Luis Daniel Mengden tossed two scoreless to earn the hold. Thanks to two sac flies, Blake Rutherford was the beer man in Rochester’s 14-hit parade, led by Erick Mejia with a single and a homer, followed by Jake Alu and Matt Adams, who both went 2-for-4 with a walk and a double. The Red Wings were unusually efficient at 7-for-14 with RISP and left on just six baserunners. Roster moves: UT Jake Noll placed on the 7-Day I.L.

The Senators put on 16 basreunners but could only push across two in a 5-2 loss to the RubberDucks.

The offense got all 11 hits – all singles – with Jacob Young and Trey Lipscomb both going 3-for-5.

• Powell (SV, 1) 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K
• De La Rosa 1-2, R, BB, SF, RBI
Wilmington got it done with smoke, mirrors, and some pretty good pitching to break a seven-game losing streak with a 4-1 win. Andry Lara blanked Brooklyn for five innings on one hit and two walks for his third win. He struck out two. Marlon Perez lost the shutout in the 6th but Carlos Romero put up goose eggs in the 7th and 8th for his third hold and Holden Powell set the side down in order in the 9th for his first save at High-A. Like an ugly stripper, the Blue Rocks had just three singles on the night, scoring runs on an error, a sacrifice fly, a wild pitch, and a fielder’s choice. … while 3B Brady House singled and scored a run, as the A.L. beat the N.L. 5-0 in the 2023 Futures Game in Seattle.
Delmarva 8 Fredericksburg 0

DSL Nationals 8 DSL Rangers Blue 7
• Portorreal 4IP, 7H, 3R, 2ER, 0BB, 2K, WP, PO @ 1B, PO @ 2B
• A. Peña (W, 1-0) 2IP, 0H, 0R, 1BB, 3K, HBP, 2WP
• Obispo 3-4, 3R, 3B, RBI, HBP, SB
• Tavares 2-5, 2B, 3K
• Acevedo 1-3, 2R, 2BB, 3B, RBI, 2SB
In a game that featured 15 runs, 21 hits, 10 walks, eight Robles, six pickoffs, and 20 baserunners left on, why would it be any surprise that the D-Nats somehow emerged as an 8-7 winner? The DSL Rangers Blue actually led this one 6-1 halfway through, but the DSL Nationals bullpen righted itself with three scoreless innings, the last two thrown by Angel Peña for his first pro win. Juan Obispo led the D-Nats attack with two singles, three runs, a triple, an RBI, an HBP, and a stolen base, followed by Andy Acedvedo with a single, two walks, a triple, and two stolen bases.
