Buffalo Bisons (24-19)

With Thursday’s 4-2 win against Louisville the Bisons are in 1st place by 1 game with 2 games in hand. The Tweet from @BuffaloBisons says just about everything you need to know about this game.

Of note Brad Glenn (is Glenn a later bloomer) drove in 2 RBI and now has 5 in his 7 games since being promoted. Jonathan Diaz had a solid day at the plate…see tweet below.

New Hampshire Fisher Cats (16-30)

The Fisher Cats got a strong pitching performance from Matt Boyd to end their 11-game losing streak and are now 5-17 in May. Boyd has struggled since his promotion but has pitched better his last 2 times out. Boyd allowed 1 run, on 1 hit, over 6.0IP in Thursday 3-1 victory over the Reading Fighting Phils. Ryan Schimpf supplied all the offence the Fisher Cats would need in this one with a 2-run home run, his 8th.

Dunedin Blue Jays (33-13)

The D-Jays slugged their way to a 7-5 victory over Fort Myers and now hold a 4-game lead over Lakeland Flying Tigers for first place. The D-Jays will face the Flying Tigers for a doubleheader on Saturday and an afternoon game on Sunday. Kendall Graveman picked up his 3rd win and struck out 5 over 5.2IP.

Dalton Pompey got 2 hits and walk and I am wondering why he hasn’t gotten called up to New Hampshire yet. Dwight Smith Jr. hit his 4th triple and drew a walk, which was his 7th in games and he now has 22 BB and 22K. Emilio Guerrero and Derrick Chung each had two hits as Chung continues to swing a hot bat. Chung now has 17 hits in his past 10, with 7 multi-hit games in that span.

Lansing Lugnuts (23-23)

The Lugnuts dropped to .500 with a 3-1 loss to Fort Wayne TinCaps. The Lugnuts were held in check with zero extra base hits, but were able to draw 7 walks; unfortunately, they were 1-11 with RISP.
