Toronto’s minor league system went 4 and 1.

Buffalo – After losing the first two games of the series, St. Paul used their seventh of 6 runs to take Game 3. They tied 1-1 before the seventh inning, and Bowden Francis collapsed, allowing five runs on two strokes. The terrible run went like this; HBP, Groundout, BB, 3-run HR, out, single, and HBP. Derek Holland took over with a two-stroke lead, surrendering three runs in the first inning before the next hitter came out. On the board, Buffalo managed 5 runs.

New Hampshire – The Fisher-Cats took Match 3 with a 3 to 1 victory over the curve. Both teams scored in the opening match. Adam Kluvenstein settled after giving up the singles run at home in the first, and completed 3.2 frames without goals. It was good to see him complete 5 to take the win. He continues to fight with his command, 7 fighters walk. Braden Scott (1.2IP), Parker Caracci (0.2IP) and Jimmy Burnette (2.0IP) grabbed Altoona and 2BB on 4.1IP, making a 9. Spencer Horowitz led in the first round with a first-half RBI double. Orelvis Martinez drew a walk for money at Rafael Lantigua on the third. Will Robertson doubles home John Aiello for eighth.

Vancouver- The C team advanced 3-0 in this week’s series with Hillsboro, winning Game 3 10 to 7. Yosver Zulueta scored 5 on 5, allowing 3 strokes to run. Justin Kelly followed him up with two goalless rounds. Jol Concepcion made the eighth inning scoreless but issued three straight runs to start the ninth round. RBI single bag fly, RBI single, RBI single and Jol got the hook. Mark Simon didn’t do much better, allowing a two-stroke double, wild pitch, RBI, HBP, wild pitch and BB before getting the hook. MacKenzie Muller came onto the court, hitting the only blow he faced in her first save. C scored first, fifth and sixth runs as he exploded for 7 runs per second. Davis Sneijder proved the big hit with his home run 3 times in the second half. These are back-to-back games with a home race for Davis.

Dunedin – The Bradenton Marauders take their first two games but the D-Jays take Game 3 with a 9 to 7 win. D-Jays scored 9 runs on 12 strokes, scoring 4 runs in each of the 5th and 6th rounds. Conor Cook allowed 2 runs in the first round and Jonathan Bernal allowed 5 runs between rounds 6 and 7. Seonni Martinez made the save with 2.1 goal-free innings.

Highlight the player

Today we turn our attention to Mackenzie Mueller of the Vancouver Canadians.

The 24-year-old played LF, hitting 7 in the C on Thursday. He picked and scored in the second inning, went off in the third, hit solo from the RBI to center field in the fifth, sorted in the seventh, and walked in the ninth. He started ninth in left field but after Jules Concepcion and Mark Simon failed to get past the inning, Muller was called in to take out the final. Mac quickly got ahead of Ryan Bliss with a punch and a swing. He tried to get Bliss by chance on the first ball before finishing it off with a swing kick.

In 35 games, Mueller owns .212BA with two doubles, two triples, and 2 on the turf. He has three stolen bases in four attempts, walked 14 times and hit 36 ​​times. On the hill, Mueller appeared three times on 3.1IP. Maintains 0.00ERA with walking and 4K.

Groschens and Martinez show

Jordan Groschens

The 22-year-old has been given a break. For the past two weeks (14GP), Groshans went 10 for 48 for .208 BA with 2 doubles, 8BB, 10K, 1SB, and 1RBI. In 41 games, Jordan hits .281 with 5 doubles, ground runs, 16RBI, and .727OPS.

Orilves Martinez

The potential 20-year-old played the SS, hitting fourth. He was sound in three strokes with the RBI, walk and strike stroke. He’s 1 for 22 in the last six games. Over the past 2 weeks (12GP), Martinez hit 0.186 with 4 points, 3 doubles, 1 hour, 5 RBI and 2SB. In 58 games, the O hits the .209 with 15HR, 40RBI, 5SB and .751OPS. The last time he went deep was on June 11, and his only home run was in a 65-stroke at bat in June.
