This is what I noted from yesterday's games.
This was a bullpen game for the Bisons with Joe Biagini started. The Bisons used six pitchers and as the old saying goes, you will find one who isn't on form. That was Bowden Francis who conceded two home runs and three runs total in the eighth.
Samad Taylor was 3-5 and scored two runs. That's five hits in the last two days for Samad. Jordan Groshans was 2-4 as was Eric Stamets.
Three runs in the first inning for New Hampshire capped off by a two run home run from Luis De Los Santos. Spencer Horwitz at 2-4 was the only multi-hitter.
Trent Palmer started and wasn't great. Three runs on six hits and two walks in 4.2 innings. He just struck out two. Jimmy Burnette went four outs with two K's and a walk. Thomas Ruwe who was just called up from Vancouver walked four and took the loss.
Nick Frasso was his usual dominant self for Dunedin, four shutout innings, one hit, four K's. The bullpen gave up four runs to turn the game around.
Damiano Palmegiani stayed hot with two hits including his eleventh home run. Rainer Nunez and Rikelbin De Castro also wad two hits each.
Third Star - Damiano Palmegiani
Second Star - Nick Frasso
First Star - Samad Taylor
