Double-A Trenton lost to Bowie, 6-4
Damon Sublett was 3-for-4 with a double, Rob Lyerly homered, and Ray Kruml doubled. Dellin Betances had a rough start: 3.2 IP, 4 H, 4 R/ER, 3 BB, 2 K, and two homers allowed. He also left the game in the fourth with the trainer after covering home plate, though it was extremely hot in Trenton and it may have been heat-related. Chase Whitley walked two, struck out three, and gave up two hits and a run in two innings, and Ryan Flannery walked four and struck out two while giving up a hit and a run in 1.1 innings.

High-A Tampa beat Bradenton, 6-5.
Eric Chavez, still doing a rehab stint, homered and walked, and Cody Johnson doubled twice. Kelvin Castro had the deciding triple. Sean Black gave up three hits, four walks, and five runs in 3.1 innings and the relief pitchers likely walked too many guys, but kept Bradenton off the board to allow for the late win.

Low-A Charleston beat West Virginia 3-1
Anderson Feliz was 2-for-3 with a double and a triple, and Jeffrey Farnham doubled as well. Scottie Allen threw six innings of five-hit, one-run ball, with four strikeouts and two walks.

the Rookie GCL Yankees beat the Rookie GCL Pirates 14-5
2011 first round pick Dante Bichette Jr. had himself a day, going 4-for-4 with two doubles and two walks, and obviously many others contributed to the blowout win. Daniel Lopez was 3-for-6 and doubled twice as well. Isaias Tejeda homered. Gabriel Encinas walked four and struck out four in five innings, but gave up only two hits and no runs.
