Buffalo won and Vancouver did not. New Hampshire did not play due to COVIC complications and Dunedin's game was rained out.

Buffalo 5 Rochester 4

Forrest Wall had a three-hit night, driving in three runs and knocking home what proved to be the winning run in the ninth against the Nationals affiliate. Gregory Polanco also had three hits including a two-run home run. Cullen Large was on base three times with two hits and a walk. Kevin Smith and Richard Ureña had a hit and a walk apiece.

Zach Logue gave up two runs in 5-2/3 innings on four hits, one of them being a home run. He walked nobody, plunked a batter, struck out seven and had five of his eight outs in play on the ground. Dany Jiménez struck out three in 1-1/3 perfect innings to get the win. Jacob Barnes coughed up a run in the eighth and Bryan Baker served up a homer in the ninth but still got the save.

Hillsboro 7 Vancouver 4

The C's will not have a .500 season after losing to the Diamondbacks affiliate. The Hops busted open the game with a four-run fourth against Adam Kloffenstein that included a two-run homer. Kloffenstein went six innings and four of his six runs were earned on six hits and a plunk. He struck out three and racked up a whopping 14 outs on the fake turf. Justin Maese had two shutout frames but Thomas Ruwe coughed up a run in the ninth.

Addison Barger had an RBI single and a double in his debut with Monty's Mounties. Trevor Schwecke had an RBI single and RBI groundout while Zac Cook had a run-scoring fly ball. Harrison Ray was 1-for-4 in his C's debut but P.K. Morris was 0-for-4 with a hit by pitch. Will Robertson had a single. Tanner Morris was 0-for-4 and saw his 36 game on-base streak come to an end.
