The system went 1 and 2.

 

Buffalo-  Suspended due to weather

 

New Hampshire- Down 3 to 2 to the Rumble Ponies entering the 8th inning, the Fisher Cats scored 5 runs and cruised to victory. In that inning, New Hamsphire recieved contributions from an RBI off the bat of Rodrigo Vigil, a Demi Orimoloye ground ball force out with the bases loaded, a Chavez Young 2-run single, and a Young/Martin double steal which scored Martin. Will McAffer and Fitz Stadler provided 5 no-hit innings in relief, walking two and striking out 8.

 

Vancouver- Spokane scored 6 runs on 8 hits while Vancouver scored 4 runs on 9 hits, as the L’s continue to mount. The C’s got multi-hit games from Luis De Los Santos, Sebastian Espino, Andres Guerra, and DJ Neal.

 

Dunedin- A 3-run 1st inning for the Tarpons turned out to be enough to down the D-Jays. Dunedin managed to get just one run on 3 hits. Juan De Paula didn’t actually complete suck. He walked 4 and struck out 4 over 4IP, allowing just a single hit which turned out to be a solo home run.

 

FSL Blue Jays- A scoreless game until the Phillies scored in the 7th inning. The Blue Jays scored a run in the bottom half of the 7th to tie it up and took the lead in the 8th for the W despite being held to 2 hits.
