Two of his starts were at DH and two as catcher. The 24-year-old was 1-for-13 at the plate with four walks and one RBI. He scored a pair of runs as Somerset split the six-game set. For the season, the Yankees’ 2018 first round selection is 23-for-133 (.173) with one home run and 16 RBIs. The Patriots (42-26) lead the Eastern League’s Northeast Division by 2-½ games over the Portland Sea Dogs. They have a six-game series starting Wednesday through Monday July 3 at the Bowie BaySox.
