Kaleb Fleck retired the side in order in the 8th for the hold while Bryan Harper worked around a hit and a walk in the 9th to preserve the win and earn the save. Zach Collier and Dan Gamache both went 2-for-4 with Collier scoring after a triple and .211-hitting Austin Davidson’s groundout RBI in the 2nd and Taylor Gushue hitting a sac fly in the 3rd.

Wilmington rallied for four in the 9th and Potomac had no answer for a 7-4 loss. Wil Crowe labored a little (81 pitches) as he gave up a two-run HR and four hits total over five innings. He walked two and struck out three in the no-decision. James Bourque took the loss as the Blue Rocks dinged him for the aforementioned four runs on three hits and two walks for his second blown save and second loss. Carter Kieboom remains red-hot in the month of May (.413/.513/.603) as he connected for a single and a double and drove in a run while Rhett Wiseman, who’s also had a strong second month at the plate (.327/.400/.714, 6HR) singled and walked to pace the P-Nats attack. Roster moves: 1B Ian Sagdal placed on the 7-Day DL; 2B Branden Boggetto promoted from Hagerstown.
The Suns were rained out for the seventh time last night. They’ll shoot to make it up tomorrow night—it’s a Thirsty Thursday!—rather than play two today. Roster move: SS Paul Panaccione assigned from XST.
