Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: High And Dry

Finally, an evening of baseball uninterrupted (in any major way) by the weather. All five Yankees affiliates got on the field and emerged with four wins as the Patriots enjoyed a grand slam, the Renegades enjoyed continued dominance of a rival, and Jasson Dominguez enjoyed his best night as a pro.

Trey Amburgey (Matt Bufano)

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (36-18): The RailRiders outhit the Mets 6-5 but lost the ballgame 2-1 in 10 innings.

  • Star of the Game: Trey Amburgey – 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Amburgey had Scranton’s only extra-base hit of the night and in doing so extended his on-base streak to 41 games
  • Estevan Florial: 0-for-5, 3 strikeouts. Florial was caught looking in the bottom of the 10th with runners on first and second to end the game
  • Rob Brantly: 2-for-4, 1 strikeout
  • Andrew Velazquez: 2-for-4, 1 strikeout
  • Deivi García: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 5 BB, 3 K, 92 pitches (49 strikes). The five free passes are an eyesore, but at least García was able to complete five innings for the first time since June 7
  • Reggie McClain: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 0 K, 25 pitches (13 strikes)
  • Braden Bristo: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 18 pitches (9 strikes). Bristo served up a two-out solo home run in the eighth that tied the game at one
  • Brooks Kriske: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 12 pitches (10 strikes)
  • Sal Romano: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R (0 ER), 0 BB, 0 K, 15 pitches (8 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (37-20): The Patriots and Seawolves split a doubleheader, with Somerset emerging victorious in the opener 9-2 and dropping the nightcap 4-1.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Oswaldo Cabrera – 1-for-4, 1 home run (11), 4 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Cabrera’s grand slam came as part of a six-run third inning and has him tied with Diego Castillo for second on the team
  • Diego Castillo: 2-for-3, 2 doubles, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout.
  • Donny Sands: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored
  • Michael Beltre: 2-for-3, 2 RBI, 1 run scored
  • Cristian Perez: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 run scored
  • JP Sears: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 70 pitches (43 strikes)
  • Elvis Peguero: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 38 pitches (22 strikes). Peguero held things down for his first win of the year

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Dermis Garcia: 1-for-2, 1 home run (15), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Garcia’s solo blast was one of just three hits for Somerset in the ballgame
  • Oswald Peraza: 1-for-3, 1 strikeout
  • Matt Pita: 1-for-2, 1 double, 1 strikeout
  • Hayden Wesneski: 5 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 81 pitches (52 strikes). Unlike his travel partners Luis Medina and Ken Waldichuk, Wesneski’s time in Double-A has been altogether difficult
  • Michael Gomez: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 13 pitches (7 strikes)

Jhony Brito (Robert M. Pimpsner)

Hudson Valley Renegades (37-19): It’s been a tale of two quarters for the resurgent Josh Breaux, who along with Jhony Brito led the ‘Gades to another win over Brooklyn, 6-4.

  • Star of the Game: Josh Breaux – 3-for-4, 1 home run (9), 1 double, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored. Breaux hit rock bottom when he was batting .123 on May 20, and it’s been all uphill from there. He hit a solo home run in the first inning and added another RBI on a double in the third
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Jhony Brito – 7 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, 86 pitches (63 strikes). Brito hadn’t gone more than 5.1 innings in a start this year and hadn’t pitched into the seventh inning since an eight-inning outing with Charleston on August 24, 2019
  • Josh Smith: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk. Smith carries a healthy 1.085 OPS
  • Anthony Seigler: 2-for-4, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 strikeout
  • Brandon Lockridge: 2-for-4
  • Trevor Holloway: 2 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 35 pitches (22 strikes). Holloway, a 2020 signee, was making his High-A debut

Tampa Tarpons (38-17): The Tarpons got a big home run from the resurgent Trevor Hauver and another sparkling outing from promising youngster Randy Vasquez to defeat Dunedin 4-1.

  • Star of the Game: Trevor Hauver – 1-for-3, 1 home run (7), 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. Hauver went deep six times in his first five games of the year – and had not homered since the last one in that stretch, on May 9. His average is back over .300 for the season
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Randy Vasquez – 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K, 87 pitches (52 strikes). Vasquez is angling for a promotion if he keeps this up. He hasn’t allowed more than a single earned run in his last six appearances, dating back to June 5
  • Anthony Volpe: 0-for-3, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout
  • Austin Wells: 1-for-5, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Everson Pereira: 1-for-3, 1 walk
  • Jake Sanford: 1-for-4, 1 home run (6), 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Sanford added a solo shot in the eighth to pad the Tampa lead

  • Tanner Myatt: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 7 pitches (4 strikes)
  • Carson Coleman: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 19 pitches (10 strikes)

FCL Yankees (6-1): The Yanks took a 7-2 lead and held on down the stretch, buoyed by a monster four-hit outing from a top prospect.

  • Star of the Game: Alex Vargas – 4-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 stolen base, 1 caught stealing. The 19-year-old is off to a hot start after hitting just .219 with the GCL Yanks two years ago
  • Jasson Dominguez: 2-for-5, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 stolen base. Dominguez came through with his first multi-hit game as a pro, and also added his first career run batted in in the fourth
  • Raimfer Salinas: 1-for-4, 1 RBI
  • Antonio Gomez: 1-for-3, 2 walks, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Anthony Garcia: 1-for-2, 1 home run (1), 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout. Garcia hit 10 home runs in the GCL three years ago and slugged .706 in six games with Pulaski in 2019
  • Nicio Rodriguez: 2.1 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K. The 21-year-old struggled in the DSL and GCL two years ago
  • Kenlly Montas: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K
  • Josue Panacual: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R (0 ER), 0 BB, 1 K. Panacual picked up the win

  • Christian Sumoza: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K
  • Jarod Lessar: 0.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K
