Pinstriped Performances: Nailbiters Galore

All five games around the system on Thursday were decided by one or two runs, and two of them went into extra innings.

JP Sears (Chris Jones)

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (18-31): Two home runs were not enough for the RailRiders, who dropped a 3-2 decision to the IronPigs.

  • Star of the Game: JP Sears – 4.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 4 K, 75 pitches (48 strikes). Sears was working on a no-hitter into the fifth inning, when a throwing error by Armando Alvarez proved the chance Lehigh Valley needed – and they strung together three hits to score three runs and knock Sears out of the game
  • Phillip Evans: 1-for-4, 1 home run (3), 1 RBI, 1 run scored
  • Armando Alvarez: 1-for-3, 1 home run (4), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Though his error was costly, Alvarez also provided half of Scranton’s offense
  • Jose Mujica: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 20 pitches (14 strikes)
  • Braden Bristo: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 39 pitches (25 strikes)
  • Vinny Nittoli: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 10 pitches (8 strikes)

  • Anthony Volpe: 1-for-3, 1 double
  • Will Warren: 4.2 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 81 pitches (54 strikes). The jump from High-A to Double-A is a big one, and Warren felt the heat in his debut

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Brandon Lockridge – 2-for-4, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Lockridge put the Patriots in front in the extra inning with a run-scoring double

  • Randy Vasquez: 4.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R (1 ER), 1 BB, 6 K, 81 pitches (53 strikes). Vasquez has made eight starts and hasn’t allowed more than two runs in any of them

Hudson Valley Renegades (21-26): ‘Gades pitching was mostly dominant, but a two-run Aberdeen rally in the eighth inning doomed HV to a 2-1 loss.

  • Star of the Game: Beck Way – 5 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K, 73 pitches (45 strikes). Way has looked much better in two of his last three starts
