While I was at my own ball teams home diamond playing the second half of an afternoon doubleheader, the Toronto Blue Jays did the impossible and grabbed their second win in a row at Yankee Stadium after losing seventeen in a row and also took the three game series two games to one. I also missed out on some prospect porn today as I worked 3-9 shift after concluding the doubleheader, so I'll quickly recap what went on in minor league baseball action for the Toronto Blue Jays affiliates today. Feels like forever since I've done one of these, sorry Tom.

Buffalo Bisons 9, Lehigh Valley Ironpigs 4

The Bisons defeated the IronPigs today by a final of 9-4 thanks much in part to a seven run third inning for the Bisons offense against the other Reyes that has appeared in a Blue Jays uniform. Kevin Pillar had a solid game for the Herd in which he grab a pair of hits and nabbed three bags. Old friend Brad Mills started for his new AAA club and didn't get off to the greatest start in the International League after some very nice work with Nashville in the Pacific Coast League prior to coming back to the Jays organization. Former top prospect Kyle Drabek allowed one run in a pair of innings in relief of the aforementioned Mills.





New Hampshire Fisher Cats 9, Harrisburg Senators 7

New Hampshire's game in Harrisburg was cancelled in the bottom of the 12 inning with one out due to rain. The Fisher Cats scored three times in the top of the 12th inning to take the lead 9-6 then the Senators scored one in the inning before play was suspended. Dalton Pompey is really starting to heat up in New Hampshire as he went three for four with a three bagger, a walk. Pompey along with two of his teammates were also caught trying to advance a base via the stolen base by none other than Moonlight Jeroloman. The old man on the Fisher Cats Cory Aldridge went two for three with a pair of long balls and drove in three runs. Mickey Storey pitched a pair of scoreless innings in this one for the Fisher Cats with three strikeouts after being bumped up to AA about a week back.

Charlotte Stone Crabs 9, Dunedin Blue Jays 2

The D-Jays added one to the loss column today as they fell to the visiting Charlotte Stone Crabs who pounded out 17 hits en route to the victory. Dunedin starter Efrain Nieves didn't get off to the greatest start as he allowed three Stone Crabs to cross the plate in just the second inning. Reliever Wil Browning didn't help much either as he allowed four runs in his lone inning of work in the top of the 8th inning, Maxx Tissenbaum started the scoring for the Stone Crabs in the eighth with a solo dinger off of Browning. Kevin Patterson's bat showed some signs of life today as he went three for four with a solo homer, the three hit performance bumped his average to .199 on the year.





Lansing Lugnuts 3, Burlington Bees 2

The Lansing Lugnuts defeated the Burlington Bees in a fifteen inning thriller in front of just over a thousand fans inside of the Bees home ballpark Community Field. Youngster Dawel Lugo had the game winning hit for the Lugnuts as he ripped a line drive into right field with the bases loaded to score Derrick Loveless. The Lugnuts received some terrific work out of the bullpen from their relievers, the most impressive perhaps was Francisco Gracesqui who pitched four shutout frames scattering to hits and ringing up four to get the win. Gracesqui was recently promoted from Vancouver and was pitching in just his second game with Lansing. On the offensive side, Mitch Nay had a standout performance as he went three for six with two doubles and a walk.





Spokane Indians 4, Vancouver Canadians 2

The Vancouver Canadians lost by a final score of 4-2 as they were unable to overcome the four run deficit that Zak Wasilewski put them in after he loaded the bases to start the first inning, all four came around to score. Vancouver received some sterling work from everyone that pitched in relief, starting with Mark Biggs, to Alberto Tirado, to Brett Barber then finally ending with Adaric Kelly. Franklin Barreto went one for three with a double and a walk in the loss whilst recently drafted Max Pentecost wore the collar (and sombrero) as he went o'fer four with three strikeouts.





Danville Braves 2, Bluefield Blue Jays 1

The Bluefield Blue Jays lost today to the Danville Braves in a 12 inning pitchers duel in front of the fans at Bowen Field, home of the Bluefield Blue Jays. Bluefield's lineup isn't exactly one that a scout would like to see as the only well known prospect in it would be Rowdy Tellez, Gabriel Cenas and maybe catcher Danny Jansen. Josh Almonte was very successful at the plate for the Blue Jays as he went three for five with a stolen base and a runs scored (he was also picked off and caught stealing but lets only report the positive, okay?). 6'5" southpaw Evan Smith started for Bluefield and pitched five scoreless frames scattering five hits, whilst walking and striking out one, he induced nine groundouts and just one flyout.
