Royals defeat New York: Minor league highlights

Esteban German scored the game winning run on a wild pitch in the 9th inning and the Royals dropped the Yanks 4-3 last night. The boys wasted a 3-1 lead but still won - strange huh?

Ron Mahay wasn't too sharp and The Mexicutioner made things interesting in the ninth by loading the bases with two outs before getting Jason Giambi to fly out to center to end it. The Royals are now 5-3 against the Yankees this season. Not bad.
Omaha's Chad Spann

Burlington's Alex Caldera picked up his 10th win of the season last night as the Burlington Bees dropped Clinton 7-4. In seven innings of work Caldera, a righty, allowed four hits, struck out eight, walked two and gave up two runs.

2008 second round pick Johnny Giavotella (4) and Clint Robinson (12) each went deep for the Bees. Mike Moustakas finished 3-for-5 to raise his season average to .269.

Wilmington split a doubleheader with Salem winning the opener (6-4) while dropping the night cap (8-6). Blue Rock Cody Strait drove in five runs in the win.

Omaha thumped Albuquerque 8-2 thanks to a three run first and four run third. Roman Colon (4-5) picked up the victory while Yasuhiko Yabuta earned his second save of the year.

Former Red Sox fifth-round pick 3B Chad Spann went 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI for the Royals.
