Short of an injury to a phenom prospect, a generally productive weekend for our hopes and dreams. Bo Bichette picked up some of the slack in New Hampshire, while the promote Kevin Smith (again) fan section got louder. On the mound, Sean Reid-Foley pitched like a top pitching prospect in Buffalo and T.J. Zeuch continues to build up his innings in New Hampshire. Don't look now, but Angel Perdomo isn't walking guys anymore!
Buffalo lost a heartbreaker on Friday, was rained out Saturday, and swept the doubleheader Sunday. Lourdes Guerriel Jr. had three hits in Friday’s loss. His third hit of the night had put the Bisons up five-four in the ninth only for the hometown Clippers to walk off later that inning. Ryan Borucki pitched five and two-thirds, allowing three earned on five hits and four walks. On Sunday, Sean Reid-Foley got his first AAA win with a seven inning, one-run shutout. He struck out nine in the process and walked none. Anthony Alford had four hits across the two games Sunday. Gurriel Jr., Danny Jansen, and Darnell Sweeney homered.
New Hampshire Fisher Cats
New Hampshire won Friday, lost Saturday, and won again Sunday. T.J. Zeuch pitched seven innings of two-run baseball on Friday. 60 of his 91 pitches went for strikes. Zeuch now has gone seven innings in three of his last four starts. Bo Bichette was a homer away from the cycle. Not a lot shaking on Saturday for New Hampshire, however, Sunday saw another three-hit performance from Bichette, four hits from Jonathan Davis, and three from Max Pentecost. Bichette also stole three bags and now has twenty stolen bases on the season.
Dunedin Blue Jays
Dunedin took home “W’s” on Friday and Saturday, but was saddled with the “L” Sunday. Angel Perdomo struck out ten on Friday while yielding four earned. He walked just one. Kevin Smith led the way with three hits. Kevin Smith had two more hits on Saturday while starter Zach Logue logged seven shutout innings of work. Smith had himself a weekend with another two hits Sunday and starter Tayler Saucedo pitched eight innings of two-run baseball.
Lansing lost on Friday and Sunday, and won Saturday. Ryan Noda threw away his walker for a baseball bat on Friday and Saturday. He homered on both days. Not one for jogging, Noda walked the bases (he also had five walks on the weekend).
DSL Blue Jays
Miguel Hiraldo homered twice as part of a four-hit day on Friday. Hiraldo had just the one hit in Saturday’s game and is hitting at a brisk .433 clip in his early professional career.
