#BlueJays affiliates won five out of six Monday. Buffalo and New Hampshire had the night off. #LetsGoBlueJays

Dunedin 2 Clearwater 0

Simeon Woods-Richardson
sat down 12 in a row and gave up just one hit and one walk over five frames. He struck out five and was equally democratic and fascist by splitting his eight outs in play on the ground and in the air. Connor Law has 47 Ks in 38-1/3 innings after a scoreless, one-strikeout frame. Emerson Jimenez struck out three to overcome a hit and two walks for his first save with the D-Jays.

Alejandro Kirk had two hits and a walk to extend his hitting streak to six games as he is three points away from batting .300. Reggie Pruitt is 3-for-18 so far with Dunedin but added a double in this game. He also has a triple and stolen so far since his call up from Lansing.

Lansing 4 Dayton 3

Gabriel Moreno mashed a two-run homer and added a single to reach .300 and .880 in the batting average and OPS categories. Yorman Rodriguez and Rafael Lantigua also collected two hits apiece with Rodriguez hitting .526 so far in his short Midwest League tenure.

Sean Wymer won his seventh game against 11 losses with just a solo dinger among four hits allowed over 5-1/3 innings. He walked one, whiffed three and got seven groundouts. Andy McGuire stranded two runners and pitched a shutout inning. Marcus Reyes brought his ERA down to 2.14 by stranding a runner and allowing just one hit over 1-2/3 scoreless frames that included two punchouts. Cre Finfrock gave up two in the ninth but got his 14th save.

Vancouver 3 Eugene 2

Ronny Brito had a double among his three hits and drove in a run. He's hitting .306 over his last 10 games, lifting his average by 27 points to .217.

Juan Diaz gave up two runs (one earned) over 6-1/3 innings. He produced 10 outs on the ground. Nicolas Medina got the next five outs and Grayson Huffman got the save.

Bristol 6 Bluefield 4

Spencer Horwitz had three hits and a walk and has four multi-hit games in his past 10 contest and is hitting .333 on the season. P.K. Morris belted a two-run homer as a part of his two-hit night. Miguel Hiraldo and Justin Ammons also put a two in the H column.

Jimmy Robbins took the loss but all four runs he gave up over three innings were unearned.

GCL Blue Jays 12 GCL Tigers West 8

Jose Rivas
boosted his batting average by 77 points over his last four games. After a four-hit game four days ago, he went 5-for-5 with a walk. Yhon Perez had four hits and Alberto Rodriguez had three, including a home run. Dasan Brown, Orelvis Martinez and Hugo Cardona finished up with two-hit games with Brown drawing a walk. Every G-Jay had a hit.

Jose Espada pitched a scoreless frame and Brody Rodning racked up five outs without being scored upon. It's Rodning's second appearance back off the injured list after Lansing placed him there in early May.

DSL Blue Jays 7 DSL White Sox 5

Leonel Callez had two doubles and is hitting .289 on the year. Other two-hit efforts were turned in by Amell Brazoban, Juan Pizarro and Gary David. Pizzaro stole his 23rd base in 31 tries.

Fernando Chacon threw five innings of one-run ball for the win which he nearly didn't get. Andres Garcia got the save by getting the final out but not before hitting two batters and walking another to load the bases in a nervous ninth.
