The Blue Jays minor league system went 3 and 2.

 

Buffalo- The RailRiders scored 3 runs in the 6th and a run in the 7th to pull away from Buffalo for the win. Shaun Anderson was effective in the start but Anthony Kay struggled, allowing 3 runs on 2 hits and 2 walks.

 

New Hampshire- Altoona scored early and often off Fisher Cats pitching, 8 runs on 12 hits. The Fisher Cats made the end result appear closer than the game actually was with four 9th inning runs. 5 walks, a couple of wild pitches, and a fielding error accounted for all the runs. New Hampshire did get a single in the inning but it did factor in the runs.

 

Vancouver- After three days of rain, the C’s and Emeralds were back at it. GM1 Naswell Paulino allowed one hit, a home run, over 4 innings. Hunter Gregory was outstanding in relief with 3 no-hit innings. Hugo Cardona put the C’s on the board in the 2nd inning with a ground-rule double. In the 5th, Leo Jimenez scored on a passed ball. PK Morris brought Addison Barger home with the C’s 3rd run in the 5th with a sac fly. Davis Schneider hit a solo home run to LF in the 6th to complete the scoring. GM2 After Hunter Bishop hit a home run in the top half of the 1st, the C’s Trevor Schwecke hit a GRAND SLAM in the bottom half of the inning. Riley Tirotta cracked a 3-run HR in the bottom half of the 2nd, 7-1. Vancouver added two more runs in the 6th.

 

Dunedin- The D-Jays and Fort Myers Mussels waited until the 9th inning to snap a 0-0 tie. Ricky Tiedeman no-hit the Mussels over 5 innings but did issue 4 walks. Jimmy Robbins allowed 3 hits over 3 innings but no runs. Dasan Brown, Adriel Sotolongo, and Damiano Palmegiani drew back-to-back-to-back walks to load the bases. Rainer Nunez struck out. Gabriel Martinez singled to RF to score Brown, and Sotolongo and walk the Mussels off.

 

Jordan Groshans was at DH, batting 2nd for the Dunedin Blue Jays. He went 0-for-3 with 2K.
