Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (13-5): Scranton out-hit Rochester 7-6, but couldn’t get the big hit as they went 0-10 with runners in scoring position in a 3-1 loss.

  • Star of the Game: Sócrates Brito – 1-for-4, 1 home run (2), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Brito’s solo home run in the second inning accounted for Scranton’s only run of the day
  • Thomas Milone: 1-for-4, 1 strikeout. Milone extended his hitting streak to seven games dating back to his last game at Double-A
  • Hoy Jun Park: 2-for-4
  • Armando Alvarez: 2-for-4, 1 double
  • Brody Koerner: 4 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 5 BB, 1 K, 78 pitches (43 strikes)
  • Brooks Kriske: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 13 pitches (10 strikes)
  • Addison Russ: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 12 pitches (5 strikes)
  • Sal Romano: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 9 pitches (6 strikes)
  • Kyle Barraclough: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 12 pitches (7 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (13-5): This one was over in a hurry, as the Patriots scored all of their runs in the first four innings of play. Altogether, they picked up 12 hits, eight of them for extra bases, and crushed four home runs in a 10-3 dismantling of Hartford for the six-game sweep.

  • Star of the Game: Michael Beltre – 3-for-5, 1 home run (1), 1 triple, 2 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 strikeout. Beltre came a double shy of the cycle and extended his hitting streak to six games. Three of those games have been multi-hit efforts
  • Oswaldo Cabrera: 2-for-5, 1 home run (2), 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Cabrera has reached base safely in every game he’s played this year except for one, on May 19
  • Isiah Gilliam: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout
  • Max Burt: 2-for-5, 1 home run (2), 4 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Burt’s homer was his second in as many days
  • Evan Alexander: 2-for-5, 1 home run (1), 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Alexander has played in three games with the Patriots and hit safely in each
  • Matt Krook: 4 IP, 1 H, 2 R (0 ER), 2 BB, 6 K, 67 pitches (40 strikes). Another solid outing for Krook, his third in a row
  • Carlos Espinal: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 44 pitches (29 strikes). Espinal earned the win
  • Kevin Gadea: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 36 pitches (23 strikes)
  • Stephen Ridings: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 14 pitches (9 strikes). Ridings kept his season scoreless streak alive

Hayden Wesneski (Brian Blalock/Sam Houston State)

Hudson Valley Renegades (9-9): The Renegades came oh-so close to ending the week on a high note, entering the bottom of the 12th with a 5-3 lead. But Zach Greene could not hold the advantage, surrendering a game-winning three run home run as HV suffered a 6-5 loss.

  • Star of the Game: Hayden Wesneski – 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K, 57 pitches (42 strikes). The triple-headed beast of Luis Medina, Ken Waldichuk and Wesneski is as good as it gets right now. After four starts, Wesneski’s ERA stands at 0.93
  • Oswald Peraza: 0-for-6, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Ezequiel Duran: 1-for-5, 1 triple, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Duran entered the game in relief of Pablo Olivares in the third inning
  • Josh Breaux: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Isaiah Pasteur: 3-for-4, 1 triple, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Eduardo Torrealba: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI. A second consecutive multi-hit game for Torrealba
  • Nick Ernst: 3 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 39 pitches (28 strikes)
  • Zach Greene: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 4 R (2 ER), 2 BB, 2 K, 51 pitches (33 strikes). Bad luck for Greene, who held the unenviable duty of handling all the extra innings with the runner starting on second base

Tampa Tarpons (13-5): The four wins in the middle were nice, but Tampa opened and closed week three of the season with tough losses. They fell to Fort Myers 9-3 on Sunday.

  • Star of the Game: Anthony Volpe – 2-for-5, 1 home run (1), 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. This was Volpe’s best offensive outing of the season and his first with more than one extra-base hit since Opening Day. He did, however, have a very tough day in the field, making two errors including one in the second inning that helped prolong a six-run frame for the Mussels
  • Austin Wells: 0-for-3, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts
  • Trevor Hauver: 0-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Jake Sanford: 1-for-5, 1 double, 2 strikeouts
  • Andres Chaparro: 1-for-2, 1 RBI, 2 walks
  • Jhonatan Munoz: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 6 R (0 ER), 4 BB, 2 K, 47 pitches (21 strikes). His defense didn’t help him out, but Munoz had trouble finding the plate himself
  • Michael Giacone: 1.2 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 45 pitches (30 strikes)
  • Randy Vasquez: 3.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R (0 ER), 2 BB, 2 K, 51 pitches (31 strikes)
  • Zach Kohn: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 25 pitches (16 strikes)
