Syracuse 8 Columbus 4
• Rosenbaum (W, 5-2) 7IP, 4H, 3R, 3ER, 4BB, 4K, HR, WP, HBP, BK
• Accardo 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Rivero 2-3, R, RBI
• Brown 2-5, R, 2B, HR, 3RBI
Corey Brown’s three-run shot in the 5th inning broke a 3-3 tie as the Chiefs went on to double up the Clippers, 8-4. Danny Rosenbaum got his team-leading fifth win with seven uneven innings, giving up three runs on four hits and four walks with four strikeouts. He also gave up a home run and hit a batter. Chris Marrero homered while Zach Walters connected for a doubled and drove in two runs as Syracuse scored its eight runs on just eight hits and five walks.
Harrisburg 9 Reading 2
• Gilliam (W, 1-0) 5IP, 3H, R, ER, 0BB, 7K, HR
• Rauh (SV, 1) 4IP, 1H, R, ER, BB, 2K
• Johnson 3-4, 3R, 2HR, BB, 5RBI
• Hood 2-4, R, HR, 3RBI
• Souza 2-4, 2R, BB
The three newest Senators on the Harrisburg roster all played key roles in a 9-2 win over Reading. Starter Rob Gilliam struck out seven and gave a run (on a home run) on three hits and no walks over five innings. Brian Rauh, called up from Hagerstown hours earlier, tossed four innings of one-run ball for the save. Steven Souza Jr. came off the DL and picked up where he left off with two singles and a walk. Josh Johnson and Destin Hood went deep as the Senators returned to .500 (24-24) with the win.
Lynchburg 7 Potomac 3
• Hill (L, 4-2) 4⅔ IP, 10H, 7R, 7ER, 0BB, 2K
• Holt 3⅓ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 0K, 2-1 IR-S
• Taylor 2-3, R, 2BB, RBI, SB
• Nieto 2-3, BB
• 2-for-14 RISP, 10 LOB
The curse of the GBI lives… Taylor Hill (Potomac’s “Good” for this week) was knocked around for seven runs on 10 hits over four and 2/3rds as the Hillcats downed the P-Nats 7-3. After letting in one of two runners with a single to the first batter he faced, Greg Holt retired 10 in a row to finish the game. The lockdown performance went for naught as Potomac could only muster three runs, as they struggled to get the clutch hit and stranded 10 baserunners.
Hagerstown 6 Lexington 0

Offensively, Stephen Perez, Will Piwinica-Worms, and Brandon Miller combined for six hits and four runs batted in.
