Pinstriped Performances: Statement From Semple, Somerset; Duran Cycle

The Patriots got back on track in a big way, while the red-hot Ezequiel Duran hung some more crooked numbers on the scorecard. And speaking of crooked numbers, one of the two DSL teams took part in a slugfest for the ages.

Armando Alvarez (Matt Bufano)

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (43-22): Perhaps some no-hitter hangover was involved in this one, as the RailRiders were soundly beaten by Rochester 9-0.

  • Star of the Game: Armando Alvarez: 2-for-4, 2 doubles. Alvarez managed two of the three Scranton hits on the night
  • Hoy Jun Park: 0-for-4, 2 strikeouts. Park returns after a quick cameo and his major-league debut in New York
  • Thomas Milone: 1-for-4, 2 strikeouts
  • Matt Krook: 5 IP, 9 H, 7 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 80 pitches (51 strikes)
  • Brian Keller: 1 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 40 pitches (24 strikes)
  • Nick Green: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 30 pitches (24 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (41-27): The Patriots cracked five home runs and rode a brilliant outing from Shawn Semple to emphatically stop a five-game skid, beating Altoona 10-0.

  • Star of the Game: Shawn Semple – 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 9 K, 86 pitches (57 strikes). Semple returned to Double-A after proving he was no match for High-A hitters, and he looks like he belongs at this level
  • Hitting Star of the Game: Brandon Lockridge – 3-for-5, 2 home runs (5), 4 RBI, 2 runs scored. Lockridge has looked very comfortable at this level with a .378 batting average and 1.206 OPS
  • Hitting Star of the Game: Jason Lopez – 3-for-3, 2 home runs (3), 5 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk. Lopez, in line for more playing time now that Donny Sands is in Scranton, had not gone deep since June 19
  • Oswaldo Cabrera: 1-for-5, 1 home run (13), 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Cabrera added a solo shot to complete the set of five dingers
  • Kevin Gadea: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 20 pitches (14 strikes)
  • Ron Marinacco: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 12 pitches (10 strikes)

Hudson Valley Renegades (46-23): The ‘Gades jumped ahead in the 11th and added to their lead on Duran’s cycle-completing triple, then held off an Aberdeen rally in the bottom of the inning to escape with a 10-9 win.

  • Star of the Game: Ezequiel Duran – 4-for-5, 1 home run (12), 1 triple, 1 double, 3 RBI, 4 runs scored, 1 walk. Duran, slugging .500 in July, recorded a cycle and drove in a couple of key insurance runs with his triple in extra innings
  • Anthony Seigler: 2-for-6, 1 triple, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Josh Breaux: 1-for-6, 1 home run (15), 3 RBI, 1 run scored. Breaux added to his team-leading homer total
  • Jake Sanford: 2-for-5, 1 double, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Kyle MacDonald: 2-for-5, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. MacDonald’s run-scoring single broke the 6-6 tie in the 11th
  • Randy Vasquez: 5.2 IP, 7 H, 5 R (4 ER), 2 BB, 8 K, 90 pitches (59 strikes). Vasquez, a breakout star for Tampa this season, made his High-A debut and while not perfect, showcased flashes of the stuff that allowed him to dominate down in Florida
  • Trevor Holloway: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 36 pitches (24 strikes)
  • Derek Craft: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K, 36 pitches (20 strikes)
  • Nelson L. Alvarez: 1 IP, 1 H, 3 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 1 K, 27 pitches (14 strikes). Alvarez and his fielders had ‘Gades fans sweating through a nervy 11th, thanks to a passed ball, a walk, a hit batsman, and an error. But he finally shut the door with the tying run just 90 feet away

Tampa Tarpons (46-22): Three more extra-base hits from the dazzling Everson Pereira was not enough as the Tarpons crashed to a 9-3 defeat to Clearwater.

  • Star of the Game: Everson Pereira – 3-for-4, 3 doubles, 2 RBI, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Pereira has six doubles, a triple, and three homers for a .429/.500/.735 slash line with Tampa
  • Jasson Dominguez: 1-for-5, 2 strikeouts
  • Evan Alexander: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Beck Way: 2 IP, 2 H, 3 ER, 6 BB, 4 K, 60 pitches (26 strikes). Ten appearances into his professional career, Way still can’t shake these command issues. He has nearly as many walks as innings pitched – 23 to 25.1
  • Blane Abeyta: 3.2 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 71 pitches (46 strikes)
  • Kenlly Montas: 1 IP, 1 H, 5 ER, 3 BB, 1 K, 38 pitches (14 strikes). Montas, a 25-year-old who’s been spinning his wheels at the rookie levels the last five years, made his full-season debut
  • Ryan Anderson: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K, 42 pitches (26 strikes)

FCL Yankees (13-4): Another home run from Anthony Garcia and another Yanks win, 5-4 over the Blue Jays, was overshadowed by an apparent injury to a former top prospect making a comeback.

  • Star of the Game: Anthony Garcia – 1-for-3, 1 home run (4), 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Garcia struck a blow in the fourth, hitting a three-run shot for his fourth of the season
  • Kevin Alcantara: 2-for-4, 1 strikeout
  • Raimfer Salinas: 2-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Freicer Perez: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K. Perez was dealing, but then he was abruptly yanked from the game in the second inning with what looked to be a lower-leg injury
  • Yon Castro: 2.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K
  • Denny Larrondo: 1 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 0 K
  • Juan Panacual: 3 IP, 0 H, 1 R (0 ER), 3 BB, 2 K. Panacual got the win

DSL Yankees 1 (3-5): The Nationals silenced the Yankee bats in a 2-0 defeat for the baby Bombers.

  • Star of the Game: Yordi Pichardo – 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K. The 19-year-old, a 2019 signee, has allowed one hit and no runs through his first two professional appearances
  • Hans Montero: 1-for-4, 1 strikeout
  • Fidel Montero: 1-for-3, 1 walk
  • Omar Martinez: 1-for-4, 1 strikeout
  • Luis Serna: 2.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 5 K
  • Geralmi Santana: 3.1 IP, 0 H, 1 R (0 ER), 2 BB, 2 K

DSL Yankees 2 (5-3): The Yanks and Mariners spent six hours and 35 minutes on the field on Thursday, and when the dust settled on a truly wild afternoon that saw 43 runs on the board, the Yanks were on the short end of a 22-21 score.

  • Star of the Game: Daury Arias – 3-for-7, 1 home run (2), 2 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 walk. Somehow, the Yanks only managed two extra-base hits in this game, and Arias hit one of them over the wall for a solo homer
  • Dayro Perez: 2-for-7, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Mauro Bonifacio: 2-for-7, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 3 strikeouts

  • Luis Urbano: 1.1 IP, 3 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 1 K
  • Juan Espana: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 7 R (3 ER), 1 BB, 0 K
  • Ricardo Alfaro: 0.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 0 K
