It wasn’t a great start to the week for the Baby Bombers. They were guaranteed at least one win as both Gulf Coast Yankees teams squared off against each other. That was the only win they could muster on the evening. While the top levels head into the All-Star Break, here’s the night’s recap in today’s Yankees MiLB Roundup.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barres RailRiders (46-51) are on All Star Break.
The RailRiders ended the first half of their season in last place in the North Division, but there roster was in constant flux with all of the injuries at the big league level. Tune in Wednesday night for the International League All-Star Game where Jose Pirela will represent the Baby Bombers.
Trenton Thunder (44-53) lost to the Akron RubberDucks (56-41) 5-2.
The Thunder closed out their first half on a sour note. Matt Tracy went six strong allowing just two runs. Not only will he be representing the Thunder in the Eastern League All Star Game Wednesday, he will be promoted to AAA after the game. Manny Barreda picked up his first loss of the season allowing three runs in 1.2 innings pitched. Third baseman Rob Segedin and right fielder Tyler Austin led the way with two hits each. Tracy joins Matt Gamel, Tyler Webb, Gary Sanchez, and Peter O’Brien this Wednesday in the EL All Star Game.
The Tampa Yankees (45-49) lost to the Bradenton Marauders (50-42) 6-2.
Once again, reigning Florida State League Pitcher of the Week Miguel Sabaran received no run support. For his eighth straight start Sulbaran allowed one run or less and didn’t walk away with a win. More astonishingly is his uncanny control as he walked none over his six innings while striking out four. Wes Wilson would lose it in the twelfth inning allowing four runs over his inning of work. Left fielder Yelcok Calderon drove in both T-Yanks runs. Right fielder Aaron Judge had yet another multi-hit night. The T-Yanks are off tomorrow night.
The Charleston RiverDogs (10-14) were idle.
The RiverDogs had a rest day Monday. Omar Luiz kicks off the series against the Lexington Legends Tuesday night. First pitch is 7:05 PM.
Staten Island Yankees (15-16) dropped the conclusion of yesterday’s weather shortened game 4-3 and then were swept in Game 2 by the State College Spikes (21-8) 7-1.
Gulf Coast League
Gulf Coast Yankees 2 (8-11) defeated the Gulf Coast Yankees 1 (16-5) 5-4.
