Vancouver Canadians

The Vancouver Canadians played their first of six against The Tri-City Dust Devils on Wednesday night losing 6-5 at home.

With Tuesday’s game cancelled due to weather, the Canadians were looking to improve on their 19-22 record in the first half of Northwest League action.

The Dust Devils would strike first with one run in the third and two in the fifth before Dasan Brown’s two run homer in the bottom of the fifth got Vancouver on the board.

The Canadians would add three more in their half of the sixth but Tri-City chipped away with two in their half of the seventh and one in the eighth.

Grayson Thurman’s wild pitch in the top of the eight allowed the Dust Devils Andy Blake to come home and Vancouver couldn’t add anything with the last at-bat in the bottom of the ninth. Dylan Rock, Jamari Baylor, and Ryan McCarty were all struck out by Camden Minacci. The Dust Devils closer got his ninth save of the year.

Vancouver squares off against Tri-City tonight at 7:05pm at Rogers Field at Nat Bailey Stadium. The Canadians send Connor O'Halloran to the mound. He makes his first High-A start after being assigned to the team on May 25th, 2024.

Buffalo Bisons

The Syracuse Mets used three runs in two innings to start the game and were victorious over the Buffalo Bisons on Wednesday night despite Buffalo’s three-run eighth-inning rally.

Syracuse got six strong shutout innings from their starter Blade Tidwell. The Bisons did out-hit Syracuse ten to five but were three for nine with runners in scoring position.

Buffalo and Syracuse play again tonight at 6:35pm at NBT Bank Stadium.

New Hampshire Fisher Cats

The Akron Rubber Ducks scored two in the bottom of the fourth and used seven strong shutout innings from Tommy Mace to beat the New Hampshire Fisher Cats 5-2 on Wednesday.

The Fisher Cats wasted Trenton Wallace’s strong start that saw him strike out a season-high nine batters with no walks. Seven of those nine K’s came in the first three innings, where Wallace allowed no runs and one hit.

Mace matched Wallace, allowing no earned runs in his seven-inning start. New Hampshire’s Hunter Gregory lost in this content as he surrendered three runs on two hits in the bottom of the seventh to allow Akron to retake the lead at 5-2.

New Hampshire’s Michael Dominguez (0-0, 4.36 ERA) heads to the mound today against Akron’s Rodney Boone (2-0, 2.57) as this series continues. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 PM EDT.

Dunedin Blue Jays

The Dunedin Blue Jays were the only winners on Wednesday night, using runs in their half of the eighth and ninth innings to get the 6-5 win against The St. Lucie Mets.

As luck would have it our Wednesday updates always get the Jauron Watts-Brown starts and he went four innings with eight strikeouts and three walks. He now has three straight starts where he has struck out eight or more.

The two teams played a cat-and-mouse game of scoring runs throughout this contest with the Blue Jays getting the last laugh in the bottom of the ninth when Alexis Hernandez sprinted home from first base after reaching on a single.

Dunedin has now won four straight contests to improve to 24-23 on the season. They play St. Lucie again today at 6:30 pm local time.
