Scranton falls to Pawtucket (and Buchholz), 4-3
- Sergio Mitre got the start, giving up 4 runs (3 earned) on 6 hits and walk, while striking out 3.
- Mark Melancon was lights-out in relief, pitching 2 2/3 perfect innings. Mark recorded 7 outs via the groundball, and the 8th via the strikeout.
- Ramiro Pena, recently demoted to the minors because of the acquisition of Eric Hinske, was 2 for 4. He played short tonight, but the plan is to get him some reps in the outfield to increase his versatility.
- Austin Jackson was 2 for 4 with his 14th stolen base of the year.
- Shelley Duncan was 1 for 4.
- Juan Miranda was 1 for 3 with a double and a walk.
- Jose Molina, rehabbing, was 0 for 2. After a few rehab games, he will likely replace Cervelli (who deserves to stay up) on the 25-man roster.
Trenton defeated by Erie, 9-6
- Jason Johnson got shelled, giving up 8 runs on 11 hits and 2 walks in 3 2/3 innings, with 3 strikeouts.
- Austin Krum was 1 for 4 with a walk.
- Reegie Corona was 2 for 5 with a double.
- Jorge Vazquez was 4 for 4 with a double and his 11th homer of the season. His .333/.370/.591 line is very nice, and I would like to see what he could do in AAA, since he’s not learning much in AA.
- Speaking of not being challenged in AA, Jesus Montero, catching, was 2 for 5 with another home run. This was his 5th blast in the last 4 games, and he has homered in 4 straight games, giving him 13 total on the season. The only thing I can really say about Montero is wow. He has exceeded even my most optimistic hopes for the season.
- Chris Malec was 2 for 4 with a homer.
- Edwar Gonzalez and Marcos Vechionacci were each 1 for 4.
Tampa tops Sarasota, 8-3 (7 innings, game 1)
- Hector Noesi, recently promoted, was the starter. He gave up 3 runs on 6 hits and a walk in 5 innings, with 5 strikeouts, to earn the win.
- Tim Norton struck out 3 in 2 perfect relief innings.
- Dan Brewer was 1 for.
- Austin Romine was 2 for 3 with a double and his 11th homer of the year. He also stole his 6th base. If he keeps this up, we might be talking about another top 5 catching prospect in the Yankee system.
- Damon Sublett was 1 for 3 with a solo home run and a walk.
- Brandon Laird was 1 for 3 with a double. He is hitting .323 in his last 10 games, and his average is up to .243.
- Seth Fortenberry was 2 for 4.
- David Adams was 1 for 3.
- Kevin Smith was 1 for 2 with a double and a walk.
Tampa stops Sarasota, 5-2 (game 2, 7 innings)
- Humberto Sanchez started, and struck out 2 in 2 perfect innings, while retiring the other 4 batters via groundballs.
- Mitch Hilligoss was 2 for 4 with a double.
- Austin Romine, DH’ing in the 2nd game of the doubleheader, was 0 for 1 with 2 walks, giving him a whopping 11 on the season (incidentally, equal to the number of home runs he has hit this season). The low walk totals are not great, but he has been showing more patience of late.
- Damon Sublett was 1 for 3.
- Brandon Laird was 2 for 4 with a double and a 3-run shot.
- David Adams was 2 for 3.
- Walter Ibarra was 1 for 3.
