Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Suddenly Second Best

With the Yanks’ Double-A outfit having spent most of the season on cruise control, it’s surprising to look at the standings and see a team that’s not the Patriots leading the pack. The Renegades peeked their heads back above the waterline, and the only active rookie league team got back to winning ways.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (27-41): Offense was a challenge yet again as the RailRiders fell in Toledo, 4-3.

  • Star of the Game: Jhony Brito – 6.2 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 84 pitches (57 strikes). If Brito hasn’t hit breakout status yet, he’s pretty darn close – he’s holding opposing Triple-A hitters to a measly .207 batting average over four starts
  • Oswald Peraza: 1-for-5, 1 RBI, 1 run scored
  • Derek Dietrich: 1-for-4, 1 triple, 1 RBI, 2 strikeouts
  • Rob Brantly: 3-for-3, 1 double, 1 walk
  • Braden Bristo: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 23 pitches (15 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (41-24): After dramatically tying the game in the bottom of the eighth, things unraveled quickly for the Patriots in extras en route to a 9-5 loss to Hartford that knocked them out of first place.

  • Star of the Game: Brandon Lockridge – 1-for-4, 1 home run (5), 2 RBI, 2 runs scored. Lockridge went deep in the second and also came around to score the tying run in the eighth
  • Elijah Dunham: 2-for-5, 1 double, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts, 1 stolen base
  • Jeisson Rosario: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 walk
  • Jesus Bastidas: 1-for-5, 1 triple, 2 runs scored
  • Mickey Gasper: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 walk. Gasper drove in Lockridge to knot the game at five
  • Michael Beltre: 1-for-4, 1 triple, 2 RBI, 2 strikeouts
  • Mitch Spence: 5 IP, 5 H, 3 R (2 ER), 3 BB, 4 K, 95 pitches (60 strikes)

  • Carson Coleman: 1.2 IP, 3 H, 4 R (3 ER), 0 BB, 2 K, 37 pitches (29 strikes). Coleman gave up more runs in this one appearance than he had allowed in the entire rest of the season combined
  • Emmanuel Ramirez: 0.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 6 pitches (3 strikes)

Matt Sauer (John Brophy/Pinstriped Prospects)

Hudson Valley Renegades (33-32): The Dash mounted a fierce rally in the ninth, but the ‘Gades escaped victorious by a 4-3 score to put them back above .500.

  • Star of the Game: Matt Sauer – 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 6 K, 91 pitches (53 strikes). After a slip-up last time out, Sauer returned to his winning ways with his third quality start in his last four outings
  • Everson Pereira: 2-for-5, 1 triple, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Tyler Hardman: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Carlos Narvaez: 2-for-4, 1 home run (6), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. The 23-year-old catcher has homered five times in his last five games
  • Aldenis Sanchez: 3-for-5, 1 stolen base
  • Nelson L. Alvarez: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 26 pitches (15 strikes)
  • Ryan Miller: 1 IP, 1 H, 3 R (2 ER), 2 BB, 1 K, 26 pitches (12 strikes)

Grant Richardson hits a double (John Brophy/Pinstriped Prospects)

Tampa Tarpons (27-38): They scored a run in the eighth to take the Threshers to extras, but the Tarpons couldn’t find one more push and lost in 10 innings 4-3.

  • Star of the Game: Grant Richardson – 1-for-4, 1 home run (5), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Richardson may be the hottest hitter in the system right now – he’s slashing .364/.440/.705 with four home runs this month

  • Antonio Gomez: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 strikeout
  • Anthony Garcia: 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts

  • Yon Castro: 2 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, 50 pitches (24 strikes). Perhaps Castro needed some time to warm back up to a bullpen role – he’s started all of the 10 other games in which he’s appeared this year
  • Gerrit van Zijll: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 32 pitches (19 strikes)
  • Ryan Anderson: 3 IP, 2 H, 1 R (0 ER), 0 BB, 3 K, 37 pitches (26 strikes). Anderson deserved far better than the loss he took

DSL Yankees (4-9): The Yanks finally got back in the win column by thumping Diamondbacks Black, 14-8.

  • Star of the Game: Juan Matheus – 2-for-3, 1 triple, 1 double, 3 RBI, 3 runs scored, 2 walks. The rookie, just recently 18 years old, is slugging .606 in his pro career
