Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: L 3-4 vs. Syracuse Chiefs
The RailRiders actually out-hit the Chiefs 9-5, but the bottom half of the lineup didn't do the RailRiders any favors. Catcher Gary Sanchez led the offense with a four-hit (!) night consisting of two singles and two doubles. Nick Swisher remained hot with two hits of his own, including a two-run home run to right field. The only other hits of the night came off the bats of Aaron Judge and Rob Refsnyder, though Ref, Ben Gamel, Chris Parmalee and Lane Adams all worked two walks apiece.
Chad Green got the start and looked solid, pitching four and two-thirds innings while giving up just five hits and two earned runs. The RailRiders took the lead briefly in the fifth inning before the Yankees' old friend Brendan Ryan reached on a throwing error by Parmalee. It ended up being costly as Green recorded two strikeouts after that, followed by a triple that scored two runs. James Pazos, Vinnie Pestano and Conor Mullee all pitched clean innings to finish out the game.
Double-A Trenton Thunder: W 2-0 vs. Akron RubberDucks
The Thunder could not get much of anything going at the plate against Dace Kime, despite the fact that he walked six batters and seemingly gave them plenty of chances. Jake Cave picked up the only two hits of the night, including a two-run triple.
Starter Dietrich Enns not only struck out 11 batters, but also took a no-hitter all the way to the sixth inning before the RubberDucks doubled to break it up, collecting their one and only hit of the night. Enns is still working with a perfect 0.00 ERA through his first three starts of the season.
High-A Tampa Yankees: W 4-0 vs. Daytona Tortugas
On their way to shutting out the Tortugas, the Tampa Yankees scored all of their runs before Jake Paulson had a chance to settle in. Billy Fleming and Michael O'Neill both doubled in the first inning of the game, and those would be the Tampa Yankees only extra-base hits of the game. In the second inning, Jake Skole singled and then scored on the second wild pitch of the inning.
It was a strong outing for Vicente Campos who pitched eight scoreless innings with four hits, five strikeouts and three walks. Jose Mesa worked one clean inning to finish the game.
Low-A Charleston RiverDogs: Game suspended 0-0 vs. Augusta GreenJackets
Through three innings, the RiverDogs' offense was hitless, while starter Domingo Acevedo had given up just one hit. Then the rain happened and the game was suspended and will be completed tomorrow.
