Like Syracuse in the opener, Buffalo struck in the 1st and never trailed, taking the nightcap 3-2 to split the doubleheader.

Cole Kimball, Drew Storen, and Erik Davis each threw a scoreless inning of relief but the Chiefs offense struggled in the clutch with a 2-for-11 mark with RISP and left on 10 baserunners.

Joe Webb and Mike Boyden both earned their third hold as the bridge to Jake Walsh, who set ‘em down in order for his sixth save. Adderling Ruiz and Diomedes Eusebio both went 2-for-4 with a run scored as the G-Nats notched eight hits total.

  1. Pawtucket? Did the Chiefs move? ;-)

  2. Danny Rosenbaum was uncharacteristically wild, issuing five walks in three innings as he gave up all three Bison runs on two hits with just one strikeout while losing his ninth game.

    Not uncharacteristic for this season. Danny has 60 BBs now in almost twice as many innings. He’s essentially doubled his walk rate from last season.

    When I gave a cursory review of the state of the farm last week, I somehow overlooked Rosenbaum, who’s very clearly been a disappointment this year. It looked like he stood a good chance to be our 6th starter this season, but he’s regressed in just about every facet of his game.

    BB rate has nearly doubled, strikeout rate continues its annual decline (it’s dropped every single season since 2009), HR rate has increased to its worst mark yet. If there’s any consolation, it’s that he’s still keeping the ball on the ground. But for Rosenbaum to succeed as a pitcher, he needed to follow the Milone mold, of simply never walking anyone. Unfortunately, he’d doing just the opposite.
