This week in the Blue Jays' farm system featured some notable performances by pitchers. On Tuesday night, Drew Hutchison had a perfect game into the sixth for the Bisons while the Lugnuts' Sean Reid-Foley remained perfect through four en route to an 8 IP, 10 K performance. Buffalo's Wade LeBlanc was named the International League Pitcher of the Month award for May and threw 12 innings over 2 starts this week, giving up 8 hits and 3 runs. Last Friday Francisco Rios tossed a seven-hit shutout down in Dunedin. Finally, in New Hampshire, Casey Lawrence threw 7 innings of one-run ball on Monday.
Here's the show description from Jesse:
We're starting June among the Blue Jays' MiLB affiliates, but we begin with the International League's Player of the Month for May, Wade LeBlanc, and his remarkable streak without allowing an earned run. Elsewhere, the Bisons turned a triple play, Ryan Lavarnway arrives in New Hampshire (though Rowdy Tellez continues to steal the headlines), Dunedin's bats come alive (and Francisco Rios turns in another star outing), and Lansing's entire rotation steps to the forefront. Comebacks and glory on Around the Nest, with the radio voices of the Jays' system!
