Lehigh Valley 3 Syracuse 2
• Tatusko 6IP, 3H, R, ER, 3BB, 4K

• Moore 2-4, R, HR, RBI
• Solano 1-3, R, 2B
The IronPigs rallied for two in the 7th against the Chiefs ‘pen for a 3-2 win to take the series 2-1. Tyler Robertson gave up a pair of singles then threw away a sacrifice bunt attempt to let up the tying run. After a strikeout and a runner cut down at the plate, Lehigh Valley got the go-ahead (and eventual winning run) on a two-out single off Mike Crotta. Starter Ryan Tatusko turned in a quality start with one run allowed on three hits and three walks over six innings. Tyler Moore homered while going 2-for-4 to lead the Chiefs offense.

• Nicol 1-3, BB
The box score listed the wind as 7 mph from LF to RF, but didn’t measure the breeze from 16 strikeouts by the Senators in a 4-1 loss to Portland. Harrisburg was no-hit for five and 2/3rds and mustered just three total (all singles), the lone run scoring on a walk, passed ball, a steal of third (do I have to say who?) and a wild pitch. A.J. Cole suffered his first AA defeat, charged with all four Sea Dogs runs on eight hits and a walk with seven K’s. Roster moves: OF Brian Goodwin activated from the 7-Day DL; OF-1B Jimmy Van Ostrand placed on the 7-Day DL.

Dominican struck out eight and walked two while posting a quality start of two runs (one earned) on five hits over six innings. Hagerstown trailed 2-1 before going triple-single-double to open the 6th inning and tie the game. A wild pitch and an RBI groundout plated the next two runs in three-run inning. Tony Renda, Mike McQuillan, and “Help Me” Wander Ramos each had two hits as the Suns notched 10 for the game. Roster move: LHP Jake Walsh reassigned from the GCL.

U-Dub Husky allowed a run on five hits and one walk. Cory Bafidis and Silvio Medina combined for three shutout innings of relief and four strikeouts to bring the team total to 15.

Jefry Rodriguez gave up both G-Mets runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four over three innings. Wander Suero got the win, his team-leading seventh, with five no-hit innings of relief. Randy Encarnacion was 3-for-3 with a run scored and a two-run HR that capped the G-Nats scoring in the 7th.
