Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Recap: Kratz comes up big in Bisons win


Buffalo Bisons (42-38)

The won their 8th game in their past 10, 7-6 over Syracuse. This game lasted 13 innings and the Bisons got a huge game from Erik Kratz, and a big game from A.J. Jimenez. Jared Goedert, Dan Johnson and Ryan Schimpf each had 3 strike outs a piece.

It looked like the Bisons were going to loss this game because none of the Bisons pitchers were able to stop the Chiefs offensive attack. Lucky for the Bisons, Raul Valdes and Bobby Korecky had other ideas. These two relievers combined to pitch 5IP, allowing zero runs on one hit, they didn’t allow a walk and struck out 4. Good job boys.
