Syracuse 5 Gwinnett 2
• Treinen (W, 7-1) 7IP, 6H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, K, HBP
• Martin (SV, 1) 1⅔ IP, 0H, 0R, BB, K
• Burriss 4-5, 2B, 2RBI,
• Leon 2-4, 2R
• Souza 1-2, R, BB, HR, RBI

Syracuse starter Blake Treinen played the role of stopper last night. His victory over the Gwinett Braves ended a three-game losing streak for the Chiefs with seven innings that showed he may yet contribute to the MLB club’s pennant race. Treinin only struck out one batter in a ruthlessly efficient outing in which he yielded only two runs in seven innings on a total of 76 pitches. A leadoff hit by pitch and sacrifice bunt by Gwinnett resulted in an eventual RBI single by Syrcause nemesis Jose “No Soy Jorge!” Constanza. Tyler Pastornicky’s double in the top of the 6th preceded a sacrifice fly by Brandon “Wish I Was Wade” Boggs that scored Elmer “Wish I Was Jose” Reyes, who had singled to start the inning. Syracuse’s offense supported Treinen with a “picket fence” of single runs in the second, third, and fourth highlighted by Steven “Phone” Souza’s 17th homer in the third, a solo shot. The offense generously scored just enough runs to allow Rafael “Not Tisha Campbell’s Husband” Martin to record his first save as a Syracuse Chief this season.
Roster move: LHP Zach Jackson released.

New Hampshire 9 Harrisburg 7 (12 inn.) — SUSP.
• Espino 6IP, 10H, 4R, 4ER, BB, 4K
• Herron 2IP, 1H, 0R, BB, K
• Vettleson 2-3, R
• Skole 3-6, 3-2B, 3RBI
• Keyes 2-6, R, HR, RBI

Rain suspended this one with one out in the bottom of the 12th with New Hampshire leading, 9-7. Harrisburg couldn’t hold leads of 2-0 and 5-4, but rallied to tie in the 9th to send it into extras. Matt Skole doubled three times and drove in three while Kevin Keyes homered again. The two teams will complete this next month when the Senators make their final road trip up 95 to Manchester (not by the sea) and Portland.
Roster moves: RHP Paolo Espino activated from 3-Day TIL, LHP Chris Manno released.

Potomac 6 Carolina 5 (11 inn.)
• Silvestre 6IP, 6H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 6K, 2HR
• Walsh (W, 3-0) 3IP, 2H, 0R, BB, K
• Tejeda 3-6, 2R, 2HR, 3RBI
• Severino 3-5, R
• J. Miller 2-4, R, 2B, BB, RBI

Tejeda homered twice to secure Potomac’s 13th walkoff win Last Night In Woodbridge
Roster move: RHP Gilberto Mendez placed on the 3-Day Temporary Inactive List.

Greenville 8 Hagerstown 4
• Mooneyham 4IP, 5H, 2R, 2ER, 5BB, 2K, 3WP, HBP
• Ullmann (L, 3-1) 2IP, 5H, 3R, 3ER, BB, K
• Yezzo 3-4, R
• Wooten 2-3, 2B, 2RBI, SF
• Dent 2-5, 2R, 2-3B, RBI

The Suns pitchers didn’t miss many bats as they gave up 13 hits and walked eight in an 8-4 loss to the Drive. Brett Mooneyham somehow managed to only give up two runs on five hits, five walks, a hit batsman, and three wild pitches and escaped the loss, which went to Ryan Ullmann. James Yezzo singled three times while Cody Dent tripled twice and scored twice to lead the Hagerstown hit parade.

Auburn 3 Jamestown 1
• Dickey 4IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Sanchez (W, 3-0) 3IP, 3H, R, ER, 0BB, 0K, HR
• Read 1-4, 2B, RBI
• Gunter 1-3, R, RBI

Auburn would take advantage of multiple miscues in the 5th to score three times and outduel Jamestown, 3-1. Robbie Dickey rebounded for a poor outing with four scoreless innings on two hits, with no walks and two strikeouts to his credit. The win went to Mario Sanchez, though he served up a solo shot in the 7th and three hits total over three innings with nary a walk or a whiff. Chase McDowell closed out the game with two perfect frames for the save. Raudy Read (double), Cody Gunter (single), and “Orange” Marmolejos-Diaz (sac fly) accounted for two of the three Doubleday hits and all three RBI.
Roster moves: RHP Manny Rodriguez reassigned from the GCL to Auburn for minor-league rehab from Hagerstown; IF Cutter Dykstra assigned from Harrisburg for minor-league rehab.

