The end of the first month of baseball for the Yankees’ minor league affiliates was rather uneventful. Wednesday night was one of good news and bad news for the Baby Bombers. The bad news is that three teams couldn’t play. The good news was the one that did, won. Let’s take a look around the farm in today’s Minor League Roundup.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barres RailRiders (11-13) were idle.
The RailRiders had a rest day. Caleb Cotham gets the ball tonight to kick off the four game series at Norfolk.
Trenton Thunder (16-9) and New Hampshire Fisher Cats (11-12) were postponed.
The Tampa Yankees (14-12) defeated the Dunedin Blue Jays (20-6) 6-0.
Brett Gerritse was on fire yesterday as he completely dominated the first place Dunedin Blue Jays. He went six strong allowing just two hit and no runs. Phil Wetherell and Tyler Webb combined for three innings of shutout ball to combine on the two-hitter. 3B Dante Bichette, Jr. and DH Eric Jagielo both contributed two hits on the evening. LF Claudio Custodio joined the party with a two-RBI night. SS Brendan Ryan continued his climb back to the bigs, going 1-for-3 on the night.
The Charleston RiverDogs (12-12) and the Augusta GreenJackets (12-13) were suspended.
The RiverDogs and GreenJackets took the field for an inning, but rain inevitably suspended the game in the bottom of the first with Aaron Judge at-bat. A double header is scheduled for today. Reigning South Atlantic Pitcher of the Week, Caleb Smith, started yesterday’s suspended game and should get the ball in the continuation today. Rookie Davis is slated for Game 2.
