Kevin Pillar had a career night with 4 doubles for Buffalo. New Hampshire won both games of a double header, while the younger Blue Jays prospects continue to excel in Bluefield and the GCL.
We've come too far to give up who we are, so let's raise the bar and our cups to the stars.
A 2-5 Tuesday on the farm with one game cut short due to Mother Nature.
Me with the floorshow, kickin' with your torso, boys getting high and the girls even more so.
Three one-run losses, including one in extra innings, contributed to a 2-6 Monday on the farm.
I'm not man or machine, I'm just something in between.
Today the farm teams went 3-3, with Buffalo winning a 14 inning sleeper 1-0. Bluefield was involved in a shootout with Pulaski which involved 30 hits. Lansing scored 14 runs, and Dunedin lost by double-digits.
I don't care, I get my share, don't feel no deprivation, the more I get the better it is.
Buffalo won thanks to Mauro Gomez who hit two home runs. Jose Reyes had two hits. Chad Jenkins was OK'ish.
Sean Nolin pitched seven strong to lead New Hampshire to the win.
Kyle Drabek started for Dunedin and took the loss.
Roberto Osuna had a bad start and Lansing lost big.
Vancouver rallied from a five run deficit in the sixth to win.
Bluefield had excellent pitching from Tom Robson and Jairo Labourt and DJ Davis drove in three runs as the Jays won.
The GCL Jays started their season with a double header sweep of the Phillies. 17 different hitters got to start a game.
I am control, there's no way you can shake me, I am your debt, and you know you can't pay me.
It was an eventful night on the farm. Kevin Pillar and Andy Burns made their debuts with multi-hits games. Aaron Sanchez returned from the DL and didn't miss a beat. Burns and DJ Davis were each a home run short of the cycle.
Pillar was backed up with good pitching to lead Buffalo to the win. Burns debut was less successful as New Hampshire lost a winnable game. Dunedin had good pitching behind Sanchez and won. Lansing pitchers were blown out and the hitters went hitless. Bluefield's pitchers, Zak Wasilewski and Alberto Tirado were roughed up a bit in their first game. DJ Davis had three hits but it wasn't enough. Vancouver took an early lead and held on for a one run win.
Going with the flow, it's all a game to me, seven or eleven, snake eyes watching you.
Almost a full slate of games today as all the affiliates but the Gulf Coast League squad were in action. Short season, not quite Northwest League, but definitely not GCL, Bluefield played their first game of the season topping the visiting Greeneville squad. Gus Pierre—all two walks of him—has broken the High-A voodoo and played tonight for Dunedin. He didn’t help much as Dunedin was shutout by Daytona. A.J. Jimenez continues to treat Double-A like Brennan treats Dale in Step Brothers before they realize they’re BFF (Note: this means that Jimenez continues to swing the bat well). New Hampshire lost. Anthony Gose sat today, not surprising considering the shenanigans of last night and the dressing down by Marty Brown. Buffalo lost a tight one this afternoon and have struggled mightily recently. Way down south Ronniel Demorizi, a bonus baby from a few years back went deep twice. He’s got some nice numbers down there and should graduate from the island at the end of the year. The DSL Jays won. Who am I forgetting? Oh, Vancouver won.
Ricky Romero had his third respectable start in a row for Buffalo, in a game where Mauro Gomez hit another home run. Jose Reyes continued to get back into game-shape with Dunedin before he returns to Toronto in the near future.
Come on swing it, 1 - 2 - 3 - now we come to the pay off.
