Somerset Patriots (20-8): Zack Britton’s second rehab outing in his road back to the Bronx coincided with Somerset’s authoritative sweep of bottom-dwelling Reading by scores of 7-2 and 6-1.

Game 1

Hudson Valley Renegades (15-12): Ken Waldichuk, the unquestioned ace in a stable of high quality pitching at Dutchess Stadium, lifted his squad in Game 1 of a doubleheader 4-0 before the Renegades dropped the nightcap 7-5.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Ken Waldichuk: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K, 74 pitches (52 strikes). Waldichuk has made six starts in 2021 without allowing a run, and carries a whopping 45:10 strikeout to walk ratio through 24.2 innings. Give this man a promotion

Tampa Tarpons (20-8): Saturday was all about the big inning for the Tarpons. A nine-run fifth in the first game led to a 12-3 win, and Tampa also took the nightcap 7-4 thanks to a six-run fourth.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Austin Wells – 3-for-3, 1 triple, 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 stolen base. Wells posted a three-hit game for the third time in this up-and-down season for the prized rookie
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Randy Vasquez – 4.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 8 K, 69 pitches (49 strikes). After getting shelled his last time out there, the 22-year-old showed tremendous fortitude in his dazzling performance on Saturday
  • Josh Smith: 2-for-4, 1 home run (4), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 stolen base. Though Tampa has had no issues scoring runs, the 2019 second-round pick has established himself as an offensive threat at the top of the order in just nine games
  • Anthony Volpe: 2-for-2, 1 double, 2 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 stolen base. Volpe is heating up at the perfect time and also added to his team-leading stolen base total with his 14th
  • Trevor Hauver: 1-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Jake Sanford: 2-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Juan De Leon: 1-for-3, 1 home run (1), 4 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. De Leon’s first blast of the year was a grand slam that broke the game open as part of the nine-run fifth inning
  • Jhonatan Munoz: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 5 pitches (2 strikes). For recording one out in relief of Vasquez, Munoz got himself a win
  • Zach Kohn: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 24 pitches (13 strikes)
  • Carson Coleman: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 16 pitches (11 strikes)

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Josh Smith – 2-for-4, 2 home runs (6), 3 RBI, 2 runs scored. Smith followed his teammate Volpe, who had a three-homer day in a doubleheader earlier this week, with one of his own. He’s slugging .833 through ten games of a downright incredible full-season ball debut
  • Anthony Volpe: 1-for-3, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Trevor Hauver: 1-for-4, 1 double
  • Elijah Dunham: 2-for-2, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 walk
