Vancouver won both ends of a doubleheader with the second game being a no hitter. Devereaux Harrison went six no hit innings for the win. It wasn't Jose Bautista, but Jonathan Bautista who hit his first home run for the DSL Jays. New Hampshire split a doubleheader, Orelvis went deep again. Buffalo and Dunedin were down early and rallied only to lose.

Buffalo came back from a 5-0 deficit to tie the game in the ninth, only to lose on a walk off home run by Toledo. Rob Brantly and LJ Talley each had three hits, Rafael Lantigua and Wynton Bernard two each.

New Hampshire won game one 6-1 with good pitching by Luis Quinones and Nick Fraze. Quinones went 3.2 innings with six K's, Fraze 3.1 with four. Leo Jimenez hit a 2 run home run, his third. Damiano Palmegiani hit his eighth, a solo shot. Orelvis was 1-3 with a walk.

Game two didn't go so well. Jimmy Robbins was rocked. He has lost all the mojo he had working at the end of 2022. Orelvis accounted for both runs with his 16th home run. He also walked for the second time on the day.

In Vancouver's first game they scored eight runs with seven hits. They also walked ten times. Dahian Santos started and went three innings but the star pitcher was Kevin Miranda who went four shutout innings with six K's. Offensively Peyton Williams hit his second home run in High A, a three run shot. Alan Roden had two hits.

Devereaux Harrison was the star of game two, six innings, no hits, three walks, eight K's. Harrison was at 84 pitches so Matt Svanson threw a 1-2-3 seventh. Harrison has now made four starts, 20 innings, nine hits, seven walks, 18 K's, three runs. Prior to starting Harrison made 11 relief appearances and nine of those were scoreless. As a reliever his April stats were OK but he was much better in May which led to him getting the opportunity to start.

Alan Roden, Gabriel Martinez and Jommer Hernandez each had two hits and all were part of the two run second inning.

Dunedin were in an early hole as Eliander Alcalde was rocked for six runs in 2.2 innings.

Ryan McCarty led the almost comeback with a home run and a double.

Joey Murray reappeared in the FCL. He threw about 20 pitches and was done. Addison Barger had two at-bats, Jordan Luplow four. The Jays were blown out but Victor Arias, 19, hit his first home run of the season.

Two Blue Jays in the DSL had two hits in their game. One of them, Jonathan Bautista, 19, homered. Bautista is from Santo Domingo, DR. Two pitchers caught my eye. Juanmi Vasquez, 19, struck out five in three innings. He was born in New York. Cawrin Salcedo, also 19, struck out three in an inning. He was born in Montreal. You have to assume that both families moved out of North America sometime after those players were born.
