Buffalo 6 Scranton/WB 5
Buffalo jumped out to an early thanks to a bases-clearing triple by Anthony Gose. Starter Liam Hendricks pitched a solid five and two/thirds innings of shut out basesball. The rest was smooth sailing until John Stilson allowed four runs in the ninth to make things close. Stilson has started slowly this year—disappointing since the Jays are likely going to need him to pitch some quality innings at the back end of the bullpen at some point this year.
New Hampshire 5 New Britain 3
New Hampshire continued its climb back to .500 baseball with a win yesterday. As mentioned, Deck McGuire was solid, going seven a third, striking out eight. The three runs New Britain managed were all unearned. Andy Burns had three hits, Michael Crouse and Jon Berti had two, and Jack Murphy doubled. Brian Van Kirk and Brad Glenn walked twice. Getting the drift? Lots of station-to-station last night.
Clearwater 7 Dunedin 5
Errors here did the Baby Jays in. Gus Pierre had his customary two, Daniel Norris had one, Dwight Smith Jr. had two (in the outfield), and Christian Lopes had one. Frustrating since Daniel Norris had a pretty good outing. He pitched four innings, struck out four, walked two, and yielded two runs, one of which was earned. Some good nights at the plate too, as Christian Lopes doubled twice, Dwight Smith Jr., Dalton Pompey, and Gus Pierre had two hits, and Kevin Patterson homered. Dalton Pompey and Dwight Smith Jr. are tearing the cover off the ball so far, hitting .346 and .329 respectively so far this season. Matt Boyd gets the start tonight.
Lake County 2 Lansing 10
Kendall Graveman went a solid six allowing just one unearned run. He struck out seven and walked two—lowering his ERA to 0.34 for the season. Jason Leblebijian has three hits, Santiago Nessy and Ian Parmley two, and Mitch Nay hit safely in safely in the first to extend an on-base streak to sixteen games (according to Lugnut broadcasters).
