Jeff Mandel gave away the lead on Friday and nearly the game on Saturday until Tug Hulett’s solo HR and Chris Marrero’s RBI single gave him the blown-save-win and the Chiefs an 8-7 victory. Tom Milone started and got the no-decision with four runs allowed on seven hits and a walk. He also struck out six.

Michael Aubrey paced the offense with a 3-for-4 night, including a double and an RBI.
The expected Yunesky Maya move has not officially occurred, but Collin Balester was optioned back from DC while Atahualpa Severino was activated from the DL

Hagerstown 8 Asheville 6 (Comp.)
• Hansen 5IP 5H 4R 4ER 0BB 6K 1HR
• Graham (W, 1-1) 2IP 3H 1R 1ER 1BB 1K
• Kelso 2-4, 2R, 2RBI
• Sanchez 3-5, R, 2RBI, SB
• Rogers 2-3, R
A four-run eighth, highlighted by Adrian Sacnhez’s two-out, two-RBI single, powered the Suns past the Tourists for an 8-6 win in the completion. Relievers Matt Swynenberg and Ben Graham both gave up a run over two innings with Graham getting the decision. Sanchez led Hagerstown’s offense with a 3-for-5 effort and a stolen base.
Hagerstown 2 Asheville 1
• Jordan (ND) 5IP 4H 1R 0ER 1BB 5K
• Eusebio 2IP 2H 0R 0BB 2K
• Sanchez 2-4, RBI
• Taylor 2-4, R
Michael Taylor scored the tying run in the 6th and singled to left in the 9th, an error erasing the RBI, but not the game-winning run as the Suns swept the de facto doubleheader with a 2-1 win. Taylor Jordan started and went the first five innings, allowing an unearned run on four hits and a walk while setting down five on strikes. Wilson Eusebio, Chris Manno, and Neil Holland combine four four scoreless innings of relief with Holland getting the win.

• Difo 1-2, 2R, 3BB
A six-run top of the 9th, highlighted by a bases-clearing triple by Bienvenido Valdez, catapulted the D-Nats past the D-Rangersfor an improbable 8-7 win.
Ivan Pineyro (19 y.o.) started the game and struck out six but was touched for three runs on three hits and two walks. Inocencio Heredia got the win with two scoreless innings in relief. Two of the 2010 IFA Signees — Diomedes Eusebio, 1-4 @ 3B; Dioncio Rosario, 0-4 @ CF — were spotted in the lineup.
