Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: W 5-2 vs. Buffalo Bisons
Hits and errors were even in the RailRiders' win over Buffalo on Tuesday, but Scranton managed to push more runs across to pull even at 13-13 on the season. Gary Sanchez drove in three runs on two hits, a double and a home run. The homer was his third of the year. Rob Refsnyder, playing right field for the first time in years, picked up two hits to bring his season average to .247 after a very rough start. Sanchez was responsible for the team's only error and Aaron Judge did not play.
Chad Green turned in a great performance with six innings of one-run ball. He allowed four hits and struck out two. Tyler Olsen pitched two scoreless innings of relief out of the bullpen before turning the game over to Conor Mullee, who allowed one run in one inning of work.
Double-A Trenton Thunder: L 2-4 vs. Akron RubberDucks
A four-run sixth inning really doomed the Thunder in their loss to Akron, allowing their narrow lead to slip away and more all in one inning. Ronald Herrera held the RubberDucks scoreless for five innings before things got out of hand. He lasted 5.2 innings and was charged with all four runs. Jonathan Holder and Matt Tracy finished off the game without allowing a run, but the offense was not able to come back.
Tyler Wade and Tyler Austin each had two hits a piece for Trenton. One of Austin's hits came via his first home run of the season. Only Lane Adams and Kyle Higashioka recorded hits in addition to Wade and Austin. Adams and Wade each stole a base, and Cito Culver was charged with his fifth error of the season.
The T-Yanks scored one run in six different innings and needed an extra frame to get past the Threshers on Tuesday. Miguel Andujar was the star of the show on offense with four hits including two doubles and a home run. The dinger was his fifth of the year. Tampa also got home runs from Jorge Mateo (3rd) and Abiatal Avelino (3rd), as well as a stolen base from Mateo. The team did commit two errors, one by Andujar and one by Billy Fleming, but they were able to overcome it in the end.
Brody Koerner allowed two runs on five hits in 7.1 innings of work. Pitching that deep into games at the low levels of the minors rarely ever happens. He walked no one and lowered his ERA to 2.03. James Reeves was first out of the bullpen for Tampa, and he allowed two runs and only recorded two outs. Dillon McNamara's day only went slightly better, allowing an unearned run and getting charged with the blown save. He struck out four batters in two innings, and the run wasn't really his responsibility.
