Buffalo's bats were in fine working order on Saturday, enough hits for ten runs. Vancouver were the opposite, few hits but enough for a 2-0 win thanks to excellent pitching. Dunedin lost a close one while New Hampshire were rained out.

The bats were working in Buffalo, 15 hits for the Bisons. Wynton Bernard hit his third home run, one of his three hits. Five Bisons had a pair of hits each. Cam Eden was one of them and he drove in four runs

Zach Thompson needed 90 pitches to get through 3.2 innings.

Devereaux Harrison keeps going strong. On Saturday he pitched six scoreless innings with four K's and four hits. His ERA is down to 1.83. Abdiel Mendoza followed with three scoreless innings of his own.

The C's had just four hits. One of them was a Michael Turconi double to drive in the first run. Gabriel Martinez had a sac fly to score the second.

Dunedin also had a hitter drought, four hits also. Eliander Alcalde gave up four runs in the fourth inning and that was enough for Lakeland.

Joey Murray and Brady Rodning pitched in the FCL as their rehabs continue.

In the DSL the teams leading hitter, Daniel Perez, hit his first home run. Perez is hitting .421. Perez is 21 years old, somewhat old for the DSL. He is from Cuba and could he headed to the FCL if he keeps this up.
