The Chiefs were shut out for the first time this season, 2-0 by the Indians. The game was still 0-0 in the 8th when Indianapolis ripped a triple and a single off losing pitcher Tim Collins. A sacrifice, wild pitch, and a groundout plated the second run. Austin Voth spun another five scoreless innings with five hits let up and no walks while striking out three for the no-decision. Reigning I.L. Batter of the Week Rafael Bautista went 2-for-5 to lower his AAA batting average to .429 while Tuffy Gosewich reached base three times with a single and two walks. Syracuse was 0-for-10 with RISP and stranded 12 baserunners.
Trenton 3 Harrisburg 1
• Rodriguez (L, 1-2) 6IP, 4H, 3R, 3ER, 3BB, 8K, HBP
• Mendez 2IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 4K
• Davidson 3-4, 2B, CS
• Johnson 1-4, R, 3B
Jefry Rodriguez didn’t get the memo that giving up multiple runs early, a habit that many of his Potomac teammates fell into last summer, still loses ballgames at the next level. Trenton jumped on him and Harrisburg for three runs in the 1st and cruised to a 3-1 win. Rodriguez followed with five scoreless to notch a quality start, walking three and striking out eight in his second loss. Austin Davidson collected three hits in his AA debut. His teammates almost matched him, going 2-for-27 with 12 strikeouts. Daniel Johnson scored the lone Sens run after leading off the 4th with a triple and coming home on an groundout.

Hagerstown went for two in the 2nd and converted for an 8-0 lead as they took the first of 25 games (yes, really) vs. Lakewood this season, 9-1. Nick Raquet earned his first Low-A win with six innings of one-run ball on four hits and two walks while striking out three. Jeremy McKinney (2IP) and Max Engelbrekt (1IP) combined for three scoreless to finish the game. Brandon Boggetto led the Suns 11-hit parade with a 4-for-4 night, scoring twice and driving in two, followed by Anderson Franco, who reached base three times with a walk, single, and a double.
