audition for a callup close out the game. Luis García doubled, tripled, and drove in three as did Josh Palacious with his fourth HR, which capped off the Rochester scoring binge.

Harrisburg homered twice to edge Portland again by a single run and split the six-game series. Steven Fuentes labored through five innings, throwing 68 pitches (48 for strikes) but allowed just the one run on five hits and a walk while striking out three. It was his first win since July 27, 2019. Three relievers combined for four scoreless, with Kody Clemmer and Matt Cronin both picking up a hold, and Matt Brill working around a two-out double for his 5th save. Offensively, the Sens managed just three hits total with Jacob Rhinesmith adding a single and drawing the home team’s only walk.

Seth Shuman let in the sole Ironbirds run on a home run and two hits total over five innings. He walked two and struck out six. Lucas Knowles blanked Aberdeen for three innings, racking up five K’s against no walks and two hits. Zach Brzykcy high-wired through the 9th, loading the bases with one out on two singles and a walk before getting a flyball just shallow enough to RF to keep the runner on 3rd for the second out and strikeout to end the game and earn the save.
