Roster moves: RHP Koda Glover promoted from Harrisburg..
Harrisburg – OFF DAY
Tyler Mapes’s nine-inning shutout was enough for him to earn the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week for June 13-19. He’s also tonight’s starter for the Senators against the Sea Dogs as they begin a six-game trip through Maine and New Hampshire.
Potomac – ALL-STAR BREAK
Tonight is the California-Carolina League All-Star game, held in Lake Elsinore, CA. At least two of the three position players (Drew Ward, Andrew Stevenson, and Alec Keller) are expected to start while Ryan Brinley may see an appearance in relief.
Hagerstown – ALL-STAR BREAK
Likewise, the Sally League will hold its midseason showcase in Lexington. Max “For Those About To” Schrock and Victor Robles are expected to start for the Sally North while Marian Rivera III and Jefry Rodriguez are among the pitchers. Kelvin Gutierrez will not appear because he is on the DL.
Auburn 7 Mahoning Valley 1
• Y. Ramirez (W, 1-0) 5IP, 3H, R, ER, 0BB, 5K, HR
• Valerio (H, 1) 3IP, 1H, 0R, BB, K
• La Bruna 2-3, R, BB
• Perkins 2-5, 2R, 2B
• Ripken 0-0, R, SF, 3BB, RBI
The Doubledays bounced back from Sunday’s beatdown to return the favor to the Scrappers, 7-1. Yonathan Ramirez went the first five innings and gave up a HR for the lone Mahoning Valley tally (hey, that rhymes!) and three hits total. He walked none and fanned five. Maximo Valerio followed with three scoreless innings to earn the hold. Angelo Le Bruna singled twice and walked once while Ryan Ripken walked three times and lofted a sac fly to pace the Auburn attack.
