Wednesday night was not a good night for the Jays’ farm as the only team to come out with a win was the Buffalo Bisons.

Buffalo Bisons 8, Pawtucket Red Sox 3


The Bisons continued to roll, winning their eighth of their last nine thanks to a continued explosion of offense. Chris Colabello rocked the yard by going 4/5 with a home run and four RBI while Caleb Gindl (2/4, 2B, BB), Andy Burns (2/5, 2 RBI) and Ezequiel Carrera (2/5, R) all had a pair of hits while Andy Wilkins was 1/2 with an RBI, two runs scored and three walks.

On the mound, Randy Wolf threw a solid six innings, allowing three runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out three. Four pitchers (Steve Delabar, Rob Rasmussen, Preston Guilmet and Bobby Korecky) went the rest of the way, allowing just one hit to finish the game.

Player of the Game: Chris Colabello


New Hampshire Fisher Cats 1, Trenton Thunder 2



The Fisher Cats continued to struggle with the bats, falling to 6-8 after a 2-1 loss to the Trenton Thunder. Casey Lawrence walked three batters, a rarity, over 5 1/3 innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on seven hits with four strikeouts. Matt West threw an inning and two-thirds while Danny Barnes pitched the eighth, finishing the game. Six different batters had hits with Jake Fox accounting for the club’s only run with a solo home run. He added a walk for a 1/3 game.

Player of the Game: Jake Fox


Dunedin Blue Jays 3, Daytona Tortugas 7



The Dunedin Blue Jays managed to score three runs off of three hits thanks to four errors by the Daytona Tortugas but couldn’t parlay that into a win. Roemon Fields hit a double and stole a base (his sixth) while David Harris and Andy Fermin each had singles. Luis Santos had another rough start for the D-Jays, pushing his ERA to 8.53 with five runs allowed over 2 2/3 innings. Alberto Tirado relieved Santos and provided 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief but walked two while Tiago Da Silva went two innings of one-hit ball, striking out a pair. Brady Dragmire finished with two innings of his own, giving up two runs on three hits.

Player of the Game: Roemon Fields and Tiago Da Silva


Lansing Lugnuts 4, Fort Wayne TinCaps 9



The Fort Wayne TinCaps finally won a game against the Lansing Lugnuts, scoring nine runs and roughing up both Chase Mallard and Andrew Case in a cold, snowy game at Cooley Law School Stadium. Mallard allowed five runs in 3 1/3 innings on nine hits with four strikeouts while Case allowed four more on eight hits in 2 2/3. Pitching well was Jose Fernandez who struck out a pair and gave up just two hits over 2 2/3 innings.

Anthony Alford hit a double and actually scored from second base on a sacrifice fly thanks to an outfielder slipping and falling as he caught the ball. Rowdy Tellez hit a double and took a walk and Richard Urena drove home two runs with that sac fly.

Player of the Game: Jose Fernandez and Rowdy Tellez
