The system went 2 and 2.

 

Buffalo- A 5-run 2nd inning and a strong start from Nick Allgeyer gave the Herd their 51st win. The 1st place Bisons got 4 innings of shutout relief from Graham Spraker, Hobie Harris, and Jacob Barnes, notching their 2nd straight shutout.

 

Spraker, strikes out 3, allows two hits in Triple-A debut.

 

 

New Hampshire- The Senators scored a run in the 1st and a run in the 3rd, holding the Fisher Cats to 6 hits in a shutout loss. Brandon Eisert threw 2.1 shutout innings and Chavez Young was the only NH player with two hits.

 

Vancouver- With the AquaSox leading 4 to 2 entering the 7th inning, the Canadians rattled off 4 unanswered runs in the 7th and 8th. Vancouver finished with 10 runs on 14 hits. Parker Caracci threw two shutout innings in relief with Roither Hernandez finishing the game with a shaky 9th.

 

Dunedin- The D-Jays had a doubleheader on the schedule but game 2 was rained out. Don’t you hate that? The clubs only managed to get 5 innings completed in game 1 before being washed out. The Mets scored a run in the 2nd and held Dunedin off the board.

 

Rehab- Josh Palacios went 2-for-2. Carl Edwards Jr. allowed one run, striking out two in one inning. A.J. Cole threw one no-hit inning as the opener.

With one-out and a runner on 3rd in the 7th, the former 9th round selection of the 2019 Draft singled to CF to give Vancouver a 6-4 advantage. Clarke delivered again in the 8th inning with a two-run single, 10-4.

 

Philip Clarke finished 3-for-5 with a run scored and 3RBI, including a double. He owns a .229BA with a .654OPS, 9 doubles and 22RBI in 60GP.
