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.

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.

First the Futures game. Two Yankees prospects were in the game. CF Jasson Dominguez went 0 for 3. Lineout, two strikeouts. Dominguez is just 18, and just started his career about two weeks ago (he is in the Florida Complex League). He is the first player to be in the Futures game without even having played in a full-season league. Pitcher Luis Medina can hit the high 90’s/ low 100’s with his fastball. He needs control and command. He pitched a scoreless inning, striking out two, but also gave up two hits and a walk. The MLB draft is on. The Yankees’ first round pick was Trey Sweeney, a lefty-hitting SS. AAA: SWB (37-20) lost 9-8 in 10 innings. RF Ryan LaMarre 2 hits. DH Socrates Brito 3 hits. LF Greg Allen 2 hits. 3B Armando Alvarez 2 RBI. SS Kyle Holder 2 hits, RBI. 1B Brandon Wagner 2 hits, 5 RBI, a 2-run HR. AA: Somerset (38-21) lost 1-0 in 10 innings. SS Oswald Peraza 2 hits. RF Thomas Milone 2 hits. High A: Hudson Valley (39-20) lost 10-3. Low A: Tampa (40-18) won 6-1. Relievers Edgar Barclay & Nick Paciorek combined for six scoreless and hitless innings and combined for 10 strikeouts. Combined with two other pitchers, Tampa struck out 16 and gave up only 2 hits. DH Everson Pereira 3 hits. 1B Andres Chaparro 2 for 2, walked 3X, 3 RBI. C Carlos Narvaez 2 hits, RBI.
