Pinstriped Performances: A No-Hitter!

Luis Gil, Reggie McClain, and Stephen Ridings combined for a historic pitching performance on Wednesday as the RailRiders blanked Rochester and didn’t allow a single hit. Hudson Valley and the FCL Yanks romped for a second straight night, while Tampa walked off against the Threshers.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (43-21): The Yanks’ Triple-A outfit supplied the no-question highlight of the night, recording a no-no while beating up on the punching bag Red Wings 8-0.

  • Star of the Game: Luis Gil – 6 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 9 K, 84 pitches (55 strikes). He didn’t do it along, but Gil was the linchpin in the Scranton staff’s big night. This was by far his best night as a RailRider, and the first start during which he pitched into the sixth inning
  • Andrew Velazquez: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored
  • Sócrates Brito: 1-for-1, 1 home run (7), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 walks. Brito’s solo home run was the first run of the game
  • Donny Sands: 1-for-3, 2 RBI. Sands has an eye-popping slash line of .462/.429/1.000 with three extra base hits and 7 RBI through three games in Triple-A
  • Frederick Cuevas: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored
  • Cristian Perez: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored
  • Reggie McClain: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 27 pitches (18 strikes)
  • Stephen Ridings: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 9 pitches (6 strikes). McClain and Ridings easily finished off what Gil started without allowing a baserunner

  • Star of the Game: Isiah Gilliam – 3-for-3, 1 home run (5), 1 double, 1 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 walk. Gilliam’s torrid July continues. This is the second time this month he’s homered in back-to-back games

Hudson Valley Renegades (45-23): After opening the series with an enormous win, the ‘Gades didn’t let up on the gas pedal in game 2, smashing the IronBirds again 8-0.

  • Star of the Game: Anthony Volpe – 2-for-4, 1 home run (1), 1 double, 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Volpe hit his first home run in High-A and boosted his OPS to an even 1.000. It’s been a terrific start in Dutchess County for the 20-year-old
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Jhony Brito – 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 10 K, 90 pitches (57 strikes). Brito has been brilliant in July, allowing no more than two earned runs in any of his four starts this month
  • Jake Sanford: 1-for-4, 1 home run (4), 2 RBI, 1 run scored. Sanford went yard for the second consecutive night
  • James Nelson: 3-for-4, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout

Tampa Tarpons (46-21): It wasn’t their easiest win of the year, but the Tarpons rallied in the 10th inning to steal a 6-5 walk-off win over Clearwater.

  • Star of the Game: Everson Pereira – 1-for-6, 2 RBI, 4 strikeouts. It was a very quiet day for Pereira until he came through in the bottom of the 10th with a first pitch single that brought home Eduardo Torrealba to tie the game and Luis Santos to win it
  • Jasson Dominguez: 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 3 walks, 2 strikeouts
  • Ryder Green: 2-for-5, 1 RBI, 3 strikeouts

  • Tyrone Yulie: 2.1 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, 63 pitches (29 strikes). Yulie was making his full-season debut at just 19 years of age
  • Edgar Barclay: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 48 pitches (33 strikes). The Swiss Army Knife strikes again, this time in long relief for a crucial three innings as Tampa rallied
  • Nelvin Correa: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 2 K, 42 pitches (25 strikes)
  • Jarod Lessar: 2 IP, 0 H, 1 R (0 ER), 6 BB, 1 K, 42 pitches (15 strikes). Lessar, previously the FCL’s elder statesman, made his Low-A debut and could not find the zone

FCL Yankees (12-4): The Yanks are putting up runs in bunches these days, as they easily dispatched Tigers East on Wednesday by a 19-9 score.

  • Star of the Game: Raimfer Salinas – 3-for-4, 2 home runs (2), 6 RBI, 3 runs scored, 2 walks. Salinas is off to a rather slow start, but he came alive in a big way with a grand slam in the fourth and a two-run shot as gravy in the ninth
  • Alex Vargas: 3-for-6, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout, 2 stolen bases
  • Madison Santos: 2-for-4, 1 RBI, 3 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout, 2 stolen bases. Santos is stuffing the stat sheet every night and has reached base in every game he’s played in 2021
  • Nelson Gomez: 2-for-3, 2 doubles, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored
  • Marcos Cabrera: 2-for-5, 1 home run (3), 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 strikeouts, 1 stolen base. Cabrera hit a three-run blast in the second to get the Yanks off and running
