Taylor Hill took the loss, giving up both Bisons runs on five hits and three walks while striking out one (1). The Chiefs drew six walk but also hit into two double plays.

Syracuse 4 Buffalo 3 – GAME TWO

• Turner 4-4, R, 2B, RBI, SB
• Goodwin 2-3, BB, RBI
Trea Turner singled three times and doubled once as the Chiefs split the doubleheader with a 4-3 win in the nightcap. Aaron Laffey made the spot start and let in a run on three hits and a walk over three innings. The win went to Trevor Gott while Sammy Solis earned a hold and Rafael Martin closed it out for the save. Brian Goodwin singled twice and was intentionally walks as Syracuse piled up 12 hits and five walks total.
Harrisburg 4 Binghamton 3 (11 inn.)
• Giolito 4IP, 1H, 0R, 3BB, 4K
• Gutierrez (W, 1-0) 2IP, 2H, 0R, 2BB, 3K
• De Los Santos (SV, 1) 1IP, 0H, 0R, BB, 0K
• Difo 2-4, BB
• Perez 1-1, 2B, RBI
Stephen Perez’s one-out, pinch-hit double in the 11th snapped a 3-3 deadlock as the Senators edged the B-Mets, 4-3. Lucas Giolito, who was originally announced as today’s starter, went four scoreless innings with one hit and three walks allowed with four strikeouts. The win went to veteran J.C. Gutierrez with two shutout innings while Abel De Lost Santps worked around a walk in the 11th for the save. Wilmer Difo singled twice and walked once to lead the Harrisburg offense.
Lynchburg 6 Potomac 3
• Reyes (L, 0-1) 4IP, 2H, 5R, 2ER, 5BB, 4K, HBP
• M. Sanchez 3IP, 3H, R, ER, 0BB, 3K, HR
• Carey 2-3, R, BB, RBI
• Keller 2-4
A four-run first was too much for Potomac to overcome as they lost for the first time in 2016, 6-3 to Lynchburg. Luis Reyes inflicted much of the damage himself, walking two and hitting a batter in the 1st and five overall in four innings. He finished with five runs allowed on two hits and struck out four. Potomac cut the 6-0 lead in half with a three-run 7th, and put the tying run on base in the 9th one out before Hillcat reliever Trevor Frank got a strikeout and a flyout to stall the comeback bid and secure the win. D.K. Carey and Alec Keller both got two hits to pace the P-Nats attack.
Hagerstown 8 Lakewood 7
• A. Lee 5IP, 5H, R, ER, 2BB, 5K, 2WP
• Guilbeau (BS, 1) 1IP, 4H, 6R, 0ER, BB, 2K
• Peterson 3IP, 4H, 0R, 0BB, 4K, HBP
• Reetz 1-2, 2R, 2B, 3BB
• Agustin 3-5, R, 2B, RBI, 2SB
• Schrock 2-3, R, 2BB
The Suns took an early 3-0 lead, fell behind 7-3, then walked off in the 9th for an 8-7 win over Lakewood. Andrew Lee started and turned in five innings of one-run ball with five hits and two walks allowed. The defense took the 6th off as they committed three errors while Taylor Guilbeau was pinched for four hits including two doubles to “earn” the blown save. Tommy Peterson got the win with three scoreless innings of relief. Telmito Agustin knocked a double off the wall against a five-man infield and (presumably) a drawn-in outfield for the gamewinner. He went 3-for-5 total and stole two bases to lead the Suns 13-hit parade.
