AAA: SWB won 4-3, beating LV. Bruce Billings 7 IP, 2 R.  2b Jose Pirela and 1B Russ Canzler 2 h each.

AA:  Trenton lost 10-6. DH Ben Gamel 2h, 2 rbi for C Gary Sanchez.

High A: Tampa split a DH/ won 10-4 but a bad outing for Banuelos, 2/3 IP, 4 R. C Pete O’Brien double, 2 solo HR. If the Yanks are to make a deal, expect a C to be dealt. McCann has a long-term deal, then you have Cervelli (who I would deal once he gets healthy), Romine, Murphy, Sanchez and O’Brien. You can clear up the logjam and get help elsewhere by dealing someone here.  ‘

They lost the other game 9-1. ‘

Low A: Charleston split a DH. Lost 3-2.  Caleb Smith 0 R, 2 h in  5 2/3.  Both teams only had 3 hits in the game.

Won the other game 8-4. Paul O’Neill’s nephew, Mike, Triple, HR and 3 RBI (CF).
