Pinstriped Performances: In Full Swing

Friday was the first night of action for Somerset, Hudson Valley and Tampa. In a twin bill for Scranton, a familiar face made an emphatic return.

Greg Bird (Cheryl Pursell)

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (4-0): An eventful doubleheader sweep over Syracuse, 7-6 and 10-1, saw a grand return for Greg Bird and the system’s first multi-homer game of the year.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Greg Bird – 2-for-5, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Back in the Yanks’ organization after opting out of his minor league deal with the Blue Jays, Bird turned the clock back and took the third pitch he saw over the center field wall
  • Phillip Evans: 2-for-3, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored
  • Tim Locastro: 2-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Jose Peraza: 1-for-4, 1 RBI. Peraza’s RBI base hit in the eighth supplied the winning margin
  • Deivi Garcia: 3 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 1 K, 53 pitches (27 strikes). Garcia struggled with control in his first start of the year
  • Vinny Nittoli: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 38 pitches (21 strikes)
  • Reggie McClain: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 1 K, 25 pitches (10 strikes)
  • David McKay: 2 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 27 pitches (20 strikes). The recent acquisition allowed the tying runs to score in the seventh, but was bailed out by an eighth-inning rally and escaped with the win
  • Greg Weissert: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 19 pitches (11 strikes). Weissert notched his first save of the season

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Ender Inciarte – 2-for-5, 2 home runs (2), 4 RBI, 2 runs scored, 3 strikeouts. A true-outcome day for Inciarte, who hit two-run home runs in the second and fourth innings
  • Oswaldo Cabrera: 3-for-4, 2 doubles, 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Cabrera is off to a hot start, hitting .455
  • David Freitas: 3-for-4, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. Freitas provided the first blow of a six-run second inning
  • Matt Pita: 2-for-3, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Ryan Weber: 4 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 50 pitches (33 strikes)
  • Shawn Semple: 3 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 49 pitches (32 strikes). Semple got his first win of the year

Josh Breaux (Matt Kardos)

Somerset Patriots (1-0): Anthony Volpe lived up to the hype in his anticipated Double-A debut, and the Patriots took care of Reading 6-2.

  • Star of the Game: Josh Breaux – 1-for-4, 1 home run (1), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Breaux picked up where he left off following a 2021 campaign in which he hit 23 homers
  • Anthony Volpe: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored. Leading off in his Somerset debut, Volpe singled in his first at-bat and doubled in his next one
  • Elijah Dunham: 2-for-5, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 strikeouts
  • Michael Beltre: 2-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 stolen base
  • Luis Medina: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 2 K, 41 pitches (16 strikes). One of the unfortunate 40-man members who had to sit out minor league camp during the lockout, Medina showed some serious rust
  • Barrett Loseke: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 30 pitches (17 strikes). Loseke earned the win in relief
  • Josh Maciejewski: 3 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 59 pitches (33 strikes)
  • Michael Gomez: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 2 K, 33 pitches (16 strikes)

  • Pat DeMarco: 4-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 run scored
  • Matt Sauer: 3 IP, 5 H, 2 R (1 ER), 1 BB, 6 K, 60 pitches (43 strikes). This is an important season for Sauer, who posted a disappointing 4.69 ERA across two levels in 2021
  • Edgar Barclay: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 35 pitches (24 strikes)
  • Nelson L. Alvarez: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 1 K, 28 pitches (17 strikes)

  • Jasson Dominguez: 1-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Antonio Gomez: 1-for-4, 1 triple, 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. Gomez’s bases-clearing triple in the fifth turned a 3-1 deficit into a 4-3 Tarpons lead
