Adam Kloffenstein was throwing a no hitter through 5.1 innings when a line drive hit his hand and went for a hit, ending the no hit bid and Kloffenstein's night. There is no word on the extent of the injury. New Hampshire lost, as did Buffalo and Dunedin. Vancouver have been the brightest star of the season and that continued with another win. Tucker Toman homered, again, while Addison Barger had a tough night.

Bisons pitching was not good, including Zach Pop who came on in relief, walked a batter, and gave up a grand slam.

Davis Schneider hit his 15th home run. Spencer Horwitz was 3-4

Addison Barger is being treated carefully since his return from the IL. He was given a day off Friday and played DH Saturday. He has played three games since his return, just one of them in the field. On Saturday he struck out four times.

For NH Adam Kloffenstein was throwing a no hitter through five and a third. The hitter hit a 105 mph line drive back to Kloffenstein who made an error on the throw. It was scored a single but more to the point Kloff had to leave the game with an injured hand. He had eight strikeouts and walked two.

NH had four hits. Damasino Palmegiani and Rainer Nunez had two each. Both of Palmegiani's were doubles.

For Vancouver Dahian Santos threw four scoreless innings with six K's. He was pulled after 65 pitches.

The C's spread the offense around with eight hitters getting a hit. Alan Roden, Cade Doughty and Dasan Brown each had two.

Joey Murray moved up from the FCL to Dunedin. He allowed one hit while recording five outs.

Tucker Toman hit his fifth home run and third in four games. Manuel Beltre doubled twice.

In the FCL Victor Arias, 19, had a triple and a home run, his third, and drove in four. He also walked.
