Baby Bomber Recap 6/8/16: Luis Severino tosses six scoreless innings as RailRiders shut out Knights

Recapping the Yankees' minor league affiliates' results from June 8th.

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: W 6-0 vs. Charlotte Knights

Luis Severino made another rehab start in Scranton and had a much better outing than last Friday. He tossed six scoreless innings and notched seven strikeouts while giving up just three hits. Giovanny Gallegos and James Pazos kept the shutout intact through the remainder of the game.

The RailRiders had a nice night offensively, too. Everyone in the lineup had a hit aside from Nick Swisher and Donovan Solano. Tyler Austin drove in half of the team's runs with a three-run bomb in the third inning, and also doubled earlier in the game. Jake Cave picked up two hits, including a triple, while Kyle Higashioka continued to swing a hot bat, hitting a double and a single of his own.

Double-A Trenton Thunder: W 5-2 vs. Binghamton Mets

Making his second start since being promoted to Trenton, Vicente Campos held the Mets to just one run on three hits through six and two-thirds innings. He also struck out four batters and walked two. Matt Wotherspoon pitched a scoreless inning and a third, but Tyler Jones got into trouble after allowing a lead-off single, followed by two walks to load the bases. Jonathan Holder was able to get three outs to end the inning and secure his second save of the season.

Dustin Fowler and Lane Adams had the biggest nights offensively. Fowler hit two doubles and a single and stole a base, while Adams hit a solo home run, drew two walks and was caught stealing. It was a two-hit night for both Tyler Wade and Matt Snyder. Wade also stole his 14th base of the season, but was also caught stealing for the second time.

High-A Tampa Yankees: Suspended due to rain

Low-A Charleston RiverDogs: L 2-3 vs. Rome Braves (11 innings)

Although the RiverDogs out-hit the Braves 10-7, the game was tied after nine and they went on to lose this one in extra innings. The RiverDogs took the early lead in the second inning when Gosuke Katoh drew a two-out walk, and Alexander Palma hit an RBI double to bring him home. The offense added just one more run in the next inning when they were aided by a wild pitch and a fielding error. Palma led the way with four totals hits, and Cesar Diaz contributed three hits, including a double. Chris Gittens had two hits on the night, and the only other RailRider to pick up a hit was Angel Aguilar.

Starter Daris Vargas had a solid outing, surrendering just four hits, including a solo home run. Anyelo Gomez was called upon to pitch four innings out of the bullpen, and he kept the game tied while giving up just one hit total. He passed the ball to David Sosebee to start the bottom of the eleventh, and that's where it all went wrong. Sosebee gave up a lead-off single then that runner advanced to second on a passed ball charged to Eduardo Navas. Another single allowed the Braves to walk off with the victory.
