The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees are 13-1. They outlasted Rochester 17-14 as Shelley Duncan drove in six runs.

Talked to Dave Robertson on Saturday, who said the SWB Yankees are having a great time.

“There’s no pressure,” he said. “It’s like everybody knows we’ll win. We were mad we lost that one game. The chemistry is great.”

Minor-leagues teams can be hard to gauge because the focus is usually on development, not winning. The idea is to push players to the next level, not necessarily win. You have to give great credit to Dave Miley and his coaches for the work they’re doing.
