• Self (L, 2-2) 1⅓ IP, 1H, 1R, 0ER, 0BB, 0K
• Noll 2-4
• Gushue 1-5, 2B, 3K

The BaySox got two in the 7th to tie and walked off the Senators in the 10th for a 3-2 win. Kyle McGowin pitched into the 8th for the first time this season and was rewarded with his fifth no-decision for two runs let in on four hits over seven and 2/3rds innings. He walked none and struck out five. Bryan Harper got the last out in the 8th, turned it over to Derek Self in the 9th, who set them down 1-2-3. He lost in the 10th on a bunt single that moved the free runner up to third and a sacrifice fly that sent ’em in. Jake Noll was the sole Harrisubrg batter to reach base twice with two singles as the Sens went just 1-for-11 with RISP and struck out 14 times. Roster moves: C Matt Wieters assigned from Washington for MLB rehab; IF Khayyan Norfork activated from 7-Day DL.

• Guilbeau 2IP, 0H, 0R, BB, 3K
• Sagdal 2-4, R, 2B, RBI
• Corredor 2-5, RBI

Potomac rallied for one in the 8th and two in the 9th to make this look closer than the 9-4 score suggests. Joan Baez lost for the eighth time and failed to go five innings for the eighth time in 16 starts as he let in four unearned run on three hits (one HR) and four walks over four innings. He struck out three, hit a batter, and threw 86 pitches. Taylor Guilbeau (2IP) and Jeremy McKinney (1IP) both struck out three as they closed out the game with three scoreless innings. Ian Sagdal, Aldrem Corredor, and Luis Garcia each had two hits to pace the eight-hit, three-walk offense.

• Antuna 2-3, 3R, HR(5), 2RBI, BB, SB(8), E(23)
• Mergildo 2-4

Jackson Tetreault’s second straight seven-inning outing and Yasel Antuna’s fifth HR were the prime ingredients for a 4-2 Suns win over the Power. Tetreault let in both West Virginia runs on a two-run HR in the 3rd and two hits total as he walked two and struck out six in his third win. Jared Johnson worked around a walk in the 8th for the hold, his first. Frankie “Goes To Hagerstown” Bartow relaxed after Antuna’s 23rd error brought the tying run up to the plate and rolled another grounder to the 18-y.o. SS to earn the save. Roster moves: LHP Seth Romero placed on the 7-Day DL; RHP Malvin Pena reassigned from Auburn.

West Virginia 7 Auburn 6
• Teel 3IP, 3H, 2R, 2ER, 2BB, 3K, HR

Carson Teel got the start and left after three innings, with two runs allowed on three hits (one HR) and two walks, and three whiffs. The loss went to Jhonatan German who imploded in the 8th with three runs allowed on three walks and one hit. Israel Pineda singled twice and drove in a run with an RBI double during the Doubledays’ five-run 6th. Jamori Blash and Phil Caulfield both doubled twice and drove in a run as well to power the Auburn offense.

GCL Astros 5 GCL Nationals 2 – GAME ONE

• Cuello (L, 0-1) 3IP, 2H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 2K
• Emiliani 1-3, R, 2B, RBI
• Cropley 1-2, BB, RBI

In the morning matinee, the G-Astros built a 3-0 lead after five, gave up two to the G-Nats in the top of the 6th, and answered with two in the bottom of the 6th for a 5-2 win. Koda Glover was the first of three rehabs to appear in the doubleheader, tossing a scoreless 1st with a walk and two whiffs. The loss went to Carlos Cuello, who was charged with two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out two. Jesus Morales broke up the no-hitter with a single with one out in the 6th. Leandro Emiliani’s two-out RBI double ended the shutout bid while Tyler Cropley’s drove in Emiliani with a single to account for the second G-Nats run and the third and final G-Nats hit.

