Syracuse 10 Rochester 3 (Comp. Susp. Gm.)
• Maya 3IP, 3H, 1ER, 0BB, 2K, WP
• Tatusko (W, 1-0) 4IP, 6H, 2ER, BB, 4K, HR
• Gaudin 1IP, 2H, 0ER, 0BB, K
• Flores 3-4, R, 2B, 3RBI
• Antonelli 2-4, 2R, 2B, BB
Syracuse completed a 10-3 suspended victory over Rochester on Saturday. Maya pitched the first three innings on Friday night. Ryan Tatusko started the resumed game, pitching four innings for the win. He was touched for two runs in the 7th, his final inning of work. Chad Guadin added a scoreless frame as he continued his Syracuse rehabbing efforts. Every Syracuse regular had at least one hit. Syracuse did most of its damage during a six-run 3rd inning on Friday. After a Lombardozzi groundout, seven consecutive Chiefs reached base safely, including a bases-loaded walk to Jeff Frazier, an RBI single by Michael Aubrey, a two-run Jesus Flores double, and an RBI single from Seth Bynum. The tenth man to bat in the inning, Lombardozzi, completed the scoring with an RBI single and giving Syracuse an 8-1 lead that would hold up for an eventual 10-3 final score.
Rochester 6 Syracuse 2 (7 inn.)
• Meyers 6IP, 6H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 3K
• Wilkie (L, 0-2) ⅓ IP, 3H, 4R, 4ER, BB, 0K
• Lombardozzi 3-4, R
• J Valdez 1-3, RBI, BB
Rochester and Syracuse matched tallies in the first and third inning to give a 2-2 score before Rochester put the game out of reach with a four-run final seventh inning. Josh Wilkie was charged with all four runs after Atahualpa Severino allowed all three runners he inherited with one out to score. Steve Lombardozzi continued his torrid start (.458/.458/.541/1.000 in 24AB) in the International League with a three-hit night and a run scored. He led off the game with a single and later scored in the inning on a Jesus Valdez RBI single. In the third inning Chris Marrero (1-3, RBI), plated Tug Hulett on an RBI single.
Harrisburg 3 Altoona 1
• Arnesen (W, 4-1) 7IP, 8H, 1R, 0ER, 0BB, 9K
• Lehman (S, 1) 1IP, 0H, 0ER, 0BB, 2K
• T Moore 1-3, R, 2R HR, 2RBI
• Johnson 1-3, R
Tyler Moore’s fourth inning, two-run with two outs homer — scoring Josh Johnson — proved to be all the offense that Harrisburg would need in a 3-1 victory over the Altoona Curve. Erik Arnesen provided a dominant seven innings of nine-strikeout, one-walk pitching. The only run he allowed was on a two-out fielding error by Alex Valdez. Jimmy Barthmaier (H, 3) and Pat Lehman (S, 1) combined for two runs of scoreless relief.
Myrtle Beach 11 Potomac 3
• Demny (L, 4-7) 6IP, 12H, 6R, 2ER, BB, 3K
• Bronson 2IP, 6H, 5R, 5ER, BB, 0K
• Kobernus 2-4, 2R, HR, 2RBI
• Hood 1-4, 3B, RBI, 3K
The novelty of giving up big innings early still hasn’t worn off for the Potomac Nationals, who coughed up four runs in the first inning (all unearned, but they count on the scoreboard just the same) en route to an 11-3 loss to the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. Paul Demny surrendered 11 singles and a double over six innings, allowing six runs total, while issuing a walk and striking out three. Jeff Kobernus led the offense with a 2-for-4 night, scoring twice and driving in runs with both hits. Destin Hood struck out three times but also had an RBI triple.
Greensboro 5 Hagerstown 1
• Solis (L, 1-1) 7IP, 7H, 4R, 4ER, BB, 5K, WP, HBP
• Graham 1IP, 1H, 1R, 1ER, K, HR
• Taylor 2-3
• Sanchez 1-3, R, H, 2B
Hagerstown’s offense was hurt by the absence of Blake Kelso, mustering only one run in a 5-1 loss to Greensboro. Starter Sammy Solis was tagged for four runs in the first and third innings of his seven-inning start. In the first inning, a one-out double by Christian Yelich and a run-scoring wild pitch were the key at-bats in a two run inning. Greensboro had two singles and a double in a two-run third inning. A first-inning double by Adrian Sanchez and a Brett Newsome single led to Hagerstown’s only run.
Mahoning Valley 2 Auburn 0
• M Rodriguez 3IP, 0H, 0R, BB, 3K
• K Lopez (L, 0-1) 4IP, 4H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, 1K
• Jenkins 2IP, 1H, 0R, BB, K
• Batters: 4 singles, one BB, 11K, 0-3 RISP, 5 LOB
Auburn’s stellar pitching returned but the offense was AWOL as the Mahoning Valley shut out Auburn 2-0 on just four hits. 10th-round draft pick Manny Rodriguez got the start and went three scoreless innings, his longest appearance of the year as it appears he’s being eased into pitching more frequently, turning the ball over to Kelvin Lopez who was touched for both of the Scrappers’ runs over his four innings. For the offense, read that last bullet point.
GCL Nationals 4 GCL Mets 3
• Baez (ND) 6IP, 4H, 1R, 1ER, BB, K
• Medina (BS, 1; L, 0-1) 2IP, 5H, 3R, 3ER, 2BB, 3K
• Curran 2-5, SB
• E Martinez 2-4, R, BB, RBI
The shift from the NY-Penn League to the GCL was not what the doctor ordered as Silvio Medina blew the save in the 7th and lost the game in the eighth as the G-Nats fell 4-3 for their fourth straight loss. Gregory Baez got the start and went the first six innings, allowing one run on four hits and a walk but struck out just one. Chris Curran and Estarlin Martinez led the offense with two hits apiece, as the G-Nats managed to get just six runners into scoring position and left on seven for the game.
DSL Nationals 10 DSL Marlins 2
• Mendez (W, 2-0) 5IP, 6H, 0R, 2BB, 3K
• Vasquez 2IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Ruiz 3-5, R, 2B, 2RBI
• Mejia 2-3, R, 3B, 2BB, 3RBI
• Marmolejos-Diaz 2-3, 2R, 2B, BB, RBI
This one was over early as the DSL Nationals got five straight one-out RBI singles off two DSL Marlins in a five-run first as they cruised to 10-2 victory. Gilberto Mendez (18 y.o.) is emerging as the staff ace with his second win in five starts, tossing five scoreless innings to lower his ERA to 1.88 while allowing six hits and two walks. Adderling Ruiz led the 13-hit attack with a 3-for-5 game, including a double and two RBI.
