High A

Vancouver 7 Eugene 5

In his first outing since coming off a 2019 PED suspension last week, right-hander Luis Quiñones was brilliant, tossing five shutout innings of one hit ball and fanning five. Last night, he was simply outstanding .

The 2019 34th rounder gave up a first inning two run homer, but threw blanks the rest of the way. Over 5 innings, Quiñones struck out 11, and walked 3. The first inning blast was the only hit he allowed.

Rafael Lantigua paced the C’s attack with 3 hits, while Marcus Reyes pitched two innings for the Save.

AA

Binghamton 9 New Hampshire 3

Austin Martin’s first pro home run wasn’t enough to help the Fisher Cats, who were drubbed by the Rumble Ponies.

Martin’s shot was impressive just the same. Down 1-2, he refused to expand his strike zone, fouled off a borderline pitch, and worked the count full. On the next pitch, he barrelled a ball to LF:

Starter Troy Miller was touched up for 7 runs on as many hits. 3B LJ Talley’s bat continued to be hot, as he slammed his third round tripper of the season for the ‘Cats.

Low A

Bradenton 9 Dunedin 7

It was a wild 9th inning at the Bank in Dunedin, as the D-Jays fell to the Marauders.

Dunedin led Bradenton 6-5 heading into the last inning, but Bradenton struck for four in the top of the 9th to take the lead. A 3-run D-Jays comeback in the home half of the inning fell just short. Miguel Hiraldo went 2-4 and hit his third homer of the season for Dunedin; PK Morris chipped in with his third as well. Nick Frasso pitched a scoreless inning of relief.

Buffalo and Syracuse were rained out.
