The Bisons won but that was the only victory on the farm for the Blue Jays affiliates Tuesday.
Buffalo 3 Syracuse 2
A bases loaded walk by Logan Warmoth was the margin of victory in a walk-off win for the Herd, scoring Kevin Smith with the winning run. Smith drove in the first run of the game for Buffalo as part of a 3-for-4 night in which he doubled twice. Warmoth also had a double and scored a run. Forrest Wall walked three times and earned an assist from center field as part of a inning-ending sacrifice fly double play that went 8-4-3 on the scorecard.
T.J. Zeuch yielded two runs on seven hits and a walk over five innings against the Mets affiliate. He struck out three to go along with five outs on the infield. Patrick Murphy gave up a hit and a walk and struck out two over scoreless frames. Jackson McClelland and Jeremy Beasley also contributed shutout frames with Beasley getting the win.
Binghamton 6 New Hampshire 4
Kyle Johnston did not have a good night against the Mets affiliate. He pitched a shutout first but coughed up four runs in three innings on five hits and three walks while striking out two. Graham Spraker allowed an unearned run but struck out four in two innings. Fitz Stadler allowed another run in two-thirds of an inning but Brody Rodning came to the rescue by stranding the bases loaded. He pitched 2-1/3 shutout innings with two Ks. Willy Gaston worked a scoreless ninth.
Austin Martin had an RBI double among his two hits but was thrown out trying to get a triple. He was also hit a pitch. L.J. Talley also doubled in a run, drew a walk and stole second as part of a double steal with Gabriel Moreno swiping home. Moreno had two walks but Jordan Groshans and Otto Lopez each wore a 0-for-4 collar. Samad Taylor singled and walked but was caught stealing.
Eugene 7 Vancouver 1
The Giants affiliate walloped Sean Wymer for seven runs over four innings, giving up a three-run homer in the first. The damage was done on seven hits, three walks and a hit by pitch. Wymer did record four whiffs. Brandon Eisert pitched three shutout frames with six punch outs with just one runner reaching base on a passed ball. Sam Ryan whiffed a pair over two innings of two-hit ball.
Tanner Morris and Ronny Brito doubled. Tanner Kirwer, Cameron Eden and D.J. Neal all had base knocks with Eden and Neal stealing bases. Kirwer hit into an 8-3-4-2 triple play in the fifth with runners on second and third.
Bradenton 7 Dunedin 5
Dunedin held 4-2 and 5-3 leads but a four-run ninth by the Pirates affiliate gave the D-Jays a come-from-ahead loss. Roither Hernandez wild pitched two runs across the plate with a two-run triple in between to take the loss. Naswell Paulino gave up three runs (two earned) in four innings on five hits and two walks. He struck out five and induced three groundouts. Elixon Caballero struck out two in one inning during his season debut. Adrian Hernandez was in line for the win with three shutout innings of one-hit, one-walk ball. He struck out seven to go along with two outs on the dirt.
Mackenzie Mueller had two hits and a walk and drove in a run. Addison Barger doubled in two runs but had a hat trick worth of strikeouts. Miguel Hiraldo singled, walked and stole a base. Orelvis Martinez had just one walk in five plate appearances as Dunedin was not very good with runners in scoring position, going 3-for-16 (numbers which coincide with the Leafs number of playoff wins this year and the uniform number of their most useless, overpaid player).
