Pinstriped Performances: Breaux Powers Renegades To Sixth Straight Win

The Yankees system had yet another perfect evening with all four teams emerging victorious, three of them in decisive fashion. Josh Breaux led the charge with a multi-homer game for Hudson Valley.

Chris Gittens (Matt Bufano)

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (30-12): Scranton’s eight-game win streak may have ended on Wednesday, but the team didn’t wait long to get back on track, dispatching Lehigh Valley with ease 10-2.

  • Star of the Game: Chris Gittens – 4-for-6, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Gittens returned to Triple-A following Luke Voit’s activation from the IL and also returned to his raking ways. He’s hitting .322 this year in a RailRiders uniform
  • Estevan Florial: 2-for-6, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 strikeouts. Florial has begun to hit a little bit and is knocking on the door of the Mendoza Line at .198
  • Trey Amburgey: 1-for-4, 1 double, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 walks. Amburgey is up to .351 with eight doubles, six homers, and 30 RBI
  • Socrates Brito: 2-for-6, 3 RBI, 1 run scored
  • Nick Nelson: 5 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 70 pitches (42 strikes)
  • Darren O’Day: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 18 pitches (13 strikes). A solid second rehab outing for O’Day
  • Adam Warren: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 35 pitches (20 strikes)
  • Brian Keller: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 18 pitches (12 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (29-15): The Patriots’ tilt against Portland was tight throughout and fans up at Hadlock Field were treated to some free baseball. Somerset eventually emerged the victors in 10 innings, 5-4.

  • Star of the Game: Dermis Garcia – 1-for-3, 1 home run (12), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. After a red-hot stretch in mid-May, Garcia is just 8-for-54 in June and homered on Thursday for the first time in two weeks
  • Oswald Peraza: 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Michael Beltre: 1-for-4, 3 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Thomas Milone: 1-for-3, 1 triple, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout. Milone is hitting .345 at Double-A this year
  • Matt Pita: 2-for-5, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout. Pita’s RBI groundout in the top of the 10th gave Somerset the late lead
  • JP Sears: 3 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 53 pitches (36 strikes)
  • Nick Green: 3 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 41 pitches (24 strikes)
  • Keegan Curtis: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 35 pitches (21 strikes)
  • Stephen Ridings: 2.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 27 pitches (18 strikes). It’s hard to overstate just how great Ridings has been all season long. The Long Island native has given up just one earned run in 17 innings out of the pen

Josh Maciejewski (Robert M. Pimpsner)

Hudson Valley Renegades (28-16): Winners of six in a row and 13 of their last 16, the Renegades kept rolling with a well-rounded 6-1 triumph over Wilmington.

  • Star of the Game: Josh Breaux – 2-for-4, 2 home runs (6), 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk. Breaux went deep in the fifth and sixth innings and is quietly starting to heat up – he’s gone 15 for his last 40 with three doubles and three home runs over that span
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Josh Maciejewski – 5 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, 73 pitches (51 strikes). Maciejewski had largely struggled this year, up until this absolute gem of a performance
  • Josh Smith: 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Pablo Olivares: 1-for-3, 1 double. Olivares hadn’t played in exactly a month
  • Eduardo Torrealba: 2-for-3, 1 run scored
  • Kyle MacDonald: 1-for-2, 1 double, 1 run scored, 2 walks
  • Barrett Loseke: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K, 50 pitches (32 strikes)
  • Derek Craft: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 7 pitches (6 strikes)

Tampa Tarpons (30-14): Perhaps the third time will be the charm in the Tarpons’ fight against the elements. For the second straight day, they took the first leg of a doubleheader, this time in an easy 10-2 rout over Lakeland. And for the second straight day, the nightcap was rained out. They’ll try again tomorrow.

  • Star of the Game: Edgar Barclay – 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 7 K, 72 pitches (53 strikes). Barclay’s second start of the year went swimmingly. He has 42 strikeouts and 13 walks in 31 innings overall this season
  • Anthony Volpe: 1-for-5, 1 triple, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Austin Wells: 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Andres Chaparro: 2-for-3, 1 double, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk. Chaparro hit his 12th double and is batting .285
  • Carlos Narvaez: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored
  • Eric Wagaman: 2-for-2, 1 home run (1), 4 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. Wagaman’s first homer of the year came as part of a nine-run outburst in the fifth inning
  • Enrique Santana: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 24 pitches (13 strikes). The 23-year-old Santana, signed as a free agent just six days ago, had a clean Tampa debut
  • Wellington Diaz: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 22 pitches (15 strikes)
