Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 5 Syracuse 0
• Lopez (L, 2-1) 6IP, 5H, 5R, 5ER, BB, 6K, 2HR
• Martin 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Taylor 2-4
• Bostick 1-3
The consternation continues as Reynaldo Lopez was taken deep twice, including a grand slam in his sixth and final inning as the RailRiders ran roughshod on the 22-y.o. en route to 5-0 win and a three-game sweep of the Chiefs. Lopez also coughed up a solo HR in the 2nd and five hits total. He walked one and struck out six while dropping his first AAA decision. Michael Taylor singled twice, Matt den Dekker and Chris Bostick once apiece to account for the four (4) Syracuse hits.
Trenton 7 Harrisburg 2
• Brady (L, 3-6) 6IP, 6H, 3R, 3ER, 2BB, 3K
• Bautista 1-4, R, HR, RBI
• Rickles 1-4, R, HR, RBI
Rafael Bautista and Nick Rickles both homered but the two solo shots weren’t enough as Trenton thundered for five runs in the final four innings for a 7-2 win over Harrisburg in the series finale. Michael Brady turned in a quality start with three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three but lost for the sixth time. The Senators managed just six hits total with no walks and were just 1-for-3 with RISP.
Potomac 6 Wilmington 2
• Williams (W, 3-3) 8IP, 7H, 2R, 1ER, 0BB, 4K, HBP
• Brinley (SV, 13) ⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 0K, 2-0 IR-S
• Keller 2-4, 2R, 2B
• Read 1-3, R, BB, RBI
The P-Nats completed the four-game sweep of the Blue Rocks with another 6-2 win. Austen Williams became the first Potomac pitcher to go eight innings, giving up both Wilmington runs on seven hits with no walks and four whiffs to even his won-loss record at 3-3. Neil Holland put on two while getting the first two outs of the 9th before Ryan Brinley came on to retire the first and only batter he faced to earn his 13th save at High-A. Alec Keller singled and doubled and scored twice while Raudy Read singled, walked, scored once, and drove in a run as the P-Nats scored six times on five hits, four walks, and two errors.
Lakewood 11 Hagerstown 6
• Baez 5IP, 7H, 5R, 2ER, 2BB, 2K, 3WP
• Borne (L, 3-1) 2+ IP, 1H, 3R, 0ER, BB, K
• Noll 2-4, 2R, 2B, 2RBI
• Lora 2-3, BB, 2RBI
Hagerstown came back from a 5-0 deficit to tie it at 6-6 but the bullpen collapsed in the 8th as Lakewood won 11-6 to split the four-game series. Joan Baez went the first five innings and allowed five runs on (two earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out three. The loss was charged Grant Borne, as his two runners left to Philip Walby came around to score in the bottom of the 8th. Edwin Lora walked once, singled twice, and drove in two as did Jake Noll to lead the Suns’ offense.
Auburn 4 Batavia 3
• Dunning (W, 1-1) 5IP, 3H, R, ER, 2BB, 5K
• Serrata (H, 1) 2IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• A. Martinez 2-3, R, BB
• Barrera 2-4, 2B, RBI
The Doubledays survived a late charge from the Muckdogs to win this one, 4-3. Dane Dunning got the win with five innings of one-run ball on three hits and two walks while setting down five on strikes. Brayan Serrata pitched two scoreless to earn the hold. The save was credited to Jonny Reid despite a Soriano-esque line of two runs on four hits (and a two-run HR) and a walk over the final two innings. Andres Martinez reached base three times with a pair of singles and a walk to lead Auburn’s ten-hit parade. Roster moves: OF Oliver Ortiz reassigned from the GCL.
