A six-run 2nd put ended this one early as Syracuse belted four home runs in an 11-4 smackdown of Rochester. Chris Rahl’s two-run HR started the big inning and a bases-loaded walk ended the scoring binge. Eury Perez led off the 3rd with a solo shot, his sixth of the season after entering 2013 with a career total of eight. Corey Brown’s solo shot in the 8th, his second big fly of the night, plated the 11th Chiefs run. Tanner Roark got the win with four runs allowed on five hits, no walks, and five strikeouts over six innings.

Starter Nathan Karns went eight strong innings, giving up a pair of runs on a trio of hits and walks while fanning seven to tie departed Taylor Jordan for the team lead in pitching wins. He threw 106 pitches, 70 for strikes. Steve Souza missed the cycle by hitting the ball too far too often, with a pair of doubles, a triple, and a home run to lead the 17-hit onslaught. Roster moves: OF Destin Hood activated from the 7-Day DL; UT Sean Nicol placed on the 7-Day DL; C Sandy Leon placed on the 7-Day DL, retroactive to 7/13; C Brian Jeroloman activated from 7-Day DL, reassigned from Harrisburg.

Stephen Perez hit the only Hagerstown home run, a grand slam in the 9th. Nick Lee got the win with a run on two hits and two walks while striking out five.
