Pinstriped Performances: Top Of The East

The RailRiders have done it: a season that looked completely lost in mid-June has turned all the way around, and they’d be going to the playoffs if the season ended today.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (75-61): Great pitching and some timely hits led Scranton over Worcester 4-1, and combined with Durham’s loss, they moved into first place in the division.

  • Star of the Game: Mitch Spence – 6 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 88 pitches (64 strikes). Spence moved to 3-2 with the win, and the 2019 10th-rounder has put together two consecutive quality starts
  • Anthony Volpe: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 stolen base
  • Josh Breaux: 2-for-4, 1 triple, 1 run scored
  • Ronald Guzman: 1-for-4, 1 home run (13), 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Guzman put the RailRiders up 3-1 with a three-run shot in the fourth inning
  • Michael Gomez: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 15 pitches (10 strikes)
  • Zack Britton: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 11 pitches (8 strikes). Britton worked an easy eighth as he continues his rehab
  • Tyler Duffey: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 19 pitches (10 strikes). Duffey locked down his first save in the Yankees organization

Somerset Patriots (81-51): Harrison Bader homered in a rehab game and the offense provided some fireworks, but those were the only highlights as the Patriots were thrashed by Portland, 12-7.

  • Star of the Game: Jeisson Rosario – 2-for-4, 1 home run (10), 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Rosario reached double-digit homers on the year with a two-run shot in the fourth
  • Harrison Bader: 2-for-4, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored. Bader crushed one to deep left field in his third rehab appearance
  • Austin Wells: 2-for-4, 1 home run (12), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base. Wells added a garbage-time solo home run with two outs in the ninth
  • Trey Sweeney: 1-for-4, 1 home run (2), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base. Sweeney has put together a .795 OPS in his time at Double-A
  • Randy Vasquez: 2.2 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 73 pitches (47 strikes). Vasquez fell to 2-7
