Syracuse 2 Indianapolis 1
• Roark (W, 9-3) 7⅔ IP, 5H, 0R, BB, 5K
• Crotta (SV, 4) 1IP, 3H, R, ER, 0BB, 0K
• Walters 1-3, R, 2B
• Rhymes 2-3, BB
Tanner Roark threw a season-high seven and 2/3rds scoreless innings as the Chiefs reeled off their fifth win in six games, edging Indianapolis 2-1. Roark walked one, let up five hits and struck out five while earning his ninth win of the season. Mike Crotta wobbled in the 9th, giving up a run on three hits, but got the three outs he needed for his fourth save. Six of the eight Syracuse position players hit safely, with Will “Don’t Call Me Buster” Rhymes the sole Chief to get multiple hits with a 2-for-3 afternoon.
Portland 3 Harrisburg 2
• Karns (L, 7-4) 8IP, 5H, 3R, 3ER, 4BB, 8K, HR
• Jeroloman 2-2, 2B, 2BB, RBI
• Lozada 2-3, R, 2B, 2BB
• Rivero 2-4, RBI
The Senators outhit the Sea Dogs, 10-5, but lost the game, 3-2. Nathan Karns went the distance, giving up all three runs on five hits and four walks and striking out eight, but took the loss. Harrisburg led just once, 1-0, as Ricky Hague and Brian Jeroloman both doubled in the 2nd. Portland answered with two in its half of the 3rd for a 2-1 lead. Carlos Rivero knotted the score at 2-2 with an RBI single in the 7th, but a solo shot in the bottom of the inning proved to be the game-winner. The Senators were stymied the rest of the way, drawing just a two-out walk in the 8th and going down 1-2-3 in the ninth. Roster move: C Sandy Leon reassigned from Auburn.
Potomac 6 Salem 4
• Rauh ⅔ IP, 2H, 2R, 2ER, 2BB, K, 3WP
• Fischer 4IP, 4H, R, ER, 2BB, 4K, HR
• Bates (W, 3-4) 2IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 1K
• Keyes 1-4, R, HR(GS), 4RBI
• Oduber 2-3, R, 2B, RBI, BB
Kevin Keyes’s grand slam highlighted a six-run 8th in a 6-4 Potomac win over Salem. It came at the cost of eight-plus innings of bullpen work as starter Brian Rauh couldn’t make it out of the 1st, giving up two runs on two hits and two walks while getting just two outs. He also threw three wild pitches. Colin Bates got the win while Robert Benincasa got the save despite giving up a home run. The Keyes homer was the fourth hit of the inning as the P-Nats had been held to just two hits through seven innings (no-hit through 3⅓).
Hagerstown 5 Delmarva 1
• Dickson (W, 2-2) 6IP, 4H, R, ER, BB, 5K

• Mesa 2-4, R, 2B
• B. Miller 2-4, R, RBI
• Renda 1-2, R, BB, RBI, CS
Another strong pitching performance by the Suns pitchers coupled with a big inning on offense was the recipe to take the game, 5-1, and the series 3-1. Ian Dickson won his second straight start with six innings of one-run ball, allowing four hits and a walk while striking out five. Three Suns relievers followed with a goose egg apiece. Hagerstown put up four in the 4th with five hits, including back-to-back-to-back RBIs by Brandon Miller, Mike McQuillan, and “Help Me” Wander Ramos. Miller and Narciso Mesa both went 2-for-4, combining for four of the Suns eight hits.

• Mudron (H, 1) 2IP, 1H, 0R, 2BB, 2K
• Yezzo 2-4, R
• Gunter 1-3, R, BB, RBI
Auburn put up three in the 3rd and two more in the 7th for a 5-2 win that snapped a four-game losing streak. Starter Ryan Ullmann rebounded from an eight-run pounding last week in Vermont with a quality start of two runs (both unearned) on six hits and no walks over six innings for his first NYPL win. Mike Mudron followed with two scoreless innings for the hold while Jake Joyce pitched around a pair of hits and a walk in the 9th for his first first professional save. James Yezzo led the Doubledays offense, going 2-for-4 with a run scored. Roster move: RHP Ryan Ullmann reactivated.
