Somerset Patriots (50-29): The Patriots went down early 2-0 and then roared back for a 6-2 win once Hayden Wesneski settled down and the bats took over.

  • Star of the Game: Dermis Garcia – 2-for-4, 2 home runs (22), 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 strikeouts. Garcia lengthened his system-wide lead in homers with two more solo shots. He’s picked it up over the last month, with his OPS rising to .761 even though he’s still not hitting for average
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Hayden Wesneski – 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R (1 ER), 1 BB, 7 K, 86 pitches (62 strikes). Wesneski got into a jam in the first but was nails after that. This was by far his best outing in a Patriots uniform
  • Oswald Peraza: 2-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Josh Breaux: 2-for-4, 1 home run (1), 2 RBI, 1 run scored. With his first at Double-A, Breaux kept himself in the race for system home run king, as he now has 18 in total on the year
  • Isiah Gilliam: 2-for-4, 1 double, 2 strikeouts. Gilliam is now riding a seven-game hitting streak
  • Jesus Bastidas: 2-for-3, 1 run scored, 1 walk

Tampa Tarpons (55-24): Beck Way’s best start as a pro led Tampa to a 2-1 win over Jupiter in the doubleheader’s first leg, while the Tarpons couldn’t rally late and dropped the second game 7-6.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Beck Way – 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R (0 ER), 0 BB, 8 K, 82 pitches (59 strikes). Even more impressive than the punchouts and the zero earned runs is the zero walks, given how Way’s rookie season has gone
  • Jasson Dominguez: 1-for-3, 2 strikeouts
  • Trey Sweeney: 0-for-3, 1 strikeout
  • Madison Santos: 0-for-3, 2 strikeouts. Santos, who’d carved up the FCL for five weeks, made his full-season debut
  • Carlos Narvaez: 1-for-3, 1 home run (5), 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Narvaez’s solo shot, plus an Eric Wagaman sac fly, were all the offense the Tarpons would need
  • Roberto Chirinos: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Carson Coleman: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 10 pitches (6 strikes). Coleman locked down his third save

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Luis Santos – 1-for-3, 1 home run (1), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Santos, a 21-year-old who spent 2019 between Pulaski and Staten Island, breathed life back into Tampa with a two-run homer in the seventh that made it a one-run game

  • Benjamin Cowles: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 strikeouts
  • Ryder Green: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 1 strikeout

  • Roberto Chirinos: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 run scored
  • Evan Alexander: 2-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Tyrone Yulie: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, 58 pitches (31 strikes). The 20-year-old has 10 strikeouts in 7.2 Low-A innings
  • Carlos Gomez: 1.2 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 3 BB, 1 K, 47 pitches (26 strikes)
  • Nelvin Correa: 3 IP, 2 H, 1 R (0 ER), 0 BB, 2 K, 38 pitches (25 strikes)
