Thunder drop Game 4, lose Championship SeriesBy
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.
