The affiliates were just 1-for-3 on Memorial Day Monday, going 0-2 against Pirate-affiliated clubs. Dunedin had the day off.
There were some ugly lines on Sunday. Three Bison pitchers combined to turn a 4-0 lead into an 8-4 deficit in the eighth inning. Andy Burns made an error in the inning that helped negate his first AAA home run. That inning also lost the win for Felix Doubront who pitched six strong innings. The Fisher Cats made four errors and allowed five unearned runs. Dunedin gave up seven runs, three of them unearned and Lansing pitchers gave up 20 hits. On the bright side Rowdy Tellez hit a home run and Anthony Alford reached base three times, Derrick Loveless had three hits.
There were lots of good performances on the farm on Saturday. On the rubber, Miguel Castro, Matt Boyd and Shane Dawson pitched well. For the hitters, Matt Hague, Dwight Smith and Richard Urena each had three hits.
After a sweep on Thursday the affiliates registered just one win on Friday. In his first game for the Jays, Ronald Torreyes delivered a tie breaking three run double that won the game for New Hampshire. Daniel Norris had a wild start for the Bisons, Dunedin's bats were dormant and Lansing almost had a big comeback.

Only two teams played on Sunday and both loss. Buffalo lost a tight game for the third straight day, this one a 1-0 loss that wasted a good start from Andrew Albers. New Hampshire took a 4-0 lead but lost 11-4.
Only one win on Saturday. Emilio Guerrero hit a home run in the bottom of the eighth for New Hampshire to break a 4-4 tie. HC Hobson had hit a three run home run in the first to give New Hampshire a three run lead but that had disappeared by the eighth, setting up Guerrero for the big hit. Both Buffalo and Lansing lost in extra innings, Buffalo for the second night in a row. That loss for the Bisons wasted Randy Wolf's best start of the season. Anthony Alford reached base five times in Lansing's loss. Dunedin were bombed as Justin Shafer couldn't get out of the first inning in his home debut.
Three games on the docket. Lansing won, but both Buffalo and Dunedin lost. John Stilson made his season debut, while Miguel Castro got roughed up in Buffalo.
A no-win Tuesday on the farm as the affiliates went 0-3 despite one of them racking up 19 hits and seven walks. Another game saw an ex-Jays catcher homer twice. Lansing's game was rained out. That will be made up as part of a doubleheader today.
