Now That Was Ugly

Was there something in the water last night or what?

Brandon Morrow supplied the missiles for Sox the launch and gave up 7 earned runs in the Jays first blowout. You knew it had to happen but expected it from one of our soft tossing lefties than from Morrow. Obviously that shoulder soreness in the spring is either still bothering him or kept him from being fully ready for the season based on his first 2 starts. Let's hope it is just an anomaly, otherwise the Jays might be looking for a temporary replacement starter.

Las Vegas
Reider Gonzalez gave up 5 earned runs in 5 innings though the bullpen did a respectable job of holding Fresno to 2 runs the rest of the way. Who would have thought we'd score 7 off Madison Bumgarner, who is expected to be with the Giants sometime this year. Supported by 3 home runs and offense spread throughout the lineup, the 51's managed an 8-7 squeaker.

New Hampshire
With Kyle Drabek on the mound, one would expect the Fisher Cats to come out with a "W". But Drabek gave up 7 runs (3 earned) in 5-2/3 innings for a 7-3 loss.

The pitching staff wasn't great surrending 6 runs to the opposition but with Travis D'Arnaud leading the way with 4 hits and 3 RBI, Dunedin also got lots of offense spread throughout the lineup and the baby Jays managed an 11-6 victory. D'Arnaud is now 3rd in hitting and 2nd in RBI in the FSL. Another 2-3 weeks of that type of hitting will likely spur a promotion to New Hampshire.

Matt Fields gave up 5 runs in 4 innings leading to a 7-3 loss for the Lugnuts.

27 runs surrendered and 6 errors allowed collectively on the farm last night to go with the 11 runs surrendered by the big team. Let's hope it was just a full moon or something.
