The Chiefs reverted to form with a walk-off loss in the 9th. Carlos Torres issued leadoff walk followed by a single to put runners on first and third with nobody out. An intentional walk was issued to set up a force at any base. An unintentional walk followed to give the RailRiders a 2-1 win. Kyle McGowin once again pitched well—one run on six hits over seven innings with six whiffs and no walks—and once again was rewarded with a no-decision. Syracuse collected four hits and one (1) walk on offense with Jose “Orange” Marmolejos doubling in Victor Robles in the 7th to break up the shutout.

Carter Kieboom’s two-run double capped a three-run, walkoff 9th as Harrisburg extended its winning streak to four with a 5-4 win over Erie. Bryan Harper, who let in one of two inherited runners in the 8th but pitched a scoreless 9th, picked up the win in relief. Logan Darnell got the start and put in five innings of three-run ball on eight hits and two walks while striking out four. Drew Ward, Osvaldo Abreu, and Alec Keller each had two hits, with Ward smacking his 12th home run.

Joan Baez pitched seven strong innings without issuing a walk or a run as he combined with Taylor Guilbeau on a five-hit, 6-0 shutout of the Keys – the sixth win in the last seven games for the P-Nats. Baez struck out five and got the benefit of four double plays, starting with a strike-’em-out-throw-’em-out number to end the 1st and three 4-6-3 DPs to end the 3rd, 6th, and 7th innings. Bryan Mejia got the first and last RBIs of the night with leadoff HR in the 1st and an RBI single in the 8th as he, Andruw Monsaterio, and Aldrem Corredor each had two hits to lead the Potomac offense.

Bond villain West Virginia starter Sergio Cubilete but couldn’t get a clutch hit all night as they went 0-for-8 with RISP and had just five hits total. Armond Upshaw prevented the shutout with a two-out solo HR in the 7th.

The Crosscutters took a 6-1 lead with a five-run top of the 4th before rain halted play. Presumably, they will finish this one then play a seven-inning game afterwards tonight.
