SWB  AAA  Yankees  Game  4-18-12

The SWB Yanks shutout the Rochester Red Wings (Twins) 2-0 in a pitchers duel behind the great pitching of DJ Mitchell.  It was Mitchell's 2nd really good game of the year in his 3 starts. The win moves the SWB record to 5-8 on the year.

Pitching:   DJ Mitchell made his 3rd start of the year and it was a gem.   He went 8 shutout innings allowing only 2 hits and 1 walk.  He had 7 strikeouts.  He faced only 1 man over the limit.   After getting the side in order in the 1st inning, he gave up a leadoff double in the 2nd, but got out of the jam  with a line-out doubleplay.  Mitchell had another perfect inning in the 3rd.  A one-out single in the 4th was Rochester's 2nd and last hit, and Mitchell picked the runner off 1st base.  He allowed his only walk of the game in the 5th then retired the last 11 men he faced thru the 8th inning.  Mitchell picked up the win (2-0).

Mitchell's line:  8.0 IP,  0 runs,  2 hits,  7 K's--1 walk   ERA  2.12
86 pitches--60 strikes,   6 GO-5 FO.  

Keven Whelan came on to throw a scoreless 9th and pick up the save, his 2nd on the year.

Offense:  Cole DeVries started for the Twins and he shut the Yankees out for his first 5 innings.  The Yanks mounted a threat in the 4th when DeWayne Wise and Steve Pearce singled, but Jack Cust hit into a DP to end the threat.  The Yankees scored both their runs in the 6th off DeVries when Ramiro Pena singled, DeWayne Wise had a rbi double, and Steve Pearce drove the 2nd run in with a rbi single.  That was all SWB needed to pick up the 2-0 win.


Notes:  Francisco Cervelli had the night off after having his best game of the year Tuesday going 3-5. Go figure.  Adam Warren (1-1)  makes his 3rd start Thursday night in the series finale with Rochester.

Thanks for the report BG...  Sounds like a great night for Mitchell.  He could be next in NY.  In fact, I actually thought the Yankees would take him over Phelps out of ST.  Phelps has obviously worked out nicely, but I think Mitchell is right there too.

Was craner at the game?  I know he has tickets for some of those games up there in Canada or something.  ;)

You're welcome.   I wasn't going to do a report tonight, but this kid pitched such a great game I thought people should know about it.

I thought Mitchell had the edge over Phelps at ST too.  I really never thought Warren was in the picture even though he pitched that great game against Boston.  I think they want to keep him as a starter.  2 of DJ's starts have been outstanding so far.  


I don't think Craner was going to this game.  This game was a home game for them, but it was at Rochester.  He'd never spring for the gas money. I think his tickets are for some of the games when they play up in Batavia, wherever the hell that is. lol

I think Batavia is in Switzerland.  I can only assume that straw hats are still in style there.

Mitchell nearly goes the distance in AAA win


By

Triple-A Empire State (2-0 win over Rochester)

Double-A Trenton (7-1 win over Erie)

Low-A Charleston‘s game was cancelled due to rain and will not be made up because they don’t play Augusta again in the first half. High-A Tampa had a scheduled off day.

Lots of beer drinking over there. Craner will fit right in with those outfits.

Mesa. Dingers.


(PR) (Erie, PA) – Melky Mesa clobbered a three-run home run in the first inning and Trenton never looked back as the Thunder defeated the Erie SeaWovles, 7-1, Wednesday afternoon at Jerry Uht Park to finish a sweep of the three-game series. Trenton, which out-scored the SeaWolves 19-6 in the series, moves above the .500 mark for the first time this season at 7-6 after winning the final four of the seven-game road trip.
Mesa’s blast off of Erie starter Zack Segovia (0-2) came with two outs in the top of the first scoring Ronnier Mustelier and Cody Johnson in front of him. It was his team-high-tying fourth long ball of the season (third in the last five games) and the Thunder’s Eastern-League best 18th home run.


Trenton starter Cory Arbiso kept the 3-0 lead until he allowed an RBI groundout by Niuman Romero in the bottom of the fifth and was pulled in favor of Ryan Pope. Pope (1-2) then struck out Tony Plagman to end the inning with a runner on second base.


The Thunder batted around and scored four times against Segovia and reliever Jared Gayhart in the sixth. Jose Gil’s RBI single made it a 4-1 game and chased Segovia, who was charged with five runs and eight hits in five plus innings.


Gayhart then walked Abraham Almonte with the bases loaded and threw a wild pitch with Mustelier batting to make the score 6-1 Trenton. Zoilo Almonte completed the scoring one batter later by driving in a run on a fielder’s choice ground out.


Pope threw 2.1 scoreless innings to earn his first victory of the season, while Kelvin Perez finished the victory with two scoreless frames. Abraham Almonte and Mustelier each had a pair of knocks for the Thunder to pace the nine-hit attack.

Kuroda=Terrible on Weds.


April, 18, 2012



Hiroki Kuroda looked terrible from his first pitch to his last on Wednesday night. The Twins smacked Kuroda around for six runs and Kuroda didn't even last through the fifth.

In the first, the Twins scored four runs on five hits. They added a run in the third. And in the fifth, they chased Kuroda when Justin Morneau hit his second homer of the night off Kuroda.

Morneau hit a two-run homer in the first and a solo shot in the fifth. Morneau was the final batter Kuroda faced.

His final line was 4 1/3 innings, six runs (all earned) on 10 hits. He struck out four and walked none.

Kuroda has now had two bad starts and one good one in his first three as a Yankee. Last time out, he threw eight scoreless against the Los Angels in the home opener. In Tampa, in the second game of the season, Kuroda gave up six runs (four earned) on 5 2/3 innings. He left Wednesday's game down 6-4 to Minnesota.

By the way, Morneau loves Yankee Stadium. He has seven homers in 12 games at the new stadium. He has five in 80 games at Target Field.
