After struggling some during his first seven starts of the season, Simms was able to record his first win of the year June 7. During a 6-1 win against Wilmington, Simms threw seven dominant innings, allowing two hits, one walk and one run while striking out a career-high 14 batters. He is now 1-3 with a 3.92 ERA this season, ranking third on the Nationals in strikeouts with 40.

Wooten has been a consistent producer for the Suns' lineup all season, adding some pop along the way. During an 8-7 loss at Greensboro June 6, he went 2-for-4 with a double and a home run, driving in four runs and scoring twice himself. Wooten is now batting .297 this season, ranking second on the team in home runs (six) and RBIs (39) and tied for first in doubles (16).
