Buffalo 8 Syracuse 2
• Ross (L, 0-1) 4⅔ IP, 7H, 3R, 3ER, BB, 4K
• Runion 1⅓ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Martinson 2-4, 2B
• Goodwin 2-5, R, OF assist at 3B
The Chiefs gave up five unearned late and were unable to cash in on numerous chances as they fell again to the Bison, 8-2. Joe Ross made a rehab start and was charged with three runs on seven hits and a walk over four and 2/3rds innings. He struck out four but took the loss. Down 3-2 in the 7th, an error and a passed ball led to three runs, then another error to start the 8th added two more. Meanwhile, Syracuse collected 11 hits (10 singles; Jason Martinson doubled) and went 0-for-11 with RISP with nine LOB. Roster moves: RHP Joe Ross assigned for MLB rehab.
• Mapes (L, 10-7) 6IP, 5H, 3R, 0ER, BB, 2K, HR; 1-1, BB
• Self 2IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Keyes 1-4, R, HR, RBI
• Keyes 2-3, R, 2B, BB, RBI
Same story in the Manchester, NH, where Hartford is playing this weekend because its stadium is both unfinished and uninsured as the Goats went yard after a two-out error in the 1st to score three unearned runs that stood up for a 3-2 win. Tyler Mapes and Derek Self combined for seven scoreless innings afterwards, allowing just four hits and a walk. Mapes lost for the seventh time despite getting on base twice himself (single, walk). Kevin Keyes homered for the third straight game and Andrew Stevenson went deep for the third time in 2016 to account for the two Senators runs.
Carolina 3 Potomac 1
• Fedde (L, 5-4) 6⅔ IP, 6H, 2R, 0ER, BB, 9K
• Orlan 1IP, 0H, 0R, IBB, 0K
• Vettleson 1-3, 2B, BB, RBI
• Carey 1-3, 2B
Erick Fedde turned in yet another strong outing (0.71 ERA, 0.99 WHIP in his last 10GS) but lost as the Mudcats’ Eric Clark outdueled him in a 3-1 victory over the P-Nats. Fedde struck out nine and pitched into the seventh for the second time this season as he gave up two unearned runs on six hits but suffered the loss. The Potomac bats were held to just four hits, with Drew Vettleson the sole batter to reach base twice with an RBI double and a walk.
Hickory 5 Hagerstown 3 – COMP.
• Borque 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• VanVossen 4IP, 3H, R, ER, BB, 2K
• Rivera (L, 3-1) 3IP, 5H, 4R, 3ER, 2BB, 2K, HR
• Encarnacion 1-4, R, BB
• Lora 1-4, R, 2SB
Thanks to the rainout, any momentum Hagerstown had was, um, washed away as Hickory scored five unanswered runs to take the completion, 5-3. Mick VanVossen took over from James Bourque and pitched four innings of one-run ball on three hits and a walk. Mariano Rivera III was pinched for runs in each of his three innings of work, giving up four total on five hits and two walks to lose for the first time in ’16. Randy Encarnacio was the sole batter to reach base twice, going 1-for-4 with a walk as the Crawdads relievers held the Suns to two hits over seven scoreless innings.
Hagerstown 6 Hickory 2 – COMP. (10 inn.)
• Guilbeau 5IP, 7H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, 4K, HR, WP
• Walby 3IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 4K
• Johansen (W, 1-0) 2IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Encarnacion 1-3, 2R, 2BB
• Gutierrez 2-5, R, 2RBI, CS
• Ruiz 1-4, 2B, BB, 3RBI
The Suns exploded for four runs in the 10th – in a game that was supposed to go just seven innings – to split the de facto doubleheader with a 6-2 win. Jake Johansen got the win in relief as he combined with Philip Walby for five scoreless inningss of relief. Taylor Guilbeau started and went the first five frames, allowing both Crawdads runs on seven hits while walking none and striking out four. Randy Encarnacion reached base three times and scored twice while Kelvin Rodriguez drove in two and Adderling Ruiz plated three with a double in the 10th.
Auburn 3 West Virginia 2
• Ramirez 5IP, 5H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 3K
• Held (W, 1-0) 2IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Perkins 1-3, R, BB
• Sundberg 2-4
Jack Sundberg’s second single of the night drove in the gamewinner as Auburn took the series finale from West Virginia, 3-2. Yonathan Ramirez gave up both Black Bears runs on five hits and a walk while fanning three for another no-decision. Brayan Serrata (1IP), Phil Morse (1IP), and Samuel Held (2IP) combined for four scoreless innings of relief with Held getting the “W.” Sundberg went 2-for-4 to lead the Doubleday hit column while Sheldon Neuse and Blake Perkins both reached base twice to lead the eight-hit, two-walk offense. Roster moves: RHP Matt Pirro promoted, RHP Nick Conner demoted from the GCL.
Mat Latos came out of storage to throw three scoreless innings in Saturday’s 5-0 win vs. the G-Astros to G-even out the G-week at 3-3. The G-Nats continue to lead the GCL East by a game over the G-Cards.
The D-Nats continue to play out the string, winning three of six games last week, but remain eight games below .500 and 14 games behind in the San Pedro Division. This week, they play the D-Yankees2, the D-Tigers, and D-Cards.
