Double-A Trenton (3-2 win over Akron, walk-off style)
Reegie Corona: 1 for 4, 1 BB
Austin Jackson: 1 BB, 2 K
Colin Curtis: 1 for 2, 2 R, 3 BB – 9 for his last 20 with a double, 2 homers, 4 RBI, 3 walks & zero K’s
Noah Hall: 3 for 5, 1 RBI – walk-off single to drive in Curtis…I guess sitting Juan Miranda with the lefty on the mound was the right move
Matt Carson & Cody Ehlers: both 0 for 3, 1 BB – Carson K’ed
PJ Pilittere: 1 for 4, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 PB
Marcos Vechionacci & Gabe Lopez: both 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 E (throwing, yes both guys) – Vech K’ed & stole a base…Lopez drove in a run
Chase Wright: 7 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 1 PO (at first) – great job outpitching a much more heralded lefty
Mike Gardner: 1 IP, zeroes, 1 K
Scott Patterson: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K – back to help out on the title run, and this is where he should be after being a workhorse for the team all year

Trenton leads the best-of-five series 2 games to none. Primo pitching matchup set for Game 3 on Friday, as Alan Horne takes on Jeremy Sowers in a battle of former Cleveland first round picks (Horne in 2001, Sowers in ’04). If Game 4 is needed, Danny McCutchen (drafted 4 times, twice by the Yanks) will face off against Bobby Brownlie (Cubs first round pick in ’02). Great stuff, should be fun.

    horne was drafted by cleveland? how did we get him ?

  • Andrew

    Horne was drafted in the first round out of high school by Cleveland (something like 14th overall), but he didn’t sign. Unfortunately for him, he then had elbow troubles and Tommy John surgery, and when he graduated in 2005 the Yankees grabbed him, and now look like geniuses.
