Pinstriped Performances: DeRailed

Scranton is desperately in need of something – anything – to stop the early-season bleeding. The organization’s top prospect shows some signs of stirring from his April slumber.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (5-8): The RailRiders have now lost eight of nine after starting the year 4-0. They were swept by Buffalo in a doubleheader, losing the first game 2-1 and the second in walk-off fashion in eight innings, 6-5.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Miguel Andujar – 1-for-3, 1 home run (2), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Andujar’s solo shot in the fourth inning was all the offense Scranton could manage
  • Greg Bird: 1-for-2, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Hayden Wesneski: 4.2 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 75 pitches (48 strikes). Wesneski was more than solid, but took the tough-luck loss to fall to 0-2 on the year
  • Zach Greene: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 33 pitches (18 strikes)

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Matt Pita – 1-for-3, 1 home run (2), 3 RBI, 1 run scored. Pita, who also recorded an outfield assist, hit a three-run home run in the third inning and is slugging a ridiculous 1.083 on the year
  • Oswald Peraza: 0-for-3, 2 strikeouts
  • Miguel Andujar: 2-for-4, 1 RBI
  • Ryan LaMarre: 1-for-2, 2 runs scored
  • Deivi Garcia: 4 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 76 pitches (44 strikes). Though he wasn’t exactly economical, this wasn’t Garcia’s worst performance of late
  • Reggie McClain: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 35 pitches (20 strikes)
  • Shelby Miller: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 21 pitches (14 strikes)
  • Trevor Lane: 0.1 IP, 1 H, 2 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 0 K, 13 pitches (7 strikes). Staked to a one-run lead going into the bottom of the eighth, Lane walked the leadoff hitter, who then advanced to third on an error and scored the winning run on a single

Somerset Patriots (7-4): The Patriots jumped out to a 5-0 lead and held on down the stretch to edge Hartford 5-4.

  • Star of the Game: Anthony Volpe – 1-for-3, 1 home run (2), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts, 1 stolen base. Volpe went deep to lead off the game, though he’s still hitting just .154 on the season and has struck out 16 times in 10 games
  • Josh Breaux: 1-for-5, 1 home run (5), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Breaux is second in the Eastern League with five homers, trailing only Richmond’s Sean Roby
  • Blake Perkins: 2-for-4, 1 triple, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 stolen base
  • Mitch Spence: 5 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K, 66 pitches (41 strikes). Spence earned his first win of the year
  • Barrett Loseke: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 43 pitches (24 strikes)
  • Charlie Ruegger: 0.2 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 24 pitches (15 strikes)
  • Derek Craft: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 21 pitches (16 strikes). Craft seems to have carved out a consistent ninth-inning role

Tanner Myatt (Robert M. Pimpsner)

Hudson Valley Renegades (5-6): A ninth-inning rally fell just short as the Renegades lost to Brooklyn, 4-3.

  • Star of the Game: Tanner Myatt – 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K, 34 pitches (21 strikes). Myatt has eight strikeouts and just one earned run allowed through four appearances this season
  • Austin Wells: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 walk, 1 stolen base
  • TJ Rumfield: 1-for-2, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout
  • Cooper Bowman: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, 2 stolen bases
  • James Nelson: 2-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 1 stolen base
  • Matt Sauer: 4.1 IP, 3 H, 2 R (0 ER), 0 BB, 7 K, 71 pitches (50 strikes). Were it not for errors in the first and fifth that allowed two runs to score, we’re talking about a signature performance from the 23-year-old
  • Nelson L. Alvarez: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, 39 pitches (21 strikes). Alvarez took the loss
  • Rodney Hutchison: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 22 pitches (11 strikes)

Tampa Tarpons (6-5): The high-flying Tarpons offense of 2021 is nowhere to be found so far this season. Tampa dropped another low-scoring contest to Clearwater, 3-1.

  • Star of the Game: Carlos Gomez – 3 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 47 pitches (35 strikes). The 23-year-old kept the Tarpons in the ballgame and has allowed just two earned runs in 9.2 innings
  • Alex Vargas: 1-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Antonio Gomez: 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Madison Santos: 3-for-4, 1 strikeout
  • Richard Fitts: 3 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, 60 pitches (36 strikes). Last year’s sixth-round pick has 10 strikeouts, but also five earned runs allowed, through 5.2 innings in his professional career so far
  • Danny Watson: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 32 pitches (17 strikes)
