Vancouver, B.C. -- Luis Quinones struck out nine over his four innings of work while Tanner Morris had three hits and a pair of RBI as Vancouver found its first win of the weekend with a 7-1 victory over Salem-Keizer on Sunday afternoon in front of a sold out crowd of 6,413 fans.
Nick Fraze started the game for the Canadians going three scoreless innings allowing just three hits while striking out four. His ERA lowered to 2.08 through eleven games with Vancouver. Quinones bounced back from a tough outing in his last appearance to dominate the Northwest League's top offense going four innings allowing a lone run in the top of the fourth inning (RBI single from Beicker Mendoza) while striking out nine. Luke Gillingham went the final two frames allowing three hits, no runs and striking out two. Vancouver recorded fifteen strikeouts on Sunday.
Offensively the Canadians were lead by Tanner Morris, McGregory Contreras, Luis De Los Santos and Spencer Horwitz.
Morris went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBi while Contreras went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored. Luis De Los Santos had a two-run double that scored two as the Canadians infielder went 3-for-4 while Spencer Horwitz hit his first home run with the C's in just his second game chasing in both himself and Tanner Morris to cap off the six-run outburst.
With the victory, Vancouver improves to 13-18 (.419) and keep its modest post-season hopes alive for another day as they head into the series finale on Monday at 7:05pm. Toronto Blue Jays first-rounder Alek Manoah gets the start for Vancouver on Monday.
The Canadians also announced on Sunday that tickets to all remaining 2019 regular season home dates are now sold out. The Vancouver Canadians Baseball Club wishes to thank its incredible fanbase for its support - we couldn't do this without you.
