Syracuse Chiefs — OFF DAY
The Chiefs’ eight-game Ohio swing continues with a four-game weekend set in Columbus. After a 3-1 series win in Toledo, Syracuse is 13-9 on the road and has climbed out of the I.L. North cellar, a ½ game ahead of the Rochester Red Wings.

Erie 7 Harrisburg 6
• Karns 6IP, 8H, 5R, 4ER, BB, 9K, 2HR
• Broadway 1⅓ 2H, 0R, 0BB, K
• Barrett (BS, 1; L, 1-1) ⅔ IP, 2H, 2R, 1ER, 0BB, 0K
• Head 2-4, R, 2B, HR, RBI, OF assist at 2B
• Hood 2-4, R, 2B, OF assist at HP
• Nicol 1-3, R, HR, 4RBI, SF

In a game that saw six lead changes, it was the last that hurt the most as a two-out single drove in the tying run and an error let in the winning run as the Seawolves stopped the Senators, 7-6. Starter Nathan Karns suffered his first multi-HR game as a pro, surrendering two solo shots and five runs total on eight hits and a walk while striking out nine. Sean Nicol drove in four, three with a HR in the 4th and fourth with a sacrifice fly in the 9th. Jerad Head and Ricky Hague also went deep. Aaron Barrett put on the first two batters he faced but then got two flyball outs before giving up a second hit for the single-and-error that halted the Harrisburg win streak at five. Roster moves: LHP Bill Bray was placed on the 7-Day DL to make room for RHP Rob Gilliam, who was promoted from Potomac.

Potomac vs. Frederick — PPD
Apparently, just the threat of rain can cause a delay as the P-Nats and Keys waited more than an hour before any rain actually fell at which point the game was called due to the “threat of increasingly torrential thunderstorms.” The game is scheduled to be made up on June 14th, when two teams next meet in Frederick and will turn a four-game set into a five-game series (and quite possibly six, given today’s forecast).

Greensboro 6 Hagerstown 2
• Turnbull (L, 2-2) 4IP, 5H, 5R, 0ER, BB, K, 0HR
• Henke 3IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Ramos 2-3, R, BB, RBI, SB
• Severino 1-3, 2B, BB

The good news is that none of the five runs Kylin Turnbull gave up were earned. The bad news is that they still count on the scoreboard, which ended with Greensboro on top of Hagerstown, 6-2. Turnbull gave up five hits and one walk, struck out one, but gave up no homers for the first time in five starts for the Suns. “Help Me” Wander Ramos singled twice, scored a run, drove in a run, and stole a base to pace the Hagertown offense, which was held to seven hits and four walks and mustered just one hit in 12 chances with runners in scoring position.
