Believe it or not, while rain battered the east coast, some of the Yankees’ minor league affiliates managed to play some baseball today. Scranton and Staten Island were rained out, while Trenton only managed to play one game of their doubleheader.
Trenton lost 7-4 to New Britain:
The Rock Cats scored two in the third and doubled their score in the fourth. Trenton turned it around in the bottom of the inning, however. Corban Joseph led off with a double to center and Austin Romine homered. Melky Mesa singled and scored on a triple by Damon Sublett, who crossed the play on a sac fly from Jose Pirela to tie the game. The game stayed knotted until the top of the seventh, when New Britain scored three runs to take a 7-4 win. Romine went 1-3 with a run and two RBIs. Nobody had more than one hit in the game. Jeff Marquez threw six innings and gave up four runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk.
