Ten hits and six runs for Buffalo. The hot hitting Riley Tirotta had a double and walked twice. He played third base and made two errors. Addison Barger had two hits. Orelvis Martinez had two hits and after a dry spell in May the ball has started to drop in for him again. Phil Clarke, new to AAA, was 2-4 with a walk.

Andrew Bash went 5.1 innings and he shut LHV down on two hits. Bash has been pitching well for Buffalo. He doesn't pitch a lot of innings, about 4 innings per start, and usually holds the opposition to one or two runs. Eric Swanson had a tough day. He gave up a home run then walked a couple. Mike Mayers followed and gave up a home run meaning Swanson had three earned runs on his record.

NH had just six hits, Alan Roden and Josh Kasevich were held off the bases. Andres Sosa homered for the only run.

Trenton Wallace started and he was taken deep twice leading to three runs in 4.1 innings. Eric Pardinho pitched the last inning, there was one hit off him.

Three home runs propelled Vancouver to the win. Estiven Machado hit a three run home run in the second inning, one of his two hits in the game. Jamari Baylor hit a solo shot in the sixth. It was his third home run in the last four games. Baylor signed with the Jays as a free agent two and a half weeks ago. Jommer Hernandez also hit a solo shot, one of his three hits on the night. Jace Bohrofen had two hits including a double.

Rafael Sanchez started but didn't stick around for the win. He was pulled after 4.2 innings and 88 pitches. Everett scored three runs off him with eight hits.

Christian Feliz homered again for Dunedin, a two run shot and Feliz's tenth. He added a single. Victor Arias went 4-5, one of his hits was a double. Arias had hit .360 in April, but then dropped to .211 in May. With these four hits he is up to .263 for June.

Gage Stanifer started for Dunedin and went five innings. He allowed one run on two hits. Stanifer gave up 2, 2 and 6 runs in his first three starts. In his last five starts he has allowed 3 runs in 21 innings. He has given up 10 hits and 11 walks in those 21 innings with 21 strikeouts. Unusually he had no strikeouts on Sunday. 50 of his 67 pitches, or 75%, were sinkers, averaging 92 mph.

Aaron Munson threw two innings in relief. Munson was drafted in the 19th round last season. The last earned run he allowed was on May 5th. Since then he has pitched 12.2 innings, 16 K's, 9 hits, three walks. Munson throws 4 seam FB, cutter and slider. His FB averages 93 mph.
