Rochester 9 Syracuse 8
• Sharp 3⅔ IP, 4H, 3R, 2ER, 3BB, 1K, WP
• Bonnell (W, 1-0) 1⅔ IP, 2H, 1R, 1ER, BB, 2K

Jake Noll’s 6th-inning grand slam combined with two shutdown innings from Justin Miller powered Rochester past Syracuse for a 9-8 victory – the first back-to-back to wins of the season for the Red Wings. Sterling Sharp’s AAA debut was a rocky one, with three runs (two earned) on four hits and three walks over three and 2/3rds innings. Bryan Bonnell stranded three runners while getting out of the 4th and was the pitcher of record when Rochester took a 5-4 lead in the 5th. Noll racked up six total bases and drove in five runs while Alec Keller singled three times to lead the Red Wings hit column. Roster moves: RHP Kyle McGowin recalled, optioned from Washington.
Bowie 7 Harrisburg 3
• M. Sanchez (L, 0-3) 5IP, 3H, 2R, 2ER, 3BB, 7K, HR, WP
• J. Romero 1IP, 2H, 0R, IBB, 2K
• Dunlap 2-4, R, HR, 2RBI
• Freeman 2-5, R
The BaySox broke open a 2-1 game with a four-run 6th and added an insurance run in the 8th to impeach the Senators, 7-3. Mario Sanchez turned in five innings of two-run ball on three hits (one HR) and three walks while striking out seven, but lost for the third time in four starts. Alex Dunlap homered and drove in two while Cole Freeman singled twice to pace the Harrisburg offense.
Greensboro 2 Wilmington 1
• Dyson 5IP, 0H, 0R, 3BB, 3K, WP, HBP
• Peguero (L, 0-1) 2IP, 3H, R, ER, 2BB, 2K, HR
• Alu 1-4, R, HR, RBI
• Connell 2-4, 2K
• 0-for-11 RISP, 8 LOB
Wilmington’s bullpen couldn’t hold a 1-0 lead as they gave up single runs in the 6th and 7th innings in a 2-1 loss to Greensboro. Tyler Dyson no-hit the Grasshoppers for five innings in his first start of the season, though he did issue three walks and hit a batter. Andrew Karp let in the tying run on a walk, a steal, and a two-out infield single to “earn” a blown save. Francys Peguero took the loss on a solo HR in the 7th but finished the game. The Blue Rocks went 0-for-11 with RISP and left on eight. Jake Alu’s solo HR in the 5th accounted for the lone Wilmington run. The one-run loss was the second of the season for the Blue Rocks after six straight wins in games decided by one run.
Down East 2 Fredericksburg 1
• Seijas 6IP, 3H, R, ER, 2BB, 4K, HR, WP
• González (L, 0-5) 1+ IP, 1H, 1R, 1ER, 1BB, 0K, HR
• Arruda 2-3
• Ydens 1-3, R, HR, RBI
Like the Blue Rocks, the F-Nats ‘pen couldn’t hold a 1-0 lead. Instead, they were walked off on HR by the first Wood Ducks batter in the 9th, 2-1. Karlo Seijas turned in another strong outing, with a run given up on a solo HR and three hits total over six innings. He walked two and struck out four. The loss went to the 20-y.o. Pedro González, who seems to be falling into the same pattern as 2019 – placed a level too high and clearly overmatched – as he gave up the aforementioned game-winning HR for his fifth loss in as many appearances. Jeremy Ydens went deep in the 3rd to tie the game while Jake Arruda singled twice while the rest of the lineup went 2-for-26 with one (1) walk.
