Pinstriped Performances: Save Us, Sevy

Yankee fans who are enduring an underwhelming and unremarkable season from the big-league squad can rejoice in something, small as it may be: Luis Severino returned to a professional mound in a counting game for the first time since October 2019. He pitched the first two-plus innings in a big Tampa win as the Tarpons joined Scranton in the win column on Sunday.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (19-9): Losers of two in a row, the RailRiders built an early lead and hung on to salvage the series finale 4-3 over the IronPigs.

Somerset Patriots (20-9): Kelsey Grammer’s visit to TD Bank Ballpark was probably the most exciting occurrence for Patriot fans during an otherwise mundane 5-2 loss to Reading.

  • Star of the Game: Diego Castillo – 4-for-5, 1 home run, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout. Castillo accounted for half of Somerset’s total hits and raised his average to .350

  • Greg Weissert: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 25 pitches (19 strikes). Called on in garbage time on Sunday, Weissert struck out the side to prolong an elite stretch that has seen his ERA drop to 0.79

Hudson Valley Renegades (15-12): The Renegades lost a tough one on a walk-off, solo home run to drop their Sunday matinee 4-3 in Wilmington.

  • Star of the Game: Kyle MacDonald – 2-for-4, 1 home run (3), 3 RBI, 1 run scored. MacDonald’s two-out three-run home run tied the game in the top of the second after Wilmington had taken a quick lead in the first. The score would stay that way until the last hitter of the game
  • Oswald Peraza: 1-for-5, 2 strikeouts
  • Ezequiel Duran: 0-for-4, 1 strikeout
  • Anthony Seigler: 2-for-4, 1 double, 2 strikeouts

  • Hayden Wesneski: 5 IP, 4 H, 3 R (2 ER), 1 BB, 6 K, 79 pitches (53 strikes). Apart from the two-run home run he served up in the first inning, Wesneski was nearly perfect and continues a strong season with a 1.84 ERA
  • Matt Minnick: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 12 pitches (7 strikes)
  • Elvis Peguero: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 22 pitches (14 strikes)
  • Charlie Ruegger: 0 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 3 pitches (2 strikes). Ruegger surrendered the game-winning home run on the third pitch he threw

Tampa Tarpons (22-8): It was all smiling at GMS Field on Sunday as Severino returned and the Tampa offense flashed its usual shine in an 8-1 win over Lakeland.

  • Star of the Game: Chad Bell – 2-for-4, 1 home run (4), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Bell has been reliable at the bottom end of the Tampa order, quietly putting up a solid .884 OPS
  • Josh Smith: 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 2 walks, 1 strikeout. Smith has hit safely in 10 of his first 11 games for Tampa
  • Anthony Volpe: 2-for-5, 1 triple, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Volpe has a five-game hitting streak, with four of those games falling in the multi-hit category
  • Austin Wells: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks. Though the power’s been lacking with no home runs since Opening Day, Wells does have nine doubles and two triples
  • Trevor Hauver: 1-for-3, 2 RBI, 2 walks, 1 strikeout
  • Jake Sanford: 1-for-5, 1 double, 1 strikeout
  • Luis Severino: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 34 pitches (24 strikes). Check off the box – Severino has made his first rehab start and looked good if rusty, reaching his usual velocity per Statcast
  • Beck Way: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 34 pitches (22 strikes). An efficient three innings of work was good for a win for the rookie right-hander, who hasn’t allowed a run in 5.2 innings
  • Trevor Holloway: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 18 pitches (14 strikes)
  • Wellington Diaz: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K, 19 pitches (8 strikes)
  • Derek Craft: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 15 pitches (8 strikes)
