Taylor Guilbeau started and went the first five and was knocked around for five runs on nine hits without a walk and three whiffs. Ronald Pena threw three scoreless innings to keep things close but Gilberto Mendez coughed up the game-winning homer to the second batter he faced, suffering his fourth loss and second in eight days to Salem. The trio of Jack Sundberg, Taylor Gushue, and Edwin Lora each singled and doubled to lead Potomac’s 13-hit parade. The loss formally eliminated Potomac from the division title and knocked them back to four games behind Salem in the wildcard race.

Nick Choruby singled three times while Omar Meregildo homered again and Jeyner Baez went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI to lead the Auburn offense.
