The Toronto Blue Jays farm system maintained a 4-5 record in a quite busy and eventful Monday of minor league baseball.

Buffalo Bisons (49-52)

The Buffalo Bisons defeated the Lehigh Valley IronPigs 11-4 in 10 innings Monday evening. All-Star Liam Hendriks continued his excellence, tossing seven innings of eight hit ball surrendering four runs and striking out nine.

The Bisons trailed 4-3 heading into the ninth but tied the game on a Mike Nickeas sacrifice fly. In the 10th, the Bisons added seven more runs before Chad Jenkins finished them off to complete their 49th victory, improving them to three games under 0.500.

New Hampshire Fisher Cats

In the first game of Monday’s double header against the Trenton Thunder, the Fisher Cats lost 4-1. The Fisher Cats offence was non-existent in the early match, recording only four hits in the shortened seven inning game.

John Anderson lost his second game of the season throwing 5.1 IP, allowing two earned runs on seven hits with two walks and four punch outs.

Unfortunately game 2 of the double header manufactured the same result as the Fisher Cats lost 8-5.

Although the offence woke up for the second game, the pitching staff was unable to shutdown Trenton as starter Richard Bleier surrendered four runs on eight hits in his three innings pitched.

Dalton Pompey continued to demonstrate his adjustments to Double- A going 2 for 4 in the match with Matt Newman and Kevin Nolan teaming up to drive five runs in.

Dunedin Blue Jays (61-39)

Dunedin pulled off their 61st victory of the season 3-0 Monday afternoon thanks mostly to Taylor Cole‘s phenomenal start. He ended up throwing a scoreless 6.2 innings, allowing two hits while walking one and fanning an impressive 12 batters. This start lowers his ERA on the season to 2.90 and pushes him into second in all of the minor leagues with 134 strikeouts on the season. (Editor’s note: Cole was first but Ben Lively struck out four yesterday to take the strikeout lead by one.)

Dwight Smith Jr. provided most of the offence with his two-run home-run, his eighth home-run of the season.
