Pinstriped Performances: Brantly, Florial Key ‘Riders Comeback

2022 is a crucial season for a number of Yankees prospects, but perhaps none more so than Estevan Florial, and the 24-year-old has more than answered the call through the first two games.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (2-0): After coasting on Opening Night, the RailRiders had to battle back from a deficit late as they overtook the Mets for a 5-3 win.

  • Star of the Game: Estevan Florial – 2-for-4, 1 home run (2), 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. Florial’s second long ball of the year brought Scranton within a run in the eighth inning, and he also doubled in the sixth
  • Oswald Peraza: 0-for-4
  • Rob Brantly: 1-for-3, 1 home run (1), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Brantly’s solo homer got the RailRiders on the board in the eighth, and his sacrifice fly in the ninth evened the score at three apiece
  • Ryan LaMarre: 1-for-3, 1 double, 2 RBI, 2 strikeouts. LaMarre notched the go-ahead, two-run double in the ninth inning
  • Hayden Wesneski: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K, 60 pitches (38 strikes). Wesneski impressed in his Triple-A debut, continuing the scoreless streak for RailRiders starters
  • Braden Bristo: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 25 pitches (15 strikes)
  • Zach Greene: 2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 41 pitches (27 strikes). Greene got the win despite surrendering two runs
  • Shelby Miller: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 14 pitches (8 strikes). The former All-Star made his Scranton debut and picked up a save
