AAA: Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees
Russell Branyan came out swinging for the Yankees and was responsible for bringing home half of their runs in a 12-8 victory over Durham. Overall, Branyan was 2-for-4 on the evening with two home runs and six RBI. However, the offense was not as a result of Branyan alone. Kevin Russo, Ronnier Mustelier, Colin Curtis, and Ramiro Pena also offered multi-hit games to power the Yankees offense. It’s a good thing that the Scranton offense was so good tonight though, because D.J. Mitchell couldn’t have pitched much worse. In 5.2 innings on the mound, Mitchell allowed eight runs on 12 hits, and managed to strike out just two batters. Despite this, Mitchell still managed to secure the victory, moving him to 5-2 on the year. Chase Whitley tossed 2.1 scoreless innings to earn his fourth hold of the season.
