Josh Maciejewski (Robert M. Pimpsner)


Pinstriped Performances: Thunderstruck

Large swaths of the East Coast endured hellish heat and then violent thunderstorms on Wednesday, putting a damper on the evening’s minor league action. Only Hudson Valley and the FCL Yankees were able to record official results, and even the FCL game was cut short.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (33-13): The RailRiders-WooSox meeting was suspended in the top of the third inning with Worcester leading 2-0. The game will be completed tomorrow.

Somerset Patriots (31-17): The Patriots were rained out in Harrisburg. They’ll hold a doubleheader against the Senators tomorrow.

Josh Breaux (Robert M. Pimpsner/Pinstriped Prospects)

Hudson Valley Renegades (32-17): Sometimes they win pretty and sometimes they win ugly, but they just keep winning. Hudson Valley blew a four-run lead in the ninth inning but went on to win in extra innings 8-7 over Jersey Shore.

  • Star of the Game: Josh Breaux – 2-for-5, 1 home run (7), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Breaux has an eight-game hitting streak and is batting .394 (13 for 33) over that stretch
  • Pitching Star of the Game: Josh Maciejewski – 6 IP, 2 H, 1 R (0 ER), 0 BB, 9 K, 77 pitches (54 strikes). Maciejewski was efficient and dominant and now sports a 34/10 K/BB ratio over 32 innings this year
  • Anthony Seigler: 1-for-4, 1 double, 3 runs scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Brandon Lockridge: 2-for-5, 1 triple, 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 stolen base. Lockridge’s 10th-inning triple scored Seigler for the go-ahead run
  • Elijah Dunham: 2-for-5, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 stolen base
  • Nick Ernst: 1 IP, 4 H, 5 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 40 pitches (21 strikes). A tough night for Ernst, who saw his ERA spike to 5.18
  • Nelson L. Alvarez: 3 IP, 1 H, 1 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 2 K, 40 pitches (27 strikes). Alvarez allowed a run and then put runners on the corners with two outs in the 10th, but recovered to induce a game-ending groundout

Tampa Tarpons (32-15): For the second straight day, Tampa’s matchup with Jupiter was rained out. They’ll play doubleheaders against the Hammerheads later this week.

Yankees outfield prospect Everson Pereira at the plate for the Staten Island Yankees (Robert M. Pimpsner/Pinstriped Prospects)

FCL Yankees (2-1): A positive day for the baby Yanks ended on a scary note as lightning struck the playing field. The game was called, but it was the seventh inning so the scoreline was official, with the Yanks beating the Phillies 11-3.

  • Star of the Game: Everson Pereira – 3-for-4, 1 home run (1), 2 doubles, 3 RBI, 3 runs scored. The 20-year-old Pereira hit just .171 with Staten Island two years ago, but made a statement early this season with a career performance. His first-inning home run, which scored Jasson Dominguez, gave the Yanks an early 2-0 lead
  • Jasson Dominguez: 0-for-2, 2 walks, 3 runs scored, 1 strikeout. Dominguez is still looking for his first pro hit, but he has had no trouble getting on base thus far
  • Ryder Green: 1-for-1, 2 walks, 2 runs scored
  • Raimfer Salinas: 0-for-3, 1 RBI, 2 strikeouts
  • Blane Abeyta: 3 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
  • Yon Castro: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 2 K. Castro picked up his second GCL/FCL win with his scoreless frames
  • Starling Perez: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
