The first half of the season was not good for Addison Barger. He spent time on the IL and didn't hit all that well when he was fit. On Friday he had three hits over 100 mph, including his third home run. Davis Schneider also homered as Buffalo won. Damiano Palmegiani homered in New Hampshire's win. Devonte Brown homered to give Vancouver the win. Dunedin lost.

Three of the younger pitchers, Hagen Danner, Jimmy Burnette and Hayden Juenger each pitched a scoreless inning.

Sem Robberse is back from the futures game and pitched well. He did give up a two run home run, but in five innings he just allowed three hits. Mason Fluharty and TJ Brock continued to be strong at the back of the bullpen.

Damiano Palmegiani got the scoring started with his eleventh home run. Steward Berroa tripled in two runs, Miguel Hiraldo doubled in two. Sebastian Espino had three hits.

Devonte Brown hit a two run home run in the sixth inning to break a 2-2 tie and set Vancouver up for the win. Alan Roden went 3-4, Gabriel Martinez 3-3 with a walk.

For Dunedin, Rafael Ohashi was hit around by Bradenton for five runs in five innings.
