Move over Edwar, here comes Steven Artz

Six strong from Hughes…2 perfect from Joba…Mo for the 9th…could you script it any better?

Scranton bullpen: 9 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 K

Update on Miranda: Miranda rolled his ankle running after a foul pop-up the other day. Nothing major, but the Yanks are being overly cautious as always. That’s from our good pal Mike A., who should be out enjoying the sun.
