Pinstriped Performances: Star On The Rise

Oswald Peraza made his Double-A debut following his promotion from Hudson Valley. Rain spoiled the night for his former teammates, while Scranton and Tampa were also disrupted by poor weather.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (20-9): The RailRiders had to wait out the weather for nearly two hours to get going against Buffalo in Trenton, and then had to pause once again because the sprinklers inadvertently came on in the middle of the game. Through it all, they battled back from a 5-0 deficit to win 7-5.

  • Star of the Game: Derek Dietrich – 2-for-4, 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Dietrich’s two-run single in the eighth put the RailRiders in front
  • Estevan Florial: 0-for-5, 2 strikeouts. Florial is hitting just .154 at Triple-A
  • Hoy Jun Park: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Trey Amburgey: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Robinson Chirinos: 1-for-1, 1 home run (3), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 3 walks
  • Andrew Velazquez: 1-for-3, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Zack Britton: 0.1 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 24 pitches (13 strikes). An ugly rehab for Britton, who issued a walk and a strikeout and then gave up three straight hits, the last of which cleared the wall
  • Adam Warren: 2.2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 40 pitches (23 strikes)
  • Nick Nelson: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 51 pitches (29 strikes)
  • Braden Bristo: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 9 pitches (7 strikes). Bristo’s efficient seventh earned him the win
  • Trevor Lane: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K, 17 pitches (11 strikes)
  • Luis García: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 17 pitches (11 strikes). García recorded his ninth save

Somerset Patriots (20-10): Two early home runs propelled Erie into a lead they never lost, as Somerset suffered an 8-2 defeat to open the week on the road.

  • Star of the Game: Dermis Garcia – 1-for-3, 1 home run (11), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. He’s not hitting for average, but who cares? Garcia’s 11 home runs lead the system and he’s got four in the month of June
  • Oswald Peraza: 0-for-4. Peraza tore up High-A but will certainly face an adjustment period at the plate. He did make a nifty play at short
  • Donny Sands: 2-for-4, 1 run scored
  • Zack Zehner: 2-for-3, 1 double
  • Glenn Otto: 6.2 IP, 6 H, 6 ER, 1 BB, 10 K, 92 pitches (65 strikes). The K’s were there as usual, but Otto was roughed up in allowing two home runs and his ERA ballooned to 4.50
  • Carlos Espinal: 1.2 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 28 pitches (20 strikes)

Hudson Valley Renegades (15-12): The Renegades’ week in Brooklyn will have to wait, as the first matchup was postponed. HV and the rival Cyclones will begin their series with a doubleheader tomorrow.

Tampa Tarpons (22-9): The Tarpons’ pitching was on point, but they couldn’t muster up any offense in a rain-delayed, walk-off 2-1 loss in Clearwater.

  • Star of the Game: Edgar Barclay – 3.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K, 52 pitches (32 strikes). Barclay has been very good in six out of his eight outings this year, and carries a solid 2.79 ERA, .108 batting average against, and 27 strikeouts against just nine walks in 19.1 innings
  • Anthony Volpe: 1-for-3, 1 walk
  • Austin Wells: 0-for-4, 2 strikeouts
  • Trevor Hauver: 1-for-3, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. Hauver has an 11-game on-base streak, though his average has dipped below .300 after the white-hot start
  • Carlos Narvaez: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Chad Bell: 2-for-4, 1 triple, 1 strikeout
  • Yoendrys Gómez: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 42 pitches (22 strikes)
  • Nelvin Correa: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K, 20 pitches (14 strikes)
  • Clay Aguilar: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K, 34 pitches (24 strikes)
  • Carson Coleman: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 27 pitches (14 strikes). Coleman gave up the walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth
