The Mud Hens scratched out a run in the bottom of the 10th to take the game 2-1 and the series 3-1 from the Chiefs. Paolo Espino did his part as a starter, tossing seven innings of one-run ball with one walk and five hits allowed and six strikeouts.

Turnabout is fair play as the Senators drilled the Rock Cats bullpen for four runs in the 8th to take the series finale, 6-2. Matt Spann started and pitched into the 6th, giving up two runs (one earned) on two hits and five walks (one intentional) while striking out four over five and 2/3rds. James Simmons followed him, stranding three in the 6th and blanking New Britain for two innings to earn the win, his third. Matt Skole and Brian Goodwin both went 2-for-4, while Drew Vettleson’s Earl Weaver special (a three-run HR) highlighted Harrisburg’s rally in the 8th.
Roster moves: LHP Sammy Solis optioned from Washington; 2B Tony Renda traded to New York (A.L.)

• Mesa 2-4, 2RBI
Four-run rallies were de rigeur on Thursday with Potomac’s coming in the 6th at Five-County Stadium en route to a 6-3 win in the series finale vs. Carolina. Nick Pivetta, who was named to the Carolina League All-Star team yesterday along with Spencer Kieboom, tied for the team lead in wins with his 5th as he let in all three Mudcat runs over six innings on seven hits and five walks. Wander Suero, who also has five wins, notched his second save with three scoreless innings of relief. Christopher Bostick and John Wooten both homered as the P-Nats racked up a baker’s dozen of hits.
Roster move: RHP Kevin Perez transferred to Auburn; RHP Jake Johansen activated from 7-Day DL.
Hagerstown 7 Delmarva 4 (10 inn.)

All-Star Drew Van Orden finished the game with four scoreless innings of relief to get the win, No. 3 on the season. Alec Keller scored three times while going 2-for-4 while “Orange” Marmolejos-Diaz drove in three while going 2-for-5 as Hagerstown scored seven times on just six hits, “thanks” to four Delmarva errors.
