Syracuse 4 Lehigh Valley 1
• Jordan 2IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• McGregor (W, 5-5) 3IP, 5H, R, ER, 0BB, 0K
• Burriss 1-4, 3B, 2RBI
• den Dekker 1-3, R, 3B, 2RBI
The Chiefs rallied for four in the 2nd as they extended their win streak to eight with a 4-1 triumph over the IronPigs. Taylor Jordan got the start but was lifted after two scoreless innings (injury unlikely since he also struck out in the bottom of the 2nd). Scott McGregor got the win in relief, allowing one run on five hits over three innings without a walk or a whiff. Emmanuel Burriss and Matt den Dekker both had two-run triples in the Syracuse 2nd to pace the offense.
Roster move: RHP J.C. Gutierrez assigned from Washington.
Reading 11 Harrisburg 8
• Voth 5IP, 4H, 3R, 3ER, 4BB, 7K, HR
• Mendez (BS, 5; L, 6-4) 4BF, 4H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 0K, 0HR, 2-2 IR-S
• Ballou 4-4, 3R, BB, RBI
• Difo 4-5, 2RBI
• Pleffner 3-4, BB, RBI, SB
A six-run lead was too small for the Harrisburg bullpen to hold as they coughed up eight runs in the 7th to lose to Reading, 11-8. Austin Voth started and was knocked for three runs on four hits, including a two-run HR, over five innings. He struck out seven, but walked four. Wander Suero bore the brunt of the beating with five runs charged over an inning and a 1/3rd but the loss went to Gilberto Mendez, who let in two runners and three of his own while failing to retire a batter. Isaac Ballou reached base five times with four singles and a walk to lead the Sens’ 16-hit parade that saw seven of eight position players hit safely.
Potomac 8 Winston-Salem 5 — COMP.
• Mapes (W, 2-1) 4IP, 5H, 2R, 1ER, BB, 3K
• Orlan (H, 1) 2IP, 2H, 0R, BB, K
• Wright 2-3, 2R, 2-2B
• DeBruin 2-4, R, 2-2B, 3RBI
• Mesa 2-5, R, 2RBI, 2SB
A five-run 6th erased a 4-3 deficit as the P-Nats took the completion from the Dash, 8-5. Tyler Mapes picked up the win in relief of Matt Purke with two runs allowed over four innings on five hits and a walk. R.C. Orlan and Phillips Valdez combined for three scoreless to earn the hold and save, respectively. Grant DeBruin doubled twice and drove in three while going 2-for-4 to lead the Potomac attack.
Winston-Salem 1 Potomac 0 — GAME TWO
• Rauh (L, 2-1) 7IP, 5H, R, ER, BB, 9K
• Keller 1-3, 2B
• S. Perez 2-2, 2B
Brian Rauh pitched a complete-game loss as the P-Nats bats were stifled in the nightcap for a 1-0 loss. Rauh went the full seven, letting in a run on five hits and one walk while fanning nine. Potomac was held to four hits and two walks and hit into four double plays to offset three Winston-Salem errors.
Augusta 9 Hagerstown 1
• Fedde (L, 0-1) 4⅓ IP, 5H, 6R, 6ER, 2BB, 3K
• D. Williams 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Marmolejos-Diaz 2-4, 2B
• Carey 2-4
The Nats continued their tradition of promoting high-profile pitchers to start on the road and were “rewarded” for their caution as Erick Fedde was stung for six runs by the GreenJackets in a 9-1 loss. Fedde gave up five hits, walked two, and struck out three over four and a 1/3rd innings in his Low-A debut. D.K. Carey and “Orange” Marmolejos-Diaz both went 2-for-4 but the rest of the Suns were 2-for-28 as they were limited to six hits and a walk.
Roster moves: RHP Erick Fedde promoted from Auburn; RHP Kevin Perez placed on 7-Day DL.
Auburn vs. Connecticut — CNCLD
Rain washed out the finale between the Tigers and the Doubledays. It will not be made up because the two teams do not meet again in 2015.
Roster move: LHP David Ramos reassigned from GCL Nationals for MiLB rehab.
