Double-A: Bowie Baysox 8, Erie SeaWolves (Tigers) 6

High-A: Aberdeen IronBirds 12, Brooklyn Cyclones (Mets) 5
Noah Syndergaard made a rehab start tonight for Brooklyn. The All-Star pitcher worked just one inning, but one Aberdeen player introduced himself to the ace from New York. Lamar Sparks took Syndergaard deep on an 0-2 count. Cristopher Cespedes and Jean Carmona also went deep. Carmona’s blast marked his first at High-A.
Unfortunately, Aberdeen announced today that Hudson Haskin fractured his thumb and is done for the season. Haskin slashed .274/.379/.404 between Delmarva and Aberdeen.

Collin Burns and Billy Cook both finished 2-4 from the top of the order. Colton Cowser went 2-4, and Coby Mayo doubled but did strike out twice. Darrell Hernaiz, a fifth round pick in 2019, tallied three hits from the nine-hole.
