Corey Brown’s three-run homer off former National Zach Duke capped a four-run rally in the 8th for a 6-1 Syracuse lead. The bullpen nearly blew it, giving up four in the top of the 9th, but held on for 6-5 win. Tanner Roark was a two-way threat, pitching six strong innings with one run allowed on six hits and two walks while striking out four. At the plate, Roark was 2-for-2 with an RBI double. Tyler Moore was the second Chief with multiple hits (2-for-4) as Syracuse got 10 hits total.

RBI singles by Ricky Hague and Brian Goodwin capped a 6-5 comeback win for Harrisburg, snapping a four-game losing streak. Nathan Karns struck out 10 and walked three over six innings, but also gave up four runs on six hits, including a home run. Matt Grace got the win in relief, his fourth for the Senators, while Aaron Barrett pitched around two one-out singles for his 20th save. Jimmy Van Ostrand led the Harrisburg hit parade with three singles, followed by Carlos Rivero and Hague, who both singled, doubled, and scored a run. Roster moves: RHPs A.J. Cole, Richie Mirowski promoted from Potomac; RHP Blake Treinen placed on 7-Day DL.

David Fischer turned in three perfect innings for the hold, while Robert Benincasa got his eighth save in eight chances (18-for-18 overall) with a 1-2-3 ninth.

Greensboro rallied for two in the bottom of the 9th for a 3-2 win over Hagerstown. Gilberto Mendez let in an inherited runner on a double and the game winner on a two-out single for the blown-save loss. Starter Nick Lee got the no-decision with a run given up on seven hits, no walks and six strikeouts over six innings. The Suns were held to just two hits — doubles by Khayyan Norfork and Narciso Mesa — but cashed in two of the six walks drawn.

The Crosscutters got to Jake Johansen early and held off the Doubledays late for a 3-2 win over Auburn. Johansen pitched a season-high five frames, but gave up two runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk while striking out three. He was the losing pitcher. Silvio Medina finished the game with one run over the last four innings. Auburn notched nine hits but left eight runners on. Isaac Ballou led the charge with two singles and a solo home run in the 3rd. Roster moves: RHP Matt Derosier reassigned from the GCL, C Erick Fernandez released, RHP Joel Barrientos activated from the DL.

The G-Nats jumped out to a 4-0 lead with a pair of two-run innings as they won their sixth straight, 7-2 over the G-Marlins. Jefry Rodriguez got the start, but couldn’t go the requisite five for the win, falling two outs short while giving up three hits and three walks while fanning two. Adderling Ruiz, Shawn Pleffner, and Drew Ward each had two hits as the G-Nats collected nine altogether.

  1. Johansen’s numbers are pretty intriguing so far.

    He’s been unhittable. Only 8 hits in 22 innings, but his control concerns me (13 BB). Apparently his BABIP is .127, which is outrageously low, but then again he’s been a groundball machine, which would suppress that.

    Given that he’s quite a bit older than most other pitchers drafted around him, I hope the Nats will continue this new-found farm system aggressiveness and get him some time in Hagerstown before the season’s end.

  2. Harrisburgs defense was a completed embarrassment for Kearns last night. All but the home run should have been unearned!

  3. I keep seeing Bryan Harper at Nats park. At the All Star, the home run derby? Is he still on Hagerstown’s roster?

    • Yes. The Suns had a day game on the HR derby so he was able to fly up that afternoon (and, boy, were his arms tired).
