BUFFALO, N.Y. ‚?? A milestone avoided Dave Miley for a while week at the start of Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees‚?? season.


But the SWB manager finally reached the 1,600-win mark on Thursday in a 7-2 victory over Buffalo at Coca Cola Field as the team improved its record early on this season to 2-5.


Miley, who has been the Triple-A manager for the Yankees since 2006 when the team was still in Columbus, has managed 21 seasons in the minor leagues, piling up a record of 1,600-1,219. Being the only skipper in SWB Yankees history, he has a 484-378 mark with the club.


Miley‚??s milestone took the attention off of another shaky outing by the organization‚??s top prospect ‚?? according to MLB.com ‚?? in left-hander Manny Banuelos.


The 21-year-old, making his second start for the Yankees, allowed two first-inning runs and just three hits, but he walked six batters and left after the second inning. He threw 74 pitches, with just 36 of them being for strikes as his ERA remained high at 10.13. In his first outing of the season, he gave up 11 hits and four runs in 3 1/3 innings of a loss to Syracuse on April 7.


But on Thursday, his offense took him off the hook.


The Yankees took a 3-2 lead in the top of the second on three hits, with the big blow being a two-run double by Ray Kruml, scoring Brandon Laird and Colin Curtis.


Steve Pearce‚??s first longball for the Yankees gave the team a 4-2 lead in the top of the fifth.


The Yankees tacked on three more runs in the seventh to put the score out of reach. Jack Cust knocked an RBI-single in the frame and Laird plated two with a double as Scranton/Wilkes-Barre extended its lead to 7-2.


Manny Delcarmen (1-1) picked up the win in relief going three innings with two strikeouts. The Yankees bullpen, which allowed three runs in 4 2/3 innings during Wednesday‚??s loss, tossed seven scoreless frames on Thursday and have now allowed just seven earned runs in 33 1/3 innings for a 1.89 ERA so far this season. Prior to Wednesday‚??s performance, the ‚??pen hadn‚??t allowed a run in 14 2/3 innings.


Kevin Russo and Cust each had two hits for the Yankees, while Dewayne Wise went 1-for-4 with two runs scored. Wise is now batting .417 this season in his three games.
