• Goodwin 3-4, 2R, HR, RBI, CS
• Skole 2-4, 2B, RBI
The Knights hit ’em hard, hit ’em early, and hit ’em often, jousting Taylor Hill in the 4th and holding off the Chiefs for a 7-4 win. Hill had all seven runs charged to him on seven hits, including two solo HRs, over three and 2/3rds innings. He walked one and struck out three while losing his fourth game. Brian Goodwin led the Syracuse hit column with three hits, including his 5th HR in the 9th, followed by Matt Skole’s 2-for-4 effort with a double and an RBI.
New Hampshire 10 Harrisburg 2
• Williams (L, 1-6) 4IP, 3H, 6R, 2ER, 4BB, 2K, HBP
• Mendez 2IP, 2H, 0R, 2BB, 1K
• Ballou 2-4, RBI
• Bostick 2-4
Harrisburg’s defense went full Little League, allowing four runs to score on one play without a hit (just two errors) in a five-run 4th as New Hampshire scored nine unanswered runs to turn an early 2-1 deficit into a 10-2 rout. Austen Williams lost for the sixth time in nine starts, as he was dinged for six runs (two earned) on three hits and four walks over four innings while striking out two. Isaac Ballou and Christopher Bostick both singled twice to account for four of the seven Senator hits. Roster move: RHP Matt Belisle rehab assignment transferred from Potomac.
Potomac – OFF DAY
It’s eight games in seven days after the P-Nats enjoyed their first scheduled off day since April 25th. The weeklong roadtrip starts with four against third-place Frederick, then a trip to the Redneck Riviera (see #3) for three against Myrtle Beach.
Hagerstown 3 Asheville 2
• Baez (W, 2-4) 5⅔ IP, 5H, 2R, 1ER, 2BB, 1K, HBP

• Gutierrez 1-3, R, 2B, RBI
• Wiseman 1-3, R, HR, 2RBI
Hagerstown struck for three in the 1st and the Suns pitchers made it stand up for a 3-2 win over Asheville. Max Schrock walked and scored on Kelvin Gutierrez’s double, then Rhett Wiseman went deep to complete the rally. Joan Baez pitched into the sixth and was charged with both Tourist runs on five hits and two walks over five and 2/3rds. Trey Lambert let in one of two inherited runners but finished the inning and turned in two scoreless for the hold. Mariano Rivera III stranded a two-out double to earn his fourth save.
