Jefry Rodriguez got the start but was knocked out in the 4th, giving up all three Scranton/Wilkes-Barre runs on five hits and a walk.

Tyler Dyson went the rest of the way, giving up three hits, no walks and striking out five. Jacob Rhinesmith led the Blue Rocks’ hit parade with four singles and three RBI, followed by Kyle Marinconz with two singles, and Omar Meregildo, who doubled, homered, and drove in two.

Salem 14 Fredericksburg 1
• Theophile (L, 0-2) 4IP, 5H, 4R, 2ER, 4BB, 3K, WP
• Stainbrook 1⅔ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 0K, 2-0 IR-S

• Dietrich 1-3, BB
The F-Nats avoided the shutout but not the loss in another defenestration, 14-1 at the hands of the Red Sox. Rodney Theophile got the start and his second loss and he went the first four innings and allowed four runs on five hits and four walks while striking out three. Troy Stainbrook, a 30th Rd. pick from 2019, mopped up with the last five outs on one hit with nary a walk nor a strikeout. Landon Dietrich broke up the perfect game with a walk in the 2nd and the no-hitter with a single to lead off the 7th. A Joe Randa single, a wild pitch, and an error put runners in scoring position for Junior Martina, who grounded out to plate the sole Fredericksburg run in the 8th. Roster moves: 1B Leandro Emiliani placed on 7-Day I.L.; 1B Jackson Coutts recalled from XST.
