Ronald Pena issued a leadoff HR in the top of the 10th to give Hartford a 3-1 lead and Harrisburg could only get one back in the bottom of the 10th on a Raudy Read RBI double to lose, 3-2. Tyler Mapes bounced back from his last outing to pitch into the 6th and give up an unearned run on five hits and a walk while striking out three. He was on the hook for the loss until Jake Noll doubled in Dan Gamache to tie things at 1-1 after six full. After Bryan Harper got the last out of the 6th, James Bourque and Austen Williams built a bridge to extras with three scoreless innings of relief. Hunter Jones was stranded at 3rd after a one-out triple in the 7th and Taylor Gushue’s one-out pinch-hit single went to waste when Jones couldn’t lay one down to give Alec Keller a chance to drive in Gushue to win it in the 9th.

Potomac 9 Frederick 5
• Braymer (W, 4-3) 6IP, 9H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 5K

Columbia 10 Hagerstown 7

• Scudder 2-4, R, 2-2B, RBI
• Choruby 2-4, 2RBI

Hagerstown built leads of 5-0 and 7-3 before Kannapolis went to town on the bullpen for seven unanswered runs and a 10-7 win in the series opener. Malvin Pena got the start and went to the showers after just four innings as the Intimidators got to him for three runs on eight hits. He walked none and fanned three. The loss went Jared Johnson who was run into the wall for six runs on four hits and three walks over an inning and 2/3rds. Gage Canning and Jake Scudder both doubled twice while Nick Choruby singled twice; the trio combined for three runs and five RBI to lead the Suns offense.

Aberdeen 8 Auburn 4

Jacob Rhinesmith singled twice and scored once, as did Carson Shaddy who doubled in three trips to the plate to lead the Auburn offense.

GCL Nationals – OFF DAY
The G-Nats got a much-needed day off after losing five games last week. They’ll host the Mets today, the Marlins on Wednesday, the Cardinals on Saturday with a visit to Jupiter on Tuesday and an off day on Thursday. Tuesday is an away game at their home park in West Palm Beach against the Astros.

DSL UPDATE
Like the G-Nats, the D-Nats have lost five straight – including a pair of shutout losses on Wednesday – to sink into 4th place in the DSL South, six games off the pace. This is week it’s home-and-home series against divisional foes Yankees, Rockies, and Twins.

• Milone (W, 6-4) 6IP, 5H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 7K, HR

• Collier 3-4, R, 2B, 3RBI
• Abreu 2-4, R, 2B, RBI

Harrisburg rallied for five in the bottom of the 8th to take the game 7-6 and assure no less than a split of the four-game series with Hartford. Jaron Long went the first five innings but was chewed on for four runs on nine hits and a walk. After Bryan Harper dug them two runs deeper while walking four of seven batters faced, Jordan Mills escaped a bases-loaded jam in the 6th and pitched a scoreless 7th. Derek Self got the benefit of the rally with a 1-2-3 eighth for his third win while Roman Mendez sent ’em packing with a clean 9th for his seventh save. Jake Lowery’s pinch-hit, two-out, two-run single capped the comeback for the 13th hit of the game and the sixth of the inning. Roster moves: LHP Jordan Mills, RHP James Bourque promoted from Potomac; LHP Ismael Guillon, RHP Kaleb Fleck released.

Frederick 5 Potomac 4
• Crowe 4IP, 3H, R, ER, 0BB, 3K, HR

• Garcia 3-5, R, RBI, SB
• Sagdal 2-5, RBI, SB

After two of the P-Nats’ more reliable bullpen guys were given the bump up to AA, their replacements proved unequal to the task of holding a 4-1 lead as the Keys rallied for four runs in the last two innings to win the series opener, 5-4. Wil Crowe returned from Auburn and gave up the first Frederick run on a home run and three hits total over four innings. A.J. Bogucki followed and labored through two and 2/3rds innings, needing Taylor Guilbeau to get the one and only out he would get to finish the 7th. He opened up a singles bar in the 8th with four straight batters reaching without an out. Carlos Acevedo let in one of three runners he inherited to make it 4-3 then coughed up the lead in the 9th for the blown-save-loss with some “help” from Rhett Wiseman’s fourth (charged) error that allowed two runs to score on a botched throw after a sacrifice fly. Roster move: RHP Wil Crowe reassigned from Auburn.

