Auburn Doubledays Doubledays Can't Hold Off Spikes in 9-7 Loss Auburn went up 4-0 in the first inning, but the State College offense didn't waste time coming back and ultimately taking the lead in a 9-7 win at Falcon Park. Auburn Drops Game Two of Series 7-1 The Doubledays' offense was silenced by Landon Beck as State College defeated Auburn 7-1 in game two of the three game series. Auburn Celebrates July 4th with a 4-2 Victory Over State College The Doubledays ended a three-game skid with a 4-2 victory against\ the Spikes on July 4th in front of the largest crowd of the season at Falcon Park! Auburn Falls to Williamsport 6-1 for Second Straight Night The Doubledays dropped the series finale against the Crosscutters 6-1 and were swept. Doubledays Offense is Silenced in 6-1 Loss to Crosscutters Auburn managed a season-low three hits in a 6-1 loss to Williamsport on July 2nd. Military to be Admitted Free to Saturday's Auburn Doubledays Game The Doubledays are excited to announce that all current and retired military personnel will be admitted free of charge to the team's 7:05 pm game against the State College Spikes this Saturday, July 4. Auburn Falls 5-4 in 11 Innings to Williamsport The Doubledays led most of the game, but after a rally by the Crosscutters in the eighth and a walk off home run in the 11th, Auburn fell 5-4. Doubledays Snap Skid and Win First Home Game 3-2 Auburn defeated Brooklyn 3-2 to win its first home game of the 2015 season and end a four-game losing streak. Brooklyn's Offense too Much to Handle as Auburn Falls 11-4 The Doubledays dropped their fourth game in a row, this time an 11-4 defeat at the hands of the Cyclones. Rain Cuts Shorts Doubledays Comeback Auburn fell to Brooklyn 6-5 in five innings as the rain came and cut short the Doubledays' attempt at a comeback. NY Yankees Gardner an All-Star Final Vote candidate Brett Gardner has been among the American League's top offensive performers for the last month-plus, and the Yankees' outfielder is hoping to ride that hot streak into his first career All-Star appearance. Teixeira, Betances named to AL All-Star team The Yankees will not have a starting player in the All-Star Game for the first time since 1999, but right-hander Dellin Betances and first baseman Mark Teixeira have been selected to represent the club at the July 14 Midsummer Classic, to be played at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. Ellsbury on track to be activated Wednesday The Yankees are on the verge of getting center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury back in their lineup. Ellsbury, on the disabled list since May 20 with a right knee sprain, is scheduled to be activated from the disabled list for Wednesday's game against Oakland at Yankee Stadium. Errors prove costly as Yanks fall to Rays James Loney, Logan Forsythe and Curt Casali drove in two runs each as the Rays found an offensive spark and capitalized on some Yankees errors in an 8-1 win on Sunday at Yankee Stadium to snap a seven-game losing skid. Eovaldi faces A's, looking for fourth straight win When the Yankees traveled to Oakland in late May, the A's took three of four games and outscored New York 17-11. The Yankees will be out for redemption in a three-game set at Yankee Stadium, starting with a 7:05 p.m. EST start Tuesday. Miller to pitch in rehab game, be re-evaluated Yankees manager Joe Girardi announced Sunday that lefty Andrew Miller, who made franchise history when he became the first Yankee to convert his first 17 save opportunities with the team, is headed to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday for a rehab outing. Everything working for Pineda in 10-K start Yankees manager Joe Girardi and catcher John Ryan Murphy were asked about what had worked for starting pitcher Michael Pineda on Saturday in the Yankees' 3-2 walk-off victory over the Rays. Error hands Yankees 2nd straight walk-off win The Yankees and Rays were tied in the ninth when Ramon Flores laid down a sacrifice bunt to advance pinch-runner Jose Pirela to third and Chris Young to second. But reliever Brad Boxberger's errant throw to first base allowed Pirela to come sliding into home as the Yanks topped the Rays, 3-2, on Saturday at Yankee Stadium with their second straight walk-off victory. McCann seals Yanks' 1st walk-off of 2015 The walk-off hit was the Yankees' first of the season, Brian McCann's seventh of his career and