Syracuse 2 Columbus 1 (10 inn.)
• Ohlendorf 5⅓ IP, 4H, R, ER, 4BB, 11K
• Accardo (W, 2-0) 2IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Davis (SV, 7) 1IP, 0H, 0R, BB, K
• Rahl 1-4, R, HR, RBI
• Perez 1-4, R, BB, RBI
The bookends of the lineup were difference as Syracuse won its fifth straight, 2-1 in extra innings over Columbus. No. 9 batter Chris Rahl homered in the 8th to extend his hit streak to 16 games while leadoff man Eury Perez’s two-out double in the 10th knocked in the game-winner. Starter Ross Ohlendorf struck out 11 in five and a 1/3rd innings but walked four and gave up a run on four hits. Three Syracuse relievers combined to throw four and 2/3rds scoreless innings to enable the comeback win. Jeremy Accardo got his second win while Erik Davis notched his seventh save.
Reading 5 Harrisburg 1
• Treinen (L, 4-5) 6IP, 6H, 4R, 4ER, 3BB, 5K, HR, 3WP
• Barrett 1⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Leon 1-3, BB
• Bloxom 1-3, RBI
Four errors and four wild pitches didn’t doom the Senators… but they didn’t help, either as Harrisburg lost to Reading, 5-1. Starter Blake Treinen was errant three times towards the plate and once over to first as he was charged with four runs on six hits and three walks over six innings while taking his fifth loss. Offensively, Treinen went 1-for-2 with a double, the only Harrisburg extra-base hit as the Senators were held to six hits total. Before folks panic (again), Anthony Rendon had his wisdom teeth removed on Friday and is likely to be out until Monday at the earliest, per Geoff Morrow’s latest game notebook.
Potomac 3 Lynchburg 1
• Schwartz (W, 4-1) 8IP, 2H, R, ER, 0BB, 3K
• Selik (SV, 1) 1IP, 0H, 0R, BB, 0K
• Taylor 2-4, R, 2B, RBI
• Leonida 1-3, RBI, SF
Blake Schwartz was perfect for four innings and finished with just two hits given up over eight masterful innings as the P-Nats evened the series with the Hillcats with a 3-1 win. An infield single in the 5th broke up the perfect game while a leadoff triple in the 7th ruined the shutout as Schwartz walked none and struck out three for his fourth win. Cameron Selik pitched a scoreless 9th for his first save of the season. Michael Taylor singled and doubled, scored a run and drove in a run, but left the game with an injury after a groundout in the 8th.
Lexington 6 Hagerstown 0
• Anderson (L, 4-2) 4⅓ IP, 5H, 4R, 3ER, 4BB, 1K
• McKenzie 2⅔ IP, 3H, R, ER, 3BB, 5K, 4WP, 1-1 IR-S
• Renda 1-4
• Pleffner 2-2, 2BB
The worm turned in the Hub City as the Legends limited the Suns to just three hits in a 6-0 shutout. Dixon Anderson took the loss, his second, giving up four runs and five hits and four walks with just one strikeout. Chris McKenzie let in one inherited runner and was just as wild, walking three and misfiring four times for wild pitches. Shawn Pleffner reach base four times with two singles and two walks but the rest of the lineup went 1-for-25 with Tony Renda singling once and Estarlin Martinez walking twice. Roster moves: RHP Brian Rauh reassigned from Harrisburg; OF Wander Ramos placed on the 7-Day DL; RHP Pedro Encarnacion placed on the 3-Day Temporary Inactive list.
