Potomac could get ’em on (12H, 6BB) but couldn’t get ’em in (4-20 RISP) and couldn’t keep the Keys in the yard again as they dropped the series finale, 9-8 to Frederick. Nolan Sanburn got the start and was lit up for five runs on nine hits, including two homers over six innings. The loss went to Mariano Rivera III, who couldn’t hold an 8-5 lead and gave up the final four runs. Jack Sundberg reached base five times with three singles, a double, and a walk while Matt Page walked, singled, and homered to lead the Potomac offense. Roster move: C Matt Reistetter reassigned from Hagerstown, placed on the 7-Day DL.
Hagerstown – PPD
The field at the Grasshoppers’ ballpark still hadn’t recovered from heavy rains last week, forcing a postponement of last night’s game and moving tonight’s contest down the road to Burlington. There is no word on when they’ll make it up.
