#BlueJays affiliates won two and lost two on Monday. New Hampshire, Dunedin, Bluefield and the GCL Jays had the night off.

Lehigh Valley 2 Buffalo 0

Thomas Pannone served up a two-run home in the first and that was enough for him to be saddled with the loss. He pitched 6-2/3 innings and gave up two hits and three walks while striking out six. Danny Barnes struck out three over 1-1/3 innings of one-hit ball. Jesus Fernandez struck out two in a perfect ninth.

Danny Jansen turned in the only two-hit game for the Herd. Anthony Alford doubled for the only extra-base hit. Alford also threw out a runner at first from center field. Jonathan Davis and Reese McGuire had the other base hits.

Lansing 8 Dayton 3

A six-run sixth was all Lansing needed to put this one in the win column. An RBI single by Chavez Young, a two-run knock by Ryan Noda, a two-run triple by Chad Spanberger  and a sacrifice fly by Norberto Obeso produced the scoring in the sixth. A Spanberger sac fly in the seventh and an Owen Spiwak RBI double in the ninth scored the other runs. Young had two hits, a walk and a stolen base. Samad Taylor singled, walked twice and stole two bases.

Maximo Castillo pitched six shutout innings of seven-hit ball, walking two and striking out four. Andrew Deramo gave up three runs in 1-1/3 innings. Dalton Rodriguez got the final five outs.

Eugene 5 Vancouver 3

Elio Silva surrendered all five runs in six innings of work as the C's saw their three-game winning streak come to an end. Justin Watts (1.2IP) and Connor Law (1.1IP) finished up with scoreless relief.

Sterling Guzman homered and had an RBI groundout. Christopher Bec's sacrifice fly produced the first Vancouver run. McGregory Contreras and Jake Brodt had two hits each.

DSL Blue Jays 9 DSL Orioles 2

The Jays booted field goals in the second, third and ninth innings to ostracize the O's. Jose Rivas, Rainer Nunez, Pedro Hurtado and Erickvi Celedonio all had two hits apiece. Miguel Hiraldo was 1-for-5.

Lazaro Estrada was one out away from qualifying for the victory. He gave up two runs on two hits and two walks while whiffing seven. Sergio Leon stranded the bases loaded for Estrada. He gave up two runs in his 1-1/3 innings but was credited with the win. Jose Brito walked one and struck out five over two shutout innings. Christian Reyes walked one and whiffed two in a scoreless ninth.
