Brian Rauh gave up the roug…er, run on a homer in the 5th and three hits total over seven innings for his second AA win. He walked one and struck out six. Reegie Corona was the beer man as the only Harrisburg starter not to march in the 18-hit parade, which was led by Adrian Sanchez and Brian Goodwin with three hits apiece.
