Two losses and a victory on the farm Tuesday. New Hampshire's game in Reading was rained out.

Buffalo Bisons

Roemon Fields had two hits to extend his hitting streak to seven games. He also drove in two runs and a stole a base but he was also caught stealing to make him 10-for-15 in that department. Christian Lopes is trying to put a trying May behind him after recording his second straight two-hit game. After hitting .275 in April, Lopes has been below the Mendoza line this month.

Jeff Beliveau earned the victory in relief with 2-2/3 hitless innings, stranding a runner for Cesar Valdez while striking out three and issuing one walk. Five of his last six appearances have been scoreless. Chad Girodo got his third hold and Leonel Campos collected his fourth save.

Dunedin Blue Jays

Dalton Pompey saw his first game action since the World Baseball Classic and had a good night at the plate with three hits (including a double) and a walk. He also stole third base - a good sign considering he suffered a concussion stealing a base in Miami at the WBC. Defensively, Pompey earned an assist from center field for throwing out a runner at second. Max Pentecost accomplished the difficult half of a cycle with his ninth home run and his first triple of the season. He also added a base hit for a three-hit night. Pentecost did not catch in this one. Juan Kelly was behind the dish instead for his second start of the year. He had a passed ball and was 0-for-1 in throwing out basestealers. Carl Wise had his second straight two-hit game but is hitting just .194 in eight games played. D.J. Davis also picked up a pair of knocks but is only hitting .238.

Jordan Romano pitched five decent innings of two-run ball on five hits, two walks and a hit by pitch. He struck out five and split his eight outs evenly between the infield and outfield. Philip Walby turned in his fourth straight scoreless outings with two-thirds of a shutout frame. Adonys Cardona had a spotless inning with one walk and one whiff but has walked 18 batters in 15-1/3 innings along with a 8.80 ERA.

Lansing Lugnuts

Bo Bichette made his ninth error of the season as he booted one at short. Okay, he also hit his fifth homer and walked twice. J.B. Woodman also went deep for the fourth time this year but he struck out three times to give him 72 whiffs on the year to lead the Midwest League. Christian Williams had two hits and was hit by a pitch but is hitting just .242. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. had the night off. Edward Olivares and Josh Palacios went 0-for-10 at the top of the order. Palacios has just four hits in his last 36 at-bats.

Geno Encina got taken to the woodshed as he was bombed for three homers resulting in five runs over three innings. However, he struck out six and did not walk anybody and still has a respectable ERA of 2.38. Kirby Snead had the only shutout appearance with a one-hit, one-walk and one strikeout eighth inning.

Great to see Pompey back in action and hitting the ground running. Hopefully he stays healthy, has a good couple of weeks in Dunedin and gets moved back up to Buffalo. Still think he can be an important player for the Jays this year. Palacios is a big disappointment so far this season, but there's time to turn it around.

Lefty Jeff Beliveau who has had Major League success has been pitching well recently - may be able to help the team later this year

Ryan Hissey has been promoted to Dunedin. I assume there is a need for a catcher there. Juan Kelly caught yesterday while Max Pentecost was the DH. Both played a full game.

Lucas Harrell has also been assigned to the Dunedin Jays, presumably to work his way back from injury. He hasn't pitched yet this year.

Is there anyway they move up either Guerrero or Bichette?

I know the plan was for them to spend the whole year in Lansing, but as Mark Shapiro always says "the players will let us know"

I think Bichette has let them know...

yeah they both pretty much have to be promoted imo.
Gerry - Wednesday, May 31 2017 @ 12:25 PM EDT (#342762) #
They could be promoted after the first half ends. They could be promoted for the last month in Dunedin. If either Lansing or Dunedin are in the playoffs they will be there when the season ends.

Ridge Smith will be joining the Lugnuts from extended spring training to replace Ryan Hissey.

C'mon, Bichette is only hitting 381/458/619. He isn't even in the 400 club he clearly needs more A ball time /sarcasm

Vlad is even worse, just 327/422/500 while slacker Bradley Jones is hitting 324/389/568.

I'm sure the 50 fans who show up to Dunedin games are drooling at the thought of having those 3 right now.

Mike Reeves has gone on the DL in Dunedin. Hissey will catch Lucas Harrell tonight. Pompey back in there playing left field.

Jon Wandling has been released.
