Sunday’s minor league action.

AAA: No luck for SWB, as they were supposed to complete a suspended game then play a new one. The suspended game was picked up in the second inning, no score. They only made it into the fifth, still no score, and the game had to be suspended again. The regularly scheduled game was postponed.

AA: Somerset (40-25) lost 8-7. Starter Ken Waldichuk has been really good this year, and was for five innings, but he then gave up a 3-run HR in the sixth. Guess he was due for a so-so outing. 3B Oswaldo Cabrera 3 hits, 2 RBI, a 2-run HR. CF Brandon Lockridge 2 hits. LF Michael Beltre 2 RBI. RF Isiah Gilliam 3 hits.

High A: Hudson Valley (43-23) won 9-4. RF Jake Sanford 2 hits, RBI, solo HR. CF Elijah Dunham 3 hits. LF Pablo Olivares 2 hits, 2 RBI, 1B Chad Bell a 3-run HR. C Saul Torres 3 -run HR.

Low A: Tampa (45-20) won 5-4. DH Everson Pereira 2 for 2, 2 RBI. RF Ryder Green 3 hits.

Minor League Report. The Martian takes one to outer space.

Since the Yanks needed to bring up a lot of guys from SWB because of COVID, it had a residual effect. Guys had to be brought up to SWB, etc.

AAA: SWB (41-21) won 7-2. CF Estevan Florial 2 hits, 2 RBI, both solo HR. C Donny Sands (just brought up) 3 hits, solo HR. DH Matt Pita 2 hits, 3 RBI, a 3-run HR.

AA: Somerset (40-23) lost 6-4. SS Oswald Peraza 2 hits, RBI. CF Brandon Lockridge (just recently promoted) 3 hits, 2 RBI, solo HR. RF Michael Beltre 2 hits, solo HR. 1B Max Burt 2 hits.

High A: Hudson Valley (41-23) won 8-7. Recently promoted SS Anthony Volpe (2019 1st round pick) 4 hits, 2 doubles, RBI. LF Elijah Dunham solo HR. DH Josh Breaux 2 hits, 2 RBI, 2-run HR. RF Jake Sanford (just promoted) 2 hits, 2 RBI, solo HR. 3B James Nelson 2 hits, RBI.

Low A: 18 year old Jasson Dominguez is the Yankees’ top prospect. Nicknamed “The Martian”, the Yanks signed him two years ago for $5.1MM. His skills, power and speed, have drawn comparisons to Mickey Mantle, Mike Trout and Bo Jackson. He played in the Futures Game before ever even joining Low A. Last night he hit his first professional HR as Tampa (44-19) won 13-4.

Dominguez 2 hits, 2 RBI, a 2-run HR. .438 at Low A so far (7 for 16). He was 4 for 20 in the FL Complex League before going to Tampa, so 11 for 36 so far. It will be interesting to see how fast he rises. Remember, just 18.


Also in this game: 2B Trevor Hauver 2 hits, 2 RBI. CF Everson Pereira 2 hits. RF Aldenis Sanchez 4 hits, 3 RBI. 1B Pedro Diaz 2 RBI. LF Evan Alexander 3 hits, 3 RBI. Nelvin Correa 4 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 5 K.

Game 70. Yanks overcome 4-1 deficit for a 7-5 win. Voit to return Tuesday.





Gio Urshela overcame getting a splinter in his eye early in the game to hit a key late-inning HR, and the Yankees (37-33, 3rd, 5 1/2 back) overcame a 4-1 deficit to defeat Oakland 7-5 yesterday. One good thing: The Yanks were once 9 back, and it’s now 5 1/2.

A couple of different Yankee fan clubs were at the game.

In the middle of the game, Gio’s bat splintered as he GIDP. A piece of the bat got into his eye and, in pain, Gio had trouble trying to run to first, enabling the A’s to turn two. After getting the splinter removed and presumably some eye wash, Urshela later homered.

Domingo German was shaky. He gave up a HR to the second batter of the game, and Oakland had a quick 1-0 lead.

He gave up another HR in the top of the fourth, and the A’s were up 2-0.

The Yanks got a run back in the bottom of the fourth. Aaron Judge singled, and an out later, moved to second on a WP. Giancarlo Stanton walked, and Urshela (after the bat incident, which happened in the second inning) singled in Judge.

German then gave up two runs in the top of the fifth and the A’s were up 4-1. But here is where Nestor Cortes, Jr. became the savior of the game.

With the Yanks down 4-1, and runners on first and third with no one out, Cortes struck out the next two batters and got a fly out to keep it at 4-1. Cortes pitched three scoreless innings of relief to keep the Yankees in the game.

Gary Sanchez led off the bottom of the sixth with his 11th HR of the season to make it 4-2. The comeback was underway.

The Yanks tied it up in the seventh. Clint Frazier led off the inning with a double, and two outs later, Judge singled him in. Sanchez walked, then Stanton singled to tie up the game.

In the bottom of the eighth, Urshela homered (9) to lead off the inning. PH Chris Gittens walked, and Tyler Wade then pinch-ran for Gittens. Frazier walked, and Brett Gardner bunted both runners over. D.J. LeMahieu singled both runners in to make it 7-4.

The Yanks would need those insurance runs, since the A’s got a run off of Aroldis Chapman in the top of the ninth before Chapman closed out the game. Not before manager Aaron Boone got ejected for arguing balls and strikes, though.

LeMahieu 2 RBI
Judge 2 hits, RBI
Sanchez solo HR (11)
Stanton 2 for 2, 2 walks, RBI
Urshela 2 hits, 2 RBI, solo HR (9)
Frazier 2 hits.


German 4+ IP, 4 R, 7 H, 2 W, 6 K. Gave up 2 HR. 4.22
Cortes 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 3 K. 1.46 Saved Yankees in this game.
Green (W, 2-4) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 3 K. 2.55
Chapman (S, 15) 1 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 1 W, 2 K. 2.05
