Rochester 6 Syracuse 3
• Tatusko (L, 5-7) 5IP, 5H, 6R, 6ER, 3BB, 4K
• Krol 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Perez 3-5, R
• Rahl 2-4, 2B
• Johnson 2-4, 2B
Rochester dropped a five-spot on a sloppy Syracuse in the 1st and cruised to a 6-3 win that ended any chance of a .500 finish. Starter Ryan Tatusko gave up all six Red Wings runs, walking three and giving up five hits for his seventh loss. The Chiefs racked up 13 hits but dropped the transmission with just a 1-for-11 mark in the clutch. Eury Perez led the hit column with three singles while Chris Rahl and and Josh Johnson both singled and doubled while going 2-for-4.
Roster moves: RHP Ryan Mattheus recalled to Washington; LHP Xavier Cedeno optioned to Syracuse.
Harrisburg 6 Altoona 3
• Treinen 4⅔ IP, 4H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, 6K, HR
• Grace (W, 6-2) ⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 0K, 1-0 IR-S
• Burns 4-5, 3R, 2B, 2SB
• Souza 4-5, 3RBI
• Goodwin 3-4, 2R, 2B, 3B, BB, RBI
Steve Souza Jr. continues to spark the Sens offense, delivering a two-run single in the 6th in a 6-3 win over the Curve. The 24-y.o. has gone 11-for-20 with seven RBI in five games since his activation, including 4-for-5 with 3RBI last night. Blake Treinen returned to the rotation and went four and 2/3rds, giving two runs on a 4th-inning HR and four hits total while walking none and whiffing six. Matt Grace got the win as the pitcher of record by retiring the final batter of the 6th as Harrisburg used five relievers to close out the game.
Roster moves: RHP Matt Swynenberg placed on the 3-Day Temporary Inactive List; RHP Blake Treinen activated from the 7-Day DL
Potomac — OFF DAY
Lynchburg didn’t cooperate last night, defeating Frederick 11-0 to keep Potomac’s magic number to clinch both halves at one. The P-Nats and the Dash play a de facto doubleheader tonight in Winston-Salem with a continuation of the July 11 contest that was suspended at 4-4 in the 4th. Winston-Salem has won eight in a row, but is on the verge of elimination from the playoffs thanks to a similar surge by Salem (five in a row) and spiral by Myrtle Beach (six in a row). The Red Sox’s magic number is down to three to win the second half and could clinch tonight with a doubleheader sweep and a Pelicans loss.
Lakewood 6 Hagerstown 5
• Encarnacion (L, 10-8) 6IP, 4H, 5R, 2ER, 2BB, K, HR
• Meza 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, K
• Ramos 2-4, 2R, HR, 2RBI, BB
• Pleffner 2-5, 2R, 2B, RBI
• Renda 2-5, R, 2B
Lakewood put up three in the 1st and two in the 4th to build a 5-0 lead. The single run scored in the 8th proved to be the difference as Hagerstown rallied from 5-0 and 6-2 down but fell short, 6-5. Pedro Encarnacion took the loss, giving up the first five runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks over six innings. The Nos. 2-4 batters — Tony Renda, Shawn Pleffner, “Help Me” Wander Ramos — combined for six hits, five runs, and three RBI but also committed three of the four errors on the night.
Roster moves: LHP Nick Lee, OF Narciso Mesa placed on the 7-Day DL (corresponding moves for additions of RHP Dakota Bacus, OF Isaac Ballou).
Batavia 9 Auburn 3
• Orlan (L, 1-5) 3IP, 7H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, 2K
• Bafidis 3IP, 2H, R, ER, BB, 2K
• Gunter 2-4, 3B, 2RBI
• Reistetter 1-4, R, HR, RBI, BB
• W. Rodriguez two OF assists (HP, 3B)
The Muckdogs scored in four straight innings to erase an early 1-0 Doubledays lead as Batavia tripled up Auburn, 9-3. R.C. Orlan lost for the fifth time, peppered for seven hits and two runs over three innings with no walks and two strikeouts. Auburn was held to just five hits with Matt Reistetter’s solo HR in the 1st and Cody Gunter’s two-run triple in the 5th accounting for the three Doubledays runs. Roster move: RHP Elliott Waterman reassigned from the GCL.
GCL Nationals — CNCLD
Rain spared the G-Marlins one last beating by the G-Nats or one last chance for pride, depending on your point of view.
Roster move: RHP Chris Young assigned from Syracuse for minor-league rehab.
