Scranton beats Buffalo, 2-1
- Jason Hirsh continued his impressive pitching, giving up a run on 6 hits in 6 innings of work, with 4 strikeouts. Since being acquired from Colorado, the 6’8″ righty is 3-0 with a 1.71 ERA, and 16 strikeouts against 4 walks in 21 innings. His one major problem is the flyball, as he has a .42 GO/AO ratio.
- Mike Dunn continued his strong AAA pitching, giving up a hit in 2 scoreless. Since he was added to the 40-man roster in the offseason, Dunn will likely be called up to the bigs when the rosters expand on September 1.
- Jon Albaladejo struck out the side in a perfect 9th.
- Kevin Russo was 3 for 4 with a double. He’s hitting .340 on the season with a .861 OPS, and given his versatility in the infield, it’s not too hard to imagine Russo being a useful player in the bigs. Probably not with the Yankees though, as Jerry Hairston and Ramiro Pena are ahead of him in the utilityman depth chart.
- Austin Jackson was 1 for 4 with a double, and his average has fallen below .300.
- Yurendell de Caster was 3 for 4.
- Chris Stewart was 1 for 3.
Trenton tops New Hampshire, 5-4 (7 innings, game 1)
- Lance Pendleton started, giving up 2 runs on a hit and 4 walks in 3 1/3 innings, with 4 strikeouts.
- Kanekoa Texeira gave up 2 runs on 5 hits and a walk in 2 2/3 innings, with 3 strikeouts.
- Austin Krum was 1 for 3 with a walk and a double.

- Noah Hall was 1 for 3 with a homer.
- Chris Malec was 2 for 3.
- Edwar Gonzalez was 1 for 3.
Trenton falls to New Hampshire, 7-2
- Jeremy Bleich continued his AA struggles, giving up 6 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks in 3 innings, raising his ERA to 6.47 since being promoted.
- Grant Duff, who will likely play in the Arizona Fall League, pitched 3 innings, giving up an unearned run on a walk, and striking out 1. He has reportedly been hitting the high 90′s with his fastball, which is exciting.
- Austin Krum, Matt Cusick, Noah Hall, and Chris Malec were 1 for 3.
- Eduardo Nunez was 2 for 3.
- Marcos Vechionacci was 1 for 2 with a walk and his 19th error.
Tampa over Lakeland, 3-1 (7 innings, game 1)
- DJ Mitchell kept doing his thing, giving up 4 hits and a walk in 5 shutout innings, and striking out 4. He also recorded 10 groundball outs against just 1 flyout, so clearly his sinker was working today.
- Brad Rulon walked 1 and struck out 1 in 2/3 shutout innings.
- David Adams was 1 for 4.
- Austin Romine was 1 for 3.
- Damon Sublett was 1 for 3 with a double.
- Kevin Smith was 2 for 3 with a double.
- Luis Nunez was 2 for 3, and was caught stealing.
Tampa defeats Lakeland, 10-3 (7 innings, game 2)
- Jairo Heredia got the win, giving up a run on 8 hits and 2 walks in 5 innings, with 3 strikeouts. Since being promoted to Tampa after missing most of the season, the 19 year-old righty has given up just 1 run in 12 innings.
- Pat Venditte struck out 1 in a perfect inning of relief.
- David Adams was 2 for 3 with a double and a homer.
- Austin Romine was 1 for 3 with a walk.
- Damon Sublett was 1 for 4 with a double.
- Brandon Laird was 1 for 3 with a walk.
- Kevin Smith was 2 for 4.
- Seth Fortenberry was 1 for 3 with a walk.
- Jose Gil was 2 for 3.
Charleston edges Augusta, 14-13
- Cory Arbiso got bombed, giving up 8 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks in only 1 2/3 innings. Ouch. That’ll ruin a nice ERA.
- Manny Banuelos got the win, holding the hot Augusta bats scoreless through 2 innings, while striking out 3 and giving up a hit and a walk.
- Jose Pirela was 3 for 6, raising his average to .301.
- Abe Almonte was 4 for 6 with a double and a triple, boosting his average to .263. Almonte has been hot in the month of August, batting .351 with a .856 OPS. If he can finish strong and maintain this performance, I might be willing to forgive his rough start.
- Corban Joseph was 4 for 5 with a throwing error. He is back over .300, to .301.
- Melky Mesa was 1 for 4.
- Taylor Grote was 2 for 4 with a walk and a double.
- Addison Maruszak was 1 for 3 with 2 walks.
- Garrison Lassiter was 0 for 5.
- Jeff Farnham was 1 for 5.

Staten Island blanked by Hudson Valley, 1-0 (game 1, 7 innings)
- Adam Warren was the hard luck loser, giving up a run on 4 hits and 2 walks in 5 innings, with 7 strikeouts. He has been dominant since he started pitching for SI, with a 1.13 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP, and has also kept the ball on the ground with a 2.63 GO/AO ratio.
- Neil Medchill had 1 of the Yankees’ 3 hits, goign 1 for 3.
- Carmen Angelini and Justin Milo were 1 for 2. Angelini got picked off, which hurts in a game that ends up being decided by 1 run.
Staten Island defeats Hudson Valley, 8-2
- Matt Richardson started, giving up 2 runs on 6 hits and 3 walks in 4 innings, with 1 strikeout.
- Gavin Brooks got the win, lowering his ERA to 0.79 with 2 scoreless innings.
- Jimmy Paredes was 1 for 4.
- Deangelo Mack, Neil Medchill, and Luke Murton were each 2 for 3. Murton and Mack also walked.
- Kelvin Castro was 1 for 3 with a double.
- Hector Rabago was 2 for 3.
- Emerson Landoni was 2 for 4 with a double.
The GCL was off today, but hopefully Slade Heathcott will make his debut sometime next week.
