It was a tough day for the Baby Bombers on Tuesday. All seven teams were in action, but the squads could only muster two wins.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (40-44) lose to Lehigh Valley IronPigs (41-44) 3-2
After giving up two runs in the first, Alfredo Aceves settled down, but it wasn’t enough. His final line said eight hits and three earned runs over five and a third innings. Zoilo Almonte hit his twelve home run and drove in two. Shane Greene will make the start for SWB Wednesday at 5:35 against Buffalo.
Trenton Thunder (39-46) lose to Portland Sea Dogs (55-28) 5-4
Manny Banuelos started and gave up four runs in a third of an inning. The bullpen did a nice job in relief, but the damage was already done. Rob Segedin went two-for-five and drove in two, but Trenton could not muster much else. Brian Mitchell will be on the hill Wednesday when Trenton takes on Portland. First pitch is at 7:05.
Tampa Yankees (41-41) defeat Lakeland Flying Tigers (45-34) 14-2
Dan Camarena had a superb day, going six innings and giving up one un-earned run. The offense was alive for Tampa, led by Jake Cave, Dante Bichette Jr. and Aaron Judge. Cave had four hits and Bichette and Judge drove in four and five runs, respectively. The Yankees take on Lakeland again Wednesday at 6:30. Nik Turley will make the start.
Charleston RIverDogs (36-47) lose to Savannah Sand Gnats (53-26) 9-8
Ian Clarkin got the start Tuesday and didn’t fair well. He gave up four runs in four innings and walked four. Gosuke Katoh‘s three run homer in the ninth would prove too little, too late. The RiverDogs have another crack at Savannah Wednesday, when Brady Lail takes the mound at 7:05.
Staten Island Yankees (10-8) lose to Aberdeen IronBirds (2-16) 5-4
Matt Borens made the start for Staten Island, and he allowed just one hit over three innings. The bullpen let him down however, surrendering five runs over the next four innings. Renzo Martini hit his first home run in the third inning and Luis Torrens drove in two. Jordan Cote will make the 7:05 first pitch against Aberdeen on Wednesday.
Gulf Coast Yankees 1 (9-0) defeat Gulf Coast Braves (3-6) 7-1
Gulf Coast Yankees 2 (4-6) lose to Gulf Coast Pirates (4-6) 5-3
