Rafael Lantigua had a big game for the Bisons. He hit a three run home run and added three doubles. LJ Talley hit his fourth home run, a two run shot, and added a double and a single. Cam Eden had four hits following his three hits in the last game. Lantigua had a hot May and got his average up to .333 by May 25th. He then hit .200 in June before having his big night on Friday.

Wes Parsons struck out eight in six innings. Rochester scored two runs on five hits off him.

For New Hampshire Jimmy Robbins had a no hitter through six and a third innings. Then a double ended the suspense. He completed seven and a third innings, two hits, one walk, seven K's. Robbins had a tough start to 2023 but he has been slowly finding his groove. He has given up one earned runs in his last four starts.

Miguel Hiraldo hit a solo home run to open the scoring. Will Robertson added a two run double.

Vancouver were down 7-5 early as Rafael Sanchez had a rough start. But the C's rallied to tie and then scored three in the seventh for the win. Alan Roden hit a three run home run early but after that it was the Devonte Brown show. Brown doubled in two runs to tie the game in the fifth and then added a two run home run in the seventh. In total he was 4-4 with five RBI.

Pat Gallagher threw 6.1 hitless innings, but was pulled then having thrown 85 pitches. He walked three and struck out eight. Leam Mendez followed and kept the no hitter going through the seventh. But the eighth started with a walk and that was followed by a home run. Bye bye no hitter.

Tucker Toman had two doubles, 40% of the Jays hits. He was also hit by a pitch.
