I’m back from my sojourn to the Ottawa area for a couple of performances at a Medieval Festival where Wi-Fi wasn’t part of the package. It’s time to catch up on the weekend’s action in the Blue Jays’ minor leagues. The DSL Blue Jays went 1-1 in their two games in the DSL this weekend. The Jays are 19-13 and sit in second place in the Baseball City division of the DSL, 4 1/2 games back of the DSL D-backs.
DSL Blue Jays 5, DSL White Sox 2
Strong pitching made the difference on Friday for the DSL Blue Jays. The club got four innings of two-run ball from Ruben Ventura (4 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HR) while Adams Cuevas was stellar, throwing five innings of one-hit, one-walk ball, striking out five for the win.
Player of the Game: Adams Cuevas

The Blue Jays couldn’t beat the first-place D-backs on Saturday, losing 6-3. Jose Dominguez allowed five of the D-backs’ six runs in 4 1/3 innings. He gave up eight hits and four walks, striking out four. Emmanuel Reyes allowed two hits and struck out one in 2 2/3 innings and Luis Mendoza allowed the final run on two hits with a strikeout in two innings.
Jesus Navarro was 2/4 with a triple and a run while Yhordegny Kelly was 1/1 with a home run and two walks.
