Syracuse 4 Rochester 3 (10 inn.)
• Jackson 6IP, 5H, 3R, 3ER, BB, 2K
• Simms 2⅔ IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 5K, HBP
• Collins (W, 1-1) ⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Reynolds 2-4, 3R, 2B, BB, HR, RBI
• Hague 3-4, BB, RBI
Hunter Jones’s one-out double after an IBB and failed sacrifice in the 10th made the Chiefs a walkoff winner by 4-3 score over Rochester. Extras were necessary in large part because Syracuse left on 14 baserunners and went just 3-for-16 with RISP. [Insert comparison to big club here]. Edwin Jackson made the quality start of three runs allowed on five hits and a walk while striking out two. The bullpen locked it down with four scoreless, led by John Simms (2⅔ IP) with Tim Collins rewarded for his rough outing of striking out the only batter he faced with a win. Newly acquired 1B Matt Hague reached base four times with three singles and a walk to lead the Chiefs’ 12-hit parade. Roster move: 1B Matt Hague assigned from Washington.
Harrisburg 2 Altoona 1
• Estevez 6IP, 3H, R, ER, BB, 5K, HR
• Darnell (W, 2-0) 1IP, 0H, 0R, BB, K
• Williams (SV, 1) 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Gutierrez 1-3, R, SF, RBI
• Abreu 1-2, 2BB
• Ward 0-1, 2BB
Kelvin Gutierrez’s sac fly in the 8th pushed Harrisburg ahead of Altoona while Austen Williams struck out the side in the 9th to seal a 2-1 victory. Wirkin “For the Weekend” Estevez lost the shutout with a solo HR in the 3rd but gave up just three hits and a walk over six innings while striking out five. The win went to Logan Darnell with two scoreless while Williams garnered the save. The Sens managed just four hits total but drew seven walks, including two apiece by Drew Ward and Osvaldo Abreu.
Roster moves: RHP Logan Darnell activated from the 3-Day TIL; RHP Dakota Bacus placed on the 7-Day DL.
Potomac 9 Lynchburg 3

• Wiseman 1-3, R, 2BB, SB, RBI
• Perkins 2-4, R, 2B, 2BB, RBI
Bryan Mejia’s grand slam capped off a five-run 7th that snapped a 3-3 tie as the P-Nats tripled up the Hillcats, 9-3. Sterling Sharp got the win with all three Lynchburg runs allowed on six hits and a walk while fanning four. Jordan Mills closed out the game with three scoreless to earn his second save. Carter Kieboom was the beer man in Potomac’s 12-hit, eight-walk assault, with Mejia, Blake Perkins, Jakson Reetz, and Ian Sagdal each collecting two hits.

Rome got single runs in the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th innings while Hagerstown pushed across just one run for its fourth straight loss, 3-1. Alex Troop gave up all three Braves runs on eight hits over five innings without a walk and four whiffs. A.J. Bogucki and Jared Brasher both spun two scoreless innings but the Suns were held to just three hits and two walks, with Jack Sundberg the sole batter to reach base twice (single, walk), and Nick Banks breaking up the shutout with a two-out RBI double in the 4th.
