Around the System - Day 14 and 15

Note, because I was busy yesterday with Strasburg coverage, I forgot to do the around the system. To rectify that situation, I will post that day's box score below today's. Now, on with the show.

Triple-A: Syracuse 8, Scranton 1
Jason Hirsh got knocked around again (five earned runs in six innings), and the Yankees fell to the Chiefs. Kevin Whelan, who appears to be on his last chance in this organization, gave up three more runs on three hits in just 2/3 of an inning. The lesson here is: Even if you have a high-90s fastball, you'd better have something else.

Double-A: Portland 3, Trenton 2
Back-to-back bombs in the eighth from Lars Anderson and Ray Chang did the big damage in this one, taking the spotlight off an unlikely pitching duel between Lance Pendleton and Eammon Portice. On the positive side for Trenton, Brandon Laird went deep off of Bryce Cox with two outs in the ninth.

High-A: Daytona 9, Tampa 6
Jairo Heredia got lit up to the tune of six earned in three innings, and the T-Yanks couldn't recover. Trenton Lare gave up three runs on three hits in his inning of work. Neil Medchill had three hits, and Jose Pirela and Walter Ibarra each had a pair of knocks. Medchill and Corban Joseph each had two RBIs.

Low-A: Hickory 7, Charleston 6
Kelvin Perez gave up a pair of earned runs over six innings, but the bullpen -- most notably Francisco Rondon -- could not hold the lead. DeAngelo Mack went 1-for-4 with a home run and scored twice. Ray Kruml stole a base.
