The Jays affiliates are mostly limping to the end of the season. Only Lansing will keep playing past the weekend and all affiliates lost yesterday. Vancouver and the GCL Jays suffered 1-0 losses. For the GCL team it was the end of their season, they lost two games to none in the best of three final. Vancouver were eliminated from playoff contention after five straight years in the post-season. Buffalo had a bullpen loss, as did New Hampshire in extra innings. The game went to extras when Shane Opitz hit a two run, game tying, home run in the ninth. Lansing took a 4-0 lead to the ninth and had two outs with one baserunner on first. But Great Lakes scored seven runs with two outs for the win. But hey, Stroman!
The affiliates won three out of seven Tuesday with a doubleheader sweep being the highlight. The lowlight was a disappointing season finale. Meanwhile, Game 2 of the Gulf Coast League final between the Blue Jays and Red Sox was rained out. The two teams will play this morning in Dunedin for Game 2 and head over to Fort Myers later today if the Jays can force a third and deciding game.
The affiliates lost four out of six and all four losses were of the come-from-ahead variety. The most painful one was down on the Gulf Coast as the Jays are down 1-0 in the best-of-three GCL final. Dunedin's second game against Tampa was rained out and Vancouver had the night off.
