It was a light night on the farm. The AAA and AA teams were off for their all-star breaks and Lansing were rained out. Chris Colabello could not help Dunedin win. Vancouver got five runs in the first inning and had an easy win. Bluefield lost while the GCL Jays had a walk off win thanks to two out RBI hits in the ninth and tenth innings.

Buffalo - All-Star Break

New Hampshire -All-Star Break

Bradenton 8 Dunedin 5

Chris Rowley has been one of Dunedin's best pitchers but he didn't have it on Wednesday. He was hit around for 13 hits and was charged with all eight runs. His ERA jumped from 2.89 to 3.53. Three relievers held Bradenton off the scoreboard.

Dunedin scored four runs in the first inning, it was all downhill from there. Chris Colabello got things started, he doubled to centre. Richard Urena singled, moving Colabello to third. Ryan McBroom then parked one over the centre field wall for a three run shot. The fourth run came when Danny Jansen doubled in Jonathan Davis. Danny Jansen was involved in the fifth run, he was hit by a pitch to move Gunnar Heidt to second. Dickie Thon singled in the run. The Jays had nine hits, Heidt had two of them. Collabello was 1-3 with a walk and a strikeout.

Lansing - Rained Out

Lansing will play two on Thursday.

Vancouver 6 Boise 3

Vancouver were outhit 12-6 but won. It started when the Canadians scored five before Boise came to bat. They loaded the bases in that first inning without a hit. A hit batter, a walk and an error filled them. Christian Williams singled in two, Mattingly Romanin doubled in run number three. Yeltsin Gudino hit a sac fly. A passed ball brought in the fifth run. Five runs scored with just two hits. Williams was involved in the four runs added in the fifth. Williams hit a two run bomb,after Jacob Anderson had doubled in two. That gave Vancouver a 9-0 lead.

Patrick Murphy went six innings. Boise got to him for six hits but Murphy got a couple of double plays and held the Hawks to just one run. Murphy had two K's. Stuart Holmes gave Boise two consolation runs in the ninth.

Princeton 8 Bluefield 3

Like Chris Rowley, Denis Diaz had a bad day. He came into the game in the third inning with Bluefield up 1-0 and a runner on first. That inning he allowed two runs to come in to switch the lead and by the time he left the Jays were down 5-2. Diaz gave up four runs in 5.2 innings. Connor Eller started and went 2.1 innings. He allowed one run on two hits. Angel Alicia was responsible for the other three runs.

The Jays outhit the Rays 12-10 but while the Rays were 5-8 with RISP, the Jays were 5-15. Nash Knight was 3-3 with a walk and his average is now .452. Cam O'Brien and Earl Burl each had two hits. Reggie Pruitt had a hit and his average is .286. Vladdy Jr also had a hit and his average is .221.

GCL Phillies 4 GCL Blue Jays 5

The 2016 GCL Jays have been leading a charmed life. On Wednesday they trailed 4-3 headed to the bottom of the ninth. One run in the ninth and another in the tenth ran their record to 14-3. In the ninth Alfredo Bohorquez led off with a single. A sac bunt and a ground ball moved Bohorquez around to third. With two out Norberto Obeso singled in the tying run. David Jacob doubled to start the tenth. Joshua Palacios singled but Jacob stayed put. A fly ball moved both runners then an intentional walk set up the force. That paid off when Manuel Herazo grounded to third. With two out Sterling Guzman singled for the walk off winner. It was one of Guzman's three hits on on the day. Bo Bichette went 3-5. Obeso and Palacios were 2-5.

Wilfri Aleton went six innings. He had just two K's but didn't walk anyone. Only one of his three runs conceded was earned. Yonardo Hernandez worked the last four innings without a strikeout but got the win.

Three Stars

Third Star - Nash Knight

Second Star - Christian Williams

First Star - Sterling Guzman

Vladdy Jr.  had an interesting day.   His two outs were lineouts to the outfield, and he was involved in two double plays, one a traditional 5-4-3 and the other not-so-traditional 7-5-2.  The scene: Princeton has runners on 2nd and 3rd and 1 out.  The batter hits (almost surely) a very deep fly to left.  Both runners tag up as the left-fielder catches the ball.  The left-fielder hits Vladdy Jr. the relay man who throws out the second runner trying to score.   Vladdy Jr. was also thrown out the plate in more traditional fashion trying to score from first on a double.

I wonder how his defence is coming along.

vladdy's had an interesting start. First series he hits 2hr, then slumps badly without walking and with striking out a ton for the next week or so. then sudddnly he seems to change his approach, starts walking a ton, stops striking out, and starts hitting a lot but without much power. Seems like a solid boxscore narrative about a young kid making quick adjustments might be made here. Or made up might be a better description.

Mike I won't forgive you for pointing out Dante Bichette's great gcl performance. It's making me unable to enjoy Bo's torrid start.

Any word on when Clinton Hollon will be activated. He is eligible.

And an unanswered question from Finch a couple days back: where is Mitch Nay?

Those 66 runs by Vancouver just might be a record :)

They definitely got their kicks.

Regarding Nay he's supposedly been injured all year. Haven't heard update in a while

Does that mean Maese is moving up?
Mike Green - Thursday, July 14 2016 @ 09:35 PM EDT (#326320) #
Vladdy Jr. is having a day- 4 for 4 with 2 doubles and a HR.  Nice.
