• Cordero 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Marmolejos 3-3, BB, RBI
• Norfork 1-4, R, 2B
The Squirrels struck for four in the 4th and cruised to a 6-2 win to earn a split of the four-game series. Wirkin “For the Weekend” Estevez lost for the first time at AA, as he was dinged with all six Richmond runs (four earned) on seven hits and three walks over five innings. Derek Self and Jimmy Cordero combined for three scorless innings of relief. The Harrisburg offense was held to seven hits. Three of them came off the bat of Jose “Orange” Marmolejos, who also drew one of the two Senator walks.
Wilmington 2 Potomac 1 (11 inn.)
• Guilbeau 7IP, 3H, R, ER, 3BB, 4K
• Bacus 3IP, 2H, 0R, BB, K, WP
• Pantoja (L, 0-2) ⅓ IP, 2H, 1R, 0ER, BB, 0K
• Sagdal 3-5, 2-2B
• Carey 2-4, BB, RBI
Potomac had 12 chances with RISP and converted just one as they left 13 runners on base and lost 2-1 in 11 innings. Taylor Guilbeau got the start and let in one run on three hits and three walks while striking out four for the no-decision. Following three scoreless by Dakota Bacus, the loss went to Jorge Pantoja who gave up a run on two hits while retiring just one batter. Ian Sagdal singled once and doubled twice while Dale Carey drove in the lone P-Nats run while going 2-for-4 with a walk to lead the nine-hit, seven-walk offense.
Lexington 2 Hagerstown 0 – GAME ONE
• Sharp (L, 4-7) 5⅔ IP, 7H, 2R, 2ER, BB, K, HR
• Morse ⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Franco 1-3, 2B
• Agustin 1-3, SB(5)
The Legends shut out the Suns on five hits in the opener for a 2-0 win. Sterling Sharp took the loss, his seventh, and gave up both Lexington runs on seven hits and a walk over five and 2/3rds innings. He was lifted after 101 pitches. Phil Morse struck out the only batter he faced to close out the 6th. Hagerstown twice got a runner over to third base with two outs but couldn’t get the run, as they left on nine baserunners and went 1-for-8 with RISP.
Hagerstown 13 Lexington 2 – GAME TWO
• C. Pena (W, 5-5) 7IP, 7H, 2R, 2ER, 3BB, 4K, HR
• Corredor 3-4, R, BB, 2RBI, SB
• Agustin 2-4, 2R, 2-2B
• Banks 2-4, 2R, 2B, HR, 4RBI
The Hagerstown bats came alive in the nightcap, peaking with an eight-run 5th that gave the Suns a 13-2 win and a doubleheader split. Carlos Pena went the distance (well, seven innings) with seven hits and three walks given up and four strikeouts for his fifth win. Anderson Franco was the beer man in the 15-hit assault, which was led by Aldrem Corredor with three singles and Nick Banks with a double, a homer, and four RBI. Roster moves: LHP McKenzie Mills activated from the 3-Day TIL.

• Troop (L, 1-1) 5IP, 5H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 2K, HR
• Ortiz 2-4, 2RBI
• Jo. Ramirez 2-3, R
Vermont scored in each of its last four “ups” to erase an early 1-0 lead and, um, double up Auburn, 6-3. Alex Troop took the loss with two runs allowed on five hits and a walk over five innings. Oliver Ortiz drove in two while singling twice, as did Joshual Ramirez to pace the Doubleday offense.
