Juan Soto broke an 0-for-12 hitless span with singles in the 1st and 4th innings and was given a seat by manager Matt LeCroy after not running the way he did for the postgame spread out a ground ball in Soto’s final plate appearance.

SSDD, as Harrisburg and Bowie were suspended after six innings with the score tied at 4-4. They’ll pick it up this morning and finish last night’s game, then play a nine-inning game. Kyle McGowin gave up all four BaySox runs on six hits and a walk over five and 2/3rds for a no-decision in his first AA start of 2018. Bryan Harper stranded a runner while getting the final out of the 6th. Daniel Johnson and Juan Soto were both 2-for-3 when play stopped.

Potomac vs. Salem – PPD

Roster moves: LHP Matthew Crownover activated from 7-Day DL; RHP Gabe Klobosits placed on the 7-Day DL; RHP Jeremy McKinney reassigned from Hagerstown.

They needed to as Carlos Acevedo (9.86 ERA, 2.14 WHIP in 21IP) turned a 9-2 lead into a 9-7 edge before Steven Fuentes came on in the 7th to earn the save, his first at Low-A this season. Nick Banks drove in three, as did Armond Upshaw, while Luis Garcia plated two to lead the Suns attack.
