AAA: SWB split a DH (both 7-inning games, as is the norm when the minors play doubleheaders).
Game 1: A 3-1 loss. Adam Warren 3 R in 6 IP (6-8, 3.77). Remember a prospect the Yanks had named Christian Garcia? He pitched two scoreless innings and got the save for Syracuse. SWB only managed four hits in this game, solo HR 2b Corban Joseph (.254-9-32).
Game 2: 1-0 win for SWB (Empire State, if you so wish). Chase Whitley (4), Manny Delcarmen (2) and Juan Cedeno (1) on the combined shutout. SWB only got five hits in this one, and once again, the only run was a Corban Joseph (DH this game) HR (.256-10-33).
AA: 8-3 loss, a lousy outing for Dellin Betances, 8 R in 4 IP (3-2, 5.36 at AA after being lousy at AAA). Zoilo Almonte double, HR, 3 RBI (RF, .277-18-60). 3B Dave Adams 2 hits (.317).
High A: 3-2 loss for Tampa. Nik Turley 3 R in 5 IP (8-4, 2.83). Tampa lost despite giving up just two hits. Turley walked six.
Low A: No games. Charleston is 22-26, 7 back in the season’s second half (Southern Division). They were 39-28, 6 1/2 back in the first half.
