Pinstriped Performances: Duran Duran

Eight games in the Yankees system meant many highlights on a busy Tuesday, but no player shone brighter than the Renegades’ neophyte at the keystone, who had a night for the ages. Meanwhile, Scranton won in dramatic fashion and an FCLer hit for the cycle.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (42-21): The RailRiders’ return to the field after weather issues last week was dramatic enough to make up for all the lost games and then some. After falling behind 6-4 in the top of the 10th, Donny Sands’ bases-clearing double off erstwhile teammate Nick Goody sent Scranton fans home happy in a 7-6 defeat of Rochester.

  • Star of the Game: Donny Sands – 2-for-5, 1 home run (2), 1 double, 4 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Sands hit a solo home run in the fourth, but his biggest moment of the night was his walk-off. The 25-year-old journeyman has five hits, three of them for extra bases, in his first two Triple-A games
  • Armando Alvarez: 2-for-4, 2 home runs (5), 2 RBI, 2 runs scored. Alvarez contributed two solo blasts in the fourth and eighth
  • Matt Pita: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 strikeout
  • Deivi García: 6 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, 92 pitches (61 strikes). The two homers are unsightly, but Deivi is back to missing bats. It couldn’t come at a better time, since the Yankees are short on pitching at the moment
  • Sal Romano: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 17 pitches (11 strikes)
  • Brody Koerner: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 19 pitches (13 strikes)
  • Adam Warren: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 24 pitches (15 strikes)
  • Greg Weissert: 1 IP, 1 H, 2 R (1 ER), 0 BB, 0 K, 19 pitches (13 strikes). Despite surrendering the go-ahead home run in the top of the 10th, Weissert was let off the hook thanks to Sands’ heroics

Somerset Patriots (40-26): It looked like the Patriots were going to cruise to a win as they led 6-1 after six innings; instead, Altoona stormed back to score eight runs in a row and hold off Somerset 9-7.

  • Star of the Game: Isiah Gilliam – 1-for-3, 1 home run (4), 5 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Gilliam hit a three-run home run in the second inning and added two sacrifice flies. The 24-year-old is hitting a solid .341 in July
  • Oswald Peraza: 2-for-5, 1 home run (5), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Peraza’s solo blast in the first quickly got Somerset on the board
  • Brandon Lockridge: 3-for-5, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Dermis Garcia: 2-for-3, 1 double, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Janson Junk: 6 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, 91 pitches (60 strikes)
  • Barrett Loseke: 1 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 28 pitches (19 strikes)
  • Zach Greene: 0.2 IP, 4 H, 5 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 37 pitches (26 strikes)
  • Addison Russ: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 2 K, 27 pitches (14 strikes)

Hudson Valley Renegades (44-23): The Renegades orchestrated a thorough humiliation of the Aberdeen IronBirds on Tuesday, winning 19-1 thanks to six home runs. Nearly a third of the ‘Gades offensive output came off the bat of Ezequiel Duran, and Chad Bell chipped in two homers of his own.

  • Star of the Game: Ezequiel Duran – 3-for-5, 2 home runs (11), 6 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. Have a day, young man. A two-run shot and a three-run shot helped propel Hudson Valley to the massive win
  • Anthony Volpe: 3-for-6, 2 doubles, 1 RBI, 4 runs scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Josh Breaux: 2-for-4, 1 home run (14), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Breaux continues his meteoric rise – he’s now hitting .267 and .351 in the month of July
  • Jake Sanford: 1-for-6, 1 home run (3), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 3 strikeouts
  • James Nelson: 3-for-4, 4 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Chad Bell: 3-for-6, 2 home runs (8), 4 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 strikeouts. Bell has an impressive .908 OPS through 26 games at High-A
  • Pablo Olivares: 3-for-5, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored
  • Reid Anderson: 4 IP, 0 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 7 K, 94 pitches (54 strikes). Anderson has a 3.04 ERA with the Renegades
  • Sean Boyle: 3.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K, 37 pitches (30 strikes). Boyle got his first High-A win thanks to his efficient relief outing
  • Carlos Espinal: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 16 pitches (13 strikes)

Tampa Tarpons (45-21): The Tarpons could not keep Clearwater off the scoreboard as they fell 12-6 despite some brilliance from one of the most exciting young stars in the system.

  • Star of the Game: Everson Pereira – 3-for-5, 1 home run (3), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. In his first ten games at the full-season level, Pereira has five extra-base hits, is hitting .436, and has an OPS of 1.255. That’ll play
  • Jasson Dominguez: 1-for-5, 1 strikeout
  • Trevor Hauver: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Ryder Green: 1-for-4, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. Green hit his first home run at Low-A in the fifth inning
  • Pedro Diaz: 2-for-4, 1 home run (1), 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout. The 23-year-old had his second multi-hit game of the season

FCL Yankees (11-4): The Yanks wrapped up a suspended game from a week ago, blanking the Tigers West 4-0, before taking the field again for the regularly scheduled matchup and hammering the same team 17-4 in a win so big it called for two stars of the game.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Alex Guerrero – 2-for-2, 1 home run (1), 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. Guerrero went deep for the first time this season and is rocking a delightful .421 batting average
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Carlos Gomez – 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K. Gomez’s three sparkling innings of relief earned him his first win of 2021
  • Antonio Gomez: 1-for-2, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Dionys Vallejo: 1-for-1, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Vallejo homered after entering as a defensive replacement in his only at-bat of the night
  • Roberto Chirinos: 1-for-2, 1 home run (1), 2 RBI, 1 run scored. Chirinos played in the FCL and then headed across the street to start for the Tarpons at shortstop
  • Alfred Vega: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K
  • Kenlly Montas: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Madison Santos – 4-for-5, 1 home run, 1 triple, 1 double, 6 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout. That’s a cycle! Santos has been on fire to start the season – he’s now hitting .385 with a gaudy 1.337 OPS
  • Star of the Game: Stanley Rosario – 4-for-4, 2 home runs (2), 1 triple, 5 RBI, 3 runs scored. Rosario, a New York native, struggled for two seasons in the GCL but put together the best game of his young career on Tuesday

  • Kevin Alcantara: 2-for-4, 1 home run (1), 2 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. The highly-touted Alcantara is hitting .353 on the year