GCL Nationals — OFF DAY
With one month to go, the G-Nats are tied with the G-Mets, four games behind the G-Cards in the GCL East. After a 3-3 week, it’s three against the division (and league) cellar-dweller G-Marlins then three against the Mets, with home games on Tuesday and Friday.

DSL Nationals — OFF DAY
Like the G-Nats, the D-Nats are a shade over .500 with four weeks left but further back at 10 games off the pace for the division and six behind the Wild Card leader. Thanks to the reset afforded by the All-Star Break, it’s a trio of away-home games this week against the Mariners, Cardinals, and Orioles2.

  1. Thanks to Luke for doing the Harrisburg writeup. Thanks to Mother Nature for sparing nationalsprospects.com from a full writeup of an awful, awful loss by the Washington Generals, uh Bad News Bears, uh Harrisburg Senators. When I saw the score and had to take a personal call, I was like this is big trouble. When I saw the “Supsended” afterwards, I was a happy, happy man!

  2. I was looking at MiLB.com and they now have Austin Voth’s player page listed as being on Harrisburg. Has anyone else seen anything about another promotion for him? If they have bumped him up that would be a pretty aggressive move from a normally passive organization. He has obviously showed he could handle both A ball levels this year but Rizzo doesn’t tend to do something like this very often.

    • Believe Luke already wrote an article on Voth’s promotion. He’s a fan fave around here because he simply gets the job done like Tanner Roark does for the big club.

      • Yeah, Luke wrote it up on July 25th. Folks, any times you want to know something about a guy you like just type his name in the search box and any entry with his name will come up. Also “Transactions” is a great search if you want to figure out what’s going on with players. Took me awhile to get the hang of searching within blogs myself. Thanks for reminding me about this promotion, pdowdy. Schedule is tough but I’d love to make a “work trip” to generate “tutoring opportunities” for a “future employer” located in the vicinity of City Isle on a midweek night that Voth starts before the season ends. Guys that jump from Hagerstown to Harrisburg are pretty rare, and that means Rizzo has immense belief in his makeup and stuff probably.

  3. The new Woo Woo should be for John Wooten
    Who may or may not go to Potomac since his pop
    Is needed @ hags?

    • I’ll consult with Ric Flair to see if he will spend some of this time at Potomac games supporting John Wooten or consider hiring out a clone to yell his “WOOOOOO!” every time Wooten gets a knock or makes a stellar play. Age 23 and showing some pop says a promotion is warranted to me but I’d have to spend some time analyzing the Big Board to replicate the knowledge of other commenters. Usually it’s in other commenters and The rZo I trust when it comes to the promotions and transactions. I just report the games!

  4. Raudy Read is putting up impressive numbers in Auburn. IIRC, he was one of our biggest IFAs in recent years. So far, he seems to be living up to the hype.

  5. We would have more fan favorites like
    Voth if guys could just stay healthy and get good
    Reps
    Curious who would get call from auburn if
    Wooten left hags for Potomac
    Langlois again or Jeff Gardner??

  6. Brandon Miller is scheduled to report to Potomac today off rehab.

  7. Nats sign LHP Brandon Sisk off angel waivers z
    Will he stay off DL???? Lol

  8. interesting outing for Grace. for the first time he was used for one LH batter, typically he pitches multiple innings on 3 days rest. since he has always projected as a LOOGY I wonder if we will see him a lot more frequently and for 1-2 batters only to see how he responds?

    • You’re on to something, and I noticed that immediately when I saw that in the box score. This has got to be great news for him because it seems like they’re trying to flip him into an MLB LOOGY as opposed to not very likely to be used reliever insurance. Just get to The Show, record some LOOGY outs, and steadily increase your value ought to be the plan for Grace and his supporters.
