Rochester 10 Syracuse 6 – GAME ONE
• Voth (L, 0-1) 3IP, 9H, 7R, 7ER, BB, 3K, HR
• Gott 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Robinson 3-4, 2-2B, 3RBI
• Falu 1-2, R, BB
Austin Voth failed to make it past the 4th inning again while Syracuse’s too-late rally was too little in a 10-6 loss to Rochester. Voth was lit up for seven runs on nine hits and a walk over three innings to lose for the first time in ’17. Clint Robinson drove in three while going 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles to lead the Chiefs offense.
Syracuse 7 Rochester 6 – GAME TWO
• Hill 4⅔ IP, 7H, 5R, 5ER, BB, K, 2HR
• Adams 1⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, BB, K; 1-0 IR-S
• Snyder 3-4, 2B, HR, 2RBI
• Solano 2-4, 2B, RBI
• Joseph 3-4, RBI
The Chiefs jumped out to a 4-0 lead early and held off the Red Wings late for a 7-6 win to split the doubleheader. Taylor Hill couldn’t go the requisite five innings for the “W” and was charged with five runs on seven hits, including the fourth and five HRs he’s allowed thus far in 2017, and a walk over four and 2/3rds innings. Austin Adams was awarded the win as the most effective reliever to follow Hill as he retired four of five batters faced and did not allow an inherited runner to score. Brandon Snyder, Matt Skole, and Adrian Sanchez each homered while every Syracuse batter reached base in the 14-hit outburst.
Harrisburg – OFF DAY
Harrisburg continues its seven-game, eight-day road trip with four games in Hartford.
Wilmington 5 Potomac 4 (11 inn.)
• Estevez 6IP, 2H, R, ER, 2BB, 4K, HR, HBP
• Schepel (BS, 1) 1IP, 3H, 3R, 3ER, 2BB, 1K
• Mayberry (L, 0-1) 1IP, 3H, R, ER, BB, K
• Wiseman 2-3, R, 3BB, CS
• Carey 2-5, R, 3B, BB, 2RBI
Potomac got the tying and winning run on base with nobody out in the bottom of the 11th but couldn’t hit the ball out of the infield to get the equalizer as they fell to Wilmington in extras, 5-4 and dropped the series, 3-1. Wirkin “For the Weekend” Estevez turned in a strong start, pitching six innings of one-run ball on two hits (one solo HR) and two walks while fanning four. Rhett Wiseman singled twice, walked three times (once intentionally) to lead the Potomac offense, which left 14 runners on base and went just 2-for-15 with RISP.
Hagerstown 15 Delmarva 6
• C. Pena (W, 1-0) 5IP, 5H, R, ER, 2BB, 2K
• Pantoja 1⅔ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 1K, 1-0 IR-S
• Corredor 3-3, 2R, 3-2B, 2BB
• Johnson 3-5, 2R, HR, BB, 3RBI
• Neuse 2-5, 2R, 2B, HR, 3RBI
The Suns put up four spots three times in the final four innings to turn a 2-1 pitcher’s duel into a 15-6 demolition of the Shorebirds. Carlos Pena got the win with one run let in over five innings pitched on five hits and two walks. Matt DeRosier was dinged for the final five Delmarva runs on four hits and two walks over two and a 1/3rd innings in his 2017 debut while Jorge Pantoja got the final five outs with just one hit allowed. Dan Johnson hit his Sally Lg.-leading fifth HR and drove in three while Sheldon Neuse (second) and Jake Noll (third) also went deep in the 15-hit, seven-walk assault.
