Eury Perez’s three-run triple highlighted a four-run 7th as the Chiefs won their fourth straight, 8-5, over the Knights. Syracuse rapped out a baker’s dozen of hits, with Corey Brown leading the charge with a single, double, and a homer (#18) and two runs scored. Tyler Robertson got the win with two perfect innings in relief. Starter Ryan Tatusko labored through five innings, giving up four runs on eight hits and five walks for the no-decision.

In battle of the E.L. West’s top two teams, Erie reclaimed 1st place with a 4-1 win over Harrisburg. A.J. Cole turned in his fifth quality start out of six for the Sens, letting in three runs on four hits, no walks, and striking out nine, but lost for the second time. Carlos Rivero doubled and scored a run, Destin Hood singled twice, while the rest of the Harrisburg lineup went 3-for-26 with a walk. Patriot News beat writer Geoff Morrow is reporting that OF Steve Souza Jr. will rejoin the team today after finishing up a four-game rehab tour of Viera.

Brett Mooneyham and the strike zone were barely acquainted in his Carolina League debut as he walked six and gave up six runs in a 6-2 loss to Winston-Salem. The southpaw threw 75 pitches in three innings, giving up five hits, including a first-pitch fastball that Dash catcher Kevan Smith launched some 25′ over CF wall. Colin Bates, Travis Henke, and Rob Wort combined for six shutout innings. The P-Nats bats, however, were silent until the final two innings, when Michael Taylor drew a bases-loaded walk to break up the shutout in the 8th and Randolph Oduber tripled in the second run in the 9th.

Hagerstown broke a 3-3 tie with a five-run 7th en route to an 8-3 win over Lakewood. Austin Voth (ryhmes with both) got the no-decision in his Sally League debut, allowing three runs on six hits and a walk over four and 2/3rds innings. Cody Davis finished out the 5th and pitched a scoreless 6th and got the win. Mike McQuillan and Will Piwinica-Worms both went 3-for-4 to lead the 10-hit Suns offense.

Auburn 4 Batavia 3 (12 inn.)

Three relievers combined for eight scoreless innings to make the comeback possible, with Andrew Cooper getting the win. Starter Nick Pivetta was touched for all three Muckdog runs on five hits and a walk while striking out two.

A four-run 2nd gave the G-Nats a 6-1 lead after two. They led 7-2 after five. The G-Cards rallied for three in the 8th, one in the 9th, but couldn’t tie as the G-Nats won again, 7-6. Michael Sylvestri got the win in relief with three scoreless innings. Starter Jefry Rodriguez gave up the G-Cards run on one hit and four walks over and inning and 2/3rds. Randy Encarnacion led the nine-hit offensive effort with a 2-for-4 game as the G-Nats drew two walks and stole five bases.

DSL Nationals 2 DSL Orioles2 1
• Yrizarri (W, 5-3) 5IP, 0H, 0R, 2BB, 5K
• Reynoso (H, 6) 2⅓ IP, 1H, 1R, 0ER, 0BB, 3K

• Ortiz 1-3, R, 2B, BB

The D-Nats had a no-hitter through seven but needed an outfield kill in the 9th to secure the 2-1 win. Geremias Gil doubled to lead off the 9th for the D-Orioles2 and tried to come in on the subsequent single but was gunned down by CF Darryl Florentino. All-Star closer Melvi Salazar finished out the 9th for his 13th save. Starter Deibi Yrizarri got the win with five no-hit innings, walking two and fanning five. Oliver Ortiz had the sole extra-base hit for the D-Nats, who were held to three hits and two walks.

  2. Who is this Hansen pitching against Hagerstown tonight? There is no Hansen on the Greensboro roster.

  3. I liked the tweet about Rizzo getting back Pineyro. I think it is a real possibility he will try. However, I don’t see how he can pull it off soon unless the PTBNL from Tampa is interesting enough to trade to Chicago.

    Speaking of which, do you think there is any chance that Rizzo ends up with even a marginal prospect from this bit of arbitrage he pulled off this week?

    • I sure hope so. Zuckerman’s line about day trading was awfully telling, IMO.

    • Per Jim Bowden, The Nats will not be sending a PTBNL to the Cubs, just cash, and we will be getting a 22 year old LHP from the Rays. So basically we just bought a pitching prospect.
