Around the System
Jason Hirsh flirted with a no-hitter before he allowed a home run to Corky Miller in the eighth. Still, one run over 7 2/3 was enough for the win on this night, before Aroldis Chapman and his big, bad left arm pay the Yankees a visit. Jesus Montero, Colin Curtis and Juan Miranda each had two hits, and one of Miranda's left the yard.
Double-A: New Hampshire 4, Trenton 3, 10 innings
David Phelps labored for five innings, but still held the Fisher Cats to just one run. The bullpen, however, did not do its job. Wilkins Arias, Eric Wordekemper and Grant Duff couldn't hold the opposition down, and the Thunder lost. Austin Romine was 2-for-3 with two doubles and two RBIs in the loss.
High-A: Dunedin 7, Tampa 5
Fresh off winning Florida State League Player of the Week honors, Corban Joseph went 2-for-5 with four RBIs in a T-Yanks loss. Jack Rye went 4-for-4 with a triple and three runs scored. Walter Ibarra had a pair of singles. Jairo Heredia took the loss, allowing two earned runs over four innings.
Low-A: Charleston 5, Rome 0
Here's a stat for you: RiverDogs pitchers have put up zeroes in 37 out of their last 39 innings, including the last 19 in a row. Kelvin Perez threw six of those bagels on the board yesterday, allowing just four hits (but also three walks) during that span. Zoilo Almonte had two doubles, and Luke Murton, Francisco Arcia, Rob Lyerly and Taylor Grote each added a two-bagger. Jimmy Paredes went 3-for-4 with a run scored and three stolen bases.
