Sterling Sharp went the first four innings and let in two runs on five hits (one HR) and two walks. He struck out three and hit a batter. The win was credited to Tyler Clippard despite allowing an inherited runner to score while Jordan Weems gave up both of his inherited runners while closing out the 9th to notch his sixth save.

He struck out four while losing his third game. Jack Dunn broke up the shutout bid with a two-run single in the 8th – the fourth and final hit of the night for Harrisburg.

Carlos Romero stranded two in the 7th but let in three in the 8th for the blown-save-loss.

The FredNats got an early field goal in the 1st, a touchdown and an extra point in the 7th, and a safety in the 8th as they pummeled the Red Sox, 12-1 to stop a three-game losing streak. Rodney Theophile became the first starter in the minors to win four games with five and 1/3rd scoreless innings, three hits and two walks allowed, and four whiffs. Andry Arias was a triple shy of the cycle while driving four and scoring twice while Jeremy De La Rosa singled three times, scored twice, and stole two bases to lead Fredericksburg’s 16-hit parade. Sorry, boys, no beers – both Yoander Rivero and Steven Williams went hitless.
