...and call it one.

the most remarkable thing to happen on Thursday was that New Hampshire fans - those who endured - got a whole 'nother ball game for free.

Las Vegas 5, Albuquerque 8

After having been staked to a two run lead before he ever took the mound, Shawn Hill promptly surrendered the lead by allowing three first inning runs of his own and the 5's would never lead again. He eventually stuck around six innings but gave up six earned runs.

New CF Danny Perales was 2 for 4 with a homer, and Adeiny Hechavarria was also 2 for 4.

New Hampshire 7, Erie 9

It was John Stilson's turn but Fernando Hernandez got the start. He was competent but unspectacular which is a fair description of Stilson's recent work. On the night he gave up 3 runs in 5.2 IP Five relievers combined to give up only 2 runs in the next 9.1 IP to keep the game tied into the 17th inning.

Sadly, six F-cats hitters went 1 for 7. Only Ryan Goins (4 for 6 with a homer) and Kevin Howard (3 for 7 with a double and a homer) broke up the mediocrity.

Dunedin 7, Palm Beach 3

Casey Lawrence delivered his typical yoeman-like work - 7 innings of 1 run ball, but with eight hits and only one strikeout.

Kenny Wilson and Jon Talley were each two for five with a double apiece, unhearalded Oliver
Dominguez was 3/4 with a homer

Lansing 5, Dayton 2

Anthony DeSclafinin threw six innings and the only two runs allowed were unearned.

Shane Opitz and Chris Hawkins 2/4, Opitz and KC Hobson doubled.

Vancouver 11, Salem-Kiezer 4

Roberto Osuna got his second start for the VanCans on Thursday and the dominance of the previous outing was not in evidence. Three runs in 3 innings with 6 hits, 2 walks and 4 K's.
The offense was spread around as four hitters had 2 hits. Two of those picked up a single double, one - Balbino - had a double and a triple - and one, Dan Adcilla, had two double.

Bluefield 5, Johnson City 7

Devy Estrada continues to plug along. 2 earner runs on five IP is servicable line for anyone.

Santiago Nessy returns from the DL and goes 3 for 4, Christian Lopes went 2 for 3 with two doubles and Seth Conner went 2/4

GCL Jays 2, Phillies 5

Alberto Titado pitched 4.2 innings and gave up 4 runs. Tyler Gonzales  pitched for the first time in three weeks.
Catcher John Silvano was 2/3 with a double - no one else got a hit.

Third Star: Christian Lopes
Second Star: Ryan Goins
First Star: Kevin Howard.

Took in my first game at Nat Bailey to see Osuna drop his K/9 rate drop below 20. First couple of batters fouled off a lot and he seemed to get to full counts fairly often. The hits were mostly line drives though there was nothing that threatened to leave the yard. He touched 97 once on the clock. I didn't see any others over 94.

On the position side, Sweeney was the only genuine prospect. He made one very smooth play at 3rd which drew appreciation from the bullpen.
The crowd favourite is clearly Jorge Flores. The shortstop, a 19th rounder this year, leads the team in OPS but it is probably his height - or lack of it - that makes him endearing

Stroman will apparently pitch one inning for the Fisher Cats tonight. Not surprising considering he's probably the only reliever on the team with his arm still attached.
