Around the System - June 20

Triple-A: Lehigh Valley 4, Scranton 1
Reegie Corona went 2-for-4 with his fourth home run of the year, but it wasn't nearly enough to hold off the IronPigs. Jorge Vazquez, playing first base, went 2-for-4 with a double. Jesus Montero took the collar in four trips. Romulo Sanchez was the hard-luck loser, allowing just an earned run over 4 2/3 innings. Eric Wordekemper extended his Triple-A scoreless streak to three innings.

Double-A: Trenton 4, Binghamton 3
This win, coupled with New Hampshire's loss, puts the Thunder back in first place atop the Eastern Division. David Phelps didn't get the win, but he fan a career-high 10 against just one walk over six innings. Tim Norton and Grant Duff shut the door the rest of the way. Austin Krum's two-run bomb in the eighth put Trenton on top for good. Brandon Laird hit his 16th home run, and his second in as many nights.

High-A: OFF

Low-A: Rome 1, Charleston 0
The RiverDogs collected three measly hits -- a DeAngelo Mack triple and singles from J.R. Murphy and Jimmy Paredes -- and couldn't earn a win for spot starter Michael Solbach, who turned in an excellent outing. Solbach allowed one unearned run over five innings before handing the ball to Ryan Flannery, who blanked the Braves for the final three frames.

Short Season: Staten Island 2, Brooklyn 1
Mikey O'Brien dominated for seven innings, scattering two hits, striking out four and walking just one as he led the Yankees to their first victory of 2010. Preston Claiborne and Chase Whitley closed out the final two frames. Isaiah Brown stroked a pair of doubles and drove in a run, and Jose Mojica also collected two hits.
Box score

Dominican Summer League 1: OFF

Dominican Summer League 2: Dodgers 2, Yankees 1
Guillermo Matos collected two hits, including a home run, but the Dodgers still edged the Yankees' Dominican leaguers. Rafael Polo also went 2-for-4. Edwin Rodriguez fanned five in three innings in relief of starter Ramon Rodriguez.
