Akron RubberDucks 0, Erie SeaWolves 2
Box Score · RubberDucks fall to 21-15
Akron couldn’t put any runs on the board against a stingy Erie pitching staff. Willi Castro was the lone RubberDuck to have a multi-hit game, going 2-4 at the plate while Bobby Bradley went 1-3 with a double and a walk.
Veteran Jake Paulson was the tough-luck loser, giving up two runs in 7.0 innings on four hits while striking out six and walking one.
Lynchburg Hillcats 6, Salem Red Sox 2
Box Score · Hillcats improve to 19-17

Felix Tati put forth one of the best starts of his career, throwing seven strong innings while allowing two runs on four hits. He struck out two and walked two.
