Vancouver and Dunedin were Friday's winners. Arjun Nimmala stayed hot.

Buffalo 3 Rochester 7

Portland at New Hampshire - suspended

Vancouver 5 Everett 1

Clearwater 5 Dunedin 6

FCL Tigers 3 FCL Blue Jays 0

Three Stars

Third Star - Peyton Williams

Second Star - Arjun Nimmala

First Star - Christian Feliz



Aaron Sanchez tried to get through five innings but fell an out short. He was charged with five runs and took the loss.

Just six singles for the Bisons, Will Robertson had two of them.

New Hampshire played less than an inning before the rains came. Before the suspension Rainer Nunez singled in Ryan McCarty. Ryan Jennings, making his AA debut threw an inning.

Four Vancouver pitchers held Everett to just three hits. Carson Pierce started and struck out five in three innings. Johnathan Lavalee went one better striking out six in three innings.

The C's offense was evenly distributed with eight hitters having at least one hit. Four players scored a run and four drove in at least a run. Peyton Williams and Dasan Brown had two hits each. Dylan Rock hit his second home run of the season.

For Dunedin, Arjun Nimmala tripled and singled as his hot streak continues. He also walked. Christian Feliz homered, his 13th, singled twice and drove in four runs. Nicolas Deschamps hit his third home run. Victor Arias and Robert Robertis also had two hits each.

Nimmala is hitting .370 in his seven games since he returned to Dunedin. He has an extra base hit in six of these games and had just four strikeouts. It is still a small sample but impressive. Remember Nimmala is still just 18 and is younger than some of the high school players who will be drafted next week.

Grant Rogers went five innings striking out five. He was charged with three runs but only one was earned as Nimmala made his ninth error. Dahian Santos struck out five of the six outs he picked up. He walked two. Santos should be up in Vancouver next week, or maybe New Hampshire.

Omosako with another fantastic performance - 5 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 K. ERA down to 0.36. No walks allowed in 25 IP.

On the flipside - Angel Rivero, 11 ER in 1.1 IP after coming in to the game with a 1.00 ERA. Ouch.

I'll say it - Nimmala is easily our best prospect. Good job on the FO for making a fix on him even though imo he was hacking it decently well for an 18yr old in his first 100pa in A ball. Shows that they really believed in him and that just barely hacking it wasn't near good enough for their expectations.

If he keeps up anywhere near his recent surge (230wrc+ since recall) don't be surprised to see him in vancouver in a few weeks.

Agree with Ugly. Nimmala still far away so lots of room to go wrong but since he's come back, it's ever aspect of his hitting that seems to be clicking. Power, walks, not striking out, lots of contact, etc... He's exciting to dream on.

A couple of nights ago when we had a triple, he was very close to having two home runs. He looks better at the plate already than Toman, who looks completely lost.
