Potomac scored in each of the first four innings en route to a 10-1 demolition of Lynchburg. Boone Whiting was touched for a solo HR by the second batter he faced, then retired 13 of the next 14 batters to finish with the one run on one hit and one walk over five innings pitched. He struck out three. Andrew Robinson followed with three shutout innings while Koda Glover declawed the ‘Cats with a 1-2-3 ninth. Every starter hit safely and even the one replacement (David Masters) joined the 17-hit parade with a 9th-inning double.

After giving up two in the top half of the 3rd, the Suns immediately answered with three in the bottom half of the inning to take a 3-2 lead, then held on for a 4-3 win. Starting pitcher Matt DeRosier got the win with five innings of two-run ball, allowing three hits and a walk. Mick VanVossen gave up an unearned run over the next three for the hold while Ronald Pena made his first appearance north of Florida since July 2014 as he worked around a hit in the 9th for the save. Victor Robles homered, walked, stole a base, and scored twice while Rhett Wiseman singled, doubled, and drove in two to lead the Hagerstown attack.
