Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Call It A Comeback

The Tarpons continually find new ways to surprise in what’s been an utterly magical season. Everson Pereira is making his case for inclusion on prospect lists everywhere, and Dermis Garcia fends off all comers for the organizational home run crown.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (51-24): Scranton lost to Lehigh Valley 5-4 to drop the week’s series four games to two.

  • Star of the Game: Chris Gittens – 1-for-3, 1 home run (9), 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks. Gittens has a ludicrous 1.270 OPS at Triple-A and is a clear victim of the organizational logjam
  • Sócrates Brito: 2-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 stolen base
  • Ryan LaMarre: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Max Burt: 1-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Deivi García: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 101 pitches (55 strikes). At the very least, García settled down after allowing all three of the earned runs in the first two innings. He wasn’t at all efficient, but he didn’t give up a home run
  • Ron Marinaccio: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 20 pitches (15 strikes)
  • Adam Warren: 1 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 20 pitches (14 strikes)
  • Sal Romano: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 17 pitches (12 strikes). Welcome back, Big Sally! After a week with Milwaukee following a waiver claim, Romano was DFAed, cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A, elected free agency, and signed a new minor league deal with the Yankees

Somerset Patriots (53-36): The Patriots hit three home runs, but the bullpen faltered to spoil the first day of Gary Sánchez’s rehab in a 10-5 loss to the Sea Dogs.

  • Star of the Game: Dermis Garcia – 1-for-3, 1 home run (24), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. Garcia has really embraced his brand this year. He leads the system as well as all of Double-A Northeast in home runs, and also by a large margin in strikeouts
  • Gary Sánchez: 0-for-2, 1 walk. By all accounts, it will be a very brief rehab for the Kraken, who looks set to rejoin the Yankees this week
  • Brandon Lockridge: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout, 2 stolen bases
  • Chad Bell: 1-for-4, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Bell recorded his first home run at Double-A in his sixth game
  • Thomas Milone: 1-for-4, 1 home run (6), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 3 strikeouts. Milone’s two-run blast tied the game in the second inning
  • Shawn Semple: 5 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 92 pitches (62 strikes)
  • Jefry Valdez: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 28 pitches (20 strikes)
  • Addison Russ: 1 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 21 pitches (12 strikes)
  • Zach Greene: 1 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 18 pitches (15 strikes)

Hudson Valley Renegades (56-34): The ‘Gades made an early 5-0 lead stand up, holding off the BlueClaws 5-4 for a split of the six-game series.

  • Star of the Game: Everson Pereira – 2-for-4, 1 home run (5), 2 RBI, 1 run scored. Pereira has compiled a 1.051 OPS with the team and has four of his five home runs in the last week
  • Anthony Volpe: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI
  • Austin Wells: 2-for-4, 1 double
  • Pablo Olivares: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Kyle MacDonald: 1-for-3, 2 RBI, 1 run scored
  • Mitch Spence: 5 IP, 6 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 89 pitches (60 strikes). Make it eight straight starts with at least five strikeouts for Spence
  • Charlie Ruegger: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 17 pitches (12 strikes)
  • Nelson L. Alvarez: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 14 pitches (10 strikes)
  • Derek Craft: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 10 pitches (8 strikes). Craft picked up his sixth save of the year

Tampa Tarpons (60-27): Sunday’s was a truly remarkable game in a season full of them. The Tarpons battled back from a 6-1 deficit, scoring three times in the ninth inning to tie the score and then walking it off in the 10th for a 7-6 win over Clearwater to take four out of five games in the series

  • Star of the Game: Tyler Hardman – 2-for-5, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 3 strikeouts. This year’s fifth-round selection came through in an absolutely huge spot in the ninth. His two-run single knotted the score at six
  • Jasson Dominguez: 1-for-5, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Trey Sweeney: 2-for-4, 1 home run (2), 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Sweeney quickly got his second Low-A home run in the first inning
  • Madison Santos: 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts, 1 stolen base
  • Ben Rice: 2-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. Rice, this year’s 12th-round pick out of Dartmouth, singled home the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning
  • Blane Abeyta: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 6 R (5 ER), 4 BB, 1 K, 48 pitches (23 strikes)
  • Carlos Gomez: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K, 53 pitches (36 strikes)
  • Ben Keizer: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 1 K, 43 pitches (19 strikes)
  • Wellington Diaz: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 23 pitches (14 strikes). Diaz recorded his fourth win for two strong innings of scoreless relief
