Around the System - May 22
Not the most memorable day for the Yankees, who got one-hit by Sam LeCure and the Bats. Chad Huffman had the lone knock, a single in the seventh. Dustin Moseley permitted four earned runs on nine hits. Kevin Whelan and Zack Segovia blanked Louisville on one hit the rest of the way.
Double-A: Trenton 8, Portland 6; Trenton 3, Portland 2
Justin Christian had four hits, including two home runs in Game 1, and the Thunder swept a doubleheader from the Sea Dogs. Justin Snyder's longball in Game 2 gave the Thunder three runs and a lead they would never relinquish. Snyder was playing in place of David Adams, who sustained an ankle injury in Game 1.
Hector Noesi made his Double-A debut in the first game, and allowed five earned runs over six innings. He walked the first man he faced, just the seventh walk he's issued all season

High-A: Tampa 3, Palm Beach 1
Andrew Brackman continued turning the corner, tossing six innings of three-hit, one-run baseball with zero walks. Over his last three starts, the Yankees' 2007 first-round pick has permitted five runs on six hits and two walks. He's struck out 12 during that time, a 16 2/3-inning span.
Trent Lockwood was 3-for-4 with an RBI, and Addison Maruszak collected a pair of hits and scored a run. Melky Mesa and Brad Suttle also scored. Neil Medchill stole his second base, and Mesa swiped his 12th.
Low-A: Charleston 7, Savannah 6
Zoilo Almonte was a double shy of the cycle, and clubbed a three-run homer in the ninth inning to help the RiverDogs tie the game in the ninth. Hector Rabago also went yard in the ninth before Charleston won it in the 11th. Starter Jairo Heredia allowed three earned runs over five innings, but did not figure in the decision. Catcher J.R. Murphy had two more hits, making him 7-for-17 over his last four games.
