Down on the Farm: 5/22

It was an 0-fer in the system last night


Portland 7 New Hampshire 6

Up 6-3 heading into the 9th inning, the Fisher Cats snatched a defeat from the jaws of victory as a bullpen collapse handed the visiting Sea Dogs a W.

Two out, two-run homers by Chavez Young and Samad Taylor earlier had helped staked the Fisher Cats to the lead. Simeon Woods Richardson allowed 3 earned runs in 5 innings, but matched a career best with 8 strikeouts. Otto Lopez extended his hit streak to 15 games with an RBI single in the 5th.


Worcester 7 Buffalo 4

Bisons starter Nick Allgeyer showed some definite signs of rust as the Bisons went down to defeat.

After his addition to the 40-man roster and call up last weekend to the Blue Jays, Allgeyer missed his regular turn in the rotation, and had been limited to one inning-and-a-third relief appearance in the past ten days. The WooSox tagged him for 8 hits and 6 earned runs in 4 IP.

Christian Colon spearheaded the Buffalo offence, going 3-4 and hitting his 4th round tripper.

High A

Hillsboro 8 Vancouver 3

Hillsboro got to starter Adam Kloffenstein for 7 runs (all earned) over the first three innings en route to victory. Kloff battled control issues, walking 4 while only fanning 1.

Cameron Eden had a pair of hits for the C’s, as did DJ Neal, who added a stolen base. Davis Schneider contributed his first High A home run in a losing cause.

Low A

Clearwater 5. Dunedin 3

A ninth inning rally by the D-Jays fell short as they dropped a decision to the Threshers.

Dunedin starter Sem Robberse was touched for 3 earned runs in just 2 innings of work. At the back end of the D-Jay pen, Gabriel Ponce fanned four in 2 IP, giving him 21 whiffs in 11.2 innings so far.

The D-Jays were limited to 5 hits, one of them a double by PK Morris in the 5th that cashed in a pair of runners.