GCL Astros 5 GCL Nationals 2 – GAME TWO
• Schaller 2IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 6K
• Day 3IP, 3H, R, ER, 0BB, K, HR

• Chisholm 1-3, 2B, BB, 2RBI
• Vickers 2-3, 2RBI
• Robles 0-2, K

The G-Nats lumber awoke from their slumber in the afternoon game with a four-run 7th to break a 1-1 tie and split the doubleheader with a 5-1 win. Reid Schaller struck out six over two scoreless innings as the starter. Chandler Day gave up the lone G-Astro run on a homer and three hits total. Alec Maley made the donuts in the last of the 6th and 7th for his second “W.” Blake Chisholm and Trey Vickers both drove in two and reached base twice to power the G-Nats offense. Roster moves: OF Victor Robles, OF Alejandro De Aza assigned from Syracuse for MiLB rehab; RHP Koda Glover assigned from Washington for MLB Rehab.

Fellow 17-y.o. Pedro Gonzalez lost his perfect ERA but went six innings on July 3rd to pick up his second win in five GS.

• Noll 3-6, 2R, 2RBI
• Gushue 2-5, R, HR(10), 2RBI, BB
• Gamache 2-5, BB, 3RBI

Three Senators pitchers combined on a six-hit, 11-0 shutout of the BaySox. Jaron “Yep, my Dad’s Kevin” Long went the first seven, giving up four hits and a walk while striking out two and hitting a batter to earn his third win. Ismael Guillon and Austen Williams each added another goose egg and allowed a hit. Zach Collier was the beer man in the 14-hit demolition while Jake Noll led the way with a 3-for-6 night, scoring twice and driving in two. SS Carter Kieboom was named to the U.S. roster for the Futures game on July 15. Harrisburg manager Matt LeCroy will join former teammate Torii Hunter as the bench coach but will be unable to pull anyone from the game for not running “properly” on a popup or ground ball.

Salem 5 Potomac 4
• Raquet 5⅓ IP, 4H, 3R, 3ER, 2BB, 2K, HR, HBP
• Bogucki (BS, 1; L, 0-1) 1⅔ IP, 2H, 2R, 1ER, BB, 2K, WP, 1-1 IR-S
• Sagdal 3-5
• Garcia 2-5, 2B, 3B, 2RBI

The wheels came off the bus in the 5th as Salem scored five times to erase an early 3-0 Potomac lead and held on for 5-4 win and take 2-1 lead in the five-game series. Nick Raquet was charged with the first three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out just two over five and a 1/3rd innings. A.J. Bogucki let in one inherited runner and two of his own to get the blown-save-loss. Luis Garcia doubled and tripled and drove in two as did Jack Sundberg on a single and a double. Ian Sagdal led the P-Nats hit column with a 3-for-5 night. Garcia was named to the World roster for the [no free advertising] Futures Game on All-Star Sunday

Delmarva 9 Hagerstown 3
• Johnston (L, 2-3) 3⅔ IP, 4H, 6R, 3ER, 4BB, 3K, WP, BK, HBP
• Held 3⅓ IP, 5H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 4K, 3-3 IR-S
• Choruby 2-4, R, 2B, SB
• Freeman 1-4, CS(4), E(12)

The Shorebirds missed an extra point in the 4th but got a safety in the 7th and a rouge in the 8th as they tripled up the Suns, 9-3. Kyle Johnson took the brunt of the beating with six runs (three earned) on four hits and four walks while striking out three over three and 2/3rds innings for his third loss. Three of those runs were let in by Sam Held, who was only slightly less ineffective with two runs allowed on five hits and a walk over three and a 1/3rd innings. Nick Choruby singled, doubled, scored a run, and stole a base to lead Hagerstown’s six-hit one-walk offense.

