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.
