Here is your abbreviated, long weekend, minor league update. Buffalo stayed hot. Dunedin won too.
Buffalo 8 Scranton 4 - game one
Buffalo 6 Scranton 2 - game two
Portland 7 New Hampshire 1
Vancouver 9 Everett 10 - 11 innings
Palm Beach 0 Dunedin 8
FCL Tigers 6 FCL Blue Jays 2
This is what I noted from yesterday's games.
In Buffalo's first game Otto Lopez and Nash Knight homered. Knight's homer followed a 16 pitch walk by Cullen Large. Thomas Hatch started and was OK, four runs in five innings.
Game two was a bullpen game. Ryan Borucki gave up two hits and two walks and a run in his one inning. Kellen Deglan hit a two run home run, Gregory Polanco had two hits.
New Hampshire hitters have been finding it tough lately. They had just six hits in this game and three of those came in the ninth inning. Vinny Capra had three of the hits. Still no sign of Jordan Groshans.
Luis Quinones gave up five runs including two home runs.
Sem Robberse allowed five runs, three earned, in three innings.
Zac Cook, Tanner Morris and Phil Clarke homered. Eric Rivera had three hits.
Seven of Dunedin's eight home runs came through the long ball. Harry Ray, Mac Mueller and Zach Britton hit solo shots while Addison Bargar hit a grand slam.
Naswell Paulino threw five shutout innings.
Third Star - Vinny Capra
Second Star - Eric Rivera
First Star - Zac Cook
