Here is a review of the major events in the minors for the Jays on Thursday, 15th of April:
AAA Las Vegas – Lost 7-3
- Lance Broadway‘s line: 5.1 IP, 6 hits, 5 walks, 4 ER, 4 strike outs, and now has a 3.48 ERA on the season.
- Zach Jackson didn’t give up a run in relief, but he did give up 3 walks and 2 hits over his 2 IP.
- 3B Christian Colonel went 3 for 4 with a double and now has a .381 average on the year.
- LF Chris Lubanski is the other other player to have a big impact offensively, as eh hit his 2nd HR of the year.
AA New Hampshire – Lost 7-6
- Zach Stewart is having a hard time in AA. He only lasted 4.1 IP, gave up 9 hits, 7 ER, 4 walks and got 4 Ks. His season’s ERA now stands at 7.71 – not what the Jays had in mind when they sent him to AA to build up his repertoire and confidence.
- Trystan Magnuson was strong in relief, going 1.2 IP with 4 Ks and 1 hit and no walks allowed.
- Zach Dials and Daniel Farquhar followed that up with 3 shut out innings only allowing 1 walk.
- 3B Brad Emaus (.375) was the catalyst offensively speaking, going 3 for 3 with a SB.
- CF Darin Mastroianni and LF Eric Thames both got 2 hits, one of which was a double for Darin.
HiA Dunedin – Lost 3-2
- Charles Huggins was outstanding in his start, lasting 7 innings, getting 2 hits, and striking out 4. He allowed no ER but still ended up with a no-decision. He now has a 2.13 ERA on the year and should be looking at a promotion at some point in 2010.
- Matt Daly blew the save, allowing 2 ER over 3 hits in the 9th inning.
- Brian Van Kirk (3 for 4) and Welinton Ramirez (1 for 4) both hit a double to lead NH offensively.
LoA Lansing – Lost 6-4
- Dave Sever had a mediocre day, lasting 5 innings, allowing 6 hits, 4 ER, 2 walks and getting 2 Ks.
- Nestor Molina took the loss after allowing 2 runs, 1 earned, over his inning of work.
- Aaron Loup was outstanding again in relief, allowing only 1 walk over his 2 shut out innings. He now hasn’t allowed a run in 6.2 innings and has 9 Ks over this period. He’ll be headed to HiA at some point in the very near future after these performances.
- Ryan Goins was 3 for 4 while Bradley Glenn hit his 2nd HR in 3 days in the losing cause.
