Pinstriped Performances: The Newcomers Make Noise

The full-season affiliates went a perfect 4-0 and one out of two DSL teams added a win, and Tuesday night was all about some recently-promoted young stars. Following his quick call-up to Tampa, Jasson Dominguez recorded two hits, one for extra bases, while hitting leadoff for the victorious Tarpons.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (38-20): A key seventh-inning hit and 4.1 innings of scoreless ball from the bullpen helped Scranton score a 5-2 win at Worcester.

  • Star of the Game: Rob Brantly – 1-for-4, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. Brantly’s two-run single with two outs in the seventh inning put Scranton ahead for good
  • Hoy Jun Park: 1-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Trey Amburgey: 1-for-5, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Greg Allen: 2-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Brody Koerner: 4.2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 66 pitches (42 strikes)
  • Trevor Lane: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 18 pitches (11 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (39-21): Ken Waldichuk’s dominance has almost become routine, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t stop to appreciate it. The lefty stud made another shining start and led Somerset to a 3-2 win over Richmond.

  • Star of the Game: Ken Waldichuk – 6.1 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 11 K, 97 pitches (63 strikes). Waldichuk has 42 strikeouts in 26.1 innings with Somerset, and 97 strikeouts in 50 total innings across High-A and Double-A this season. He’s turning heads the way Deivi García was two years ago
  • Oswald Peraza: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored. Peraza isn’t necessarily commanding the headlines the way other middle infielders in the system are, but he’s hitting a rock-solid .283 at this level
  • Brandon Lockridge: 1-for-4, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Lockridge went yard in his Double-A debut
  • Michael Beltre: 2-for-3, 1 triple, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Elvis Peguero: 2.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K, 42 pitches (27 strikes)

James Nelson (Robert M Pimpsner)

Hudson Valley Renegades (40-20): Anthony Volpe made his much-hyped High-A debut and every ‘Gades starter recorded at least one hit in a 9-4 beatdown of the Blue Rocks.

  • Star of the Game: James Nelson – 2-for-5, 1 home run (5), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Nelson’s blast in the fourth gave HV a 3-1 lead

  • Anthony Volpe: 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 walk. Volpe hit leadoff in his first game. He walked to lead off the contest and hit a single his next time up
  • Ezequiel Duran: 2-for-4, 1 double, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk
  • Josh Breaux: 1-for-5, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 strikeouts

Tampa Tarpons (41-18): The Tarpons jumped ahead with one run in the seventh and three more in the eighth to beat Lakeland 6-2 behind a dazzling debut for Jasson Dominguez.

  • Star of the Game: Jasson Dominguez – 2-for-4, 1 double, 2 RBI. Dominguez took the first pitch he saw in the third inning to right field for a run-scoring double. Hard to envision a much better debut for the teenage phenom
  • Everson Pereira: 1-for-3, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Andres Chaparro: 1-for-3, 1 home run (7), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Chaparro’s solo blast put Tampa ahead in the seventh
  • Aldenis Sanchez: 2-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Sanchez came over from Tampa Bay as the player to be named later in the Mike Ford trade
  • Yoendrys Gómez: 4 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 60 pitches (40 strikes)
  • Anderson Munoz: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 46 pitches (26 strikes)

DSL Yankees 1 (1-1): The Yanks lost to the Twins 9-6.

  • Star of the Game: Omar Martinez – 1-for-3, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored. The 20-year-old catcher signed in 2018 and hit .237 in the GCL in 2019

  • Enger Castellano: 1-for-3, 1 strikeout
