Wang, Bruney pitch in Scranton

Chien-Ming Wang and Brian Bruney each pitched for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this afternoon.  Wang started Game 1 of the doubleheader, while Bruney started Game 2.

Wang pitched a seven-inning complete game shutout, throwing 75 pitches, striking out one and walking none.  He allowed four hits and 12 of the 21 outs he recorded were on the ground.  He hasn’t allowed a run in 13 innings for the Triple-A club.

Bruney pitched the first inning in Game 2, allowing a run on two hits (one of which was an infield hit).  Chad Jennings said Bruney reached 94 mph three times.  Yesterday, we learned Bruney could return as early as Tuesday if all went well during this outing.

With Phil Hughes not exactly pitching well, I wouldn’t be at all shocked if Wang gets the ball in his place.

how did they do. I sure hope that Wang went strong and his location was good. Same with Hughes and Bruney. The Yanks will need these guys to come down the stretch.
