The PawSox put up four (yes, a grand slam) against A.J. Cole in relief to break open a 2-1 game and cruised to 7-2 win to split the two-game series. Doug Fister made the rehab start and gave up two runs on seven hits over three and 2/3rds innings while striking out six. The Chiefs managed just six hits, with two apiece by Tony Gwynn Jr. and Jason Martinson, who connected for team-leading seventh HR with a solo shot in the 4th.
Roster move: RHP Manny Delcarmen released, RHP Doug Fister added to roster for MLB rehab.

Potomac rallied from a 4-1 deficit to take a 5-4 lead but had no answer for single runs in the 5th and 6th innings to drop the series finale, 6-5. Lucas Giolito gave up all six runs on 11 hits over six innings. He walked none and struck out eight while losing for the fourth time in six starts. John Wooten continues to swing a hot bat, connecting for two doubles, driving in two, and drawing a walk to reach base three times, as did Christopher Bostick, who went 3-for-5 with two runs scored.

The clutch eluded the Suns as they outhit the Grasshoppers 8-7 but lost the game, 4-1. Jefry Rodriguez failed to pitch five innings for the seventh time in eight starts, charged with all four Grasshopper runs on six hits and two walks over four innings. R.C. Orlan, Sam Johns, and David Napoli combined for four scoreless innings in relief. Carlos Lopez doubled twice to lead the Hagerstown hit column, but did not score as the team was just 1-for-12 with RISP and stranded nine baserunners total.
