For the second time in three nights, Northeastern weather wreaked havoc on the Yankees minor league schedule. Low-A Tampa was the only team to get on the field and had a difficult time of things.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders(15-6): Scranton’s matchup with Buffalo was postponed and will be made up as part of a doubleheader in September.
Somerset Patriots (15-6): The Patriots and Fisher Cats were rained out. They’ll play a twin bill tomorrow.
Hudson Valley Renegades (11-10): Rain scuttled HV’s home contest against the BlueClaws. The game will be made up tomorrow with a doubleheader.
Tampa Tarpons (15-7): The Tarpons probably wish the rain made it down to Florida. Dunedin took a 10-run lead through five innings and closed out a 14-7 drubbing at GMS Field.
