New Hampshire recorded 12 hits on the day, getting a strong contribution from the top three batters in their lineup. Roemon Fields went 3-for-5 with a run scored out of the leadoff spot and second baseman Jon Berti continued his strong season by going 2-for-3 with two RBIs and a walk. Dwight Smith Jr. added two RBIs of his own batting third and stole his first base of the season.
Toronto’s top power-hitting prospect Rowdy Tellez went 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly RBI, bringing his average down to .16o.
Dominican right-hander Luis Santos gave the Fisher Cats just enough in his start, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks over 5.0 innings pitched. Daniel Schlereth (1.0 IP, 2 H, 1 ER) and Murphy Smith (2.0 IP, 3 H, 0 ER) bridged the gap to John Stilson, who earned the win with two innings of hitless ball.
Hi-A Dunedin Blue Jays – High-upside left-hander Ryan Borucki will get the ball for Dunedin on Tuesday against the Tampa Yankees and Gabriel Encinas. It hasn’t been a smooth start for Borucki, however, who owns a 10.22 ERA through his first three games (12.1 IP). The Blue Jays should have plenty of patience with him over the coming seasons, but look for him to round into form here over the coming starts.
Single-A Lansing Lugnuts – The 8-7 Lugnuts turn to the young Mexican right-hander Francisco Rios (0-0, 2.13 ERA) on Tuesday against the Beloit Snappers, who are scheduled to start Florida State University alumnus Boomer Biegalski (2-0, 3.12 ERA).
