Recapping the Yankees' minor league affiliates' results from August 18th.

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: L 1-3 vs. Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs

It was a tough game for the RailRiders offensively, with just three players collecting the only four hits of the game. Ben Gamel hit two singles, walked and stole a base, while Jose Pirela and third baseman Cole Figueroa each hit a single apiece. He had been hitting better recently, but Aaron Judge struck out three times along with Gary Sanchez.

Eric Wooten got the loss after allowing three earned runs on six hits through five innings. He also walked four batters, recorded four strikeouts, and made a pickoff. Branden Pinder, who was optioned just a few days ago, pitched two clean innings while notching one strikeout. The last two innings of the game went to Andury Acevedo who gave up a hit and struck out two batters in the loss.

Double-A Trenton Thunder: L 3-4 vs. Bowie Baysox

The Baysox finished the night with double the number of hits that the Thunder put together, but Trenton was well on its way to winning up until the ninth inning. Starter Jaron Long had a strong outing, giving up six hits and zero earned runs through eight innings while recording five strikeouts. Two unearned runs scored early in the game after Tyler Wade made a fielding error that extended the inning. Trenton was up by one run going into the ninth inning, but Mark Montgomery immediately gave up a home run, followed by three singles and a walk to give the Baysox the walk-off victory.

Offensively, Trenton managed just five hits total. Danny Oh tripled and Tyler Austin hit a double and walked. The remaining hits were singles off the bats of Jake Cave, Dante Bichette Jr. and Cito Culver. Culver also stole a base, and Austin was picked off and caught stealing.
