'Super' Vlad Jr. smacks dinger in 4th straight triple-A game
Toronto's top prospect now batting .441 with Buffalo
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. continues to feast on minor-league pitching.
The top prospect in baseball hit a home run for the fourth consecutive game for the Buffalo Bisons — the Toronto Blue Jays' triple-A affiliate — Saturday in a 6-3 loss against the Toledo Mud Hens.
The 19-year-old Guerrero went 2-for-4 and is now batting .441 in 11 games with Buffalo since being called up from double-A New Hampshire.

Guerrero can tie a Buffalo franchise record if he hits a home run for a fifth consecutive game Sunday. Four previous Bisons have accomplished the feat.
The Saturday shot was his first to the opposite field as Guerrero cleared the right-field fence in the fourth.
Before the game, Guerrero posed for a picture with the top NHL prospect — Buffalo Sabres No. 1 overall pick Rasmus Dahlin, who threw out the first pitch.
