Rochester 8 Syracuse 4
The RedWings got one in the 7th to tie and four in the 8th to win as they doubled up the Chiefs, 8-4 to earn a 2-2 split of the four-game series.

Binghamton 8 Harrisburg 6
• Estevez 4⅔ IP, 12H, 6R, 5ER, 3BB, 2K, HR
• Bacus 1⅓ IP, 2H, R, ER, BB, K, 2-0 IR-S
• Gamache 2-2, 2R, 3BB
• Hernandez 2-2, 2B, 2BB, 3RBI
• Ward 2-4, 2R, BB

Harrisburg twice put up crooked numbers early but Binghamton answered every rally and then added single runs in the 5th, 6th, and the 9th to take the series finale, 8-6. Wirkin Estevez got the start and was knocked from the box in the 5th after six runs in on 12 hits and three walks over four and 2/3rds innings. Dakot Bacus stranded two while getting out of the 5th but was dinged for a run in the 6th, which saddled him with the loss to the Rumble Ponies. Yadiel Hernandez singled, doubled, walked twice, and drove in three while Dan Gamache singled twice, scored twice, and walked thrice to power the Sens’ 12-hit, five-walk offense.

Potomac 4 Winston-Salem 3 (10 inn.)
• Williams 5IP, 8H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 7K, HR
• Mendez (W, 3-2) 1⅔ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Davidson 3-5, R, 2B, RBI
• Masters 2-4, R, HR, 2RBI
• Sagdal 2-4, R, 2B, BB

Taylor Gushue’s RBI single in the 10th snapped a 3-3 tie as the P-Nats edged the Dash, 4-3 in the series finale. Austen Williams got the start and gave up the first two runs on eight hits and a walk over five innings. Gilberto Mendez stranded two in the 9th and pitched a scoreless 10th while getting the “W.” Austin Davidson singled twice and doubled once while David Masters connected for his seventh HR to lead the Potomac offense.

Lakewood 3 Hagerstown 2 (10 inn.)
• Bourque 6⅓ IP, 4H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 4K, WP
• Bogucki (L, 2-2) 3IP, 2H, R, ER, BB, 0K, HBP, 2-1 IR-S
• Barnett ⅓ 1P, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 0K, 1-1 IR-S
• Ortiz 2-3, BB, CS
• La Bruna 2-3, R, BB

A hit batsman turned into the game-winning run as Hagerstown dropped the series finale, 3-2 in 10 innings. A.J. Bogucki took the loss as he was charged with the final Lakewood run after pitching three innings of one-run ball, allowing two hits and a walk before leaving with one out in the 10th. Jake Barnett gave up a two-out single to let in the inherited runner. James Bourque started and had a no-decision with two runs let in on four hits and a walk over the first six and a 1/3rd innings. Oliver Ortiz and Angelo LaBruna both went 2-for-3 with a walk to account for four of the six Suns hits and two of the five walks.

Auburn 6 Williamsport 1
• Raquet (W, 1-1) 5IP, 3H, 0R, BB, K
• Klobosits 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Upshaw 3-4, 2R
• Boggetto 3-5, RBI
• Shepard 2-4, R, 2B

The Doubledays lost the shutout in the 7th but scored twice in the 8th to put the game out of reach of the Crosscutters for a 6-1 win. Nick Raquet got his first win with five scoreless innings, with three hits and one walk allowed and one strikeout. Armond Upshaw and Branden Boggetto each had three singles to lead Auburn’s 14-hit parade. Roster moves: SS Carter Kieboom reassigned from the GCL for MiLB rehab.

GCL Nationals 4 GCL Mets 1
• Romero 2IP, 0H, 0R, 2BB, 3K
• Guillen (W, 2-0) 4IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Antuna 3-4, 2B, CS
• Cramer 2-4, 2R, SB

The G-Nats and G-Mets picked up where they left off last Tuesday and played to a 4-1 win by the former over the latter. Seth Romero tossed two scoreless innings last week, with two walks and three whiffs. Angel Guillen threw four perfect innings yesterday morning to earn the win. Yasel Antuna singled twice, doubled once while Jackson Cramer went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs scored to pace the G-Nats’ attack.
