The Chiefs batters roasted the Mud Hens pitchers for 15 hits as they scored five runs early and held off a late Toledo charge for a 6-4 win. Danny Rosenbaum rebounded again from a poor outing with seven innings of one-run ball, though he did walk five and allow five hits with six strikeouts. Jeff Kobernus singled and doubled twice to lead the offensive outburst. Erik Davis loaded the bases in the 9th with two singles and a walk but induced a popup to end it and earn his fifth save.
Roster move: RHP Jeremy Accardo activated from the 7-Day DL.

Taylor Jordan threw six scoreless innings with just one hit and one walk allowed while setting down nine on strikes for his first AA win, as Harrisburg held off a late surge from Reading for a 6-4 win. Ricky Hague and Anthony Rendon both homered and drove in three runs to power the Senators attack. Tyler Herron’s return to AA after a four-year absence was one to forget with three runs on three hits and a walk with two strikeouts. Aaron Barrett locked it down 1-2-3 in the 9th for his seventh save.

• Ray 6⅓ IP, 2H, 2R, 2ER, 3BB, 9K

For the second night in a row, the Potomac ‘pen blew the lead, allowing Winston-Salem to tie it in the 9th and win it in the 10th. Ray struck out nine and walked three and finished with six and 1/3rd innings pitched, with two runs charged on two hits. Adrian Nieto and Wilmer Difo combined for five hits; Justin Miller had the sixth and the only extra-base knock. Roster move: UT Francisco Soriano reassigned from Syracuse.

  1. The Chiefs outfield might be the best they’ve had in a long while with Kobernus, Brown, and Rahl. All three are capable of killing it at the plate. Kobernus seems to have adjusted well to left field and the other two are superior outfielders.

    Syracuse should have a better record but starting pitching hasn’t been the best since Chris Young joined the rotation.

  2. Kobernus has been the best of a revolving door at lf. The infield has suffered especially at short where Walters makes too many throwing errors. The real culprit is the starting rotation the chiefs have trailed 17 times after the first inning this year. Too often the offense has to play catchup and too often to big leads. Having Brown back helps but the fact that the Nats will start Duke for the injured Detwiller instead of bringing someone up tells the whole story.
