Around the System - June 5 and 6

Triple-A: Scranton 2, Gwinnett 1; Scranton 7, Gwinnett 3

Sunday: Jason Hirsh tossed five innings of one-run ball in his return to the rotation, and the Yankees' offense made it stand up. Mark Melancon, Royce Ring and Zack Segovia filled in for the final four innings. Reid Gorecki was 2-for-5 with a two-run homer, and Matt Cusick, Eduardo Nunez and Reegie Corona each doubled. Jesus Montero was 0-for-4.

Saturday: Ivan Nova held the G-Braves to one run over six innings, and the Scranton hitters gave him just enough backing to help him earn the win. Zack Segovia, Boone Logan and Jonathan Albaladejo went the rest of the way. David Winfree's two-run blast accounted for all of the Yankees' offense. Chad Huffman doubled and Reegie Corona stole a base. Jesus Montero was 0-for-3.

Double-A: Trenton 5, Richmond 4; Trenton 10, Richmond 2

Sunday: Hector Noesi was dominant over seven innings, holding the Flying Squirrels to two runs while striking out 10 and walking just one. Wilkins Arias and Kevin Whelan went the rest of the way. Justin Christian, Marcos Vechionacci and Jorge Vazquez each had three hits, and Jose Gil drove home three runs. Vechionacci doubled twice, while Gil and Christian added a two-baggers of their own.

Saturday: The Thunder won in dramatic fashion, using a two-out rally off of Richmond closer Rafael Cova to score a comeback win, capped by Austin Krum's game-winning single to right-center. Jorge Vazquez and Justin Snyder had three hits in the win, and Justin Christian and Krum had two each. D.J. Mitchell threw three innings of four-run ball in the win.

High-A: Tampa 3, Jupiter 0; Tampa 7, Jupiter 4

Sunday: For the second day in a row, a starter who didn't begin the year in Tampa pitched excellently. This time it was Shaeffer Hall's turn, and he tossed 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball, with six strikeout and no walks. Trenton Lare and Phil Bartleski made it interesting, but Jonathan Ortiz saved the win. Corban Joseph and Addison Maruszak had three hits apiece, and Brad Suttle and Jose Pirela each had two. Joseph also drove in three runs.

Saturday: Graham Stoneburner was dominant, holding the Hammerheads scoreless over seven innings of six-strikeout, no-walk baseball. Overall, he's allowed just 15 hits in 29 High-A innings, and has fanned 30 against 10 walks. Trent Lockwood was 4-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI. Addison Maruszak and Jose Pirela had two knocks apiece.

Low-A: Charleston 6, Rome 5; Charleston 4, Rome 2

Sunday: Charleston had just four hits, but that was enough to back Josh Romanski's six-inning, one-hit shutout effort. Ryan Acosta and Ronny Marte held the Braves down over the final three innings. Rob Lyerly had two hits, and Zoilo Almonte collected two RBIs. Jimmy Paredes stole two bases, and DeAngelo Mack added one.

Saturday: Charleston's top two hitters in the lineup, Slade Heathcott and J.R. Murphy, went a combined 5-for-9 with four runs, two doubles and two RBIs as the RiverDogs scored a walkoff win against the Braves. Kyle Higashioka's single in the ninth plated Murphy with the game-winner. Rob Lyerly added two hits, and DeAngelo Mack, Emerson Landoni and Luke Murton each doubled. Kelvin Perez allowed five runs over six innings.

Dominican Summer League 1: Cubs 9, Yankees 7
Damian Taveras, Jorge Alcantera and Claudio Custodio each had two hits, but the eight combined runs allowed by Rony Bautistia (five in 1/3 of an inning) and Isaias Alvarez were too much to overcome. Custodio had a triple, and Edwin Fulgencio connected on a two-run bomb in the loss.

Dominican Summer League 2: Yankees 10, Mets 2; Rays 5, Yankees 1

Sunday: Samuel Garcia took the loss by giving up three runs on three hits and three walks 2 2/3 innings. He struck out four, but allowed a longball to Jiminson Natera. Sandy Brito was 1-for-3 with a triple and scored the lone Yankees run. Jose Javier drove in the run.

Saturday: Ramon Santana had three hits, and Eladio Moronta, Rafael Polo, Fernando Perez, Ronald Morillo, Melvin Aquino and Francisco Duran (phew!) each had two. Morillo and Perez combined for five RBIs. Duran and Morillo each had a double, and Polo and Javier tripled.
