The Baby Bombers finished 4-4 Friday night. The pitching was a bit wild but the bats were alive all around. Here’s how it all went down in today’s Yankees MiLB Roundup.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barres RailRiders (46-53) lost to the Charlotte Knights (42-58) 8-4.
Former Yankees 19-game winner Chien-Ming Wang proved too much for the RailRiders to handle. Chris LeRoux was tagged for four runs in his four innings of work, but it was Jeremy Bleich‘s two runs in his 1.1 innings that proved to be the downfall for the RailRiders. Bleich’s struggles continue since his promotion, falling to 0-3 with an 8.14 ERA. Newly promoted Tyler Webb was not welcomed to Triple-A ball nicely, as he was hit for two more runs in his inning and a third of work. The RailRiders did amass ten hits as left fielder Zoilo Almonte led the way with two. Everyone but Taylor Dugas had at least one hit, as Dugas saw his mini-hit streak come to an end. Nik Turley takes the hill Saturday night at 7:05 PM.
Trenton Thunder (45-54) defeated the Binghamton Mets (59-39) 6-5.
A huge four run seventh sealed the deal for the Thunder Friday night. Zach Nuding didn’t have his best stuff, but the Thunder’s offense helped him earn the win. He went six innings, striking out six and allowing four runs. Third baseman Rob Segedin had a monster night. He hit three doubles and drove in three runs. DH Tyler Austin also amassed there hits on the night. Center fielder Jake Cave has supplanted right fielder Mason Williams atop the order in just his second game since being called up from Tampa. Yankees all world prospect Luis Severino makes his debut Saturday night at 7:05 PM.
The Tampa Yankees (45-52) lost to the Palm Beach Cardnials (57-39) 5-4.
Brady Lail‘s 2014 Tampa debut didn’t go as planned. Lail earned a no decision going five innings and allowing four runs. Ramon Benjamin took his first loss of the season, however, it was a tough luck loss as the run was unearned. First baseman Greg Bird continued his reemergence going 2-for-4 on the night. The T-Yanks haven’t named a pitcher for Saturday’s 6:35 PM bout.
The Charleston RiverDogs (46-52) defeated the Augusta GreenJackets (47-50) 5-3.
Andy Beresford picked up his first win in his return to the RiverDogs. He went five strong allowing two runs while striking out only one but walking none. Philip Walby closed it out for his sixth save of the season. First baseman Reymond Nunez led the seven hot brigade with a 2-for-4 night, blasting two home runs and driving in three. Chaz Herbert will make the first pitch at 6:05 PM Saturday night.
Staten Island Yankees (17-17) lost to the Williamsport Crosscutters (18-16) 6-3.
