• Paul 2-4, R, 2B, HR, 3RBI
• Brown 2-4, 2R, HR, BB, 2RBI, SB, CS
The Chiefs remain red-hot, sinking the Clippers for their 7th straight win, 5-1. Yunesky Maya tossed his third straight quality start to his third win of the season, allowing just a run on seven hits and two walks. Corey Brown and Xavier Paul both homered and went 2-for-4, driving in all five Syracuse runs. The Chiefs pounded out 12 hits with five players collecting multiple hits and were 4-for-8 with RISP.
Harrisburg 4 Richmond 2
• Demny (ND) 6IP, 2H, 2R, ER, BB, 4K
• Frias (W, 1-2) 2IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Garcia (SV, 5) 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Perez 3-4, 2RBI, SB
• Pahuta 2-4, 3B, 2RBI
Tim Pahuta’s two-run triple in the top of the 8th was difference in a 4-2 Harrisburg win, the Sens’ fourth consecutive win. Paul Demny flirted with a no-no for five innings but wound up with a no-decision. He allowed just two hits and two runs (one earned) while walking once and striking out four. Eury Perez (3-for-4) and Pahuta (2-for-4) combined for all four Harrisburg RBIs, as the Sens collected seven hits total.
Frederick 4 Potomac 1 (5½ inn)

• Holland ⅔ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K, 1-0 IR-S
• Walters 2-2, BB, RBI
• Sanchez 1-3, R
Potomac was trailing 4-1 but had the tying run at the plate when actual lightning struck close to the Pfitz in the bottom of the sixth, ending the seven-inning game early and raining out the second game. Frederick struck with figurative lightning on the second pitch of the game to take a 1-0 lead off losing pitcher Ryan Demmin, who was touched for two more runs in the third. He would finish with three runs allowed on five hits over three innings. Zach Walters drove in the sole P-Nat run while going 2-for-2 with a walk to lead the Potomac offense.
