Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 6 Rochester 5
• Ureña 6IP, 6H, 4R, 3ER, 0BB, 3K, 3HR
• G. Moreno (L, 1-1) 2IP, 1H, 1R, 1ER, 0BB, 1K, HR
• Mazara 3-4, R, 2B(5), HR(5), 2RBI
• Alu 2-3, R, 2BB, 2B, RBI, SB
• Hill 2-5, 2R, SB(10)
The longball was the undoing for the Red Wings as a solo shot in the 9th – the fourth on the night for the RailRiders – broke a 5-5 tie and sent Rochester to a 6-5 loss. José Ureña pitched six full innings for the third straight start, giving up four runs (three earned) on six hits (three HR), no walks, and three whiffs. He rewarded with another no-decision. Gerson Moreno took the loss on the one hit and run he allowed over two innings. Nomar Mazara singled, doubled, homered, and drove in two, including the one hit in nine RISP chances. Jake Alu extended his hit streak to six games with two singles while drawing two walks. Roster moves: OF Alex Call optioned from Washington; OF Victor Robles MLB rehab ended; LHP Alberto Baldonado placed on 3-Day T.I.L., retroactive to June 15; RHP Andrés Machado placed on 3-Day T.I.L.
Erie 6 Harrisburg 1
• Henry (L, 0-2) 2⅔ IP, 5H, 4R, 4ER, 2BB, 3K, HR, HBP
• Alston 3⅓ IP, 1H, 0R, 1BB, 4K, WP, 2-0 IR-S, E
• Lipscomb 3-4
• Rutherford 1-3, BB, RBI
• 1-10 RISP, 7 LOB
Harrisburg barely avoided a shutout in a 6-1 loss to Erie. Cole Henry’s second AA start of ’23 wasn’t any better than his first as the SeaWolves plundered him for a three-run HR and four runs overall on five hits and two walks over two and 2/3rds innings. He walked two and struck out three. Garvin Alston stranded two and tossed three scoreless to keep things close, but the offense sputtered through the first eight innings. James Wood led off the 9th with a triple and trotted in Blake Rutherford’s single. Trey Lipscomb collected a third safety to put runners on 1st and 2nd but neither Rutherford nor Lipscomb would advance as the next three batters went down in order.
Wilmington 8 Jersey Shore 5 (10 inn.)
• M. Perez 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Peterson (BS, 1) 1⅓ IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 2K, 1-1 IR-S
• C. Romero 2IP, 1H, 2R, 0ER, 2BB, 3K
• De La Rosa 3-4, R, BB, 3RBI
• Antuna 2-4, R, RBI
• Emiliani 1-5, R, HR, 3RBI
Leandro Emiliani’s Earl Weaver special capped off a five-run bottom of the 10th for an 8-5 Blue Rocks win over the BlueClaws. Marlon Perez was the opener and tossed two scoreless before Chance Huff came on as he did on Sunday. Jersey Shore tied it up in the 7th with the help of two wild pitches, a hit batsman, and an error. In the 10th, José Sánchez did his best imitation of a croquet wicket to turn a might-have-been double play into a 4-3 deficit. The next batter hit one too deep in the 3-4 hole to get more than one out, allowing the Blue Claws to go up 5-3.
Jersey Shore returned the favor in the bottom of the 10th with a two-out wild pitch that put Will Frizzell on second base, which is the baserunning equivalent of pulling in the infielders in, as it enabled Frizzell to take off on contact and score on a single that fell in front of the left fielder playing no-doubles-deep against Jeremy De La Rosa. After Matt Suggs was hit by a pitch, Emiliani needed only a base hit to the outfield to score De La Rosa but took that out of the equation with a ball that left Frawley Stadium for the walk-off HR.
Fredericksburg 2 Myrtle Beach 0
• Susana 4IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Rodriguez (W, 1-0) 3IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 5K
• Powell (SV, 1) 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• Lile 1-3, 2R, HR(5), RBI, SB
• Green 1-4, RBI
Three Fredericksburg pitchers combined to shut out Myrtle Beach, 2-0 on three hits and no walks. Jarlin Susana dominated the Pelicans for (his usual no matter how few pitches thrown) four innings, allowing two hits and striking out one. Kevin Rodriguez picked up the win with three innings of one-hit ball while setting down five on strikes. Holden Powell retired the last six batters in order to pick up the save. Daylen Lile homered to break the 0-0 tie and scored on Elijah Green’s RBI single in the 8th.
FCL Marlins 13 FCL Nationals 12
• Leon 2IP, 3H, 3R, 3ER, 1BB, 3K,
• Carmona (L, 0-1) 1⅔ IP, 3H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, 2K, HBP
• Ulloa (BS, 1) 1BF, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 0K, 2-2 IR-S

• Geralso 3-5, 3R, 3B
• Ochoa Leyva 2-2, 2R, 2B
• Klassen 2-4, R, BB, 2-2B, 2RBI
The F-Nats rallied for five in the top of the 9th to take a 12-11 lead, but the F-Marlins answered with a two-out, two-run, bases-loaded double to win, 13-12. Jeffrem Leon got the start but was hooked for three runs on three hits and a walk over two innings. The FCL Nationals took leads of 4-3 and 5-4 before falling behind 11-6. Offense came cheaply for both teams as they combined for 31 hits and nine walks. Just two pitchers did not give up a run and both pitched a 1/3rd of an inning. The loss went to Josue Carmona with an “assist” from Jose Ulloa, who gave up a double to the first and only batter he faced.
