• Owings 3-4, R, 2-2B, RBI
• Perez 2-4, R, HR, RBI

Ross Ohlendorf and Tanner Roark combined on a four-hit shutout as Syracuse won a rare home game versus Gwinnett, 5-0. Ohlendorf struck out 11 batter for the second straight start, allowing the Braves’ four hits and three walks. Roark’s streak without an earned run charged is now up to 18⅔ with two more scoreless innings. Micah Owings led the Chiefs attack with a single and a pair of doubles while Eury Perez and Corey Brown both homered.

Akron 3 Harrisburg 2 (15 inn.)
• Treinen 7IP, 7H, R, ER, BB, 3K
• Barrett (BS, 2) 1IP, 2H, R, ER, BB, 2K, HR

• Hague 2-6, R, 4K
• Lozada 2-6, 2K
• Souza 2-6, R, HR, 2RBI, 3K

A blown save on a home run in the ninth forced this one into extras as the Aeros outlasted the Senators, 3-2 in 15 innings. Starter Blake Treinen got the hard-luck no-decision with a run on seven hits and one walk, the win snatched away by Jesus Aguilar’s one-out homer off Aaron Barrett, who suffered his second blown save. Harrisburg hitters whiffed 19 times and stranded 11 runners, unable to capitalize on the five scoreless innings of relief by Matt Swynenberg.

Potomac 7 Salem 3
• Schwartz 5&#8532 IP, 7H, 3R, 3ER, 2BB, 2K, HR
• Grace (W, 3-0) 2⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, BB, 3K, 1-0 IR-S
• Martinson 2-4, 2-2B, RBI
• Taylor 1-3, 2B, 3RBI, SAC
• Burns 1-2, 3R, 3B, 2SB, BB

The two-out magic on offense continued for another game Last Night In Woodbridge.

Lexington 5 Hagerstown 2
• Anderson 6⅔ IP, 5H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 8K, HR
• McKenzie (L, 0-1) 1IP, 3H, 3R, 3ER, BB, 0K, HR
• Norfork 2-4, R, HR, 2RBI, SB
• Martinez 2-4, 2B

The home run did in the Suns as two Legends longballs accounted for four runs in a 5-2 loss. Dixon Anderson flirted with a no-hitter for four and 1/3rd innings, but finished with two runs on five hits and a walk over six and 2/3rds with eight strikeouts. Khayyan Norfork (2-for-4) tied it in the top of the 8th with a two-run shot, but Lexington got the sportswriter’s win with three runs in the last of the 8th against Chris McKenzie.

  1. Micah Owings’ batting line looks pretty good, until you get to his K’s. I guess that really what could have been expected as a best case. I hope that he and the Nats show mutual patience while he makes his adjustments. They sure could use a little more power with the big club, but not more strikeouts.

  2. Without a DH Owings needs lots of work to have a position to play with the big club. Also wait until he goes a little further into the season to see if his batting line numbers hold up as the league adjusts to him.

    • That sounds right. I hope the team eventually gets value from this experiment, either on the Nats or in a trade to an AL club.

    • as for defense, do you think you the drop off from Tyler Moore is significant?
