A five-run 4th broke open a 2-2 game as the Chiefs won their second game in a row, 8-4 over Charlotte. A.J. Cole won his 22nd AAA game in his 60th AAA start with six innings pitched, three runs allowed on seven hits and three walks, and three whiffs.

• Ward 1-3
Isaac Ballou’s HR to lead off the 5th was enough for Jaron Long and the Harrisburg bullpen to hold for a 1-0 shutout. Long gave up all five New Hampshire hits, hit a batter, and walked three over seven innings while notching his fifth win. Erick Fedde and Wander Suero both set the side down in order in the 8th and 9th innings for the hold and save, respectively. Drew Ward also singled while Stephen Perez and Neftali Soto each drew a walk to comprise the Sens’ two-hit, two-walk offense. Roster moves: RHP Austen Williams placed on the 7-Day DL; LHP Matt Crownover promoted from Potomac; 1B Jose Marmolejos optioned from Washington.

The Hillcats got two in the 1st and had a no-hitter through four as they took another one from the P-Nats, 3-1. Joan Baez lost his sixth game as he labored through three innings, letting in three runs (two earned) on three hits, two walks, and two plunks of Sicnarf Loopstok. Taylor Guilbeau and Mariano Rivera III combined for six scoreless innings relief. Jack Sundberg doubled while Victor Robles didn’t get hit by a pitch, walked, singled, stole a base, got caught stealing, and was picked off first. Potomac managed just five hits and three walks total while fanning ten times.
