The Blue Jays’ affiliates lost all four games for an organizational sweep (in the wrong direction) on Saturday.


Buffalo Bisons 4, Worcester Red Sox 7


In his first start since returning to the Buffalo Bisons (11-6) from the Toronto Blue Jays (where he didn’t get into a game), Nick Allgeyer was rocked by the Worcester Red Sox on the way to a 7-4 loss for The Herd.

Allgeyer allowed three home runs to the Red Sox, giving up six runs on eight hits with four walks and five strikeouts in four innings. Dany Jimenez allowed another home run but that was the only hit he gave up over two innings, striking out four. Carl Edwards Jr. allowed a hit and nothing more in the seventh and Hobie Harris gave up two hits and a walk but didn’t allow a run in the eighth.

Christian Colon had a big game, pushing his batting average to .400 with a 3/4 game, hitting a home run, driving in a run and scoring twice. Kevin Smith was 1/3 with a double and an RBI while Dilson Herrera was 1/4 and Richard Urena was 1/4 with an RBI.

L: Nick Allgeyer (1-1)
HR: Christian Colon (4)

Player of the Game: Christian Colon

Roster Notes: Ty Tice was recalled by the Blue Jays and Jeremy Beasley and Anthony Kay were sent down to Buffalo.


New Hampshire Fisher Cats 6, Portland Sea Dogs (BOS) 7


The New Hampshire Fisher Cats (7-10) appeared to have the game in hand with a three-run lead going into the top of the ninth inning but the bullpen couldn’t hold the lead and the Portland Sea Dogs scored four runs in the inning to beat the Fisher Cats 7-6.

The Fisher Cats’ offense was very efficient, getting six runs on just three hits and four walks over the course of the game. Two of those hits were home runs with Chavez Young going 1/2 with a walk, two RBI and two runs before coming out of the game for Vinny Capra while Samad Taylor continues his hot streak, going 1/3 with a home run, two RBI and was hit by a pitch. Otto Lopez, hitting .361, went 1/4 with an RBI.

Simeon Woods Richardson continues to strike out batters at a prodigious rate, adding eight Ks to his Double-A total and went five innings, giving up three runs on five hits with just one walk. Graham Spraker added a solid two innings to his resume, giving up a hit and a walk with three strikeouts. Brody Rodning took the loss, throwing 1 1/3 innings and getting charged with four runs on four hits. He left one runner on for Jon Harris who allowed the runner to score on two hits with one strikeout in 2/3 of an inning.

L: Brody Rodning (0-2)
HR: Chavez Young (1), Samad Taylor (3)

Player of the Game: Chavez Young, Samad Taylor and Simeon Woods Richardson


Vancouver Canadians 3, Hillsboro Hops (ARI) 8


The Vancouver Canadians (11-6) didn’t have it as Adam Kloffenstein had a rough go in an 8-3 loss to the Hillsboro Hops.

King Kloff allowed seven runs on six hits (one HR) with four walks, three wild pitches and just one strikeout in three innings before giving way to Lazaro Estrada who allowed one of the two inherited runners to score. Still, he struck out three in his two innings and didn’t allow a hit or a walk. Hagen Danner finished with three innings, allowing just one unearned run on two hits and a walk with six strikeouts.

Davis Schneider hit his first home run of the year, going 1/4 with two RBI while Cameron Eden went 2/4 and was caught stealing and DJ Neal was 2/4 with an RBI, a run and a stolen base (as well as an error). Spencer Horwitz (1/3, BB, 2B, R) and Tanner Kirwer (1/5, 2B) each had a double and Luis De Los Santos was 1/3 with a walk.

L: Adam Kloffenstein (1-1)
HR: Davis Schneider (1)

Player of the Game: Davis Schneider and DJ Neal


Dunedin Blue Jays 3, Clearwater Threshers (PHI) 5


The Dunedin Blue Jays (6-11) lost a tough one to the Clearwater Threshers, scoring once in the top of the ninth but it wasn’t enough to erase the deficit in a 5-3 loss.

The club had just five hits including doubles from PK Morris (1/4, 2 RBI) and Orelvis Martinez (1/4, R) while Steward Berroa (1/4, RBI), Addison Barger (1/5) and Miguel Hiraldo (1/4) had singles.

Sem Robberse had a rough start, giving up three runs on three hits with two walks and four strikeouts in two innings. Julian Valdez allowed another two runs on two hits and three walks in three innings before the bleeding was stopped. Thomas Ruwe gave up two walks and a hit but no walks in his inning, striking out one while Gabriel Ponce struck out four in the final two frames, walking one.

L: Sem Robberse (0-1)

Player of the Game: None
