The night that was in the Blue Jays system…..
Dunedin travelled to Port Charlotte to take on the Rays FSL affiliate, and came away with a 6-1 win. 3B Cullen Large continued his hot start, going 2-4. Maximo Castillo picked up the W, allowing just one earned run over 5.2 innings. The D-Jays improved their record to 8-4 on the young season.
Lansing scored 4 runs in the top of the 10th to top West Michigan, 6-2. The bullpen was the story of the game for the Lugnuts. North Vancouver, BC’s Will McAffer took over from started Josh Winckowski, who allowed a pair of runs on six hits, and tossed three scoreless innings, striking out four. After Lansing struck for their four in the 10th, Jackson Rees, who has been an early season revelation in the bullpen, struck out the side in the bottom half of the inning to close out the W. Reggie Pruitt had three hits for Lansing.
New Hampshire was on the road as well, dropping their third straight to Binghamton, 4-1. Patrick Murphy retired the first 7 hitters he faced, but ran into some trouble and gave up some contact in the 3rd, and gave up 3 runs. Alberto Mineo had a pair of hits for the Fisher Cats in the loss, and reliever Ty Tice struck out all four hitters he faced.
Buffalo was rained out at Pawtucket, and will make up the contest as part of a doubleheader today.
