AAA: Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees
John Maine got torched last night, allowing nine runs on as many hits and putting the Yankees in a hole from which they would never recover. With his latest bad performance, Maine’s ERA has jumped to 6.53 on the season. After Maine left, Lee Hyde and Kelvin Perez, both recent promotions from Trenton, combined for a total of five shutout innings to finish off the game. Offensively, the top of the line-up drove in six of Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s seven runs, including three off the bat of Corban Joseph. Kevin Russo and Kosuke Fukudome were the only two players with multiple hits on the day, and Russo also contributed a pair of runs batted in.

AA: Trenton Thunder
David Adams kept with his recent hot streak last night, going 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a home run, and both Thunder RBIs, but it wouldn’t be enough as Trenton fell to Reading 7-2. Adams, ranked 15th in our August prospect rankings, could be a longshot candidate for a September call-up if he keeps hitting. The Thunder were able to scrap together just three more hits over the course of the night, coming from Jose Pirela, Rob Segedin, and Walter Ibarra. Mikey O’Brien drew the start for Trenton, and allowed five runs (four earned) on nine hits in six innings of work. O’Brien, who saw his record drop to 4-6, struck out five. Mark Montgomery pitched another scoreless inning, striking out two more hitters along the way.

High-A: Tampa Yankees
Despite seven hits, Tampa couldn’t string anything together as they were shut out by Clearwater 4-0 on Tuesday night. Top prospects Gary Sanchez and Tyler Austin led the Yankees at the plate, with each recording a single and a double. Slade Heathcott, Kelvin de Leon and Zach Wilson were the only other Tampa batters to record a hit. Matt Tracy started on the mound for the Yankees, allowing three runs on seven hits over six innings of work. He took the loss, but demonstrated much better control last night than he has most of the season, limiting Clearwater to just one walk. All season, while Tracy has been impressive, scouts have noted that he must cut down on the walks in order to move any higher than Tampa.

Low-A: Charleston RiverDogs
Philip Wetherell gave up five runs in just four innings of work as Charleston lost to Asheville last night by a score of 5-2. Wetherell, who dropped to 5-7 on the year, now sports a 6.52 ERA on the season. Worse yet, he is just 1-5  and sporting a 7.48 ERA since being converted to a starter on July 19th. After Wetherell left, Daniel Mahoney and Charlie Short combined to toss four shutout innings, but it was too little, too late. Ben Gamel and Saxon Butler each had two hits, though Ali Castillo and Dante Bichette drove in the lone Charleston runs. For Castillo, the RBI came on his fourth home run of the season.