Columbia 7 Hagerstown 6
• Tetreault 6IP, 10H, 5R, 5ER, 0BB, 4K, HR
• P. Morse 2IP, 1H, 0R, 3BB, 1K

• Pascal 3-4, SB
• Antuna 2-5, 2R, 3B
• Choruby 2-5, 3B, 2RBI, SB

After trailing 2-0 and 5-2, Hagerstown finally tied Columbia in the 6th but couldn’t match the ‘Flies two runs in the 9th as they got the equalizer into scoring position with one out but struck twice to lose, 7-6. Jackson Tetrault reverted to the mean with five runs allowed on ten hits, including a home run over six innings. The loss went to Jared Brasher who gave up two runs on three hits and hit two batters in the 9th. Juan Pascal let the Suns’ 14-hit parade with three singles, followed Yasel Antuna, Cole Freeman, Nick Choruby, and Jared Brasher who each had two hits. Roster move: RHP Jhonatan German promoted from Auburn.

Lowell 8 Auburn 5 (10 inn.)
• Teel 3IP, 4H, R, ER, BB, 0K
• Driskill (L, 1-1) 3IP, 4H, 3R, 2ER, BB, 2K
• Marinconz 2-4, 2B, BB
• Agustin 2-5, BB
• O’Connor 2-5, 2B

The Doubledays rallied to tie it in the 8th but couldn’t win it in the 9th and collapsed in the 10th for an 8-5 loss that completed the sweep by the Spinners. Carson Teel got the start and went three innings with one run allowed on four hits and a walk and nary a whiff. The loss went to Tanner Driskill who was sent out for a third inning for the first time as pro and gave up three runs in the 10th. Telmito Agustin, Pablo O’Connor, and Kyle Marinconz combined for six hits, two walks, and two doubles as Auburn collected 10 hits total, but just four in 19 chances with RISP. Roster moves: RHP Alec Maley, LHP Nelson Galindez reassigned from the GCL.

GCL Marlins 8 GCL Nationals 1
• Schaller (L, 0-1) 1⅔ IP, 5H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, 3K, HR
• A. Hernandez 4IP, 6H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, 5K
• Robles 0-0, R, 2BB, HBP, SB, CS
• Perez 1-3, BB, RBI

The G-Nats took another circle ’round the drain as they dropped an 8-1 decision to the G-Marlins. Reid Schaller lost his first game on two runs surrendered on five hits, including a homer, over an inning an 2/3rds. Victor Robles walked twice and… wait for it… was hit by a pitch. He scored the G-Nats lone run after a botched pickoff moved him to second ahead of Wilmer Perez’s RBI single Perez also walked while Eric Senior and Jesus Morales also singled to round out the three-hit, three-walk barrage.

The Senators answered the Yard Goats’ two-run rally in the top of the 2nd with a three runs and held on for a 4-3 win. Logan Darnell gave up all three Hartford runs on five hits, including a HR, over six innings for his fifth win. He walked one and struck out five. Dakota Bacus, Roman Mendez, and Ronald Pena each put up a goose egg on the scoreboard to close out the game.

• Mejia 3-5, R, 2B
• Garcia 3-5, R, RBI
• Sagdal 3-5, R, 2B, 3RBI, SB

Potomac once again had no trouble racking up the hits (15) but needed a two-HR from Nick Basto in the 9th to get some breathing room to take its third straight game from Lynchburg, 6-3 and win the four-game series, 3-1. Joan Baez won his fourth game and not coincidentally pitched into the 6th with all three Hillcats runs let in on six hits and two walks. He struck out four. Jeremy McKinney finished the 6th and had donuts in the 7th and 8th innings for his third hold. Hayden Howard cordero’d his way through the 9th with two hits allowed and two whiffs for his first save. Bryan Mejia, Luis Garcia, and Ian Sagdal each went 3-for-5 with a run scored while Rhett Wiseman was the beer man, though he did draw a walk.

Hagerstown 6 Columbia 0
• Lee (W, 3-2) 5IP, 2H, 0R, BB, 1K
• Held 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 1K

Armond Upshaw singled twice, doubled once, and scored thrice while Kameron Esthay homered to lead the Hagerstown offense. Roster moves: SS Juan Pascal reassigned from Auburn (prior to the game; Antuna appears to have been removed during the 3rd inning for not running out a popup).

Lowell 6 Auburn 1
• Peguero (L, 2-1) 4IP, 6H, 4R, 4ER, 4BB, 2K, 2WP, BK
• Tapani 2IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 4K
• O’Connor 2-4, 2B
• Shaddy 1-4, 2B, RBI

Lowell torched four Auburn pitchers for 11 hits and cruised to a 6-1 win. Francys Peguero (pictured above) lost for the first time as he was burned for four runs on six hits and four walks over four innings. Telmito Agustin and Carson Shaddy hit back-to-back doubles in the 6th to break up the shutout bid but the Doubledays managed just four hits total, with Pablo O’Connor accounting for the other two hits, a single and a double.

