Minor League Action. Tough losses for SWB and Somerset.

First off apologies. The milb.com site had that the Eastern League (AA) Finals were to start tonight, and that is what I previously reported. But with both semi-finals ending in 2-game sweeps, Game 1 of the Finals was moved up and began last night. Sorry. The remaining games are as previously reported. Game 2 will be Tuesday, with Somerset needing to win to stay alive.

AAA: SWB lost 1-0 to Lehigh Valley. A tough loss, because it dropped SWB 1 1/2 GB with only a few games left in the season.

SWB only got one hit.

Britton was limited to 15 pitches for his rehab. Faced two batters. Got a 1-3 groundout and a strikeout.

The 2023 World Baseball Classic has announced its coaching staff for Team USA. MLB Network’s Mark DeRosa will be the manager, and he will have Ken Griffey, Jr. as the hitting coach. Ex-Yankees Andy Pettitte (pitching coach) and Dave Righetti (bullpen coach) will also be on the staff.

Speaking of Pettitte, his son Jared this week was one of the pitchers in a combined no-hitter in the Florida Complex League (a league below Low A) for the Marlins’ affiliate.