Auburn 4 State College 2
• F. Peguero (W, 2-0) 5IP, 3H, R, ER, BB, 2K, HR, HBP
• Tapani (H, 2) 2IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 3K
• Zwetsch (SV, 5) 2IP, 3H, R, ER, 0BB, 1K
• Pineda 2-4, R, HR, 2RBI
• Daily 2-4

Auburn stopped its two-game slide with a 4-2 win over State College. Francys Peguero won for the second time on five innings of one-run ball on a homer and three hits total while walking one, striking out two, and hitting a batter. Ryan Tapani tossed two scoreless while fanning three to earn his second hold and Connor Zwetsch got credit for his fifth save despite giving up a run on three hits. Israel Pineda singled, homered, and drove in two while Cole Daily singled twice to lead the Doubleday offense.

GCL Cardinals 14 GCL Nationals 7
• C. Morse (L, 0-1) ⅔ IP, 1H, 4R, 4ER, 3BB, 1K, WP, 2HBP
• Milacki 3⅓ IP. 5H, 3R, 2ER, BB, 3K , 3-1 IR-S
• Vickers 2-4, R, 2B, 3B
• Emiliani 2-4, R, 2B, RBI
• Pena 2-4, R, HR, RBI

The G-Cards jumped out to a 4-0 lead after one, 7-2 after two and cruised to a 14-7 win over the G-Nats. Colin Morse, younger brother of Phil, got the start and somehow got two outs in between three walks, two hit batsman, a double, and a wild pitch for his first loss. Trey Vickers, Leandro Emiliani, and Landerson Pena each went 2-for-4 with a run scored to lead the G-Nats attack.

Salem 10 Potomac 9
• Crownover (L, 3-8) 4⅓ IP, 10H, 7R, 7ER, 2BB, 1K, 2HR, WP

• Sagdal 3-4, R, BB, RBI
• Wiseman 3-5, R, 2-2B, RBI
• Corredor 3-5, R, 2RBI

The P-Nats got five in the bottom of the 9th but needed six as they dropped their 10th game of the second half, 10-9 to the Red Sox. Matthew Crownover got knocked from the box—and knocked around, period—as Salem jumped on the 54 (of 90) pitches thrown for strikes for ten hits, two homers, and seven runs over four and a 1/3rd innings. It was his eighth loss in 16 starts. Ian Sagdal, Rhett Wiseman, and Aldrem Corredor each had three hits, scored a run, and combined for four RBI to pace the Potomac offense.

Hagerstown 1 Delmarva 0 (10 inn.)
• Alastre 6IP, 1H, 0R, 2BB, 6K
• Acevedo (W, 1-4) 4IP, 1H, 0R, 2BB, 7K, HBP
• Dunlap 1-4
• Upshaw 0-3, BB

Hagerstown was no-hit for nine innings but broke up the no-hitter and the shutout on the first two pitches in the top of the 10th and held on in the bottom of the 10th for 1-0 win over Delmarva. Tomas Alastre put up the first half-dozen donuts on the scoreboard with just one hit and two walks allowed and six whiffs. Carlos Acevedo closed out the game with four scoreless, giving up a hit, walking two, hitting a batter, and fanning seven. Alex Dunlap dropped down a bunt to push over the free runner while Armond Upshaw and Gage Canning each drew a walk to comprise the Suns offense.

State College 8 Auburn 0 (7½ inn.)
• Ramirez (L, 1-3) 6IP, 7H, 2R, 2ER, 3BB, 5K
• Pineda 2-3, 2B
• Marinconz 1-2, 2B

The Doubledays were shut out on five hits, 8-0 in a rain-shortened contest. Yonathan Ramirez allowed the first two Spikes runs on seven hits and three walks over six innings but lost for the third time. He struck out five. The Auburn ‘pen was lit up for six runs on four hits to put this one out of reach. Israel Pineda singled and doubled and was the only Doubleday hitter to reach base twice.

• Cropley 1-3, R, BB

Leif Strom went the first three and a 1/3rd innings and gave up two runs on five hits and two walks. The loss went to Fausto Seguro, as he let in three on four hits and a walk over two innings. The G-Nats drew six walks and collected eight hits, but were just 1-for-6 with RISP and left on nine runners. Roster move: RHP Jake Irvin (4th Rd., Oklahoma) assigned from Washington.