GCL Astros 6 GCL Nationals 1
• Theophile 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Cuello (L, 0-2) 3IP, 2H, R, ER, 0BB, 2K
• Connell 2-4
• Morales 4-5, R
• Chisholm 2-3, RBI

Speak of the devil… Rodney Theophile made his second pro appearance and struck out the side in the 1st. After that, it was pretty much all G-Astros as they piled on six runs in the middle innings to extend the G-Nats’ slide to four games with a 6-1 loss. The “L” went to Carlos Cuello for giving up the first run on two hit over three innings. Jesus Morales picked up four hits while Justin Connell and Blake Chisholm had two apiece to lead the G-Nats attack.

After rallying for three in the 6th to take a 4-3 lead, the Doubledays gave ’em back in the 8th to lose, 6-4. Yonathan Ramirez went the first five inning and gave up three runs on six hits and no walks while striking out three. Nector Ramirez issued the tying run on a homer to lead off the 8th, then gave up two more with the “help” of an error for the blown-save-loss. Pablo O’Connor and Jacob Rhinesmith both had three hits and an RBI as Auburn racked up 11 hits but left on 12 as they went just 2-for-13 with RISP.

Harrisburg – ALL-STAR BREAK
Likewise, the Eastern League’s best players (and Tim Tebow) will face off tonight in Trenton. Five Harrisburg Senators were named to the team, and four will likely be on hand: Taylor Gushue, Dan Gamaches, Austen Williams, and Derek Self (Kyle McGowin has since been promoted to Syracuse).

Potomac 7 Lynchburg 4

• Sagdal 1-4, R, HR, 2RBI

Potomac rallied in the 9th and this time it meant something as they came back against Lynchburg for a 7-4 win and snapped a five-game losing streak. Stephen Strasburg made his annual a rehab appearance and was charged with a run on two hits and a walk over three and a 1/3rd innings. He struck out five. Taylor Guilbeau, who worked around the second of two Luis Garcia errors in the 8th, picked up his first win while James Bourque set the side down in order in the 9th for his fourth save. Rhett Wiseman and Ian Sagdal both homered while Nick Banks singled twice to lead the P-Nats attack. Roster moves: RHPs Kyle Johnston, Carlos Acevedo promoted from Hagerstown.

Hagerstown – OFF DAY
After breaking even with a 3-3 roadtrip through Eastern Maryland and West Virginia, it’s a three-game pit stop for the Suns at the Muni against the Fireflies before heading south to North Carolina for four games against the Intimidators.

Auburn – OFF DAY
Likewise, Auburn heads home for just three against the Spinners before they head to Aberdeen over the weekend.

GCL Mets 5 GCL Nationals 3

Rafael Gomez failed to hold a 3-1 lead and instead was strafed for nine hits over two and 1/3rd innings to pick up the loss. Among the regulars, Justin Connell got on base twice with a single and a walk and stole two bases. And if I didn’t bury this any deeper, the G-Nats lost to the G-Mets, 5-3.

Salem pitchers issued a total of eight walks without having one score until the 9th. That’s when Yankory Pimental sandwiched the ninth base on balls (Sundberg) in between a David Masters double and a Luis Garcia single before coughing up Ian Sagdal’s first homer of the season, a grand slam to break up the shutout.

A 5-1 lead was too small for the Senators bullpen to hold as they coughed up five runs over the final four innings to lose 7-6 in 10 innings. Sterling Sharp bounced back from the beating he took from Richmond with a quality start of two runs on eight hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out three. Kaleb Fleck blew his fifth save with a run in the 9th and lost for the fourth time with two in the 10th as he gave up five hits and issued two walks over an inning and 2/3rds.

Brigham Hill gave up all three runs on eight hits over four and 2/3rds innings as he took his second loss/ He walked none and struck out two. Phil Morse led a trio of relievers who shut down Delmarva for three and a 1/3rd hitless innings. The Hagerstown offense did nearly the same, as they mustered just five hits in the first six innings and were a woeful 1-for-10 with RISP. Nick Choruby was the sole batter to reach base twice but managed to get thrown out twice, once between third base and home plate to kill a would-be rally. Roster moves: OF Gage Canning promoted from Auburn; IF Branden Boggetto demoted from Potomac; OF Oliver Ortiz released.
