Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Sunday May 13th, 2018

Since Single-A Advanced Tampa had the day off on Sunday, only four teams in the New York Yankees organization were in action. Those teams combined for a 3-1 record with Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre taking the lone loss. While one Yankees superstar had a four-hit game, there was another player in the organization who accomplished the same feat. Learn more about that player and more in the key performances of the day around the organization:

New York Yankees (MLB): The Yankees (28-12) took the rubber game of their three-game series against the Oakland Athletics, 6-2.

  • Giancarlo Stanton had a great game at the plate. He went 4-for-4 with three RBIs (24,25,26) and he hit a solo home run in the bottom of the fifth (10).
  • Aaron Hicks was 1-for-4 at the plate with a stolen base (5) and he drove in two runs (14,15) with a single in the first and a groundout in the seventh.
  • Aaron Judge was 2-for-4 with two runs scored, a walk, and he had an RBI single in the eighth (35). He has at least one hit and one RBI in his last seven games.
  • Luis Severino (6-1) had another quality outing on the mound. In six innings, he gave up one run on five hits, struck out seven, and walked two on 106 pitches (70 strikes) in the win. He is now 4-0 in his last six starts.
  • Chad Green threw a 1-2-3 seventh inning (one strikeout) and Dellin Betances threw a scoreless eighth (two strikeouts, one walk).

Scranton Wilkes-Barre Railriders (Triple-A): The Railriders (16-19) had their pitchers combine for 14 strikeouts in a 3-1 loss to the Rochester Red Wings.

  • Clint Frazier provided the lone offense of the day for Scranton. He went 3-for-5 and he hit a solo home run in the bottom of the third (3).
  • Brandon Drury (1-for-4) had the other extra-base hit of the afternoon when he hit a double in the same inning.
  • Daniel Camarena (2-2) took the loss in this game. He went 5.1 innings, gave up three runs on four hits, struck out eight (season-high) and walked three on 93 pitches (61 strikes).
  • Brady Lail followed him up by throwing 1.2 perfect innings and striking out two.
  • Raynel Espinal gave up a hit in the ninth. However, he struck out the other three batters.

Trenton Thunder (Double-A): The Thunder (22-13) got a split of their four-game series against the Richmond Flying Squirrels with a 3-2 win.

  • Chris Gittens (1-for-3, walk) got the scoring started with a two-run home run (3) in the top of the first. He now has 17 RBIs on the season.
  • Jhalan Jackson (2-for-4) had an RBI single in the first to put Trenton ahead 3-0 (14).
  • Brian Keller (3-2) went seven innings, gave up two runs on four hits, struck out six batters, and walked two on 97 pitches (63 strikes) in the win. He is 3-0 in his last four starts.
  • Stephen Tarpley threw a perfect eighth inning (struck out two).
  • Jordan Foley gave up a hit and walked a batter in the ninth. However, he did earn his fifth save of the season.

Charleston Riverdogs (Single-A): The Riverdogs (17-19) used their offense to snap their four-game losing streak as they beat the Hagerstown Suns, 12-9.

  • Dom Thompson-Williams had a great day in Hagerstown. He went 4-for-6 with three runs scored and drove in five runs (1,2,3,4,5). Out of those four hits, two of them were doubles and two of them were home runs (1,2) (solo shot in the first, two-run home run in the fifth).
  • Wilkerman Garcia was 2-for-5 out of the leadoff spot with a double and two RBIs (12,13).
  • Oswaldo Cabrera (1-for-4, walk) hit a two-run home run in the third (2). He has hit a home run in two straight games.
  • Steven Sensley was 3-for-4 with a run scored and a walk.
  • Rony Garcia (1-2) took advantage of the run support. In five innings, he gave up five runs (three earned) on five hits, struck out three, and walked two on 82 pitches (50 strikes).
  • Chad Martin got out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth and picked up his first save. He threw 1.2 hitless innings and struck out two. He has yet to allow a run this season in 15.2 innings (seven games).
