Back Home in Rochester, Garner returns

Cole Garner makes his return to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankee lineup after nearly a month on the disabled list with a wrist injury. Garner hasn’t played since May 29th, going 2-4 with two strikeouts against the Toledo Mud Hens. He is hitting .225 (23-102) with three homers and 10 RBI through 29 games. Garner will play left field and bat seventh tonight against the Braves.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre returns “home” to Frontier Field in Rochester, New York to begin a four game series against the Gwinnett Braves. Over their last 10 games, the Braves and the Yankees have a combined record of 3-17, with the Yankees going 3-7 over their last 10, while Gwinnett has lost ten straight. Following the four home games against the Braves, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre will play a quick two game series with the Rochester Red Wings at Frontier Field as the visiting team.
