An 0-2 night for the affiliates Tuesday. Buffalo's game against Scranton-Wilkes/Barre and New Hampshire's game in Altoona were postponed. Buffalo will play two on Wednesday and New Hampshire will do likewise on Thursday.

Eugene 6 Vancouver 5

The C's battled back from 3-0 and 5-3 deficits but Giants top prospect Marco Luciano homered to center field in the eighth off Jimmy Burnette to give Eugene the win. Burnette wound up striking out five over the last two innings. Sem Robberse surrendered a two-run home run and three runs in total over five innings on five hits but struck out four without issuing a walk. Of note, nine of his 10 outs in play were in the air. Alex Nolan worked a perfect sixth but was clipped for two runs, one unearned, in the seventh.

Vancouver got on the board in the third on a Trevor Schwecke home run. Addison Barger drove in the other four runs with a two-run triple in the fifth and a two-run single in the seventh. Harry Ray was 3-for-4 as the number nine hitter in the order. Leo Jimenez doubled and walked, Garrett Spain singled and walked and Schwecke drew a walk to get on base twice. Zach Britton had a single but P.K. Morris, Riley Tirotta and Miguel Hiraldo were a combined 0-for-14. Hiraldo's throwing error at second resulted in Nolan's unearned run.

Fort Myers 4 Dunedin 2

A four-run fifth propelled the Twins affiliate to victory. Connor Cooke took the loss but he pitched three shutout innings after the fifth, striking out seven while allowing two hits, two walks and two hit-by-pitches. Matt Svanson pitched a two-hitter over the first four frames, walking one and whiffing five. Ryan Boyer struck out two in a perfect ninth.

Dunedin's runs came in the eighth on a Victor Mesia RBI groundout and an error. Estiven Machado, Rainer Nunez and Gabriel Martinez had the only hits.
