Harrisburg 4 Binghamton 3
• Williams 2⅓ IP, 4H, R, ER, 0BB, 1K, HR
• Dragmire (W, 1-0) 2IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Marmolejos 1-3, R, 2BB, RBI
• Norfork 1-3, BB

Yadiel Hernandez’s RBI single in the 9th held up as the Sens put the Rumble Ponies in the barn, 4-3. Austen Williams filled in for Taylor Hill and gave up his customary HR for him*, and four hits total over two and a 1/3rd innings. Brady Dragmire got the win with two scoreless while Ryan Brinley worked around a single and Raudy Read’s seventh passed ball to earn the save. Jose “Orange” Marmolejos, who will be joined by Read and John Simms at the E.L. All-Star game, reached base three times with a single and two walks to lead the Harrisburg offense. Roster moves: RHP Austen Williams, IF Corban Joseph activated from the 7-Day DL.
* To be fair, Hill pitched eight innings of one-run ball (not on a HR) for the Chiefs and was the winning pitcher.

Buies Creek 2 Potomac 1
• Reyes (L, 5-8) 6IP, 7H, 2R, 0ER, BB, 4K
• Bacus 2IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Sundberg 2-3, 2B, BB
• Mejia 1-2, BB

Potomac gave Buies Creek an extra out in the bottom of the 1st, which they cashed in with a two-out double for two unearned runs. The Astros pitchers made it stand up as they held the P-Nats to just six hits for a 2-1 win. Luis Reyes took the loss with seven hits and one walk allowed over six innings and four strikeouts. Dakota Bacus pitched two perfect innings in relief. Jack Sundberg’s second hit (and Potomac’s final) was a leadoff double in the 9th. He made it to third on a right-sight groundout, but neither Ian Sagdal nor Taylor Gushue could send him home with the equalizer.

Hagerstown 5 Lakewood 4
• Watson 6IP, 4H, 4R, 4ER, 2BB, 7K, 2HR
• Bogucki (W, 1-1) 3IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Corredor 4-5, R, RBI
• Barrera 3-5, R, 2B
• Noll 2-5, 2B, 2RBI

The Suns remain red-hot and steamed the Blue Claws with two runs late for their eighth straight win, 5-4. Tyler Watson gave up all four Lakewood runs on four hits—and two HR—and two walks over six innings while striking out seven. A.J. Bogucki closed it out with three scoreless and got the win. With a little (OK, a LOT) help from a two-out error and a walk, Aldrem Corredor’s fourth single drove in Blake Perkins to cap a two-run rally that put Hagerstown up for good. The Suns collected 13 hits total with Tres Barrera tying Corredor in total bases with two singles and a double, followed by Jake Noll with a single and a double.

State College 7 Auburn 6
• Braymer 5IP, 0H, 0R, 3BB, 7K
• Rishwain (BS, 1; L, 0-1) 2IP, 7H, 7R, 6ER, 2BB, 1K, HR(solo)
• Pryor 3-5, R, RBI
• Panaccione, 3-5, RBI
• Ortiz 1-3, R, 2B, 2BB
• 3-15 RISP, 10 LOB

SSDG, as Auburn strafed State College pitchers for 17 hits and still lost, 7-6. OK, fine – hitting into four double plays didn’t help. And getting thrown out trying to advance from second to third on a flyball to LF to make the third out wasn’t smart, either. Doubledays starter Ben Braymer tossed five hitless and scoreless innings with three walks and seven whiffs for the no-decision. That went to Michael Rishwain who was, um, spiked for seven runs on seven hits and two walks over just two innings. Jonathan Pryor and Paul Panaccione both went 3-for-5 with an RBI to lead the Auburn hit parade.

GCL Astros 4 GCL Nationals 0
• Raquet 2IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Galindez (L, 0-1) 2IP, 4H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, 2K
• Silva 2-4, 2B
• Ventura 1-4

The G-Nats were shut out by the G-Astros, 4-0. Third-Round pick Nick Raquet tossed two scoreless innings in his pro debut, with two hits allowed, no walks, and two strikeouts. The loss went Nelson Galindez, a 22nd Rd. HS pick (no, really they *do* exist) out of Haines City, FL, as the Astros got to him for two runs on four hits over two innings. Alian Silva was the only G-Nat to reach base twice, going 2-for-4 with a double, as the G-Nats were held to five hits and one walk while striking out ten times.
Roster move: LHP Max Engelbrekt (40th Rd., Ore. St.) assigned from Washington.

