Among the prospects, just one member of last year's top 30 was traded, that being Sem Robberse. Just one graduated, Davis Schneider.

Buffalo took the lead against Scranton four times but still lost in 12 innings. It was not a good day for their bullpen. It wasn't great for the hitters either who struck out 20 times. New Hampshire could only get three hits in their final game of the season. They ended their season with a whimper.
