Starter Patrick Murphy bore the brunt of the beating by the Mets, giving up six runs on five hits and three walks over two and 2/3rds innings. The win went to Luis Avilán with four outs in the middle innings with two hits and a walk allowed.

Harrisburg 6 Akron 5 (10 inn.)
• Troop 5⅔ IP, 4H, 2R, 2ER, 4BB, 2K
• Ferrer (BS, 2) 1⅔ IP, 3H, 1R, 1ER, 0BB, 3K, HR
• Brzykcy (W, 2-0) 2IP, 1H, 1R, 0ER, IBB, 4K
• Meregildo 1-1, R, HR, SF, 3RBI, 2BB
• Cluff 2-4, R, 2B
• Baker 2-6, R, 2-2B, 2RBI
Darren Baker’s two-run double in the bottom of the 10th turned a would-be 5-4 loss into a 6-5 walkoff win for the Senators. Alex Troop kept the ball in the yard for the first time in four starts, with two runs let in on four hits and four walks over five and 2/3rds innings. Jose Ferrer continues to struggle at AA, allowing an inherited runner to score in the 7th to saddle Andrew Lee with a blown save, and then doing it for himself with a leadoff HR in the 8th. Omar Meregildo drove in the first three runs with his 6th AA HR (21st overall) and a sac fly. Baker also doubled in the 7th and scored on a wild pitch. Harrisburg drew nine walks but Baker’s gamewinner was just the third hit in 14 RISP chances.
Hudson Valley 3 Wilmington 1
• Parker 4IP, 4H, 0R, 3BB, 5K, WP
• Ribalta (BS, 1;L, 0-1) 1IP, 3H, 3R, 3ER, 1BB, 1K, WP
• V. Peña 2-3
• Emiliani 1-4
Wilmington pushed across an unearned run in the 1st and for six innings it looked like it might just hold up. Mitchell Parker went the first four and put on seven baserunners while fanning five. Carlos Romero put up two goose eggs with one hit and four whiffs. Alas, Orlando Ribalta couldn’t keep the string of zeroes atop the Frawley stadium scoreboard going as he was dinged for all three Hudson Valley runs in the 7th. Viandel Peña led off the 9th with his second single (third overall) but was erased by a double play. Leandro Emiliani, who led off the 7th with a single, grounded out to end the game.
Fredericksburg 10 Salem 8

The FredNats held off a late charge by the S-Sox as they took their fourth straight, 10-8. Jarlin Susana struck out six over the first four innings, giving up one run on one hit (not a HR) and one walk. Tyler Schoff was credited with the win despite coughing up three runs over two innings. Brendan Collins came on with two out in the 8th and a runner on first and got a flyout to end the Salem rally, then set the side down in order in the 9th for his first save. Branden Bosserie singled, homered, and drove in three while Jared McKenzie singled, doubled, scored twice, drove in two, stole a base, and cut down a runner at 3rd to lead the Fredericksburg offense.
Roster moves: SS Armando Cruz reassigned from the FCL; SS Cortland Lawson placed on the 3-Day TIL; LHP Bryan Peña activated from the Developmental List; RHP Cody Greenhill placed on the Developmental List.
