• Davis 1IP, 0H, 0R, BB, 0K
• Turner 3-4, R, SB(5)
• Goodwin 1-3, RBI
Syracuse put up two in the 3rd, Lehigh Valley answered with three in the 4th and that’s how it finished in the opener. Starter and losing pitcher Paolo Espino gave up all three IronPig runs on four hits. He walked none and fanned six. Trea Turner went 3-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored while Brian Goodwin went 1-for-3 with an RBI as the Chiefs managed just six hits total.
Lehigh Valley 5 Syracuse 4 – GAME TWO
• Laffey 3IP, 5H, 0R, 0BB, 2K

• Turner 2-4, R, SB
• Freiman 2-3, R, 2B
The IronPigs completed the doubleheader sweep with a four-run 7th that turned a 4-1 Chiefs lead into a 5-4 Chiefs loss. Rafael Martin retired just two of eight batters faced and gave up four long hits, including a three-run HR, while walking two to rack up the blown save and loss. Aaron Laffey started and scattered five hits over three scoreless innings with no walks and two whiffs. Trea Turner did nothing to stop the drumbeat for his callup with two more hits, another run, and another stolen base.

• Mapes (W, 3-0) 6IP, 4H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 2K, HR; 1-2

• Keyes 2-3, R, 2-2B, BB, RBI
• Perez 2-4
Tyler Mapes turned in another quality start while Harrisburg doubled up Altoona, 4-2. Mapes allowed both Curve runs on four hits and a walk while striking out two. Abel De Los Santos, Bryan Harper, and Dakota Bacus combined for three shutout innings to close out the game. Kevin Keyes walked once and doubled twice to lead the Sens offense, which racked up 11 hits and three walks total.
Roster moves: RHP Andrew Robinson reassigned from Potomac; LHP Robert Fish released.

• Marmolejos-Diaz 2-4
The Hillcats completed the three-game sweep of the P-Nats with a 7-0 shutout in getaway matinee. Erick Fedde lost for the second time, giving up another home run and three runs total on three hits and four walks over five and 2/3rds innings. Jose “The Orange” Marmolejos-Diaz peeled off two more hits to push his average to .378 (second-best in the Carolina League) but the Potomac offense was held to just six hits total and drew no walks.

• Tillero 2-3, R,

Victor Robles and Rhett Wiseman both went deep in Hagerstown’s four-run 4th that highlighted a 9-1 win over Lakewood. Jefry Rodriguez won his second game with the one Blue Claws run (unearned) on three hits with no walks and five K’s. Mariano Rivera III and Ronald Pena I followed with two scoreless innings apiece. Victor Robles was a double shy of the cycle and drove in three (see: HR, 4th) and scored three while Wiseman, Jorge Tillero, and Ian Sagdal had two hits apiece as every Suns batter reached base in the blowout.
