Pinstriped Performances: Britton Rehabs With Somerset

An eventful evening saw a familiar face take the hill for the Patriots before they walked off in dramatic fashion. Scranton and Hudson Valley took home comfortable wins, and Tampa faced the wrath of the weather.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (17-7): Scranton rode three home runs – all multi-run shots – and some stellar work in relief by Albert Abreu to a 10-2 victory over Lehigh Valley.

  • Star of the Game: Hoy Jun Park – 2-for-4, 1 home run (3), 3 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 walk. Park’s third home run in five games was a three-run shot that contributed to a five-run sixth inning
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Albert Abreu – 3.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K, 46 pitches (32 strikes). After a tough start from Adam Warren, Abreu gave the RailRiders exactly what they needed
  • Socrates Brito: 2-for-4, 1 home run (4), 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Brito’s two-run shot in the second inning broke a 1-1 tie
  • Trey Amburgey: 2-for-4, 1 home run (5), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Amburgey’s blast was the second of the sixth inning, with both coming against former RailRider Brady Lail
  • Thomas Milone: 3-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 3 runs scored. Milone, hitting .372, got back to his standard excellence one day after his eight-game hitting streak was snapped
  • Adam Warren: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 5 BB, 1 K, 42 pitches (19 strikes). Warren was lucky to give up just one run
  • Sal Romano: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 25 pitches (17 strikes)
  • Nick Goody: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K, 26 pitches (19 strikes)
  • Reggie McClain: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 9 pitches (7 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (18-7): Somerset rallied late and stole an impressive walk-off, 5-4 win over struggling Reading, but it was the presence of big-league royalty that stole the headlines.

  • Star of the Game: Diego Castillo – 1-for-4, 1 home run (3), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. Castillo’s game-tying two-run home run came with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning as Somerset snatched victory from the jaws of defeat
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Glenn Otto – 6 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 10 K, 88 pitches (59 strikes). Piggybacking off Zack Britton’s opener, Otto again dominated and posted his fifth straight outing with at least seven strikeouts. He has fanned 45 and walked just eight this season
  • Michael Beltre: 1-for-4, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Donny Sands: 3-for-5, 1 double, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Isiah Gilliam: 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout. Gilliam came through with the walk-off hit in the bottom of the tenth
  • Zack Britton: 1 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 27 pitches (15 strikes). Britton didn’t have an easy inning in his rehab debut, but the Yankees have to feel good just seeing him toeing the rubber
  • Carlos Espinal: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 24 pitches (15 strikes)
  • Greg Weissert: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 20 pitches (10 strikes). Weissert pitched a clean top of the tenth for his first win

Eric Wagaman (Robert M Pimpsner/Pinstriped Prospects)

Hudson Valley Renegades (14-11): Three home runs and another gritty effort from Luis Medina paced the Renegades in an 8-3 win in Wilmington.

  • Star of the Game: Eric Wagaman – 2-for-3, 1 home run (1), 1 double, 5 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. Wagaman was the engine that kept HV running on Wednesday, driving in more than half the team’s runs via his first long ball of the season and a double
  • Oswald Peraza: 0-for-5, 3 strikeouts
  • Ezequiel Duran: 2-for-3, 1 home run (3), 1 RBI, 3 runs scored, 2 walks. Duran’s 13 extra-base hits on the season are tied with Peraza for the team lead
  • Josh Breaux: 2-for-5, 1 home run (3), 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 strikeouts. Breaux needed a good offensive game in a big way; he’s still hitting just .171
  • Anthony Seigler: 1-for-3, 2 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout
  • Luis Medina: 4.2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 7 K, 91 pitches (52 strikes). The walks on Wednesday were unsightly, but Medina turned in an overall good performance. He’s struck out 46 and walked 16 on the year
  • Barrett Loseke: 2.1 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, 50 pitches (27 strikes)
  • Nick Ernst: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K, 33 pitches (21 strikes). Ernst picked up a well-deserved win

Tampa Tarpons (18-7): The rains arrived at GMS Field with Tampa’s matchup against Lakeland tied at four in the bottom of the sixth inning. The game will be completed tomorrow as part of a short doubleheader.
