The Baysox returned the favor from Tuesday’s smackdown with a 14-2 win over the Senators on Wednesday.

• Sagdal 2-4, R
• Wiseman 1-3, R, 3B, 2RBI

Potomac got all its runs again in a single inning and stellar pitching to edge Myrtle Beach, 3-2 for their third straight win. Sterling Sharp bounced back from the beating he took in Winston-Salem with a quality start of two runs on six hits, no walks, and six whiffs over six innings. He threw 79 pitches, 58 for strikes. Tommy Peterson followed with a scoreless inning for the hold while Gilberto Mendez worked around a leadoff single in the 9th after a 1-2-3 eighth to earn his 11th save. Rhett Wiseman’s two-run triple capped the P-Nats’ three-run 4th while Ian Sagdal went 2-for-4 to lead the hit column.

Brigham Hill started and pitched into the 6th when he gave up four of his seven hits surrendered to fall into a 2-2 tie. Carlos Pena came on with the bases loaded and one out and struck out the next two batters to strand all three runners, then six more over the final three innings to pick up the win. Jake Noll also went deep, hitting his 15th HR in the 4th as the Suns managed just five hits total.

  1. Pleasantly surprised with the year Noll is having.

    Does anyone have a scouting report on him? Is he a legitimate prospect?

    1. Ironic his hitting went to next level after Neuse trade.
      Carlos Pena arm may play better in bullpen roles
