Pinstriped Performances: Deivi Struggles, Renegades Blank Brooklyn

In the second game of a doubleheader, Scranton suffered one of the worst losses by a Yankees affiliate this season. A pair of lesser-known pitchers led Hudson Valley to a shutout win, while Somerset and Tampa couldn’t get enough offense going.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (21-10): After narrowly taking the first game of the doubleheader 3-2, the RailRiders sent Deivi García to the mound to go for the sweep. He was tagged for two home runs and his club was routed 10-0 to emerge with a split.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Andrew Velazquez – 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout. Velazquez doubled home the first Scranton run in the fifth inning
  • Estevan Florial: 0-for-4
  • Mike Ford: 1-for-3, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Armando Alvarez: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 run scored
  • Brian Keller: 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 74 pitches (44 strikes)
  • Nick Goody: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 19 pitches (10 strikes). Goody’s win brought his record to 2-1 on the year
  • Zack Britton: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K, 10 pitches (5 strikes). Britton should soon be back in the Bronx
  • Luis García: 1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 2 K. García’s tenth save was an eventful one, as he gave up a two-out, two-run home run before shutting the door

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: None – Scranton managed only four hits and struck out eight times while allowing ten runs in just a seven-inning game.
  • Hoy Jun Park: 0-for-1, 3 walks
  • Kellin Deglan: 1-for-3, 1 double
  • Deivi García: 2 IP, 5 H, 5 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 63 pitches (34 strikes). Is it time to be concerned? García’s Triple-A ERA is up to 6.26 on the year and he’s walked 18 hitters in just 23 innings
  • Sal Romano: 1 IP, 4 H, 5 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 32 pitches (20 strikes)
  • Addison Russ: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K, 42 pitches (25 strikes)
  • Reggie McClain: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 8 pitches (6 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (20-12): Despite a strong outing from Luis Gil, the Patriots lost their third in a row to Erie in walk-off fashion, 3-2.

  • Star of the Game: Luis Gil – 4.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K, 92 pitches (59 strikes). Gil wasn’t exactly efficient, but the bat-missing stuff was there as it normally is. He has struck out 50 and walked 13 through 30.2 innings this year
  • Oswald Peraza: 0-for-5, 2 strikeouts. A reminder that the jump from High-A to Double-A is a big one. Peraza is 1-for-12 in his first three games with the Patriots
  • Diego Castillo: 1-for-4, 1 home run (5), 2 RBI, 1 run scored. Castillo gave Somerset a 2-0 lead with his clutch two-out home run in the sixth inning
  • Isiah Gilliam: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 strikeout
  • Cristian Perez: 2-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Jefry Valdez: 2.1 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 34 pitches (25 strikes)
  • Michael Gomez: 2 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 46 pitches (32 strikes). Gomez surrendered the game-tying home run in the bottom of the eighth
  • Greg Weissert: 0.1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 8 pitches (5 strikes). Weissert retired the first hitter he faced on a groundout, but then gave up a game-winning single in the bottom of the tenth

Hudson Valley Renegades (17-14): HV’s pitching was the story in this one, a hard-fought 1-0 win over the rival Cyclones.

  • Stars of the Game: Mitch Spence and Barrett Loseke. The 2019 tenth-round pick and 2018 17th-round pick put up nearly identical pitching lines and shut down the Cyclones lineup
    • Spence: 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K, 57 pitches (38 strikes)
    • Loseke: 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K, 50 pitches (35 strikes)
  • Josh Smith: 0-for-3, 1 walk
  • Ezequiel Duran: 0-for-2, 2 walks
  • Anthony Seigler: 0-for-4, 1 strikeout. Seigler is hitting just .150
  • James Nelson: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI
  • Isaiah Pasteur: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 strikeout
  • Zach Greene: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 8 pitches (7 strikes). Greene made quick work of Brooklyn for his first save of the season

Tampa Tarpons (23-10): Threshers pitching struck out nine Tarpons as Tampa fell in Clearwater, 6-3.

  • Star of the Game: Anthony Volpe – 2-for-4, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 walk. Volpe is 12-for-29 in the month of June, setting a scalding pace atop the Tarpons lineup
  • Trevor Hauver: 0-for-5, 2 strikeouts
  • Elijah Dunham: 2-for-3, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Jesus Bastidas: 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 stolen base
  • Ryan Anderson: 3.1 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 5 BB, 1 K, 72 pitches (33 strikes)
  • Michael Giacone: 3.2 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 52 pitches (36 strikes)
  • Derek Craft: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 24 pitches (14 strikes)
