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.
