I had some computer issues which prevented me from getting today’s recap. Hopefully, the issues have been resolved.

 

The system went 4 and 2.

 

Buffalo- The Herd jumped out to a 2-0 lead after 2 innings but the Mets stormed back in the 3rd with 3 runs, adding 2 more runs in the 5th for a 5-2 lead. Buffalo tied things up in the bottom half of the 5th with a Gregory Polanco RBI double and Cullen Large two-run double. Richard Urena Richard gave the Herd the lead in the 6th with a sac fly and Tyler white added some insurance in the 8th with a solo HR. Travis Bergen, Hobbie Harris, Jacob Barnes, and Trent Thornton no-hit the Mets over 4 innings from the 6th inning on as the Bisons picked up their 12th straight victory.

 

New Hampshire- Postponed due to Covid-19

 

Vancouver- Spokane held the C’s to one run on 7 hits. Sem Robberse allowed 2 runs over 6 innings, striking out 4. Alex Nolan returned to the bullpen after some shakey starts, throwing 2 scoreless innings.

 

Hit Streak- Horwitz extended his hit streak to 28 games. Spencer had to wait until his final at-bat to extend his streak. He hit a 2-2 pitch on a line to RF for an RBI single.

 

Horwitz now owns a .294BA with 28 doubles, 1 triple, 10HR, 62RBI, 65 runs, 70 walks, and 65 strikeouts in 104 games.

 

Dunedin GM1- The D-Jays scored a run in the 3rd thanks to a MacKenzie Mueller solo shot. Dunedin scored 4 runs in the top of the 4th, a two-run HR from Miguel Hiraldo, a sac fly by Andres Sosa, and a Garrett Spain RBI single. Unfortunately, the skies opened up and grounds were deemed unfit to play on. The game will be finished on September 10th. Dunedin scored 3 runs in the 5th, adding two more in the 8th. The Tarpons made things interesting with a 5-run 7th.

 

Dunedin GM2- Harrison Ray put the D- Jays on the board with a solo HR in the 2nd inning. Addison Barger hit a 3-run HR in the 4th. Ray singled, stole 2nd base, stole 3rd base and scored on the throwing error by the pitcher. Nathaneal Perez struck out 9 over 5 innings, allowing one hit.

He scored on a Gregory Polanco double. Forrest walked for the second time in the game in the 6th inning and scored Buffalo’s 7th run on a wild pitch.
