Toronto’s minor league system went 2 and 1.

 

Buffalo- The Herd exploded for 9 runs in the 1st inning. Two RBI singles, RBI sac fly, two 2-run singles, RBI, single, and a run-scoring groundout. In the 2nd inning, Logan Warmoth doubled home Otto Lopez, 10-2. In the 6th inning, Warmoth stroked a 2-run single throw the hole into right field, 12-3. The Herd added two more runs in the 9th for a convincing win. What was most impressive about this win was the high number of runs scored with minimal power. Two doubles and no home runs. Buffalo went 9-for-21 with RISP, walking 7 times. Graham Spraker, Joe Biagini, and Kyle Johnston held the IronPigs off the board over the final 3.2IP.

Luis De Los Santos doubled with one out in the 9th. Philip Clarke hit a flyball out for the 2nd out. Rafael Lantigua broke the shutout bid with an RBI single.

In the 5th, Glenn Santiago hit a 2-run HR to give Dunedin their first lead. In the 6th, Rainer Nunez hit a screamer over the fence in left-center field, a solo shot, 12-10.

Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to Jordan Groshans.

 

Jordan played SS and batted 4th for the Buffalo Bisons. In four at-bats, the 22-yr-old former 1st round pick singled twice, scored a run, drove in a run, and walked twice. Groshans singled home Moreno in the Bisons’ huge offensive outburst in the 1st inning. He scored when Cullen Large hit a 2-run single to CF. The highly regarded prospect start the season on the IL and played 5 rehab games with Dunedin before joining the Bisons on April 28th. In 8 games with Buffalo, Jordan Groshans already has five 2-hit games and is batting .370. The in-game power continues to be an issue for the young man with no home runs and just one double. He’s driven in 6 runs, scored 5, and owns a .848OPS.

 

Jordan continues to split his time between 3rd and short. So far he’s played 2 games at 3rd and 4 games at short.
