    Estrada, Holder Combine for Three Hits in AFL Game

    Yankees middle-infield prospects Kyle Holder and Thairo Estrada combined for three base hits in Arizona Fall League action on Saturday night.

    Holder batted first in the lineup for the Scottsdale Scorpions and went 1-for-4 while playing second base.  Holder also turned one double-play in the game.

    Estrada was the designated hitter, went 2-for-4 with a double, a RBI and a stolen base.

    Both Holder and Estrada were putouts in their first two at-bats.

    Holder’s hit came in the bottom of the sixth inning when he lined a single into center field.  Estrada’s first hit was in the same inning when he beat out a ground ball to third base for an infield single.

    In the bottom of the eighth inning, Estrada grounded a ball sharply into left field for a double and scoring Steven Duggar, the only Scottsdale run of the game.

    Right-handed pitcher Cody Carroll came into the game in the bottom of the eighth inning.  Carroll pitched a hitless inning, allowing just a walk in his second game of the AFL season.

    A familiar face was in the lineup for Surprise as former Yankees prospect Michael O’Neill, nephew of Paul O’Neill, batted leadoff for the Saguaros.  O’Neill went 3-for-6 with a run scored, a double and a RBI.
