Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 9, Rochester 3

Double-A Eastern League

Akron 8, Bowie 6: Scott Pratt hit a three-run homer to cap a five-run ninth inning and lift the host Indians over the Baysox. Pratt reached base four times in the games, as he hit a bases-empty homer in the first inning, doubled and scored in the sixth and was hit by a pitch in the eighth. Tim Corcoran (0-1) retired just one batter and allowed four earned runs in taking the loss. Shaun Babula came on in relief of Corcoran and served up Pratt's game-winning homer. Dave Ullery had two RBIs for Bowie, which has lost three straight.

Single-A Carolina League

Salem 5, Frederick 4: Justin Lincoln had two hits, including a single that scored the eventual winning run in the eighth inning, as the Avalanche defeated the host Keys, who dropped to 1-10, continuing the worst start in club history. Beau Hale (0-2) allowed three runs on six hits in the loss. Mike Fontenot had two hits and scored twice for Frederick, which didn't commit a fielding error for the first time this season. Chris Buglovsky (2-0) allowed a run on three hits over six innings to earn the win, and Justin Huisman recorded the final six outs for his sixth save.

Single-A South Atlantic League

Delmarva 4, Hagerstown 3: A sacrifice fly by Ruben Francisco gave Delmarva the go-ahead run in the fifth inning as the host Shorebirds held on in late innings for a win over the Suns. Tripper Johnson and Omar Rogers each had two hits for the Shorebirds (8-5). Kurt Birkins pitched five innings to get the win.

Julian Benavidez homered for Hagerstown (6-7). Anthony Yacco took the loss in relief.
