Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: BooSox

The big-league Yanks completed the resurrection of their season against Boston this week, and on Wednesday, Scranton followed suit by blasting their Sox-affiliated opposition. Somerset and Hudson Valley suffered heartbreaker losses, and it was Bombers v. Bombers down in DR.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (53-35): The RailRiders’ fourth, fifth, and sixth hitters went a combined 6-for-13 in a 9-1 drubbing of the WooSox.

  • Star of the Game: Rob Brantly – 2-for-5, 1 home run (7), 4 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Brantly made the trip back to Triple-A with Gary Sánchez’s return from the COVID list but has settled right back in with his old outfit
  • Estevan Florial: 2-for-5, 2 doubles, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Chris Gittens: 2-for-4, 1 home run (10), 1 double, 2 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. Gittens has posted an incredible 1.240 OPS at Triple-A this season
  • Greg Allen: 2-for-4, 2 doubles, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 stolen base
  • Clarke Schmidt: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 62 pitches (41 strikes). Schmidt continues to inch closer to a big-league return, and not a moment too soon as the Yanks could use more fresh arms
  • Brian Keller: 3.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K, 38 pitches (27 strikes). A deserved win in relief for Keller
  • Brooks Kriske: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 12 pitches (10 strikes)
  • Braden Bristo: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 17 pitches (10 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (54-27): The Patriots saw a 5-4 ninth-inning lead turn into a 6-5 walkoff loss to the Curve in Altoona.

  • Star of the Game: Oswaldo Cabrera – 1-for-4, 1 home run (15), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base. Cabrera’s year has been somewhat overlooked thanks to monster campaigns by his teammates, but he now has double-digit home runs and stolen bases, as Wednesday marked his 10th in the latter category
  • Oswald Peraza: 1-for-5, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 strikeouts, 2 stolen bases
  • Michael Beltre: 2-for-4, 1 triple, 1 double, 2 runs scored
  • Ken Waldichuk: 5 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 8 K, 88 pitches (50 strikes). Not Waldichuk’s most efficient outing of the year, but he’s still striking out an absurd nearly 13 hitters per nine innings over his Double-A tenure
  • Kevin Gadea: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 29 pitches (15 strikes)
  • Michael Gomez: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 23 pitches (14 strikes). After inducing a lineout to start the ninth, Gomez surrendered a single and a walk-off home run

Hudson Valley Renegades (57-35): Things went south in a hurry for the ‘Gades, who built a three-run lead and then surrendered a seven-spot in the eighth inning to lose a tough one to Brooklyn, 11-7.

  • Star of the Game: Austin Wells – 1-for-3, 1 home run (2), 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts. Wells has posted an .873 OPS in his tenure at High-A
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Matt Sauer – 5.1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 7 K, 93 pitches (57 strikes). Sauer has three starts under his belt at this level, and has gotten better with each one
  • Anthony Volpe: 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Andres Chaparro: 2-for-3, 1 home run (1), 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout. A consistent power threat with Tampa this year, Chaparro got his first dinger with the ‘Gades
  • Mickey Gasper: 1-for-2, 2 runs scored, 1 walk
  • Roberto Chirinos: 2-for-5, 1 double, 1 RBI, 3 strikeouts. Chirinos came to the plate in the ninth as the potential tying run with the bases loaded and worked the count full before striking out to end the game
  • Freicer Perez: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 0 K, 34 pitches (19 strikes)
  • Nelvin Correa: 0.2 IP, 7 H, 7 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 31 pitches (18 strikes)
  • Derek Craft: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K, 37 pitches (19 strikes)

Tampa Tarpons (61-28): A weather-delayed Tarpons-Mets matchup saw Tampa take the win 3-2.

  • Star of the Game: Carlos Narvaez – 1-for-3, 1 home run (7), 2 RBI, 1 run scored. Narvaez has homered in two straight games
  • Jasson Dominguez: 1-for-3, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Ryder Green: 1-for-3, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Benjamin Cowles: 2-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 walk
  • Beck Way: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K, 11 pitches (5 strikes)
  • Clay Aguilar: 4 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 62 pitches (38 strikes). Aguilar had a 4.50 ERA after his first nine appearances this season. It’s now 2.76
  • Michael Giacone: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 24 pitches (15 strikes). Giacone has seven wins this year without a loss
  • Wellington Diaz: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 38 pitches (25 strikes). Diaz recorded his first save of 2021

FCL Yankees (21-10): The Yanks blanked Tigers West 6-0, with only one of the runs earned, and allowed two hits all afternoon.

  • Star of the Game: Alfred Vega – 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K. Vega has a sparkling 0.86 ERA over eight appearances with the Yanks this season
  • Grant Richardson: 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Antonio Gomez: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI
  • Raimfer Salinas: 1-for-2, 1 RBI, 1 run scored

DSL Yankees: Yanks 1 (11-14) and Yanks 2 (13-12) completed their suspended intra-squad matchup from August 7, with Yanks 1 emerging victorious by a 4-1 score.

  • Star of the Game: Hans Montero – 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout, 2 stolen bases. Montero drove in what would prove to be the winning run with a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning
  • Oscar Silverio: 1-for-1, 1 RBI, 2 walks, 1 stolen base
  • Geralmi Santana: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K
