The Rest of the Scores
New Hampshire Fisher Cats (26-26, 5th 5.5GB)
Boyd oh! Boyd. Matt Boyd only needed the one run, as the Fisher Cats win 1-0 on another dominating performance by Matt Boyd (W 5-1, 1.08 ERA). The only negative to take from Boyd’s outing were the number of fly ball outs. The left-hander in a flyball pitcher so this shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, but a 3-10 GO-AO ratio would be scary at the Rogers Centre.
