• Baez (L, 0-1) 3IP, 8H, 6R, 5ER, 0BB, 3K, HR, 2WP, HBP
• Lora 2-4, R, RBI
• Noll 2-5, R, 2B, HR, 3RBI
• Sundberg 1-1, 2R, 2BB
Joan Baez loaded the bases in the 3rd but rolled a double play to get out of it. Unfortunately, that only kept the deficit at 6-0 as the Keys pounded the P-Nats 11-6 in the series opener. Baez did not issue a walk for the first time since August 2, 2016 but did give up eight hits and hit a batter while suffering the loss. Potomac squeezed six runs out of just eight hits and three walks, led by Jake Noll (double, HR, 3RBI) and Edwin Lora (two singles, RBI). Roster moves: 1B-OF Ian Sagdal placed on the 7-Day; IF David Masters activated from the 7-Day DL..

Hagerstown led Greensboro 5-0 after two, and 7-3 after four, and 9-7 after seven, but couldn’t hold on for 10-9 loss in 10 innings. Jackson Tetrault piled up eight K’s but also gave up eight hits, including a home run and four runs total after five for the no-decision. A.J. Bogucki (2R, 2IP) and Jared Brasher (3R, 2IP) brought the gas instead of the water to put out the fire, but the loss went to Max Engelbrekt who let in the runner placed on 2nd in the 10th on a one-out single. Luis Garcia led the Suns 13-hit parade with four singles, followed by Alejandro Flores’s 3-for-5 night.
