Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (34-15): A home run from Estevan Florial was not enough as the RailRiders lost to the WooSox, 4-3.

  • Star of the Game: Estevan Florial – 2-for-5, 1 home run (5), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Florial has hit safely in six straight and 12 of 14, raising his batting average to .233 after a very rough start in Triple-A
  • Hoy Jun Park: 1-for-3, 1 run scored, 2 walks
  • Kyle Holder: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 walk
  • Trey Amburgey: 0-for-4, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. Amburgey’s franchise-record on base streak now sits at 38 games
  • Max McDowell: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 walk
  • Matt Krook: 2.2 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 5 BB, 5 K, 72 pitches (36 strikes). Krook hadn’t walked more than three hitters in an outing this season
  • Adam Warren: 2.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 41 pitches (22 strikes)
  • Brody Koerner: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 26 pitches (17 strikes)
  • Brian Keller: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 19 pitches (10 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (34-18): Five different Patriots homered, including three in the third inning, and Glenn Otto pitched brilliantly as Somerset walloped the Senators 10-0.

  • Star of the Game: Oswaldo Cabrera – 2-for-5, 1 home run (8), 1 double, 4 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 strikeouts. Cabrera’s home run was the only one that was not of the solo variety, and broke the game open as part of the six-run third inning
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Glenn Otto – 7 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 12 K, 88 pitches (63 strikes). In a season full of gems, this might have been Otto’s most impressive, as he took a no-hitter deep into the seventh inning before serving up a double and only allowed one other baserunner. He’s struck out at least 10 hitters in four out of nine starts
  • Diego Castillo: 2-for-5, 1 home run (10), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored. Castillo’s home run led off the game
  • Oswald Peraza: 2-for-4, 1 home run (3), 1 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 strikeout
  • Donny Sands: 2-for-4, 1 home run (9), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Michael Beltre: 1-for-4, 1 home run (8), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, 1 stolen base
  • Addison Russ: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 20 pitches (13 strikes)
  • Zach Greene: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 17 pitches (12 strikes)

Hudson Valley Renegades (33-19): The Renegades and BlueClaws put up a pair of 2-0 scorelines, each emerging victorious in one of them.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Jhony Brito – 5 IP, 5 H, 2 R (1 ER), 0 BB, 6 K, 82 pitches (59 strikes). Brito boasts a strong 3.11 ERA on the season and deserved better than a loss in this one
  • Ezequiel Duran: 2-for-3, 1 strikeout
  • Josh Breaux: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 strikeout
  • Derek Craft: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K, 18 pitches (9 strikes)

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Ezequiel Duran – 1-for-3, 1 home run (8), 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Duran’s OPS is over .900 for the season, and his fourth-inning solo shot gave the Renegades the lead
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Mitch Spence – 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K, 76 pitches (50 strikes). Spence has 38 strikeouts through 34.1 innings in 2021
  • Josh Breaux: 1-for-2, 1 walk
  • Frederick Cuevas: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 run scored
  • Elvis Peguero: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K, 26 pitches (22 strikes). Peguero’s two perfect innings earned him his second save

Tampa Tarpons (34-16): Saturday’s Hammerheads-Tarpons matchup was postponed and the two teams will play a doubleheader tomorrow.

FCL Yankees (2-1): Dominguez and Co. must keep waiting to play their fourth game. The contest between the Yanks and Tigers West will be made up on July 15.
