when it’s working

Where’d that come from? It has been an uneven season for Conor Fisk, the Southern Miss product now in the Toronto system. Entering Friday night’s game for Class A Dunedin, the 25-year-old right-hander had a 4-9 record and a 4.13 ERA. Then came his performance against Lakeland, one he’d surely like to bottle. Fisk retired the first 12 batters he faced and the last 12 sandwiched around one hit. He struck out six in his eight-inning effort, leading the Blue Jays to a 1-0 victory. “It was just one of those games where things were working,” Fisk told milb.com. Fisk, drafted in the 24th round out of USM in 2014, has a 3.73 career ERA working mostly out of the bullpen. This is his third stint at high-A Dunedin; he went 10-3, 3.25 for the D-Jays in 2016. While this season has been a trying one for Fisk, over his last seven appearances, all starts, he has been relatively sharp. He has a 2.09 ERA in that span, with only a couple of wobbly outings. He may have made a good case Friday for a move to Double-A. … Ex-Petal High star – and onetime USM quarterback – Anthony Alford, who was with Dunedin for several days on a big league rehab assignment, is now at Double-A New Hampshire. He went 1-for-4 on Friday.
