Yankees’ Minor League Roundup For May 2nd


The Baby Bombers were in action Friday night, and in three games, they compiled a system record of 1-2. One game, Class-A Advanced Tampa Yankees’ game against Brevard County was postponed due to bad weather. So, without further delay, here is your Yankees Minor League Roundup for Friday, May 2nd!

Triple-A

Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders (12-14) lost to the Norfolk Tides (9-18) by the score of 10-0.

The Tides’ offense completely dominated poor RailRiders pitching, en route to 13 hits and 10 runs in an easy win against Scranton. Brian Gordon continued to struggle, giving up 7 earned runs in 5 innings, while scattering 8 hits. On offense, Ronnier Mustelier was the only RailRiders’ player with more than 1 hit.

No updated starter has been announced for Scranton, as originally scheduled starter Alfredo Aceves is en route to the Bronx after being called-up to the big club. For Norfolk, Steve Johnson (0-0, 5.87) takes the bump. First pitch is slated for 7:05 p.m. ET.

Box Score

Double-A

Trenton Thunder (18-11) beat the Richmond Flying Squirrels (15-11) by a score of 8-1.

The Thunder brought home the sole victory in the Yankees’ minor league system Friday night. Kyle Roller continues to crush the baseball, going 2-for-3, with three runs scored, a pair of runs batted in, and a bomb. Yankees’ utility man Brendan Ryan continues his recovery and comeback to the big club, with a pair of knocks, and scoring 2 runs. Graham Stoneburner picked up the win for the Thunder, tossing 5 1/3 innings, allowing 1 earned run on 4 hits, striking out 3.

An ensuing pitcher’s duel is slated for Saturday night, as Kyle Crick (1-0, 2.84) takes on Trenton’s Zach Nuding (2-0, 2.43). First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

Box Score

Single-A

Charleston RiverDogs (13-14) lost to the Delmarva Shorebirds (13-14) by a final of 4-3.

A seesaw battle the entire evening left the RiverDogs coming up just short of a full comeback against Delmarva Friday night. Second base prospect Gosuke Katoh paced the ‘Dogs, going 3-for-4, with a double and two runs scored. Luis Severino threw a solid game, going 6 innings, allowing only 2 earned runs, while striking out 7 in the no-decision. Jordan Cote took the loss after giving up 2 earned runs in an 1 1/3 of relief work.

The teams return to the field for Saturday action at 6:05 p.m. ET, as Delmarva will pitch Luc Rennie (0-2, 9.16) against the RiverDogs’ Giovanny Gallegos (0-3, 4.26).

Box Score

**Game Notes: Due to the postponed game for the Tampa Yankees, they will face-off against Brevard County in a doubleheader, with action beginning at 1:05 p.m. and 6:35 p.m.
