C Kyle Higashioka 2 hits, solo HR. RF Zach Zehner 2 hits, rbi.

Michael King gave up two 2-run HRs in the second and took the loss.

AA: Trenton advances to the Eastern League finals after sweeping Reading in the first round of the Eastern League playoffs with a 12-2 win.

Because of Hurricane Dorian, both Luis Severino and Dellin Betances got rehab work in with Trenton instead of SWB (who was in the Carolinas).

AAA: SWB (75-65) lost 5-3 while Syracuse (Mets) won, so both teams finished tied for the International North lead what was supposed to be the end of the regular season. A one-game playoff for the division title will be tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon (1:05) at SWB. It is sudden-death. The loser does NOT qualify for a wild card. The winner will face Durham (Rays) at Durham in the first playoff round on Wednesday night.

1B Edwin Encarnacion 0 for 4 on rehab. He packed his bags after the game to head to the Bronx and rejoin the Yankees.

3B Mandy Alvarez solo HR. 2B/1B Gosuke Katoh 2 hits.

Low A: Charleston (73-66) finished their season. The season finale, scheduled for Labor Day, was cancelled due to rain, as Hurricane Dorian affected this too. Charleston didn’t make the playoffs.

Minor League Report. Encouraging outing by Loaisiga.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (64-53) lost 10-2 but the biggest story of the game is that Jonathan Loaisiga pitched well.

Loaisiga no-decision 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 4 K.

Could he be used as an “opener” in the postseason? Or in another capacity?

As you may guess by the final score, after he left, things didn’t go well. Brody Koerner gave up 10 runs on 16 hits in 5 2/3 IP, inc. 3 HR. Ugh.

SS Thairo Estrada 2 hits. DH Ryan McBroom 2 RBI. CF Billy Burns 3 hits.

AA: Trenton (62-54) won 5-3. 1B Chris Gittens 3 hits, RBI. RF Isiah Gilliam 2-run HR. 3B Max Burt 2 hits.

High A: Tampa (52-62) lost 6-4. 3B Oswaldo Cabrera 2 hits. 2B Diego Castillo 2 hits. LF Leonardo Molina 2 hits, 2 RBI.

Starter Luis Gil 4 scoreless innings, no decision. 1-0, 4.85 at Tampa, but 5-5, 2.72 between Low A Charleston and High A Tampa this season in 20 starts. Gil, 21, RHP, has 123 K in 96 IP. Maybe three years away? But someone to keep an eye on.

Low A: Charleston (60-57) won 9-8. SS Oswald Peraza 2 hits. LF Canaan Smith 3 hits, 3 RBI, 2-run HR, .319. I am surprised he hasn’t been promoted to Tampa right now. (20, .319-9-61, lefty bat). 2B Eduardo Torrealba 2 RBI.

Minor League Report. Tough rehab starts for Loaisiga, King.

Since the Yankees’ game will be delayed an hour with a rain delay….I got most of this done during the delay, waited for other games to finish.

AAA: SWB (64-49) beat Lehigh Valley 12-5. 2B Thairo Estrada 4 hits, RBI. RF Ryan McBroom 2 hits, 2 RBI, 2-run HR (.325-19-45), 39 year old C Erik Kratz 2 hits, 6 RBI, 3-run HR, DH Francisco Arcia 3 hits. 1B Gosuke Katoh 3 hits, 3 RBI, solo HR.

Unfortunately, NOT a good outing for starter Jonathan Loaisiga.

AA: Trenton (59-53) lost 13-7. 2B Hoy Jun Park 2 hits. LF Ben Ruta 2 RBI. RF Isiah Gilliam 2 RBI, a solo HR. 3B Max Burt 2 hits.

Not a good outing for starter Michael King, either.

Low A: Charleston (57-56) scored twice in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game at two and then scored in the bottom of the tenth to win it 3-2. DH Mickey Gasper 2 hits. 2 hits, RBI for 3B Welfrin Mateo. He had the GW hit, a walkoff double.

Harold Cortijo 5 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 3 W, 5 K.  2.79
Tim Hardy 3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 2 W, 2 K.  2.70
