Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Homer Happy

The Patriots and Renegades hit six home runs between the two of them en route to two easy victories, while the RailRiders were swept in embarrassing fashion.

Armando Alvarez (Matt Bufano)

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (9-13): A nightmare season got even worse on Friday as the RailRiders lost both ends of a doubleheader to Lehigh Valley, 11-3 and 7-3.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Phillip Evans – 2-for-3, 1 home run (1), 2 RBI, 1 run scored. Evans went deep in the first inning to give Scranton a short-lived lead
  • Oswald Peraza: 1-for-3, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Jose Peraza: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 strikeout
  • Luis Gil: 4 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, 76 pitches (46 strikes). Gil surrendered two long balls on Saturday and sports an unsightly 12.00 ERA on the season
  • Braden Bristo: 0.2 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 32 pitches (14 strikes)
  • Jose Mujica: 1 IP, 2 H, 3 R (2 ER), 1 BB, 0 K, 28 pitches (16 strikes)
  • Reggie McClain: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 30 pitches (18 strikes)

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Armando Alvarez – 1-for-3, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Alvarez hit his first home run of the year in just his fourth game
  • Oswald Peraza: 1-for-3, 1 walk
  • Ronald Guzmán: 1-for-3, 1 walk
  • JP Sears: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 48 pitches (27 strikes). Sears has two appearances with Scranton since being sent down, and pitched 2.1 innings – allowing one earned run – in each of them
  • Shelby Miller: 1.2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 36 pitches (20 strikes)
  • Zach Greene: 1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 33 pitches (16 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (12-7): Somerset rode a rejuvenated Luis Medina and power from the usual suspects to a 7-1 win over the Sea Dogs.

  • Star of the Game: Derek Dietrich – 2-for-4, 1 home run (3), 1 double, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 strikeouts. The veteran journeyman is hitting .355 with a 1.186 OPS
  • Anthony Volpe: 1-for-2, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Blake Perkins: 1-for-3, 1 home run (6), 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Perkins followed up his 13-for-27 stretch with a quick 0-for-11, but is now back on track
  • Chad Bell: 1-for-4, 1 home run (2), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Bell has now homered in two straight games and is 5 for his last 8
  • Luis Medina: 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K, 57 pitches (37 strikes). Finally some vintage Medina. The 22-year-old racked up his highest strikeout total of the season and posted his first start in which he did not give up a run
  • Josh Maciejewski: 4 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 62 pitches (39 strikes). Maciejewski was credited with the save for the extended relief effort

Hudson Valley Renegades (11-8): 10 hits, six of them for extra bases, and 12 strikeouts of Blue Rocks hitters punctuated a dominant 9-2 Renegades win over the visitors from Wilmington.

  • Star of the Game: Tyler Hardman – 2-for-5, 1 home run (1), 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. The scuffling Hardman singled home the game’s first run in the opening frame, then cranked a two-run bomb to left-center in the sixth for an eight-run lead
  • Trey Sweeney: 1-for-5, 1 home run (3), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 3 strikeouts. Sweeney’s solo home run gave the ‘Gades a 5-0 lead
  • Cooper Bowman: 1-for-3, 1 triple, 2 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout, 2 stolen bases
  • Austin Wells: 2-for-3, 1 home run (2), 2 RBI, 3 runs scored, 2 walks, 2 stolen bases. Wells is stuffing the stat sheet this year – he’s hitting .321 with six extra-base hits, he’s walked 14 times, and has an impressive seven stolen bases
  • Eric Wagaman: 2-for-3, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Aldenis Sanchez: 2-for-5, 1 triple, 1 RBI, 3 strikeouts
  • Beck Way: 5 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 69 pitches (43 strikes). Way has a 3.77 ERA on the season
  • Nelvin Correa: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K, 42 pitches (22 strikes). 6.2 innings pitched, still no earned runs allowed on the season for Correa
  • Charlie Ruegger: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 23 pitches (17 strikes)

Tampa Tarpons (8-10): Tampa’s tilt with Lakeland was postponed due to rain. The Tarpons and Flying Tigers will play a doubleheader tomorrow.
