Syracuse resumes its eight-game homestand with a four-game set against the Toledo Mud Hens.

• Barrett 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Souza 2-4, R, HR, RBI
• Hood 2-3, R

Making a spot start because of all the rainouts, Ryan Tatusko gave the Senators seven strong innings as they edged the Flying Squirrels, 2-1. Tatusko walked four and gave up an unearned run on four hits while striking out four. Neil Holland and Aaron Barrett both turned in a scoreless inning to earn the hold and save respectively. Steve Souza homered in the first while Destin Hood singled and scored in the second, as the two combined for four of the six Harrisburg hits.

• Piwinica-Worms 2-4, R, 2B, 2RBI
• Manuel 2-3, R, 2B, RBI

Starter Brett Mooneyhamd gave up a run on a home run, and two hits total over five innings. He walked three and struck out five. Shawn Pleffner led the 11-hit attack with three singles, followed by Will Piwinica-Worms and Craig Manuel, who both doubled and singled and scored a run.

Gilberto Mendez, the fifth reliever of the night, got the win with two scoreless innings, walking one and striking out four.

  1. Seems as though a healthy McMillion @ Hagerstown
    Might have received the promotion , but hence the
    Gilmartin signing
    Man, that Hickory club is stacked with talent
    Proving how Nolan Ryan invested cable $$$
    Compared to Halos!

  2. Can any Harrisburg fans give a report on Souza’s play in CF? It seems as if whenever Goodwin gets a day off (which I hope was the case last night), Souza’s the go-to back up. Can he cut it in CF? Or his simply just the least-bad option amongst the non-Goodwin Senators?

  3. wondering if the front office is worried that they may have made a mistake skipping Potomac with Goodwin

  4. So, it seems like Souza is really lighting it up. He is actually hitting better than Rendon was before he got called up, which is pretty amazing. Does it seem likely that he has figured something out and we could see him with the big club in September?

  5. Pre- game cyber surfing
    What is the story behind DSL LHP
    Hector Silvestre on Potomac roster?
    Saturday another rain make- up DH
    For Hagerstown- third in a week???

  6. Rain rain rain. Causes those make up DHs
    Silvestre pitching for Potnats game 2
    Wander Sueve grabbing ball for Suns tomorrow
    Night?
    Hey hey, Jose Rijo ! Latin arms coming up after
    Your debacle!!

    • Same story (probably) on both: called up to make spot starts before they go back to the GCL and/or NYPL.

  7. 2 Martinson errors did not help Hector
    Silvestre.
    Blown save by bucket of balls in Hagerstown !
