Harrisburg 5 Bowie 4 – GAME ONE
• Darnell (W, 7-5) 6IP, 3H, R, ER, 0BB, 2K, HR
• Bacus (SV, 2) ⅔ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K, 1-0 IR-S
• Kieboom 2-3, 2R, E(6)
• Noll 2-2, RBI, HBP, E(9)
• H. Jones 1-3, 2R, BB
The Sens built a 4-0 lead after three, added a run in the 6th, and held on in the 7th for a 5-4 win in the opener. Logan Darnell tossed six innings of one-run ball (HR) and walked none to win his seventh game. He gave up three hits total and struck out two. Ronald Pena nearly blew the save as he retired just one of five batters faced in the 7th before Dakota Bacus stranded the tying run while getting the last two outs for the save, his second. Carter Kieboom and Jake Noll both singled twice (and committed an error) to lead the Harrisburg offense (defense, not so much).
Harrisburg 4 Bowie 3 – GAME TWO
• Long 5⅓ IP, 8H, 3R, 3ER, BB, 3K
• Williams (W, 3-3) 1⅔ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 3K, 2-0 IR-S
• Norfork 1-3, R, HR, 3RBI
• H. Jones 1-3, R, BB, SB, OF assist at 2B
The BaySox built a 3-0 lead after three only to see it go poof with Khayyan Norfork’s third HR. Bowie then quite literally threw it away in the bottom of the 7th as an errant throw on a steal of second base got past the infielders and the outfielders for a 4-3 walkoff win and a doubleheader sweep for Harrisburg. Jaron Long got the no-decision as he gave up all three BaySox run on eight hits and a walk over five and a 1/3rd innings. Austen Williams stranded two in the 6th and pitched a 1-2-3 seventh to earn the win. The Senators managed just five hits but drew five walks, including 12-pitch effort by Hunter Jones, who scored the game-winning run.

• Canning 1-4, R, HR, RBI
The Suns’ philanthropy repeated itself with another game given away in the 9th as BlueClaws walked off with a three-run HR and a 4-3 win in the series finale. Malvin Pena turned five innings of one-run ball on four hits and a walk while striking out a season high of seven. Frankie “Goes to Hagerstown” Bartow gave up a leadoff single to start the 9th but after getting two outs on a caught stealing and a whiff, issued a walk, a single, and a three-run HR to get the blown-save-loss. Phil “Don’t Call Me Holden” Caulfield singled and doubled while Gage Canning homered to lead the Hagerstown offense.
Connecticut 2 Auburn 0
• F. Peguero (L, 2-3) 5IP, 3H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 4K, HR
• Tapani 3IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Pryor 2-4
• O’Connor 1-3, BB
Auburn couldn’t complete the sweep of Connecticut, falling 2-0 in the finale. Francys Peguero gave up both Tigers runs on a two-run HR in the 3rd and three hits total over five innings. He walked one and struck out four while losing his third game. Ryan Tapani threw three scoreless and Nector Ramirez one to keep things close, but the Doubledays were 0-for-8 with RISP and left on nine baserunners. Jonathan Pryor singled twice to lead Auburn’s six-hit barrage.