Editor’s Note
For those of you not on the Twitters, we’ve taken on an intern. While I’m not a fan of either the ESPN blowhard or the Bengals/Jets QB, the name “Boomer” just seemed to fit. He’s eight weeks old today and he’ll eventually take over some of Louisville’s duties as she approaches retirement.

The win went to Wander Suero, capping off three and 2/3rds of scoreless relief from the Syracuse ‘pen. Alejandro De Aza plated the game winner with a bases-loaded single in the 9th after a Brandon Snyder walk, a Clint Robinson single and an intentional walk to Neftali Soto.

Derke Eitel started and pitched five innings of one-run ball on three days’ rest. Jose “Orange” Marmolejos also homere while Read also doubled and drove in four to lead the Sens offense.

James Bourque got the Jack Morris win with all five Greensboro runs allowed on seven hits and three walks over five innings. Hayden Howard pitched three scoreless innings and went to the mound in the 9th for the four-inning save but was pulled after putting the first two runners on. Tommy Peterson stranded them both while quashing the rally for the save. Telmito Agustin was the beer man (hombre de las cervezas?) in Hagerstown’s 12-hit, four-walk assault, led by Blake Perkins with two hits and two walks.

• Simonetti 2-5, R, RBI

The Doubledays walked off in the 11th as they took advantage of the Crosscutters’ fifth error for a 7-6 win. Joshual Ramirez reached on a botched catch and scored as Jeyner Baez doubled to left. The sequence made a winner out of Jake Barnett, who tossed three scoreless innings of relief. Tomas Alastre made the start and was touched for three runs on six hits and three walks over four innings. Omar Meregildo and Oliver Otiz both went 2-for-4 with HR and an RBI to pace the Auburn attack.

Jaron Long gave up all four Lehigh Valley runs on nine hits and two walks over six innings for the loss. Rafael Martin finished the game with two scoreless innings. Jhonatan Solano led the Syracuse 11-hit parade with three, followed by Brandon Snyder and Adrian Sanchez, who both went 2-for-4. Roster move: RHP A.J. Cole recalled to Washington.

• Norfork 1-2, 2BB

Richmond scored five times in the first three innings and held off Harrisburg for a 5-3 win. Kyle McGowin allowed all five Flying Squirrel runs on nine hits and two walks over five innings to wear the “L.” Jimmy Cordero (2IP), R.C.

• Mejia 1-3, 2R, BB, HR(GS), 4RBI

Luis Reyes was strafed for seven runs on seven hits (two homers) and six walks over four-plus inning. The loss went to Tyler Skulina who coughed up four runs on four hits over three innings. Bryan Mejia hit a grand slam in the 6th that gave Potomac a brief 9-7 lead while Victor Robles went 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored and drove in a run with a sac fly to lead the P-Nats attack.

• Perkins 1-2, 2R, 2BB

Hagerstown got one run in the 5th and two more in 7th to even this up at 5-5 before rain halted play in the 9th. As the final game of the first half, they won’t make it up, so it’ll go in the books as a tie on Father’s Day. A.J. Bogucki got the start and was ineffective over three and 2/3rds innings, letting in five runs on five hits and a walk. Hayden Howard was effective with four and a 1/3rd scoreless innings pitched with six K’s, two walks, and three hits allowed. Jake Noll and Anderson Franco both went 2-for-4 with an RBI as the Suns tallied nine hits and two walks total.

The Chiefs’ bullpen held the IronPigs to one run over the final four and a 1/3rd innings, including a goose egg from rehabbing Sammy Solis, but the bats were largely silent aside from Andrew Stevenson (4-4, 2B) and Adrian Sanchez (two-run HR) as they had just one RISP opportunity and left on five baserunners.

John Simms got yet another no-decision with an unearned run let in on one hit–the only one Richmond got–over six and 2/3rds innings. R.C. Orlan, Andrew Robinson, and Derek Self combined for 3⅓ scoreless innings of relief, with Self picking up the win. Darian Sandford connected on the gamewinner and went 2-for-3 with two walks and a stolen base to lead the Harrisburg attack.

Sanburn gave up both Mudcat runs on five hits and two walks while fanning nine for his second win. Dakota Bacus spun two scoreless to pick up the save, his second. Sagdal smacked a three-run HR in the 4th to erase an early 2-0 deficit and added an RBI double in the 8th while Victor Robles reached base three times on two singles and a walk and stole two bases as the P-Nats made the most of their six hits and three walks.
