The Senators broke out of their offensive funk with a three-run rally in the 9th and a four-run salvo in the top of the 10th, then held off the Sea Dogs’ answer in the bottom of the 10 for an 8-7 win. Sterling Sharp pitched into the 6th and gave up the first three Portland runs on eight hits, including a HR, but walked none and struck out seven. The win went to Roman Mendez despite coughing up two homers in the 10th and three runs total over an inning and a 1/3rd. Ronald Pena picked up his third save as he retired two of three batters faced to close out the game. Alec Keller led the way with two singles and a double, followed by Carter Kieboom and Taylor Gushue, who both went-2-for-5 with a double and an RBI. If you missed it above, or in the comments yesterday, today and tomorrow’s games against the Baysox have been cancelled due to flooding on City Isle.
Potomac vs. Buies Creek – PPD
Wednesday’s game between Potomac and Buies Creek was also rained out, setting up a doubleheader today and cancelling the third game of the series because the two teams do not meet again in the regular season. It’s worth noting that this may potentially affect the C.L. South divisional race, as the Astros and the Dash are separated by a half game and tied in the loss column.
Hagerstown vs. Delmarva – PPD
It’s likewise in Western Maryland, where the Suns and Shorebirds have been sidelined since Monday waiting for the rain to abate or a large wooden boat to show up. They’ll shoot for two this afternoon and – believe it or not – they’ll have to cancel two games because this is the last time the two teams play in 2018. This will also potentially affect the Sally Lg. playoffs, too, as Lakewood has not missed a game this week and could repeat its first-half feat of winning the division by virtue of playing two more games.
Auburn vs. Tri-City – PPD
The rain also claimed the game between Auburn and Tri-City, setting up a doubleheader on getaway day and negating the point of the 11 a.m. start.
GCL Mets 11 GCL Nationals 10
• P. Gonzalez (L, 0-1) 1⅔ IP, 11H, 9R, 9ER, 0BB, 2K, 2HR
• A. Hernandez 2⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K, 1-0 IR-S
• Wilson 2-2, R, BB, RBI
• Morales 2-4, 2R, 2-2B, RBI
Pedro Gonzalez dug a 9-1 hole for the G-Nats after two in his stateside debut, which they nearly climbed out of, but fell to the G-Mets, 11-10. Gonzalez was defenestrated for nine runs on 11 hits over an inning and a 2/3rds for the loss. Four relievers combined for seven and a 1/3 innings of two-run relief on four hits and no walks. Jesus Morales doubled twice and scored twice while Jacob Wilson singled twice, walked once, and scored once to lead the G-Nats offense. Roster moves: RHP Pedro Gonzalez reassigned from the DSL; RHP Fausto Seguro on 60-Day DL; OF Jacob Wilson assigned from Syracuse for MiLB rehab; LHP assigned from Potomac for MiLB rehab.
