It was a really frustrating day for the Yankees minor league affiliates as they went just 1-4 today here is a recap of all the days action.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (51-56) lose to the Pawtucket Red Sox (61-48) 8-5

Trenton Thunder (50-58) lose to the Binghamton mets (63-43) 10-7
It was a shootout between the Thunder And the Binghamton Mets as both offenses combined for 17 runs. Slugger Peter O’Brien hit his 21st home run of the year, which was a two run blast. Designated hitter Tyler Austin put in a four hit day that included 2 runs batted in. The pitching staff got roughed up giving up all ten runs in the first 6 innings and that proved to be to much for the Thunder to bounce back from.

Tampa Yankees (52-53) Lose to the Ft Myers Miracle (64-39) 8-6
Tampa and ft Myers kept it close all game until the late innings where the Miracle where able to get the key big hit that Tampa was not.
