Pinstriped Performances: Vintage Deivi

Though his prospect stock has fallen somewhat, Deivi Garcia showed he’s still capable of the dominance he exhibited during his rapid rise through the system in 2019.

Matt Pita (John Brophy/Pinstriped Prospects)

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (63-55): Following their 4-3 win over the Storm Chasers, the RailRiders sit just two games back of Durham and Lehigh Valley in the loss column.

  • Star of the Game: Matt Pita – 3-for-3, 1 home run (5), 3 RBI, 1 run scored. Pita hit his first home run since May 10
  • Armando Alvarez: 2-for-3, 1 home run (13), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. Alvarez put the RailRiders on top with a solo homer in the seventh inning and has gone deep in two consecutive games
  • Ryan LaMarre: 2-for-3, 1 run scored
  • Sean Boyle: 7 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 69 pitches (46 strikes). Boyle earned the win despite serving up three solo home runs

Somerset Patriots (71-44): The Patriots rallied past New Hampshire for a 3-2 win.

  • Star of the Game: Deivi Garcia – 6.1 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 10 K, 85 pitches (58 strikes). Garcia matched his season high in strikeouts set two starts ago, and apart from allowing back-to-back homers to start the fifth inning, he was brilliant
  • Everson Pereira: 1-for-4, 1 triple, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Austin Wells: 2-for-4, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Andres Chaparro: 2-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout

Hudson Valley Renegades (62-53): ‘Gades pitching held the Hickory bats mostly silent in a 4-2 victory.

  • Star of the Game: Aaron Palensky – 1-for-3, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 strikeout. Palensky’s two-run double in the sixth put the ‘Gades ahead by the winning margin
  • Trey Sweeney: 2-for-4, 1 run scored
  • Tyler Hardman: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Juan Carela: 5.2 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 80 pitches (49 strikes). Carela has alternated poor starts and good ones for the whole month of August
  • Jhonatan Munoz: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K, 24 pitches (16 strikes). Munoz allowed one of Carela’s inherited runners to score, tagging himself with a blown save, but also earned his fifth win when the Renegades went on to take the lead in the bottom of the same inning
  • Carlos Gomez: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 10 pitches (5 strikes). Gomez worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his third save

RHP Yorlin Calderon (John Brophy/Pinstriped Prospects)

Tampa Tarpons (55-59): The Tarpons shut down Clearwater in a 3-0 win.

  • Star of the Game: Yorlin Calderon – 3.1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 6 K, 64 pitches (41 strikes). Calderon, who got his second win, has allowed just three hits and no runs in two appearances at Low-A this year, with the other one coming all the way back on May 25
  • Spencer Jones: 2-for-4, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Brett Barrera: 3-for-4, 2 RBI, 1 run scored. Barrera is hitting .333
