Syracuse pisses one away, New Hampshire does the same and Auburn loses in OT. However, Dunedin and Lansing got the pitching and the W's while the boys from the Gulf Coast ended their year on a winning note, thanks in small part to a rehabbing Brandon League. Total it all up and that gives the affiliates a saw-off at 3-3.

Lansing were outhit 17-8 but still won.  Syracuse too were outhit, and made nine errors in regulation, but managed to force extra innings.  They finished with ten errors and the loss.  New Hampshire and Auburn won big games to keep them in playoff contention, Dunedin lost two but still lead their division.

The minor league season has eight games to go, a little more for Auburn, just one game for the GCL Jays.  If the season ended today four Jays affiliates would be in the playoffs.  The Midwest league has the most generous allocation of playoff spots, eight in total, and Lansing are in the playoffs.  Dunedin and Auburn lead their divisions by 2 and 5 games respectively.  New Hampshire are one game up in the hunt for a playoff berth.

Five wins as the Dunedin Jays game was suspended.  New Hampshire had a big win to keep them in the playoff hunt as Kyle Yates delivered a huge start.  New Hampshire are playing their playoff rival Portland and Ricky Romero couldn't help the team on Friday making Saturdays game even more important.  Yates shut down Portland as the Fisher Cats built a big lead and cruised to the win.  Auburn also won to strengthen their playoff hopes.  Syracuse won in the bottom of the ninth, John Tolisano propelled the GCL Jays to a win and Lansing wins in a team effort.

Three wins and two losses as New Hampshire score fifteen runs, not that Ricky Romero needed them.  Dunedin and Auburn each earned ninth inning wins.  Syracuse futility streak has reached ten games. 

The minor league season has just over two weeks to go, a little more for Auburn, a little less for the GCL Jays.  If the season ended today three Jays affiliates would be in the playoffs.  Dunedin and Auburn lead their divisions by 2 and 3 games respectively.  The Midwest league has the most generous allocation of playoff spots, eight in total, and Lansing are looking good to be one of them.   New Hampshire are two games out of a playoff berth.   Syracuse and the GCL Jays have no hope of a playoff spot.

There were lots of close games on Saturday, Syracuse lost in the bottom of the ninth, New Hampshire lost in the bottom of the eleventh.  Dunedin won in ten and Lansing won in the ninth.  In the ninth inning of the Lansing game, with the scores tied, Dayton walked Travis Snider with a runner already on first moving the go-ahead run into scoring position.  That decision turned out to be a bad one.  The bottom two teams also won, Kevin Ahrens hit a three run home run in the GCL while Brett Cecil and Brad Mills pitched well for Auburn.

Torontoís highest and lowest level affiliates lost, but the four teams in between all won Friday night. On a night of no jaw-dropping performances or outstanding pitching lines it was a mixture of solid and well-timed hits and strong relief pitching that were the main factors in many of the victories.
