April 15 Minor League Report

Buffalo Bisons (5-4)

The Buffalo Bisons rebounded from Sunday’s game 2 pounding with a 6-1 win over the Syracuse Chiefs on Monday.  The herd not only got an excellent pitching performance from veteran Claudio Vargas, but they got a big top of the eighth from the hitters to take the lead and build a five-run cushion that they would not relinquish.  Building their rally on home runs from Eugenio Velez and Mauro Gomez (his second of two on the night), the Bisons sent eight batters to the plate and got singles from Ryan Goins and Mike McCoy and a double from Jim Negrych on top of the two homers. 

Roster Notes:  On Sunday, the Bisons activated IF Lance Zawadzki and P Edgar Gonzalez and are now available to the team.  Monday had the Blue Jays calling up pitcher Ramon Ortiz to take DFA’ed outfielder Casper Wells’s spot on the 25 man roster.


Mike McCoy – 1/4, R
Jim Negrych – 1/4, R, 2B, 2 RBI
Moises Sierra – 0/4, K
Mauro Gomez – 4/4, 2 R, 2B, 2 HR, 3 RBI
Andy LaRoche – 0/4

New Hampshire Fisher Cats (6-6)

The Fisher Cats attempted a comeback in the 9th, but were only able to get two of the four runs they trailed the New Britain Rock Cats and the final score ended up 5-3 New Britain.  Starter Marcus Walden struggled, giving up 11 hits in his five innings of work while the bullpen was outstanding in keeping the New Hampshire squad close.  Joel Carreno, Clint Everts and Chad Beck combined for three scoreless innings and Carreno and Beck each struck out the side.  Clint Roinson and Sean Ochinko had two hits each, including Ochinko’s two-run blast in the ninth for his first home run of the year.  John Tolisano had a quiet game, and made his sixth error of the season, resulting in one of the runs against Walden being unearned.


Kenny Wilson – 1/4, 2B, BB, K, CS, PO
Kevin Pillar – 0/4, K
Ryan Schimpf – 1/4, R, 2 K
Brad Glenn – 0/4, 2 K
Clint Robinson – 2/4, R, 2B, RBI, K
Sean Ochinko – 2/4, R, HR, 2 RBI, K
Adam Loewen – 0/3, BB, 3 K
John Tolisano – 0/3, BB, E
Amadeo Zazueta – 2/4


Marcus Walden – L, 5 IP, 11 H, 5 R (4 ER), 1 BB, 1 K
Joel Carreno – 1 IP, 1 BB, 3 K
Clint Everts – 1 IP, 1 BB, 1 K
Chad Beck – 1 IP, 1 BB, 3 K

Dunedin Blue Jays (8-3)

Brett Lawrie contributed to the Dunedin Blue Jays’ victory over the Tampa Yankees on Monday as he played second base and hit a triple in his second rehab start for the D-Jays.  The real star was starting pitcher Scott Copeland who threw a complete game six-hitter, giving up one run while striking out six as the Blue Jays won 3-1.  It was a well pitched game on both sides, as the D-Jays only managed 7 hits, two of them by Matt Newman (including his 5th double).


Jonathan Jones – 0/5, K
Andy Burns – 1/4, R, BB
Brett Lawrie – 1/3, R, 3B, RBI, BB
                Jon Berti PH, 2B – 1/1
Kevin Patterson – 1/5, 2 K
Gabe Jacobo - 1/4, RBI
Matt Newman – 2/4, R, 2B
Pierce Rankin 0/3, BB, K
Derrick Chung – 0/3, BB
Nick Baligod – 0/4, RBI


Scott Copeland – W, 9 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 6 K
