New Hampshire 6 Somerset 1
Somerest 12 New Hampshire 0
Left hander Zach Logue was about as dominant as he could be in leading the Fisher Cats to victory in the first game of a doubleheader. Logue’s first six outs were via the strikeout, and he was in command all the way, fanning a career-best 12 over six innings, a fifth inning solo HR his only miscue of the day. He pounded the strike zone, throwing 60 of his 88 pitches for strikes. Logue changed speeds on his fastball, and located all of his pitches to all parts of the strike zone in keeping the Somerset hitters off balance.:
The nightcap was a different story. It was to be a bullpen effort, but starter Cre Finfrock was unable to get out of the first inning, retiring only one hitter before being replaced after giving up 5 runs on 3 hits and a pair of walks. Relievers Connor Law and Willy Gaston were roughed up as well.
Scranton/WB 3 Buffalo 2
All the game’s scoring came in the 3rd inning, but the Bisons came up a run short.
Starter Nick Allgeyer’s command issues manifested themselves in the the form of a pair of homers in that 3rd inning. Christian Colón went 3-5 for the Bisons.
Eugene 9 Vancouver 1
Starter Adam Kloffenstein had his shortest outing of the season, lasting only 1.2 innings in a loss to the powerful Eugene squad.
Kloff allowed 6 runs (all earned) on 5 hits and 3 walks before giving way to the bullpen. It was his second shaky start in a row.
