AAA: SWB won 7-2. Bryan Mitchell (3-1, 2.88) 2 R in 5 IP. HRs by 1B Kyle Roller and RF/3B Adonis Garcia, who had 3 hits and 3 RBI. LF Taylor Dugas had three hits.
Michael Pineda should be pitching for SWB on Sunday.
AA: Trenton won 5-1. Good news. It seems like Manny Banuelos may finally be coming around after that Tommy John surgery. In his last three appearances, Banuelos has pitched 14 innings, has given up just two runs, only one of them earned, on just three hits. He has walked four and struck out 11 in that timespan (July 22nd on). Last night he pitched five innings, gave up 1 R, 1 H (a HR), three walks and four K. I wouldn’t expect him as a late season callup, but it seems like he may finally may be getting back to what he was before the surgery. Hopefully it is a good sign for 2015 for AAA or maybe later in 2015, the majors. It was BanuAelos’ first win of the season (1-3, 4.37). 3 hits, solo HR, RF Tyler Austin. SS Ali Castillo with a three-run HR.
High A: 6-4 win for Tampa. LF Anderson Feliz 2 hits, HR, 3 rbi. 1B Greg Bird 3 hits, rbi. SS Cito Culver 4 hits. RF Aaron Judge and C Trent Garrison each had two hits.
Low A: Charleston won 4-2. CF Mark Payton 3 hits. SS Tyler Wade, 3B Miguel Andujar and 1B John Murphy two hits each, rbi for Wade and Andujar. LF Michael O’Neill (Paul’s nephew) 2 RBI.
