Buffalo 3 Toledo 4
Ricky Romero had an excuse for his last start, he had been ill. I don't know if he had an excuse on Saturday but it was not a good start. He allowed 11 baserunners, 8 hits and 3 walks, in 4.2 innings. John Stilson pitched 1.2 shutout innings, Sergio Santos had a perfect inning.
Toledo led 4-1 heading to the ninth when they called on Jose Valverde for the save. Ryan Goins hit a two run home run to make it a 4-3 game. Mike Nickeas followed with a single and Munenori Kawasaki walked. But then Valverde got it together, he induced a double play grounder from Kevin Pillar and a ground out from Anthony Gose. Andy LaRoche and Goins had two hits each.
Altoona 9 New Hampshire 2
The bad Ryan Tepera showed up, really bad, he was charged with 9 runs in 3.2 innings. Randy Boone pitched 3.1 shutout innings and Evan Crawford 2.
Gabe Jacobo was the only Fisher Cat with two hits, one of them was a solo home run. Andy Burns was 1-4 with a walk, AJ Jimenez 0-3 with a walk.
Jupiter 1 Dunedin 11
Four runs in the sixth and five in the seventh put this one away. Kenny Wilson scored the first two runs, both times on wild pitches. In the sixth Matt Newman hit a three run home run, and Gustavo Pierre followed with a solo shot of his own. Wilson started the seventh with a double. That was followed by four walks and an error before Shane Opitz singled to bring in the last 2 runs. Wilson was 3-3 with 2 walks. Marcus Knecht and Oliver Dominguez had two hits each.
Kyle Drabek started and was perfect other than an error in 4.2 innings. He had 6 strikeouts. John Anderson pitched 3.1 innings and was charged with an unearned run. Tyler Ybarra closed it out.

Lansing scored a run in each of the first four innings while three pitchers combined on a 3 hitter. Javier Avendano pitched 5.1 innings, Efrain Nieves 2.2 and Arik Silula the ninth.
Jorge Flores scored the first run and doubled in the second run. Kellen Sweeney scored the second run and had a solo home run later. Santiago Nessy also doubled in a run. The Lugnuts had just six hits.
Vancouver 2 Eugene 5
Vancouver led 2-0 into the bottom of the sixth. The first run scored on the lead-off walk, wild pitch combo that was so popular on Saturday. Melvin Garcia doubled and Justin Atkinson singled him home for run number 2. Kyle Anderson cruised through the first 5.2 innings but then hit a batter. He was lifted for Tim Brechbuehler who gave up a single. The call then went out for Alonzo Gonzalez. A double then tied the game. In the eighth 3 doubles off Gonzalez sealed his fate and the Canadians were down 5-2.
Chaz Frank and Justin Atkinson each had 2 hits for Vancouver.
