Espy awards ball to right field seats; Senators and P-Nats Win; Upper minors report 8/14

Syracuse is struggling for offense. Down 2-1 with two outs things looked rather bleak. But Boomer Whiting, pest supreme, worked a walk, stole second, and advanced on the throwing error to second with Danny Espinosa at the plate. Espinosa was down to his final strike, but launched a shoulda been game winning two run dinger into right field for his third homer in 9 games for the Chiefs. Sadly, bullpen FAIL led to a 4-3 loss for Indianpolis. Trade deadline acquisition Tanner Roark only gave up an unearned run in Harrisburg's 7-1 victory over Trenton. Callup Stephen Lombardozzi continued to replace much of the offense lost by Espinosa with his 2-5 night. He's hit safely in all four games since coming to Harrisburg. Garrett Mock made a successful under the radar rehab start for Potomac, giving up just one run while striking out seven in the P-Nats 7-5 win. I would love to have seen what the strike zone was like. By my math, 30 of the 51 outs recorded in this contest were by strikeout, including 14 in 5 innings by Myrtle Beach starter Brett Obelhalzer. Tyler Moore hit his Carolina League leading 23rd HR in the contest. Hagerstown was shut out 4-0. Not much positive to say about this one. Hagerstown managed just four hits.
