Raquet pitched into the 7th and gave up the first Fayetteville run on five hits and two walks while fanning seven. Andrew Istler stranded a runner while getting four outs across the 7th and 8th innings but left with a runner on third and one down in favor of Jhonatan German, who issued a double to the first batter he faced and two hits total while finishing the 8th.

• Daily 2-4, R, RBI
• Rhinesmith 2-5, 2R, 2B, HR, 3RBI
Hagerstown completed its just its second sweep of the season as they left Lakewood as the winners of three straight after 10-5 victory. Joan Adon got his seventh “W” with five innings of one-run ball on four hit, no walks, and four strikeouts. Powered by home runs by Phil Caulfield and Jacob Rhinesmith, who combined for four hits and seven RBI total, the Suns offense racked up 10 runs. It was enough to withstand subpar pitching by Ryan Williamson and O.T. Turner, who combined to cough up four runs over the last four innings.
Lowell 3 Auburn 2

• McMahan (L, 0-2) 1⅓ IP, 1H, 1R, 1ER, 0BB, 0K

• Carrillo 2-3, 2R, BB, HR, RBI
The Doubledays led this one twice, 1-0 and 2-1, but couldn’t cash in on their 12 hits as they lost, 3-2.

The loss went to Pearson McMahan in the bottom of the 9th on a triple and a sacrifice fly. Eric Senior led the Auburn hit column with three singles and an RBI while Adalberto Carrillo smacked his second HR. The Doubledays went just 2-for-13 with RISP and hit into four double plays.
