Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: Postponed for rain
Just as the big league club escaped with a win after struggling to score runs, their Double-A affiliate did the same. Trenton had a lot more going for it as Tyler Austin homered, singled, and drew a walk, and Sebastian Valley singled and drove in a run. Dustin Fowler and Mark Payton each had a single and a double, while Dan Fiorito had a double and Juan Silva had a single.
The team's win was helped by Daniel Camarena's six-inning, no-run outing. He allowed seven hits and two walks, but kept Binghamton off the board. Caleb Smith threw 1.2 innings and only allowed one hit, and Tyler Jones allowed a hit with four strikeouts in 1.1 innings.
Tampa had a much better time scoring runs, thanks to a big game from Jake Skole. The outfielder hit two home runs and walked once. Austin Aune knocked in a run with a single, and Jorge Mateo had a sacrifice fly, but the team was otherwise helped out by three unearned runs on three errors from the Manatees. Miguel Andujar had two hits and a stolen base, Zack Zehner had two hits and two walks, and Michael O`Neill had a hit and stole a base. Wes Wilson collected two hits and Miguel Andujar had one of his own.
Luis Severino made his rehab appearance yesterday, pitching 3.0 innings, allowing two hits, and striking out two. He threw 27 of his 43 pitches for strikes, and induced four ground outs against only one fly out. Gabriel Encinas relieved him, allowing three runs on two hits and three walks in 1.1 innings of work. Matt Marsh pitched 1.2 innings, striking out four, and giving up two hits. Jordan Foley struck out two and allowed a walk in an inning of work, and Dillon McNamara gave up one run on three hits and two walks, while striking out three in 2.0 innings.
