Syracuse 5 Rochester 1
• Hill (W, 7-1) 8IP, 3H, R, ER, BB, 2K,
• Delcarmen 1IP, 0H, 0R, BB, 0K
• Burriss 3-5, 3R, 2B
• Souza 3-5, R, 2RBI
• Walters 2-5, 2B, RBI, 3K

Taylor Hill “defended” his I.L. Pitcher of the Week title with eight strong innings as Syracuse beat Rochester, 5-1. Hill gave up one run on three hits and a walk while striking out two to earn his I.L.-leading seventh win. The Chiefs struck for three in the 1st and single runs in the 7th and 9th innings while posting a baker’s dozen in the hit column. Steve Souza and Emmanuel Burriss led the way with 3-for-5 marks, followed by Zach Walters and Will “Don’t Call Me Buster” Rhymes, who both went 2-for-5.

Erie 5 Harrisburg 1
• Poveda (L, 1-2) 6IP, 5H, 3R, 3ER, BB, 7K, 2HR
• Herron 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, K
• Taylor 3-3, 2B, BB
• Martinson 2-3, BB, SB

The longball continues to be Omar Poveda’s downfall. The 26-y.o. veteran gave up two big flies for three runs in the top of the 1st as Erie went on to defeat Harrisburg, 5-1, and take the series, 2-1. Poveda followed with five scoreless innings, giving up five hits total with one walk and seven K’s over six innings, but was charged with his second AA loss of the season. Brian Jeroloman’s solo HR in the 3rd accounted for the lone Senator run, while Michael Taylor (3-for-3, 2B) and Jason Martinson (2-for-3) registered the remaining five hits as the rest of the Harrisburg lineup went 0-for-22 with a walks (Matt Skole) and four strikeouts.

Potomac 14 Winston-Salem 4
• Spann (W, 4-0) 6IP, 4H, 0R, 3BB, K
• Self 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Oduber 4-6, R, 2B, 2RBI
• Tejeda 4-6, 4R, HR, 3RBI
• Leonida 2-5, 2B, BB, 2RBI

Potomac broke a three-game slide and returned to .500 (26-26) with a 14-4 victory over Winston-Salem. The P-Nats sent 15 men to the plate in the nine-run 2nd, ellipsed with four Dash errors. The 14 runs and 19 hits were both season highs for Potomac as every starter reached base at least twice, led by Randolph Oduber and Oscar Tejeda, who both went 4-for-6 and combined for five runs scored and five RBI. Matt Spann tossed six shutout innings for his team-best fourth win, giving up four hits and three walks while striking out one.
Roster move: RHP Paul Demny activated from XST — and a strong candidate to replace the tireless TBD as tonight’s starting pitcher.

Hagerstown vs. Kannapolis — PPD
Rain postponed the opening of the four-game series between the Suns and Intimidators. It will made up tonight with a doubleheader.

  1. If only Walters and Souza could play half as well in DC as they are in Syracuse, we might not be missing Zimmerman and Harper so badly.

  2. Brian Goodwin. 0-4. 4K’s. 61 on the year. .200 BA. Not good.

    Taylor is really impressing this season. Souza is a beast. Get Souza to the majors and give him enough at bats to get his mojo on.

  3. So, has Taylor Hill pitched himself into MLB prospect status?

    Would think that the if the Nats needed another starter from the minors, he (rather than Taylor Jordan or Olendorf) would be the most likely candidate. Hill is not on the Nats 40 man roster; so, a move would be required.

  4. This was a Law blurb on Giolito today:
    Giolito is skipping a few turns in the Hagerstown rotation after he reported a little soreness and the Nats (wisely) chose to give him a rest rather than push their best prospect
