Yankees Farm Report: July 24, 2011Posted: July 25, 2011
Andrew Brackman got his first start since early June and failed. He allowed only one run on three hits and five walks over four frames. He also only threw 35 strikes out of his 73 pitches. He just continues to disappoint. Rafael Soriano tossed an inning and allowed a lead off homer, but did settle down and retire three straight hitters right after. Josh Schmidt also threw two scoreless innings and Randy Flores and Eric Wordekemper each added scoreless innings as well.
On offense, Greg Golson was the only batter who didn’t have a hit. Jesus Montero went 2 for 4 with two doubles, two runs scored, and a run driven in, Gus Molina hit a three-run homer, and Jordan Parraz went 2 for 3 with a triple, two runs score, and a run driven in. Austin Krum also scored twice, Luis Nunez drove in a run, and Mike Lamb had a hit as well.
Addison Maruszak went 3 for 3 with a double, four runs driven in, and a walk, Zoilo Almonte homered, Ray Kruml went 2 for 4 with a walk. Damon Sublett also notched a hit and scored a run. Shaeffer Hall got the start and allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits and a walk while striking out four and getting eleven ground outs over 6.1 innings. Brad Halsey followed with 1.2 scoreless innings and three strikeouts and Ryan Pope threw a perfect ninth.
Abe Almonte homered, Rob Segedin singled and scored a run, Kyle Roller singled and walked, and David Adams doubled in first game in the FSL. Eric Chavez played the entire game at third base and went 0 for 4. He is expected to re-join the Yankees on Wednesday or Thursday. Cody Johnson and Kelvin Castro also added hits. Graham Stoneburner hurled seven scoreless innings allowing two hits and two walks while striking out four. Good for him. Danny Burawa lost the game in the bottom of the ninth by giving up two runs in 1.1 innings.
Shane Brown had two doubles, scored a run, and drove one in, Anderson Feliz doubled, scored a run, and drove one in, Ramon Flores doubled, scored thrice, stole a base, and drove a run in, Gary Sanchez doubled and scored twice, and Kevin Mahoney homered. Shane Greene tossed 4.1 scoreless innings and was taken out early probably because it was hit first game off the disabled list. Michael Recchia followed with 1.2 scoreless innings and Tommy Kahnle finished things off with three strikeouts in three scoreless frames.
Ben Gamel, Zach Wilson, Reymond Nunez, and Mason Williams each had hits, Gamel and Williams each stole bases and Nunez doubled. Everyone else went hitless, Cito Culver and Angelo Gumbs drew walks. Bryan Mitchell got the start scattered nine hits over five innings while allowing two runs and striking out three. Vidal Nuno followed with three scoreless innings and four strikeouts and Phil Wetherell came on after for a perfect ninth.
The Yankees had a day off today.
