More from Toronto Blue Jays Prospects

Even more Tellez in game two as the hulking first baseman went 3-for-4 with his 12th home run of the season, a double, and four RBIs. That moves his average to .286, and Buffalo is looking like a very real possibility this season. Dwight Smith Jr. is on a roll himself and his his eighth home run while Ian Parmley went 2-for-4 with three RBIs.

Conner Greene didn’t have his best stuff, allowing five runs (four earned) on three hits and three walks over 5.0 innings. Wil Browning handled the final two frames without allowing a hit and struck out four.

Dunedin Blue Jays (40-39)   –   2
Tampa Yankees (50-29)   –   4

The D-Jays were limited to four hits and a pair of walks. Ryan McBroom’s 12th homer of the season represented the entire offence in the seventh inning. Anthony Alford was 1-for-4 out of the leadoff spot with three strikeouts and Richard Urena was 0-for-4.

Chris Rowley looked very good, spreading seven hits and two earned runs over seven innings, striking out four to keep his ERA at 2.85. Luis Cardona found some trouble (0.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 ER) but was quickly relieved by some scoreless work via Brad Allen (0.1 IP) and Carlos Ramirez.

Lansing Lugnuts (43-37)   –   1
South Bend Cubs (49-30)   –   3

Another affiliate held to just four hits in Lansing, and the Lugnuts couldn’t work a walk either. The four singles went to Jake Thomas, Ryan Metzler, Max Pentecost, and Carl Wise. Metzler stole his fifth bag of the season for the Lugs.

Angel Perdomo had another nice start, going 5.2 innings with two runs allowed on seven hits, striking out seven and walking two. After a quick out from Dan Leitz, Tom Robson worked two innings to close the game (2.0 IP, 4 H, 1 ER).

Vancouver Canadians (9-7)   –   2
Spokane Indians (5-11)   –   1

The Vancouver staff did well to limit Spokane’s 12 hits to the lone run. Right-hander Andy Ravel worked the first three frames (5 H, 1 ER) and was followed by three relief innings from Mike Ellenbest (5 H). Evan Smith (1.1 IP, 1 H) and Jackson McClelland (1.2 IP, 1 H) took it home to set up the walk-off win on a Javier Hernandez single.

Hernandez also doubled earlier in the game and scored. 2016 draft choice J.B. Woodman was 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, and a run scored. Mattingly Romanin was 2-for-3 with a pair of singles.
