Yankees look to bounce back after last night’s tough loss

SWB Yankees Game Notes for August 3rd vs. Indianapolis Indians

8-3 Notes

With both the Yankees and Pawtucket Red Sox losing on Thursday, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre remains in a tie for first and a tie for the IL Wild Card lead but the gap is tight. Lehigh Valley beat Pawtucket picking up a come from behind 2-1 win moving to within one half game of the lead in both races. The Iron Pigs and Paw Sox open a four game series at McCoy Stadium on Friday, so even with wins over Indy in the remaining three games of the current series and Monday’s opening game of a four game series at the visitors in Frontier Field against Rochester, the Yankees can only gain ground in the standing against one of their two competitors in the North.

The 21 hits by Indianapolis on Thursday night set a season high for the most allowed by Yankees pitching in a single game. The previous high mark was 18 by the Charlotte Knights on July 18th in a game at Frontier Field. The seven hits by the Indians in the ninth tied the season high for most hits in an inning first set on June 21st at Louisville. The six runs (all earned) scored off SWB reliever Juan Cedeno also set a season highs besting the five total runs allowed (several SWB relievers) and five earned runs, set by Mike O’Connor at Norfolk in the second game of a double header on June 2nd.
