Pinstriped Performances: ‘Gades Make It Eight On Walk-Off Seigler Slam

Anthony Seigler lost most of his first three pro seasons to injuries and the pandemic, but some good things are worth waiting for: for the second time this week, he was mobbed on the field by his teammates after delivering the game’s final blow.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (31-13): A five-run outburst in the fifth inning sparked the RailRiders to a 10-4 demolition of rehabbing Didi Gregorius and the IronPigs.

  • Star of the Game: Derek Dietrich: 2-for-4, 1 home run (5), 5 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. Dietrich supplied the game’s biggest blow with his three-run home run with two outs in the fifth
  • Estevan Florial: 1-for-5, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. Florial is starting to hit a little bit – he’s 11 for his last 30
  • Chris Gittens: 1-for-3, 1 home run (5), 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 walks. Gittens has done nothing but hit at the Triple-A level in 2021
  • Rob Brantly: 2-for-5, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout
  • Armando Alvarez: 2-for-4, 1 double, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Andrew Velazquez: 1-for-5, 1 home run (4), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Velazquez has three of his four home runs during this single series against Lehigh Valley
  • Matt Krook: 4 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 71 pitches (41 strikes). Krook was effective, if not entirely efficient, in his first Triple-A start
  • Reggie McClain: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K, 33 pitches (21 strikes)
  • Nick Goody: 1 IP, 1 H, 2 R (1 ER), 0 BB, 0 K, 21 pitches (15 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (31-15): Hayden Wesneski silenced the Portland bats, and the lineup did just enough to secure a fourth consecutive win over the Sea Dogs by a 3-0 scoreline.

  • Star of the Game: Hayden Wesneski – 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K, 86 pitches (54 strikes). After a disastrous outing to begin his Double-A career, Wesneski bounced back in a big way and had very little trouble carving through the Sea Dogs lineup
  • Diego Castillo: 2-for-4, 1 home run (8), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Chalk up another multi-hit game for Castillo, who’s hitting .363 in June
  • Oswald Peraza: 0-for-4, 1 strikeout
  • Oswaldo Cabrera: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Dermis Garcia: 1-for-3, 1 home run (13), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Garcia added to his system-leading home run total with a two-run blast in the fourth
  • Michael Gomez: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 10 pitches (6 strikes)
  • Ron Marinaccio: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K, 24 pitches (17 strikes). Marinaccio was called upon to secure his first save of the year

Josh Smith (Robert M. Pimpsner)

Hudson Valley Renegades (30-16): The High-A Yanks are on a magical run this month. They engineered another comeback, this time from a 4-2 deficit, and while nightly hero Anthony Seigler only needed a base hit with three men on and nobody out in the ninth, he instead hit a grand slam.

  • Star of the Game: Anthony Seigler – 1-for-4, 1 home run (1), 4 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. An incredible way for Seigler to hit his first home run of 2021, as he took a 2-0 pitch over the right field wall to send everybody home
  • Josh Smith: 3-for-5, 1 triple, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Smith hasn’t missed a beat since his promotion, hitting .316 with a 1.082 OPS with the ‘Gades
  • Josh Breaux: 2-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout
  • Elijah Dunham: 1-for-4, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 strikeouts. Dunham’s clutch contributions shouldn’t be ignored – his first home run of the season tied the game at four with one out in the eighth
  • Jhony Brito: 4 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 79 pitches (57 strikes)
  • Elvis Peguero: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 37 pitches (23 strikes)
  • Nick Ernst: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K, 40 pitches (23 strikes). Ernst moved to a perfect 3-0 this year

Tampa Tarpons (31-15): The Lakeland weather finally cooperated and the Tarpons and Flying Tigers were able to play both games of their scheduled doubleheader. Tampa dropped the opener 7-5 before recovering to score two runs in the top of the seventh to steal the second game 6-5.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Anthony Volpe – 1-for-1, 1 double, 2 runs scored, 1 walk
  • Austin Wells: 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout
  • Pat DeMarco: 2-for-4, 1 run scored
  • Juan De Leon: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored
  • Pedro Diaz: 2-for-2, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Matt Sauer: 4 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 78 pitches (47 strikes)
  • Jhonatan Munoz: 2 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 28 pitches (22 strikes)

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Anthony Volpe – 3-for-4, 1 home run (9), 1 double, 1 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base. Volpe is slugging .803 this month with seven home runs. His steal of third base prompted a throwing error that allowed the tying run to score

  • Trevor Hauver: 1-for-2, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. Hauver’s sacrifice fly scored the game’s winning run
  • Eric Wagaman: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI
  • Randy Vasquez: 4 IP, 2 H, 3 R (0 ER), 3 BB, 6 K, 70 pitches (43 strikes). Vasquez has given up 22 runs this season, but only 12 of them have been earned
  • Nelvin Correa: 1 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 17 pitches (8 strikes)
  • Carson Coleman: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 15 pitches (9 strikes). Coleman picked up his second win
