You know what makes you feel like an idiot?  When you accidentally delete a Minor League Report, mere seconds before publishing it.  No, I hadn't saved a draft.  Yes, I know how important it is to do so.  Thanks for mentioning it.

It wasnít a very memorable night on the farm as the affiliates went 1-3 and were outscored 26-20 over the four games. Despite scoring twenty runs there werenít too many noteworthy performances by the offence and several starters struggled, including one who didnít make it out of the third inning. In between two strikeouts Travis Snider showed he might be slowly breaking out of his slump. Also, somewhat sad news out of Lehigh Valley as a former Blue Jay finds himself out of work.

All of the affiliates had the lumber going on Thursday.  The only team not to record double digits in hits were the Lugnuts who had nine, three of them and two triples for Kevin Ahrens.  Justin Jackson was back to help the offense get going.  New Hampshire had fourteen hits with most of the hitters contributing.  Syracuse and Dunedin had twelve and ten hits respectively but both lost due to poor pitching.

With Syrauseís game postponed, the affiliates went 2-1 yesterday. New Hampshire won at home, but the key pitching matchups were found in the lower minors. In Dunedin R. Gonzalez faced off against R. Gonzalez, while Lansing travelled to Clinton for a duel between Kyle Ginley and Neftali Feliz that did not disappoint.

The Chiefs want Adam Lind back, they only had two hits in a loss.  New Hampshire weren't much better, they had three hits through eight innings before doubling their hit total in the ninth and losing 8-1.  Lansing were down 6-0 after two innings, and 13-0 after five, and lost as the Lumber Kings lived up to their name.  Dunedin saved the day by taking the lead in the top of the ninth before Connor Falkenbach had to work around two errors and an attempted double steal to get the save.

Two and two on the day.  Syracuse and Dunedin mirrored their parent by losing and getting five and three hits respectively.  Starters David Purcey and Gus Chacin could not be blamed for the losses.  New Hampshire won behind a good start from Ricky Romero and a first star performance by Chris Gutierrez.  Lansing scored two in the eighth to record a come from behind win.

Not one starter on the farm went five innings yesterday and only one went as long as four innings. Regardless, the affiliates went 3-1 and the one starter who went longer than four innings was the one who had the outing to forget.
