Toronto’s minor league system went 1 and 4.

 

Buffalo- The Mets scored one run over 3 innings off Bowden Francis. Mike Ellenbest put the first two batters of the 4th inning on with a walk and a single before escaping with a double play and strikeout. He wasn’t so lucky in the 5th as the Mets struck for 3 runs off the 27-yr-old righty. Brandon Eisert threw 1.2 scoreless innings in relief of Ellenbest. Graham Spraker didn’t have his best stuff, allowing two runs in the 7th. In the 5th, the Herd’s Rafael Lantigua hit his 1st Triple-A home run and Otto Lopez singled home Colton Shaver, 2-1. In the 7th, Logan Warmoth singled and stole 2nd base, and Chavez Young walked and stole 2nd base to set the stage for Vinny Capra. With Warmoth at 3rd and Young at 2nd base, Vinny hit his 4th homerun to give Buffalo a 5-4 lead.

 

New Hampshire- The Fisher Cats scored 1 run on 7 hits. Andrew Moore allowed 3 runs on 7 hits over 5IP. Sean Wymer made his AA debut, allowing a run on a solo home run in the 6th inning. JAke Elliott allowed one run over 3 innings on one hit.

 

Vancouver- The Emeralds hold the C’s to two runs on 5 hits while scoring 4 runs on 7 hits. Chad Dallas walked 5 batters and was fortunate he allowed just one run, a solo home run, over 3 innings. Tory Watson allowed two runs on 3 hits over 3 innings. 5th round pick, Mason Fluharty, allowed one run on a hit, a walk, and two K in his debut. Jol Concepcion threw a perfect 8th to finish the game.

 

Dunedin- The D-Jays Dylan Rock hit the 1st professional home run in the 1st inning. In the 4th inning, Roque Salinas hit a 2-run home run. In the 6th, Ryan McCarty hit his first professional double, driving in the first 3RBI of his career, and Alan Roden doubled (1st double) home McCarty. Yondrei Rojas allowed 4 runs on 6 hits, striking out 3 batters. Ryan Chasse walked 3 batters and picked up the win in his first professional appearance, throwing 1.1 scoreless innings.
