Minor League Recap - 4/16

Scranton took 4 out of 5 in their long series with the Durham Bulls. The Yankees won the finale last night 6-2 behind a strong outing from starter Steven White. The right-hander allowed 2 unearned runs and 4 hits in 6 innings. Brett Gardner drove in 3 runs and Jason Lane had 3 hits.

The Yankees continued their winning ways earlier today with a 4-2 win over Charlotte. The game had an 11:15 a.m. start, but it took until the 8th inning to get the winning runs. Greg Porter lead off with a walk and scored when Brett Gardner's sacrifice bunt was thrown away for a run scoring error. Juan Miranda, who had earlier homered, singled in an insurance run to earn Heath Phillips the win. Darrell Rasner gave the Yankees a solid 5 innings in his start.

Dan McCutchen and Dave Robertson combined on a 5-hit shutout yesterday in the Trenton Thunder's 5-0 win over the Altoona Curve. In the process, McCutchen lowered his ERA to 1.02.

Altoona bounced back this afternoon with an 8-7 win. The Curve battered starter Phil Coke and reliever, and loser, Mike Gardner for 13 hits. Chris Malec and Cody Ehlers homered for the Thunder. Jose Tabata drove in 3 runs with a pair of doubles, and Austin Jackson had 2 hits.

The Tampa Yankees blew a 2-run lead in the 9th and then lost in 12 innings to the Dunedin Blue Jays, 5-4. Normally reliable closer Jon Hovis gave up tying back-to-back home runs to ruin a fine start by Mike Dunn. Dunn allowed 1 run on 2 hits in 6 innings, and struck out 8.

Ryan Sublett and Kyle Anson had 4 hits each for the Yankees. Blue Jays stud prospect Travis Snider hit his third home run of the season for Dunedin.

The Charleston River Dogs had the day off.
