New, comments

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: L 4-5 vs. Columbus Clippers

2B Corban Joseph 1-4, 2B, BB, 2 K, E4 - fielding error, second this season
RF Thomas Neal 1-1, 2B - left game with tight hamstring
LF Zoilo Almonte 0-4, BB, 3 K
1B Dan Johnson 0-1, 4 BB
3B David Adams 1-4, 2 RBI, 2 K - batting .311
DH Cody Johnson 1-2, HR, 2 BB, K
CF Melky Mesa 0-3, 3 K, HBP - 15 Ks in last 10 games

Ryan Pope 3.1 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, BB, 3 K - four groundouts, one flyout
Mark Montgomery 2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, K - 19 of 41 pitches for strikes
Josh Spence 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB
Cody Eppley 1 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, K - 1-1 record in AAA
Sam Demel 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB

Cody Eppley's three-run eighth inning put this one out of reach for the RailRiders and Scranton's offense lost probably their hottest hitter in Thomas Neal with a tight hamstring. Chien-Ming Wang gets his second start of the season today at 6:35 pm.

Double-A Trenton Thunder: L 4-5 vs. Akron Aeros

CF Ramon Flores 0-5
2B Jose Pirela 0-4, K
RF Tyler Austin 2-4, 2B, 2 K - 12 for his last 39 (.308)
1B Kyle Roller 2-4, 2 K
3B Rob Segedin 1-3, 2B, RBI, K, 2 E5, HBP - fielding/throwing error (8th & 9th), 14 for his last 38 (.368)
DH Slade Heathcott 1-4
C Kyle Higashioka 2-4, 2B, HR, 2 RBI - batting .300 this season
SS Ali Castillo 2-4, RBI, E6 - fielding error, second of the season

Caleb Cotham 4 IP, 4 H, 4 R/3 ER 2 BB 3 K, E1 - fielding error, nine groundouts, one flyout
Danny Burawa 2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, K
Branden Pinder 2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K - faced nine batters

Close losses are frustrating when the defense fails like Trenton's did today with four errors. That's minor league baseball for you. The Thunder have today off.

High-A Tampa Yankees: L 7-9 vs. Clearwater Threshers

LF Ben Gamel 1-3, 2 BB, K, 2 SB
2B Rob Refsnyder 2-5, 2 RBI, K - 13 game hitting streak, 10 for his last 29 (.345)
C Gary Sanchez 2-5, HR, K - fourth homer of the season
DH Francisco Arcia 1-5, HR, K
1B Fu-Lin Kuo 1-5, HR, 2 K
3B Anderson Feliz 0-2, 2 BB
SS Dan Fiorito 0-3, RBI, K, HBP - batting .364 since joining Tampa

Scottie Allen 5 IP, 11 H, 7 ER, BB, 3 K, WP - five groundouts, four flyouts
John Brebbia 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, BB, K
Joel De La Cruz 2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 2 K
Manny Barreda 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, K

Giving up 16 hits to the opponent? Not the way to win a baseball game. The Yankees' offense was able to overcome a seven-run outing by their starting pitcher, but couldn't overcome the bullpen failing to keep the score there. Tampa has today off.

Low-A Charleston RiverDogs: W 6-5 vs. West Virginia Power

CF Jake Cave 1-3, 2 BB, K
SS Cito Culver 1-4, RBI, BB - 7 for his last 35 (.200)
1B Greg Bird 1-4, 2 RBI, BB, 2 K
C Peter O'Brien 1-4, BB, 2 K, PB, E2 - throwing error - 12 for his last 37 (.324)
3B Dante Bichette Jr. 1-4, K - 7 for his last 40 (.175)
RF Yeicok Calderon 1-4, 2B, RBI, K
LF Taylor Dugas 1-3, RBI, BB
2B Claudio Custodio 1-3, BB, SB, 2 E4 - fielding error, throwing error

Jose Campos 3 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, K - four groundouts, one flyout
Evan Rutckyj 3 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, K, WP- 40 of 67 pitches for strikes
Philip Wetherell 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, WP
Taylor Garrison 1.1 IP, 0 H, 1 R/0 ER, 1 BB

If you're going to commit three errors in a game, scoring five runs in one inning to help makeup for it certainly helps. Daniel Camarena gets the start for the RiverDogs today at 7:05 pm.
