Pinstriped Performances: Tarpons Run Wild, Scranton Wins Again

Tarpon Thunder returned to George M. Steinbrenner Field after a dry spell, while the RailRiders found some more comeback magic. Hudson Valley was blown out in Brooklyn and Somerset sweat through yet another close one.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (11-3): These RailRiders don’t blow many teams out, but they just keep winning games. They came from behind on Wednesday to defeat reeling Rochester 3-2.

  • Star of the Game: Cristian Perez – 1-for-2, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout. The 22-year-old Perez, who came over from the Royals system in the Chance Adams trade of December 2019, got Scranton on the board with a solo home run in the third inning. He made the jump straight from High-A six days ago
  • Thomas Milone: 1-for-4, 2 RBI, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. Milone drove in the tying run with a bases-loaded walk in the third, and the go-ahead run with a clutch two-out single in the seventh
  • Estevan Florial: 0-for-4, 3 strikeouts
  • Armando Alvarez: 1-for-5, 1 double
  • Nick Green: 4 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 5 BB, 3 K, 63 pitches (35 strikes)
  • Kyle Barraclough: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 25 pitches (17 strikes). Barraclough picked up his second win of the season
  • Adam Warren: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 0 K, 19 pitches (8 strikes)
  • Nick Goody: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 16 pitches (11 strikes)
  • Luis García: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 7 pitches (5 strikes). García’s save was his fourth of the year, which leads the Yankees system

Somerset Patriots (9-5): The Patriots recovered from a late blown lead to win 6-4 over Hartford in 10 innings.

  • Star of the Game: Dermis Garcia – 1-for-5, 1 home run (4), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. All four of Garcia’s home runs have come in the last week. He’s carrying a six-game hitting streak following his two-run home run in the first inning
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Stephen Ridings – 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K, 24 pitches (19 strikes).  What a find the journeyman right-hander has been for Somerset. He has not given up an earned run in five appearances out of the bullpen, and locked down the ninth and tenth innings on Wednesday
  • Donny Sands: 2-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Matt Pita: 2-for-4, 2 doubles, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout
  • Michael Beltre: 1-for-4, 1 double, 3 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Isiah Gilliam: 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout. Gilliam’s single in the tenth inning scored the go-ahead run
  • Janson Junk: 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K, 64 pitches (38 strikes). Junk has been fantastic in three starts, giving up just one earned run, racking up 10 strikeouts, and holding opposing hitters to a .192 batting average
  • JP Sears: 2.2 IP, 2 H, 3 ER, 5 BB, 4 K, 62 pitches (34 strikes)
  • Michael Gomez: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 28 pitches (16 strikes)

Ezequiel Duran (Robert M. Pimpsner/Pinstriped Prospects)

Hudson Valley Renegades (7-7): On to the next one. The Renegades were curb stomped by the Cyclones 14-0, and only seven of the runs were earned thanks to four errors.

  • Star of the Game: Ezequiel Duran – 3-for-5, 1 triple. Duran had more than half of the Renegades’ entire offensive output with his three hits
  • Pablo Olivares: 2-for-4. Olivares and Duran were the only Renegades to hit safely on Wednesday
  • Jhony Brito: 4.2 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 68 pitches (48 strikes)
  • Charlie Ruegger: 1.1 IP, 4 H, 5 R (0 ER), 0 BB, 1 K, 30 pitches (21 strikes). Poor Ruegger was truly hung out to dry by his defense
  • Nick Ernst: 0.2 IP, 3 H, 6 R (4 ER), 3 BB, 2 K, 32 pitches (16 strikes)
  • Tanner Myatt: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 17 pitches (11 strikes)

Andres Chaparro fielding (John Brophy/Pinstriped Prospects)

Tampa Tarpons (10-4): The show is back! With 12 hits on the night, Tampa easily took care of Fort Myers, 15-1.

  • Star of the Game: Andres Chaparro – 2-for-5, 2 doubles, 4 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk. Chaparro picked up his seventh and eighth doubles of the year. He leads the team in that category
  • Jake Sanford: 2-for-4, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk
  • Trevor Hauver: 2-for-2, 1 double, 1 RBI, 3 runs scored, 3 walks. Hauver’s OBP is still over .500 after 14 games
  • Anthony Volpe: 1-for-5, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Austin Wells: 0-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Elijah Dunham: 2-for-4, 1 double, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored
  • Matt Sauer: 4 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 4 K, 68 pitches (40 strikes)
  • Trevor Holloway: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 22 pitches (16 strikes). Wednesday’s winning pitcher is having a breakout rookie season out of the pen, with 19 strikeouts in 10 innings
  • Michael Giacone: 2.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 4 K, 52 pitches (28 strikes)
  • Clay Aguilar: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 5 pitches (3 strikes)
