Syracuse 8 Charlotte 1
• Rosenbaum (W, 7-10) 6IP, 6H, R, ER, 3BB, 4K
• Krol 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Kobernus 2-3, R, 2-2B, 2BB, RBI, CS
• Brown 3-5, R, RBI
• Watts 2-4, 2-2B, 2RBI
Danny Rosenbaum snapped a three-game losing streak while Syracuse extended its win streak to five with an 8-1 decision over Charlotte. The 25-y.o. southpaw allowed one run on six hits and three walks while striking out four for his seventh win. He watched from the dugout as the offense exploded for seven runs over their last three “ups” and three relievers turned in a scoreless inning each. Jeff Kobernus reached base four times on two doubles and two walks as the Chiefs pounded out 13 hits for the second straight game.
Roster moves: LHP Xavier Cedeno, C Jhonatan Solano recalled to Washington; C Jeff Howell activated, reassigned from Harrisburg.
Erie 9 Harrisburg 5
• Hill 5+ IP, 6H, 5R, 4ER, BB, 5K, 2HR
• Grace (L, 5-2) 1IP, 4H, 4R, 4ER, 0BB, K, HBP
• Souza 2-4, R, 2SB
• Bloxom 2-4, R, HR, RBI
• Nicol 2-4, R
The offense got the boost it’s been missing with the return of Steve Souza Jr., but the pitchers couldn’t stand the prosperity of a 5-1 lead. Erie rallied for four in the 6th to tie, then four more in the 9th to win it, 9-5. Starter Taylor Hill was roughed up for five runs (four earned) on six hits and a walk in five-plus innings, letting the first six batters reach base in the 6th, and leaving with the bases loaded and a 5-4 lead. Tyler Herron couldn’t strand all three for the blown save. Souza, Justin Bloxom, and Sean Nicol each went 2-for-4 as the Senators notched nine hits total, though just one after the game was tied. Matt Grace took the loss, giving up the second four-spot on four hits in the 9th. Roster moves: OF Steven Souza Jr. activated from the 7-Day DL; IF Jose Lozada placed on the 7-day DL.
Winston-Salem 3 Potomac 2 (11 inn.)
• Solis 5IP, 6H, R, ER, 2BB, 3K
• Holt 2IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, K
• Ramsey 3-5, OF assists at 1B, 3B, E
• Sanchez 2-5, R
Potomac remains flat as they were swept at the Pfitz for the first time this season with a 3-2 loss to Winston-Salem in 11 innings. Sammy Solis got the start and went five innings, giving up a run on six hits and two walks while striking out three. He was in line for the win thanks in large part to the Dash defense giving away two in the 2nd on a passed ball and double steal attempt that saw the run score before the third out was made. The P-Nats returned the favor with an unearned run in the 8th, “thanks” to a passed ball with one out that moved up two runners into scoring position and a dropped flyball that sent in the equalizer. The Dash won it in the 11th with single and a double with one out off Brian Dupra, the fourth Potomac reliever of the night. Caleb Ramsey led the offense with a 3-for-5 game and cut down two runners but committed the critical error in the 8th.
Greensboro 9 Hagerstown 1
• Johansen (L, 0-1) 4⅔ IP, 6H, 5R, 4ER, 2BB, 3K, HR
• Self 1⅔ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 0K, 1-0 IR-S
• McQuillan 2-3, BB
• Ramos 2-4, RBI
Jake Johansen became the latest promoted pitcher to learn there’s a difference between the levels as Greensboro schooled him for five runs in a 9-1 win over Hagerstown. The Nats’ top draft pick went four and 2/3rds innings, walked two, struck out three, but gave up six hits including a two-run shot in the 4th. The Grasshoppers scored in three of the five innings he began. Offensively, the Suns were held to five hits, with two singles apiece coming off the bats of Mike McQuillan and “Help Me” Wander Ramos and a double from Will Piwinica-Worms. Roster move: RHP Dakota Bacus assigned from Washington.
State College 9 Auburn 3
• Simms (L, 0-2) 3⅔ IP, 6H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, K
• Napoli 1IP, 0H, 0R, BB, K
• Lippincott 2-4, R, HR, 3RBI
• Foat 1-3, BB
State College scored in five consecutive innings, building a 6-0 lead before Auburn answered and pranced to a 9-3 win. John Simms lost his first career start, giving up two runs on six hits, walking none, setting down one on strikes. Silvio Medina became the latest victim of the GBI curse, letting in two inherited runners and four of his own over two and a 1/3rd innings. Bryan Lippincott drove in all three Doubleday runs, breaking up the shutout with solo home run in the 7th and plating two in the 8th with a single.
GCL Mets 4 GCL Nationals 3
• Reyes (L, 0-1) 4IP, 4H, 3R, 3ER, 2BB, K, HR
• Waterman 3IP, 2H, R, ER, 2BB, K
• Mejia 2-4, R
• Gordon 1-3, R, OF assist at 3B
The G-Nats latest win streak came to an end with a soul-crushing 4-3 loss to the G-Mets. DSL callup Luis Reyes made his first stateside start but was roughed up for three runs on four hits, including a two-run homer in the 4th. The 18-y.o. Venezuelan walked two and struck out one. The G-Nats rallied for two in the 9th and had the tying run at second with one out, but couldn’t push across the equalizer as Hayden Jennings whiffed and Rafael Bautista tapped back to the mound. Bryan Mejia led the G-Nats offense with a 2-for-4 game, including a 9th-inning single and run.
DSL Cardinals 5 DSL Nationals 2
• Sanchez (L, 2-3) 6IP, 6H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 6K
• Pena 2IP, 4H, 3R, 3ER, BB, K, HR
• Alvarez 3-4, RBI
• Corredor 1-3, R, 2B, BB, RBI
The D-Cards erupted for three in the 7th to break open a 2-1 game and went on to defeat the D-Nats 5-2. Starter Mario Sanchez turned in a quality start of two runs allowed on six hits and a walk with six K’s, but took his third loss. The offense was limited to four hits by two players: leadoff man Aldrem Corredor, who went 1-for-3 with a double and an RBI, and no. 2 batter Thomas Alvarez, who went 3-for-4 with an RBI.
