Rochester 7 Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 4
• Rainey ⅔ IP, 1H, R, ER, 2BB, 2K
• Rogers (W, 5-5) 4⅓ IP, 4H, 3R, 3ER, BB, 2K, HR, 2-0 IR-S

The Red Wings got six runs from four homers as they derailed the RailRiders, 7-4 in the series finale. After Tanner Rainey “worked on some stuff,” walking two and fanning two while letting in a run, Josh Rogers stranded two while finishing the 1st and threw four more innings, allowing three runs on four hits (one HR) to earn his fifth win. Nick Wells (2IP), Aaron Barrett (1IP), and Gabe Klobosits combined for four scoreless innings for the holds and the save, respectively. Carlos Tocci reached base three times with a homer, walk, and a single to lead the Rochester hit column. Roster moves: RHP Tanner Rainey assigned from Washington for MLB Rehab.

Harrisburg rallied for two in the 9th to tie it at 5-5 but saw the game end in the 10th with a single to the first batter for a 6-5 walkoff loss to Portland. Jackson Tetreault made his first AA start since Aug 13, 2019, and was knocked around for the first five runs on seven hits (three HRs) and a walk over five and a 1/3rd innings. Carson Teel, Reid Schaller, and Malvin Peña shut down the Sea Dogs through regulation for three and 2/3rds scoreless with seven strikeouts. Rhett Wiseman’s one-out, two-run double plated the tying runs in the 9th, completing a comeback from as far down as three runs (4-1). Jhon Romero took the loss on a single to the only batter he faced for his second loss and the Senators’ seventh loss in extra innings. Roster moves: C Brady Lindlsy activated from 7-Day I.L.; IF Kyle Marincon placed on 7-Day I.L.; RHP Carlos Navas assigned from Washington (MLFA).
Brooklyn 5 Wilmington 4
• Peterson ⅔ IP, 5H, 4R, 3ER, 0BB, 0K, 37-28 PIT-K
• Karp 3⅓ IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 4K, 2-0 IR-S
• Hinton (L, 0-2) ⅔ IP, 1H, 1R, 1ER, 2BB, 1K
• Ydens 2-3, R, HR, BB, RBI
• Antuna 2-4, 2B (nope, .197)
SSDL as the Blue Rocks fell behind early, came back to tie, and then lost in the bottom of the 9th, 5-4 – the ninths straight loss for Wilmington. Todd Peterson was a Sunday-morning replacement for Evan Lee and was blown away by the Cyclones for four runs on five hits over just 2/3rds of an inning. Led by Andrew Karp, the Wilmington bullpen blanked Brooklyn from innings two through eight. This enabled the Blue Rocks to chip away with single runs in the 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 7th to tie the game at 4-4, including HRs by Jeremy Ydens and Jack Dunn (both solo shots). The longballs continued to mask the lack of clutch hitting as Wilmington went 0-for-10 with RISP and left on eight, including the go-ahead runner on 3rd in the 8th. Kyle Hinton took the loss with a run on a walk, a steal, an IBB, and a two-out single.
Salem 3 Fredericksburg 0
• Cuevas (L, 0-3) 6IP, 4H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 3K, HR
• Yankosky 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Strohschein 2-3
• 0-for-6 RISP, 5 LOB
Three Salem pitchers combined on four-hit, 3-0 shutout of Fredericksburg to take the series, 5-1. Michael Cuevas turned in his first quality start of the season, allowing two runs on four hits (one HR) and a walk while striking out three. He was rewarded with his third loss. Kevin Strohschein singled twice while Viandel Peña and José Sánchez both singled once to comprise the F-Nats offense, which drew no walks and fanned 12 times. Despite a league-worst 175-run* differential, it was just the third time the offense had been shut out this season.
* The 16-56 Visalia Rawhide of the Low-A West are at -219 runs, so no “hold my beer” jokes.
FCL Nationals (7-9, 4th FCL East, 3GB)

A loss on Saturday dropped the D-Nats into a three-way tie with the D-Rockies and the D-Mets1. This week it’s two against D-Rockies today and tomorrow, an off day on Wednesday, then three against the D-Angels (away-home-away) to close out the week.
