Zach Walters led off the bottom of the 9th with a solo HR to give Syracuse a 3-2 walkoff win and take the series 3-1 vs. Indianapolis. The big fly also puts the 23-y.o. infielder on top of the I.L. leaderboard with 29 as he went 2-for-4 overall. Danny Espinosa (2-for-4) and Chris Marrero (1-for-3) also drove in runs for the Chiefs to pace the eight-hit attack. Mike Crotta got the win in relief, allowing a hit and a walk in the 9th while striking out two. Caleb Clay started but got yet another no-decision with both Indians runs given up on five hits and a walk while fanning three. Roster move: LHP Ian Krol optioned from Washington.

Ricky Hague’s 7th-inning HR was the difference as Harrisburg edged Richmond, 3-2 in the opener.

Tyler Herron got the win with a scoreless 8th and Aaron Barrett got the save with a scoreless 9th.

• Taylor 1-3, 2B, BB, RBI

The P-Nats scored six unanswered runs, including four in the 8th, to complete the sweep of the Blue Rocks, 6-2. The win was the 10th in a row for Potomac and the 79th of the year, matching the 2008 and 2009 teams, and one short of the franchise record set in 1982. Matt Purke turned in a quality start and allowed two runs on five hits, no walks, and struck out three. Greg Holt improved to 8-0 by pitching two scoreless frames. Cutter Dykstra extended his on-base streak 29 games with a walk while Caleb Ramsey led the hit column with a 2-for-4 game, scoring twice and driving in a run.

The Blue Claws rallied for the deciding run in the 8th and stranded two Suns in the 9th for a 3-2 win. Hagerstown starter Kylin Turnbull matched a rehabbing Roy Halladay for two runs over six innings but got the no-decision. The southpaw allowed six hits and two walks and struck out four. Derek Self retired the first four batters he faced but gave up back-to-back singles with one out. Bryan Harper couldn’t get the popup or groundball he needed, instead surrendering a sacrifice fly for the deciding run. Mike McQuillan led off the 9th with his third single and took second on a one-out single by Khayyan Norfork but watched a flyout behind him in center and a strikeout in front of him to end the game. Roster move: RHP Austin Voth promoted from Auburn.

The Muckdogs scored a pair of unearned runs in the 5th on a double error to erase an early Doubledays lead and held on to win this one, 2-1. Blake Treinen pitched four innings of one-hit ball in another rehab appearance before giving way to R.C. Orlan, who took the loss, but finished the game. Orlan gave up just three hits but hit a batter in the 5th and struck out four. Jean Carlos Valdez drove in the lone Auburn run while going 2-for-3 with a walk.

DSL Nationals vs. DSL Rojos — CNCLD
Rain washed out the final meeting between the D-Nat and D-Rojos and thus it will not be made up.
