MiLB Recap – D-jays win 4th in a row! Boyd Debut

1 of 4

Mandatory Credit:

Buffalo Bisons vs Charlotte Knights (Loss 1-2)

Blue Jays prospect Matt Boyd makes his Triple-A debut and looked stellar.  The big lefty pitched a solid 7 innings and only allowed 1 earned run.  The earned run did come from a Trayce Thompson solo home run but that was the one blemish on a phenomenal first start for Boyd.  The bullpen held down the fort and did not allow a run over the last 2 innings but the offense just could not figure things out.  Former Jays prospect Kyle Drabek out dueled Boyd and was able to get the win.  I will be looking forward to Boyd’s next start where he hopefully gets his first Triple-A win.

The Bisons offense just could not capitalize on opportunities against Drabek.  They were able to get runners on but they went 1-8 with runners in scoring position.  Luke Scott went 2-4 with the only RBI for the Herd.  Ramon Santiago also went 2-4 but the rest of the offense was pretty flat.  They were unable to cash in on any of the 7 hits that they collected.
