The sun don’t shine on the same dog’s [prosterior] every day, but don’t tell that to the PawSox, who dropped all seven games to the Chiefs in a home-and-home series. It was a 3-1 win for Syracuse with A.J. Cole giving up the lone run on a home run and three hits total over seven innings. He walked one and struck out six while notching his third win. Caleb Ramsey and Matt den Dekker both reached base three times and drove in a run as the Chiefs registered eight hits total on the afternoon.
Roster move: RHP Aaron Barrett option voided, placed on Washington 15-Day DL retroactive to August 6.

The Seawolves silenced the Senators bats, limiting the Harrisburg nine to just five hits as they lost the series finale, 5-0. Colin Bates took the loss despite allowing just one run on four hits and one walk over six and a 1/3rd innings. Erie broke open the game with a pair two-run rallies in the 7th and 8th innings to put the game away. Brian Goodwin singled twice and struck out once while Shawn Pleffner singled and walked but the rest of the lineup was just 2-for-22 with nine whiffs.

After slugfests on Friday and Saturday night, the series finale was pitcher’s duel that ended with some smallball as the Mudcats edged the P-Nats, 3-2.

He left with a 2-0 lead but Jake Walsh let in both inherited runners with a single to the first batter he faced. Rafael Bautista reached base three times and scored twice as Potomac was held to just five hits and three walks on offense.
