April 7 Minor League Report

Buffalo Bisons (3-1)

The Bisons took their first loss of the season to the Rochester Red Wings, falling 14-5.  Newly promoted Tyson Brummett struggled to throw strikes as he walked three batters to go along with the three hits he surrendered while throwing 38 pitches to get only one out, a strikeout.  Although the defense didn’t help, making two errors, the pitching staff still gave up twelve earned runs on the day, making the shoddy plays in the field a bit of a moot point.  Four of the Bisons’ five runs came on solo HRs, with two by on-fire DH Andy Laroche as well as the first of the season each for 3B Eugenio Velez and 2B Jim Negrych.


Mike McCoy – 1/5, RBI

New Hampshire Fisher Cats (2-2)

The Fisher Cats squared up their series against the Reading Fightin’ Phils with a 6-5 victory on Sunday.  The batters showed a great deal of patience with the Reading pitching staff, taking ten walks on the afternoon including six off their starter, #10 ranked Phillies prospect Austin Wright.  The hero of the day was 2B John Tolisano, who hit a one-out triple in the bottom of the eighth and was driven home by a Kevin Pillar single to break the tie.  Starting pitcher Clint Everts got roughed up a little bit today, giving up two home runs and four runs in his four innings, but the bullpen gave up only a single run off of a solo shot off Matt Wright (in an otherwise excellent 3  1/3 innings of work).


Kenny Wilson – 0/5, 2 K
Kevin Pillar – 1/4, R, RBI, BB, SB
Sean Ochinko – 1/2, RBI, 3 BB, SB, CS

Dunedin Blue Jays (3-1)

The D-Jays got more great pitching and a bunch of runs (mostly in the fourth and fifth innings) to beat the Clearwater Threshers for the third time in four games 6-1.  Starter Efrain Nieves went five scoreless innings, giving up only three hits and a walk while striking out three to lead the way for the Jays.  The hits kept coming on offense as every starter except for Oliver Dominguez got at least a base hit, contributing to the eleven total hits for the team.  Speedsters Jon Berti , Jonathan Jones, and Andy Burns had their way on the base paths against the Fightin' Phils, stealing a total of five bases between them.  Matt Newman had the hot bat, going two for three with two doubles and a walk as well as an outfield assist.


Jon Berti  - 1/4, R, BB, 2 K, SB
Oliver Dominguez – 0/4, RBI, 2 K
Andy Burns – 2/3, R, RBI, BB, 2 SB
Gabe Jacobo – 1/4, BB

Lansing Lugnuts (3-1)

The Lansing Lugnuts put another hurt on the Lake County Captains by getting another fantastic performance from their starter, winning 7-1.  This time it was 18-year-old Roberto Osuna, the youngest player on a full-season roster, stepping up and shutting down the Captains by putting together a Full-Season A debut performance that was reminiscent of his Short-Season A debut last season with Vancouver.  Going 5 innings, he gave up only 2 hits (one of them a solo HR) and no walks to go with his 8 strikeouts, effectively stifling the opposition.  Today’s run given up by Osuna was actually the ONLY run given up by any of the four starting pitchers in the Lugnuts series with Lake County.  19-year-old lefty Daniel Norris goes tomorrow.  Osuna got plenty of run support, especially in the form of the long-ball with both Balbino Fuenmayor and Carlos Ramirez going deep.  Gustavo Pierre also had a big day at the plate, going three for five with two doubles.


Ronald Melendez – 0/4, R, BB, CS
Gustavo Pierre – 3/5, 2 R, 2 2B, RBI, K, CS
Christian Lopes – 1/5
Balbino Fuenmayor –2/4, R, 2B, HR, 2 RBI, BB
Chris Hawkins – 0/4, K
Santiago Nessy – 1/3, BB
Kellen Sweeney – 2/4, R
Carlos Ramirez – 1/2, R, HR, RBI, BB, K
Jorge Flores – 1/4, R RBI, K


Roberto Osuna – W, 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 8 K, 1 HR
Ben White – 3 IP, 3 H, 1 BB, 4 K
Matt Johnson – 1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB
