Pinstriped Performances: The Home Stretch

As Double-A, High-A and Low-A conclude the regular season, Somerset has some work to do, and Hudson Valley now has a mountain to climb.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (65-47): There’s no Triple-A postseason this year, but the RailRiders will still look to finish strong in their last three series. They began this week’s with a 4-2 win over Lehigh Valley.

  • Star of the Game: Estevan Florial – 2-for-5, 1 home run (11), 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 3 strikeouts. If big-league rosters still expanded to 40, Florial would likely be in New York right now; instead, he’ll have to settle for hitting bombs in Scranton

  • Ron Marinaccio: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 28 pitches (14 strikes). Marinaccio recorded his first save with Scranton

Somerset Patriots (69-45): The Patriots are now tied with Bowie for the second-best record in the league after an 8-6 defeat at the hands of Akron. They have it all to play for moving forward.

  • Brandon Lockridge: 2-for-5, 1 home run (9), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout. Lockridge is a home run away from double-digit home runs and steals in his partial season at Double-A

  • Luis Medina: 5 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 90 pitches (49 strikes). Medina’s posted a 3.86 ERA with Somerset

Hudson Valley Renegades (68-47): After being trounced by Greensboro 10-1, the task for the rest of the week is simple: win every remaining game, and the ‘Gades go to the playoffs. Lose even one of them, and the season is over.

  • Star of the Game: Elijah Dunham – 1-for-2, 1 home run (9), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks. Dunham put the ‘Gades up 1-0 in the second with a solo shot, and it was all downhill from there
