The Trenton Thunder, Double-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, announced that outfielder Shane Brown was added to the team from the Staten Island roster before Sunday’s game at Portland. He took the spot of infielder Kevin Mahoney, who was placed on the Temporarily Inactive List after leaving to be with his wife during the birth of their first child.
Brown played in 30 games with Trenton last season and batted .136 with seven RBI. He had a memorable night on June 2nd, 2012, when in game two of a doubleheader he pitched a scoreless top of the 15th inning against New Hampshire. Brown then hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the 15th to win his own game.
