Bauxite Mike Green is a former contributor to these minor league updates. He must have been feeling the itch today as he summarised the afternoon. Here it is: The affiliates are 3-0 so far (edit 4-0) and Vancouver has a 1 run lead in the middle innings (edit: they won in extras). Carl Edwards Jr. got the win with a scoreless 7th inning for the Bisons. SWR threw 5 shutout innings with 4 walks and 7 strikeouts. Samad Taylor homered among his 3 hits and Otto Lopez doubled twice and walked to lead the Fisher Cat offence. Thanks Mike.

Cameron Eden had the walk off hit for the C's, his fourth hit of the day. He also drove in the tying run in the ninth.

It hasn't been a good start to the season for the Dunedin Blue Jays but it got worse on Saturday when they were no hit by Bradenton. They held Bradenton to just two runs, their second best pitching performance of the year, and all for naught. Conner Overton made his second "emergency" start and pitched six shutout innings as Buffalo won again. New Hampshire took a bullpen loss. Austin Martin had two hits but was pulled from the game in the sixth. Vancouver won behind Adam Kloffenstein.

He is no Otto Velez, yet, but Otto Lopez went 4-4 on Friday, scoring three runs. All the runs by Otto came off the Somerset pitcher, Glenn Otto. It was some Otto on Otto violence. The Fisher Cats won that game. The Canadians won too with Canada's own Tanner Kirwer hitting a grand slam. The Bisons also won while Dunedin, this years lovable losers, lost despite home runs from Miguel Hiraldo and Orelvis Martinez.

The Jays open a ten game "homestand" in Dunedin tonight, and let's hope this will be the last time. They'll begin playing their "home" games in Buffalo on June 1 and someday, baby, who knows baby, they'll come and be playing here for you.

The National League was founded in February 1876, and Chicago provided one of the charter franchises, coming over from the National Association of Base Ball Players which had provided a very loose organizational structure for the preceding five years.

It was a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

On Friday, all the affiliates lost and conceded 48 runs over four games. Tampa scored 25 against Dunedin. Things can only get better, right?

Now Dusty Baker is the one who manages this crew
He's older than the game itself, he's seen a thing or two
But that toothpick in his mouth
What the hell is that about?
It makes a fellow proud to be an Astro
