Syracuse 3 Durham 2
• Poveda 6IP, 3H, 2R, 2ER, 2BB, 7K, HR
• Stange (W, 1-1) 1⅔ IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, K
• Gonzalez (SV, 1) 1⅓ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, K
• Rhymes 2-4, 2-2B, 2RBI
• Komatsu 2-3, R, SB, HBP

Syracuse finally surpassed the .500 mark (16-15) as they won their fourth straight with a 3-2 decision over Durham. Will “Don’t Call Me Buster” Rhymes’s two-run double in the last of the 7th was the game-winner, which also marked the Chiefs’ sixth win in ten one-run ballgames. Omar Poveda got the start, giving up both Bulls runs on three hits and two walks while fanning a season-high of seven. Daniel Stange got the win while Mike Gonzalez got the save (the first for both, respectively) as the two veteran relievers combined for three shutout innings. Erik Komatsu singled twice, scored once, and stole a base to lead the Syracuse attack.
Roster moves: RHP Blake Treinen recalled to Washington, RHP Ryan Mattheus optioned from Washington.

Harrisburg 5 Richmond 1
• Cole (W, 3-1) 6IP, 7H, 0R, 0BB, 7K; 1-2
• Grace 2IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Keyes 1-3, BB, RBI
• Skole 1-4, 2B, RBI

A.J. Cole spun six scoreless innings while the Harrisburg offense put up a four-spot in the bottom of the 5th to take a 5-1 win from Richmond. Cole scattered seven hits and struck out seven in his best outing of the season thus far, which earned him his third win and dropped his ERA to 2.86. Kevin Keyes and Brian Jeroloman both reached base twice with a single and a walk to pace the balanced attack of eight hits and four walks. Roster moves: LHP Felipe Rivero placed on the 7-Day DL; LHP Justin Thomas reassigned from Hagerstown. As noted by Byron Kerr via Twitter, this is likely a signal that LHP Sammy Solis is about to return from XST (back).

Potomac 4 Frederick 3
• Simms 6IP, 4H, 3R, 1ER, 0BB, 2K
• Martin 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Benincasa (W, 3-0) 1IP, 1H, 0R, BB, K
• Oduber 2-4, R, 2-2B, BB, RBI
• Tejeda 2-4, R, HR, 3RBI

A sloppy start, a fantastic finish Last Night In Woodbridge.

Hagerstown — OFF DAY
After a 4-2 homestand, the Suns take to the road on a three-game win streak to take on Hickory for four games over three days, with one of last week’s rainouts scheduled to be made up with a doubleheader tomorrow.

  1. Luke , great job as always especially with red inked
    Roster moves
    Perhaps Solis return means he is slid into rotation??
    Still awaiting Lee, Pedro E and Rauh to return
    To see who could be first bump up to Sens
    Rotation.
    Thoughts ?

  2. If Solis goes to Harrisburg, could that mean he’s replacing Purke? One can only hope!
