High-A Tampa Yankees: W 11-6 vs. Lakeland Flying Tigers

The Tampa Yankees won the day by outhitting their opponent 14-13. The offense was led by first baseman Mike Ford, who collected four RBI thanks to a three-run home run in the seventh inning. Center fielder Jake Skole hit a two-run home run on his way to a three-hit, three-RBI night, while Michael O`Neill also collected three hits and Austin Aune brought in two runs. Shortstop Jorge Mateo collected two hits–one of which was a triple–and a walk. Despite the offensive outburst, the lineup still struck out a total of 16 times against the Flying Tigers.

The Yankees are looking to transition Chance Adams into a starting pitcher, but so far things have gone poorly after allowing six runs on six hits over 3.1 innings. Joey Maher allowed six hits and a walk, but kept the Tigers off the board. Jacob Lindgren pitched a clean inning of relief as he attempts to make it back to the big league picture. Matt Marsh was able to nail down the save after 2.0 innings to finish out the game.

Low-A Charleston RiverDogs: L 0-8 vs. Columbia Fireflies

It was an ugly loss for the Charleston RiverDogs as the offense was no-hit by the Columbia Fireflies. The team's only base runners were first baseman Chris Gittens and left fielder Kendall Coleman, who managed to draw walks. The RiverDogs struck out 13 times and never challenged the Columbia pitching. Meanwhile, their pitching struggled all night when starter Josh Rogers got off to a bad start, allowing a three-run home run in the first inning. He allowed four runs on five hits and a walk in five innings overall. The bullpen was not any better when Claudio Custodio allowed a run on two hits and a walk and David Palladino surrendered three runs on two hits and two walks over, each on one inning of work. Willie Gabay closed out the game with another run on three walks in over two innings. It was pretty bad.
