Blue Jays Minor League Recap: Big Nights


Mandatory Credit: Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to today’s Blue Jays Minor League Recap.

Buffalo Bisons (69-61)

OK, before we get to the game results. Dalton Pompey was indeed promoted to the Herd, but he did not suit up for Wednesday’s game against the Rochester Red Wings. However, the other new guy, Matt Hague helped out his new club nicely. He went 3/4 and scored the game winning run to give the Bisons a 5-4 walk off victory. Hague also celebrated his 29th birthday yesterday! Happy Birthday!

Hague started off the 9th inning with a single. He would advance on the sacrifice by Ryan Goins. Then, after 2 walks, Anthony Gose came up clutch and drove in Hague with a shot over the head of the center fielder.

It was a bit of redemption for Gose after striking out 4 times previously. The Bisons combined to strike out 14 times!

Brad Mills started the game for the Bisons. He went 6 strong innings only giving up 2 earned runs. The Bisons had the lead in the 8th inning, but Steve Delabar coughed it up…again. He was credited with his 3rd blown save. Sergio Santos is the winning pitcher as he pitched the top of the 9th.

    Dunedin Blue Jays (74-54)

    The Blue Jays lost in the ninth inning to the Lakeland Flying tigers. They managed to come back from a 5-2 deficit only to see the lead vanish. Not even a big night from Toronto’s Marcus Knecht could help. Knecht led the team’s offense with 2 doubles and a homerun. In fact, he was responsible for driving in all 5 of the team’s runs. He collected 8 total bases on the night.

    Starter Ben white did not do much to help his team out as he gave up 5 runs in the first 4 innings. He would last 6 innings after giving up 10 hits and 2 walks while striking out 5.

    Lansing Lugnuts (57-70)

    The Lugnuts were shut out 2-0 by the West Michigan Whitecaps. Everything was going well for the Lugnuts pitchers until the bullpen coughed up 2 runs in the bottom of the 8th. That was all the Whitecaps needed as there would be no heroic comeback on this night. Lugnuts starter, Miguel Castro, in his 5th game after coming up fro Vancouver, went 7 strong innings. He only gave up 3 hits in his own bid for a shut out.

    Vancouver Canadians (38-27)

    The Canadians lost 4-1 to the Boise Hawks. The Canadians struggled to score any runs all game. In fact, it wasn’t until the 9th that their only run came. Ryan McBroom launched his 9th homerun. Ryan Borucki only went 4 innings after giving up 4 runs. To be fair, the Canadians defense let him down as they committed 2 errors behind him. Only 2 runs were earned for Borucki.
