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.
