Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Volpe Day

Not even yet another round of dreary weather could stop the Yanks’ 2019 first-round draft pick from bringing the thunder, but the downpours further north foiled the Patriots and Renegades.

Chris Gittens (Matt Bufano)

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (18-7): RailRiders pitching struck out 12 IronPigs and the division leaders cruised to an easy 5-1 win.

  • Star of the Game: Chris Gittens – 2-for-3, 1 double, 2 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout. Amidst all the buzz about his potential promotion, Gittens just keeps on hittin’ with a 1.112 OPS
  • Hoy Jun Park: 2-for-4, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Park has played his way into the everyday leadoff spot and recorded his second straight multi-hit game
  • Trey Amburgey: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Socrates Brito: 1-for-4, 2 RBI, 1 strikeout
  • Brian Keller: 4 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, 81 pitches (48 strikes)
  • Kyle Barraclough: 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K, 42 pitches (26 strikes). Barraclough provided some efficient relief for Scranton and got himself a win for his efforts
  • Braden Bristo: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 19 pitches (14 strikes)
  • Luis García: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 8 pitches (6 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (18-7): Rain postponed Somerset’s matchup with Reading. The game will be made up Saturday as part of a doubleheader.

Hudson Valley Renegades (14-11): The Renegades’ meeting with the Blue Rocks was postponed and will be played on Saturday as part of a doubleheader.

Tampa Tarpons (19-8): Completing a suspended game from Wednesday, the Tarpons blew a late lead and lost 7-6. But they channeled their inner Michael Jordan and took that personally, recovering to wallop Lakeland in the regularly scheduled game by a 16-2 scoreline.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Jesus Bastidas – 2-for-4, 1 home run (2), 4 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. The 22-year-old’s three-run home run in the fifth inning came with two outs and breathed life into the listless Tarpons offense
  • Anthony Volpe – 2-for-4, 1 home run (3), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Volpe tied the game in the sixth with a solo home run
  • Austin Wells: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 strikeout
  • Andres Chaparro: 2-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Chad Bell: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Pat DeMarco: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Yoendrys Gómez: 2.2 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 36 pitches (22 strikes). Gómez made his season debut and will continue to phase back into action
  • Sean Boyle: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 2 R (1 ER), 1 BB, 5 K, 55 pitches (37 strikes)
  • Trevor Holloway: 2 IP, 3 H, 3 R (1 ER), 1 BB, 0 K, 44 pitches (31 strikes). The normally rock-solid Holloway stumbled a bit and gave up the lead in the eighth
  • Wellington Diaz: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 12 pitches (8 strikes)

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Anthony Volpe – 3-for-5, 2 home runs (5), 1 double, 6 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Simply a career day for the prized prospect, who eclipsed a season’s worth of home runs in one day, over two games
  • Josh Smith: 2-for-3, 2 RBI, 3 runs scored, 2 walks
  • Austin Wells: 0-for-2, 1 run scored, 4 walks
  • Trevor Hauver: 0-for-5, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Elijah Dunham: 2-for-4, 2 home runs (4), 5 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 walk. Not to be outdone by Volpe, Dunham also matched his season homer total in one game
  • Pat DeMarco: 2-for-3, 1 home run (5), 1 RBI, 3 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout. DeMarco added another bomb to make it five on the day for Tampa
  • Ryan Anderson: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 40 pitches (24 strikes). Anderson carried a no-hitter through three innings
  • Nelvin Correa: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 41 pitches (26 strikes). Correa, who took over with a comfy 12-run lead already in hand, lowered his ERA to 1.06 with an outing that earned him a win
  • Clay Aguilar: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 36 pitches (21 strikes)
  • Kevin Milam: 2.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 18 pitches (12 strikes)
