Syracuse 5 Durham 3
• Rosenbaum (W, 3-2) 7IP, 4H, 2R, 1ER, BB, 7K, HBP
• Davis (SV, 4) 1IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Costanzo 2-4, R, 2B, HR, 3RBI
• Walters 2-4, R, 2-2B
• Rhymes 3-4, RBI, CS, SB
Mike Costanzo homered and drove in three runs to power the Syracuse offense as the Chiefs won their third straight over the Bulls, 5-3. Danny Rosenbaum continued his dominance over Durham with another seven strong innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk while piling up a season-high seven strikeouts. J.C. Romero, Jeff Mandel, and Fernando Abad split the eighth, each earning a hold while Erik Davis came on again the 9th for the save, his fourth of the season.
Altoona 7 Harrisburg 6 (10 inn.)
• Treinen 3⅓ IP, 8H, 6R, 6ER, 2BB, 3K, HR
• Broadway 2⅔ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K, 1-0 IR-S
• Rendon 2-3, R, 2B, HR, 4RBI, 2BB
• Goodwin 2-4, 3R, BB, SB
Anthony Rendon’s two-out, two-run HR tied it in the 9th for Harrisburg, but Altoona answered with a solo shot in the top of the 10th and held off the Senators for a 7-6 win. Rendon also doubled and drew two walks, driving in four runs altogether to pace the Harrisburg attack, followed closely by Brian Goodwin’s 2-for-4 effort with three runs scored, a walk, and a stolen base. Michael Broadway and Pat McCoy combined for four and 2/3rds scoreless innings of relief, enabling the comeback from a 6-3 deficit.
Potomac 3 Wilmington 2 (6 inn.)
• Ray (W, 3-1) 5IP, 2H, 2R, 2ER, 2BB, 7K, HR
• Martinson 1-2, BB, RBI
• Burns 0-1, BB, SB(15)
Rain shortened this one to five-plus innings as Potomac beat Wilmington, 3-2. Robbie Ray got the win, technically a complete game, with two runs allowed on two hits and two walks. His seven strikeouts pushes his Carolina League-leading total to 48. The P-Nats managed just one hit, an RBI single by Jason Martinson in the first. The Blue Rocks battery had a rough night — six walks, two hit batsmen, two wild pitches, and a passed ball. Most of the miscues came in the 5th inning when Potomac scored twice with just one ball leaving the infield (a sacrifice fly by Michael Taylor).
Hagerstown Suns — OFF DAY
After a 5-1 swing through Georgia, Hagerstown comes home for four against Delmarva, leading the Sally League North by a ½ game over Hickory. Roster moves: With the return of Khayyan Norfork from Potomac, IF Matt Foat has been transferred to XST.
