Scranton lost to Buffalo 8-5:
The Yankees took an early lead on RBI singles by Mike Lamb and Brandon Laird in the first inning. Jesus Montero led off the third with a single to right and Jorge Vazquez drove out a homer, giving Scranton a 4-0 lead. Unfortunately, Andrew Brackman got wild in the fourth. With one out he issued back-to-back walks to Ruben Tejada and Dusty Ryan. A wild pitch allowed them to move over, but Brackman walked the bases loaded, leading to him getting pulled for Eric Wordekemper. Luis Figueroa singled to left, plating Buffalo’s first run. A couple more singles and a bases loaded walk put the Bison out in front 5-4. Buffalo kept it up in the fifth, plating three more runs, while the Yankees only managed one more run for the rest of the evening.
Jorge Vazquez went 2-4 with a run scored and two RBIs. Brandon Laird went 2-3 with a double, a run scored and a RBI. Andrew Brackman’s struggles continued as he managed just 3.1 innings in his start. He did not give up a single hit, but allowed three runs on nine walks.
