Milone allowed just three hits over seven innings with no walks and nine strikeouts to even his record at 3-3. Carr and Mandel each threw an inning to notch the hold and save respectively. Corey Brown and Jhonatan Solano both went 2-for-4 to lead the Syracuse offense.

• Johnson 2-5, 3R, BB, HR, RBI
• Gilbert 2-5, 2R, RBI
• Ivany 2-4, R, HR, 2RBI
Brad Peacock struck out 10 over six innings for his sixth win as Harrisburg returned to .500 with a 7-2 win in Binghamton. Offensively, the Senators put runners on base in eight of nine innings, getting 11 hits and drawing six walks. The veteran trio of Josh Johnson, Archie Gilbert, and Devin Ivany went 6-for-14 with two HRs and four RBI, scoring six of the seven Harrisburg runs.

• Kobernus 3-5, 2R, 3B, 2SB
• Hood 3-4, R, 2B, 3RBI
• Souza 2-4, 3R, 2B, HR, 3RBI
The P-Nats have taken the “s” out of their offensive slumber, battering the Lynchburg moundsmen for 16 hits in a 13-8 romp, their fourth straight win. Designated
driver hitter Cutter Dykstra was the misnomer as the only batter not to join the party, as six Potomac hitters had multiple hits with Jeff Kobernus and Destin Hood leading the way with three apiece. Starter Trevor Holder got the win despite allowing five runs on seven hits over five and 1/3rd innings, but once again did not walk a batter and struck out six. Justino Cuevas has joined the team from XST, with Francisco Soriano placed on the DL to make room.
Greensboro 9 Hagerstown 6
• Hansen (ND) 6IP 5H 2R 2ER 2BB 6K
• Brown 1⅔ 5H 4R 4ER 0BB 2K

• Kelso 2-5, 2RBI
• Freitas 2-5, R, HR, 2RBI
• Rogers 1-2, 2R, 2BB, SB
The offense did its part, scoring six runs, with Blake Kelso and David Freitas each going 2-for-5. Starter Bobby Hansen had a quality start with two runs allowed on five hits and two walks over six innings. The bullpen, however, melted down for the second straight game, allowing seven runs in the bottom of the seventh, lowlighted by a two-out, three-run home run that proved to the difference as Greensboro defeated Hagerstown, 9-6.
As mentioned in comments, Kevin Keyes has joined the team from XST, with Randolph Oduber placed on the 7-Day DL. MiLB.com also saw fit to finally confirm our commenters’ observation that Chris McKenzie and Chad Jenkins have been removed from the roster to make room for A.J. Cole and Robbie Ray. No word on whether or not that was posted after 6 p.m. last night.
