Auburn Doubledays

Monday's scheduled game between the Auburn Doubledays and Jamestown Jammers at Falcon Park has been postponed due to rain.
Washington Nationals fourth-round pick Robbie Dickey tossed four near-flawless innings, and the Doubledays won their fourth in six tries, solidly defeating the Jamestown Jammers 3-1 on Sunday at Falcon Park.
The Doubledays scored seven runs without hitting a ball out of the infield on any run-scoring play, and Auburn routed State College 7-1 to close within 1.5 games of the New York-Penn League Wild Card.
Every Spike scored a run in a marathon third inning, State College set a new single-game scoring record, and the Doubledays fell 17-4 at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.
The Doubledays out-hit the Spikes eight to three, but two errors in the fifth and two key strikeouts from Raudy Read and new addition Brandon Miller led to a heartbreaking 5-3 loss at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park on Thursday night.
Travis Ott (1-1) picked up his first New York-Penn League win, Chase McDowell nailed down his first professional save, and the Auburn Doubledays swept the Jamestown Jammers with an easy 6-2 win at Russell E. Diethrick Park.
Reynaldo Lopez was spectacular once again, firing six shutout innings and boosting Auburn to a huge 5-3 win over the Jamestown Jammers.
Three Doubledays pitchers gave up three runs apiece, and Auburn dropped its fourth out of five, 10-2 at home to Lowell on Monday night.
The Doubledays scored three times over the final three innings, but left the tying run on base and dropped the second of a three-game set with Lowell, 6-5 on Sunday night at Falcon Park.
Diomedes Eusebio launched a three-run bomb in the bottom of the 8th, and the Doubledays stole a dramatic victory, 5-4 over the Lowell Spinners on Saturday night at Falcon Park.

NY Yankees

Derek Jeter collected his 3,420th career hit on Monday night at Globe Life Park, passing Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski to move into seventh place on baseball's all-time list.
Joe Girardi has more of an inside track to the Yankees' trade-rumor scene than the average observer, but the manager said that he prefers to give general manager Brian Cashman his space to work, rather than get excited about moves that might not happen.
Mark Teixeira took on-field batting practice Monday for the first time since he sustained what the Yankees called a lower lat strain, and the first baseman hopes to return to the lineup on Tuesday against the Rangers at Globe Life Park.
The Yankees recalled outfielder Zoilo Almonte from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday, immediately inserting the 25-year-old to play left field and bat ninth against the Rangers.
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter knows, with no hesitation, what he's going to miss the most after he retires from baseball at the conclusion of the season.
Brandon McCarthy will be asked to help draw the Yankees even in their three-game set in Texas on Tuesday, and he'll be helped by the full-time return of slugging first baseman Mark Teixeira. Nick Martinez gets the start for the Rangers.
Brett Gardner continued to show off his head-scratching dominance of Yu Darvish, but the Rangers batted around against David Phelps in a four-run fifth inning and defeated the Yankees, 4-2, on Monday night at Globe Life Park.
With the passing of the Draft signing deadline, teams have had a recent influx of talent into their farm systems, and with that, MLBPipeline.com has updated the Top 20 Prospects lists of all 30 teams.
A ticket into postseason play remains up for grabs, which fits perfectly into the Yankees' business model of never giving up on a season. That has kept general manager Brian Cashman busy attempting to patch the ship, simultaneously chasing incremental upgrades and bigger fish to rebuild the roster for October.
Joe Torre batted sixth on Sunday, delivering his Hall of Fame speech eloquently, if not briefly, to end this year's induction of the grand Class of 2014. Torre spoke about his family and his love of the game, and he detailed each of the six times the Yankees went to the World Series during his 12-year tenure as manager, winning four of them.
Shane Greene went 5 1/3 solid innings, but the Yankees couldn't keep the Blue Jays off the board late in a 5-4 loss on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.
Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira took swings in an indoor batting cage and fielded ground balls at first base on Sunday, both for the first time since an MRI revealed a mild strain in his lower left lat.
Joe Torre said on Saturday that his relationship with the Yankees right now is right where it's supposed to be.
With the bases loaded in the seventh inning, Yankees second baseman Brian Roberts could not handle a shallow popup by Blue Jays designated hitter Dan Johnson. As it fell to the ground for a hit, the Blue Jays scored the deciding run in Saturday afternoon's 6-4 victory over the Yankees at Yankee Stadium.
As former managers Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox prepare to be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday, Yankees manager Joe Girardi took some time to reflect on the well-respected trio before Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.
Chris Capuano, the Yankees' newly acquired left-hander, will be inserted into the rotation and make his first start for his new team on Saturday against the Blue Jays.
First baseman Mark Teixeira was not in the Yankees' starting lineup again on Friday, but he is optimistic that his return is coming soon.
The Yankees chased veteran Mark Buehrle after three innings and uncharacteristically slugged their way to a 6-4 victory over the Blue Jays on Friday night at Yankee Stadium. Ichiro Suzuki's first homer of the season led the way for New York.
On Friday afternoon, Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner sat at a table during a news conference and looked out toward 206 enthused Yankees summer campers. With eyes glued to one of their favorite players, nearly everyone eagerly raised their hands hoping to ask him a question. Over the past week, they had learned and practiced baseball skills and drills, but now it was finally their turn to speak to a Major Leaguer who started out just like they have.
The Yankees continued to stay busy on the transaction front Thursday, acquiring left-hander Chris Capuano from the Rockies in exchange for cash considerations. Capuano, 35, was signed as a free agent by the Rockies on July 4 and made four starts between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Colorado Springs, posting a 1-0 record with a 2.79 ERA.
After a tarp malfunction at Yankee Stadium contributed to the calling of Wednesday night's game, leaving the Yankees with a 2-1 victory over the Rangers after 4 1/2 innings, Major League Baseball released an official statement in response on Thursday.
Brandon McCarthy is making the most of that second season, fitting nicely into pinstripes and providing the Yankees with another solid outing on Thursday. He permitted just one run over six innings as New York defeated the Rangers, 4-2, at Yankee Stadium.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi unsuccessfully challenged a ruling at first base in the bottom of the fifth inning of Thursday's series finale against the Rangers.
The reformulated Yankees rotation has performed better than Brian Cashman would have anticipated, and the general manager said that he'd prefer to focus his attention on acquiring a big bat as the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline approaches.
Masahiro Tanaka is still reporting discomfort in his right elbow, 10 days after receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection, but the Yankees are still hopeful to have the right-hander return to the big league mound this season.
It's not a huge surprise to see Mark Teixeira leading the Yankees with 17 home runs this season, or to find power hitters Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran following him with 10 apiece. But it might be surprising to see Brett Gardner's name right there with them.
Manager Joe Girardi said that the Yankees will likely make a roster decision regarding injured first baseman Mark Teixeira by Friday. Thursday's series finale against the Rangers was the fourth consecutive game out of the starting lineup for Teixeira, who has a mild strain of his lower left lat.
Hired to be fired. That's what we say about managers, and we say it because it's true, even for those who one day wind up in the Hall of Fame.
While Tom Seaver's Hall of Fame standing has brought him unique acclaim and been so fulfilling, he is quite willing to be displaced as the highest percentile vote-getter -- so long as his replacement is the right player. Derek Jeter is the right player. Seaver says so. Moreover, he thinks the Yankees' captain ought to be the first unanimously elected Hall of Famer.
When the rain started pouring with one out in the bottom of the fifth inning at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night, it came down much more abruptly and faster than anyone anticipated.

