Louisville 5 Syracuse 1
• Meyers (L, 3-1) 5IP 8H 5R 5ER 1BB 2K 1HR
• Severino 2IP 1H 0R 1BB 1K
• Brown 2-4, R
• Antonelli 2-4
It’s nice that Brad Meyers hasn’t issued many walks, with #2 of ’11 coming last night, but he also gave up his third HR in five AAA starts, as the Louisville Bats sent the Syracuse Chiefs to their third straight loss by a 5-1 tally last night. Meyers gave up all five runs on eight hits and struck out two and took the loss. Just three Chiefs got hits, all going 2-for-4, and only two other runners reached base.
Harrisburg 4 New Hampshire 2
• Peacock (ND) 7+ IP 2H 1R 1ER 3BB 7K
• Zinicola (BS, 1; W, 1-0) 1IP 1H 0R 0BB 1K 1-1 IR-S
• Gilbert 2-4, RBI
• Rhinehart 1-3, R, 2B, BB
• Norris 1-3, RBI
Brad Peacock and the Harrisburg Senators continue to roll, with the former tossing seven strong innings and the latter taking its ninth straight with a 4-2 win. Zech Zinicola couldn’t strand the leadoff walk Peacock issued, allowing a single and two sacrifices, but Peacock’s effort lowered his ERA to 2.03 and his WHIP to 0.79. Archie Gilbert led the Sens hitters with two of the six Harrisburg hits.
Winston-Salem 4 Potomac 3
• Mock (ND) 6IP 4H 0R 2BB 6K
• Martin (H, 2) 2IP 1H 1R 0ER 1BB 3K
• Perez 2-4
• Souza 2-4, RBI
The Potomac Nationals bullpen snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in Winston-Salem, coughing up four runs in the last inning and 2/3rds for a 4-3 loss, their tenth straight. Garrett Mock allowed just four hits and two walks while striking six over six scoreless innings. Rafael Martin struck out three in the 7th and 8th innings, allowing an unearned run on Justin Bloxom’s 11th error in 21 games at third base and a wild pitch before Hector Nelo and Marcos Frias combined to give up three runs on three hits in the ninth. Eury Perez and Steve Souza both went 2-for-4 to lead the Potomac offense, which saw four baserunners caught stealing in six tries.
Hagerstown 3 Kannapolis 0
• Ray (W, 2-0) 5IP 1H 0R 4BB 3K
• Holland (H, 1) 2IP 2H 0R 0BB 2K
• Manno (S, 7) 2IP 0H 0R 3BB 5K
• Harper 2-3, 2R, 2B, BB, RBI, 3SB
• Kelso 2-3, R, 2B, HR, RBI
Three Suns pitchers combined on a three-hit, seven-walk, 10-K shutout of the Kannapolis Intimidators for a 3-0 win. Robbie Ray got his second win with five scoreless innings with one hit and four walks allowed. Neil Holland and Chris Manno followed with two innings each for the hold and save, respectively. Blake Kelso and Bryce Harper took their soap-opera first names and cleaned up together for four hits, all three Suns runs, two doubles and two RBI (one of each for both), a home run (Kelso) and three stolen bases (Harper).
DSL Cubs2 9 DSL Nationals 8

• Difo 2-4, R, 3B, BB, RBI, SB
• Ortega 2-5, SB, CS, E
• Rosario 2-5, 2R, 2K
IFA Felix Moscat got chased in the fourth, (no) thanks in part to four errors by defense and four walks of his own as the DSL Nationals fell to the DSL Cubs2 by a 9-8 tally. Wilmer Difo, “Fred” Ortega and Dioncio Rosario each had two hits as the D-Nats collected 10 overall and stole three bases in the loss.
