Buffalo 7 Syracuse 1
• Hill (L, 1-4) 5IP, 9H, 7R, 7ER, BB, 4K, HBP, 0HR
• Gott 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Snyder 2-4, R, 2B, OF assist at 2B
• Severino 1-4, RBI
• 1-for-7 RISP, 7 LOB
Pedro Severino broke up Buffalo’s shutout bid with two out in the 9th as Syracuse reverted to the mean with a 7-1 loss. Taylor Hill kept the ball in the yard but kept the fielders busy with nine hits allowed and seven runs let in over five innings for his fourth loss in six starts. Mike Broadway and Trevor Gott both did their part with two scoreless inning apiece, but the Chiefs offense was out to lunch with just four hits total, led by Brandon Snyder who singled, doubled, and scored the lone run.
Erie 5 Harrisburg 3
• Long 6IP, 8H, 2R, 2ER, 2BB, 5K, WP
• Glover (H, 1) 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Lara (BS, 2; L, 0-1) ⅔ IP, 4H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 0K, HR
• Keller 2-4, R, 2B
• Norfork 1-3, 2B
Another Sens quality start was ruined by a bullpen implosion as Braulio Lara gave up three in the 8th to turn a 3-2 Harrisburg lead into a 5-3 loss. Jaron Long allowed two runs on eight hits and two walk over six innings for the no-decision. After Koda Glover came on to put in his rehab work in the 7th, Lara got a popup and then served up a single-homer-single-single-single combo before getting a sac fly that ended his outing in the 8th. Alec Keller went 2-for-4 with a double to lead the Senators’ seven-hit, one-walk offense. Roster move: Koda Glover assigned from Washington for MLB rehab.
Potomac 6 Wilmington 1 – GAME ONE
• Baez (W, 1-4) 5IP, 4H, 1R, 1ER, 4BB, 3K, WP
• Schepel 2IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Gushue 2-3, 2R, 2HR, 4RBI, E(3)
• Davidson 2-3, R, SB
• Mejia 2-3, R, 2B, RBI, SB
Taylor Gushue crushed a pair of two-run homers while Joan Baez spun his second straight one-run outing as Potomac took the opener, 6-1 from Wilmington. Baez allowed the lone Blue Rocks run on four hits and four walks while striking out three in five innings for his first win of 2017. Kyle Schepel pitched two scoreless to close it out. Gushue, Austin Davidson, and Bryan Mejia each went 2-for-3 as the P-Nats collected eight hits and went 2-for-4 with RISP.
Wilmington 4 Potomac 3 (11 inn.) – GAME TWO
• Crownover 6IP, 3H, 1R, 1ER, 0BB, 5K
• Held (L, 0-2) 2⅓ IP, 3H, 2R, 2ER, 3BB, 2K
• Page 3-4, R, 2B
• Robles 0-3, 2SAC, GIDP (6-for-35 since coming off the DL)
• 20K by Wilmington pitchers
Potomac rallied twice in the late innings but Wilmington answered both times, tying it in the 8th, and winning it in the 11th to earn a doubleheader split. Matt Crownover got in on the no-decision fun with six innings of one-run ball on three hits with nary a walk and five whiffs. Sam Held got a groundout to start his third inning of work but then loaded the bases on a single, hit batsman, and a walk and served up the game-winning two-run single for the loss, his second. Matt Page went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored as the only P-Nat with more than one hit and less than two strikeouts, as the Blue Rocks pitchers struck out 20 in 11 innings – eight by Gabe Cramer in the last three innings.
Rome 8 Hagerstown 7 (10 inn.)
• Bourque 5⅓ IP, 7H, 4R, 4ER, BB, 5K, WP
• Peterson (BS, 1) 1⅓ IP, 2H, R, ER, BB, 0K, 2-2 IR-S
• J. Mills (L, 4-1) 1IP, 2H, R, ER, BB, K
• Perkins 2-5, 2R, 2B, BB, SB
• Neuse 2-4, BB, RBI, SB
• Kieboom 2-4, R, 2B, RBI (ejected in 7th)
The Suns rallied from 4-1 early to take a 6-4 lead late but fell in extras, 8-7. James Bourque pitched into the 6th and let in the first four Braves runs on seven hits over five and a 1/3rd innings. He walked one and struck out five. Jordan Mills lost for the first time as Rome rallied in the 10th for a run on two singles and a walk. Blake Perkins and Sheldon Neuse both reached base three times and stole a bag to lead Hagerstown’s 15-hit parade. Roster move: RHP Tommy Peterson activated from the 7-Day DL, reassigned from Potomac.
