It was an offensive explosion around the farm system, but unfortunately it wasn’t all off the Baby Bombers bats. Seventy-four runs were scored across the seven New York Yankees minor league games played Wednesday night. Thirty-three of those runs came off of the oppositions bats, however. There clearly weren’t many exciting pitching stories throughout the Yankees MiLB games, however Caleb Smith continued his surprising season while turning in a solid outing for the Tampa Yankees.
The Tampa Yankees also provided the bulk of the offensive stars of the night. Elite Yankees prospects outfielder Aaron Judge, third baseman Eric Jagielo and center fielder Mark Payton combined for ten hits on the night. While all three are a year away, they are progressing faster than expected. Way down on the farm, the Staten Island Yankees continue to stay alive in the New York/Penn League Wild Card race. The SI Yanks were led by two of their budding prospects as third baseman Ty McFarland and catcher Luis Torrens, who both drove in three runs a piece on the night. The Gulf Coast League is being dominated by both Yankees affiliates as both remain in first place. Here’s how all the action went down Wednesday night in today’s Yankees MiLB Roundup.
