SYRACUSE CHIEFS — PPD
Rain postponed Sunday’s series finale and will be made up today with a doubleheader in Syracuse.
Richmond 6 Harrisburg 3 (5½ inn.)
• Rosenbaum (L, 7-9) 4+IP, 6H, 6R, 4ER, 3BB, 4K
• Tatusko 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, K, 2-0 IR-S
• Goodwin 2-3, R, 3B, RBI
• Nicol 2-2, 2RBI
Danny Rosenbaum failed to retire any of the six batters he faced in the four-run 5th as Senators dropped a rain-shortened series finale, 6-3. The 24-year-old southpaw gave up six runs (four earned) on six hits and three walks but suffered his 9th loss. The Senators rallied for two in their half of the 5th to cut the deficit from 6-1 to 6-3, but the umpires called it after waiting 47 minutes midway through the 6th, killing the chance for comeback and a three-game sweep. Brian Goodwin and Sean Nicol accounted for four of Harrisburg’s nine hits and all three RBI. Roster moves: Geoff Morrow of the Patriot News is reporting C James Skelton will return from Potomac, OF J.R. Higley will return to Hagerstown.
Winston-Salem 6 Potomac 4
• Grace (L, 6-11) 3IP, 9H, 5R, 5ER, BB, 2K, 0HR
• Barrett 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, K, HBP
• Ramirez 2-4
• Soriano 2-4, 3B
Make it a perfect 0-for-10 at BB&T Park as the Potomac Nationals lost again in Winston-Salem, 6-4. Starter Matt Grace was skewered for five runs on nine hits (seven singles, a double, and a triple) and a walk over three innings to lose his team-leading 11th game. Joe Testa, Aaron Barrett, and Neil Holland combined for one run over five innings of relief, but the offense could only manage one four-run outburst in the 6th. J.P. Ramirez and Francisco Soriano paced the P-Nats offense with 2-for-4 efforts.
Lexington 16 Hagerstown 6
• Jordan (L, 0-2) 3IP, 5H, 5R, 5ER, 2BB, 4K, HR
• Ramsey 3-5, R, 2-2B
• Burns 3-5, 2B, RBI, CS, E
• Alvarez 2-3, R, 2B, 3B, BB, RBI
Lexington ran roughshod over Hagerstown for the second straight game, turning a 3-0 deficit into a 16-6 beatdown. Starter Taylor Jordan lasted just three innings, giving up five runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four. None of the four Suns pitchers emerged unscathed, with each of the three relievers giving up three or more runs. Caleb Ramsey and Billy Burns combined to go 6-for-10 with three doubles to pace the Hagerstown offense. Roster move: RHP Wilson Eusebio activated from DL.
Brooklyn 8 Auburn 0 (8 inn.)
• Mooneyham (L, 1-1) 1⅔ IP, 5H, 6R, 3ER, 2BB, 3K, HR
• Henke 2⅓ IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 2K
• E. Martinez 1-3, BB (17-gm hit streak)
• Manuel 1-2, BB
Though Johan Santana did toss three rehab innings with the expected results (0R, 1H, 1BB, 3K), the Doubledays made the rest of the Cyclones pitchers look good in a rain-shortened 8-0 shutout. Starter Brett Mooneyham was knocked around for six runs (three earned) on five hits and two walks over an inning and 2/3rds. Auburn mustered just four hits while committing four errors, though Estarlin Martinez did extend his hit streak to 17 games with a single in the top half of the 8th. Roster move: Auburn PR man Eli Pearlstein has announced that Anthony Rendon’s rehab stint with the Doubedays is over and will return to the Potomac Nationals, most likely on Tuesday in Myrtle Beach.
GCL NATIONALS — OFF DAY
It’s Cardinals, Marlins, then Astros and home games on Monday, Wednesday, and a doubleheader on Friday. Roster move: RHP Chris McKenzie assigned from Hagerstown (rehab).
DSL NATIONALS — OFF DAY
This week’s opponents are the DSL Cubs2, Mets1, and Yankees1 squads with home games on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday. Roster move: LHP Raul Ruiz, a 21-y.o. that was previously with VSL Pirates from 2008-2010, assigned from Washington.
