Mother Nature had more victories than the Baby Bombers on Monday night. Three games were lost to rain outs and the Junior Yankees that did play didn’t fare very well. There were live bats and mediocre pitching alive on Monday night. Here’s how it all went down in tonight’s Yankees MiLB Roundup.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barres RailRiders (57-59) lost to the Syracuse Chiefs (64-51) 7-6.
Nik Turley struggled once again Monday night. Turley got banged up for four runs in his 3.2 innings pitched while both walking and striking out three. The RailRiders bats kept Turley in it and Jim Miller ultimately picked up the loss allowing three runs over 1.1 innings. Second baseman Jose Pirela had yet another big night going 2-for-5 with an RBI and three runs scored. Center fielder Adonis Garcia, left fielder Zoilo Almonte and first baseman Kyle Roller all chipped in with two hits a piece. Matt Tracy takes the mound Tuesday night in Syracuse. First pitch is 7:00 PM.
Trenton Thunder (56-60) had the night off.
The Thunder enjoyed an off night Monday. The team won both of its two series last week against the Portland SeaDogs and New BritainRock Cats. They look to stay hot when the Altoona Curve come to Arm and Hammer Park. No starting pitcher has yet to be announced for the 7:05 PM first pitch.
The Tampa Yankees (54-59) were rained out against the Jupiter Hammerheads (56-50).
The T-Yanks were washed out in their series finale against the Hammerheads. No make up date has yet to be announced. They could probably use the night of rest after losing six of their last seven. Brett Gerritse will get the ball Tuesday night in the opener of a three game series against the Brevard Manatees. Game time is 7:00 PM.
The Charleston RiverDogs (55-57) were rained out against the Savannah Sand Gnats (70-38).
The RiverDogs were set for a double header against the Sand Gnats but Mother Nature had other plans. It sets up a four-game series in two days as the RoverDogs and Sand Gnats will play back-to-back double headers Tuesday and Wednesday. Andy Beresford takes the mound for Game One at 5:35PM. 2014 first round draft pick Justin Kamplain takes the ball for Game Two.
Staten Island Yankees (24-27) lost to the Auburn Doubledays (23-27) 7-6.
The SI Yanks lost a heart breaker in the tenth inning Monday. They have a much needed off day on Tuesday.
Gulf Coast League
Gulf Coast Yankees 1 (24-12) defeated the GCL Astros (20-19) 7-5.
Gulf Coast Yankees 2 (24-14) defeated the GCL Blue Jays (12-26) 3-2.
