An error and a passed ball led to the two unearned runs that won it for the Bisons, 8-6 over the Chiefs. A.J. Cole didn’t make it out of the third inning as he was stampeded for six runs on five hits and two walks over two and 2/3rds innings. Joe Nathan took the loss with a hit and two walks allowed over two innings. Andrew Stevenson and Clint Robinson both went 2-for-4 to lead the Syracuse offense. Roster moves: RHP Austin Adams placed on the 7-Day DL; LHP Matt Grace optioned from Washington.
Harrisburg – OFF DAY
After splitting a four-game series at Trenton, Harrisburg hosts Bowie for three before heading back out on the road for seven against Richmond and Erie. Roster moves: RHP Taylor Hill demoted from Syracuse.
Wilmington 2 Potomac 0
• Baez (L, 1-5) 5⅔ IP, 5H, 2R, 2ER, 4BB, 4K, WP
• Schepel 2⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K, 1-0 IR-S
• Gushue 1-2, 2BB
• Gutierrez 2-4, SB
Blue Rocks starter Scott Blewett didn’t as he combined with Franco Terrero on a four-hit shutout of the P-Nats, 2-0. Joan Baez took the loss despite pitching well, letting in both Wilmington runs on five hits and four walks while striking out four. Kyle Schepel and Jorge Pantoja retired 10 of 12 batter faced to keep things close. Taylor Gushue singled once and walked twice while Kelvin Gutierrez doubled, singled, and stole a base. The rest of the lineup went 1-for-25 (Edwin Lora, double). Roster moves: LHPs Grant Borne, Taylor Guilbeau reassigned from Auburn; RHPs Whit Mayberry, Sam Held removed from the roster.
Asheville 13 Hagerstown 2
• Bourque (L, 0-2) 5IP, 7H, 7R, 6ER, 0BB, 6K, HR
• Noll 2-4, R
• Corredor 2-4, 2B
Asheville jumped on James Bourque for five in the 1st and never looked back in a 13-2 smackdown of Hagerstown. Bourque gave up seven runs (six earned) over five innings to take his second loss. Neither Yonathan Ramirez (2R, 2IP) nor David Ramos (1IP, 4R) were less ineffective in relief. Jake Noll, Aldrem Corredor, and Sheldon Neuse each had two hits but no RBI as the Suns were 0-for-11 with RISP and left seven runners on base.
