Jordan Groshans came to the plate in the ninth inning of a tied game with the bases loaded. He doubled to clear them. It was more of a bloop to right than a line drive but he will take it. Dunedin bashed out 16 hits in their win. Buffalo lost in extra innings. Vancouver also lost. To add to the Jays injury woes, TJ Zeuch had to leave the game after being hit by a batted ball.

Three out of four wins on Sunday thanks to good pitching. Thomas Hatch and TJ Zeuch combined in Buffalo. Kyle Johnston pitched well for New Hampshire but the bullpen wasn't up to the job. Paxton Schultz was excellent for Vancouver and Naswell Paulino pitched well for Dunedin.

We are approx. 30 games into the minor league season. After last years "lost year" there was come concern that players would come back rusty and out of game fitness. There were stories in the press about sloppy play in the first few weeks of the season. Well with thirty games under their belt, the players should be good to go now. We can give players and pitchers mulligans for the first thirty games but now its down to business. Players who want to move up the prospect lists should start to see their numbers improve from here.

I have tried not to be too judgmental on players to this point. I will be watching more closely over the next thirty games.
