• Lisson 2-4, R, 2B, RBI
• Mastroianni 2-4, 2B, RBI
The Knights roughed up Joe Ross for three runs in his AAA debut as they doubled up the Chiefs, 4-2 to earn a series split. Ross struck out four, walked one, and gave up five hits, including a solo HR in his fifth and final inning. Veterans Darin Mastroianni and Mario Lisson both went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI to lead the Syracuse offense, which sputtered to a 2-for-12 mark with RISP.
Roster move: While not official yet, James Wagner of the Washington Post is reporting that Trea Turner has been promoted.
Harrisburg 2 Binghamton 1
• Bacus (W, 4-1) 7⅔ IP, 5H, R, ER, 4BB, 6K
• Harper (H, 4) ⅓ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 0K, 2-0 IR-S
• Mendez (SV, 6) 1IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Bostick 2-3, 2B
• Severino 1-3, BB, RBI
Harrisburg scored early but not often but got the pitching necessary to win, 2-1. Dakota Bacus pitched a career-high seven and 2/3rds innings with just one run allowed on five hits and four walks while striking out six. Bryan Harper stranded two runners while getting the last out of the 8th to earn his fourth hold. Gilberto Mendez struck out two while closing the door in the 9th. Christopher Bostick went 2-for-3 to lead the Senator hit column while Pedro Severino and Matt Skole each had an RBI single in the 1st inning.
Potomac 0 Wilmington 0 — SUSP.
Lucas Giolito, who will be going to the Futures Game for the second straight year along with Trea Turner, had his night end early thanks to the rain. They’ll complete this one tonight then play a seven-inning game for a de facto doubleheader.
Roster move: RHP Cody Davis released.
Delmarva 9 Hagerstown 7
• Van Orden 3IP, 6H, 6R, 6ER, 2BB, 2K
• Williams (L, 0-1) 2IP, 0H, 2R, 2ER, 3BB, 4K
• Davidson 2-4, R, 2B, RBI
• Read 2-4, 2B
• Keller 2-5, R, 2B, RBI
A seven-run lead was too small for Hagerstown’s pitchers to work with as they gave up nine unanswered runs in a 9-7 loss to Delmarva. Drew Van Orden started and was shellacked for six runs in his third and final inning of work. Deion Williams was charged with the loss when R.C. Orlan let in both of his inherited runners. Offensively, Jeff Gardner was the beer man as the only batter not to hit safely as the Suns piled up 11 hits in the first six and a 1/3rd innings while Austin Davidson, Raudy Read, Alec Keller, and Osvaldo Abreu each had a single and a double.
West Virginia 12 Auburn 3

Matthew Page reached base three times with a walk and two singles as the Doubledays were held to six hits total.
