Keep this thread here. It involves the Yankees, so I can't see why it can't stay here and be pinned so it's always at the top of the board for all to see. I definitely enjoy following the progress of the young kids of the Yankees. 

I believe a minor leagur thread here will ultimately increase interest. It also makes us better informed fans.

If YES televised the minor league games they may increase ratings. Oh wait. What do they care about ratings?

I agree, at the very least show minor league games when the Yanks have a day off. Get the fans excited about the future with their own eyes, I know I would watch the minor league games. I know the YesNetwork has become more of a business corporation station and less about what the fans want to see but it'd be nice to see more minor league games. I know they'd have to pay for that but it would bring in more ratings.

Thunder Settle for DH Split with Game 2 Loss, 3-2

- Adam Giardino

ERIE, PA -- The Trenton Thunder mounted a valiant comeback in Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Erie SeaWolves, but the effort fell just short, resulting in a split.

The Thunder bats provided enough offense in the first game for a 5-3 victory, but timely hitting was hard to come by in the second game at Jerry Uht Park which finished in a 3-2 loss. Sunday's results moved the Thunder to 3-1 on the season after they had taken Friday and Saturday's games by a total of 24-5.

In both games, the Thunder fell behind 1-0 in the early stages before drawing even. In the first game, Trenton used a pair of runs in the top of the 4th inning to take the lead before Erie tied it in the bottom half of the inning. The Thunder then used a go-ahead single by Mason Williams in the 5th to take the lead back, and an insurance RBI double by Williams and an eventual run from him to pull away for a 5-3 victory.

Even in the Game 2 loss, Williams and Jake Cave both hit safely and are the two Thunder batters to have recorded a hit in all four games. Cave continued his torrid start to the season in Sunday's doubleheader by going 3-for-6 with a pair of walks which remarkably lowered his batting average to .533 (8-for-15) and raised his on-base percentage to .650 (13-for-20).

The Thunder next play Monday night at Canal Park against the Akron Rubberducks. No. 1 prospect in the Yankees organization, RHP Luis Severino, is expected to start for the Thunder in his 2015 season debut. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m. with the Trenton Thunder Pre-Game Show beginning at 6:20. Coverage can be heard on 91.3 FM WTSR or on www.trentonthunder.com.

RiverDogs Sprint to a 4-2 Victory Over the Legends

Eight stolen bases help Charleston win second-straight and split the series with Lexington

CHARLESTON, SC - Jorge Mateo and Abiatal Avelino led an aggressive Charleston RiverDogs base-running attack Sunday evening, stealing a combined total of seven bases to lead the 'Dogs to a 4-2 victory over the Lexington Legends at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park.

Starting pitcher Jordan Montgomery was dominant in his RiverDogs debut. The Sumter, S.C. native held the Legends scoreless in 5 2/3 innings of work and fanned nine Lexington hitters to pick up his first win of the 2015 season in front of 3,503 fans at The Joe.

Both teams got off to a slow start offensively, and the game remained scoreless until the bottom of the fifth inning. With an aggressive baserunning attack, the RiverDogs tallied a total of four stolen bases in the inning (two by Mateo, one by Avelino, and one by Brandon Thomas).

The Legends got on the board with a run of their own in the top of the sixth. Shortstop Humberto Arteaga crossed home on a groundout by left fielder Samir Duenez to make the score 3-1.

In the bottom of the seventh, the speedy 'Dogs stole four more bases (two by Avelino and two by Mateo). Avelino scored his second run of the game on a wild pitch and increased Charleston's lead to 4-1.

One defensive play highlighted the evening for Charleston. Thomas made a leaping catch up against the wall in left-center field to retire the side in the top of the eight. He received a standing ovation from the crowd as he ran back into the first base dugout with his RiverDogs teammates.

The RiverDogs bullpen had not allowed an earned run in the 2015 season, but the streak finally came to an end with two outs in the ninth inning. Second baseman Corey Toups hit an RBI single, scoring Carlos Garcia from first base. Charleston relief pitcher Joe Harvey got Arteaga to fly out to right field for the final out of the ballgame, earning himself a two-inning save in the 4-2 victory.

The eight stolen bases are three shy of the league record of 11, which was set on July 10, 1991 by the Macon Braves. With the victory, Charleston splits the opening series with Lexington and improves to 2-2 on the season. The Augusta GreenJackets come to the Lowcountry for a three-game series beginning Monday at 7:05 p.m.

BALLPARK FUN: Kids had the opportunity to play catch on the field before the game. Kids also took over the game-day duties of many ballpark staff members, such as calling out the starting lineups in place of the PA announcer. Many of the kids filled "Shoeless Joe's Hill" down the line in right and earned souvenirs from the RiverDogs' bullpen throughout the game. After the tilt, the RiverDogs stayed on the field late to sign autographs for a large crowd of fans, and that one pesky fox, who remained in the ballpark until the end of the night.

COMING UP: The RiverDogs move on to a three-game home series with the Augusta GreenJackets starting Monday at 7:05 p.m. Charleston will throw RHP David Palladino (0-0, -.--) in his '15 debut against the 'Jackets LHP Nick Gonzalez (0-0, -.--) The Joe will be spoofing Monday Night Football during every Monday home game this year. Coors Monday Night Baseball, presented by Kickin' 92.5 features $1 hot dogs and draft beers in the Ashley View Pub thanks to our friends at Coors, Mix 96, Kickin' 92.5, and 101.7 chuck fm. In addition to the Monday Night Baseball festivities, Monday is also Youth Baseball Night presented by McDonald's. Join us for a parade around the warning track before the game to celebrate youth sports teams in the Lowcountry.

