Pinstriped Performances: More Fun In The Valley

These are the best of times at Dutchess Stadium as the Renegades seem simply unable to lose. Plus, the RailRiders were blanked by a former top prospect while the Patriots did to a Red Sox affiliate what the big-league Yanks can’t seem to do to the Sox.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (30-13): The RailRiders fell behind 6-0 early and could not recover, as 2013 number one overall pick Mark Appel shut them down and the IronPigs’ bullpen held the line in a 6-3 loss.

  • Star of the Game: Estevan Florial – 1-for-2, 1 home run (4), 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 3 walks, 1 strikeout. Florial accounted for most of Scranton’s offense with his ninth-inning two-run blast off former Yankee prospect Brady Lail
  • Chris Gittens: 1-for-3, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Derek Dietrich: 1-for-3
  • Deivi García: 2 IP, 5 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 54 pitches (30 strikes). It’s fair to wonder what’s gone so horribly wrong for a prospect who’s shined so brightly the last two seasons. García’s ERA is 8.80
  • Braden Bristo: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 29 pitches (19 strikes)
  • Justin Wilson: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 21 pitches (14 strikes)
  • Greg Weissert: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K, 27 pitches (18 strikes). Weissert has allowed no runs and struck out five through three appearances at Triple-A
  • Trevor Lane: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 27 pitches (19 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (30-15): The Patriots made an early 4-0 lead stand up as they handled Portland 7-4.

  • Star of the Game: Diego Castillo – 3-for-5, 1 home run (7), 1 double, 1 RBI, 3 runs scored. Castillo came up a triple short of the cycle, raising his batting average to .331 with his sixth multi-hit performance in his last 10 games
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Janson Junk – 7 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 79 pitches (55 strikes). Junk has given up five earned runs in 40 innings on the year
  • Oswald Peraza: 2-for-5, 2 doubles, 2 runs scored, 3 strikeouts
  • Donny Sands: 2-for-4, 1 home run (8), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. Sands has had quite the month of June, slugging .583 with seven of his eight homers during that span
  • Dermis Garcia: 0-for-5, 5 strikeouts. Garcia took home a Platinum Sombrero on Friday as he’s gone ice cold over the latter half of the month
  • Kevin Gadea: 2 IP, 5 H, 3 R (2 ER), 0 BB, 2 K, 42 pitches (29 strikes)

Hudson Valley Renegades (29-16): Remember when the ‘Gades were the one affiliate hanging around .500 while the other three racked up wins? That was a long time ago. Winners of 14 out of 17, Hudson Valley stormed back from an 8-3 deficit to steal an 11-9 win over Wilmington on Friday.

  • Star of the Game:  Anthony Seigler – 2-for-4, 1 double, 4 RBI. Seigler seems to have a knack for the big hit. With two outs, the game tied 8-8, and the bases loaded in the eighth inning, 2018’s first round pick came through with a bases clearing double
  • Ezequiel Duran: 3-for-5, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Kyle MacDonald: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Eduardo Torrealba: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout. Torrealba’s RBI double in the eighth inning tied the game at 8 and paved the way for Seigler’s heroics
  • Isaiah Pasteur: 1-for-4, 1 home run (1), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 3 strikeouts. Pasteur’s first homer of the year started a four-run rally in the home half of the seventh
  • Reid Anderson: 4 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 58 pitches (37 strikes). Anderson, who worked exclusively out of the pen with Somerset, has made two starts with Hudson Valley and has a 2.70 ERA so far
  • Nelson L. Alvarez: 0.1 IP, 4 H, 6 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 28 pitches (15 strikes)
  • Matt Minnick: 2.2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 40 pitches (23 strikes)
  • Charlie Ruegger: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 32 pitches (23 strikes). Ruegger worked into a bit of trouble in the top of the ninth but was able to shut the door and earn his third win of the year

Tampa Tarpons (30-14): The weather just will not cooperate this week – Tampa couldn’t play either half of their scheduled doubleheader. They’ll make up one of the games tomorrow, and the other on July 14.
