Thunder drop Game 4, lose Championship Series


OF Tyler Austin was not going to play any more this season due to ankle discomfort. He had an MRI yesterday and doctor’s cleared him to play, but they weren’t going to bother risking anything at this point.

Double-A Trenton (6-1 loss to Akron) Akron wins the best-of-five Championship series three games to one, so congrats to them
CF Adonis Garcia: 1-3, 1 3B, 1 BB, 1 K
LF Ramon Flores, 3B David Adams & RF Zoilo Almonte: all 0-4 — Almonte whiffed once, the other two twice each … Flores also committed a fielding error … that’s why they lost right there, tough to score when the 2-3-4 hitters do that
SS Addison Maruszak: 2-4
C J.R. Murphy: 1-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
1B Kevin Mahoney: 0-2, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 HBP
DH Rob Segedin: 0-4, 2 K
2B Walt Ibarra: 0-3
LHP Nik Turley: 6 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 8 K, 1 HB, 5/2 GB/FB — 66 of 101 pitches were strikes, plus he picked a runner off first … solid finish to the year
RHP David Aardsma: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 0/2 GB/FB — had a bit more on him earlier
RHP Ryan Pope: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 0 K, 1/0 GB/FB — 11 of 21 pitches were strikes
LHP Lee Hyde: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 WP, 1/0 GB/FB — only nine of 20 pitches were strikes, but one of the walks was intentional

The seasons for Triple-A Empire State, High-A Tampa, Low-A Charleston, Short Season Staten Island, and the Rookie GCL Yanks ended a few weeks ago. The next DotF post won’t come for another few weeks, not until the Arizona Fall League season begins on October 9th. The Yankees are sending seven players to the desert (as usual), including OF Slade Heathcott and RHP Dellin Betances. Thanks for another fun season, we’ll pick it back up in four weeks or so.

    Thanks for all your work this season.

  2. Robert says:

    Nick Turley is a 6’6″ lefty nice year I am starting the Hype for next year.

  3. RetroRob says:

    DOTF sunsets. Soon the leaves will be changing, and the long dark, baseball winter will begin. Yuck. That said, September and October are my two favorite months.

  4. Naved says:

    The reason why I first came to RAB was because of DotF. Great job with everything for this.

    That said. Mark Montgomery’s statline for the playoffs

    0.00 ERA 0.83 WHIP 6 IP 11 K’s .111 BAA

    I think he needs to get a taste of the majors this season.

    • Ted Nelson says:

      Who are you willing to lose this offseason so he gets the necessary 40 man spot? What benefit do you expect for him and the team?

  5. Preston says:

    Thanks for all the work on DOTF Mike. This is my favorite part of the site. I know that our farm was a little disappointing this year but I’m excited for next season. We’ll actually have some talent at AAA, with Mesa, Adams, CoJo and Romine. The Trenton OF should be exciting with Flores, Heathcott and hopefully Austin. Sanchez and Mason Williams are budding stars at High A and hopefully some of the younger guys like DBJr, Gumbs will start producing in line with their talent.
