Scores and analysis for Toronto Blue Jays minor league games played on Tuesday, May 18th

Buffalo Bisons (18-21)   –   1
Toledo Mud Hens (17-20)   –   7

Wade LeBlanc was excellent for the Bisons, but the bullpen was not. LeBlanc pitched six and a third innings, allowing one unearned run on seven hits while striking out six. This lowers the left-hander’s ERA to 1.64 on the season.

After two quick outs from Ben Rowen, Bo Schultz was roughed up as he continues to rehab from hip surgery. Despite hitting 97 MPH with consistency, Schultz allowed two runs on three hits and a walk, recording just a single out. Bobby Korecky found a similar fate, allowing two runs on four hits in one and a third.

Dalton Pompey was an encouraging 2-for-4 with a stolen base while Matt Dominguez and Domonic Brown both contributed a pair of hits from the heart of the lineup.

New Hampshire Fisher Cats (18-19)   –   3

Portland Sea Dogs (15-25)   –   5

Catcher Jorge Saez hit his first home run of the season for the Fisher Cats and Rowdy Tellez went 2-for-4, but New Hampshire was unable to stack their offence together.

Roemon Fields singled out of the leadoff spot and stole his 13th bag of the season.

Lefty John Anderson pitched six innings of three-run ball, allowing seven hits and two walks but striking out just one. John Stilson allowed two runs in his long inning of relief work before Daniel Schlereth handled a clean ninth.

Dunedin Blue Jays (16-23)   –   4
Fort Myers Miracle (22-17)   –   0

Francisco Rios was absolutely brilliant in his second start with the Advanced-A Blue Jays. The right-hander threw a seven-inning shutout while allowing just two hits, striking out six and not issuing a single walk.

Aaron Loup entered in relief and recorded two outs, but needed 23 pitches as he walked two batters. Right-hander Carlos Ramirez earned his third save of the season.

Devon Travis was the offensive star, going 2-for-3 with a walk and three runs batted in. Expect to see him move to the double-A level shortly as his rehab stint continues (shoulder).

Juan Kelly’s solo home run, his third of the season, was the only real bang for the Lugnuts’ offence. Otherwise, all nine starters recorded exactly one hit. Max Pentecost went 1-for-4, moving his average to .450.
