We’ve got a pretty full Blue Jays Minor League Recap this morning. All teams in the system were in action. Young prospect, Miguel Castro made his FSL debut Monday and impressed. There were errors all over minor league fields as well. So, let’s get to it.

Buffalo Bisons (73-62)

The Bisons had difficulty solving Pawtucket starter Matt Barnes as they lost 6-2. Unfortunately, the same can not be said for Buffalo starter, Brad Mills. For nearly 8 innings, the Herd could only manage 2 runs. There would be no dramatic walk off grand slam for the Bisons on this night. The only runs came off a Jonathan Diaz triple (he scored on a throwing error on the play) and a Brett Wallace single that scored Dalton Pompey.

New Hampshire FisherCats (64-71)

The FisherCats played two games against the Harrisburg Senators on Monday…sort of. First, they finished off a suspended game that was started on July 27. Play started with a score of 9-7 in the 12th inning. The FisherCats won.

In the second game, the FisherCats fell behind 5-0. They attempted a come back in the 7th, but it fell short. They would lose this contest 5-3. The starting pitcher for the FisherCats, P.J. Walters, did his best to keep his team in it even if the team did its best to give the game away. The defense committed 5 errors in total. The errors proved to be too costly on this night.

    Dunedin Blue Jays (76-57)

    Miguel Castro made his debut in the Florida State League on Monday. The 19 year old worked his way through the Daytona Cubs lineup. He went 5 2/3 innings and allowed only two runs. He left the game with his team up 7-2. The Cubs managed to claw their way back, but the Baby Jays held on to win the game 8-7. Castro picked up the win and Arik Sikula picked up his 31st save.

    Lansing Lugnuts (59-73)

    The Lugnuts dropped a back and forth battle in the 10th inning against the Lake County Captains on Monday by a score of 9-7. The lead changed hands 4 times as both teams refused to give in. The Lugnuts had the tying run at 2nd base in the 10th inning, but Chaz Frank grounded out to end the game. The game saw 3 Lugnuts go deep. D.J. Davis hit a solo shot, Chris Schaeffer hit a 2-run jack and Rowdy Telez got rowdy by sending a solo shot to CF. Sadly, the defense let the team down in this contest too. In fact, the 4 errors that led to 3 unearned runs, proved to be the difference in the contest.

    Vancouver Canadians (40-29)

    The Canadians stole their way to a 3-1 victory against the Eugene Emeralds. The Canadians stole a total of 6 bases while their starter, Jairo Labourt went 6 innings giving up only 1 run and striking out 5. The win gives the Canadians first place in the North Division.

    Bluefield Blue Jays (30-34)

    The Blue Jays lost this game 3-1 to the Greeneville Astros. After scoring a run in the first inning, they could not muster any more. Perhaps the 1-13 with runners in scoring position tells you all you need to know about the offense. Jesus Tinoco started the game for the Blue Jays and gave a strong 6 inning performance. He gave up just 4 hits and 2 unearned runs.
