Buffalo 8 Syracuse 4
• Dupra 4⅓ IP, 5H, 3R, 3ER, BB, K, HR
• Jackson 1⅔ IP, 3H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, K, HR, 1-0 IR-S
• Solano 3-4, 2B, 2RBI
• Hood 2-4
Buffalo scored seven unanswered runs on the Syracuse bullpen as they doubled the Chiefs, 8-4 to split the two-game series. Spot starter Brian Dupra gave up three runs on five hits and a walk over four and a 1/3rd innings. Zach Jackson was able to strand one runner and preserve a 3-3 tie in the 5th but was lit up for two runs on three hits in the 6th to take the loss. Jhonatan Solano extended his modest six-game hit streak with a 3-for-4 game, hitting a double and driving in two while Destin Hood went 2-for-4 to account for five of the 10 Syracuse hits. Taylor Jordan was reportedly skipped due to a “little dead arm,” per Doug Harris via Syracuse.com’s Lindsay Kramer. Roster moves: RHP Brian Dupra reassigned from Harrisburg, LHP Mike Gonzalez placed on 3-Day TIL.

After 62 games, the Senators have finally strung together three straight wins with a 6-4 triumph over Erie. Harrisburg rallied from deficits of 3-0 and 4-3 with rallies of three, two, and one in the 6th, 7th, and 8th innings. Adrian Sanchez led the Sens hit parade with a 3-for-4 night, followed by Matt Skole at 2-for-5 and Jason Martinson at 1-for-3 with a walk; both Skole and Martinson drove in two. The win went to Neil Holland with three scoreless innings in relief, though he did let one of two inherited runners. Starter Omar Poveda was knocked out after four innings, touched for three runs on five hits, including his sixth HR surrendered at AA and ninth overall. Rafael Martin worked the 9th, putting two baserunners on with a walk and a single but keeping the Seawolves at bay for his 1st save.
Carolina 6 Potomac 4
• Bacus (L, 2-2) IP, H, R, ER, BB, K
• Mendez 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Severino 1-4, R, HR, RBI
• McQuillan 1-4, 2RBI
Carolina struck for three runs in the 1st and built a 6-1 lead after five, holding on for a 6-4 win over Potomac. Dakota Bacus was charged with the first four Mudcat runs, filleted for nine hits over four innings. He walked one and struck out two while dropping his won-loss record to 2-2. The P-Nats took advantage of two errors and four walks to score four times on just five hits, the last of which cleared the wall for Pedro Severino’s fourth home run. The loss, combined with a Lynchburg win, keeps Potomac’s magic number at four with six games left to play. The Hillcats are 2½ games behind but will finish the half on the road with one more tonight in Myrtle Beach and four over the weekend in Salem. The P-Nats return home for five against the Dash, including a scheduled doubleheader on Friday.

• Ramos (SV, 1) 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Difo 2-4, R, HR, RBI
• Ballou 2-4, R, 2B
Austin Voth retired the first 18 batters in a row before losing the perfecto and the no-no on consecutive batters in the 7th. He finished the frame. David Ramos picked up where Voth left off and retired the last six batters to combine on a one-hit shutout and a 2-0 Hagerstown win over Lakewood. Voth struck out six over his seven innings. Ramos fanned two in the 8th and 9th innings and earned his first save. Wilmer Difo and Isaac Ballou both went 2-for-4 with a run scored to lead the Suns offense, which was held to eight hits and one walk total. Hagerstown’s magic number is down to two, as Greensboro won its fifth straight but remains four games behind in the Sally League North.
