Buffalo and New Hampshire both lost to walk-offs in the eleventh inning. Vancouver just needed nine innings to be walked off. Dunedin won to save the day.

Buffalo 4 Rochester 5 - 11 innings

New Hampshire 1 Hartford 2

Vancouver 9 Spokane 10

Jupiter 5 Dunedin 6

Three Stars

Third Star - Devereaux Harrison

Second Star - Dasan Brown

First Star - Jean Joseph



It was all hands on desk for the Bisons, they used nine pitchers to cover eleven innings.

Will Robertson had two of Buffalo's seven hits. Robertson had a very hot start but has slipped back, he is now hitting .253. Addison Barger's double was the only extra base hit.

New Hampshire also lost in 11 innings. Devereaux Harrison went six innings, one run on three hits. He struck out six. Just four hits for the Cats. Devonte Brown doubled in the only run.

Vancouver's game went into a rain delay in the middle of the second inning. The delay lasted about an hour and Lazaro Estrada, the starter, came back out for the second inning. He promptly conceded two runs. Then two more in the third. After six innings the C's trailed 7-2. A run in the seventh and another in the eighth made it 7-4 heading to the ninth. A run made it 7-5 then Dasan Brown hit a grand slam to put Vancouver ahead 9-7. But in the bottom of the ninth a walk, walk, home run ended the game.

Dasan Brown was 3-5 with that grand slam. Ryan McCarty and Jean Arnaez each had two hits with a home run.

Jean Joseph had a big game, three hits including a double and a home run, two runs scored, two RBI. Manuel Beltre, Nicolas Deschamps and Ricardo Balogh had two hits each.

Gage Stanifer started and struck out six in four innings. Jupiter scored one run off him with two hits.

Dasan Brown may be taking a step forward. His K rate is declining significantly, and his line drive rate is increasing significantly. You can imagine his character offensively now- putting the ball in play, with enough power on fly balls and enough speed on ground balls. And he will take a walk. I imagine that they'll give him another month to consolidate gains and then move him up. Jean Joseph might be ready to take his place in Vancouver by then.

The organization seems to have good unheralded depth in centerfield. That is important. Funny- I don't have much regard for the big names in the org, but they're doing something right with the less well-known ones.

Iíll caution that the following is based only a a couple of viewings this year - but Brownís swing decisions were still terrible when I was there. It did seem that there was less forced search for power in the swing. Otherwise, Iím in agreement that I believe that if there are success stories coming from the current prospect pool it will be from some unexpected sources. Iíve always been a fan of Sosa at NH for example.

One little nugget of off the radar positivity from the minors - Edward Duran. 19 year old C in Dunedin. With a couple of doubles tonight he's brought his OPS up to .742. Just like last year, more BBs than Ks and, interestingly, he has 6 SBs (a little unusual for a C).

Alan Roden just hit his 2nd homer of the game and 6th of the year.
