New Hampshire hit four home runs, two from Orelvis Martinez, on their way to racking up 17 runs. Dunedin used two home runs in the last inning to turn a loss into a win in game one of their doubleheader. They scored eight runs in game two without a home run. While New Hampshire and Dunedin were feasting on runs, Buffalo and Vancouver were fasting, Vancouver had just one hit in ten innings.

Worcester 3 Buffalo 1

New Hampshire 17 Binghamton 8

Everett 4 Vancouver 1 - 10 innings

Dunedin 4 Clearwater 3 - game one

Dunedin 8 Clearwater 0 - game two

FCL Yankees 6 Blue Jays 2

This is what I noted from yesterday's games.

Just four hits for Buffalo. LJ Talley drove in Otto Lopez for the only run.

Seven pitchers used by Buffalo. Nick Allgeyer took the loss while Matt Gage gave up a run, his first in two weeks.

Where to start with the New Hampshire offense. They scored 17 runs with 18 hits. Orelvis hit three home runs last weekend. He added a pair on Thursday to give him a league leading 24. He added a sac fly to drove in five runs and he walked. Addison Barger hit a three run home run and added two singles. John Aiello, Luis De Los Santos and Cam Eden picked up three hits each.

Yosver Zulueta pitched two innings in relief. He walked two and struck out four.

It was a pitchers duel in Vancouver. Chad Dallas threw six shutout innings, two hits, two walks, eight K's. Justin Kelly gave up a game tying home run in the ninth then in the tenth walked the first batter and hit the second. Everett went on to score three runs.

Harry Ray's double was the C's only hit, he also scored their only run.

Dunedin scored three runs in the top of the seventh in game one to turn a 3-1 deficit into a 4-3 win. Two home runs were the ticket, Angel Del Rosario hit a two run shot to tie the game and then Will Robertson, on rehab, hit the go ahead homer. Eric Pardinho threw to more shutout innings.

Dunedin had the bats going in game two. Jose Rivas and Rikelbin De Castro combined to drive in three runs in the fourth inning. Jose Ferrer then drove in three with a double in the fifth. De Castro added another RBI single to give him three RBI. Del Rosario, who homered in game one, had two more hits in game two, one of them a double.

Connor Cooke had eight K's in game two in just four innings.

Andres Tolhurst started for the FCL Jays and threw his first professional inning. Tolhurst was a 2019 draftee in the 23rd round. He has been injured a lot so his first pro inning came three years after he was drafted.
