Minor League Report. SWB tied for first with four games left.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

AAA: SWB (73-63) split a DH. With the split, they are tied for first in the International League North with four games to go. The loser between them and Syracuse (Mets) will most likely NOT make the playoffs as the wild card since they are 1 1/2 games behind that team right now.

Remember minor league DHs are seven-inning games. Both games went extras.

Reg. sched. game: Lost 9-5. Down 5-3, SWB scored once in the top of the sixth and then again in the top of the seventh to tie, but then in the bottom of the eighth, Chance Adams gave up a two-out grand slam to lose the game. A weird bottom of the eighth. It started with that rule of having a man start the inning at second. Adams then got a groundout but hit both of the next two batters to load the bases. After a strikeout, he gave up the grand slam.

LF Clint Frazier 2-run HR. 2 hits, solo HR for DH Wendell Rijo (tied game in top of the seventh).

Makeup of 8/28 postponement: SWB scored four in the top of the tenth to win 8-4 to preserve the tie on top of the division. LF Frazier 2 hits. DH Ryan McBroom 2 hits, 3 RBI, 2 HR (a 2-run and a solo shot). 2 hits, 2 RBI 3B Mandy Alvarez. J.P. Feyereisen (W, 10-2, 2.49) two scoreless IP, 5 K.

AA: Trenton (74-60) lost 8-2. LF Ben Ruta 2 hits, 2-run HR.

High A: Tampa (64-71) won 7-1. CF Estevan Florial 3 hits, 2 RBI. 3B Wilkerman Garcia 3 hits, 2 RBI. DH Alexander Palma 2 hits, RBI. 2B Kyle Gray 2 hits.

Starter Glenn Otto (W, 3-3, 3.20) 5 1/3 IP, 1 R, 5 H, 1 W, 7 K.

Low A: Charleston (70-66) won 10-6. CF Brandon Lockridge 2 hits. SS Oswald Peraza 4 hits. C Josh Breaux 2 RBI (2-run HR). DH Canaan Smith 2 RBI. 2B Eduardo Torrealba 3 hits, 3 RBI.

Prospects heading for the Arizona Fall League.

From MLB.com

Yankees (Surprise): Daniel Bies, RHP; Glenn Otto, RHP; Donny Sands, C; Josh Stowers, OF; Brandon Wagner, 1B

Acquired from the Mariners in an offshoot of the Sonny Gray trade in January, Stowers has a chance to have four average or better tools, with his arm the lone exception. Otto has had difficulty staying healthy but can reach 97 mph and devastate hitters with his curveball when he’s at 100 percent.

Minor League Report. Late inning blues in AAA, High A, Low A. SWB continues slumping; Garcia dominant but wild.
