Gwinnett 5 Syracuse 1 &mdash: GAME ONE
• Rosenbaum (L, 5-4) 4IP, 6H, 2R, 1ER, BB, 3K, HBP
• Accardo 2IP, 5H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 2K, HR
• Rivero 1-2, BB
• Rahl 1-3, OF assist at HP
Gwinnett’s Cody Martin stifled Syracuse for seven innings as the Braves cruised past the Chiefs, 5-1 in the opener. Starter Danny Rosenbaum struggled early, loading the bases in the 1st and hitting a batter and letting in an unearned run on his own error in the 2nd. He finished with a walk and six hits allowed over four innings. The Braves broke it open with a three-spot against Jeremy Accardo, with all three runs coming via the home run. Carlos Rivero was the sole batter to reach base twice, going 1-for-2 with a walk.
Syracuse 1 Gwinnett 0 &mdash: GAME TWO
• Roark (W, 4-3) 5IP, 4H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Crotta (H, 6) 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Rahl 3-3, R, 2B, SB, CS
• Brown 1-2, BB, RBI
Chris Rahl singled, stole second, took third on an error and scored on a Corey Brown RBI single in the 1st. Tanner Roark, Mike Crotta, and Erik Davis combined on a six-hit shutout to make it stand up for a 1-0 win in the night cap. Roark tossed five innings in the spot start, giving up four hits and no walks while striking out one. Crotta pitched a 1-2-3 6th and Davis danced around a pair of singles in the 7th to earn the save, his 8th. Rahl singled and doubled in subsequent ABs for a 3-for-3 game that led the Chiefs offense.
New Hampshire 7 Harrisburg 0
• Demny (L, 5-5) 6IP, 8H, 6R, 5ER, BB, 6K, WP
• Herron 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Goodwin 1-4, 2B
New Hampshire broke open a 2-0 lead with a four-run 6th en route to a 7-0 shutout of Harrisburg. Marcus Walden needed just 90 pitches to go the distance against the Senators, allowing just three hits and no walks. Paul Demny took the loss, coughing up six runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out six over six innings. Brian Goodwin was the sole Harrisburg batter to reach second on his own accord, doubling in the 6th. If the Nationals will indeed sacrifice long-term development in favor of short-term need, Taylor Jordan’s next start coincides with the spot vacated by the “injured” Dan Haren on Saturday.