The Farm Report: Opening Week!

For the 2015 season, I will be doing the Farm Report as a weekly post reviewing how the Yankees’ affiliates fared in the previous week. It may take some time to get a good feel for the best way to do this, so please bear with me. Feel free to let me know what is working and what isn’t and I’ll try to adjust it as best I can.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders:
The RailRiders are off to a 2-2 start to 2015, however, their opening day game gave them a lot to live up to this year. Scranton beat Syracuse 8-3, but the story was Ramon Flores. The young outfielder started the day’s scoring with a homer in the first inning, and finished the day as the third Scranton player to ever hit for the cycle. He ended up going 4-4 with three runs scored, two RBIs and a walk. As a team, Scranton had 16 hits, assisted by Kyle Roller, who went 3-5, and Robert Refsnyder, who went 2-4 with a RBI, a walk and a run scored.

Scranton dropped the next two games, but came back to split the four-game series with a win on Sunday. The RailRiders had a chance to see a little more history, as Tyler Austin fell just a triple shy of the cycle. Chase Whitley took the mound and threw a very strong five innings, spreading out four hits and walking two. He struck out five and got the win. Austin went 3-4 with a run scored, a double, a homer and two RBIs.

With some interesting prospects and a lot of questions about the big league club, it is going to be a very interesting year for the RailRiders. Roller, Austin and Flores are all off to a strong start, but Slade Heathcott, who had an exciting spring, has been slow to heat up now that the games count. He is 3-14 with one RBI and four Ks. Nick Rumbelow is doing well in relief, allowing just one hit, one run and one walk over three innings. He has struck out four.

Trenton Thunder:
The Thunder had their Opening Day game postponed due to weather, but that didn’t slow down what is probably the most exciting lineup in the Yankees’ system right now. They beat the Erie SeaWolves 15-2 on Friday, thanks to fifteen hits and four errors on Erie. Everyone in the lineup got at least one hit and Jake Cave went 4-6 with two runs scored, a stolen base, a homer and two RBIs. Aaron Judge went 2-6 with three RBIs and a homer, while Dante Bichette and Cito Culver went 2-5, with Bichette going deep once.

Trenton showed that the offensive outburst wasn’t a fluke, when they beat Erie 9-3 on Saturday. Once again, the offense came from the whole lineup, with everyone getting a hit with the exception of Greg Bird. There was a lot of power, some of it from surprising places. Gary Sanchez had his first homer of the year, while Eric Jagielo clubbed two home runs. Cito Culver rounded it out with a three-run bomb of his own. The Thunder took their win streak to three, taking the first game of a doubleheader on Sunday, but Erie managed to pull off a 3-2 win over Trenton to split the day.

Tampa Yankees:
Tampa faced off against Lakeland to start off their 2015 campaign. They drew first blood, with Ericson Leonora scoring on a Danny Oh sac fly in the fifth. Angelo Gumbs singled in Matt Snyder to give the Yankees a 2-0 lead in the top of the sixth. Lakeland put together a bit of a rally in the bottom of the eighth, but the Yankees held them to one run and took the 2-1 win.

After four games, the Yankees are 2-2, having alternated victories. Snyder is off to a strong start, going 5-11 in four games with a homer, three walks, four RBIs and two Ks. Miguel Andujar has gone 6-16 with three doubles and two RBIs. On the mound, Rookie Davis put in a good showing, allowing just one run on three hits over six innings. He did not issue a walk and struck out five. Jonathan Holder picked up a win, throwing six scoreless innings and allowing just three hits and striking out four, while Brady Lail has already notched up nine Ks in just five innings this season. He has scattered four hits.

Charleston RiverDogs:
The RiverDogs got off to a slow start, dropping their first two games of the season, but they rebounded and managed to split the four-game series with Lexington. Justin Kamplain threw six strong innings on Saturday, allowing just two hits and a walk, while striking out six. Joey Maher and Cale Coshow combined to keep the Legends scoreless over the last three innings and Charleston took the 2-0 win. They extended their win streak on Sunday, when they beat the Legends 4-2. Abiatal Avelino went 2-3 with a double, two runs scored, a walk, a RBI and three stolen bases. Jorge Mateo went 2-4 with a RBI and a run scored, picking up four stolen bases.

Chris Breen and Austin Aune have both started the season going 4-13. Breen has a double and two RBIs, while Aune has a triple. They have both struck out seven times. Avelino is 4-15 with three runs scored, three doubles, a RBI and six stolen bases. Jordan Montgomery appears to have the pitching performance of the week, going 5.2 innings and allowing just one unearned run on five hits and a walk. He struck out nine batters in that outing.

Rochester downs SWB 6-4

BigGuy  4-13-15

The Railriders dropped the first game of their series with Rochester (Twins) by a 6-4 score. SWB's record dropped to 2-3. 

Connor Kendrick was called up from A Tampa to make a spot start. He lasted only 3 innings giving up 5 runs. He took the loss. Danny Burawa gave up a run in his 2 innings of relief. Diego Moreno threw 2 scoreless innings picking up 4 strikeouts with no hits, and 1 walk. Brandon Pinder finished up with 2 scoreless innings allowing 1 hit. 

From the offensive side Tyler Austin continued his hot hittting going 3-4 with 2 rbis. He leads the team with 7 rbis. Slade Heathcott had a triple, single, and walk. Austin Romine doubled, and Cole Figueroa added 2 hits.
