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.
