• Lively 4IP, 3H, 0R, BB, 5K
• Burriss 2-4, 2B

The Bulls scored in each of the first two innings and it was more than enough as they gored the Chiefs for a 3-0 shutout and a three-game sweep. Sam Runion got the spot start and gave up the aforementioned runs in the aforementioned innings on three hits and two walks while striking out two. Mitch Lively turned in four scoreless innings of relief, but the Syracuse offense was stuck in neutral, going 1-for-10 in the clutch and stranding 11 baserunners. Emmanuel Burriss collected multiple hits for the fourth straight game with a single and a double and closed out the month of May with a .304/.385/.451 line in 26 games.
Roster moves: RHP Paolo Espino placed on the 3-Day TIL; RHP Sam Runion reassigned from Harrisburg.

The last Sunday in May was just like the first Sunday in May as Harrisburg blew a 4-1 lead to lose 6-4 on a walkoff grand slam. The implosion spoiled yet another strong outing by Joe Ross, who tossed seven innings of one-run ball with just three hits and no walks allowed while striking out eight. Hector Ambriz loaded the bases in the 9th before Brian Dupra was brought on. Dupra got two outs and let in one run before giving up the HR. Shawn Pleffner singled twice and doubled once to go 3-for-4 and lead the Sens offense.
Roster move: LHP Bryan Harper activated from the 7-Day DL.

Trea Turner Update
That wobble in the earth’s axis yesterday? It came from Trea Turner’s 23-game hit streak coming to an end with an 0-for-4 in a 3-1 Missions loss. Without a walk, a hit-by-pitch, or catcher’s interference, Turner’s on-base streak was also stopped at 29 games.
