Around the System - June 19

Triple-A: Lehigh Valley 5, Scranton 4
Jesus Montero and P.J. Pilittere both went deep, but the Yankees could not overcome the IronPigs. It was the fourth longball of the season for Montero, and it drove home his 24th and 25th RBIs of what has been a massively disappointing season for the 21-year-old. Eduardo Nunez was 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Tim Redding allowed five earned runs in as many innings and earned the loss.
Box score

Double-A: Binghamton 10, Trenton 9
The Thunder staged a big comeback in the ninth, only to lose in the tenth on a close play at the plate following a sacrifice fly to right. Austin Romine, who had been slumping of late, was 3-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI in the loss. Brandon Laird connected on his 15th homer of the season, and Marcos Vechionacci and Jose Gil each went deep as well. Vechionacci was 3-for-4 with two RBIs and a run scored. Luis Nunez and Justin Christian both collected two hits.
Box score

High-A: Clearwater 5, Tampa 1
Andrew Brackman allowed five runs over five innings, suffering his first loss since May 6. He also walked two, which may be the biggest indicator that he just did not have his best stuff, considering he had issued just seven free passes entering the game. Pat Venditte blanked the Threshers over the final three innings, fanning six in the process. Brad Suttle was 3-for-4 with the T-Yanks' lone RBI, and Corban Joseph collected two doubles.
Box score

Low-A: Rome 11, Charleston 6
Sean Black allowed six runs (three earned) on 10 hits over five innings, and the RiverDogs couldn't get past the Braves. Black struck out four and did not walk a batter. Jimmy Paredes went 3-for-6 with a double and an RBI. He did, however, make two errors. Kelvin Castro also went 3-for-4. Slade Heathcott, J.R. Murphy and Rob Lyerly had two hits apiece.
Box score

Short Season: Brooklyn 9, Staten Island 6
Sam Elam allowed five runs (one earned) over 3 2/3 innings, and the Yankees fell to the Cyclones. Shane Brown was 2-for-3 with a run scored and a walk. Kevin Mahoney was 1-for-1, got hit by three pitches, stole a base and collected two RBIs in his season debut. Kelvin DeLeon, Jose Mojica and Carlos Urena each drove in a run.

Dominican Summer League 1: Yankees 10, Nationals 2
The bottom of the lineup ruled in this effort. Jamiel Orozco, Edwin Beard, Jerison Lopez and Ali Castillo combined to go 9-for-13 with three doubles, a triple, six runs scored and seven RBIs. Jorge Alcantara and Yeicok Calderon scored once each, and Isaias Tejeda crossed the plate twice. Kenedy Agramonte and Deivi Mojica scattered three hits over their seven combined innings, striking out six and walking none.