it was his second walk-off home run as a Yankee. Tanaka takes step forward in latest start It was a step in the right direction for Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka after back-to-back troublesome outings. Yanks rally on McCann's walk-off HR in 12th Brian McCann sent a walk-off three-run homer over the right-field fence in the 12th inning to push the Yankees past the Rays, 7-5, on Friday night at Yankee Stadium. It was the Yankees' first walk-off win of the year. Fan presents 3,000th hit ball to A-Rod Two weeks ago, when he grabbed Alex Rodriguez's 3,000th hit -- a home run to right field -- there was nothing anyone could say or do to convince Zack Hample to return the ball to Rodriguez and the Yankees. Sabathia pushed back, to start Wednesday The Yankees decided to give veteran lefty CC Sabathia a few more days off before he makes his next start. Sabathia is now scheduled to pitch next week against the A's, instead of this weekend against the Rays. Left oblique strain lands Beltran on DL The Yankees placed outfielder Carlos Beltran on the 15-day disabled list on Friday with a left oblique strain. The move is retroactive to Wednesday. Yanks, A-Rod resolve statistical bonus matter The Yankees and Alex Rodriguez have resolved the issue regarding bonuses under the provision of his contract related to historic statistical accomplishments. Eovaldi's 'split' decision is paying dividends Nathan Eovaldi credited his splitter, which complements his fastball, curveball and slider mix, as helping him log his career-high eighth victory in the Yankees' 3-1 win over the Angels in Anaheim on Wednesday. Tex's pick helps Yanks head home on high note On a seven-game road trip, the difference between finishing with three victories or five losses is substantial, and first baseman Mark Teixeira's deft glovework might have helped save the Yankees from a long, quiet flight back to New York on Wednesday. Eovaldi quiets Angels as Yankees snap skid Nathan Eovaldi tossed 5 1/3 scoreless innings, and Garrett Jones smacked a long solo home run off Matt Shoemaker, helping the Yankees avoid a sweep by the Angels with a 3-1 win Wednesday at Angel Stadium. Miller might rejoin Yankees before break Yankees left-hander Andrew Miller threw 20 pitches off a bullpen mound on Wednesday at Angel Stadium, and there is a chance that he could be activated from the disabled list before the All-Star break. Nova, Warren have A-Rod feeling optimistic Ivan Nova pitched scoreless ball into the sixth inning Tuesday and, after running into trouble, was able to hand the ball off and allow Adam Warren to squelch the Angels' rallies. It still resulted in a 2-1 Yankees loss, but Alex Rodriguez said that he loved what he saw. Tex's homer isn't enough to back Nova Albert Pujols and Erick Aybar hit back-to-back home runs in the sixth inning Tuesday night to lead the Angels to a 2-1 win over the Yankees at Angel Stadium, clinching a series victory over New York prior to Wednesday's finale. Judge records first career four-hit game As Yankees No. 2 prospect Aaron Judge winds down his Minor League career, there are few things he still has yet to accomplish before hitting the big leagues. But he managed to do something he had never done before Tuesday night. Warren disappointed but ready to help bullpen The numbers never seemed to add up in Adam Warren's favor for a season-long stint in the rotation, and though the Yankees' right-hander was displeased by the decision to move him back to the bullpen, he was not surprised when manager Joe Girardi sat him down for the explanation. Homers continue to be CC's downfall CC Sabathia has allowed at least one home run in each of his last five starts, and with Mike Trout and C.J. Cron joining his hit list on Monday, it's official: No Major League pitcher has surrendered more round-trippers (19) than the big Yankees' left-hander has this season. Warren headed to Yankees' bullpen After weeks of speculation about how the Yankees would fit six starters into five slots, it appears that they have reached a decision, with right-hander Adam Warren identified as the odd man out. Yankees turned away by Trout, Angels Mike Trout did it all on Monday night, turning in a couple of run-saving, highlight-reel catches and clubbing another home run while leading the Angels to a 4-1 win over the Yankees in Southern California. Gardner earns AL Player of the Week