AAA: Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees
The final regular season game of the season went a few innings long in a playoff preview as Pawtucket defeated Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 6-4 in twelve innings on Monday. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre used six pitchers, including reserve catcher Ryan Baker, as none threw more than three innings in a true bullpen game. With the playoffs (and a rematch beginning in Pawtucket) starting on Wednesday, neither team wanted to burn through their pen, which resulted in Baker and Sox IF Jonathan Hee finishing the game for their respective teams. At the plate, only Melky Mesa managed multiple hits, but it was a Darnell McDonald home run and Baker’s pinch-hit, eighth inning, two-run double which provided the most spark for the Yankees offense. These two teams meet again starting on Wednesday, as they begin a five-game playoff series.
