Yankees top pitching prospect Luis Severino allowed three hits, four walks and one run in five innings, striking out six, as Double-A Trenton beat Portland, 5-1, on Sunday.

Despite the four free passes, Severino threw 50 of his 80 pitches for strikes. The righthander earned his first win and has a 0.90 ERA and 0.80 WHIP. Severino has struck out 14 hitters in 10 innings this season.

Third baseman Eric Jagielo was 2-for-4 with a triple and three RBIs, and centerfielder Mason Williams was 2-for-3 with a walk and two stolen bases.

Bryan Mitchell allowed three hits, three walks and one run in seven innings, striking out four as the RailRiders beat Syracuse, 4-1. Centerfielder Ben Gamel was 2-for-5.

Second baseman Rob Refsnyder was 1-for-3 with a walk, but his 2015 woes continued. Refsnyder was caught stealing second base after he broke on a pickoff attempt with one out in the seventh inning and made his fifth error of the season in the eighth.


Catcher Isaias Tejeda went 2-for-3 with a walk, leftfielder Danny Oh was 2-for-4 with a walk and rightfielder Mark Payton went 2-for-5, but the Yankees fell to Daytona, 7-2.


The game was suspended with two outs in the top of the sixth because of rain with Charleston leading Savannah, 8-3. It will be resumed on April 23.
