#BlueJays affiliates were 2-5 Tuesday night. Lansing had the night off. #LetsGoBlueJays


Indianapolis 5 Buffalo 2

Sean Reid-Foley finished an out shy of five innings as he allowed two runs on five hits, two walks and a hit by pitch but matched his baserunner total with eight strikeouts. Corey Copping stranded two runners for Reid-Foley but took the loss after being stung by an unearned run. Matt Dermody could not strand a runner for Copping and was victimized for two unearned runs. Ty Tice struck out two in a shutout ninth.

Bo Bichette, Socrates Brito, Anthony Alford all singled while Andy Burns had a double to go with his base knock. Reese McGuire was hit by a pitch but Patrick Kivlehan, Richard Urena, Jonathan Davis and Alen Hanson were hitless in an aggregate 13 at-bats.


Binghamton 6 New Hampshire 3

Hector Perez was punked for five runs over five innings on eight hits and three walks. He gave up a homer but struck out four. Jake Fishman worked two innings of one-hit ball while whiffing two. Danny Young yielded the other run on two hits but whiffed one. Vinny Nittoli worked a one-hit ninth with one punchout.

Josh Palacios was 3-for-4 while Santiago Espinal, Riley Adams, Chad Spanberger and Christian Williams had two-hit efforts. Brock Lundquist had a hit but Forrest Wall, Kevin Smith and Logan Warmoth were 0-for-4.


Dunedin 6 Tampa 4 - Game 1 (10 Innings)

Kacy Clemens capped off a three-run comeback with a two-run walk-off home run to win it for Dunedin in the completion of this suspended game. A Cal Stevenson RBI double in the eighth sent the game into the extra frame. Ryan Noda had an RBI double and Alejandro Kirk had an RBI single. Jesus Navarro had three hits and Demi Orimoloye had two. Kevin Vicuna had a hit. Samad Taylor was 0-for-4.

T.J. Zeuch lasted just 4-2/3 innings and gave up all four runs on six hits and a walk. He struck out five and all eight outs in play were confined to the infield. Emerson Jimenez stranded a pair of Zeuch by getting the final out of the fifth. Justin Dillon worked the final five innings and allowed just three hits while whiffing five to get the win.


Tampa 6 Dunedin 5 - Game 2 (7 Innings)

The Yankees affiliate turned the tables by exploding for six runs in the seventh inning to wipe out a 4-0 deficit. Brad Wilson blew the save and took the loss as he was charged for two runs on three hits. He struck out three but allowed three inherited runners from Kyle Weatherly to score. Weatherly could not record an out as he was charged with four runs on two hits and two walks. That spoiled a solid start from Maximo Castillo who scattered two hits and two walks while striking out five. Connor Law followed that up by striking out the side in the sixth.

Cal Stevenson had three hits that included a triple and also stole a base. Samad Taylor tripled, had a sac fly and drove in a pair. Jesus Navarro had an RBI double. Demi Orimoloye singled and stole a base.


Eugene 6 Vancouver 5 (10 Innings)

Gage Burland blew the save in the ninth and took the loss in the 10th as he allowed three runs over the final two innings on three hits and a walk while ringing up three. Juan Diaz was dinged for two unearned runs among three allowed over six frames. He allowed just two hits and a walk and recorded three strikeouts over six frames. Juan Nunez navigated his away around three hits and a walk with one strikeout over two frames.

Tanner Morris had three hits that included a double but committed two errors at second. Will Robertson had a pair of knocks. Cameron Eden singled and walked twice while Trevor Schwecke and McGregory Contreras had a knock and a walk. Luis De Los Santos doubled in his C's debut, Brett Wright had an extra-base hit as did Yorman Rodriguez. Dominic Abbadessa walked twice and swiped a bag but Jesus Lopez was 0-for-5. More details right here.


Elizabethton 3 Bluefield 2

The Twins walked off the Jays with a come-from-behind victory in the Jays Appy League opener. Yunior Hinojosa gave up two runs in the ninth on two hits and a walk, striking out one to take the loss. Roither Hernandez was charged with just one run over five frames on hits and two walks while racking up four Ks. Meliton Reyes plunked a batter but struck out two over two scoreless innings. Luis Alvarez allowed a walk but nothing else in the eighth.

Eric Rivera doubled home the tying run in the eighth before scoring the go-ahead run on a wild pitch. Rivera also heard ball four once. Miguel Hiraldo and P.K. Morris had the other base hits. Steward Berroa walked twice and stole a base. Leonardo Jimenez and Angel Camacho had free passes. Addison Barger, Spencer Horwitz and Javy Guerra were a combined 0-for-12.


DSL Blue Jays 5 DSL Orioles1 3

Adrian Montero drove in the first Jays runs with an RBI groundout in the second to tie the game at 1-1 before he tripled home the go-ahead run in the fourth. Wilfrann Astudillo and Gabriel Martinez doubled in the other two runs after a wild pitch scored the second run of the frame. Juan Pizarro had a two-hit game that included a triple. Gustavo Ruiz added a double.

Soenni Martinez wild pitched the game's first run but went four innings and scattered two hits and two walks while striking out six. The win went to Winder Garcia (a Win-win!) as he got through two innings of scoreless ball with one hit, one walk and three strikeouts on his line. Raudy Garcia gave up a run in two-thirds of an inning and Francis Mercedes gave up another in two innings. Both Garcia and Mercedes walked three but Mercedes whiffed four while Garcia had only one. Mercedes stranded two of three runners but left a runner for Gerardo Santana who struck out the final batter of the game for the save, stranding a runner.

A good start for Roiter Hernandez. The site Future Blue Jays had a write up on Bluefield. Some good players there. Power arms. R Hernandez hit 100 mph last year a few times. He needs to stay healthy and do other things. SP now but maybe a BP power arm later.

This article on Biggio's plate discipline is encouraging.

Waiting for the GCL, maybe later this week. I really like many position players on last years DSL team.Looks like they will play for the GCL team.

Yeah, the Biggio story bodes well.

On the other hand, the 1st line of the article shows the dichotomy of how at least one outside observer views the Jays and most Jays fans view the Jays:

"Itís an exciting time to be a Blue Jays fan."

The two Bluefield pitchers I mentioned yesterday as worth following both played tonight and combined for a shutout in a 6-0 victory.

Yes, Estrada and Paulino both pitched very well for Bluefield, and the Canadian guy from Brock University that I mentioned, Alex Nolan, pitched 5 shutout innings for Vancouver in his pro debut. Nice start from Zach Logue tonight as well.

Pannone had a great 4 inning start for Buffalo with 8 K's, no walks, and only 1 hit allowed, and Zach Jackson had another good relief appearance. For the last 6 weeks, Jackson has pitched 21 1/3 innings in 13 appearances, allowing only 8 hits and 7 walks, 3 earned runs and has 21 K's. We'll probably see him in Toronto this year.

I am much more optimistic about this Zach Jackson than the last one! Glad to see Nolan start off really well too.
