Joe Ross pitched seven innings and the offense scored seven times, building a lead big enough for the bullpen not to blow as the Chiefs beat the Bisons, 7-5. Ross allowed one run and scattered eight hits wile walking one and striking out six. Joe Nathan let in two inherited runners before getting the last two outs for his fourth save. Jhonatan Solano got the Syracuse offense going with his first career grand slam in the 5th, while Adrian Sanchez and Grant Green both singled three times to lead the 11-hit, seven-walk attack. Roster move: LHP Matt Grace recalled to Washington

Harrisburg put up crooked numbers in four straight innings to erase an early 2-0 deficit and cruise to a 12-4 win over Bowie. Taylor Hill kept the ball in the yard and prevented nine of 12 baserunners from scoring as he won his first AA game of ’17 with six innings of three-run ball. Stephen Perez, Raudy Read, and Neftali Soto each homered while Drew Ward walked three times to pace the Senators offense.

• Davidson 2-3, R, BB, HR, RBI
• Mejia 1-3, R, 2B
• Robles 2-5, 2R
The P-Nats fell behind early and could never catch up as the Blue Rocks took Game 3 by a 5-2 count. Matt Crownover pitched into the 7th and struck out a season-high nine batters but was charged with four runs on nine hits and no walks over six and 2/3rds. Taylor Guilbeau gave up an unearned run in the 9th while closing out the final two and a 1/3rd innings. Austin Davidson reached base three times with a homer, walk, and a single but the team was held to four hits and two walks total. Roster move: RHP Noaln Sanburn assigned from Washington Nationals.
