And lost the rain shortened second game 5-2:

Manny Delcarmen pitched the Yankees into a 5-0 hole after a three run homer by Andy LaRoche broke things open in the third inning, and the Yankees were only able to claw two of those runs back before the weather forced the game to end early. Both of the Yankees’ runs came on outs, as Mustelier hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning and Kosuke Fukodome scored when Darnell McDonald grounded into a double play in the fifth. Delcarmen only pitched 2.2 innings in the game, but allowed five runs on five hits and two walks with three strikeouts and a first inning throwing error that allowed Pawtucket’s first run to score. Juan Cedeno finished the game for the Yankees and recorded four outs without allowing a baserunner.

Trenton held on to beat Reading 6-5:

This one got a little hairy, as Reading made a spirited comeback attempt in the middle innings, but the Thunder were able to stave it off and shut them down at the end of the game to hold on for the win.…

Trenton lost to Reading 7-2:

David Adams hits a two run home run in the very first inning, and that would be all the runs Trenton could muster in the game. Adams would do his best, however, adding two more doubles to finish the night 3-4 with eight total bases and two runs driven in, for a pretty good day at the office. The Thunder didn’t get the job done on the mound, however, giving up the early lead by allowing two runs in the first inning, the go-ahead run in the third, and two runs in each of the sixth and seventh innings. Starter Mikey O’Brien was charged with five of the runs, four of which were earned, while allowing nine hits and a walk with five strikeouts in six innings. Mark Montgomery worked a perfect eighth inning, striking out two.

Tampa was shutout by Clearwater, 4-0:

The Yankees got seven hits, two walks, and benefited from an error by Clearwater tonight, but couldn’t bring a single runner home and found themselves on the wrong end of a goose egg.…
