No wins in six attempts on the farm Tuesday night. The lowlight was Dunedin getting no-hit again in the second game of a doubleheader.

Lehigh Valley 5 Buffalo 3

Allentown, PA
Another rough outing for Ricky Romero (4-8). He pitched 6 1/3 innings but gave up five runs (four earned) on five hits and six walks to the Phillies affiliate. He did have five strikeouts. Brad Lincoln finished up with 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief but was only able to strand one of three runners for Romero. He gave up a hit, walked a batter and plunked one as well. Ricardo Nanita bailed out Lincoln by throwing out a runner at home from left field.

A two-run home run by Mauro Gomez and a Jim Negrych RBI single gave the Herd a 3-0 lead after two innings. Every Bison hitter, including A.J. Jimenez, had exactly one hit. Gomez reached base three times by drawing a walk and taking one for the team. Blake Gailen stole a base.

Portland 9 New Hampshire 2

Manchester, NH Marcus Stroman
(8-5) did not bring his A-game to the mound. He only lasted three innings and yielded five runs (four earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out just one hitter. Lefthander Matt Wright pitched three innings and was nicked for an unearned run. Dayton Marze also surrendered an unearned run in his one inning of work. Ryan Tepera gave up two more in his one inning stint. Only lefty Evan Crawford had a shutout inning but had to survive two hits and a walk to get it.

Andy Burns
and Kevin Nolan spoiled Portland's shutout aspirations with back-to-back RBI singles in the eighth. Burns had two hits while Kenny Wilson had a single and a walk. John Tolisano was hit by a pitch in his only plate appearance. Lance Zawadzki replaced him as the DH and went 0-for-3 with a stolen base.

Daytona 6 Dunedin 4 (Game 1)

Daytona Beach, FL
Lefthander Matt Boyd (0-1) was tagged with the loss against the Cubs after giving up two runs in the first two innings. Shawn Griffith went 3 2/3 innings and gave up only a solo homer despite walking four batters. Lefty Tony Davis surrendered two more runs in 1 1/3 innings and Justin Jackson allowed another in his one inning of work.

Dunedin's first run came on an RBI single by Matt Newman in the fourth. Bases-loaded walks by Jon Berti and Jonathan Jones highlighted a three-run outburst in the ninth. Newman had a three-hit night and Oliver Dominguez had two. Berti had a single to go along with his walk. Mike Crouse doubled but struck out twice. Marcus Knecht had a base hit.

Daytona 1 Dunedin 0 (Game 2 - 7 Innings)

Daytona Beach, FL
Maybe the Dunedin offence was not aware that this was not a nine-inning game. The Cubs spun a no-hitter that was crafted together by three pitchers. Kyler Burke did the heavy lifting by pitching five frames. The only Jays to get on base were Jon Berti and Mike Crouse, who were issued free passes. Berti went on to steal his 53rd base of the season.

Lefthander Luis Perez pitched the first inning for Dunedin and only walked one batter. Jesse Hernandez (6-12) took the loss by going the next 5 2/3 innings, surrendering the game's only run on six hits and a walk with two K's. Dustin Antolin stranded two runners for Hernandez by getting the final out of the seventh.

Greeneville 2 Bluefield 1

Greeneville, TN
Bluefield grabbed a 1-0 lead in the fourth when Franklin Barreto doubled and scored on a throwing error by the Astros second baseman. Matt Dean had two hits, Mitch Nay walked twice and Derrick Loveless had the other hit. D.J. Davis was 0-for-4.

Brady Dragmire had just an unearned run on his ledger over five innings, scattering four hits and a walk while ringing up two batters. Lefty Francisco Gracesqui pitched two scoreless frames, highlighted by three punchouts. Brett Barber (2-2) took the loss by giving up the winning run in the eighth despite two K's.

GCL Pirates 5 GCL Blue Jays 2

Bradenton, FL
Things looked promising for the Jays after a two-run outburst in the first inning. Rowdy Tellez tripled home Koby Kraemer, who was hit by a pitch. Tellez came in to score on a Sean Hurley ground out. Tellez had a 3-for-3 day at the plate. Michael De La Cruz had a triple and Daniel Devonshire had the other hit. Richard Urena was 0-for-3.

Southpaw Corey Gorman held down the Bucs to a hit, a walk and a hit by pitch over four shutout innings while striking out a batter. Fellow lefty Evan Smith (0-1) was hammered for five runs on five hits and three walks over 1 1/3 innings. Cale Wine stranded two runners and pitched 1 1/3 perfect frames.

The starter for your GCL Jays today...Steve Delabar.
Gerry - Wednesday, August 28 2013 @ 12:50 PM EDT (#278470) #
Gameday has now changed the starter to Dan Leitz so I am not sure if it was Delabar or not.
Gerry - Wednesday, August 28 2013 @ 03:39 PM EDT (#278478) #
Delabar pitched the fourth inning.

Taylor Cole has been promoted to Dunedin from Lansing.  I assume he takes the spot of Casey Lawrence who went up to NH last week.
Beyonder - Thursday, August 29 2013 @ 07:40 AM EDT (#278493) #
Daniel Norris also promoted to Lansing.
ayjackson - Thursday, August 29 2013 @ 07:42 AM EDT (#278494) #
To Dunedin, you mean.
Beyonder - Thursday, August 29 2013 @ 07:42 AM EDT (#278495) #
Sorry, to Dunedin.

Norris tweeted he was promoted to Dunedin.  It's pretty well deserved.
