Toronto’s minor league system went 1 and 2

 

Buffalo- Bowden Francis lasted 2.1IP, allowing two runs in the 1st inning, and a run in each of the 2nd and 3rd innings. Sean Rackoski struggled in the 4th, allowing a run in his only inning. Matt Peacock struggled in the 6th and 7th, allowing a run in each inning. Fortunately, the Bison’s offense came out in full force, scoring a run in the 4th and 7th inning, scoring 5 runs in the 6th and 8th innings. With the score tied 7-7 heading into the 8th, Otto Lopez gave them the lead with an RBI single, Davis Schneider drew a bases-loaded walk to extend the lead, and LJ Talley put the game away with a 3-run double.

 

New Hampshire-  Luis Quinones walked 5 batters, allowing 3 runs over 4.2IP with 7K. Bradon Scott allowed 4 runs over 0.2IP. Gabriel Ponce (1.0IP) and Brady Lail (2.2IP) both allowed two runs during their appearances. The Fisher Cats’ offense couldn’t get anything going, being shut out on 4 hits….all singles.

 

Vancouver- Game 3 on Friday. Eugene leads the series 2 games to none.

 

Dunedin- The Fort Myers Mighty Mussels even the series at 1-1 with a late innings comeback win. The D-Jays got 1st inning runs when Peyton Williams tripled home Alan Roden and Cade Doughty. Devonte Brown singled home Williams for the Blue Jays’ 3rd run of the inning. The Mighty Mussels punched back with two runs in the bottom half of the 1st. After Edison Gonzalez’s struggles in the first, he bounced back with a nice 2nd inning,  striking out a pair after walking Nate Baez. Geison Urbaez pitched very well over the next 5 innings. Peyton Williams cashed in the D-Jays 4th run with a sac fly in the 5th. In the 6th, Victor Mesia singled home Estiven Machado to give the D-Jays a 5-2 lead. Unfortunately, Ryan Jennings and Ian Churchill struggled, allowing 5 runs in the 8th inning.
