This is what I noted from yesterday's games.
The Bisons were outhit 14-6 but 10 walks helped them score ten. Ex Jay Patrick Murphy walked three in the tenth to force in the winning run. A couple other ex-Jays were in the lineup. Josh Palacios is hitting .300 with an .839 OPS and Riley Adams is hitting .240 with an .801 OPS.
Thomas Hatch had a rough game and the Bisons were down 6-0 in the fourth. But Nate Lukes doubled in two runs and Chavez Young and Tanner Morris added RBI singles to make it 6-5. after Rochester made it 8-5, Gabriel Moreno singled in two in the seventh, followed by a run scoring wild pitch to tie the game. Jordan Groshans then singled in Moreno to give Buffalo the lead. Rochester tied it in the ninth leading to the walk off walk in the tenth.
Buffalo had six hits, five of those hits delivered an RBI.
New Hampshire came back from a 3-0 deficit to win. Adam Kloffenstein had a bad second inning, four hits allowed including a three run home run. Other than that he was super, one other hit allowed and he picked up ten K's in his five innings. The ten K's was a season high. Andrew Bash added four shutout innings.
Orelvis Martinez had a three hit night and scored the first two runs. He singled and scored in the second and homered in the fourth. It was his 20th of the season. Ryan Gold and Addison Barger added solo shots.
Jimmy Robbins had a night to forget, he gave up six runs in three innings. Naswell Paulino followed and wasn't much better.
The C's two runs came through two solo home runs. Catcher Andres Sosa had one of them, one of his three hits. PK Morris had the other home run.
Third Star - Nathan Lukes
Second Star - Adam Kloffenstein
First Star - Orelvis Martinez
