’t hold an early 5-0 lead and fell to Lexington in the series finale, 10-7. Starter Taylor Hill was battered for nine runs (six earned) on nine hits and a walk over five and 1/3rd innings. Steve Souza and Brian Goodwin both homered in the loss, while Cutter Dykstra singled twice and doubled once while going 3-for-5 with two runs scored.

Connecticut 6 Auburn 5
• Encarnacion 6IP, 8H, 4R, 4ER, 3BB, 4K
• Davis 2⅔ IP, 2H, 0R, 2BB, 3K, 3-0 IR-S
• Henke (L, 3-1) 2IP, 2H, R, ER, BB, K
• Ramos 3-5, 2-2B
• Pleffner 3-6, 2R, 2B, RBI

Auburn couldn’t walk off again, losing in 11 innings to Williamsport, 6-5. Travis Henke took the loss with a single and a triple given up in the 11th following a scoreless 10th. Wander Ramos led the offense with a single and two doubles, but despite 14 hits total, the Doubledays were an abysmal 1-for-16 with RISP, stranding 10 baserunners.

GCL Marlins 5 GCL Nationals 4
• Schwartz (ND) 5IP, 5H, R, ER, BB, 7K
• Boyden 1⅔ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, K
• Heredia (BS, 2; L, 1-2) 1IP, 2H, 3R, 3ER, BB, K, HR
• Mesa 3-5, R, RBI, SB
• Piwnica-Worms 1-3, 2B, BB, 2RBI, SB
• Difo 1-3, R, 2BB, 2SB (10)

With a three-run homer in the top of the 9th, the G-Marlins edged the G-Nats, 5-4. Inocencio Heredia coughed up the big the fly for his second blown save and second loss, giving up a double and a walk prior to the killshot. Narciso Mesa led the hit column with a 3-for-5 afternoon with a run scored and a stolen base.

DSL Nationals 1 DSL Pirates2 0
• Valerio (W, 1-4) 6IP, 2H, 0R, BB, 5K
• Benitez (SV, 2) 3IP, H, 0R, BB, 3K
• Marmolejos-Diaz 1-2, 2B, BB, RBI
• Bautista 1-4, 2B

Maximo Valerio and Juan Benitez combined on a three-hit shutout as the DSL Nationals edged the DSL Pirates2, 1-0. “Orange” Marmolejos-Diaz’s RBI double in the 4th proved to be the game-winner as the two teams each collected just three hits. Valerio gave up two hits and a walk over six innings to earn the win while Benitez allowed just a hit and a walk over the last three frames to earn the save.

  1. What do Eury Perez and, especially, Brian Goodwin have to do to get promoted?

    • Continue to play well? The case for Perez may be stronger than Goodwin because he’s already on the 40-man and is a candidate for a meaningful Sept. callup given the parent club’s lack of defensive OFs and RH bats off the bench. Goodwin is in his first full pro season, and has already missed 5 weeks, and the pattern under this F.O. has been to have prospects spend a full year at each level until AA.

    • Goodwin = stud

  2. One down, two to go on promotions to Potomac.
    For the record, Goodwin’s OPS is .979!
    And, they have $3 million invested in him, so you’d think they’d want to challenge him at some point.
    At the point of redundancy, Skole’s ready too.

  3. Poor Aaron Barrett.

    I must admit I cringe when stock-jock metaphors are applied to prospects. Maybe it’s an after-effect from having worked for The Motley Fool?
