Asheville 5 Hagerstown 4 (12 inn.)
• Giolito 7IP, 6H, 4R, 4ER, 0BB, 4K, 2HR
• Borne 4IP, 2H, 0R, BB, 3K
• VanVossen (L, 3-3) 1IP, 2H, R, ER, 0BB, 2K, HR
• Mesa 2-5, SB
The good news is that Lucas Giolito came in from Syracuse. The bad news is that he seems like he brought the Chiefs’ inability to hit in the clutch with him. Mix in three HRs and that’s a recipe for a disappointing 5-4 loss by Hagerstown to Asheville. Giolito gave up the four runs, three via the longball, on six hits and no walks over seven innings. He struck out four while throwing 97 pitches, 61 for strikes. Grant Borne followed with four shutout innings while Mick VanVossen served up the gamewinner on a leadoff HR to start the 12th to take the loss. The Suns collected nine hits, drew seven walks, and stole four bases but were a miserable 2-for-13 with RISP, including Matthew Page’s two-run HR in the 4th to cap off a three-run rally and Telmito’s RBI single in the 7th to tie the game.
Roster moves: RHP Lucas Giolito reassigned from Syracuse; RHP Pedro Avila placed on the 3-Day TIL; C Jorge Tillero placed on the 7-Day DL; C Adderling Ruiz activated from the 7-Day DL.
Auburn 3 Vermont 1
• Watson 5IP, 5H, R, ER, 0BB, 4K
• Cespedes (W, 1-0) 2IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 0K, HBP
• Perkins 1-4, R, 3B, 2RBI
• Banks 1-4, RBI
Auburn rallied for three in the 8th to break a four-game losing streak with a 3-1 win over Vermont. Blake Perkins’s two-run triple highlighted the outburst, which Nick Banks completed with an IF single to plate Perkins. Angher Cespedes got the win in relief with two scoreless innings, working around a hit batsman in the 8th and a single in the 9th. Tyler Watson got the start and gave up the Lake Monsters’ run on five hits and no walks over five innings. Roster moves: RHP Francys Peguero reassigned to the GCL Nationals; RHP Dane Dunning and LHP Hayden Howard promoted from the GCL Nationals.
