April 6 Minor League Report


Buffalo Bisons (3-0)

The Bisons improve their record to a perfect 3-0 with a resounding 9- 2 victory over the Rochester Red Wings at home at Coca-Cola Field.  With great hitting and team speed, only two Bisons failed to get hits today while Andy LaRoche had a 4 for 6 day with a stolen base and a 2 run HR in the 3rd inning.  Also of note were 2B Eugenio Velez who went 3 for 6 with a stolen base and Munenori Kawasaki who went 2 for 3 with two walks while scoring twice and driving in a run.  All five of the Bison pitchers had great days, although starter Claudio Vargas struggled with his control in his four innings.  Anthony Gose did not have a good day on the bases, getting caught stealing and picked off.

Eugenio Velez – 3/6, R, SB

New Hampshire Fisher Cats (1-2)

The New Hampshire Fisher Cats took their second loss of the season, falling 10-3 to the Reading Fightin’ Phils on Saturday.  All of the pitchers had rough days but weren’t able to rely on their defense, who committed five errors resulting in three of the ten runs being unearned.  Distinguishing themselves with the bats were 3B Ryan Schimpf who went deep with his second HR of the year and Kenny Wilson and Kevin Pillar had multi-hit days, and making nuisances of themselves on the basepaths.

Hitting:

Kenny Wilson – 2/5, R, 2B, K, SB, E
Kevin Pillar – 4/5, R, 2 SB, E, OF Assist
Ryan Schimpf – 1/3, R, HR, 3 RBI, BB, K, E

Ricardo Nanita – 0/5, 3 K
Brian Van Kirk – 1/5, 2 K
John Tolisano – 0/2, 2 BB
Jack Murphy – 0/4, 2 K
Amadeo Zazueta – 0/4

Pitching:

Dunedin Blue Jays (2-1)

The D-Jays took their first loss of the season, falling 7-3 to the Clearwater Threshers on Saturday.  The game was started by #1 prospect Aaron Sanchez who showed off his power arm by hitting 97 at least twice in the 1st inning, and 98 in the third.  He was also throwing a 90 mph pitch which the announcers called a “changeup” and a curve, getting four strikeouts on the day.  The Threshers went 9 up, 9 down to start the game but became more patient in their second time through the order, eventually tagging Sanchez for 3 runs on 3 hits and one walk in five innings of work.  To be honest, from what I heard on the radio broadcast, there was probably one or two balls that could have been played (despite not being scored as an error) and Sanchez could have gotten out of the three run fourth inning with less damage.

On offense, the batters could only manage 3 runs on 10 hits, getting all three runs off starter Ethan Stewart. 

Hitting:

Jon Berti – 2/5, RBI, 2K, CS
Peter Mooney – 0/3, BB, HBP
Andy Burns – 1/5
Gabe Jacobo – 1/5, 2B
Marcus Knecht –1/3, BB, K
Michael Crouse –0/2, R, 2 BB, K, SB
Oliver Dominguez – 2/3, R, 3B, RBI, BB, K
Aaron Munoz – 1/3, 2 K
Jonathan Jones – 2/4, R, 2B, RBI

Pitching

Aaron Sanchez – 5 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 4 K
Dustin Antolin – 2 IP, 4 K
Shawn Griffith – L, 1/3 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 1 BB,
Tony Davis – 1 2/3 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 4 K

Blue Jays from Away Player of the Game: Dustin Antolin

Lansing Lugnuts (2-1)

The Lugnuts beat up on a pair of Lake County Captains pitchers to come out on top of an 8-1 victory on Saturday.  21-year-old lefty Alonzo Gonzalez, making his first start above rookie ball, continued the trend of fantastic starting pitching for the Lugnuts by going 6 shutout innings, giving up only 3 hits and 2 walks while striking out 6.  The offense was clicking in an interesting way.  While Jorge Flores was the only starter who failed to get a base hit, he also was the only starter who didn’t strike out, as the team compiled 13 hits (including 4 doubles) and 16 strikeouts.

Hitting:

Dalton Pompey – 1/5, 2 R, 2B, 4 K
Gustavo Pierre – 2/5, 2 R, 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K, E
Christian Lopes – 1/5, R, 2 K
Balbino Fuenmayor – 2/5, R, 2 RBI, 3 K
Chris Hawkins – 2/5, 2B, K
Carlos Ramirez – 2/5, R, 2B, K
Kellen Sweeney – 1/4, RBI, BB, 2 K
Seth Conner – 2/4, R, RBI, K
Jorge Flores – 0/3, RBI, BB

Pitching:

Alonzo Gonzalez – W, 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K
Griffin Murphy – 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R (unearned)
Ian Kadish – 1 IP, 2 K
Andrew Sikula – 1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 1 K
