Syracuse posted a picket fence in its first three turns at the plate but got whitewashed by Louisville for 10 runs in the middle innings and fell short of a comeback in a 10-7 loss. Omar Poveda reverted to form with five runs allowed on eight hits and one walk over three and a 1/3rd innings. He struck out two in his third loss in four starts and went 1-for-2 at the plate. Leadoff man Eury Perez went 4-for-5 with a double, two runs scored, and stole his seventh base to lead the Syracuse hit parade of 15, followed closely by Steve Souza and Jeff Howell, who both went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI. The 3-1 series win was the first-ever for the Chiefs against the Bats since Louisville Slugger Field opened in 2000. Roster move: LHP Mike Gonzalez activated from XST, filling the roster spot vacated yesterday.
Bowie 14 Harrisburg 2
• Cole (L, 2-1) 3⅔ IP, 10H, 3R, 3ER, BB, 2K

Kevin Keyes doubled once and struck out twice in his AA debut but couldn’t prevent the Harrisburg tailspin from extending to five games as the BaySox battered the Sens for a 14-2 win. Staff ace A.J. Cole gave up a leadoff single but kept Bowie from scoring in the first, the first starter to do so twice this season. The BaySox got to him for three runs on seven hits in the 2nd and chased him with two outs in the 4th after racking up 10 hits total. He walked one and struck out two and suffered the loss. The curse of the GBI lives as the Harrisburg relievers were ineffective, charged with eight runs and nine hits before manager Brian Daubach waved the white flag and sent Sean Nicol to mop up, though the 27-y.o. journeyman was swabbed for three runs on four hits including two home runs while getting the last two outs in Bowie’s seven-run 9th. Cutter Dykstra and Destin Hood both had two hits and an RBI to lead the Harrisburg offense. Roster moves: C Brian Jeroloman activated from XST, C Mitch Canham placed on 7-Day DL; 1B Kevin Keyes promoted from Potomac, OF Qunicy Latimore placed on 7-Day DL.
Potomac vs. Winston-Salem — PPD
Between the rain, a return trip to the Pfitz for Winston-Salem in June, and getaway day, the decision to postpone came early for the series finale between the Dash and P-Nats. It will be made up with a doubleheader on Friday the 13th, with everyone welcome except Mrs. Voorhees and her son Jason.

Drew Ward homered for the first time this season while Craig Manuel went deep for the third straight game this week as Hagerstown extended their win streak to four with a 7-5 win over West Virginia. Ward went 3-for-5 on the night, including a two-run single in the 9th that proved to the difference. Andrew Cooper couldn’t finish the game and gave up a run in the 9th, his second over three and a 1/3rd innings in relief. Jake Walsh got the last two outs by way of the K for his second save. Jake Johansen started but was jolted for three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings. Manuel also doubled while going 2-for-3 with a walk and had two RBI as the Suns racked up 11 hits total with four doubles and two walks.
