Notes from the Gulf Coast League:
GCL Yankees 1 lost 0-10 to the GCL Blue Jays. Adonis Garcia was 0-4 with a strikeout, Austin Aune and Ty Afenir were both 0-3 with two strikeouts a piece. Gosuke Katoh singled to bring his average to .353 to begin his professional career. Jordan Barnes was 3-3. The team collectively played some pretty poor defense with Aune, Katoh, Kevin Corneluis and Christopher Breen all committing errors in the game. Chaz Hebert started for the Yankees and allowed five runs, three of them earned, in three innings of work.
Despite picking up 14 hits, GCL Yankees 2 were defeated by the GCL Astros in extra innings. Third baseman Renzo Martini went 4-5 to bring his average to begin the season to .348. Dalton Smith picked up two singles and right fielder Jorge Alcantara doubled and drove in three runs. Joseph Maher started for the Yankees, going four innings and giving up one run while striking out two batters.
