Vancouver scored six runs in the second inning and never looked back. Dunedin went up 4-0 and held on for a one run win. Buffalo were down 5-1 but came back to win. New Hampshire were down early as Luis Quinones struggled and could not get back into the game.

Worcester 5 Buffalo 9

Binghamton 8 New Hampshire 4

Vancouver 8 Hillsboro 4

Dunedin 4 Lakeland 3

This is what I noted from yesterday's games.

Buffalo's Nick Allgeyer was hit around for five runs in the second inning. That put Buffalo in a big hole but the bullpen threw seven shutout innings. Of note, Ryan Borucki was back and he pitched one of those innings.

The Bisons hitters had 13 hits with eight of the hitters contributing. Tyler White had three hits including his tenth home run. Cullen Large also had three hits. Danny Jansen had two. Kellen Deglan added a three run home run.

The NH game was delayed by rain for around 60 minutes. I don't know if that affected Luis Quinones but he wasn't sharp. He walked two in the first inning and that was followed by a home run. He walked another in the second who came around to score. He walked two more in the fourth, both of whom scored. In total Quinones was charged with eight runs.

NH had only four hits, all singles. Demi Orimoloye had two of them.

The C's scored six runs in the second inning and that was enough to win. Tanner Morris had three hits and has raised his average to .289 and his OPS to .792. He also drove in three runs. Orelvis continued his resurgance with his sixth home run and two walks.

Sem Robberse just missed getting the win. He needed 85 pitches to get through 4.2 innings and was pulled one out short of the win. He gave up two runs on five hits while striking out six.

Dunedin jumped out to a 4-0 lead and held on for the win. Unlike Robberse, Naswell Paulino got through five innings to get the win. He also gave up two runs in his five innings.

The Jays had eight hits, all singles. Riley Tirotta was 3-3 with a walk, scored a run and drove in a run.

Tirotta has had an odd beginning to his pro career. He's hitting everything, and has more walks than strikeouts, but for a guy who had a huge power breakout this year in the NCAA, he's had only one double.

Very true about Tirotta.

Justin Maese has not pitched well this year BUT 46 IP this year is a huge step in the right direction for him. His 4 HR allowed and 27bb/59k is pretty good.

Tirlotta is interesting - 162 games in college (funny coincidence) - 270/363/465 with 24 HR 126 RBI (must have had some good OBP guys ahead of him) and 33 doubles.43-9 SB-CS.  16 of those HR came this past year (last 51 games) - imagine a guy hitting just 8 HR before
So far in 2021 he has hit 432/542/459 in 48 PA in A ball (Dunedin) at age 22 (a bit old for that league, but not too bad) while at 3B.  A 12th round pick this year.  He should get to Vancouver (A+) next year with a shot at AA if he does well early/in camp.

Could be one of those surprise picks that works out well.  Lets hope - even if as a utility player with a high average it would be nice.

Three more hits for Rikelbin De Castro today in the FCL. He has his average up to .252 now.

Coach I knew here who moved to become the head coach at the University of BC used to ask his players if they're hitting .400 before giving them instructions. It was like, once you're hitting .400 you won't have to listen to me anymore kinda thing.

Tirotta turned 23 last week. He is old for Low A ball.

I'm not at all worried about age v. level for guys who've just been drafted. Obviously if they perform, they'll move quickly.

Elvis Luciano is back on a minor league deal.

Pearson struck out the only 3 batters he faced tonight on 13 pitches.  That will play.
