#BlueJays affiliates won three and lost four on Tuesday. Vancouver had the night off except for their four Northwest League All-Star representatives. #LetsGoBlueJays

Toledo 7 Buffalo 5

Billy McKinney was on base all five times with three singles and two walks and also stole a base. Jonathan Davis had two hits, two walks and a swipe. Rowdy Tellez doubled twice and Patrick Kivlehan tripled and singled.

Anthony Kay had a better second outing in a Bisons uniform with two runs allowed over five frames. He gave up a home run among four hits and walked three but his strikeout and groundout totals were six apiece. Kay was in line for the win but a bullpen meltdown from Matt Dermody and Ty Tice in the eighth stopped that from happening.


New Hampshire 7 Akron 0

A three-run home run highlighted a 3-for-4 night and four RBI for Kevin Smith. The other 3-for-4 night was turned in by Josh Palacios who is hitting .389 over his last 10 contests. Brock Lundquist is hitting .353 over his last 10 outings after a 2-for-4 performance.

Six shutout innings of two-hit ball and one walk was the line Justin Dillon put together to earn his fourth win of the year. He struck out two and shrunk his ERA to 3.35.


Clearwater 5 Dunedin 1

Demi Orimoloye had a three-hit night and is 5-for-9 over his past two games. Chavez Young was 1-for-2 with a walk and took one for the team but was caught stealing twice. Norberto Obeso prevented the shutout with a home run in the seventh.

Graham Spraker suffered the loss despite giving up just two runs on four hits and three walks. He struck out three and recorded five groundball outs.


Bowling Green 6 Lansing 1

Hagen Danner had a hit but is only hitting .175 for the year. It looked like he turned the corner after slugging .667 in June but hit just .169 in July and is now batting .154 so far in August. Tanner Kirwer is hitting .324 over his last 10 games to push his average to .262. Jake Brodt had two hits after a three-day stay with New Hampshire that did not result in any games played. Griffin Conine struck out three times to give him 92 strikeouts. Prime Beer Batter inning material in the minors.

Troy Miller took the loss by giving up four runs over 5-2/3 innings. Andy McGuire had his third straight scoreless appearance with 1-1/3 shutout frames of one-hit relief. Josh Hiatt gave up the other two runs in the eighth.


Bluefield 6 Greeneville 4 (10 Innings)

Justin Ammons went 2-for-5 and singled home the winning run in the 10th. Leonardo Jimenez had three hits and Miguel Hiraldo smacked a three-run home run, his fifth of the year.

Naswell Paulino pitched four shutout innings of three-hit ball, walking one, plunking two and whiffing three. Yunior Hinojosa got the save with a shutout 10th.


GCL Blue Jays 7 GCL Yankees West 3

Rainer Nunez homered and walked. Hugo Cardona and Jhon Solarte had two-hit efforts.

Jose Espada started this one with two shutout innings in just his second appearance of the year. Rafael Monsion walked three but struck out six over three no-hit innings for the win to chop his ERA down to 1.95.


DSL Orioles1 16 DSL Blue Jays 6

Wilfrann Astudillo had three hits. Fernando Chacon was ripped for seven runs in 3-2/3 innings but three were unearned.



Adam Kloffenstein needed just 13 pitches for a scoreless fourth inning in which he struck out two. Trevor Schwecke was 1-for-2 with an RBI double with three walks and a run scored. Yorman Rodriguez was 0-for-2 and Philip Clarke was 0-for-1 with a hit by pitch and also scored on Schwecke's double.

Hoping to see Kay up with the Jays soon. He was so good in the Eastern league earlier this year, yet has been so consistently poor or mediocre in the IL. I donít think the level of competition is that different so there may be other reasons for his poor AAA performance. Last night was encouraging overall.

With improved command, he could be part of the rotation in the next few years.

" I donít think the level of competition is that different so there may be other reasons for his poor AAA performance."

Kay has said it's the ball feeling different and being juiced and it makes sense. His HR/FB in AA was 2.6%/ In AAA, it's been almost 15%.

It seems the AAA ball is very different this year: https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/the-new-triple-a-baseball-has-made-2019-a-season-unlike-any-other/

unfortunately gave up a 2 out 2 run dinger in the 2nd, but otherwise SWR is killing it this afternoon - 4 hits, 0 walks, 8ks, and only 62 pitches thru 5ip.

ah gameday error - that wasn't actually him that pitched the 6th. he was pulled after the 5th.

That's an outstanding performance for an 18-year old at A+.

Nice to have something to get excited about on that Dunedin team again whilst Kirk slumps (sorry, Kacy Clemens!). Keep it up SWR!
