I'm all out of clever, so here it is in plain, brutal honesty: The pitching stank in New Hampshire and wasn't very good in Dunedin either. The pitching was excellent in Lansing but the offence was disappointing.

Four losses, two starting pitchers were shelled, two pitched well.  Ricky Romero continued his spiral as he allowed seventeen baserunners in 5.2 innings.  Kyle Ginley didn't get an out in the second inning as he was hit hard.  Bill Murphy took the loss for the Chiefs in a parent club-like loss despite pitching well.  Gregg Zaun homered to account for the Chiefs only run.  Trystan Magnuson pitched well for Lansing but Chi-Hung Cheng took the loss.  Lansing is still two games ahead of two teams for the first half title with four games left.

The top two teams in the system had 33 hits between them but only one of them was a winner.  A ninth-inning collapse prevented a clean sweep for the affiliates.  Meantime, a prominent Jays reliever made his season debut at Knology Park in Dunedin.

John Parrish continues to pitch well and is a fine candidate to start for the Jays if an injury comes up. The affiliates were 1-2 on the night.

The affiliates finished one game from Saturday, didn't finish one that started today, and, all told, managed to win three of four.

After a miserable stretch of games for the parent club, the minor leagues provided no relief last night, as only rain prevented an 0-4 record on the day. As it was, the affiliates went 0-3 and our Double and Triple-A teams combined to score one run. The farm system hasn't won a game since Thursday. It was such a poor night that I gave two of the three stars to losing pitchers. If youíre hungry for more losses after the past four games for the Blue Jays, read on. Itís not as painful, but results are all the same.

Four losses.  Brandon League took the loss for the Chiefs in extra innings.  Vernon Wells and John McDonald had more than half of Dunedin's hits.  Lansing threw the game away and New Hampshire lost easily.

After what was nearly a two hour rain delay the Portland Beavers and New Hampshire Fisher Cats resumed their game, and Portland may have wished the game was postponed, as the Fisher Cats had twenty-three men reach base. While Brett Cecil was likely understandably frustrated, I donít think Ryan Patterson will object to any rain delays in the future. Meanwhile, Syracuse lost a close, low-scoring game and Lansing and Dunedin combined to score 14 runs and allow 14 runs, so it was only fair (and mathematically possible) that one of them won and one of them lost.

The good: John Parrish whose six shutout innings lead the Chiefs to an easy win.  JP Arencibia who stayed red-hot with three hits.  And Marc Rzepczynski and Edgar Estanga who combined on a shutout.

The bad: Gustavo Chacin who gave up six runs in 3.2 innings putting Dunedin in a hole they couldn't get out of.

The ugly: Ricky Romero, eight hits and six runs allowed in three innings, as well as Jamie Vermilyea who followed Romero by giving up eight runs in 2.2 innings, ruining a 16 hit outburst by the offense.
