Vancouver Canadians

The Vancouver Canadians jumped out to an early lead with two unearned runs in the top of the first inning but it was the Tri-City Bus Devils who scored when it mattered most getting two runs in the bottom of the 10th inning to get the 3-2 walk-it off win.

Vancouver did have a chance to score in the 10th but their runner, who is placed on 2nd as part of the extra innings rules, was picked off. The Dust Devils capitalized on their chance to score in the bottom of the inning off of an infield single.

Devereaux Harrison had a strong start with five innings of work, surrendering a solo homer in the fifth as his only earned run. He also allowed four hits, struck out four and had no walks. He ends the season at 5-5 with a 2.95 ERA.

The Canadians are back at it today in Tri-City with the series knotted at one game a piece. Kevin Miranda is on the mound against Nick Horvath for the Dust Devils.

Buffalo Bisons

The Buffalo Bisons lost for the first time in eight games falling 8-5 to the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs Wednesday night.

This one went to 11 innings and it was a double by the IronPigs Dustin Peterson that cleared the bases and made it 8-5. Buffalo couldnít get a hit from reliever Ben Bowden who shut them down in the bottom of the inning.

The Bisons had made it 5-5 in the eighth inning with four straight walks. Nathan Lukes and Damian Palmegiani singled to score two runs and Addison Barger walked home with the bases loaded to make it 5-5.

The Bisons and IronPigs are at it again today at 6:05 pm local time with starters to be announced.

New Hampshire Fisher Cats

The New Hampshire Fisher Cats were also losers Wednesday to the Bowie Baysox in extra innings 8-5. They now have a 1-11 record in extra-inning games.

Riley Tirotta continues his strong Double-A play hitting a solo shot to right field in the third inning to open the scoring. Thatís his 2nd straight game with a home run and he now has seven on the year. He also has four extra-base hits, two home runs and seven RBIs in September.

Rainer Nunez would even the score at 4-4 after the Baysox had stormed out to a 4-1 lead in their half of the sixth inning. His double to right cashed in all three runs after the Fisher Cats had loaded the bases.

Michael Dominguez was back on the mound for this game getting a no-decision on an outing that saw him throw four innings and allowed three runs on two hits to go with three walks and three strikeouts.

RHP Zach Haake (1-4, 5.67 ERA) will start for Reading while the Fisher Cats havenít named a starter. Game time is 7:05 pm tonight.

Dunedin Blue Jays

The Jupiter Hammerheads took the second game of this series over the Dunedin Blue Jays 10-4 despite Dunedin scoring four runs in the first.

The Hammerheads scored singles in the second and third innings, three in the fifth and ninth and two in the 6th.

One of the key moments in the game was when Jupiterís Brett Roberts grounded out and that allowed Jordan McCants to score. That made it 5-4 Hammerheads. Tony Bullard then crushed a two-run homer in the sixth to make it 7-4 and the Hammerheads did not relinquish the lead again.

The Hammerheads and Blue Jays play the third game of their series today starting at 6:30pm EST. Starters for each team have not been announced.

So where are our minor league teams in terms of playoffs?
  • Buffalo - 3rd in the IL 2 games back of Tampa's AAA team with the Phillies inbetween. Baltimore's team won the first half in a landslide (8 1/2 ahead). Overall Buffalo is 68-64 this year.
  • New Hampshire took the 2nd half off it seems, 9 1/2 back tragic number of 3 now after a decent first half (2 games over 500, 3rd place 7 back). Overall they are 59-65
  • Vancouver: 1 game back of Everett after winning the first half. Overall 75-52, 3 1/2 ahead of Everett for the best record overall. Magic Number of 2 to clinch the best record in the league for the full season. They will play a best of 5 championship series against Everett.
  • Dunedin: dead last in their division after a not horrid first half (2 games under 500). Overall 61-67, tied for last with the Yankees A ball team. Two teams in the other division have worse record (Reds and Mets)
  • Florida Complex League: This team stinks. 17-37 (111 loss pace over 162).
  • DSL: 5th place 28-25 8 1/2 back.
So Vancouver is in the playoffs, Buffalo could still make it too. NH, Dunedin, and the others all flopped in the 2nd half. 1 of 6 guaranteed to make the playoffs, might be 2. Not horrid, but not great either. FYI: Minor league records don't have much to do with how the ML team does in a few years. For example, in 2016 when the Jays were in the ALCS and 3 years away from getting Vlad/Bo/Biggio etc. AAA was 66-78, AA 69-73, A+ 76-59, A 69-71, A- 29-45, Rookie 37-31, DSL 36-32, GCL: 39-17 (3 games out of playoffs). None made the playoffs in spite of that amazing record in the GCL (113 win pace, but Phillies were on a 120 win pace talk about a killer division). That GCL team has Bo, Jansen, and a batch of guys who got some ML time (Zeuch, Winckowski, Jimenez, Zach Jackson, Fishman, Castillo, Bergen, Lane Thomas, Palacios, and Berti). Berti has been a surprisingly good utility guy for Miami actually (6.7 WAR lifetime).

So who knows what the future holds. I'd rather see the minor league teams do well and make the playoffs, Vlad/Bo/Biggio had that happen in AA (won the title with Romano being the starting pitcher). Hopefully we can see that in the majors soon. Vlad was promoted to AAA so he missed the championship (he hit 402 in AA so I can see why he was promoted).
