Wet grounds were cited for the postponement of Wednesday’s game, which they’ll try to make up tonight. Jacob Wilson was named to the I.L. Roster for the AAA All-Star Game, which will be held on July 11th in Columbus.
Altoona 7 Harrisburg 2
• McGowin (L, 4-2) 5IP, 8H, 7R, 6ER, 5BB, 2K, HBP

Altoona made it four straight against Harrisburg with a 7-2 win. Kyle McGowin was bent by the Curve for all seven runs on eight hits and five walks while striking out two. He also hit a batter while taking his second loss. Ismael Guillon, Bryan Harper, and Derek Self each put up a donut on the bottom half of the scoreboard to close out game. The trio of Osvaldo Abreu, Alec Keller, and Carter Kieboom combined for six hits, including a triple (Keller), a homer (
Simpson, Section 7G Abreu), and two walks (Abreu, Kieboom). Roster moves: RHP Wirkin Estevez placed on the 7-Day DL; RHP Sterling Sharp reassigned from Potomac.
Down East 7 Potomac 5
• Baez (L, 3-6) 3⅓ IP, 7H, 7R, 7ER, 2BB, 3K, HBP, WP

• Corredor 3-4, R, HR, 3RBI
• Wiseman 2-4, R
• Sundberg 2-4, R, CS(5)
The Wood Ducks rallied from 1-0 and 5-3 down to take this one, 7-5 and a 2-1 lead in the five-game series. Joan Baez lost for the sixth time and gave up all seven Down East runs on seven hits and two walks over three and a 1/3rd innings. Steven Fuentes let in one inherited runner while getting out of the 4th and threw two more scoreless innings. Hayden Howard added two more too but the P-Nats threatened just once more, putting the tying runs on in the 8th with a walk and Aldrem Corredor’s third hit before Jakson Reetz grounded out to end the inning. Both Corredor and Reetz homered to lead Potomac’s 10-hit effort. Roster move: RHP A.J. Bogucki reassigned from Hagerstown.
Lakewood 4 Hagerstown 3
• Lee 4⅓ IP, 2H, 3R, 3ER, 6BB, 4K, HR, HBP, 2WP
• Brasher 1⅔ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 1K, 1-0 IR-S
• Held (L, 2-4) 2IP, 2H, R, ER, 0BB, 1K
• Antuna 2-4, CS
• Garcia 1-3, R, BB
Lakewood continued its dominance over Hagerstown with its 11th win in 15 meetings (only nine more to go!) with a 4-3 win in the series opener. Andrew Lee got the start and wobbled through four and a 1/3rd innings, issuing six walks, hitting a batter, and throwing two wild pitches. He gave up three runs on two hits, including a home run. The loss went to Sam Held on a run given up in the 8th, his second inning of work. Yasel Antuna singled twice in four trips to the plate and committed his 21st error. Luis Garcia was error-free (as the DH, natch) and reached base twice via a single and a walk as did Cole Freeman. Roster move: RHP Frankie Bartow* promoted from Auburn.* If anyone at the Muni is reading and wondering what to play while he’s warming up to close out the game… you’re welcome.
