Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Hauver Stays Hot, Wesneski Tosses Gem

Tampa won its first three games against Dunedin to open the season, while Scranton’s furious comeback against a familiar face downed Syracuse and the bats for the two teams in the middle fell silent on Thursday.

Trey Amburgey (Matt Bufano)

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (2-1): After falling behind 9-5 entering the sixth inning, the RailRiders offense tattooed erstwhile Yankee Stephen Tarpley for seven earned runs and went on to win 17-11, taking the series from the Mets.

  • Miguel Andújar: 4-for-5, 2 home runs, 3 RBI, 4 runs scored, 1 walk. After Tarpley had already suffered through a difficult sixth inning, Andujar greeted his former teammate with a two-run shot after a Chris Gittens walk in the seventh, and chased him from the game. He’s clearly a cut above the competition in Triple-A
  • Chris Gittens: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 walk. Gittens replaced Kyle Holder in the third inning and did some damage
  • Socrates Brito: 2-for-6, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Trey Amburgey: 3-for-6, 1 home run, 3 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 strikeout
  • Rob Brantly: 2-for-3, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Andrew Velasquez: 2-for-4, 2 doubles, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 stolen base
  • Deivi García: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 5 ER, 7 BB, 3 K, 70 pitches (32 strikes). Garcia did not have it this evening, setting a career-high for walks in a single start
  • Addison Russ: 1 IP, 2 H, 4 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 38 pitches (19 strikes). Tough start to Russ’s Yankees career
  • Braden Bristo: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 0 K, 30 pitches (16 strikes). Bristo did just enough to warrant the win in what was less than a banner night for pitching
  • Nick Goody: 2 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 36 pitches (21 strikes)
  • Luis Garcia: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 13 pitches (7 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (2-1): Another strong performance from Patriots pitching, which combined for 11 strikeouts, was wasted in a 5-2 loss to Harrisburg.

  • Estevan Florial: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 strikeout. Florial recorded Somerset’s only extra-base hit of the night. He’s hitting .250 with a .917 OPS after one series
  • Diego Castillo: 2-for-4, 1 run scored
  • Donny Sands: 1-for-3, 1 RBI
  • Matt Krook: 2.2 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 51 pitches (30 strikes). The Rule V Draft pick from the Tampa Bay Rays labored, but acquitted himself well in his Yankees system debut
  • Carlos Espinal: 3.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K, 44 pitches (28 strikes). The 24-year-old made his first appearance above Low-A
  • Kevin Gadea: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 26 pitches (19 strikes). Gadea was very unlucky to pick up the loss in his first minor league appearance in five years
  • Reid Anderson: 1 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 22 pitches (13 strikes). Anderson made the jump all the way from rookie ball and was hit hard, though the Brown University product and 40th-round pick did record two swinging strikeouts

Hayden Wesneski (Brian Blalock)

Hudson Valley Renegades (1-2): Hayden Wesneski was brilliant, but the Renegades couldn’t muster up any offense and dropped their opening series to the BlueClaws.

  • Oswald Peraza: 1-for-4, 1 double
  • Ezequiel Duran: 2-for-4, 1 strikeout. Duran is hitting .385 through three games
  • Brandon Lockridge: 0-for-3, 1 walk
  • Josh Breaux: 1-for-4, 1 home run, 2 strikeouts. It’s been all or nothing with Breaux, who’s hitting .185 but with an .853 OPS
  • Hayden Wesneski: 5 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 8 K, 53 pitches (38 strikes). An economical, dominant evening for 2019’s sixth-round pick, making his full-season debut after struggling with Pulaski two years ago even in a loss. 
  • Tanner Myatt: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 4 R (3 ER), 2 BB, 2 K, 38 pitches (21 strikes)
  • Nelson L. Alvarez: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 25 pitches (15 strikes)

Tampa Tarpons (3-0): No one is stopping this offense right now. Tampa banged out 13 more hits and jumped out to a 7-1 lead before winning its third straight over Dunedin, 10-6.

  • Anthony Volpe: 3-for-5, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Volpe is hitting .462 with three doubles
  • Trevor Hauver: 3-for-4, 1 home run, 1 double, 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Hauver is downright unconscious at the plate. He’s hitting .800 with a 2.924 OPS and came a triple shy of the cycle on Thursday
  • Austin Wells: 0-for-5, 2 strikeouts
  • Spencer Henson: 1-for-4, 1 home run, 3 RBI, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. Henson notched his first round-tripper of the year after hitting six in 2019 between Pulaski and Staten Island
  • Jake Sanford: 2-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Evan Alexander: 2-for-4, 2 doubles, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout
  • Randy Vasquez: 3 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 48 pitches (29 strikes)
  • Sean Boyle: 3 IP, 1 H, 1 R (0 ER), 0 BB, 4 K, 42 pitches (28 strikes). 2018’s 25th-round pick was awarded the win
  • Edgar Barclay: 2 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 40 pitches (24 strikes)
  • Zach Kohn: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 16 pitches (8 strikes)
