Pinstriped Performances: Florial’s Two Bombs Pace Patriots

Estevan Florial powered Somerset’s offense in a comprehensive win over Harrisburg. Down in Florida, no Trevor Hauver or Jake Sanford, no problem for the white-hot Tarpons offense. The freezing weather couldn’t deter Chris Gittens and Scranton, while Hudson Valley’s bats have yet to wake up from the winter.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (3-1): Heavy rain in Syracuse cut the game short, but the RailRiders emerged with a 7-3 victory in six innings.

  • Luke Voit (rehab): 0-for-3, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. Voit is set to join the Yankees for their next road trip, according to YES Network
  • Chris Gittens: 1-for-1, 1 home run, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 3 walks. Gittens has posted a gaudy 1.443 OPS over four games
  • Robinson Chirinos: 3-for-3, 1 home run, 2 RBI, 1 run scored. Chirinos continues to work his way back from a wrist fracture sustained during spring training
  • Greg Allen: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Trey Amburgey: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 walk
  • Nick Green: 2.1 IP, 4 H, 3 R (2 ER), 1 BB, 3 K, 53 pitches (30 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (3-1): Florial was the story, but Somerset dominated all facets of the game in their 10-2 win.

  • Estevan Florial: 2-for-3, 2 home runs, 4 RBI, 2 walks, 1 strikeout. Florial went deep to lead off the game and added a three-run blast in the third inning. He has three homers on the season
  • Thomas Milone: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Michael Beltre: 2-for-5, 1 double, 1 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 walk

  • Janson Junk: 3.2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 58 pitches (36 strikes). The 25-year-old 22nd-round pick appeared in one game each at Double-A and Triple-A in 2019
  • JP Sears: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 47 pitches (28 strikes)
  • Stephen Ridings: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K, 42 pitches (30 strikes). Ridings, a Long Island native and D-III college product out of Haverford, made his first appearance in the Yankees system after being released by the Royals. He hadn’t pitched above short-season ball and last appeared at the rookie level for the Idaho Falls Chukars of the Pioneer League
  • Greg Weissert: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 8 pitches (7 strikes)

Hudson Valley Renegades (1-3): The Renegades out-hit Jersey shore 3-1 but lost the game 1-0.

  • Oswald Peraza: 0-for-3, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Peraza is just 1-for-16 with one double to start the season
  • Ezequiel Duran: 0-for-4, 1 strikeout
  • Mickey Gasper: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Gasper recorded Hudson Valley’s only extra-base hit of the night
  • Jhony Brito: 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 57 pitches (43 strikes). Brito made a strong first impression in his High-A debut after a strong 2019 season in Charleston
  • Charlie Ruegger: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 36 pitches (19 strikes). Ruegger was extremely unlucky to take the loss in this one. He was dominant in relief of Brito and surrendered the game’s only run on a wild pitch
  • Matt Minnick: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 13 pitches (8 strikes)
