Columbus 5 Syracuse 4
• Tatusko 6IP, 2H, 1R, 0ER, 2BB, 3K
• Jackson (BS, 1) 1IP, 3H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 0K, 0HR
• Stange (L, 1-2) ⅔ IP, 2H, R, ER, BB, 0K
• Peterson 2-4, 2R, HR, RBI
• Solano 1-3, R, HR, BB, 2RBI

After coughing up a 4-3 lead in the top of the 9th, Columbus rallied for the gamewinner with two outs to take the game by 5-4 score and win the series, 3-1. Ryan Tatusko continues to pitch well but have little show for it in the win column as he posted his fifth quality start with one unearned run on two hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out three and lowered his ERA to 1.85. Jhonatan Solano (1-for-3, BB) and Brock Peterson (2-for-4) both homered to account for the first three Chiefs runs and three of the eight Syracuse hits.

Harrisburg 3 Akron 3 — SUSP.
• Purke 1IP, 2H, 3R, 3ER, 3BB, 2K
• Dupra 5IP, 4H, 0R, BB, 3K
• Jeroloman 2-3, R, HR, 2RBI
• Dykstra 1-3, RBI

Matt Purke suffered a setquack as the RubberDucks got to him for three in the 1st in a game that was tied 3-3 in the bottom of the 7th when severe weather halted play (H/T Geoff Morrow, Richie Mirowski). Senators reliever Brian Dupra held things in check for five innings while Brian Jeroloman homered to get two back in the 2nd. Cutter Dykstra’s RBI single in the 3rd plated Michael Taylor, who had led off with a walk and stolen 2nd with one out to tie it. The game will resume tonight at 5:05 p.m., followed by the regularly scheduled 9-inn. game.

Potomac 8 Frederick 4
• Pena 6IP, 6H, 4R, 2ER, 0BB, 8K
• Self (W, 1-0) 3IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• B. Miller 2-4, R, 2B, HR(10), BB, 3RBI
• Renda 2-4, R, 2B, BB
• Oduber 2-5, R, 2B, RBI

Potomac rallied for four in the 4th and three in the 9th as they doubled up Frederick, 8-4. Starter Ronald Pena struck out a season- and career-high of eight over six innings but got the no-decision as the Keys scored two unearned runs against him in the 6th to tie it at 4-4. He walked none and gave up six hits. Derek Self got the win with three shutout innings of relief, allowing just one hit, no walks, and whiffed three. Tony Renda picked up where he left off last month with a single, double, and a walk while Brandon Miller swatted his 10th big fly while driving in three to lead the P-Nats offense.

Hagerstown 2 Kannapolis 1 (11 inn.)
• Voth 6IP, 5H, 0R, BB, 7K
• Orlan 4IP, 2H, R, ER, BB, 7K
• Cooper (W, 4-0) 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Wooten 3-5, E
• Medina 2-3, R, BB, CS, E

It was another walkoff for the Suns as an Intimidators error sent in Drew Ward for a 2-1 win in 11 innings. Three Hagerstown pitchers combined for 15K on the night, with starter Austin Voth fanning seven in six shutout innings, R.C. Orlan striking out seven over four frames, and winning pitcher Andrew Cooper getting the 15th while working around a hit in the 11th. John Wooten went 3-for-5 for his fifth straight multi-hit game. Willie Medina also reached base three times with a pair of singles and a walk. The Suns tallied 10 hits total but hit into two double plays and were caught stealing twice to limit their RISP chances to just seven.

  1. Wow. Tatusko has to make it up to the Nats at some point this season. The idea of both pitchers from the Cristian Guzman trade making it to the big leagues for the Nats is just too cool not to happen. It was amazing the team got anything for Guzman, and a certainty that Tanner Roark already made the trade a win for DC. But both of them making it? Has to happen now.

  2. Voth can’t have much more to prove in Hagerstown now. Across two seasons and 45 IP with the Suns, he’s got a 2.23 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, 14:49 BB:K.

    Plus, it’s not like any of the Potomac rotation are blocking him, particularly Mooneyham, who has been looking pretty dire all season. A swap might be the best for both of them.

    While they’re at it, they might as well call up Giolito too.

    • Voth has been dominant. Right-handed hitter are batting .183 against him with 28Ks in 18 innings. Starting to think of young pitchers like running backs in the NFL, need to take advantage of those short periods when they are healthy and can throw max velocity. Agree that Voth and Giolito will be promoted aggressively.

  3. My dog napping on my lap
    Time for some mental games:
    Nats nation make your guesses:
    How many suns get promoted to
    Potomac by sept???
    Will Drew Ward join Keister kids
    Spawning a Gunther promotion to
    Suns??
    How many Potnats join Sanchez on
    City Isle by August ???
    Go, SS in deSSert!!

  4. Guzman deal gave Michael sainthood !
