Pinstriped Performances: Saturday, May 26, 2018

Due to Charleston being rained out on Saturday, there were only four games played in the New York Yankees organization. There weren’t many wins as the teams combined for a 1-3 record. In fact, it took extra innings for the one affiliate to pick up their win. Let’s take a look at some of the key performers from Saturday night’s action:

New York Yankees (MLB): The Yankees (32-16) were blown out by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, 11-4.

  • Aaron Judge was 2-for-2 with two walks and he hit a solo home run in the bottom of the first (14).
  • Brett Gardner (1-for-4) started the game with a solo home run (2).
  • Austin Romine (2-for-4) hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the second (3).
  • It was a rough night on the mound for Sonny Gray (3-4). He went 3.2 innings, gave up five runs on seven hits, struck out seven, and walked three on 86 pitches (52 strikes).
  • Jonathan Holder struck out three batters and walked one in 1.1 hitless innings of relief.
  • A.J. Cole struck out two and did not give up a hit over the final two innings.

Scranton Wilkes-Barre Railriders (Triple-A): The Railriders (21-26) were blown out by the Syracuse Chiefs 10-3 for the second straight night.

  • Tyler Wade (1-for-5) drove in a run with a base hit in the ninth (8).
  • Kyle Higashioka (0-for-3) hit a sacrifice fly in the third and now has 19 RBIs on the season.
  • Adam Warren (0-1) made his first rehab appearance and did not get out of the first inning. He only got two outs, gave up four runs on one hit, struck out one, and walked two on 30 pitches (14 strikes) in the loss.
  • Erik Swanson limited the damage to a degree. He went five innings, gave up two unearned runs on four hits, struck out a batter, and walked one on 81 pitches (52 strikes).

Trenton Thunder (Double-A): The Thunder (29-19) needed extra innings to defeat the Erie Seawolves, 4-1, in 11 innings.

  • Trey Amburgey (1-for-5) had the game-winning hit when he hit a three-run home run in the top of the 11th (4).
  • Michael King threw six shutout innings to start the game. He gave up four hits, struck out seven, and walked two on 88 pitches (53 strikes).
  • James Reeves came in after King and gave up two hits and struck out two in two innings of work.
  • While Caleb Frare (2-0) blew the save in the ninth inning, he still got the win. In two innings, he gave up one run on four hits and struck out five.
  • Jordan Foley walked two batters and the bases were loaded in the 11th. However, he got out of the jam and picked up his eighth save of the year.

Tampa Tarpons (Single-A Advanced): The Tarpons (25-22) gave up three runs in the bottom of the eighth as they lost 6-5 to the Florida Fire Frogs.

  • Alexander Palma went 2-for-3 and he drove in a run on an RBI double in the top of the fifth (10).
  • Dom Thompson-Williams was 1-for-4 and he got the scoring started with a double in the first (7). He has driven in at least one run in five of his last six games.
  • Isiah Gilliam (1-for-4) had an RBI single in the first and is now up to 28 RBIs on the year.
  • Adonis Rosa got the start and went 4.1 innings. He gave up three unearned runs on four hits, struck out five, and walked three on 76 pitches (50 strikes).
