Las Vegas 9 Fresno 7
• Nuño 2IP, 4H, 4R, 4ER, 2BB, 1K, HR, PO
• Dragmire (L, 0-3) ⅔ IP, 4H, 5R, 5ER, 2BB, 0K
• Kieboom 2-3, R, 2BB, 2RBI
• Gushue 2-4, RBI
• Hernandez 1-4, R, HR, 2RBI
Fresno blew leads of 2-0 and 5-4 as Las Vegas left with a 9-7 win to split the four-game series. Vidal Nuño3 was the opener and helped warm up the Aviators bats with four runs allowed on four hits and two walks over two innings. Brady Dragmire retired just two batters out of eight faced as he let in five runs on four hits and two walks with nary a whiff except the stink of his third loss. Veteran relievers Jordan Mills, Derek Self, and Dakota Bacus combined for 6⅓ scoreless innings of relief to give the Grizzlies a chance to catch up, but they could only muster single runs in the 5th and 9th. Carter Kieboom singled twice, walked twice, and drove in two while Taylor Gushue went 2-for-4 with an RBI to lead the Fresno offense. Roster moves: RHP Austin Adam optioned from Washington; IF Jake Noll recalled to Washington; LHP Jordan Mills reassigned from Harrisburg.
Harrisburg 1 Altoona 0
• Crowe 7IP, 5H, 0R, 0BB, 7K
• Baez (W, 2-0) 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Barrett (SV, 4) 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Taylor 1-3, R, HR, RBI, OF assist at 2B
• Goeddel 1-3, 2B
Chuck Taylor’s solo HR to lead off the 8th was enough for the Sens to straighten the Curve for six-hit, 1-0 shutout. Wil Crowe turned in a career-best night of seven shutout innings on five hits and no walks while fanning seven. Alas, it was a no-decison for Crowe as the win went to Joan Baez, who retired the side in the 8th on 10 pitches while Aaron Barrett worked around a two-out single in the 9th to register his fourth save. Tyler Goeddel and Ian Sagdal both doubled while Drew Ward singled to comprise the four-hit, no-walk offense. Roster move: LHP Dan Jennings assigned from XST.
Potomac – OFF DAY
Fourth-place Potomac returns to action tonight for the first of three against last-place Salem.

Tim Cate finally got his first Low-A win in start #8 (fourth this season) as he shut out Greenville for six innings on four hits and a walk while fanning seven. KJ Harrison continued his assault on Sally Lg. pitching (1.229 OPS) with two doubles and two RBI while Gilbert Lara singled, tripled, scored twice, and also drove in two to power the Hagerstown offense.
