Fresno – ALL STAR BREAK
Tonight, the I.L. takes on the P.C.L. in El Paso with Fresno’s Yadiel Hernandez expected to start as the DH and Dakota Bacus to be available in the ‘pen.
Harrisburg – ALL STAR BREAK
Likewise, the players selected by “the coaches” will converge in Richmond. Tres Barrera, Ian Sagdal, and Rhett Wiseman are likely to come off the bench while Aaron Barrett will regale his fellow relievers in the ‘pen about what it was like to be in the minors before everybody had smartphones.
Potomac 7 Fayetteville 6 (10 inn.)
• Raquet 5IP, 5H, 4R, 4ER, 2BB, 3K, 2HR, HBP
• Bartow (W, 1-2) 1IP, 0H, 0R, BB, K
• Freeman 3-5, R, 2B, RBI
• Meregildo 2-4
• Banks 1-3, 2R, 2B, 2BB, RBI
Jakson Reetz delivered a two-out, two-run, game-tying single in the 9th to enable Potomac to walk off in the 10th, 7-6 and sweep the rain-shortened series. Nick Raquet went the first five and gave up four runs on five hits, including two homers, while walking two and fanning three. Cole Freeman reached base three times with two singles and a double as did Nick Banks with a double and two walks; both drove in one to lead the P-Nats attack.
Roster moves: Sources are telling us that Nick Banks will not make the trip to the Redneck Riviera tonight but will instead head to City Island tomorrow.
Lexington 7 Hagerstown 5
• Peguero (L, 2-7) 5IP, 5H, 3R, 2ER, BB, 2K, HR
• Troop 3⅓ IP, 7H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 2K, 2-1 IR-S
• Rhinesmith 1-3, 2R, BB, HR, RBI
• Connell 1-4, 2R, 3B, RBI
• Vickers 1-3
As they usually do, errors and unearned runs proved to be the difference as the Legends took the opener from the Suns, 7-5. Francys Peguero lost this one on his own with three runs (two earned) on five hits (one HR) and a walk over five innings. Justin Miller was charged with two unearned runs after two-out triple was followed by an error. After hitting his pitch count, Alex Troop was summoned to get the last out and he did, but not before an infield pop was allowed to drop for another unearned run to put the Suns into a 5-2 hole. Hagerstown got one back in the 7th and two in the 9th before Jackson Cluff struck out with the bases loaded.
Roster moves: RHP Francys Peguero, OF Armond Upshaw, IF Trey Vickers activated from 7-Day I.L.; LHP Jackson Stoeckinger placed on the 3-Day T.I.L.; RHP Justin Miller reassigned from the GCL for MLB rehab.
West Virginia 10 Auburn 9 (12 inn.)

• Masters 2-3, 3R, 2B, HR, 2RBI
• Jo. Sanchez 2-6
• Peroni 2-6, R
Like the president with a four-piece jigsaw puzzle, this took more than five hours to complete as the Doubledays fell in 12 innings, 10-9. Jackson Rutledge continues to “work on stuff” as the Black Bears savaged him for three runs on three hits and two walks over two innings. One team or the other scored in eleven innings, with the two teams combining for 24 walks (four intentional) and 21 hits, with ten of the 19 runs being earned. Pearson McMahan, Fausto Segura, and Evan Lee each notched a blown save, with Lee taking the loss. Jose Sanchez and Anthony Peroni led the regulars with two hits apiece as Auburn collected ten total.
