Buffalo 7 Rochester 4
• Peralta (L, 0-3) 4⅔ IP, 4H, 4R, 3ER, 5BB, 2K, HBP, WP
• Ferrer 1⅓ IP, 2H, 0R, 1BB, 1K, 3-0 IR-S, PTV
• Alu 3-5, R, 2-2B(6), 2RBI
• Baker 1-3, R, 2BB, CS, E
Rochester took a 3-0 with a three-run 3rd but couldn’t get the pitching necessary to make it stand up as the Red Wings were trampled by the Bison, 7-4. Wily Peralta didn’t make it out of the 5th as he was dinged for four runs (three earned) on four hits and five walks while striking out two. Jake Alu picked up where he left off and went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored while Darren Baker reached base three times with a single and two walks to lead the Rochester offense. Roster moves: RHP Tommy Romero stashed on the 3-Day T.I.L.
Erie 18 Harrisburg 8
• Parker (L, 2-3) ⅓ IP, 5H, 8R, 8ER, 3BB, 1K, HR
• Alston 1IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Millas 2-5, 2B, HR, 4RBI, PB
• Casey 2-4, 2R, BB
• Tostado 2-5, 2R, RBI
The Seawolves plundered Mitchell Parker for eight runs in the 1st and cruised to an 18-8 victory. Parker retired just one of nine batters faced as he gave up a two-run HR and five hits total while walking three and fanning one. Garvin Alston was the only pitcher to emerge unscathed as Erie racked up 22 hits total. Drew Millas doubled, homered, and drove in four while connecting for the one Harrisburg (1) hit in seven RISP chances, though the Sens did collect two sacrifice flies. Roster moves: RHP Tyler Beck assigned from Washington (MLFA, released by Wichita on 5/13).
Wilmington 8 Jersey Shore 3
• Lara 3IP, 8H, 3R, 3ER, 1BB, 4K, WP
• Knowles (W, 2-0) 2IP, 1H, 0R, 2BB, 3K
• M. Perez (H, 4) 3IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 3K
• V. Peña 3-4, R, BB, 3B, 2RBI, 2SB
• White 1-3, 2R, BB, HR, 3RBI
• Barley 1-4, R, 2B, 2RBI
Wilmington broke open a one-run game with a four-run 8th to tan Jersey Shore, 8-3 in Game One. Andry Lara reverted to the mean as the BlueClaws pinched him for three runs on eight hits and a walk over three innings. Lucas Knowles (2IP) and Marlon Perez (3IP) combined for five scoreless to earn the win and the hold, respectively. Viandel Peña reached base four times, stole two bases, and drove in the last Blue Rocks runs. T.J. White erased a 3-1 deficit with an Earl Weaver special and scored a run in the 8th to pace the Wilmington offense. Roster moves: C Steven Williams reassigned from Fredericksburg.
Columbia 6 Fredericksburg 4
• Henry 3IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 5K
• Ciuffetelli (BS, 2; L, 0-2) 1IP, 2H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, 3K, HR
• Boissierie 2-4, R, HR, 3RBI, E
• Quintana 3-3, BB, RBI
Cole Henry put the Fireflies in a Mason jar for three innings, allowing just one hit while striking out five. He walked none. The FredNats bullpen, however, was not up to the task of, um, preserving a 4-0 lead as they coughed up six runs—with the “help” of three errors—over the last four innings for a 6-4 loss. Christian Ciuffetelli got the blown-save-loss with a two-run HR in the 8th that made it 5-4. Branden Boissierie drove in three with his third HR and an RBI single while Roismar Quintana led Fredericksburg’s 11-hit parade with three singles. Roster moves: RHP Cole Henry assigned from Rochester for MiLB rehab; C Wilmer Perez reassigned from Wilmington.
