Starter Danny Rosenbuam went the first six, allowing a run on five hits and two walks while striking out eight, a season high for the 25-y.o. southpaw.

Starter Rob Gilliam took the loss, giving up four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four. Paul Demny’s return to the mound was marred by three runs on three hits and a walk in the course of 2/3rds of an innings (five batters faced).

• Taylor 1-3, R, 2B, 2BB
• Nieto 1-3, BB, RBI
Make that a season-long skid of four in a row as Salem downed Potomac, 5-1. Making his second start since his second dropdown to High-A, Marcos Frias put up a Low-A pitcher’s line of three runs on eight hits with no walks and two strikeouts for the loss. Adrian Nieto’s RBI single following Michael Taylor’s one-out double broke up the shutout bid in the top of the 8th as the P-Nats were unable to capitalize on six walks issued, twice hitting into double plays and stranding 11 baserunners. A.J. Cole threw six of ten pitches for strikes and got the last two outs for the save at the 2013 Futures Game yesterday afternoon. Need 964 more words about it? Adam Kilgore’s got you covered.

He finished with a run on two hits, no walks, and eight strikeouts for his team-leading seventh win. Sam Palace matched his 2012 RBI total in his first game of the season.
