Tyler Mapes picked the wrong
week to quit sniffing glue team to match up against in a pitcher’s duel as the Yard Goats, team ERA 1.80, outdueled him and Sens, 2-1. Mapes shut out Hartford for four innings before allowing single runs in the 5th and 6th to turn in a third quality start in four outings, with five hits and a walk given up over six innings and two strikeouts. Wander Suero and Nick Lee both worked around a baserunner for a scoreless inning to keep things close. Brian Jeroloman, who took over for (most likely) Syracuse-bound Spencer Kieboom, singled, doubled, and drove in the one Harrisburg run. The Senators tallied just seven hits and one walk total.
Potomac 7 Myrtle Beach 4
• Fedde (W, 1-2) 6IP, 4H, 3R, 3ER, BB, 6K, 2WP
• Brinley (SV, 3) 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Stevenson 4-5, R, 2B, RBI, SB
• Ward 3-4, 2R, 2HR, 5RBI, E(1)
• Read 2-4, RBI, PB(5)
Drew Ward homered twice for the first time in his pro career while Erick Fedde turned in a quality start as Potomac won its sixth straight, 7-4 over Myrtle Beach. Ward also drove in a career-best five RBI and singled to finish with a 3-for-4 night. Fedde let in three on four hits and a walk over six innings while striking out six to win his first game of 2016. Andrew Stevenson led the P-Nats hit column with a 4-for-5 mark, scored a run, drove in a run, and stole his ninth base. Roster moves: IF Cody Dent, RHP Mick VanVossen reassigned from Hagerstown; UT Khayyan Norfork placed on 7-Day DL, retroactive to April 22.
Hagerstown 8 Asheville 7

• Guilbeau (H, 2) 1⅓ IP, 6H, 6R, 6ER, 0BB, 0K, HBP

The Suns blew a 7-1 lead in the bottom of the 8th but got one back in the 9th and held on for the 8-7 win. The implosion took away a win from Jefry Rodriguez who gave up a run on HR and three hits total over six innings. He walked one and struck out six. After retiring the leadoff man in the bottom of the 8th, Taylor Guilbeau hit a batter then gave up five straight hits before Mariano Rivera was called upon to hold the then 7-6 lead. Rivera gave up a double to the first batter he faced, then a sacrifice fly to the second to blow the save. In the top of the 9th, Victor Robles was hit by a pitch, stole second, took third on a wild pitch, and scored on Kelvin Gutierrez’s sac fly for the gamewinner. Rivera set the side down in order in the inning’s bottom half to earn the win Roster moves: IF Jeff Gardner reassigned from XST; LHP Connor Bach reassigned from Auburn.
