Boston-area native Matt Antonelli went 2-for-4 with two runs scored as the Chiefs beat the PawSox, 3-1 in the nightcap of the sixth annual Futures at Fenway. Brad Meyers got win #5 with one run allowed over six innings, while Jeff Mandel pitched a scoreless 8th and 9th for his third save.

• Gilbert 1-3

Akron shut out Harrisburg on four hits to hand the Senators a 7-0 loss. Erik Arnesen took the loss with 10 hits giving up five runs on 10 hits and two walks in six-plus innings pitched. The loss cuts the Senators lead over Bowie to 1 game in the E.L. West.

Potomac 7 Winston-Salem 3 — GAME ONE

• Hood 2-4, R, 2B, RBI, SB

A pair of three-run rallies powered Potomac past the Dash for a 7-3 win in the first game. Sandy Leon doubled twice, scored two runs, and drove in three to pace the offense. Paul Demny gave up three unearned runs over five-plus innings to earn his team-leading ninth win.

Potomac 4 Winston-Salem 1 — GAME TWO

Potomac swept the doubleheader with a 4-1 win over Winston-Salem in the nightcap. Destin Hood homered and stole a base as the P-Nats got four runs on just four hits, taking advantage of six walks and an error by the Dash pitching and defense. Potomac now trails Frederick by four games, which beat Lynchburg to drop the Hillcats to six behind the P-Nats in the C.L. North.

Adrian Nieto led the Suns with a 2-for-3 night, but Hagerstown was held to six hits total. The loss drops Hagerstown back to two games behind in the Sally North and will need to win today to split the series.

The win was the Doubledays’ fourth straight, keeping pace with Williamsport for a one-game lead over the Crosscutters in the Pinckney Divison of the NYPL.

  1. Antonelli has had a nice year. Does anyone know how his fielding looks, and whether he could play a little OF (I assume he can play 2B and 3B). Curious how he would fit in a super sub role like Zobrist started in (I know he doesn’t have a Zobrist-ceiling)

    1. Antonelli’s played a little LF as well as 2B-SS-3B this year, but his glove is a little shaky overall (11E in 73GP). He’s had a good season, but is a ways down the pecking order for a callup, imo.

  2. I was at the Harrisburg game last night. Freakin’ sellout! It’s great to see Harrisburg supporting their Senators and enthused about the Eastern League championship. And, with the 2010 rennovations, they’ve created a great ballpark. A great night except for the 7-0 loss after losing 2-1 Friday of course — darn. Here’s hoping the Senators can win today.
