Recapping the Yankees’ minor league affiliates’ results from July 7th.

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: L 5-6 vs. Buffalo Bisons

The Scranton offense scored four runs in the fourth inning to pull even with the Bisons, but it was ultimately not enough for them to pull out a victory. Tyler Austin doubled twice and drove in two runs, and Pete Kozma drove in two runs with his first home run of the season. Although Aaron Judge went hitless on the night, he did reach base via a walk.

It was a rough start for Diego Moreno, as he gave up four earned runs in just 3.1 innings. He walked three batters and allowed two home runs. Tyler Webb and Giovanny Gallegos were responsible for the other two Bisons runs. Only Kirby Yates worked a scoreless inning for the RailRiders, keeping his Triple-A ERA at 0.00.

Double-A Trenton Thunder: W 2-1 vs. Bowie Baysox

Hits were even at eight a piece, and each team only scored in one inning. Fortunately for the Thunder, they scored one more run than the Baysox. Miguel Andujar led the way with two hits, including a double. Kyle Higashioka clubbed his ninth homer of the season and walked twice.

Jordan Montgomery was magnificent over seven innings, allowing zero runs and just six hits. Jonathan Holder came on for two innings to close out the game, surrendering Bowie’s lone run in the ninth.

High-A Tampa Yankees: W 4-1 vs. Lakeland Flying Tigers

Thairo Estrada led the way for the T-Yanks in their win over Lakeland with two hits, but Kevin Cornelius’ home run drove in three of the team’s runs to provide them with a big early lead. It was his first game with Tampa after being promoted.

James Reeves pitched only four innings in his start for Tampa, but he allowed no runs in that time.