• Davidson 3-5, E, 2B, HR, RBI
• Kieboom 2-5, R, 2B
• Gushue 2-5, 2B

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. Carter Kieboom extended his hit streak to nine games with a single and a double while Austin Davidson was a triple shy of the cycle while hitting his 6th AA home run. Roster moves: 1B-OF Matt Adams rehab assignment ended.

• DeRosier 3⅔ IP, 2H, R, ER, 2BB, 3K

• Wiseman 1-4, R, HR, 2RBI

Potomac got three runs early and three runs late to end a five-game losing streak with a 7-1 win over Salem. Matt DeRosier got the start and wobbled through the 1st before picking up steam in the 2nd and 3rd innings. He left with an unspecified injury (blister? brain tumor? this is the Nats, they’ll never tell) with two outs in the 4th and two hits and two walks allowed. He struck out three. Jeremy McKinney got out of the 4th and tossed two scoreless to pick up the win. Aldrem Corredor singled once, doubled twice, and drove in two while Tres Barrera doubled, homered, and drove in three to lead the P-Nats attack. Roster move: IF Luis Garcia promoted from Hagerstown.

Delmarva 3 Hagerstown 0
• Hill (L, 0-2) 4⅔ IP, 8H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 2K
• Morse 1⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, BB, 2K, 1-0 IR-S
• Choruby 2-3, SB, 2CS
• Freeman 1-4, 2B

The Suns lost for the 10th time since the All-Star break, 3-0 to the Shorebirds. 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.

State College 3 Auburn 1
• Fletcher 2IP, 2H, R, ER, 0BB, 3K

• D. Smith 3IP, 3H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Shaddy 1-4, R, 2K, E

The streak stopped at nine with a little “help” from three errors as State College beat Auburn, 3-1. Aaron Fletcher got the spot start and gave up a run on two hits over two innings. The loss went to Angel Guillen, who gave two runs (one earned) on three hits, no walks, and struck out six. David Smith finished the game with three scoreless innings. The Doubledays managed just five hits with Carson Shaddy connecting for the only extra-base hit and scoring the lone Auburn run. Roster moves: OF Pablo O’Connor reassigned from the GCL.

Last Night in Hagerstown

One bad inning? That can be overcome. But two? Well, that’s too much.

The West Virginia Power sent up nine men in the 5th and 7th innings and five of ’em came around to score as the Hagerstown Suns fell yet again, 12-4 on a hot Saturday night in Hagerstown. It was their fifth straight loss and eighth loss in nine games since the second half began.

Tomas Alastre, who was making just his fourth start of the month of June, gave up a single on the very first pitch and then got through the first two innings relatively unscathed before getting dinged for two in the 3rd, on a single, double, walk, and a wild pitch in the 3rd to fall behind 2-0.

After a three-up, three-down 4th and retiring the leadoff batter of the 5th, Alastre came unglued in the 5th as he gave up a double, single, and hit a batter before getting the second out on a sac fly. But the Power kept the circuit open with another single, another double , and an infield hit that pushed the lead to 7-0.

The Suns answered with two in the 5th as they took advantage of West Virginia starter Hunter Stratton issuing three walks and his batterymate letting two go by to enable two runs to score with just a single hit, a double by Oliver Ortiz.

Jake Scudder doubled and came around on a pair of ground outs to make it 7-3, but that’s the closest it would be as the Power decoded Phil Morse for five runs in the top of the 7th on six hits to put this game away. Hagerstown got one back in the bottom of the 7th as their 18-y.o. phenoms Yasel Antuna connected for singles in between an infield hit that the umpires called an out by the diminutive Cole Freeman (5’9″? Maybe in 2″ cleats or 3″ heels).

Aside from Kameron Esthay’s fourth walk, the Suns went in order in the last two innings. The two teams continue their four-game series this afternoon with Kyle Johnston (1-2, 3.15) facing off against Cody Bolton (3-0, 1.03).
