Baby Bomber Recap 4/15/13: Vidal Nuno impressive, Austin Romine injured in RailRiders win

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: W 10-1 vs. Rochester Red Wings

Corban Joseph 3-5, 2B, HR, 2 RBI - first homer of the season
David Adams 2-5

Dan Johnson 1-4, 2 RBI
Austin Romine 3-3 - left the game with an injury after being hit with a foul tip on his throwing arm
Melky Mesa 1-5, HR, RBI, 2 K - second homer of the season

Preston Claiborne 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, BB - four groundouts, no flyouts

The RailRiders had no trouble powering their way to a win last night behind three home runs, but the concern will be the injury to Austin Romine, who had been one of their hottest hitters and missed nearly all of last season with a back injury. Hopefully it's nothing, but until we know the definitive diagnosis, there's reason to be a little concerned. Chris Bootcheck gets the start today at 7:05 pm.

Double-A Trenton Thunder: W 5-3 vs. Akron Aeros

Branden Pinder 2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, BB
Tom Kahnle 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, BB, K - zero groundouts, two flyouts

Nik Turley was less disastrous than he had been in recent memory and the Thunder offense did the rest as Neil Medchill continued to be one of the hottest hitters on the Yankee farm. Zach Nuding gets the start for Trenton today at 7:05 pm at Arm & Hammer Park.

Sean Black 2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, K

The defense and offense really let down Bryan Mitchell in this one, and the Tampa Yankees continue to struggle to win games. Corey Black tries to change that starting today at 7 pm.
