The final night of April did not see many Yankees affiliates in action. With Tampa and Charleston having the night off and Trenton’s game being postponed, that left the big league club and the Triple-A club in action with both teams being on the losing end. Despite three combined runs being scored, there were still some good moments. Let’s take a look at the key performances from Monday night’s action:
New York Yankees (MLB): The Yankees (18-10) nine-game win streak came to a close with a 2-1 loss to the Houston Astros.
- Austin Romine (1-for-3) broke up Charlie Morton‘s no-hit bid with a base hit in the top of the sixth.
- The lone run scored by the Yankees came on an RBI single from Brett Gardner (1-for-4) in the eighth (7).
- Gleyber Torres (1-for-2, walk, run scored) had the only extra-base hit of the night for New York when he doubled to left in the eighth.
- Sonny Gray (1-2) was on the losing end of the pitchers’ duel. He went six innings, gave up two runs on four hits, struck out four, and walked three on 97 pitches (60 strikes).
- Dellin Betances and Jonathan Holder gave up one combined hit in the final two innings (Betances had the only strikeout).
Scranton Wilkes-Barre Railriders (Triple-A): The Railriders (10-13) lost their fourth straight game last night, 6-2, to the Buffalo Bison
- Tyler Wade was 2-for-4 at the plate with a walk and an RBI double in the bottom of the third (1).
- Brandon Drury was 1-for-3 with a run scored, but he was hit by a pitch in the eighth and he made three errors at third base.
- Cody Asche had the other two hits of the night (2-for-4).
- Josh Rogers (2-2) got the start and ended up taking the loss. He went six innings, gave up five runs (two earned) on seven hits, struck out four batters, and walked two on 86 pitches (61 strikes).
Trenton Thunder (Double-A): The Thunder (12-9) had their series opener against the Portland SeaDogs postponed due to field conditions. They will play a doubleheader tomorrow with Game 1 beginning at 6 p.m ET.
