New Hampshire, Vancouver and Dunedin racked up double digits in hits. New Hampshire and Dunedin won but Vancouver lost as Yosver Zulueta hit a speed bump. Buffalo could not find their bats.

Worcester 6 Buffalo 0

New Hampshire 9 Binghamton 5

Vancouver 5 Tri-City 7

Lakeland 5 Dunedin 12

This is what I noted from yesterday's games.

The Bisons are short starting pitchers with Allgeyer injured and Anderson and Francis now in the bullpen so Joe Biagini made the start. Biagini gave up a home run in to innings. The game remained a 1-0 affair until the ninth when the Sox scored five off Kyle Johnston.

Just four hits for Buffalo, Otto Lopez had two. Old friend Thomas Pannone pitched out of the Sox bullpen, he has a 4.38 ERA.

New Hampshire scored seven runs in the first inning. Four singles and hit batter started it off. Then Sebastian Espino doubled and Cam Eden homered. Eden's was the only home run. Rafael Lantigua had two hits, both in the first inning. Spencer Horwitz, Espino and Chris Bec had two hits each.

Paxton Schultz started but was charged with five runs in four innings. Gabriel Ponce threw three perfect innings in relief.

Yosver Zulueta hit a road block on Thursday. The first hitter reached on a Leo Jimenez error. That was followed by a walk and a single to make it 1-0. After the C's tied the game, Zulueta walked the lead off hitter in the second. A one out single made it two on base. A ground ball double into the corner made it 3-1. The next hitter bunted and Zulueta threw the ball away, 4-1. Another double made it 5-1 after two innings. That was it for Zulueta, 57 pitches. Abdiel Mendoza followed and settled the game down with three shutout innings. Conor Larkin gave up a pair of runs that was the difference in the end.

Mac Mueller homered and was 2-4 with three RBI. Steward Berroa also went deep. Trevor Schwecke, Leo Jimenez and Davis Schneider had two hits each.

It was a big day for the bats in Dunedin with 16 hits. Jaun Gonzalez is a 21 year old catcher who plays every two or three days. He was hitting .111 before this game and .195 after having gone 4-5 with two doubles. Damiano Palmegiani and Rainer Nunez had three hits each. Rikelbin De Castro hit the only home run, his second.

Connor Cooke started and gave up one run in three innings. Jonatan Bernal allowed one in four innings.

Three Stars

Third Star - Rainer Nunez

Second Star - Damiano Palmegiani

First Star - Juan Gonzalez

Posted this in your last thread, but I'm curious, so I'll put it here as well.

The runner on 1st tried to go to 3rd which is where CF Chavez Young threw the ball. The inning finally ended on a perfectly executed 8-5-6-3-8 rundown. How often does the CF make the putout on a rundown?
Gerry - Friday, June 10 2022 @ 01:18 PM EDT (#415269) #
That is unusual. The 8-5-6 part is fine but the 3-8 is unusual.

I went and looked at the video. The runner was a dead duck, caught half way between second and third. The hitter was a lefty so the 2B was pulled over near first. The first baseman ran over to cover behind the third baseman so the second baseman ran to cover first. Young made the throw from somewhat shallow centre field and followed his throw and was the only one covering second for the put out.

It's unusual but I was always taught (as an OF) that when a rundown was in effect the closest OF went in to cover a potentially open base (usually 2nd because either or both the P or C would usually act as the backup on the corners if the rundown was 1B-2B or 2b-3B, respectively). You sometimes run out of a cover guy if you don't execute the run down efficiently.

Yeah, I watched it a couple of times. It looked like it was a set play the team had practiced the way Large ran from 1st to 3rd. Chavez was shallow, as you pointed out, and charged the ball, so his momentum was going to 2nd. I think Samad held up when he saw Chavez was going to beat him to the bag.

Did you ever get to make the putout?
Gerry - Friday, June 10 2022 @ 02:26 PM EDT (#415275) #
I have seen the following in minor Ontario ball (rep level). The infield is in, the runner on second moves behind the SS and the CF runs in to take a pickoff throw from the pitcher. It's rare but I did see it work.

I am pretty sure I have seen outfielders in a run down, some of the minor ball rundowns have way too many throws, everybody gets a turn!

I don't ever remember making a put out on the run down per se (it was 40 years ago:(). But I do remember the following play because it was so goofy - run down going on between 2B - 3B; as the CF I came in to act as a backup at 2B (just kind of loitering at the beginning); there was another runner on 1B who, for whatever reason, was electing to stay at 1B (presumably thinking that the hung up runner would make it back to 2B); the rundown was botched by a small throw away at 3B; runner at 1B elects to try and make it to 2B due to the errant throw; me making the tag/putout at 2B as the CF.

Awesome, thanks.

Tiedemann on the mound for the Cs tonight, and had a perfect first inning with 2 Ks.
hypobole - Friday, June 10 2022 @ 08:12 PM EDT (#415300) #
Tanner Morris with his 1st 2 AAA hits for the Bisons.
greenfrog - Friday, June 10 2022 @ 09:58 PM EDT (#415302) #
Tiedemann tonight:

5 3 0 0 1 9

His ERA is now 0.46.
Nigel - Friday, June 10 2022 @ 10:00 PM EDT (#415303) #
I was really hoping to see Tiedemann again at the Nat. Iím not sure thatís going to happen. I think heís too good for high A.
greenfrog - Friday, June 10 2022 @ 10:18 PM EDT (#415304) #
Heíll be 20 in August. Seems like he could be in the majors in 2024 at age 21 after spending part of this year and all of next year in AA/AAA.

Odds are a slot will be open in 2023. Stripling is a free agent and Ryu is very unreliable right now. Pearson will be fighting for it and if healthy would probably be handed it. Hayden Juenger will get a real shot, Max Castillo too, Trent Palmer on the short list. I figure you have to be in AA or AAA this year to have a shot at it to start 2023 but, as shown by Manoah, you can jump up quick if you do the work. I could see the Jays signing a swingman (Stripling or someone like him) as the #5 and seeing which kid earns that slot and if none do the swingman gets his shot instead. Buffalo could have a very good rotation next year.
