Rochester 6 Syracuse 0
• Jordan (L, 4-5) 3⅔ IP, 7H, 6R, 6ER, BB, 0K, 2HR
• Billings 4⅓ IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 5K, 1-0 IR-S
• Skole 2-4, 2B
• Butler 1-3, 2B
A change in venue didn’t change the score as the RedWings shut out the Chiefs, 6-0. Again. Taylor Jordan was strafed for six runs in the 1st and left with two outs in the 4th, with one walk issued, seven hits allowed (including two HR), and no (zero, zip, zilch) strikeouts.
Bruce Billings finished the game with four and a 1/3rd scoreless innings. The offense, however, was still out to lunch with just six hits, no walks, and 13 whiffs on the night.
Roster moves: RHP Taylor Jordan activated from the 7-Day DL; IF Mario Lisson placed on the 7-Day DL
Erie 5 Harrisburg 4
• Voth (L, 5-7) 5IP, 7H, 5R, 5ER, 2BB, 4K, 2HR
• Suero 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Ballou 4-4, R, 2-2B, HR, RBI, SB
• Corona 3-5, R, 2B, RBI, SB, CS
Harrisburg had no answer for Erie’s three-run 5th and lost for the third straight time, 5-4. Austin Voth gave up all five runs on seven hits (including two HR) and two walks over five innings. He struck out four while losing his seventh game. Wander Suero and Gilberto Mendez did their part with three scoreless innings of relief combined. Like Donald Trump and tact, the clutch hit was seldom seen as the Sens were just 1-for-9 with RISP. Isaac Ballou led the charge with a single, two doubles, and a home run, as well as a stolen base.
Salem 5 Potomac 2
• A. Williams 6IP, 3H, R, ER, 4BB, 4K
• Johansen (L, 1-7) 2IP, 4H, 4R, 3ER, BB, 0K, HR
• S. Perez 2-4, RBI
• Keller 2-4, 2B
The Red Sox put up two-spots in the 7th and 8th innings to snap a 1-1 tie and beat Potomac, 5-2. Austen Williams turned in a quality start of one run on three hits and four walks over six innings while striking out four. Jake Johansen was knocked for the other four runs over the last two innings on four hits, including a home run. He walked one and struck out none while losing his seventh game. Stephen Perez and Alec Keller both went 2-for-4 as the P-Nats registered seven hits total.
Roster moves: OF-1B Tyler Moore, 2B Dan Uggla rehab assignments ended; 3B Drew Ward activated from 7-Day DL; IF-OF John Wooten placed on the 7-Day DL.
Hagerstown 3 Lakewood 1

• Napoli (H, 1) 2⅔ IP, 2H, 0R, BB, 4K
• Gardner 2-3, R, 2B
• Marmolejos-Diaz 2-4
The Suns scored three runs early and held off a late charge by the BlueClaws in a 3-1 win. Andrew Lee went the first five and let up just two hits and no walks while fanning five to win his third Low-A game. David Napoli got the hold with two and 2/3rds scoreless relief, walking one and setting down four on strikes. Jeff Gardner singled and doubled and scored a run to pace the Hagerstown offense.
Roster moves: RHP Drew Van Orden placed on the 7-Day DL; RHP Tommy Peterson reassigned from Auburn.
Auburn 3 State College 1
• Crownover (W, 1-4) 5IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 4K
• Torres (S, 3) 3IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Wiseman 1-4, 2B
• Franco 1-4, 2B, 2RBI, E(4)
Three Auburn pitchers combined on a one-hitter in a 3-1 victory over State College. Matthew Crownover was perfect through five to earn his first professional win. Luis Torres was perfect in the last three to record his third save. Adam Boghosian let in the lone, unearned run on one hit and one walk in the 6th. Anderson Franco doubled in two in the 1st inning and went 1-for-4 overall as the Doubledays collected six hits and one walk total.
Roster move: RHP Mick Van Vossen reassigned from GCL Nationals; No, I do not know why Victor Robles was lifted for a pinch-hitter in his second PA.
