Cole Henry emerged from witness protection (OK, fin; the FCL) and made his first appearance for the Blue Rocks with four scoreless innings. He gave up two hits, walked one, and struck out six while picking up his second win.

Michael Cuevas dropped his third straight decision as he was charged with all three Carolina runs on six hits and three walks. He struck out four in his seventh loss. Bryan Peña let in both inherited runners with the aforementioned double while closing out the 5th. Jacob Young led off with a double, took third on the first of two singles by Darren Baker, and scored the lone Fredericksburg run on a groundout by Branden Boisserie. The F-Nats mustered just four hits total and drew three walks, leaving on six baserunners.
