This is what I noted from yesterday's games.

LJ Talley homered for Buffalo in the eighth to turn a 3-2 deficit into a 5-3 lead. It was an opposite field shot. Otto Lopez had two more hits. The Bisons used eight pitchers.

New Hampshire scored two in the ninth to win 5-4. Addison Barger singled, Luis De Los Santos doubled, Phil Clarke hit a sac fly and Cam Eden singled in the winning run. Earlier Zach Britton hit a two run home run and Sebastian Espino a solo shot. Barger was 4-5 with two doubles. He is hitting .462.

Four pitchers used by the Fisher Cats. Sean Mellen started and struck out six in three innings.

Trenton Wallace had six strikeouts out of the eight outs he recorded. But he did surrender a three run home run. Matt Svanson also allowed a home run in his 2.1 innings. For the C's, Leo Jimenez hit a two run home run.

The D Jays held the Phillies to just two hits. Dahian Santos was the starter. He did give up a home run but struck out eight in four innings. Estiven Machado had two hits, Rainer Nunez two RBI.

Robert Robertis had two hits, Yhoangel Aponte one. Those two teenagers are the leading hitters on the FCL team.
