Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: Off
Double-A Trenton Thunder: Off
High-A Tampa Yankees: W 8-3 vs. Fort Myers Miracle
The T-Yanks jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in their first inning against Fort Myers, and they never looked back from there. The team recorded another three runs in the third inning that would ultimately cement their victory. Mason Williams and Thairo Estrada each at three hits and one RBI each. That brings Williams’ average in his rehab stint with Tampa to .303. Left fielder Zack Zehner recorded two hits, including a double, and drove in two runs.
Will Carter allowed two runs on seven hits in six innings. He walked no one and struck out three batters. Caleb Frare and Angel Rincon pitched two innings and one inning, respectively, and Frare was responsible for the only other Miracle run on one hit.
Low-A Charleston RiverDogs: W 3-2 vs. Rome Braves (10 innings)
It took ten innings for the RiverDogs to get past the Braves, but they ultimately came home with the victory. Mandy Alvarez doubled to drive in the game-winning run for Charleston’s seventh walk-off of 2016. Alexander Palma led the offense with two hits, but Hoy Jun Park doubled and walked three times.
Domingo German pitched five scoreless innings, allowing just one hit. He struck out three batters. German is attempting to return from Tommy John surgery. Cody Carroll relieved German, pitching the game’s final five innings. He allowed seven hits and two runs.
Short Season-A Staten Island Yankees: L 0-7 vs. Lowell Spinners
Staten Island was held to six hits and zero runs in their loss to Lowell on Wednesday. Drew Bridges was the lone batter to reach base more than once, with two hits. Chris Godinez and Timmy Robinson did have doubles in the game, but there was no one to knock them in.
Drew Finley was roughed up in his 3.2-inning start, allowing all seven runs on just eight hits. He was responsible for all the hits and all the runs in the game. Finley allowed two home runs before being pulled. The trio of Claudio Custodio, Brian Trieglaff, and Eduardo Rivera closed out the game without allowing a runner to reach via hit or walk, but the damage was already done by that point.
Rookie Advanced Pulaski Yankees: L 1-5 vs. Greeneville Astros
Pulaski was held to four hits and one run on Wednesday, which is obviously going to result in a loss more often than not. Josh Gardiner had half the team’s hits, and Dermis Garcia drove in the Yankees’ only run with his second double of the season. It was his tenth run batted in.
Starter Nick Nelson surrendered two runs on four hits in just 2.2 innings of work. His ERA for the (very short) season so far stands at 4.91. Rafael Lara was only a bit better, allowing one run in 3.1 innings of relief. Jeff Degano also fared pretty poorly, allowing another two runs to Greeneville in just one inning of work. The lone pitcher for Pulaski to not allow a run in the game was Greg Weissert, who completed a clean final inning to close out the game.
