Memphis 5 Fresno 3
• Crowe (L, 0-2) 6IP, 5H, 5R, 4ER, 2BB, 6K, 2HR
• Kontos 2IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 2K
• C. Kieboom 2-3, R, 2BB
• Y. Hernandez 1-3, R, BB, HR(25), RBI
Fresno never led in this one, giving up two in the 1st and a picket fence in 3rd, 4th, and 5th to lose its sixth straight, 5-3. Wil Crowe was charged with all five Memphis runs on five hits, including two HR, and two walks over six innings. He struck out six while losing his second AAA game. George Kontos (2IP) and Dakota Bacus (1IP) combined for three scoreless to keep things close, but the Grizzlies couldn’t rally. Yadiel Hernandez smacked his 25th HR and drew a walk while Carter Kieboom walked twice, singled twice, and scored a run to lead the Fresno offense.
Trenton 7 Harrisburg 5
• McGowan 5+ IP, 4H, 4R, 4ER, 2BB, 10K, HR
• Bonnell (BS, 2;L, 2-4) ⅓ IP, 4H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 0K, HR, 2-2 IR-S
• Sagdal 1-3, R, 2BB
• S. Kieboom 1-3, R, BB
• Masters 1-4, R, HR, 2RBI
A 5-1 Senators lead disappeared over the course of two innings as the Thunder struck for one in the 5th and five in the 6th to take the series finale, 7-5. Kevin McGowan struck out a career-high of 10 over five-plus innings, but gave up four runs on four hits (one HR). Bryan Bonnell imploded for the second straight appearance, as he retired only the first batter he faced on a sac fly then served up a single, a homer, a double, and another double before departing with the blown-save-loss. Harrisburg scored five times on six hits with the help of seven walks and the offense was highlighted by David Masters’s two-run HR in the 4th, his first at AA.
Lynchburg 1 Potomac 0
• Teel (L, 6-3) 6IP, 5H, R, ER, 2BB, 5K
• Bartow 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Corredor 2-4, 2B
• Meregildo 1-2, HBP
Lynchburg completed the sweep of Potomac with a 1-0 shutout on six hits. Carson Teel took the hard-luck loss, with the one run allowed on five hits and two walks over six innings. Gabe Klobosits followed with two scoreless innings and Frankie Bartow pitched a 1-2-3 ninth. Aldrem Corredor (double, single), Austin Davidson (single, walk), and Omar Meregildo (single, HBP) were the only P-Nats batters to reach base twice while the rest of the lineup went 2-for-22. Potomac had just three RISP opportunities and no hits in them as six runners were left on, including the tying run in both the 8th and 9th innings.
Lexington 2 Hagerstown 1
• Alastre (L, 4-12) 5IP, 6H, 2R, 2ER, 2BB, 4K, HR
• Troop 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Connell 2-4
• Mendoza 1-3, R, BB, HR, RBI
The Suns avoided the shutout but dropped the finale 2-1 to the Legends. Tomas Alastre lost his 12th game while throwing five innings of two-run ball on six hits and two walks and striking out four. Alfonso Hernandez put up one goose egg and Alex Troop two to keep things close. The Hagerstown offense was held to one run on Drew Mendoza’s third homer and six hits total. Justin Connell was the sole Hagerstown batter to collect two hits while Mendoza drew the Suns’ only walk.
Auburn 7 West Virginia 2

Auburn got two in the 3rd and three in the 4th to cruise to a 7-2 win in the opener against West Virginia, stopping a three-game losing streak. Evan Lee won his first game as a starter, third overall, as he held the Black Bears to a run on four hits and two walks over five innings while setting down six on strikes. Gilberto Chu went the rest of the way with four innings of one-run ball on four hits and three walks for the save. J.T. Arruda came off the bench after pinch-running for Jose Sanchez (left the game after getting hit by a pitch) to single twice and drive in three while Jake Alu tripled in two and walked once to lead the Doubledays offense.
