Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Tampa 2

The Tarpons swept a doubleheader, Somerset logged a memorable win, and Scranton and Hudson Valley kept right on streaking. There was no shortage of action on Friday night.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (39-43): Things got dicey in the ninth inning, but the RailRiders held on for a 5-3 win as their assault on the .500 mark continues.

  • Star of the Game: Hayden Wesneski – 6 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K, 82 pitches (56 strikes). Wesneski recorded his first quality start since June 14, and has struck out 15 over his last two appearances after slumping a bit towards the end of June
  • Estevan Florial: 1-for-4, 1 home run (11), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Florial, perhaps the hottest hitter in the system, has five doubles and six homers during his nine-game hitting streak. He homered to lead off the game
  • Oswald Peraza: 2-for-5, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 strikeouts, 1 stolen base
  • Josh Breaux: 3-for-4, 1 triple, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Breaux’s first at-bats with Scranton were memorable ones. He reached base his first four times up, including his first Triple-A extra-base hit in the seventh inning
  • Jake Bauers: 1-for-5, 1 home run (5), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Michael Gomez: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K, 14 pitches (6 strikes)
  • Braden Bristo: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 33 pitches (18 strikes)
  • Zach Greene: 0.1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 9 pitches (8 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (49-30): Down 2-0 headed into the bottom of the ninth, the Patriots capitalized on some shoddy defending to take an improbable 3-2 walk-off win over Bowie.

  • Star of the Game: Jeisson Rosario – 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Rosario doubled home Somerset’s first run in the ninth, then came around to score on the game-losing error
  • Elijah Dunham: 2-for-4, 1 run scored
  • Blake Perkins: 1-for-4, 1 stolen base. Perkins hit the fielder’s choice that forced Baysox shortstop Joseph Ortiz into a bad throw, allowing the tying and go-ahead runs to score
  • Luis Medina: 4.2 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 4 K, 89 pitches (58 strikes)
  • Matt Minnick: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 31 pitches (24 strikes)
  • Carson Coleman: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 28 pitches (17 strikes). Coleman got the win for his work in long relief

Hudson Valley Renegades (42-37): The ‘Gades have finally put some breathing room between them and the .500 mark, as they defeated Jersey Shore again by a 6-3 score.

  • Star of the Game: Trey Sweeney – 2-for-3, 1 home run (9), 1 double, 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout. Sweeney’s seven total bases on the night were his most in a game since recording eight on April 12
  • Everson Pereira: 2-for-4, 1 home run (8), 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Pereira has two doubles, two triples and a home run over his four-game hitting streak
  • Beck Way: 6 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 83 pitches (52 strikes). Way got the win to improve to 4-4, and has now posted six straight efforts of at least five innings and no more than three runs allowed
  • Carlos Gomez: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 26 pitches (17 strikes)
  • Nelson L. Alvarez: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 16 pitches (13 strikes). Alvarez got his third save of the year

Tampa Tarpons (37-42): The Mighty Mussels and Tarpons played two, and Tampa took them both, 5-3 and 3-1.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Ben Rice – 2-for-3, 1 home run (2), 2 RBI, 2 runs scored. The 23-year-old catcher hadn’t homered since June 2, and his bomb cut into a 3-0 deficit

  • Roberto Chirinos: 1-for-3, 1 triple, 2 RBI
  • Juan Carela: 6 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 82 pitches (53 strikes). Carela moved to 5-2 with the win and his third quality start out of his last five outings
  • Harold Cortijo: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 19 pitches (12 strikes). Cortijo, who rarely sees action in such high-leverage situations, nailed down his first save of the year

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Richard Fitts – 5.1 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 88 pitches (61 strikes). Last year’s sixth-round draft pick is now 3-6 and has struck out 35 over his last five outings, all stellar ones
  • Jasson Dominguez: 1-for-2, 1 home run (9), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base. Dominguez has 17 steals to go along with those nine homers

Game 2

  • Joel Mendez: 2-for-5, 1 home run (2), 1 double, 2 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base. Mendez has begun to find his power again – he has two doubles and two homers over his last three games
