Buffalo 3 Syracuse 1
• Cole (L, 1-5) 5IP, 3H, 3R, 3ER, 4BB, 3K
• Fornataro 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Martinson 2-2, BB
• Johnson 2-4, R
Buffalo scored single runs in three of the first four innings as they took the series finale from Syracuse, 3-1. Starter and loser A.J. Cole gave up all three runs on three hits and four walks over five innings. He struck out three. Eric Fornataro and Rafael Martin shut down the Bisons with three combined scoreless innings, but the offense could only convert one run from seven hits and four walks. Jason Martinson led the attack with two singles and a walk.
Bowie 6 Harrisburg 2
• Spann (L, 2-2) 4⅔ IP, 9H, 6R, 6ER, 4BB, 4K
• Bates 3⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K, 1-0 IR-S
• Skole 1-4, 2B, RBI
• Corona 1-3, R, 2B
Bowie knifed Harrisburg twice for three runs in the first five innings and cruised to a 6-2 win. Matt Spann took the loss, giving up all six runs on nine hits and four walks over four and 2/3rds innings. Colin Bates stranded a runner in the 5th and turned in three more scoreless innings. A pair of errors in the 6th led to both Senators runs. Reegie Corona and Matt Skole both doubled in the inning, accounting for two of the four Harrisburg hits.
Frederick 3 Potomac 1
• Giolito 6IP, 5H, R, ER, 2BB, 6K, HR, WP
• M. Rodriguez (L, 1-2) ⅓ IP, 1H, 2R, 2ER, 3BB, 1K, WP
• Keller 2-4, 2B, RBI
• Norfork 1-3
Frederick rallied for two in the top of the 9th to break a 1-1 tie and Potomac had no answer the inning’s bottom half to fall, 3-1. Lucas Giolito allowed his first HR of 2015 — a solo shot with two out in the 1st — and five hits total over six innings. He walked two and struck out six. Manny Rodriguez retired just one of five batters faced in the 9th and was charged with aforementioned two runs after a wild pitch plated the go-ahead run and a bases-loaded bunt squeezed in the insurance run. The P-Nats mustered just four hits, with Alec Keller (2-for-4) the sole batter to reach base twice.
Savannah 10 Hagerstown 9
• Bach (L, 3-2) 3IP, 4H, 5R, 3ER, 6BB, 0K
• Marmolejos-Diaz 3-5, R, RBI
• Carey 2-3, R, 2BB
• Gardner 2-4, 2B, BB, 5RBI
Jeff Gardner’s bases-loaded double brought the Suns within one of the Gnats, but his decision to try for three cost them the chance to tie in a 10-9 loss. Hagerstown rallied for five in the bottom of the 9th, almost erasing a horrific nine-walk outing by three Suns pitchers. Connor Bach issued six free passes in three innings and took the loss as he let in five runs on four hits. “Orange” Marmolejos-Diaz led the hit column with a 3-for-5 night while Gardner totaled five RBI while going 2-for-4 with a walk.
Auburn 6 Vermont 2
• Fedde 3IP, 4H, 2R, 2ER, 3BB, 1K
• Boghosian (W, 2-0) 2IP, 0H, 0R, BB, K
• Robles 4-5, R, 3B, HR, 2RBI
• Lora 2-5, R, RBI
Auburn reversed the score from Wednesday night with a 6-2 win on Thursday night. Erick Fedde started but was ineffective as he was charged with two runs on four hits and three walks over three innings. Adam Boghosian, Tommy Peterson, and Ryan Brinley each turned in two scoreless with Boghosian earning a win and Peterson earning a save. Victor Robles went 4-for-5 with a triple and a homer to lead the Doubledays’ 12-hit, three-walk attack.
