Dunedin won on Thursday despite having just three hits in the game. So they decided to do it again on Friday. Three hits is the new guaranteed win night. Unfortunately that was the only positive as the other three teams lost again in a complete repeat of Thursday.

A gardener told me some plants move
But I could not believe it
Til me and Hannah Hunt saw
Crawling vines and weeping willows
As we made our way from Providence to Phoenix

The 2024 draft begins at 7pm on Sunday. The Jays first pick is at number 20. This has been described as one of the weakest drafts in recent years especially at the high school level. There is no solid indication as to who the Jays might pick, there will be a lot of moving parts before the Jays get to make their first pick.

Dunedin had just three hits but they scored four runs and won the game. Arjun Nimmala homered again. Buffalo, New Hampshire and Vancouver lost. Buffalo had six hits while New Hampshire and Vancouver four each. That totals 17 hits between four teams.

It hasn't been a good start to the second half at the top of the system. The major league club has sucked players out for sure but even so it looks ugly. The Bisons are 4-11 while New Hampshire are 3-10. Vancouver did start the second half with a big winning streak and are at 14-4. Dunedin have been playing the better recently and their record is 10-7. At the bottom of the system the FCL Jays are 10-37, the DSL team is 14-11.

Alan Roden hit a grand slam for Buffalo but it wasn't enough as Buffalo lost in extra innings. New Hampshire almost played extra innings but they scored the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Vancouver scored their winning run in the eighth. The Dunedin game ended early after Yeuni Munoz suffered an injury and had to be carried off the field. In total three wins for the affiliates.

This is an unusual week. Normally there is no Monday baseball and teams play from Tuesday to Sunday. But this week the teams play Monday through Saturday, with Sunday off. On the field Buffalo held on for a one run win, Dunedin had a nice win but Vancouver's win streak ended. New Hampshire also lost. Errors were a big factor on Monday, maybe it's the fact of having to play on a Monday.

Phil Clarke, Gabriel Cancel, Steward Berroa and Arjun Nimmala all were worthy of attention for their recent play.
