Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Josh Breaux had the first multi-home run game of his career in Charleston’s win on Tuesday (Robert M Pimpsner/Pinstriped Prospects)

On the final night of April, two different players in the New York Yankees organization had multi-home run games. Meanwhile, a pair of major leaguers began their rehab assignments down in Tampa. Find out how those players did and more in our Pinstriped Performances and be sure to vote for the final Pinstriped Performer of the Night this month:

Scranton Wilkes-Barre Railriders (Triple-A): The Railriders (10-12) lost their game against the Rochester Red Wings, 11-2.

Gosuke Katoh went 2-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base, and an RBI single in the bottom of the second (13). He’s hitting .355 on the season. (Robert M Pimpsner/Pinstriped Prospects)

  • Brad Miller was 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI double in the eighth (5).
  • Ryan McBroom and Matt Lipka both went 2-for-4 with a double. It was McBroom’s third double in the last two games.
  • It was a rough night on the mound for Jonathan Loaisiga (0-2). He allowed six runs on eight hits, struck out four, and walked one over five innings of work in a loss. 61 of his 96 pitches were for strikes.
  • J.P. Feyereisen came in after Loaisiga. He allowed two runs on one hit, struck out three, and walked two over 1.2 innings.

  • It was the Chris Gittens show in Trenton as he provided the offense. He was 2-for-3 with a pair of home runs (5,6) and drove in three runs (17,18,19).  He hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the first and a solo shot in the sixth.  Our own Austin Petolillo had more on Gittens’ multi-home run night:

  • Jeff Hendrix was 2-for-3 with a double.
  • Angel Aguilar (1-for-3, double) and Wendell Rijo (1-for-4) had the other hits for the Thunder.
  • Trevor Lane threw two perfect innings and struck out four after coming in for Abreu. The four strikeouts are a season-high.

Tampa Tarpons (Single-A Advanced): The Tarpons (11-14) picked up a 6-4 win in their series opener against the Charlotte Stone Crabs.

Clarke Schmidt (1-1) picked up his first win in a Tarpons uniform on Tuesday. He allowed three runs on six hits, struck out three, and walked two in five innings of work. 47 of his 80 pitches were for strikes. All three runs were scored against him in the first inning.
