The winning streak has reached 10.
Bryan Mitchell dazzled over five innings, while Mason Williams, Anderson Feliz (back to back) and Tyler Austin all homered as Charleston pulled away from Lexington, 9-4.
Mitchell didn’t allow a run on two hits while walking two and striking out seven. In four starts, he is 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA (14.2 IP, 8 H, 7 R, 4 ER, 0 HR, 11 BB, 15 K). He pretty much has two brilliant starts and two awful ones on his ledger.
Williams went 4-for-4 on the night, adding two singles and a double. He also drew a walk and is hitting .347/.375/.507 in 75 at-bats with only four strikeouts and a 8-for-9 stolen base rate. Very nice.
Feliz also singled and scored two runs and is up to .296/.367/.444 in 54 at-bats. He is probably one of the sleeper prospects at this level.
Austin has been slumping lately but is still at .354/.391/.800 on the year. 15 extra-base hits in 65 at-bats. Wow.
Angelo Gumbs added two hits, including a double (.232/.313/.357), while catcher Francisco Arcia had two hits and two runs batted in.
The only negative was the outing of Ben Paullus in relief: 0.2 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 0 K. —– Scranton:
Down 5-0 early, Scranton stormed back vs. Pawtucket tonight to take a 8-6 victory.
Jack Cust homered, drew two walks, and drove in three in the victory. Francisco Cervelli had two hits, three runs batted in, and a walk. Colin Curtis singled, walked, scored two runs, and stole two bases.
Adam Warren struggled through five innings tonight: 9 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 3 HR. His ERA rose to 6.10 (20.2 IP, 27 H, 14 R, 14 ER, 4 HR, 9 BB, 13 K).
Chase Whitley earned his third win since joining Scranton by throwing two innings, allowing no runs on a hit while striking out two. In 13.2 innings overall this year, he has allowed three runs on nine hits while walking four and striking out 16.
Adam Miller made his Yankees debut, tossing a scoreless inning while striking out one. At one time, he was a big prospect in the Indians organization but has been derailed. ———– Trenton:
Cody Johnson was a one-man wrecking crew tonight, homering and driving in all four Trenton runs…but it was far from enough in a 10-4 loss to Erie.
Johnson is hitting .308 with five home runs.
Ronnier Mustelier added two hits (a double and a triple) and two runs scored.
Preston Claiborne pitched poorly in this one: 1.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 1 K as his ERA rose to 3.86 (11.2 IP, 12 H, 10 R, 5 ER, 0 HR, 7 BB, 15 K)
Ryan Flannery worked the final 1.1 innings, allowing no runs on one hit while striking out two. His ERA dipped to 0.87 (10.1 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 8 K) ————- Tampa:
Zach Nuding tossed six impressive innings while Rob Segedin continued his torrid hitting as Tampa cruised by Brevard County, 7-2.
Segedin had two doubles, two runs batted in, and two runs scored as his average rose to .315. He has a modest five-game hitting streak (9-for-19, 3 doubles, 2 home runs)
Shane Brown doubled and drove in two runs, while Eduardo Sosa went 2-for-4 with a double and run scored.
Nuding allowed two runs on seven hits, while walking three and striking out seven. He now has a 1.29 ERA (14 IP, 11 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 HR, 5 BB, 19 K)
Shawn Black earned the save with three scoreless innings, allowing two hits while walking one and striking out three.
