The Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders captured the Governors’ Cup and its first ever Triple-A national title in convincing fashion last month.

The RailRiders, behind strong performances by four pitchers and a three-run first inning homer by veteran first baseman Chris Parmelee, beat the El Paso Chihuahuas, the Pacific Coast League Triple-A farm club of the San Diego Padres, 3-1, Tuesday, September 20, at AutoZone Park in Memphis, Tennessee to earn the Gilden Triple-A National Title. 792 more words

Red Sox haven’t swept the Yankees in a 4+ game series since June 1990. Until tonight, that is. And the AL East and Wild Card race isĀ glaring at the Yankees in a rather unfriendly manner, and it’s not so pleasant. 836 more words

Game 133: NYY vs. BAL -- Not so charming shutout

So, tonight was not pretty to watch at all. The Yankees traveled to BaltimoreĀ on their travel day yesterday for the weekend series there.
