Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: L 1-2 vs. Columbus Clippers
Although the Clippers committed three errors in the game, it wasn't enough for the RailRiders to mount a comeback in a low-scoring matchup. Ben Gamel led the way with two hits while all the other singles were spread out across the lineup. There were no extra-base hits on the Scranton side. Aaron Judge and Jake Cave both went hitless in the game. Judge's batting average on the season now stands at .221.
Tyler Webb pitched 4.2 innings, allowing one run on five hits while striking out four batters. Unfortunately for Johnny Barbato, he was charged with the loss on an unearned run because of a passed ball by the catcher. New pickup Layne Somsen got into the game, working a scoreless 2.1 innings and allowing just two hits.
Double-A Trenton Thunder: L 2-3 vs. Hartford Yard Goats
Trenton got on the board first with two runs in the sixth inning, but their pitchers were just unable to hold that lead. The Thunder were out-hit 10-4 in the game. Dustin Fowler doubled and tripled, driving in a run and bringing his season average to .270. Unfortunately, he was pretty much the majority of the offense. Tyler Austin and Sebastian Valle each doubled, making every hit for the Thunder one for extra bases.
Vicente Campos allowed just one run in 5.2 innings, striking out six and allowing five hits. He did walk four batters, however. Reliever Cale Coshow was responsible for two of the Yard Goats' three runs in just 1.1 innings, earning him the loss. His ERA currently sits at 3.59 and it was his fourth loss of the season.
High-A Tampa Yankees: Off
Low-A Charleston RiverDogs: L 0-1 vs. Kannapolis Intimidators
The Charleston RiverDogs out-hit the Intimidators 9-1 Thursday night, but they did not manage to push a run across. Jeff Hendrix followed his 5-for-5 night with three hits and a walk, making him the only Charleston hitter with multiple hits in the game. Chris Gittens struck out a somewhat appalling five times. The only batter with an extra-base hit in the game was Gosuke Katoh with a double.
Daris Vargas was the hard luck loser in the game, giving up just the one run in five innings. He walked four batters and gave up just one hit. Anyelo Gomez pitched four innings without allowing a hit and walked just two batters.
