He finished with three walks, four strikeouts, and a hit batsman. Fellow rehabber Brandon Kintzler also made an appearance and retired the side in order in the 6th. Aldrem Corredor singled, doubled, and drove in three while Ian Sagdal and Nick Banks both singled twice to lead the P-Nats offense. Roster moves: RHPs Jeremy Hellickson, Brandon Kintzler assigned from Washington for MLB Rehab; Matt DeRosier reassigned from Hagerstown.
Wilmington vs. Potomac – PPD
Like last night in Hagerstown, rain came after the first game. With both teams needing to hit the road, they opted to not play the second game. Unlike the Suns and ‘Hoppers, the P-Nats and Blue rocks do have one more series – Aug. 31st to Sep. 3rd. Best guess for the makeup date: Saturday, September 1st.
Delmarva 8 Hagerstown 7

Tomas Alastre went the first five innings and gave up six runs (two earned) on five hits and three walks. Andrew Lee took the loss on an unearned run let in over two innings on a walk-steal-error-sac-fly sequence in the 7th. Yasel Antuna single and homered and drove in two while Paul Panaccione went 2-for-4 with two RBI in relief of Cole Freeman, who appeared to be given the night off after presumably not reacting properly to popping up to the catcher in the top of the 1st. Roster moves: RHP Brigham Hill activated from the 7-Day DL.
West Virginia vs. Auburn – PPD
Rain washed away the series opener between Auburn and West Virginia They’ll make it up with a doubleheader tonight. Roster moves: RHP Tanner Driskill, LHP Aaron Fletcher reassigned from GCL..
