Baby Bombers 7/21/13: Greg Bird stays hot in Charleston win

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: L 1-4 vs. Louisville Bats

2B David Adams 0-3, BB
C JR Murphy 1-3, 2B, RBI, BB - batting .308/.341/.410 over his last 10 games
RF Adonis Garcia 1-3, 2B, SB, HBP
1B Dan Johnson 0-3, BB, K

Dellin Betances 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K

Ramirez ran into trouble with a 30-pitch first inning but escaped allowing only one run. He's give up two more in the third which would be more than the RailRiders, who notched four hits, could manage to overcome.

Double-A Trenton Thunder: W 8-2 vs. New Hampshire Fisher Cats

LF Ramon Flores 1-5, 2B, RBI, K - batting .263/.364/.342 over his last 10 games
3B Reegie Corona 1-3, 2 RBI, BB, K
2B Jose Pirela 1-3, RBI, BB, K
DH Kyle Roller 0-3, BB, 3 K

Danny Burawa 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Tom Kahnle 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, K

The Thunder offense was led by two big innings in the fifth and seventh that gave them a win on the afternoon and an even 50-50 record for the season. Lewis was a reliever that the team is trying to convert into a starter.

High-A Tampa Yankees: L 4-9 vs. Palm Beach Cardinals

CF Mason Williams 1-5, RBI - batting .386/.413/.500 over his last 10 games, hit safely in all 10
2B Rob Refsnyder 1-3, 2B, 2 RBI, 2 BB, K

LF Jose Toussen 1-4
SS Ali Castillo 1-4, 2 K

Dietrich Enns 4 IP, 7 H, 8 R/1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K - five groundouts, three flyouts
Branden Pinder 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, K
Charley Short 2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, K

An error and a disastrous seven-run inning in the fourth for Enns put the game fairly out of reach for the Yankees. Tampa tried to close the gap some with three runs in the seventh, but the deficit was far too much to overcome at that point.

Low-A Charleston RiverDogs: W 3-0 vs. Hickory Crawdads

CF Jake Cave 0-4, K, HBP
SS Cito Culver 1-5, 2 K, E6 - throwing error, 14th of the season

DH Reymond Nunez 1-4, 2 RBI
RF Danny Oh 1-4, K - batting .294 this season
C Nick McCoy 0-3, BB
LF Ericson Leonora 3-4, 2 SB, CS

Brett Gerritse 5 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, WP - one groundout, four flyouts
Eric Wooten 2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, HB
Ben Paullus 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, BB, 3 K

Charleston out-hit Hickory 12-4, all of which were singles. The RiverDogs got some exceptional pitching that kept the Crawdads from turning any of their four hits into a run for their 55th win of the season.

Charles Haslup 2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, BB, 2 K
Kelvin Castro 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

Both teams managed to tally four hits, but a three-run (one of which was earned) fourth inning for the Yankees gave them the game.
