Rochester 10 Syracuse 5 (11 inn.)
• Ohlendorf ⅔ IP, 1H, 1R, 1ER, 0BB, 0K, 3-3 IR-S

Ross Ohlendorf was called upon to get out of the bases-loaded, one-out situation when play was halted on Wednesday night but served up a triple to empty the bases to the first batter he faced then gave up his own run on a groundout to the second batter before a popup to the third batter ended the five-run Rochester 11th. The Chiefs went in order in the bottom half to complete the 10-5 extra-inning loss.

Rochester 10 Syracuse 7
• Maya 5⅓ IP, 10H, 7R, 7ER, 2BB, 3K
• Romero (L, 0-1) 1⅔ IP, 2H, R, ER, BB, 3K
• Walters 2-4, R, 2B, RBI
• Rhymes 2-4, R
• Kobernus 2-5, 2R, SB

Rochester scored in six of nine frames, including a picket fence in the last three to pull away with a 10-7 win over the Syracuse Chiefs. Starter Yunesky Maya pitched into the sixth, but gave up seven runs on 10 hits and two walks and struck out just three. J.C. Romero was pushed an inning too far, giving up a run on two hits in his second inning of work after stranding three in his first, and took the loss. Zach Walters paced the Syracuse offense with a single, double, and an RBI.

HARRISBURG — OFF DAY
It’s a swing up and down 95 this upcoming week as the Senators head to Bowie for three this weekend, then a jaunt up to Connecticut for four in New Britain next week. Harrisburg is on a five-game slide but trails its division by just two as parity reigns in the Eastern League as all 10 teams are within four games of .500 in either direction.

Carolina 4 Potomac 1
• Hill (L, 3-1) 5IP, 8H, 4R, 2ER, 0BB, K, HR
• Grace 2IP, 0H, 0R, BB, 2K
• Taylor 2-4, R, HR, RBI, OF assist at 1B
• Nieto 2-4

No lights were shattered as the P-Nats fell to the Mudcats 4-1 for a 3-1 series loss. A leadoff homer by Carolina’s Tyler Naquin quashed any hopes of Taylor Hill pitching back-to-back shutouts. Naquin would strike again in the third with a double and come around to score what proved to be the gamewinner. Hill would give up all four runs (two earned) on eight hits over five innings but suffered the loss, his first of the season. Michael Taylor remains red-hot, connecting for a solo HR in the first and going 2-for-4 on the night (as did Adrian Nieto) as the P-Nats collected eight hits total but got just five men into scoring position and left on six.

Hagerstown 4 Augusta 0 — GAME ONE
• Pena (W, 1-2) 5IP, 3H, 0R, 3BB, 2K
• Rauh 2IP, 1H, 0R, BB, K
• S. Perez 2-2, R, 2B, HR, 3RBI
• Schill 0-1, 2R, 2BB

It was the Stephen Perez show in the opener, as the 22-year-old from Miami doubled and homered and drove in three of the four Hagerstown runs in a 4-0 shutout of Augusta. Fellow Floridian Ronald Pena got his first Low-A win, tossing five innings of shutout ball with three hits and three walks allowed and two strikeouts. Brian Rauh closed out the game with a pair of goose eggs and two baserunners allowed.

Augusta 3 Hagerstown 2 — GAME TWO
• Encarnacion 3⅓ IP, 5H, 3R, 0ER, 2BB, K
• Henke 2⅔ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K, 3-0 IR-S
• Pleffner 2-3, 2-2B, 2RBI
• B. Miller 1-3, OF assist at 2B

Shawn Pleffner nearly matched Perez in the nightcap by driving in both Suns runs on a pair of doubles, but the proverbial one bad inning was enough for Augusta to edge Hagerstown, 3-2. Two errors made it too hard for starter and losing pitcher Pedro Encarnacion to work around three singles, as the GreenJackets scored all three (unearned), including the game-winner on a bases-loaded walk. Encarnacion gave up five hits and two walks total over three and 1/3rd innings. Travis Henke worked out of the jam with a double-play and went two more innings, but the Hagerstown offense was held to just four hits total (six for the doubleheader).

  1. Taylor’s assist at 1b – was that a flyout/double play where the runner misread the ball, or was it the dreaded 9-3 putout? Being slow, I always busted a little harder down the line to avoid being thrown out at first by an outfielder lol

  2. No, Taylor’s a CF — it was listed as a line-out double play in the GameDay version of the box score (8th inning).

    Having watched him, he most likely raced in on low line drive and snared it, then showed off his former-SS arm to get the DP.

  3. Kobe in LF. Has this already been discussed?

    • Last I heard Bryant was out for the sea… oh, wait. Kobernus was playing OF for Detroit in an effort to make the team as a Rule 5 pick and it would appear the Nats are continuing that trend if/when he is called up or to enhance his value as trade bait. Not been discussed much, aside from his hot start making the Tigers regret their decision to return him.
