Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Upper Level Teams Hold Court

Scranton-Wilkes Barre rode strong pitching and timely hitting to their seventh win in eight games. Somerset halted a two-game slide, and it’s safe to say that Tampa has come firmly back down to earth. Read about those game and more in Thursday’s Pinstriped Performances:

Armando Alvarez (Matt Bufano)

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (7-2): The RailRiders’ bullpen did not allow a run and struck out seven over 5.1 innings in a 5-2 win over the IronPigs.

  • Chris Gittens: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Ryan LaMarre: 1-for-4, 2 RBI, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Robinson Chirinos: 2-for-4, 1 home run, 2 RBIs, 1 strikeout. Chirinos went deep with one on and two outs in the fourth inning to give the RailRiders their first lead. 
  • Armando Alvarez: 1-for-2, 1 double, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Nick Green: 3.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R (1 ER), 4 BB, 3 K, 61 pitches (36 strikes)
  • Reggie McClain: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 23 pitches (15 strikes). McClain got his second win of the season in relief
  • Addison Russ: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 2 K, 32 pitches (18 strikes)
  • Brooks Kriske: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 18 pitches (10 strikes)
  • Luis García: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 14 pitches (12 strikes). Garcia worked around a two-out single by top prospect Mickey Moniak to earn the save

Somerset Patriots (6-3): Patriots pitching dominated all night long, and the offense came through to break open a close game with four runs in the eighth inning. The final margin was 6-1 over New Hampshire.

  • Estevan Florial: 1-for-5
  • Oswaldo Cabrera: 2-for-4, 2 doubles, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Diego Castillo: 1-for-5, 1 double, 1 run scored
  • Thomas Milone: 2-for-4, 1 home run (3), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 stolen bases. Milone’s solo home run was his second in three games, and his OPS now stands at 1.315 through 26 at-bats
  • Michael Beltre: 1-for-5, 1 triple, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Janson Junk: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K, 62 pitches (39 strikes). Junk has 10 strikeouts and three walks through two starts
  • J.P. Sears: 4.1 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, 61 pitches (37 strikes). Sears, acquired from Seattle way back in 2017, has 10 strikeouts through just 6.2 innings in relief this season and got the win tonight
  • Ron Marinaccio: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 18 pitches (13 strikes)

Oswald Peraza (Robert M. Pimpsner/Pinstriped Prospects)

Hudson Valley Renegades (4-5): Hudson Valley’s tilt with Aberdeen was tied at three after six innings, but the Renegades’ bullpen imploded late in a 9-5 loss.

  • Oswald Peraza: 1-for-3, 1 home run (2), 2 RBI, 2 walks, 1 strikeout. Peraza’s homer was his second in as many games. It came in garbage time, but he continues to heat up in the season’s second week
  • Ezequiel Duran: 1-for-5, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Duran has reached base safely in six of eight games to begin the season
  • Josh Breaux: 0-for-4, 2 strikeouts
  • Steven Sensley: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Pablo Olivares: 1-for-3, 1 run scored, 1 walk
  • Jhony Brito: 3.2 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 67 pitches (43 strikes)
  • Zach Greene: 3 IP, 0 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 47 pitches (28 strikes). Greene has amassed 15 strikeouts and three walks over 7.2 innings across three appearances this year
  • Tanner Myatt: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 3 ER, 5 BB, 2 K, 43 pitches (18 strikes)
  • Justin Wilson: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 40 pitches (21 strikes)
  • Matt Minnick: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 3 pitches (3 strikes)
