Cam Eden hit a two run home run which was enough to give New Hampshire a win with good pitching from Hayden Juenger and Andrew Bash. Vancouver also won while Buffalo, Dunedin and the FCL Jays all lost. Irv Carter had some positives and negatives in his start.

Buffalo 3 Scranton 4 - 6 innings

New Hampshire 4 Portland 2

Spokane 3 Vancouver 4

Dunedin 1 Fort Myers 3

FCL Blue Jays 3 FCL Phillies 5 - 7 innings

This is what I noted from yesterday's games.

Because of a shortage of starters Bowden Francis was back starting for Buffalo. It wasn't any better as he allowed four runs in 2.2 innings. New signing Andrew Moore went 2.2 innings, no runs, but three hits and a walk.

Nick Podkul had two hits and two RBI.

Cam Eden hit a two run home run in the sixth to give New Hampshire their winning margin. Trevor Schwecke was 2-5 to keep his average at .316. Spencer Horwitz was 1-4.

Hayden Juenger gave up a home run in the third inning but that was the only run he allowed in his usual three innings. He struck out five. Andrew Bash followed with four hitless and shutout innings.

Vancouver bunched four of their six hits in the third inning to score four runs. Glenn Santiago got it started with a triple. Tyler Keenan and Leo Jimenez went back to back with doubles. An error helped and PK Morris finished the scoring with a single. Jimenez had two hits, welcome on a disappointing season.

Jimmy Robbins conceded a run in three innings.

Dunedin had eight hits. Rainer Nunez and Jose Ferrer had two each.

Dahian Santos took the loss with two runs allowed in four hits in five innings. He struck out six.

The FCL Jays out hit the Phillies six to four but three of the Philly hits were home runs off Irv Carter who is still struggling to find his groove. Carter did go four innings but the three home runs led to five runs, four earned. On the positive side those were the only hits he allowed while he struck out six.
