Norfolk 6 Syracuse 5 (11 inn.)
• Young 5⅓ IP, 6H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 4K
• Davis 2IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 2K
• Perez 3-6, R, 2B
• Kobernus 2-6, 2R, SB
• Rhymes 2-5, BB, 2RBI
After taking a two-run lead with single runs in the 6th and 7th, the Chiefs gave it back with a three-run 8th but tied the Tide with a two-out Will Rhymes RBI single in the 9th. Alas, Norfolk got to Mike Crotta (the seventh Syracuse pitcher) in the 11th for the deciding run, 6-5. Chris Young got the start and gave up just two runs on six hits and one walk (all season lows) with four strikeouts. Eury Perez scored the tying run with the second of his three singles, which led the Syracuse hit column. Jeff Kobernus and Micah Owings both scored two runs, with Kobernus swiping his 13th bag, which would lead any league without Billy Hamilton (17).
Binghamton 6 Harrisburg 1
• Clay (L, 3-1) 7IP, 6H, 4R, 4ER, BB, 2K, 2HR
• Lehman 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Rendon 2-4, BB, 2K
• Hood 2-4, 2B, 2K, OF assist at 2B
Harrisburg was one hit shy of Binghamton, but outhomered 3-0 and outscored 6-1. Caleb Clay took the loss, giving up six hits and four runs, three coming via two home runs allowed. He walked one and struck out two. Anthony Rendon both went 2-for-4 and struck out twice as the Senators were a woeful 1-for-14 with RISP and 11 runners left on. Pat McCoy gave up the third big fly and the final two B-Mets runs in the 8th. Pat Lehman, activated from the DL after Marcos Frias was struck by a line drive on Saturday night, pitched a scoreless 9th.
Potomac 3 Carolina 2
• Hill 7IP, 2H, R, ER, 2BB, 7K, HR
• Mirowski (BS, 2;W, 2-2) 2IP, 2H, 1R, 0ER, BB, 3K
• Burns 2-4, R, RBI, BB, SB
• Taylor 2-5, RBI
For the second time in less than a week, Billy Burns and Michael Taylor teamed up for the walk-steal-walkoff as Potomac edged Myrtle Beach, 3-2 to take the series 2-1 and close out the homestand 5-2. The steal was Burns’s Carolina League-leading 14th while Taylor’s single was his second of the game, but just the third P-Nat hit from scoring position as the P-Nats struggled to plate their nine hits and six walks, not to mention three Pelican errors. Taylor Hill gave up just two hits over seven innings, but one was a solo shot. He walked two and struck out seven. Richie Mirowski got the win with an unearned run over the last two frames, allowing two hits and a walk but setting down three on strikes.
Hagerstown 5 Augusta 4 — GAME ONE
• Turnbull (W, 2-0) 5IP, 7H, 4R, 4ER, BB, 3K, 2HR
• Hudgins (H, 2) 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Benincasa (SV, 5) 1IP, 0R, 2BB, 3K

• Schill 2-3, RBI
Brandon Miller doubled and scored twice, homered once, and drove in three runs as the Suns edged the Braves, 5-4 in what was to be the first of two in Rome, GA yesterday afternoon. Kylin Tunrbull got the win, but continues to give up the long hits, allowing seven total with five going for extra bases (two homers, two doubles, and a triple) as he gave up four runs and walked one with three strikeouts in his second start since being demoted from Potomac. Will Hudgins pitched a scoreless 6th for his second hold while Robert Benincasa walked two and struck out three in the 7th for his fifth save.
Hagerstown vs. Augusta — GAME TWO (PPD.)
The rains came back and postponed game two. They’ll try to get in two tonight, weather permitting.
