Yankees Farm Report: July 17, 2011Posted: July 18, 2011
- Mets, Rockies, Astros, and Royals all had scouts at Trenton’s game tonight. Once again, make of it what you will.
Kevin Russo and Mike Lamb homered, Russo drove in two, Lamb three, and Terry Tiffee and Austin Krum each had two hits as well, Tiffee doubled and drove in a run and Krum scored twice, walked twice, and stole a base. Jesus Montero and Jorge Vazquez each had tough nights combining to go 0 for 9 with six strikeouts.
On the mound, Adam Warren struck out six and allowed three earned runs in 5.1 innings. Randy Flores relieved him and got the final two outs of the sixth. Kevin Whelan and Buddy Carlyle each threw an inning relief, Whelan allowed a run, and Logan Kensing blew the save, but still pitched two innings and struck out three. Eric Wordekemper lost it in the eleventh as he walked in the winning run. Ouch.
Zoilo Almonte got his first two Trenton hits and Addison Maruszak notched two hits himself. Austin Romine went 1 for 5 with a run scored, Damon Sublett had a hit, drew a walk, and drove in a run, and Melky Mesa doubled, scored twice, and walked. He has been red hot of late.
Manny Banuelos was on the bump and didn’t put on that good of a show for the scouts. He did strike out six, but walked five, hit a batter, and less than half of his pitches were strikes. Apparently, he has a blister so hopefully that’s why his control was off. Chase Whitley and Ryan Pope combined to throw four scoreless innings and struck out four.
Everybody in the Tampa lineup had at least one hit. Ronnier Mustelier and Cody Johnson each had three hits, Mustelier scored thrice, drove in two, and drew a walk, and Johnson scored three times, walked twice, and doubled. Rob Segedin and JR Murphy each had four hits, Segedin homered and Murphy had four ribbies. Kelvin Castro, Kyle Roller, and Luke Murton each added two hits as well.
Mikey O’Brien tossed five scoreless innings, and gave up three hits and four walks while striking out one. He also got a ridiculous eight fly outs as opposed to one ground out. Mike Gipson threw two scoreless innings in relief and Michael Solbach allowed five runs on six hits in his two frames.
Kyle Higashioka and Jeff Farnham homered and scored three runs, Kelvin DeLeon had three hits, and Kevin Mahoney, Mike Ferraro, and Garrison Lassiter each notched two. Nathan Forer got the start and yielded three runs in four innings. Kelvin Perez followed with two scoreless innings and Mark Montgomery followed with two of his own in which struck out four. Montgomery, a 2011 draft pick, has struck out more than twenty per nine innings. Talk about ridiculous. Manny Barreda allowed two runs in the ninth to blow the save, but still got the win.
Angelo Gumbs was a homer away from the cycle and drove in a run, Tyler Austin got his first Staten Island hit, scored a run, and stole a base, Casey Stevenson had two hits, and Mason Williams and Reymond Nunez each had base hits. Evan DeLuca allowed five runs on eight in hits in five innings, but still managed to strike out eight, which is his worst outing on the season. Fred Lewis allowed two runs in an inning in relief and Ben Paullus allowed a run in his two frames.
The GCL Yankees had a scheduled day off.
