A tense pitcher’s duel ended on a botched sacrifice as Scranton/Wilkes-Barre threw this one way for a 2-1 Rochester win. Jackson Rutledge went five scoreless innings with two hits, three walks, and seven whiffs. Tim Cate, the fifth reliever out of the ‘pen, picked up his first AAA win with a 1-2-3 tenth.

Hudson Valley got to Andry Lara for two in the top of the 1st and then were shut down and out as Wilmington won for the seventh time in eight games, 3-2. Lara went five full innings and allowed six hits and a walk while striking out two for his sixth win. Dannel Díaz and Carlos Romero both turned in two scoreless to earn the hold and save, respectively.

• Emiliani 2-4, 2B, E
• Vaquero 1-4, BB, E
An eight-run 3rd put this one away early as the Hillcats disemboweled the FredNats, 13-1. This was not a bowl of Life cereal for Mikey Tepper, who prolly didn’t like giving up eight runs on six hits and two walks over two and a 1/3rd innings for his second loss in as many starts. Leandro Emiliani had the sole extra-base hit as he went 2-for-4 with a double while Cristhian Vaquero and Marcus Brown both walked and singled to pace the seven-hit, five-walk offense. Roster moves: RHPs Austin Amaral, Mason Denaburg placed on the 7-Day I.L.; RHPs Anthony Arguelles, Bryan Polanco reassigned from the FCL.
