Minor League Report.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

AAA: SWB (86-50) won 8-4 over Rochester. RF Tyler Austin HR, 3 RBI. Rehabbing DH Matt Holliday 1 for 3, 2 walks. 1B Ji Man Choi 2 doubles, 2 RBI. 2B Donovan Solano 2 hits. 3B Miguel Andujar 2 hits, RBI.  (Andujar is .323-16-81 at AA/AAA this year, and in his one MLB game was 3 for 4 with 4 RBI. So the bat is there but apparently the Yanks don’t like his defense so far. He’s only 22. But given what they’ve received from Headley and Frazier….)

For those in the Lehigh Valley and who are Iron Pigs’ fans, well they have had and have (tonight) to root for SWB. Lehigh Valley is 2 back of Rochester for a playoff spot, with just a handful of games to go. So they need help from SWB.
