The affiliates won two of out three on Memorial Day Monday. An extra-innings loss prevented the clean sweep. Dunedin's game in Daytona Beach was rained out.
Angel Perdomo dominated the Cubs to the tune of one hit over seven innings but Starlyn Suriel gave up a walk off home run. Dustin Antolin also gave up a walk off home run to blow a 2-1 Buffalo lead. Dunedin lost in a more conventional manner, Justin Shafer was hit around. John Anderson was also hit around but New Hampshire scored eleven to get him off the hook and get the only affiliate win.
Two wins, two losses. The Bisons mashed, but the Fisher Cats struggled. The Baby Jays won handily, but the Lugnuts were bested.
Ryan Borucki likes pitching in the Midwest League much better than in the Florida State League. His six shutout innings keyed Lansing's win. Chris Leroux was also pitching shutout ball for the Bisons who won a 2-0 game. Dwight Smith hit another home run but it wasn't enough to win the game for New Hampshire. Conner Greene did not allow an earned run in three innings. His problem was the seven unearned runs.
An extra-innings loss was the only blemish on a 3-1 night on the farm. The good news included a come-from-behind win, a walk-off victory and the number of affiliates with winning records doubling in total.
