• Bourque 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Hernandez 3-5, R, 2B
• Kieboom 1-3, R, HR, 3RBI
• Noll 1-2, R, HR, RBI
Fresno smacked three homers and got six strong inning from its ace as the “Lowriders,” um, cruised to an 8-1 win to even the series at a 11- and stop a three-game slide. Paolo Espino won his seventh game while giving up the Omaha run on three hits and a walk while striking out five. James Bourque, Derek Self, and Michael Blazek each turned in a scoreless inning to close out the game. Carter Kieboom went yard as did his replacement (no injury indicated in the boxscore, but maybe this?) in the lineup, Jake Noll as well as Wilmer Difo in a 12-hit parade for Fresno.
Reading 2 Harrisburg 1
• Tetreault 5IP, 4H, R, ER, 0BB, 7K, HR
• Guilbeau 2IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 4K
• Condra-Bogan (L, 3-2) 2IP, 1H, R, ER, BB, 0K
• Garcia 1-4, SB
• Sagdal 1-1
Hunter Jones broke up the perfect game with a walk to lead off the 4th, Luis Garcia followed with a single to kiss the no-no bye-bye, and Austin Davidson hit a sac fly to end the shutout. Unfortunately, that was about it for the Senators as they fell to the Phils, 2-1 in the series finale. Jackson Tetreault walked none over five innings and struck out seven while giving up a solo HR and four hits total. The loss went to Jacob Condra-Bogan, who gave up a run on a walk and a double in the 8th.
Roster move: UT Adrián Sanchez recalled to Washington.

A nine-run 8th turned a 4-3 deficit into a 15-4 laugher as Potomac ended the first half with a bang, 15-4. Andrew Lee was charged with all four Woodpeckers runs on three hits and two walks while striking out five. He got a little “help” from Jorge Pantoja who let in both runners he inherited from Lee with a double to the first batter he faced before issuing a walk and then getting the third batter faced to whiff. Aaron Fletcher worked around two singles in the 7th and an error in the 8th to pick up his first High-A win. Nick Banks returned to action with single and a grand slam as he drove in five total while Jakson Reetz reached based five times with three singles and two walks to lead the P-Nats’ 14-hit, nine-walk assault.
