The Minors. SWB’s season over. Swept out of playoffs.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

What a way to have your season end.

Needing to win to stay alive in the playoffs, and avoiding getting swept out, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders, the Yankees’ AAA team, flushed a 2-0 ninth inning lead, losing 4-2 to Indianapolis.

They wasted a superb pitching performance by Kyle Davies, who pitched eight two-hit shutout innings. Johnny Barbato came in to relieve in the top of the ninth and gave up the four runs.

LF Ben Gamel went 4 for 4. Three other players (CF Slade Heathcott, RF Aaron Judge and 3B Cole Figueroa) had two hits each.

SWB was 1 for 13 with RISP and stranded 15.

Tough way for the season to end.

Maybe with their season over, we will see a couple more callups to the big club.
