Triple-A Scranton manager Al Pedrique was named the Triple-A International League Manager of the Year for the second straight season, so that’s cool. Also, SS Tyler Wade named to the IL end-of-season All-Star Team. Congrats to both.

Triple-A Scranton (8-4 win over Rochester)

  • SS Tyler Wade: 1-3, 1 2B — got picked off second … left the game in the sixth inning for an unknown reason … Conor Foley says Wade remained in the dugout after coming out of the game, so I doubt he’s hurt
  • DH Matt Holliday: 1-3, 1 R, 2 BB
  • 3B Miguel Andujar: 2-3, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 BB — he’s hitting .335/.381/.531 with a 13.4% strikeout rate in 53 Triple-A games

  • CF Mason Williams: 1-2, 1 BB — got picked off first and was ejected for arguing the call
