Pinstriped Performances: Just Joshin’

It took Josh Smith all of three pitches in his first game with Hudson Valley to sock his first High-A dinger. The Renegades split a doubleheader with their downstate rivals, while Tampa mashed thanks to big games from their big names.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (20-9): Scranton’s matchup with Buffalo in Trenton was postponed due to rain. The Bisons and RailRiders will play a doubleheader tomorrow.

Somerset Patriots (20-11): The Patriots jumped out to a quick 2-0 but relinquished it down the stretch and lost their second straight to Erie, 4-2.

  • Star of the Game: Oswaldo Cabrera – 2-for-4, 1 home run (4), 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Cabrera returned to the Somerset lineup after a stint with his national team Venezuela at the Olympic qualifiers in Florida
  • Oswald Peraza: 1-for-3, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Peraza picked up his first Double-A hit
  • Diego Castillo: 2-for-4, 1 strikeout
  • Dermis Garcia: 0-for-4, 3 strikeouts
  • Isiah Gilliam: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 stolen base

Hudson Valley Renegades (16-14): Some big home runs led the Renegades to a 3-2 win over Brooklyn in the first game of the twin bill. HV then dropped the second game 5-3.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Josh Smith – 1-for-3, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Making his Renegades debut, Smith led off the game under the bright lights in NYC with a solo bomb. The 2019 second-round pick has put together one of the most impressive all-around seasons in the system
  • Ezequiel Duran: 1-for-3, 1 home run (5), 2 RBI, 1 run scored. Duran’s two-run shot broke a 1-1 tie in the sixth inning. With Oswald Peraza now in Somerset, it’s up to Duran to set the pace
  • Josh Breaux: 0-for-3, 1 strikeout
  • Anthony Seigler: 0-for-3
  • Jhony Brito: 4 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 68 pitches (46 strikes). Brito has put together a strong season, striking out 26 and walking four in six starts
  • Tanner Myatt: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K, 19 pitches (11 strikes). Myatt picked up his first win
  • Nelson L. Alvarez: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 25 pitches (13 strikes)
  • Justin Wilson: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 12 pitches (8 strikes). Wilson held serve in a scoreless ninth for his first save

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Kyle MacDonald – 1-for-2, 1 home run (4), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. MacDonald went deep in the second inning as part of a three-run frame
  • Josh Smith: 0-for-2, 1 walk
  • Ezequiel Duran: 0-for-2, 1 strikeout
  • Frederick Cuevas: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored
  • Luis Medina: 5 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 80 pitches (48 strikes). Medina was not at his best on Wednesday and saw his ERA rise from 1.63 to 2.76
  • Nick Ernst: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 20 pitches (11 strikes)

Tampa Tarpons (22-9): The Tarpons jumped on Clearwater early and got just enough from their pitching to close out an 11-8 win.

  • Star of the Game: Trevor Hauver: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout. It’s been awhile since Hauver was featured in this space – but it’s not like he’s fallen off a cliff, as he lifted his average back over .300 with the multi-hit game on Wednesday
  • Anthony Volpe: 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 3 walks, 1 stolen base
  • Austin Wells: 1-for-5, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Andres Chaparro: 1-for-3, 1 home run (3), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 walks

  • Carlos Narvaez: 2-for-5, 2 runs scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Pat DeMarco: 1-for-4, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 walk
  • Anderson Munoz: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 29 pitches (16 strikes)
  • Wellington Diaz: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 25 pitches (9 strikes)
  • Jhonatan Munoz: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 1 R (0 ER), 2 BB, 2 K, 59 pitches (38 strikes). As the bulk relief man tonight, Munoz got his second win of the season
  • Kevin Milam: 0.2 IP, 3 H, 4 R (1 ER), 0 BB, 2 K, 34 pitches (19 strikes)
  • Trevor Holloway: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 37 pitches (24 strikes). A quiet multi-inning save kept Holloway’s strong season going
