The #BlueJays affiliates had just two games but they won both Monday night. Dunedin and Lansing had the night off.

Buffalo 6 Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 2

The Bisons scored twice in the second and fourth innings and once in the sixth and seventh to win on the road. Tim Lopes must wonder what he'll have to do to get a call-up. He went 3-for-4,  knocked in a run and stole a base. Jason Leblebijian and Rowdy Tellez had two hits apiece with Leblebijian going deep and Tellez swiping a bag. Dalton Pompey and Danny Jansen also pulled off a double steal of third and second. Jansen had a hit and a walk and two RBI. Pompey was 0-for-4. Anthony Alford was 1-for-5 while Reese McGuire and Darnell Sweeney had doubles. Dwight Smith Jr. was 0-for-5. Roemon Fields was 0-for-1 pinch-hitting for Pompey.

Chris Rowley hung around for six innings of one-run ball as he had to work around five hits, three walks and a hit by pitch. He had three strikeouts and eight outs on the ground. Murphy Smith gave up a run in 1-2/3 innings. Sam Moll stranded two of Smith's runners to get the final four outs, three by strikeout, for the save.

New Hampshire 6 Reading 2

The Fisher Cats scored in five different innings in front of the home crowd. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Cavan Biggio and Harold Ramirez had two hits apiece. Guerrero and Biggio both had triples with Guerrero also drawing a free pass. Bo Bichette had a double in five at-bats. Max Pentecost was 1-for-3 with a walk.

Jordan Romano fought his control over five innings by issuing five free passes but limited the damage to two runs on three hits. He struck out seven to run his record to 4-0. Zach Jackson, Conor Fisk and Andrew Case shut the door in relief with Jackson going two innings. No walks were issued by the relievers
