Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees Game Notes 7/18

7-18 Notes

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre missed out on an opportunity to move into a first place tie in the IL North with Tuesday’s loss to Charlotte. SWB’s last day in first place in the IL North was May 16, 2011. The Yankees, who held a 4-2 lead heading to the eighth inning would have pulled even with Lehigh Valley, who lost to Durham 8-6 on Tuesday night. With the SWB loss, coupled with a Pawtucket win over Syracuse, the Yankees dropped from second to third in the North and remain one game out of first place.

Charlotte came back on the Yankees Tuesday night with two in the eighth inning to tie the game and one in the ninth to secure a come from behind 5-4 win over Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. It was just the third time in 44 games that the Yankees failed to close out a game when leading after seven innings.
