• Hernandez 1-2, 2BB, RBI
• Gamache 1-2, BB

Cavan Biggio’s two-run HR in the 1st would prove to be enough, but New Hampshire made sure with four in the 7th as they took the opener from Harrisburg, 6-1. Logan Darnell threw four scoreless afterwards, but his five innings of two-run ball weren’t enough to prevent the loss. He walked none and struck out four while giving up seven hits total. Derek Self put up a donut in the 6th but was dunked for four in the 7th. Yadiel Hernandez plated Daniel Johnson, who led off the 1st with a double, with an RBI but the Sens were held to just three more hits and were unable to cash in on the seven walks issued by the Fisher Cats.

Harrisburg 2 New Hampshire 1 – GAME TWO

• Mendez (W, 2-1) 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 0K

Brady Dragmire ran out of gas in the 6th after loading the bases with no outs. Israel Guillon let in one of his three inherited runners for the blown save. Roman Mendez followed with a scoreless 7th and was rewarded with the “W” as Khayyan Norfork drew a leadoff walk, took second on a Daniel Johnson sacrifice and scored ahead of Hernandez’s hit.

• Kieboom 2-4, 2-2B, E(8)
• Mejia 2-4, R, RBI

Sterling Sharp went the first five innings and was charged with two unearned runs on five hits and three walks. He hit a batter and struck out a batter. The loss went to Gabe Klobosits with three unearned runs let in on two hits and two walks with a hit batsman and two wild pitches. Edwin Lora and Jake Noll both had two errors, but while Lora led the Potomac hit column with three, Noll was the beer man with zero in the 13-hit, three-walk offense.

The PawSox shredded Erick Fedde for all five runs on nine hits over five innings. He walked two and struck out four. Phillips Valdez locked ’em down for three and a 1/3rd innings but the win went to Justin Miller, who escaped a three-on, one-out jam in the top of the 9th.

Jordan Mills pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for the save, his third. Bryan Mejia was a triple shy of the cycle and drove in three while Carter Kieboom singled twice, scored twice, and doubled to lead the P-Nats attack. Roster moves: RHP Tyler Mapes activated from the 7-Day DL.

Hagerstown 10 Charleston 8 (6 inn.)

• Scudder 3-4, R, 2-2B, 2RBI
• Antuna 2-3, R, 2RBI, E(8)
• Corredor 2-4, 2RBI

The Suns solved their bullpen woes by not having to use more than one reliever, thanks to the rain that shortened the game to six innings for 10-8 win over the RiverDogs. Tomas Alastre was knocked from the box in the 5th after West Virginia lit him up for all eight runs on eight hits, including three longballs, and three walks. Jeremy McKinney stranded two by getting the last out of the 5th and pitched a scoreless 6th to earn the win. Every Hagerstown batter had a hit, with six having two or more.

• 14H, 4BB, 2-12 RISP, 13 LOB

The P-Nats struggled in the clutch but pushed across just enough runs to unlock the Keys, 4-3. Wil Crowe let in all three Frederick runs on four hits and four walks over six innings for his second no-decision. The win went to Ronald Pena for a scoreless 7th before Potomac got a pair of singles and a sacrifice fly from Ian Sagdal, who reached base in four of five plate appearances with three singles and a double. No beer man tonight as every batter got a hit, but just two came with runners in scoring position as the P-Nats left on 13 baserunners. Roster moves: OF Telmito Agustin placed on the 7-Day DL; OF Jack Sundberg reassigned from Hagerstown.
