Short of an injury to a phenom prospect, a generally productive weekend for our hopes and dreams. Bo Bichette picked up some of the slack in New Hampshire, while the promote Kevin Smith (again) fan section got louder. On the mound, Sean Reid-Foley pitched like a top pitching prospect in Buffalo and T.J. Zeuch continues to build up his innings in New Hampshire. Don't look now, but Angel Perdomo isn't walking guys anymore!

Vlad Guerrero Jr. had to leave his game today as he aggravated his leg injury. Before he left he picked up two hits but the excitement came after he left. The Fisher Cats came back to tie the game late and then get a walk off win thanks to a throwing error. Lansing received shutout pitching to beat division rivals Bowling Green 2-0. It was a quiet night on the farm for both Buffalo and Dunedin who lost 4-1 and 3-1 respectively.

Buffalo, New Hampshire and Lansing all went to extra innings. It worked for Buffalo and Lansing but not for New Hampshire. With the new "runner on second" rule, none of these extra inning games went long and indeed there have been few long games this season.

Sean Reid Foley learned today that AAA hitters can take care of business if you can't hit your spots. He gave up eight runs in 2.1 innings. Buffalo lost but does scoring seven runs in the last four innings give them some hope? New Hampshire got home runs from Bo Bichette and Vlad Jr. but still lost. Randy Pondler came out of the woodwork to get the win for Dunedin. Lansing scored three in the ninth to come from behind and win.

Baseball insiders say it is good for a player to have some adversity before they reach the major leagues. Players in the majors will struggle at some point and if you had gone through it before you reach the majors it leaves you more prepared to handle it. Bo Bichette is gaining experience at the moment. Bo was 0-4 on Wednesday and is now hitting around .200 for May. Pitchers have adjusted to Bo and now he needs to adjust too. His strikeout rate is 20% and he is walking, just running into some challenges getting hits. Cavan Biggio and Vlad picked up the slack and New Hampshire continued on their winning ways. Ryan Borucki pitched well but had some umpire trouble, the Bisons lost. Dunedin lost in extras while the Lansing hitters not named Kevin Smith were quiet. That left Zach Logue the loser after his best start as a pro.
