Syracuse 8 Buffalo 4
• Voth 4⅓ IP, 5H, 4R, 2ER, 4BB, 3K, 2WP
• Cotts (W, 1-0) 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Robinson 2-4, 2R, 2HR, 5RBI
• Skole 1-3, R, 2B, SF, 2RBI
• Sanchez 2-3, 2R, BB
Clint Robinson homered twice and drove in five to help end the Chiefs’ five-game slide, 8-4 over the Bison. Austin Voth got the start but didn’t make it out of the 5th, charged with four runs (two earned) on five hits and four walks over four and a 1/3rd innings. The win went to Neal Cotts for a single scoreless inning in the top of the 7th while the Syracuse scored four in the bottom of the 7th. Adrian Sanchez reached base three times with two singles and a walk and scored twice to lead the Chiefs’ 13-hit parade.
Erie 5 Harrisburg 4
• Simms 6IP, 8H, 3R, 3ER, BB, K, HBP
• Suero (L, 0-1) 1IP, 1H, 1R, 1ER, 0BB, 1K, WP
• Collier 3-5, R, 2B, RBI, SB
• Abreu 1-2, R, 2B, BB
Harrisburg’s bullpen woes continue as they gave up single runs in the 8th and 9th innings to turn 4-3 lead in to a 5-4 loss to Erie. John Simms turned in his third straight quality start and his third no-decision with three runs on eight hits and a walk over six innings. Wander Suero lost it in the 9th as a single, stolen base, and—don’t forget who’s catching—a wild pitch plated the game-winning run. Zach Collier went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI but the Sens managed just six hits total and were a woeful 2-for-13 with RISP, including two flyouts with the tying run on second in the 9th.
Wilmington 3 Potomac 2
• Rodriguez 6IP, 4H, 2R, 2ER, 4BB, 5K, HBP
• R. Pena (L, 1-1) 1IP, 2H, R, ER, 2BB, 0K, WP
• Davidson 1-2, 2B, 2BB, RBI
• Wiseman 1-3
The P-Nats scored two in the 1st but were shut down after that as the Blue Rocks tied it in the 3rd and walked off in the 9th. Jefry Rodriguez allowed the first two runs on four hits and four walks ans struck out five over six innings. Ronald Pena suffered the loss as he let in the gamewinner on two hits and two walks. Austin Davidson doubled and walked twice but Potomac was held to just three hits and three walks total.
