Yesterday Hugo Cardona and Davis Schneider pitched for the C's. Today they picked up five hits between them in a Vancouver win. Will Robertson was the RBI man for New Hampshire as they also won. Buffalo and Dunedin lost.

Buffalo 2 Lehigh Valley 5

Somerset 1 New Hampshire 5

Eugene 3 Vancouver 6

Dunedin 0 Jupiter 4

This is what I noted from yesterday's games.

The Bisons used six pitchers. One was Nate Pearson who left injured having thrown two pitches. Nick Allgeyer came out of the bullpen and only went two innings, not sure why. Adrian Hernandez threw an inning but gave up a home run. In 20 AAA innings, Hernandez has allowed just nine hits. But three of those nine were home runs. When he misses he is very hittable.

Just five hits for the Bisons, Cullen Large with two including an RBI triple.

Luis Quinones seems to be rounding into form. He went four shutout innings, two hits and six K's. He did walk four, as he usually does. Andrew Bash followed and pitched the last five innings. He allowed an unearned run.

Will Robertson singled in two runs in the first inning. He also grounded out in the third to drive in his third run. Cam Eden drove in two with an eighth inning single. Spencer Horwitz was 1-1 with three walks and two runs scored. His hot June continues.

The C's went toe to toe with a strong Eugene offense with 12 hits. Two guys who pitched yesterday had five of them. Hugo Cardona went 3-4 out of the nine hole and drove in three runs. Davis Schneider was 2-3 with an RBI. Addison Barger had the only extra base hit, a double. Barger has been the C's best hitter but he has also had a high strikeout rate. For April and May he struck out in about a third of his at bats. In June that rate is down to 20%. He has also walked nearly as much in June as he did in the other two months combined. Those are positive signs for Barger.

Alejandro Melean started and went four innings, allowing two runs.

The D Jays had only two hits, and made two errors so not a memorable day.

Nick Frasso pitched well, four shutout innings with five K's.
