The affiliates bounced back after lots of losing on Saturday, in fact it was a Sunday sweep. Buffalo scored 17, New Hampshire 13, Dunedin 11 and Vancouver 8. It's just a few weeks but its nice to see some offense after a couple of seasons without much on that side of the ball. Some guys who have been hot stayed hot, Alan Roden went deep twice, Ryan McCarty drove in five and Spencer Horwitz and Will Robertson reached base five times.

It hasn't been a stellar start to the minor league season in the Jays system. But Sunday brought three wins, some good pitching and hitting. Dunedin were most impressive. Down 7-1 after Alek Manoah dug them a hole, they rallied for a walk off win. Buffalo and New Hampshire also had nice wins and although Vancouver lost, they scored six runs. Also while we wait to hear about Brandon Barriera, a new pitching prospect made a dazzling debut today.

Brandon Barriera was pulled from his start Saturday with an undisclosed injury. There is no such thing as a pitching prospect, yeah I know. This comes a day after Ricky Tiedemann had trouble finding the strike zone and on the same day that Chad Dallas and Devereaux Harrison had rough starts.

In better news both Buffalo and Dunedin came from behind to win with strong bullpen performances. New Hampshire lost big while Vancouver's bullpen cost them the game.
