Yankees' Minor League Roundup For May 9th

It was a big night for the Baby Bombers, as they posted a 3-1 record on Friday night as a system. The one loss, was a one-run affair. The much-maligned Yankees’ farm system continues to have some great performances throughout the season. It should be interesting to continue monitoring the prospects each day with the Minor League Roundup!

Triple-A

The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders defeated the Durham Bulls by a score of 3-2. 

Joel De La Cruz tossed 5 innings of 1-run ball for Scranton, with Jose Ramirez getting the victory out of the bullpen. A combination of 4 relievers held the lead for the RailRiders in a close match-up. Russ Canzler paced the RailRiders on offense, going 2-for4, with a home run. Austin Romine also had a pair of hits.

The RailRiders return to action this evening at 7:05 p.m. ET, as Shane Greene (0-0, 4.66) opposes Matt Andriese for the Bulls (1-3, 5.55)

Box Score

 

Double-A

The Trenton Thunder handled the Reading Fightin Phils 8-2.

Three Thunder hitters had at least two hits, paced by outfielder Ben Gamel who went 3-for-5 with a triple and a RBI. Recently promoted Peter O’Brien DHed, and went 1-for-4. Dan Fiorito had two doubles in the blowout victory. A pair of Mannys handled the heavy lifting for the Thunder on the mound, as Banuelos started, went 3 innings, and allowed a pair of runs. Barreda notched the win, going 3 innings, striking out 2, and not allowing a run.

Like the RailRiders, the Thunder take on the Fightin’s again tonight at 7:05 p.m. Trenton will pitch Caleb Cotham (0-0, 0.00) while Reading counters with Mike Nesseth (0-2, 10.80).

Box Score

 

Single-A Advanced

The Tampa Yankees fell to the Lakeland Flying Tigers by a final of 4-3.

Greg Bird and Jake Cave both had nice nights at the plate for the T-Yanks, it wasn’t enough to overcome the overall performance of the Flying Tigers’ lineup. Rafael De Paula had the best night on the mound for Tampa, going 4 innings, striking out 3 and allowing only 1 earned run.

Both teams square-off again this evening at 6:05 p.m. ET, but neither team has announced a starter as of this writing.

Box Score

 

Single-A Low

The Charleston RiverDogs blew the doors off of the Rome Braves by the score of 9-2.

Tyler Wade had a huge night for the ‘Dogs, going 3-for-4 with a triple and 4 runs batted in. Prospect Aaron Judge went yard, going 1-for-4 in the win for Charleston. Another of the Yankees’ big prospects, Ian Clarkin got the nod on the mound, and tossed 4 2/3 innings, allowing 1 run while striking out 5 Braves.

The RiverDogs return home to open up a series with Savannah at 6:05 p.m. ET. Savannah sends John Gant (3-1, 2.79) to the mound to take on Charleston’s Caleb Smith (3-1, 0.66). It should be a pretty good pitching match-up for both teams.