honors Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner is enjoying one of the best stretches of his career, relishing his standing as a consistent annoyance for opposing pitchers. It is a hot streak that has now been recognized with an American League Player of the Week award. New soccer rivalry electrifies Yankee Stadium Soccer took over Yankee Stadium on Sunday, when the city's newest rivalry, the expansion New York City Football Club vs. the Red Bulls, took place. The veteran squad showed who's boss, at least for one day, with a 3-1 victory. Communication breakdown costly for Yanks The general rule is that the center fielder should catch anything that he can get to, but in the final milliseconds as Brett Gardner camped under Carlos Correa's fourth-inning fly ball, he flinched at the sight of another glove unexpectedly approaching. Gritty Pineda effort not enough vs. Astros Captivating the Minute Maid Park crowd for a second game in a row, Carlos Correa hit two doubles and scored two runs while Collin McHugh was stellar in eight innings of two-hit ball, propelling the Astros to a 3-1 win in the series finale on Sunday against the Yankees. NY Mets Mejia returns to Mets as Colon opposes Cain In the time that Jenrry Mejia has been away from the Mets, Jeurys Familia has established himself as the team's unquestioned closer, so successful in that role that he is a Final Vote candidate for the National League All-Star team. But Mejia's return still looms significant in Tuesday's game against the Giants at AT&T Park, which pits veteran right-handers Bartolo Colon and Matt Cain against one another. Monell delivers after Niese's stellar start Johnny Monell hit a two-run double in the ninth inning and Jon Niese outdueled Chris Heston as the New York Mets beat the San Francisco Giants, 3-0, Monday night at AT&T Park. Familia up for NL All-Star spot in Final Vote Jeurys Familia and his 1.13 ERA may not be an All-Star, but he still has a chance. Familia has been named to the National League's Final Vote ballot, along with Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers, Johnny Cueto of the Reds, Troy Tulowitzki of the Rockies and Carlos Martinez of the Cardinals. deGrom selected for first All-Star Game Pitching has defined the Mets throughout the first half of this season. So it is only natural that pitching is what will represent them at the 2015 All-Star Game in Cincinnati. Starting pitcher Jacob deGrom was named to his first National League All-Star team Monday, while closer Jeurys Familia was named to the Final Vote ballot. Mets summon Nieuwenhuis to bolster bench Seeking to improve their bench, the Mets on Monday selected the contract of outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis from Triple-A Las Vegas, and optioned Darrell Ceciliani there. Flores enjoys breakout series in LA Whether Wilmer Flores' recent move to second base had anything to do with his sudden turnaround is nothing more than conjecture. But he has broken out since shifting defensive positions, rapping out four hits in the Mets' 8-0 win over the Dodgers on Sunday. He finished 10-for-13 in the three-game series with two doubles and five RBIs. Future is bright for Mets with Matz on mound Steven Matz, a 24-year-old left-hander, made his second career Major League start at Dodger Stadium and led the Mets to an 8-0 victory over the Dodgers. He's now 2-0 with a 1.32 ERA. Harvey not a fan of six-man rotation Unprompted, when asked about his struggles after Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Dodgers, Matt Harvey at least partially blamed his discomfort in the Mets' six-man rotation. A day later, manager Terry Collins recommended that Harvey and his other starting pitchers "get over it." Mets seek revenge vs. no-hitter foe Heston If the Mets can trace their current offensive funk back to any one day in particular, it may as well be June 9 -- the day that Giants rookie Chris Heston no-hit them at Citi Field. Now comes the rematch, a chance for revenge. Heston will face Jon Niese and the Mets in Monday's series opener at AT&T Park. Matz blanks Dodgers for six as Mets roll For once, the Mets had little trouble scoring Sunday at Dodger Stadium. And they didn't even need Steven Matz to contribute that much with the bat. Matz did drive home his fifth run in two games in the Mets' 8-0 win over the Dodgers, also delivering six shutout innings in his second career start.
