Fresno 4 Sacramento 3 (10 inn.)
• Espino 7IP, 9H, 3R, 3ER, 3BB, 8K
• Ondrusek (W, 1-0) 3IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Snyder 2-4, R, HR(10), RBI

• Hernandez 1-4, 2B, OF assist at HP
Fresno rallied to tie in the 8th and win in the 10th without an RBI hit as the Grizzlies took the series finale, 4-3. Paolo Espino notched his fourth quality stat with all three Sacramento runs allowed on nine hits and three walks. He struck out eight but came away with a no-decision. Logan Ondrusek allowed just one hit over the final three innings and picked up his first win of 2019. The Grizzlies were held to just five hits, with none through the first three inning until Carter Kieboom’s 7th big fly broke up the no-no and ended the shutout. Brandon Snyder also went deep (#10) and singled while Yadiel Hernandez and Collin Cowgill, who scored both the tying and winning runs, added doubles.
Roster move: OF Andrew Stevenson assigned from Washington for MLB rehab.
Harrisburg – OFF DAY
The Senators resume their eight-day, seven-game road trip with three against the RubberDucks in Akron. Despite dropping three of four to second-place Altoona, Harrisburg still leads the E.L. West by seven games with less than a month to go (second half starts June 19).
Down East 14 Potomac 2
• M. Peña (L, 2-3) 3IP, 7H, 8R, 6ER, BB, 4K, 2HR
• Reyes 3IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Freeman 2-3, R, 2-2B, BB
• Dunlap 1-3, R
Potomac gave up a touchdown and an extra point in the 1st and could only muster a safety in a 14-2 loss to Down East. Malvin Peña’s longball woes continues with two more (five this month, six this season) as the Wood Ducks bit him for eight runs total (six earned) on seven hits and a walk over just three innings. Jeremy McKinney followed Peña and was no relief as Down East knocked him for one longball and six runs on six hits and three walks over just two. Luis Reyes, who earlier this season looked like he couldn’t get three shutout innings unless he was pitching against the parent club, did it for the second straight outing to save the ‘pen. Cole Freeman doubled twice while Alex Dunlap and Aldrem Corredor each singled once to account for the four P-Nats hits.
Roster move: LHP Tony Sipp MLB rehab assignment ended.
Hickory 9 Hagerstown 7
• Cate 6IP, 8H, 5R, 5ER, 0BB, 5K, PO at 1B
• Fletcher (L, 1-3) 1IP, 3H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, 0K
• Vickers 2-4, R, 2B, RBI
• Mendez 1-2, R, 3BB
• Pineda 2-5, R, 2B
The Suns rallied from 4-0 and 5-3 down to take a 6-5 lead but the ‘pen couldn’t get a goose egg in the late innings as they dropped the finale to the Crawdads, 9-7. Tim Cate’s streak of quality starts ended at six but he still went six, giving up the first five Hickory runs on eight hits and no walks. The loss went to Aaron Fletcher with two runs on three hits in the 9th. Ricardo Mendez took three of the eight Suns walks while Trey Vickers and Israel Pineda collected four of the eight hits, but the bevy of baserunners was negated four double plays.
