Pinstriped Performances: Split Squads

Friday should’ve seen eight games across the Yankees system, but only five were able to go forward thanks to another day of bad weather. Tampa and Somerset went 1-for-2 in their doubleheaders, while Scranton, the FCL Yanks, and one out of two Renegades contests were all banged along with the big-league team’s Subway Series opener.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (34-14): The scheduled matchup between Scranton and Worcester was postponed. A makeup date has not been announced.

Somerset Patriots (33-18): Somerset beat up on Harrisburg 7-0 in the doubleheader’s first game, then fell 5-2 in the second effort.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Oswaldo Cabrera – 3-for-4, 1 home run (7), 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout. Cabrera drove in Oswald Peraza with an RBI single in the sixth and then hit a two-run homer an inning later
  • Oswald Peraza: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Dermis Garcia: 1-for-4, 1 home run (14), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Garcia’s home run total continues to pace the system. His 14th of the year traveled a reported 467 feet
  • Thomas Milone: 1-for-2, 1 double, 3 RBI. Milone’s sixth inning double scored two runs and broke the game open
  • JP Sears: 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K, 59 pitches (40 strikes)
  • Janson Junk: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 32 pitches (23 strikes). Sears and Junk combined to allow just four Harrisburg hits and no runs

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Isiah Gilliam: 1-for-3, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Gilliam provided Somerset’s entire offensive output with a two-run single to left in the fourth inning
  • Oswald Peraza: 0-for-4, 1 strikeout
  • Thomas Milone: 1-for-2, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Jason Lopez: 2-for-2, 1 walk

  • Kevin Gadea: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 23 pitches (15 strikes)

Pablo Olivares (Mark LoMoglio / Tampa Tarpons)

Hudson Valley Renegades (32-18): Jersey Shore rode a five-run eighth inning to an 8-2 beatdown of the Renegades, while the former half of the scheduled doubleheader was pushed back yet again.

  • Star of the Game: Kyle MacDonald – 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored. MacDonald drove in Pablo Olivares with a one-out double in the fifth
  • Josh Smith: 0-for-2, 2 walks, 1 strikeout
  • Anthony Seigler: 0-for-4, 3 strikeouts
  • Pablo Olivares: 1-for-4, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Reid Anderson: 3.2 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 63 pitches (42 strikes). Anderson has a 4.35 ERA with Hudson Valley following his demotion last month
  • Barrett Loseke: 3.2 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 56 pitches (37 strikes)

Jake Sanford (John Brophy/Pinstriped Prospects)

Tampa Tarpons (34-16): Tampa rolled in the first game against Jupiter 6-0 thanks to a brilliant outing from Matt Sauer, but then dropped the nightcap 3-1.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Matt Sauer – 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 10 K, 85 pitches (59 strikes). This was actually a relief outing for Sauer after Clay Aguilar pitched the first. We’ll see if this opener strategy becomes a trend for his apperances
  • Hitting Star of the Game: Jake Sanford – 3-for-4, 1 home run (5), 5 RBI, 1 run scored. Sanford almost singlehandedly carried the Tampa offense to victory thanks to his three-run homer in the first inning and his two-run double in the fourth
  • Anthony Volpe: 0-for-0, 1 run scored, 3 walks
  • Trevor Hauver: 1-for-4, 1 run scored, 3 strikeouts
  • Jesus Bastidas: 1-for-2, 1 home run (3), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored. Bastidas’ solo home run gave Tampa a 4-0 lead
  • Clay Aguilar: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 14 pitches (8 strikes)

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Randy Vasquez – 4.2 IP, 4 H, 1 R (0 ER), 0 BB, 7 K, 84 pitches (55 strikes). Vasquez deserves better than his 1-3 record as he boasts a 2.77 ERA this year
  • Anthony Volpe: 0-for-2, 2 walks, 1 strikeout. No hits, but five total walks on the day for Volpe
  • Trevor Hauver: 2-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Carson Coleman: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 2 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 3 K, 35 pitches (19 strikes)
  • Tanner Myatt: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 11 pitches (7 strikes)

FCL Yankees (2-1): The Yanks’ matchup against Tigers West was postponed and will be made up on July 8.
