Syracuse 8 Toledo 3
• Jordan (W, 2-3) 7IP, 5H, 1R, 0ER, 0BB, 5K
• Meek 1⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, BB, K, 2-0 IR-S
• Lisson 2-3, R, 3RBI
• Hague 2-4, 2R, HR, 3RBI
• Keyes 2-4, 2-2B, RBI
Ricky Hague smacked a three-run HR to highlight a five-run 1st as the Chiefs won, 8-3 and secured back-to-back victories for the first since May 14-15. Taylor Jordan recovered from the astonishment of having a five-run lead to work with and went seven strong innings, with just an unearned run allowed on five hits, no walks, and five K’s. Hague and Kevin Keyes, both making their AAA debut, both went 2-for-4 as the Chiefs pounded out 10 hits total.
Roster moves: UT Ricky Hague, 1B-OF Kevin Keyes reassigned from Harrisburg.
Harrisburg — OFF DAY
While Trea Turner hasn’t been officially added to the Harrisburg roster yet, he’s in town and expected to debut tonight.
Roster moves: IF Cutter Dykstra, UT Jose Lozada reassigned from Syracuse; 2B Christopher Bostick promoted from Potomac.

Potomac stopped a two-game slide with a 6-4 win over Lynchburg. Reynaldo Lopez pitched into the 6th while winning his fourth game, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks. He struck out a season-high of eight. Manny Rodriguez allowed one of three inherited runners to score in the 8th but pitched a scoreless 9th to earn his second save.

Roster move: IF Adrian Sanchez reassigned from Harrisburg.
Lakewood 5 vs. Hagerstown — GAME ONE

• Napoli (L, 2-3) 2IP, 5H, 4R, 4ER, 2BB, 2K

Lakewood put up crooked numbers in both the 6th and 7th innings to turn a 1-1 tie into a 5-1 win in the opener. Matt Purke started and went five innings, allowing just one run on four hits and a walk while striking out three. David Napoli took the loss and the brunt of the Blue Claws offense, giving up four runs on five hits and two walks over two innings. Alec Keller and Grant DeBruin both went 2-for-3 to account for four of the eight Suns hits.
Lakewood vs. Hagerstown — GAME TWO

There was another 1-1 tie in Game Two, but the Suns got the better of the Blue Claws with a two in the 4th and one in the 5th, then held on for 4-3 win to split the doubleheader. Mario Sanchez got the win in a five-inning spot start, allowing both Lakewood runs on five hits, no walks, and three strikeouts. Grant DeBruin once again went 2-for-3 while Cody Dent delivered the two-run single that put Hagerstown up for good upon his
rental return from Harrisburg.
