The Yankees farm system had a decent day going 3-3. Here is a look at the day’s action from last night in today’s Minor League Roundup!
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: Railriders (37-42) split doubleheader with Syracuse Chiefs (49-31) 7-4 and 4-3
The Railriders sent Alfredo Aceves to the mound against Manny Delcarmen. Aceves threw four scoreless innings, before being touched up for three straight hits, including a run-scoring single by Emmanuel Burris. Reliever Danny Burawa came in and shut the door on the Chiefs. Catcher John Ryan Murphy and infielder Zoilo Almonte scored on a double to make the game 7-4 and take the win.
