Scores and analysis Toronto Blue Jays minor league games played on Wednesday, May 25th

Buffalo Bisons (24-22)   –   2
Columbus Clippers (26-19)   –   0

Chris Leroux continues to be a valuable depth arm for the triple-A Bisons as he pitched seven shutout innings on Wednesday. The Canadian allowed just five hits and struck out three without issuing a single walk. Ryan Tepera earned the save, his fourth of the season, with two clean innings.

Junior Lake‘s solo shot in the fifth inning was the offensive highlight as Buffalo managed just five hits themselves. Dalton Pompey went 2-for-4 out of the leadoff spot while Matt Dominguez and Casey Kotchman chipped in with one hit each.

New Hampshire Fisher Cats (20-24)   –   4
Trenton Thunder (25-19)   –   6

Trenton was out to a 6-0 lead by the end of the second inning as starter Casey Lawrence was tagged with all six earned runs. He did calm down to last six innings, striking out four, before handing off to Jason Berken for the final two innings.

Dwight Smith Jr. continued his recent tear with another home run, a two-run shot in the fourth inning. Rowdy Tellez was 1-for-5 and second baseman Jorge Flores was 2-for-3. Roemon Fields stole his 14th and 15th bases of the season.

Dunedin Blue Jays (20-27)   –   5

Lakeland Flying Tigers (26-20)   –   12

Conner Greene left Wednesday’s game with quite the stat line. The top right-handed pitching prospect allowed seven runs on six hits over three and a third innings, but with Dunedin committing three errors on the night, none of the runs counted as being earned.

Conor Fisk contributed four innings of relief after Greene, getting roughed up for five earned runs on seven hits, striking out five. Brad Allen cleaned up the final two frames.

Jonathan Davis was a home run shy of the cycle, going 3-for-4 with two RBIs and two runs scored. Richard Urena and Anthony Alford were both 1-for-4.

Lansing Lugnuts (24-20)   –   5
Fort Wayne TinCaps (23-23)   –   2

Left-hander Ryan Borucki is really turning his season around following a demotion from Dunedin. He threw six innings of shutout ball on Wednesday, allowing just five hits and striking out six batters to lower his ERA at the level to 2.12. Patrick Murphy gave up two runs on three hits over the final three frames.

Carl Wise and Josh Almonte both contributed doubles, but otherwise, it was a group effort of chipping away. Max Pentecost was 1-for-4, moving his average to .311 through 45 at-bats.
