Scores and analysis from Toronto Blue Jays minor league games played on Wednesday, June 8th

Buffalo Bisons (31-28)   –   1
Rochester Red Wings (35-25)   –   3

The Bisons out-hit the Red Wings 9-8, but could only scrape together one run behind Wade LeBlanc. The left-hander pitched seven innings of two-run ball, allowing just five hits and striking out nine. Bo Schults handled a scoreless eighth inning before Ryan Tepera allowed one run on a hit and a walk in the ninth.

Darrell Ceciliani was 3-for-4 with a trio of singles and two stolen bases while Dalton Pompey moved his average to .301 with a 2-for-4 night including a walk. Matt Dominguez‘s double was the lone extra base hit produced by Buffalo.

New Hampshire Fisher Cats (26-32)   –   3
Richmond Flying Squirrels (22-37)   –   4

The top of New Hampshire’s lineup was hot, but much like the Bisons, a lack of extra-base hits kept them grounded. Roemon FIelds, Dwight Smith Jr., and Melky Mesa all collected a pair of hits from the top four spots in the lineup. Rowdy Tellez was 1-for-3 with an RBI and a walk.

Left-hander John Anderson found trouble on the mound, allowing four earned runs on 10 hits over six innings. Chris Smith (1.0 IP) and Matt Dermody (2.0) brought it home without any further damage.

Dunedin Blue Jays (27-31)   –   6
St. Lucie Mets (27-30)   –   2

Conner Greene got it done for the D-Jays, throwing six innings and allowing just one run on five hits, striking out six. Adonys Cardona pitched a scoreless seventh, and after Colton Turner found some trouble in the eighth (3 H, 1 ER), Dominican right-hander Carlos Ramirez closed the door in the ninth.

Emilio Guerrero went 2-for-4 with a run scored and three RBIs while Richard Urena doubled twice. Dickie Joe Thon and Ryan McBroom also produced multi-hit games. D.J. Davis walked and stole his 12th bag of the season.
