The Farm Report: 08/27/11 – Lots of rain and a few losses.

Tampa lost 6-5 to Brevard County:
Tampa scored first when Abraham Almonte knocked a leadoff homer in the first.  Brevard County put two on the board in the top of the second to take a lead.  Rob Segedin started the bottom of the second with a ground-rule double, scoring on a sac fly form Kelvin Castro to tie the score.  Brevard County broke the tie in the sixth and took a 6-2 lead as the game headed into the final inning.  Tampa managed a rally, as Kyle Roller started with a walk and Segedin singled to right.  Neil Medchill walked to load the bases and Cody Johnson grounded into a force out at the plate.  Castro singled to center, scoring two runs and Walter Ibarra plated Johnson on a single.  Unfortunately, the Yankees rally ran out, as they took a 6-5 loss. Ibarra was 2-4 with a double and a RBI.  Segedin was 2-4 with two runs scored and a double.  Brett Marshall pitched five innings and gave up two earned runs on six hits and a walk.

Charleston is trailing 12-0 in the bottom of the seventh.
Barring a massive turnaround, I will probably leave it at that for the night.  Follow the link for the box score.

The GCL Yankees lost to the GCL Pirates 14-9:
The Pirates scored two runs in the first, but homers by Isaias Tejeda and Matthew Duran gave the Yankees a 3-2 lead.  The Pirates retook the lead with two runs in the second, but the Yankees battled back again in the bottom of the inning taking a 6-4 edge.  Each team added a run in the fourth, but the Yankees’ offense slowed as the Pirates’ bats picked up, driving them to a 14-9 victory.   Jose Rosario went 3-5 with two runs scored, a double and a RBI.  Duran went 3-4 with two runs scored, a triple, a homer, a RBI and a walk.
