SYRACUSE CHIEFS — OFF DAY
It’s six straight games against the Bisons with a four-game series in Buffalo over the weekend and two in Syracuse early next week.
Harrisburg 3 Binghamton 2
• Pucetas (W, 7-4) 5IP, 3H, R, ER, BB, 3K
• McCoy (SV, 2) 1IP, 0H, 0R, BB, K
• Skelton 2-4, R, 2B
• Bloxom 2-4, R, 2B
Kevin Pucetas and a quartet of relievers combined to limit the Binghamton Mets to just five hits as the Harrisburg Senators broke a five-game losing streak with a 3-2 win in upstate New York. Pucetas went the first five innings with one run allowed on three hits and one walk with three strikeouts. Paul Demny, Marcos Frias, Hector Nelo, and Pat McCoy each threw an inning, combining for four innings, with one unearned run on two hits and three walks. Justin Bloxom and James Skelton both went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored to lead the Senators offense.
Salem 3 Potomac 3 — SUSP.
• Meyer 5IP, 6H, R, ER, 3BB, 3K

• Werth 2-3, R, 2B, BB
• Taylor 2-4, R, 2B
• Hague 2-4, R, RBI
Sorry, no LNIW for this one, which was suspended at 3-3 in bottom of the 9th after raining off-and-on for most of the evening. It will be completed tonight at 5:05 with the regularly scheduled contest at 7:05 p.m. Alex Meyer started and turned in five innings with one run allowed but also gave up six hits and three walks — all with two outs in the 4th. With a rehabbing Jayson Werth leading off and playing in CF, Potomac scored its three runs in the bottom of the first, with a double from Werth and singles from Michael Taylor, Ricky Hague, and Jason Martinson. Salem tied it in the 7th with three steals and a pair of singles, taking advantage of a hit batsmen and a passed ball.
Hagerstown 12 West Virginia 7
• Rauh (W, 1-1) 5IP, 8H, 5R, 4ER, 3BB, 3K

• Miller 3-5, 2RBI
• Ortega 3-5, 3R
• Skole 2-4, 2R, 2B, HR, BB, 4RBI
Hagerstown pounded out 17 hits en route to a 12-7 win over West Virginia, reclaiming a share of first place in the Sally League North. Brian Rauh got the “W” despite a subpar line of five runs on eight hits and three walks over five innings. Six Suns collected multiple hits, three notched three safeties, with Matt Skole leading the total-base count with six, thanks to a double and his league-leading 23rd home run, which increased his RBI tally to 80 (2nd in the Sally). Colin Bates got the cheapest save possible by the rules, retiring one batter in the 9th with with bases loaded and a five-run lead.
Auburn Doubledays 10 Staten Island Yankees 5

• Renda 3-6, R, 2-2B, SB(10)
• Kieboom 3-4, 2-2B, BB, 3RBI
• Rendon 1-2, R
Apparently, it’s a rule that all games in New York City must take nearly four hours, as the Auburn Doubledays outslugged the Staten Island Yankees, 10-5 in three hours and 45 minutes (plus a 15-minute rain delay). The lead changed hands five times before Auburn scored the last five runs in the 7th and 8th innings. Starter Pedro Encarnacion got the no-decision with three runs allowed on seven hits and three walks. Reliever Travis Henke earned the win with two and 1/3rd perfect innings, striking out three. Obligatory Anthony Rendon mention: Played third base and went 1-for-2 with a run scored but left game the half-inning afterbeing hit by a pitch near his left ankle (he was not taken out for a pinch-runner).
GCL Nationals 5 GCL Marlins 2
• Vasquez (W, 2-6) 5IP, 4H, 2R, 2ER, 3BB, 3K

• Piwinica-Worms 3-5, R, 2B, RBI
• Lippincott 2-5, 2-2B, 2RBI
• Jennings 2-4, R, BB, 2SB
The G-Nats posted a picket fence in the first three innings and snapped a two-game slide with a 5-2 win. Daury Vasquez got the start and the win with both Marlins runs allowed on four hits and three walks and three strikeouts. The G-Nats collected 11 hits total with Will Piwinica-Worms leading the hit column with a 3-for-5 game. Hayden Jennings, who shares a birthday with some kid named Bryce Harper, led off and went 2-for-4 with a walk, a run scored, and two stolen bases.
DSL Nationals 8 DSL Pirates2 3
• Valdez 4IP, 3H, 2R, 0ER, 3BB, 2K

• Bautista 3-5, R, RBI, SB
• Aguero 2-3, BB, RBI
• Marmolejos-Diaz 2-5, R, RBI
The D-Nats twice put up three-spots in the scorebook en route to an 8-3 win over the DSL Pirates2. Philips Valdez started and went the first four innings, giving up two unearned runs on three hits and three walks while setting down two on strikes. Jose Chavez got the win in relief with three scoreless innings, with four hits allowed and three strikeouts. Rafael Bautista paced the 12-hit attack with a 3-for-5 effort, scoring a run, driving in a run and stealing base #34.
