Rochester 5 Syracuse 2
• Rosenbaum 2⅔ IP, 3H, 2R, 2ER, 2BB, 1K, HR
• Garcia (L, 1-1) 2⅔ IP, 4H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 3K, WP, 1-0 IR-S
• Mattheus 2⅔ IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Peterson 3-4, RBI
• Souza 1-3, BB, CS

Rochester scored twice in the 5th to break a 2-2 tie and added some insurance in the 6th to earn a 5-2 win and split the series 2-2. Starter Danny Rosenbaum was lifted after 49 pitches and two outs in the third and was charged with two runs on three hits and two walks. Christian Garcia was the first man out of the ‘pen and gave up the final three Rochester runs on four hits over the next two and 2/3rds innings. Brock Peterson led the Syracuse hit parade with a 3-for-4 game while Brian Goodwin singled to extend his hit streak to 11 games. Syracuse.com reporter Donna Ditota did not address the injury in her game story but later tweeted that Rosenbaum’s injury was described to her as an elbow issue.

Altoona 10 Harrisburg 1
• Schwartz (L, 0-3) 5IP, 7H, 6R, 4ER, 2BB, 3K
• Perry 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Hood 2-4
• Bantz 1-3, BB

The Senators continue to dig themselves an early grave hole, allowing four first-inning runs en route to a 10-1 beatdown by the Curve. That brings the season total to 31 in 15 games, with just two (2) games without a run in the opening frame. Blake Schwartz lost for the third time in four starts, giving up six runs total over five innings on seven hits and two walks. Destin Hood went 2-for-4 but the rest of the lineup went 4-for-28 with 10K’s.

Potomac 4 Lynchburg 2
• Mooneyham 2⅔ IP, 1H, 2R, 2ER, 4BB, 1K
• Dupra (W, 3-0) 4⅓ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 6K, 3-1 IR-S

• S. Perez 2-3, 2R, 2B, HR, RBI
• Leonida 1-3, R, 2B, RBI

The P-Nats scored single runs in the 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th innings en route to their third straight win by a 4-2 count over the second-place Hillcats. Brett Mooneyham continues to flirt with disaster, tossing his fourth no-decision while walking four over two and 2/3rds innings to bring his season BB total in 18 in 14IP. Brian Dupra got the win with four and 1/3rd innings of long relief, letting in one inherited runner but allowing just two baserunners while striking out six. Stephen Perez went 2-for-3 with a double and a home run as four of Potomac’s six hits went for extra bases.

Augusta 4 Hagerstown 2
• Pivetta (L, 2-2) 4⅓ IP, 9H, 4R, 4ER, 2BB, 1K, WP
• Cooper 2⅔ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 2K, 2-0 IR-S
• E. Martinez 2-4
• Manuel 1-3, 2B

The GreenJackets stung the Suns for three in the 4th and one in the 5th as they took the series opener, 4-2. Nick Pivetta gave up all four Augusta runs on nine hits and two walks over four and 2/3rds innings to drop his won-loss record to 2-2. Isaac Ballou doubled with two outs in the 8th to break up the shutout while Drew Ward avoided the golden sombrero with a two-out RBI single. Estarlin Martinez was the sole Hagerstown batter with multiple hits. Wilmer Difo had his 11-game hit streak halted with an 0-for-4 night.

  1. So is Destin Hood finally learning to hit? This has to be a make or break year for him.

    • So far, so good. He’s off to a great start.

      • Right now he’s the only guy getting on base and hitting. The rest look pretty pathetic starting with Skole.

        Hood is hitting but no power generation. Its all OBP.

        • I don’t think Hood has turned into Nick Johnson the outfielder has he? Is this OBP sustainable? As an outfielder with his body type, there’s got to be some pop if he’s gonna get promoted. How do you develop pop at his stage of developmement? Zach Walters did it, right? How did Zach Walters do it?

          • Power generally comes late, but with Zach Walters, some of it was approach and some of it was having a bad hamate bone removed.

  2. Like the table setters last night in line- up
    Skipper Anderson
    Cat Ballou, WDifo and Wonderkid Ward
    Time to send Jordan to Syr and bring
    Up Laffey until Fister is healthy 100 pct
