Scranton & Trenton were both off tonight.
Gary Sanchez had three hits, including a double, and two runs batted in as Charleston scored a run in the 9th to defeat Delmarva, 5-4.
The double was his 11th of the season and he is now hitting .354 on the year. He has still yet to homer.
Struggling Angelo Gumbs went 2-for-4 with a run scored and two stolen bases, giving him 10 on the season. Mason Williams went 1-for-3 with a stolen base, two runs scored, and two walks. The day after I brag about his strikeout rate, he ends up striking out twice.
Strong start for Scottie Allen: 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K as he lowered his ERA to 3.77. Anything the Yankees get out of the 20-year old Allen will be a bonus, as he was acquired for Juan Miranda. In 31 innings this season, he has allowed 17 runs (13 earned) on 31 hits while walking 11 and striking out 23. ——– Tampa:
Rob Segedin had three more hits, including a double, but it wasn’t nearly enough as Tampa lost to Bradenton, 10-5.
Segedin is now hitting .314 on the season.
Kyle Higashioka connected on a two-run home run, while Eduardo Sosa and Neil Medchill each had an RBI triple in the loss.
Sean Black made his first start of the season, and was torched: 2.2 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 2 K.
Interestingly enough, three Tampa relievers all made their season debuts tonight – possibly due to the fact that Tampa played an 18-inning game on Sunday. The most effective was 27-year old left-hander Alex Smith, who tossed three scoreless innings. I have no idea where he is from or how he got here.
