Around the System - June 18

Triple-A: Scranton 4, Lehigh Valley 1
Jesus Montero was 3-for-4 and a longball away from the cycle, and the Yankees were able to get past the IronPigs. With yesterday's effort -- which included no RBIs -- Montero now has triples in back-to-back games and a batting average of .248. Colin Curtis and Eduardo Nunez each had two hits in the win, and Nunez drove home a pair. Dustin Moseley struck out 10 over seven innings of three-hit, one-run ball.
Box score

Double-A: Binghamton 1, Trenton 0
The B-Mets and Chris Schwinden got their revenge on the Thunder and Hector Noesi last night, outdueling 1-0 on the strength of a Brahiam Maldonado longball in the sixth. Otherwise, Noesi was nails once again, scattering six hits over seven innings of walk-free ball. He also mixed in six strikeouts. Dan Brewer and Luis Nunez had doubles.
Box score

High-A: Clearwater 9, Tampa 4
George Kontos made his season debut yesterday, and it went as well as can be expected for someone coming off of major arm surgery. The right-hander lasted just 2 2/3 and allowed four hits and three earned runs. He also fanned four and walked one. Don't be surprised if he's in Trenton in short order. Mitch Abeita was 2-for-3 with two doubles, and Neil Medchill and Jack Rye also had two hits apiece. Medchill also drove in three runs and scored once.
Box score

Low-A: Rome 4, Charleston 1
Josh Romanski was reached for 11 hits and four runs over 5 2/3 innings, and the RiverDogs couldn't touch the Braves' pitching. Zoilo Almonte collected a double, the team's lone extra-base hit, and worked one of its five walks. J.R. Murphy was 1-for-4.
Box score

Short Season: Brooklyn 5, Staten Island 3
Kyle Roller with a two-run double and a walk, but the Yankees couldn't generate any offense after a three-run first on Opening Night at Richmond County Bank Ballpark. Casey Stevenson, Jose Mojica and Garrison Lassiter also doubled. Eduardo Sosa was 2-for-3, and Kelvin De Leon reached on a walk and catcher's interference in his non-Florida or Dominican debut.
Box score

Dominican Summer League 1: Yankees 2, Giants 1
Yeicok Calderon was 2-for-4 with a triple, a home run and a run scored as the Yankees topped San Fran's Dominican Leaguers. Jorge Alcantara and Jamiel Orozco also had two hits; Alcantara is now batting .451. Yankees hurlers combined to strike out eight, and Melvin Croussett picked up his third save.
Box score

Dominican Summer League 2: Royals 6, Yankees 3
Rafael Polo was 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs, but the Yankees couldn't surpass the Royals DSLers. Gian Arias also collected two hits and scored a run in the loss. Ravel Santana swiped a bag. Yankees pitching allowed nine (!) stolen bases.
