Jimmy Robbins still hasn't got a grip on AAA. He pitched into the third inning and was charged with six runs. He had given up three when he was removed but reliever Gabe Klobosits gave up a grand slam.

Eight hits for the Bisons. Addison Barger had two doubles and a walk. Ernie Clement homered.

Alan Roden hit his first AA home run yesterday. He hit his second on Saturday, a three run bomb in the first inning. Riley Tirotta added a solo shot in the second and Miguel Hiraldo a three run homer in the fifth. Hiraldo decided that twice was nice so he hit a solo home run in the seventh. Three hits for Hiraldo as he added a double in the eighth that drove in two more runs. Six RBI for Hiraldo.

Abdiel Mendoza went five innings, just three hits allowed with five K's.

Vancouver built a 5-2 lead through four innings. Cade Doughty hit a two run home run, his 14th. Then Tri-City mounted a comeback scoring two runs off starter Rafael Sanchez and three off Al Pesto.

That takes us to the bottom of the eighth. Ryan McCarty singled to get the rally started, one of his three hits on the night. He also walked. With two outs Devonte Brown walked, then Dasan Brown singled in a run. Doughty singled in the tying run and the runners moved up to second and third on an error. The Dust Devils then intentionally walked Peyton Williams to load the bases. The pitcher then hit Josh Kasevich to bring in the winning run.

Dunedin held Lakeland to just three hits but lost to a walk off double in the bottom of the ninth. Lazaro Estrada started for the Jays and went 5.2 innings, two hits allowed with five K's.

Six hits for the Jays, Nick Goodwin and Roque Salinas had two each.
