Syracuse 9 Lehigh Valley 4
• Voth 6IP, 4H, 1R, 0ER, 0BB, 9K
• Davis (BS, 1; W, 2-0) 2IP, 2H, R, ER, 0BB, 4K
• Turner 3-5, R, 2B, HR, 3RBI
• Keyes 3-5, R, 2B, 2RBI
• Skole 2-5, R
A seven-run 8th threw the switch on a 2-2 tie as Syracuse derailed Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for a 9-4 win. Austin Voth did not walk a batter again in six innings as he allowed an unearned run on four hits while striking out nine in a no-decision. Erik Davis got the blown-save-win with a run let in on two hits over two innings. Trea Turner was a triple shy of the cycle as he drove in three while going 3-for-5, a mark that Kevin Keyes matched with a double and two singles and two RBI.
Bowie 7 Harrisburg 2
• Williams (L, 0-3) 5IP, 7H, 7R, 7ER, 3BB, 3K, 2HR
• Mendez 2IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 4K
• Dykstra 2-3, BB
• Bautista 1-3, R, 2B, 2BB, SB
A five-run 1st by the BaySox was more than enough as the Sens lost their third straight, 7-2. Big flies bookended Austen Williams’s third start (and third loss), with a two-run shot in the 1st and another in the 5th, his final inning. The 23-y.o. Texan gave up seven runs on seven hits and walked three. Rafael Bautista and Cutter Dykstra both reach base three times to lead the Harrisburg offense, which once again struggled to convert baserunners to runs with a 1-for-10 mark with RISP and ten left on base.
Roster move: RHP Jaron Long assigned from Washington.
Potomac 5 Wilmington 2
• Valdez (W, 3-1) 7IP, 2H, 2R, 1ER, 0BB, 11K
• Brinley (SV, 2) 2IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Read 2-5, R, 2RBI
• Mesa 1-4, R, 3B, RBI
The P-Nats domination of the Blue Rocks on the road continued with a 5-2 win, the fourth straight for Potomac. Phillips Valdez struck out 11 against no walks while letting in two over seven strong innings (80 pitches, 58 for strikes) to win his third game in four starts. Ryan Brinley closed out the game with two scoreless for his second save. Raudy Read went 2-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI to pace the P-Nats offense.
Hagerstown 7 Hickory 6
• A. Lee 5IP, 4H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, 6K
• Rivera (W, 2-0) 2IP, 1H, 1R, 1ER, 0BB, 1K
• Gutierrez 3-5, R
• Page 2-5, R, 3B, 3RBI
• Robles 2-5, 2R, 2B, RBI, 2SB
Hagerstown went back to the same, um, page of the script as they wrote up another walkoff win over Hickory, 7-6. The comeback masked a poor showing by the bullpen (4IP, 4R) and took another “W” away from Andrew Lee, who turned in five innings of two-run ball on four hits. He walked none and struck out six. Matthew Page’s IF single to 3B plated Victor Robles for the gamewinner as the Suns rallied for two in the 9th. Page drove in three while Kelvin Gutierrez collected three hits to lead the Suns’ 13-hit, zero-walk offense.
