Alex Troop’s return from
being hidden for roster purposes the Development list was a rocky one that saw him knocked from the box and ejected in the second inning as Erie took another one from Harrisburg, 9-5. The 26-y.o. southpaw was strafed for five runs on five hits and two walks over an inning and a 2/3rds to suffer his fifth loss of ’23. The Senators made the most of their five hits and seven walks, highlighted by Trey Lipscomb’s two-run HR in the 2nd and James Wood’s two-run single in the 8th. Roster moves: LHP Alex Troop reinstated from Development List; LHP Dustin Saenz placed on the Development List.
Jersey 16 Wilmington 5
• A. Lara (L, 1-5) 4+ IP, 7H, 7R, 5ER, 2BB, 2K, HR, HBP
• Yankosky 2IP, 1H, 0R, 1BB, 1K
• White 3-4, R, RBI, 2E(9)
• Suggs 2-4, 2R, 2B(5)
• V. Peña 1-3, 2R, BB
Andry Lara’s struggles continue as the 20-y.o. was boiled by the BlueClaws for seven runs in a 16-5 smackdown. Lara gave up seven hits (one HR), one Robles, and two walks over four-plus innings. He struck out two while taking his fifth loss. Tyler Yankosky was the sole Wilmington reliever to keep Jersey Shore off the board with two scoreless innings. T.J. White singled three times and scored one while Matt Suggs singled, doubled, and scored twice to lead the Blue Rocks offense. Roster moves: OF Yasel Antuna activated from the Development List.
Myrtle Beach 1 Fredericksburg 0
• Caceres 5IP, 2H, 0R, 4BB, 5K, 2WP
• P. González (L, 3-2) 2IP, 2H, 1R, 1ER, 1BB, 0K, PO @ 1B
• Pettigrew 2-3, CS
• Infante 1-3, BB, E(8)
Fredericksburg outhit Myrtle Beach, 5-4 but two bad throws did them in for a 1-0 loss. Striking out 15 times didn’t help, either. Bryan Caceres walked four but gave up just two hits over five shutout innings. The Pelicans got a one-out walk and put the runner in motion for a hit-and-run. Johnathan Thomas charged and came up throwing but the throw sailed such that the 5’11” (maybe) Paul Witt had to jump, land, and apply the tag. The call didn’t go the way of the FredNats. Fredericksburg pulled the infield in and got a tapper to first but Roismar Quintana’s throw was in the dirt, enabling the lone run to score. Pedro González took the loss, his second. Zion Pettigrew led the FredNats’ hit column with two singles. Roster moves: RHP Bryan Sanchez placed on the 7-Day I.L.
FCL Nationals 6 FCL Mets 5 – COMP.
• N. Gomez (W, 2-0) 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• M. Diaz (SV, 1) 2IP, 0H, 0R, 1BB, 1K
• Klassen 1-2, R, BB SF, 2RBI
The F-Nats scored the decisive run just as you might expect from a game in the complexes: a walk, a hit-by-pitch, a sacrifice and a wild pitch. The rally made a winner out of Niomar Gomez’s scoreless top of the 7th on Tuesday. Moises Diaz then tossed two scoreless for the save.
FCL Mets 4 FCL Nationals 0
• Tolman (L, 0-1) 3IP, 2H, 2R, 1ER, 4BB, 4K, HBP

• Klassen 2-3
• Cooper 1-2, E
In the regularly scheduled game, the FCL Mets shut out the FCL Nationals, 4-0 on four hits. 24-y.o.
