Minor league action. Tampa goes down 0-2 in their playoff series. Taillon rehabs.

AAA: The regular season is over, but AAA has some kind of 10-game Final stretch thing going on. It started last night for SWB. Strange.

Anyway, SWB’s game was suspended with SWB up 4-2. Promoted to SWB for this stretch were P Hayden Wesneski (#15 prospect), SS Oswald Peraza (#3 prospect) and INF Oswaldo Cabrera (#16 prospect).

Rehabbing Noah Syndergaard started for Syracuse, the Mets’ affiliate. Another rehabbing Met, Robert Gsellman, replaced Syndergaard.

For SWB, rehabbing Jameson Taillon started. 3 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 0 W, 2 K. Wesneski replaced him and had pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings when the game was suspended.

LF Miguel Andujar on rehab 0 for 2.
SS Peraza 0 for 2
2B Cabrera 2 for 2
RF Ryan LaMarre 2-run HR

AA Somerset and High A Hudson Valley seasons are over.

Low A: Tampa lost 6-1 and trail their championship best-of-five series two games to none. 2B Cooper Bowman (#30 prospect) 2 hits. 3B Benjamin Cowles HR. LF Kyle Battle 2 hits.


Minor League Action, 9-19-21.

AAA: SWB (68-49) beat Lehigh Valley, 5-1. Starting P JP Sears 6 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 3 H, 7 K, 1 WP.
I thought at this point in the season, he’d be shut down, but LF Miguel Andujar started another rehab stint and was 1 for 2, single, RBI and a walk.
CF Greg Allen 3 hits. DH Trey Amburgey 2 hits. RF Socrates Brito 3 hits, 2 RBI.

Low A: Tampa (73-43) lost 5-4. LF Kyle Battle 2 RBI. 1B Pedro Diaz 2 hits.

Minor League Championships. Both SWB, Trenton open with wins.

AAA: SWB got two in the bottom of the 9th to win the opener of the best-of-five International League playoff series 8-7. With one out, Juan Miranda singled and went to 2nd on an error. PR Chris Basak scored on a double by Tim Battle, who spent the year at Tampa. After Ben Broussard was intentionally walked, Matt Carson grounded into a forceout before Eric Duncan’s single won it.

Chase Wright outdueled megaprospect David Price in this one. Both went 6 IP, Wright giving up two runs, Price four. The Yankees bullpen blew a 6-2 lead by giving up five in the 8th. David Robertson gave up 3 runs in 1 1/3 IP, while Zach Kroenke didn’t get anyone out in giving up 2 runs. The win went to Mark Melancon, who pitched a scoreless top of the 9th. Shelley Duncan had two doubles and two RBI, and Ben Broussard had a two-run HR. Juan Miranda had two hits and Nick Green had three, but what a hit for Battle, who had entered the game earlier as a PR for Shelley Duncan.

AA: Trenton trying to defend the Eastern League championship they won last season. Trenton won their opener 3-1. Eric Hacker gave up 1 run on just 3 hits in 6 IP. Michael Dunn and Jhonny Nunez combined for 3 scoreless innings of relief. Chris Malec with two hits and two RBI. Two hits and an RBI for Francisco Cervelli. Three hits for Ramiro Pena.

Pinstripe Prospects: The Minor League Report.

AAA: 3-2 loss for SWB. Chase Wright (2-1, 2.41 at AAA) pitched well, but took the loss. 3 R in 6 2/3. Just 4 hits for SWB. 2 hits, 2-Run HR by Matt Carson.

AA: Trenton won 9-3. Jeff Marquez 1 R, 2 H in 5 1/3. Colin Curtis 3 RBI. 17 hits for the Thunder. Interesting note: 2B Kevin “Mad Dog?” Russo, who is going to the AFL this winter (Arizona Fall League), played LF last night. .311-2-33 this year in 251 AB for AA, 24, righty hitter. Versatility can’t hurt.

A+: Tampa lost 9-1. 1 run despite 11 hits. Just like the big club. Andres Perez 3 for 4, 2 doubles and the only RBI. Tim “Ready for” Battle 3 for 4.

A: 10-4 Charleston win. If Phil Hughes is Ty’s pet project, Jesus Montero is mine. 3 hits, double, .321. Dellin Betances 6 IP, 2 R, 4 hits, 1 walk, 4 K. (9-4, 3.67). David Williams, 2 hits, HR, 5 RBI. 2 doubles for Brad Suttle, 2 hits for Austin Romine.

A, Short Season: 20th save for switch-pitcher Pat Venditte. 1-2-3, 2 K, ERA 0.91.

Pinstripe Prospects: The Minor League Report.

AAA: I went out to Coca-Cola Park to see Phil Hughes pitch and give a report to YFCR. While we were all hoping he would do well and get called up to pitch in Baltimore next Saturday, it doesn’t look like that will happen. Phil was knocked out after 3 2/3 IP, 5 R on 8 hits, no walks, 4 K. He needs to stay at AAA a bit longer. SWB won 9-6. Chad Moeller went 4 for 5, and Nick Green and Juan Miranda (3 hits, 3 RBI) each homered. Eric Duncan had 3 hits. The Yanks ran the bases like drunken sailors, as four baserunners were thrown out, three by the RF. There was also a CS. For a while, SWB had the most expensive AAA first base coach ever—Igawa. Melky walked FOUR times. Shelley Duncan had two doubles. For Lehigh Valley, Kris Benson started, 5 1/3 IP, 5 R, 4 ER, 10 hits. Neither he or Hughes is ready yet.

AA: Old #45, the Boy in the Bubble himself, MIA for most of four years went. 11-7 win for Trenton, but C. P. pitched well. 6 IP, 1 R, 6 hits, 1 walk, 6 K. Kevin Whelan pitched the 9th, gave up 4 runs to make the score closer than it was. Trenton had an 11-1 lead after 7 1/2. Edwar Gonzalez 2 HR, 3 RBI. Kevin Russo 4 for 4. Colin Curtis double, HR, 4 RBI.

A+: 4-3 win for Tampa. No Matsui, as he was with the Yanks Sunday and will be activated on Tuesday. Alan Horne started, 3 R in 3 IP. Zach McAllister 4 shutout innings of relief for the win. 2 RBI for Tim Battle.

A: 9-5 win for Charleston. Austin Krum 3 doubles, 4 RBI.

Switch pitcher Pat Venditte picked up his 16th save in a 2-1 Staten Island win. ERA 1.05.
