Dunedin had the best showing last night, and they didn't even play.  The affiliates went 0-3 on the night.

Syracuse 4 at Rochester 9

Josh Banks was done in by a tough 5th inning.  Up to that point he had given up 1 run through 4.  However, Rochester struck for 6 runs in the 5th as Banks lost his control and was helped by a Pedro Lopez's fielding error.  Banks gave up a walk, single, walk, and hit a batter.  Lopez's error kept the inning rolling and then Banks gave up a Howie Clark triple and a double by Matt Marci.  So on the night it was 7 runs, but just 2 earned for Banks.  He struck out three, walked two, and had a 5/6 ground ball/fly ball out ratio.

The Chiefs had 6 hits on the night.  Chip Cannon had two (single, double) and Russ Adams had the other XBH with a home run.

New Britain 7 at New Hampshire 2

AJ Wideman got the start here.  He had an interesting line as he gave up just two hits in 5 innings, but walked 6 against 2 Ks.  Mike MacDonald and Jo Matumoto split the final 4 innings giving up 1 and 4 runs respectively.

The Fisher Cats managed just 5 hits on the night, with the only extra base hits being an Eric Kratz HR and Kyle Phillips double.

Dunedin - Off Day

Lansing 2 at Burlington 6

Again just 5 hits for the Jays affiliate here.  Darin Mastroianni had two of them, including a triple and a stolen base.  John Tolisano had a triple and Justin Jackson stole two bases.

Trystan Magnuson started for the Nuts and pitched two innings, giving  up 4 in the first.  Like Banks many of the runs were unearned.  A Kevin Ahrens fielding error kept the first inning alive and allowed three more runs to score (although Magnuson allowed two hits after the error).

Cheng came on in the third and ended up pitching 5 innings.  He gave up two runs on three hits and two walks.  Cheng struck out 5.

Three Stars!:
3 - Eric Kratz
2 - Russ Adams
1 - Darin Mastroianni

I notice Diaz hasn't played in Syracuse the past two days, call up in the waiting for Barajas perhaps?  Just watching the afternoon Syracuse game on, LInd is 1 for 2 with a sharp RBI single to right field.  He's looking really good at the plate, hopefully he forces the jays hand soon.

Other observations from the game, Thigpen looks really bad/uncomfortable right now, missing on a curve by about two feet, he's 0 for 2 with a k and now batting .143 to start the year, looks like he's really pressing..  Other than Lind (.372/.426/.634) and Diaz (.407/.414/.556) it's been a slow start for the Syracuse offense with Lydon the next highest batting average at .244 now that Inglett is up.  Cannon, Watson and Santos haven't looked comfortable at the plate either, not that all this wasn't expected to start the year anyway.

I'm bored, a middle week day off, so I thought I'd reply to myself (that sounds rather pathetic), Lind just hit an opposite way 2 run home run in the 8th, he's 3 for 5 in the game, one of his singles was off of a lefty as well.

Do you know why Billy Carnline was put on a 7-day dl list last Monday, and now he is home in Texas?

Do you know who is actually doing really well is Shawn Camp.

Don't have the stats in front of me but if memory serves me correct he's pitched around 9 innings with only 3 hits allowed and 0 runs.

Is he next in line for a potential callup or would League / Gosling / anyone else still be ahead of him?

Carnline has been out all year in extended spring training...  he's still dealing with shoulder issues from last year... He could be out most of the season.

Lind went 3 for 5 tonight and hit another homerun.  He's now hitting .391 / .442 / .696 for a whopping 1.138 OPS.

Stairs and Stewart combined are still only slugging .623, which is .073 points lower than Lind by himself in AAA.

Is it too soon to start the "Free Adam Lind" posts?
