Yankees MiLB Roundup for August 12th: Starting Pitching and Rain Headline The Day

1 of 5

Tuesday was a successful day for the Baby Bombers. There were only three games played due to off days and a rain out. The Yankees’ Minor League affiliates were able to win two of the three games. Weather played a factor for the second consecutive day, as Staten Island was unable to get their game against Connecticut going due to rain. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre was threatened with heavy rain as well, but managed to get their game in.The biggest highlight of the day was former top prospect, Manny Banuelos making his first start for Scranton this season. In a season full of mediocrity at both the Major and Minor League levels, this is something Yankee fans hopefully put some faith in.

Banuelos was not alone Tuesday, as all three starting pitchers turned in stellar outings. If it wasn’t for a few bullpen hiccups in Trenton, the youngsters would have swept the three games. Tuesday seemed like so many other days for the Yankee Minor Leaguers: just can’t seem to put it all together. Here’s the rest of  today’s Minor League Roundup.
