When you outhit your opponents 57 to 31 and you outscore them 36 to 18 you have a good chance of a good night.  Thatís just what happened Friday night on the farm, with our boys going 4 and 0.



Las Vegas 12  Salt Lake 4

The 51s went east and stung the Bees with 18 hits.  Starter and winner Andrew Carpenter (2-0) threw 6.0 IP and struck out 4, allowing only 2 runs on 4 hits.  Adieny Hechavarria had his 6 error with an errant throw after a good snag on an infield hit.

Travis díArnaud extended his blazing hot streak hitting 3 for 5 with 2 RBIs and slamming his 10th home run.   Hechavarria redeemed his throwing error with 4 RBIs, going 2 for 5.  Anthony Gose went 3 for 5 with a double.  Recardo Nanita (3 for 6) had a double too.  Jonathan Diaz, Danny Perales and Moises Sierra all had two hits each.  Overall, everybody hit safely for Las Vegas except Adam Lind who reached on 3 BB.

New Hampshire 9  Binghamton 3

The Fisher Cats traveled to Binghamton and showed the home crowd of 5,416 what 14 hits look like on an 80 (f) evening in western New York state.  Starter and winning pitcher Joel Carreno (1-1) took his first AA win of the year with 5.0 IP, allowing only a run and 2 hits while striking out 7.  Brian Bocock threw his way to his 2nd error of the year.

Dunedin  7  Brevard County 4

Dunedin continued their division leading ways, besting Brevard at home on a 91 (f) evening in front of a decent crowd (1,005) for Florida Auto Exchange Stadium.  Winning pitcher Casey Lawrence extended his perfect season to 4-0 with 6.0 IP, striking out 3 and allowing a single run on 6 hits.  Danny Barnes earned the save, his 16th.

The D-Jays put up 15 hits on the night.  Gabe Jacobo (2 for 5) had a double, batted in a pair of RBIs and joined Kevin Balli (2 for 4) who also hit double and had 2 RBIs. Marcus Knecht went 2 for 4 with a 2 doubles and an RBI.  All Dunedin batters turned in at least a hit each.

Marisnick was removed midway through Thursday's game and wasn't in the lineup last night. Is he injured?

Does anyone know if the free mlb.tv game is still blacked out if it's a Jays game? I'm getting really annoyed that it seems to involve the Jays every other week.
I want to see what it's like.

     d'Arnaud, Hechavarria & Gose ...  for three guys known for their outstanding defence, they sure have been hitting up a storm in the last ten games and even the month of May ...

I'm pretty sure local games (Jays) will always be blacked out on MLB.TV. If you're a Rogers customer you can watch every Jays game on your laptop though, it's pretty awesome.

I just received an e-mail from MLB.TV informing me that I have a free weekend of viewing. Don't know why, but I'll take some free Vin Scully listening.

I was actually just referring to watching ANY free mlb.tv games. ALL Jays games are blacked out in Canada, and what is annoying is that it seems like most of the free ones are Jays games, which means I can't even see what it's like.

I am very intrigued about this laptop watching of Jays for Rogers customers. I've never heard of this. Can you explain the hows?

Best investment i've made in a while was appleTV and getting it unlocked. Hello MLB network with ALL the games.

You can watch the Jays games (and a ton of other tv) for free if you're a Rogers customer.  Google "Rogers anyplace tv"

The 51s seem to have turned it around completely after a terrible start.  Last night, they won 9-0 behind Scott Richmond with the usual offensive contributors.  Brett Cecil pitched decently for 7 innings, supported by homers from Goins and McDade.  Goins played second base last night and is hitting .339/.377/.475.  He is 24 years old, so his time to take a step forward is now.  He is a good looking line-drive hitter and you can imagine him as decent utility player.

With Cecil and Farquhar pitching last night it looks like either Chavez or Beck will be the obvious call-up today. Maybe if Igarashi gets DFA'd they only need to call up Chavez, since he's capable of 5+ innings.

Given the following, from mlbtraderumors:
<i>The Blue Jays have rejected an offer from the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks for pitcher Jesse Chavez according to Patrick Newman of NPB Tracker. The Hawks offered Toronto $1MM and would have paid the right-hander $3MM over two years. Chavez's agent Paul Cobbe declined to comment.</i>

I kind of hope it is Chavez.
