Pinstriped Performances: Breaux-Ahead Blast

On the verge of losing their fourth straight, Somerset turned the tables thanks to their slugging catcher. Unfortunately, none of their sibling franchises could follow suit – with two of them losing in heartbreaking fashion.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (17-28): A top prospect is showing some signs of stirring from an early-season slumber, but the RailRiders’ pitching staff couldn’t hold the line as they lost 7-3 to Jacksonville.

  • Star of the Game: Oswald Peraza – 1-for-3, 1 home run (5), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk. Peraza has a three-game hitting streak, and he is 4 for 12 over that span
  • Estevan Florial: 1-for-5, 1 RBI, 3 strikeouts
  • Ender Inciarte: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored
  • Josh Maciejewski: 2.2 IP, 2 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 58 pitches (36 strikes). Maciejewski has been excellent for Somerset this season, but couldn’t carry that success up a level
  • Vinny Nittoli: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 16 pitches (11 strikes)
  • Braden Bristo: 2 IP, 2 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 43 pitches (28 strikes)
  • Zach Greene: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K, 31 pitches (18 strikes)
  • Trevor Lane: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 18 pitches (10 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (27-15): With his team at real risk of falling into a true slide, Josh Breaux’s clutch two-run home run in the eighth lifted the Patriots to a 3-2 win in Portland to snap a three-game losing skid.

  • Star of the Game: Josh Breaux – 1-for-4, 1 home run (8), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Breaux swung away on a 3-1 count with one out in the eighth to reverse a 2-1 deficit
  • Anthony Volpe: 1-for-4
  • Brandon Lockridge: 2-for-4, 1 run scored
  • Luis Medina: 5 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 7 K, 83 pitches (52 strikes). Medina’s finest outing since a five-inning, six-strikeout affair back on April 29
  • Emmanuel Ramirez: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 30 pitches (16 strikes). Ramirez earned the win to move to 3-0
  • Carson Coleman: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 34 pitches (25 strikes). Coleman recorded a six-out save, his first at Double-A. He hasn’t allowed a run and has struck out seven through three appearances at this level

Cooper Bowman (John Brophy/Pinstriped Prospects)

Hudson Valley Renegades (19-23): They almost did it. The Renegades were down 10-1, and then 12-7, and nearly stormed back both times. They had the tying runs in scoring position in the ninth, but couldn’t drive them in, succumbing 12-10 to Rome.

  • Star of the Game: Cooper Bowman – 2-for-4, 2 home runs (5), 5 RBI, 2 runs scored. Bowman homered in the fifth and eighth and provided half the ‘Gades offense as he saw his OPS balloon to .844
  • Trey Sweeney: 2-for-5, 1 home run (4), 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. Sweeney’s three-run jack in the seventh halved a six-run deficit
  • Everson Pereira: 2-for-4, 1 double, 2 walks, 1 strikeout
  • Eric Wagaman: 2-for-3, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 walks
  • Beck Way: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 36 pitches (19 strikes). Way took the loss and couldn’t make it out of the first inning
  • Jhonatan Muñoz: 3 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 51 pitches (32 strikes)
  • Bryan Blanton: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 3 R (1 ER), 3 BB, 0 K, 32 pitches (16 strikes)
  • Tanner Myatt: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R (0 ER), 0 BB, 4 K, 35 pitches (25 strikes)
  • Charlie Ruegger: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 32 pitches (20 strikes)
  • Nelson L. Alvarez: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 14 pitches (7 strikes)

Tampa Tarpons (20-23): The Tarpons scored four runs in the ninth to tie the game, then took the lead in the tenth – but could not hold it, dropping a truly devastating contest in walk-off fashion to the Flying Tigers 10-9.

  • Star of the Game: Antonio Gomez – 1-for-5, 1 home run (2), 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Gomez hit a three-run homer in the ninth that brought Tampa within one run
  • Jasson Dominguez: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Marcos Cabrera: 1-for-5, 1 home run (8), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 3 strikeouts. Cabrera has homered in back-to-back games and in three of his last five
  • Benjamin Cowles: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, 1 stolen base. Cowles doubled home the tying run in the bottom of the ninth
  • Kyle Battle: 1-for-4, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 strikeouts, 1 stolen base. Battle has reached base safely in five of the six games he’s played this season
  • Richard Fitts: 5 IP, 4 H, 4 R (3 ER), 2 BB, 3 K, 88 pitches (58 strikes)
  • Trevor Holloway: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 31 pitches (18 strikes)
  • Harold Cortijo: 1 IP, 0 H, 3 ER, 5 BB, 2 K, 41 pitches (16 strikes)
  • Enrique Santana: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 19 pitches (11 strikes)
  • Jack Neely: 1 IP, 1 H, 3 R (2 ER), 1 BB, 1 K, 27 pitches (17 strikes). Neely served up the walk-off three-run bomb to fall to 2-1 on the year
