Syracuse 6 Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 6 — SUSP., 12th inn.
• Maya 5⅔ IP, 9H, 5R, 5ER, 2BB, 7K
• Broadway 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 4K
• Marrero 3-6, R, 2B, RBI
• Rahl 3-6, R

The RailRiders erased an early 6-1 Chiefs lead with four in the 6th and one in the 7th. The two teams traded zeroes into extras when a Sharknado struck rain halted play at the end of the 11th. The two teams will resume play when they next meet on August 6th in Syracuse.

Harrisburg 2 Erie 0
• Hill (W, 2-2) 6IP, 5H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Herron (H, 2) 1⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, K, 1-0 IR-S
• Barrett (SV, 19) 1⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, BB, K
• Head 2-4
• Rivero 2-4

Steven Souza’s HR in the 1st was all the Sens would need as four pitchers combined to shut out the SeaWolves, 2-0. Taylor Hill evened up his won-loss record at 2-2 with six scoreless innings, giving up five hits, no walks, but striking out just one. Aaron Barrett got the last four outs for his 19th save. Harrisburg piled up 10 hits to Erie’s six, with Jerad Head and Carlos Rivero both going 2-for-4.
Roster moves: RHP Blake Treinen placed on 7-Day DL, retroactive to 7/5; C Kris Watts reassigned from Syracuse.

Salem 4 Potomac 3
• Rauh (L, 1-1) 5IP, 6H, 4R, 4ER, 2BB, 2K, 2HR
• Benincasa 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Taylor 2-4, R, HR, 3RBI
• Burns 1-1, R, HBP (leg) in 2nd inn.
• Miller 1-3, 2B (PR for Burns)

All seven runs scored on just three swings, as Salem outhomered Potomac 2-1 in a 4-3 victory. Michael Taylor’s three-run blast in the top of the 1st was negated by Matt (yes, the son of Rich) Gedman’s Earl Weaver special in the bottom of the 2nd. Stefan Welch’s solo shot in the 3rd proved to be the gamewinner. Starter and losing pitcher Brian Rauh gave up all four Salem runs and six hits total over five innings, walking two and striking out two. Taylor went 2-for-4 overall while Adrian Nieto reached base three times with a single and two walks as the P-Nats racked up eight hits total. Roster move: LHP Justin Thomas transferred from Auburn.

Rome 6 Hagerstown 5
• Lee 6IP, 5H, 4R, 4ER, 4BB, 7K
• C. Davis (H, 4; L, 1-2) 1⅓ IP, 3H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, 4K
• Self (BS, 2) 1⅔ IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, K, 3-2 IR-S
• Martinez 2-5, R
• Mesa 1-3, R, RBI, BB, SB

Rome loaded the bases with three straight singles with one out off Cody Davis in the 8th and greeted Derek Self with a fourth, turning a 5-4 deficit into the eventual winning score of 6-5 over Hagerstown. The comeback was the second of the game as the Braves took a 4-1 lead after two innings that the Suns erased with three in the 5th and one in the 6th. Starter Nick Lee got the no-decision with a line of four runs in five hits and four walks over six innings while striking out seven. Five separate players had RBIs as the Suns scored five times on eight hits, with Estarlin Martinez leading the attack with a 2-for-5 night.
Roster move: OF Wander Ramos activated from 7-Day DL.

Auburn 4 Brooklyn 3
• Orlan 6IP, 6H, 3R, 2ER, BB, 7K
• Joyce 2IP, 3H, 0R, 0BB, K
• Napoli (W, 1-0) 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, K
• Dent 2-3, R, 2B
• Difo 2-4, 2R, 2B, 3B, SF, RBI

A leadoff double, a botched sacrifice, and an intentional walk loaded the bases in the bottom of the 9th for Wilmer Difo, who delivered a sacrifice fly for a 4-3 walkoff for Auburn. The overmanaging helped secure the first professional win for David Napoli, who set Brooklyn down 1-2-3 in the top of the 9th. R.C. Orlan got the start and allowed all three Cyclones runs on six hits and a walk over the first six innings while fanning seven. Difo also doubled and tripled in the game, scoring twice while going 2-for-4 to lead the Doubleday offense. Roster moves: LHP Todd Simko, RHP Will Hudgins retired; IF Matt Foat reassigned from Hagerstown.

GCL Nationals 7 GCL Mets 0
• Mattheus 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Suero (W, 1-1) 5IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 2K
• Bautista 2-4, 2R, BB
• R. Encarnacion 2-4, R, 2B, BB

A five-run 5th broke open a 1-0 game as the G-Nats shut out the G-Mets on three hits, 7-0. Ryan Mattheus struck out the side in the first in his first appearance since breaking his hand. Wander Suero tossed five scoreless innings, allowing a hit and a walk while setting down two on strikes to earn the win. Rafael Bautista and Randy Encarnacion both went 2-for-4 with a walk to pace the G-Nats 10-hit, four-walk offense. Roster move: RHP Ryan Mattheus assigned from Washington for MLB rehab.

DSL Yankees1 11 DSL Nationals 2
• Torres (L, 0-3) 4⅓ IP, 7H, 5R, 2ER, BB, 4K
• Charlis 1⅔ IP, 0H, 0R, 3BB, 3K
• Mendoza 2-4
• Lora 1-4, R, HR, RBI

The D-Yankees1 scored six times in the final three innings in an 11-2 beatdown, the third straight loss for the D-Nats. Luis Torres suffered his third loss without a wain with five runs given up on seven hits and a walk over four and a 1/3rd innings. The 18-y.o. Venezuelan struck out four. Pedro Mendoza was the sole D-Nat to get multiple hits, going 2-for-4. 17-y.o. Edwin Lora got his first professional home run, a solo shot in the 6th.

  1. Why the heck is Will Hudgins retiring?? His twitter feed gives little clue. His numbers are great this year, he’s already been promoted up the food chain once. So weird. Even Simko doesn’t make any sense either. Any insights out there?
