Pinstriped Performances: At The Buzzer

Somerset prevailed on a walk-off, and the Renegades got a timely hit in a gigantic spot. Meanwhile, Tampa’s struggles with the weather, and Scranton’s with its opponents, continued.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (9-13): The RailRiders’ bats were held silent, wasting a good outing from Matt Krook in a 2-0 defeat against Lehigh Valley.

  • Star of the Game: Matt Krook – 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 7 K, 89 pitches (49 strikes). Krook carries a sparkling 1.96 ERA, but a relatively underwhelming 33:14 strikeout-to-walk ratio, through five starts
  • Greg Bird: 1-for-4, 1 triple, 2 strikeouts
  • Armando Alvarez: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 strikeout
  • Carlos Espinal: 2.2 IP, 0 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 0 K, 50 pitches (23 strikes). Espinal suffered the loss to fall to 0-1
  • Trevor Lane: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 1 K, 27 pitches (18 strikes)
  • Michael Gomez: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 4 pitches (4 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (13-7): A ninth-inning rally ended with a walk-off hit-by-pitch – the second occurrence of this in the Yankees’ system this week – and after the 3-2 win over Portland, Somerset will look to take five of six from the Sea Dogs tomorrow.

  • Star of the Game: Andres Chaparro – 2-for-4, 1 home run (4), 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Chaparro hit a two-run home run in the third inning and has posted a .785 OPS this year
  • Anthony Volpe: 0-for-4, 2 strikeouts
  • Jeisson Rosario: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored. Rosario’s double kickstarted the game-winning rally in the ninth
  • Saul Torres: 0-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Torres was the victim of the bases-loaded HBP that won the Patriots the ballgame, and was therefore credited with a huge RBI
  • Ken Waldichuk: 4.1 IP, 1 H, 1 R (0 ER), 2 BB, 6 K, 75 pitches (53 strikes). Waldichuk allowed no earned runs for the third time in his four starts on the season
  • Steven Jennings: 3.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 3 K, 42 pitches (29 strikes)
  • Matt Minnick: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 14 pitches (8 strikes). Minnick’s clean top of the ninth earned him the win, his second of the season

Hudson Valley Renegades (12-8): After blowing a 5-1 lead, the Renegades rode an eighth-inning rally capped by a huge two-out base hit off the bat of Eduardo Torrealba to a 7-6 win over Wilmington. The ‘Gades hope to close out a 5-1 week tomorrow.

  • Star of the Game: Eduardo Torrealba – 2-for-4, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base. With runners on second and third, two outs, and a 1-2 count in the eighth, Torrealba poked a line drive to right field to turn a 6-5 deficit into a 7-6 lead
  • Austin Wells: 1-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Wells has hit safely in nine out of his last ten games
  • James Nelson: 2-for-4, 1 double, 2 RBI, 3 runs scored, 3 stolen bases. Nelson had not stolen three bags in a single game since August 28, 2019, when he was with the Jupiter Hammerheads
  • Aldenis Sanchez: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, 2 stolen bases
  • Blas Castaño: 5 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 76 pitches (52 strikes)
  • Alex Mauricio: 1 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 32 pitches (17 strikes)
  • Rodney Hutchison: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 31 pitches (17 strikes)
  • Welington Diaz: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K, 26 pitches (13 strikes). Diaz earned his second win and has not allowed an earned run since giving up three on April 13

Tampa Tarpons (8-10): Both ends of the doubleheader with Lakeland were banged. Another twin bill should take place tomorrow, while today’s regularly scheduled game will theoretically be made up at a later date.
