It was a day of mixed results for the Baby Bombers on Sunday. The Staten Island Yankees played double header and split the two games. As far as the rest of the teams, they won only one of the other games, with Tampa not playing due to the All-Star festivities. Here’s your daily dose of the affiliates in today’s Yankees MiLB Roundup.

Joel De La Cruz allowed ten base runners (seven hits and three walks) and was tagged for four earned runs in four innings, and the bullpen was just as bad, giving up another seven runs. Corban Joseph had three hits and an RBI for the RailRiders. Shane Greene will get the start Monday, looking to end the team’s five game losing streak.
Trenton Thunder (34-36) lose to New Britain Rock Cats (33-32) 6-2
Bryan Mitchell got the start and was lousy again, conceding five runs in five and a third innings. He issued four base-on-balls and his record now sits at 1-5. Tyler Austin picked up two hits and Ali Castillo had the only two RBI for Trenton. Jairo Heredia will make the start Monday for the Thunder.
