• Lindsly 2-4, R, 2B
• Martin 2-5, OF assist @ 2B, E
Luis Reyes turned in his best performance since 2017 but was let down both on both offense and defense in Harrisburg’s 2-1 loss to Akron. Reyes gave up both runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks (one intentional) and struck out five. With runners on first and second and two out, Rudy Martin loaded up on a single to right for an apparent throw home but instead lost the handle and spiked it into the outfield grass, enabling both runs to score. He would get his shot at redemption (but no photo opportunity) with the tying run on second and two out in the 9th but struck to end the game. Gilbert Lara drove in Brady Lindsly for the Sens’ one run, cashing in the one extra-base hit with the one hit in nine RISP chances.
Jersey Shore 2 Wilmington 0 – COMP.

Jeisel Acosta drove in three with his first pro HR while Elisel Santana and Armando Cruz both went 2-for-3 with walk, a run scored, and a caught stealing.
DSL Nationals 3 DSL Giants Orange 0

Two D-Nats pitchers shut out the D-Giants Orange, 3-0, on two hits. Randy Lara fell an out shy of qualifying for the “W,” presumably hitting his pitch limited while giving up both DGO hits, issuing two walks, and setting down seven on strikes. Ronni Montero walked one and struck out three while finishing the game. Cristhian Vaquero singled twice, walked once, and stole his eighth base while Dawry Martinez went yard for the first time to lead the D-Nats attack, which was unable to make the most of the ten (10) walks drawn.
