Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Mashing in Maine

Five home runs, including four in the first two innings, helped Somerset win its third in a row. The RailRiders played hero ball, and a High-A debut went swimmingly.

Greg Weissert (Chris Jones)

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (18-29): Scranton fought back from a 3-0 deficit and walked it off in the bottom of the ninth for a 4-3 win over Jacksonville.

  • Star of the Game: Ronald Guzmán – 2-for-4, 1 home run (3), 1 RBI, 1 run scored. The veteran’s solo home run in the seventh inning knotted the score at three, and his ninth-inning single moved the eventual winning run into scoring position
  • Jose Peraza: 1-for-4, 1 RBI
  • David Freitas: 0-for-0, 1 RBI. Pinch hitting for Evan Alexander, Freitas hit a sacrifice fly to score Armando Alvarez with the game-winning run
  • Vinny Nittoli: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 23 pitches (15 strikes)
  • Matt Krook: 5.1 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 4 BB, 5 K, 80 pitches (47 strikes). Krook appeared after an opener for the first time this season
  • Jose Mujica: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K, 9 pitches (5 strikes)
  • Greg Weissert: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 16 pitches (9 strikes). Weissert struck out the side in the top of the ninth to earn a win and move to 2-1

Somerset Patriots (29-15): Homer-happy Somerset rolled to a 12-4 win over the Sea Dogs and a series split ahead of a rare Monday game.

  • Star of the Game: Elijah Dunham – 4-for-4, 1 home run (7), 1 double, 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 stolen base. Dunham stuffed the stat sheet on Sunday, driving in his 20th, 21st, and 22nd runs of the year on his first-inning homer
  • Brandon Lockridge: 2-for-5, 1 home run (3), 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Lockridge has three multi-hit games in his last five outings

  • Andres Chaparro: 2-for-4, 1 home run (7), 1 RBI, 3 runs scored
  • Jeisson Rosario: 2-for-5, 1 home run (3), 1 double, 3 RBI, 2 runs scored. The 22-year-old has a three-game hitting streak and is slugging .444 this month
  • Mitch Spence: 5.2 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 86 pitches (59 strikes). A two-homer hiccup in the first inning aside, Spence was very solid and moved to 2-2 on the season with the win
  • Matt Minnick: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 20 pitches (13 strikes)

Anthony Seigler (Robert M. Pimpsner)

Hudson Valley Renegades (20-24): A two-run bomb from Anthony Seigler was all the offense the ‘Gades needed as they edged Rome 2-1.

  • Star of the Game: Anthony Seigler – 1-for-3, 1 home run (1), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 stolen base. Seigler has played six games since his promotion to High-A and has at least one hit in every one of them. He sports a 1.090 OPS
  • Pat DeMarco: 1-for-3, 1 double
  • TJ Sikkema: 2.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K, 44 pitches (29 strikes)

  • Josue Panacual: 4.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 2 K, 76 pitches (41 strikes). Panacual was making his Double-A debut and just his ninth appearance above rookie ball, but the 20-year-old looked anything but overmatched and earned the win
  • Carlos Gomez: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 33 pitches (19 strikes). Gomez wavered, but did not fall in the ninth to pick up his first save at High-A
