Three losses on Wednesday on the farm. Buffalo did have a lead but the bullpen gave it away. Andy Burns and Jon Berti homered. New Hampshire went down early and made it close with Shane Opitz delivering the big hit but close was not good enough. Lansing lost by a lot. Dunedin were rained out.
Two morning game losses set the tone for a 1-3 night on the farm but the win was one of the walk-off variety.
Two of the four affiliates got in the win column Monday night.
Only two games were played on Sunday. Buffalo were rained out and Dunedin had a scheduled day off. New Hampshire won behind stellar pitching from Luis Santos. Lansing also won with Francisco Rios continuing to pitch well. The winning hit for Lansing was a two run triple by Jake Anderson.
Lansing was the sole winner on the farm last night as Sean Reid-Foley exited after three innings of work. Conner Greene is Dunedin was hit around and Dalton Pompey was a late scratch due to injury in Buffalo.
Is it OK to bunt to break up a no-hitter? Ian Parmley did that in the sixth inning. Having been no hit in the previous game it was the 15th no hit inning for New Hampshire over two days. It didn't help as the Fisher Cats lost and had just two hits. Buffalo enjoyed a walk off with Domonic Brown driving in the winning run. Lansing had a shutout win behind strong pitching by Angel Perdomo. Dunedin lost easily.
If you were already in a bad mood after the parent club's Tuesday night debacle, the news down on the farm won't help. There was a no-hitter, an extra-innings setback after a blown lead in the ninth and a Bronx Bombing in the Sunshine State. The only positive on the night was a shutout victory.
There was just one game on Monday and it was an overtime winner.
When you need a three run home run to win a game, Jon Berti is not the first name that comes to mind but he delivered for New Hampshire on Sunday. Dunedin won thinks in part to walks by ex-Jay Jairo Labourt. Christian Lopes had two hits including a home run. Lansing lost despite a good game from Andrew Guillotte. The Bisons also lost when Ryan Tepera had a really bad day.
Over the weekend Sean Ried-Foley, Shane Dawson and Conner Greene had good starts. Tom Robson was wild. Richard Urena came back from a few days off and hit a home run. But the biggest news came when three Dunedin pitchers combined on a no hitter.
A solid pitching performance in Lansing and a come from behind victory in Buffalo. Your affiliates went 2-1 on the night.
Domonic Brown had two bombs and four RBI for the Bisons. Wade LeBlanc pitched well for the win. The two Davis's hit well for the D Jays who also had a nice win. New Hampshire and Lansing were well beaten. Dalton Pompey left the Bisons game with a reported leg injury. Richard Urena did not play for Dunedin.
Another splitsville day on the farm in which the affiliates won two and lost two. A shutout loss was the lowlight but that was balanced out by a walk-off victory Tuesday night.
The affiliates came away with a split of their four games on Monday. The winning teams put up a 15 under the hit column. Another had 16 but they lost.
Dalton Pompey reached base four times on Sunday and stole two bases. Emilio Guerrero came off the DL hitting, he had four hits. Despite those performances all the affiliates lost.
There was discussion of the Jays assignments to start the season, they seemed very conservative. The players have been doing little to prove them wrong. Conner Greene and Sean Reid-Foley pitched on Sunday and were OK but they are not yet demonstrating they need to be promoted. Early in the season some of the stand-out offensive performers include Pompey, Jorge Flores, Richard Urena and Andrew Guillotte.
It was a winning Thursday night on the farm as Buffalo and New Hampshire won their home openers and Dunedin was victorious on the road. As for the Lansing nine, they were about as successful as Leisure Suit Larry.
