Syracuse 6 Lehigh Valley 5
• Rosenbaum 5⅔ IP, 8H, 4R, 4ER, BB, K
• Garcia (W, 1-0) 2IP, 2H, R, ER, 0BB, 3K, HR
• Mattheus (SV, 2) 1IP, 0H, 0R, BB, K
• Peterson 2-3, 2R, BB
• Perez 2-5, R, 3B

Syracuse weathered a four-run, six-hit 1st and came back for 6-5 win over Lehigh Valley. Danny Rosenbaum shook off the bad inning to retire 14 of the next 15 batters and finish the night with four runs on eight hits and a walk over five and 2/3rds innings pitched. Three walks and a wild pitch tied it for the Chiefs in the 7th while the gamewinner came on Emmannuel Burriss sac fly following a one-out triple by Eury Perez. Ryan Mattheus worked around a walk in the 9th to earn the save, his second for the season.

Altoona 5 Harrisburg 2
• Rivero (L, 0-3) 5IP, 4H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 5K
• Holland 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Bloxom 2-3, 2B, BB
• Taylor 2-4, 2B, BB, RBI, CS

A starting temperature of 32 degrees didn’t cool the Curve as they jumped out to a 2-0 lead after one and chugged to a 5-2 win in the series finale. Felipe Rivero lost for the third time in as many starts despite hanging a decent line of two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out five. The Sens couldn’t take advantage of six bases-on-ballsas they struggled to a 1-for-11 mark with RISP. Michael Taylor and Justin Bloxom both reached base three times with a walk, single, and a double.
Roster moves: OF Drew Vettleson placed on the 7-Day DL; OF Quincy Latimore assigned from Washington.

Potomac 7 Myrtle Beach 3 — GAME ONE
• Pena 2IP, 5H, 3R, 3ER, BB, 0K, HR
• Dupra (W, 2-0) 4IP, 2H, 0R, BB, 7K, BK
• Benincasa (SV, 4) 1⅔ IP, 2H, 0R, BB, K
• Norfork 2-4, BB, RBI, 2SB
• S. Perez 2-4, R, 2B, 2RBI

The P-Nats picked up where they left off on Tuesday night and took advantage of sloppy defense to score three unearned runs in the top of the 9th to put it away. Brian Dupra got the win in relief with four scoreless innings of relief, with just two hits and a walk surrendered while striking out seven. Robert Benincasa came on in the 8th and got the last five outs for his fourth save of the season.

Potomac 3 Myrtle Beach 1 — GAME TWO
• Mooneyham (W, 1-1) 5IP, 3H, R, ER, 3BB, 1K, WP, PO
• Mendez (SV, 2) 2IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Leonida 3-3, 2R, 2-2B, HR, RBI
• Oduber 2-4, RBI

Brett Mooneyham walked a season-low three batters over five innings while batterymate Cole Leonida racked up eight total bases as Potomac took the nightcap, 3-1. Mooneyham allowed the lone Myrtle Beach run on three hits while earning his first win at High-A. Leonida doubled twice and homered once to lead the P-Nats offense, which racked up nine hits in just seven innings. Gilberto Mendez closed out the game with two scoreless for his second save of the year.

Delmarva 1 Hagerstown 0 (15 inn.) — GAME ONE
• Giolito 5IP, 2H, 0R, 2BB, 6K
• Cooper 5IP, 2H, 0R, BB, 6K, HBP
• Thomas (L, 0-2) 2⅔ IP, 3H, R, ER, 3BB, K wit
• Yezzo 2-5, BB, CS

The two teams knew they were going to be playing 14 innings last night. Turns out it was 15 innings, but just one game as the Shorebirds won the battle of who could score first with a 1-0 walkoff win. Lucas Giolito and Hunter Harvey both put on a show, with Giolito allowing two hits and two walks over five innings. Jake Walsh, Andrew Cooper, and Justin Thomas combined for nine scoreless innings before Delmarva scored on a two-out rally of two singles sandwiched around of walk, with Thomas putting on the first two baserunners and L.J. Hollins giving up the game-winning hit to the sole batter he faced. Due to the length of the game, Game Two of the doubleheader was postponed. It will most likely be made up during the next series between the two teams, in Delmarva, on May 26-28.

  1. Theo Bowe seemed like logical choice
    To go to send with Vettleson down
    But Quincy signed
    Status of Bowe in XST. Rehabbing injury?

  3. What is up with Brian Goodwin? 16 K’s in 37 AB’s? .200 avg. Watching the Senators and he 0-2 again today with 2 K’s so far.

    • Goodwin’s OBP is fine, and he still has time to work on the strikeouts. It’s only two weeks into he season and it’s his first taste of triple-A.

      The Phillies’ top prospect Maikel Franco is a bat-first third baseman and he’s hitting .128 right now with a very low OBP in his first taste of triple-A. I don’t think that they’re worried yet. If Ithey don’t improve, then it’s time to worry.

  4. April has no humidity for balls to jump off bats
    Sweet spots
    Look @ Hagerstownsuns 13 runs
    Wooten had a double. Love the small ball suns
    . I bet difo and ward had their ears in span’s
    Teaching hearing range .
    Good to see Dixon Anderson in the mound
    again stArting. That makes one active Cal bear
    Out of three.
    No word on Bowe helping out soon in AA
    Or AAA??

    • No word on Bowe helping out soon in AA

      Occam’s Razor suggests he must be hurt, but it’s worth noting that more than a couple of players have gone to XST and never been heard from again.
