Despite losing two of three games in the minor leagues, the Jays had some strong performances from some of the top prospects in the system. Aaron Hill had a strong show with Syracuse while Shaun Marcum continued to show his remarkable control pitching for New Hampshire. This and much more in Tuesdays edition of the Minor League Notebook.

Syracuse Dominate with Hitting and Pitching

The SkyChiefs scored nine runs and accumulated fourteen hits in their 9-0 victory over Buffalo Monday evening. Aaron Hill led the charge going 2-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and three RBI. Jason Alfaro doubled in two runs, while scoring another run. Bryant Nelson, Gabe Gross, Eric Crozier and Andy Dominique also added an RBI in the game. Center fielder Anton French picked up three hits in five at bats and scored a run.

Shaun Marcum picked up the loss, however, faired quite well lasting six innings and allowing two runs on six hits, while walking none and striking out six in the process.
