AAA: Scranton/Wilkes-Barre
Game one of the playoffs went to the Pawtucket Red Sox, as they got to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre starter John Maine early and often to defeat the Yankees 7-4. Chased after just 4.2 innings, Maine allowed five runs on seven hits as he took the loss. After he left, Chase Whitley shut the Phillies down for 2.1 innings, before giving way to Kelvin Perez, who allowed two runs in the eighth. On offense, Corban Joseph and Ramiro Pena led the team with two hits each, but the runs came primarily from the long ball. Luke Murton, making his Triple-A debut, launched a two-run shot in the third inning. Leadoff batter Kevin Russo also had a home run in the third, providing three of the team’s four runs. The victory gave Pawtucket a 1-0 lead in the best-of-five series.

AA: Trenton Thunder
Trenton ace Brett Marshall tossed seven innings last night, but the four runs he allowed were enough to push Reading past the Thunder by a score of 4-2. With the win, Reading now takes a 1-0 lead in the best-of-five series. For Marshall, three of the four runs he allowed came by way of home runs. After Marshall left, Mark Montgomery finished up the game, tossing a scoreless inning with a pair of strikeouts. At the plate, Adonis Garcia led the team with two hits on the evening, but the only runs came from newly-promoted Ramon Flores. Just two days after making his Trenton debut, Flores took Austin Hyatt deep in the fourth inning, at the time giving the Thunder a 2-0 lead. Unfortunately for Trenton, that would be the extent of their offensive output on the day.
