Baby Bomber Recap 4/4: Two wins on Opening Night

The minor league season is here, and so is the return of this daily Pinstriped Bible feature.

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: L 8-4 vs. Pawtucket Red Sox

David Adams 2-5, 2B, BB
Corban Joseph 2-5, BB, K
Zoilo Almonte 0-4, 2 BB, E7 - fielding error
Dan Johnson 1-4, 2B, 2 BB, 3 K, SB - one intentional walk
Melky Mesa 1-6, RBI, 5(!!!) K
Austin Romine 1-3, 2 BB, K
Thomas Neal 0-4, RBI, 2 K

Vidal Nuno - 4.2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 6 K - 55 of 79 pitches for strikes, was on 80-pitch limit
Sam Demel 1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 3 K
Mark Montgomery 1 IP, 0 H, 1 K - 5 of 6 pitches for strikes in Triple-A debut
Jim Miller 1 IP, 4 H, 5 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 2 HR

The RailRiders forced extra innings in the first game at their new stadium, but Jim Miller was awful - giving up five runs in the top of the 10th. They look to even the series against Pawtucket tomorrow at 7:05. Dellin Betances gets the start for Scranton.

Double-A Trenton Thunder: W 13-5 vs. Portland Sea Dogs

Slade Heathcott 0-6, K
Ramon Flores 1-6, 2 K
Tyler Austin 1-4, 2B, RBI, BB, 2 K
JR Murphy 1-4, HR, 3 RBI, BB, K
Kyle Roller 1-3, HR, 3 RBI, 2 BB
Rob Segedin 1-3, HR, 2 RBI, BB, K - sac fly
Jose Pirela 0-4, BB, K
Neil Medchill 3-5, 2B, HR, 4 RBI, K

Nik Turley 2.2 IP, 4 H, 5 R/4 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, HBP - not much better than the last time we saw him in ST
Dan Burawa 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 3 K
Shaeffer Hall 2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, BB, 2 K
Branden Pinder 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 3 K - 9 of 14 pitches for strikes

The Thunder offense is scary this year. Neil Medchill hit a homer off our old pal, Daniel Bard. Nik Turley's struggles continue after his disastrous outing against the Orioles in big league camp. The Thunder take on the Sea Dogs again tomorrow at 6 pm in Portland.

High-A Tampa Yankees: W 7-4 vs. Lakeland Flying Tigers

Mason Williams 1-4, RBI, BB, 2 K - first action since season-ending shoulder surgery
Angelo Gumbs 1-5, 2 K, 2 E4 - one fielding error, one throwing error
Ben Gamel 2-4, 2B, RBI, K
Gary Sanchez 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI, SB

Ali Castillo 2-4

Bryan Mitchell 5 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5 K - six groundouts, two flyouts
Fred Lewis 2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, BB, K
Nick Goody 2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, BB, K - blown save, but got the win

Gamel, Gumbs, and Castillo were all seeing their first High-A action tonight. Nick Goody blew the save by allowing an inherited runner to score, but ultimately picked up the win. The Yankees take on the Flying Tigers again tomorrow at 7:11 pm in Lakeland.

Low-A Charleston RiverDogs: Postponed for rain vs. Greenville Drive

Double-header scheduled for Saturday afternoon.
