Pinstriped Performances: The Postseason Begins

Somerset is a win away from the Eastern League Championship Series following an easy night in Portland. Scranton is getting no help from Norfolk, but they continue to keep pace.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (78-63): A seventh-inning grand slam reversed a 3-0 deficit and gave the RailRiders a 4-3 win over Lehigh Valley, matching Durham’s victory against the Tides.

  • Star of the Game: Ronald Guzman – 1-for-4, 1 home run (15), 4 RBI, 1 run scored. Guzman has impressed in Triple-A, if not at the big-league level, and he singlehandedly powered Scranton to a win in this one
  • Anthony Volpe: 0-for-4, 2 strikeouts
  • Ben Rortvedt: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Ryan LaMarre: 1-for-2, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 1 stolen base
  • Mitch Spence: 5 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 68 pitches (43 strikes). Spence has struck out 19 and walked just two over his last three starts, spanning 17 innings
  • Chasen Shreve: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 12 pitches (9 strikes). Shreve’s last win as a member of the Yankees organization came on April 6, 2018
  • Miguel Castro: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 10 pitches (8 strikes)
  • Zack Britton: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 4 pitches (4 strikes)
  • Jimmy Cordero: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 16 pitches (8 strikes). Three saves on the year now for Cordero

Somerset Patriots: After going down 3-0 in the opening game of the Division Series, the Patriots put up eight runs in the fourth to pull away for a 9-4 win over the Sea Dogs. They’ll head home to try to clinch the series on Thursday.

  • Star of the Game: Elijah Dunham – 4-for-5, 2 RBI, 1 strikeout. Dunham singled home the last two runs of the eight-run outburst in the fourth
  • Trey Sweeney: 2-for-4, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Austin Wells: 1-for-5, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 3 strikeouts
  • Jesus Bastidas: 3-for-4, 1 run scored
  • Randy Vasquez: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 85 pitches (55 strikes). After allowing back-to-back home runs in the second inning, Vasquez settled down and cruised the rest of the way to secure the win
  • Matt Minnick: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 4 pitches (2 strikes)
  • Aaron McGarity: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 30 pitches (19 strikes)
  • Carlos Espinal: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K, 10 pitches (3 strikes). Espinal walked the first batter he faced after relieving McGarity, but wriggled out of the jam thanks to a beautiful over-the-shoulder running catch by Sweeney on a pop-up to shallow left
  • Carson Coleman: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 15 pitches (12 strikes)