NY Mets

Mets starter Dillon Gee has struggled to find his early-season form since being activated from the 15-day disabled list on July 9. Gee will head back to the mound on Tuesday against the Phillies, who counter with left-hander Cole Hamels.
These days, each win carries with it implications. The Mets are relevant again, or at least relatively relevant, sitting four games under .500 after Monday's 7-1 dismantling of the Phillies at Citi Field. They are demonstrating obvious growth on a daily basis. They are -- dare it be said -- thriving.
Another day, another Mets challenge. New York manager Terry Collins asked umpires to review a call for the fifth game in a row on Monday, this time on a ruling that Philadelphia's Marlon Byrd was safe at second on Carlos Ruiz's infield single in the sixth inning. After a review of one minute and 51 seconds, the call on the field stood.
Those dreaming of a blockbuster trade bringing superstar Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to Flushing can keep dreaming for now. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson on Monday called it "unlikely" that the club will complete any deal before Thursday's non-waiver Trade Deadline -- Tulowitzki or otherwise.
Daisuke Matsuzaka seems to have avoided the worst. Matsuzaka's inflamed right elbow improved markedly from Sunday to Monday, generating hope that he can begin a throwing program by the end of this week. Though Matsuzaka will not return from the disabled list when eligible on Aug. 10, initial fears of a much longer DL stay appear unfounded.
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson did not recall a claim that former A's manager Tony La Russa approached him about steroid use in the Oakland clubhouse in the 1980s and '90s.
The 2014 Breakthrough Series, a regional showcase co-hosted by Major League Baseball and USA Baseball in four locations around the country, including MCU Park -- home of the Brooklyn Cyclones, a Mets affiliate -- took place on Sunday and Monday. About 30 high school-aged athletes from the area, including many from the five boroughs, and Puerto Rico participated in the two-day slate of workouts and scrimmages in front of college recruiters and professional scouts.
A pair of young hurlers -- Marlins closer Steve Cishek and Mets rookie Jacob deGrom -- were named the co-National League Players of the Week on Monday after outstanding performances from the mound last week.
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson has a lengthy resume filled with experiences that have helped shape his career as a baseball executive. Among them is his time spent in the military.
The Mets' No. 4 prospect Michael Conforto settled in at his position as an outfielder after experiments at several spots while playing at Oregon State.
