Pinstriped Performances: Volpe Debuts In Scranton

The biggest story was Oswald Peraza’s promotion to New York, but in a corresponding move, Anthony Volpe moved up to Triple-A and didn’t disappoint in his first game.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (67-59): The RailRiders walked off the Mets in a nailbiter, 2-1.

  • Blake Perkins: 1-for-3, 1 home run (2), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Perkins put the RailRiders on the board in the second with a solo homer
  • Matt Krook: 6.1 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 8 K, 91 pitches (56 strikes). Krook’s quality start was his first since August 9 and his first time allowing fewer than three walks since August 4

  • Star of the Game: Austin Wells: 2-for-4, 1 triple, 4 RBI, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Wells cleared the bases in the third with a triple and added a run-scoring single in the seventh, and he’s riding a five-game hitting streak
  • Brandon Lockridge: 2-for-5, 1 double, 1 RBI
  • Eric Wagaman: 1-for-3, 1 home run (4), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk. Wagaman has a sky-high 1.220 OPS with Somerset

Hudson Valley Renegades (68-55): The ‘Gades struck out 19 BlueClaws hitters and walked off as winners by a 3-2 scoreline, and with Brooklyn’s loss to Wilmington, they moved back into first place by a half-game.

  • Star of the Game: Kyle Battle – 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 stolen base. Battle, who’s hitting .333 at High-A, played the hero on Friday by driving in Spencer Henson with a single in the bottom of the ninth
  • Anthony Seigler: 1-for-3, 1 double, 2 RBI
  • Trey Sweeney: 3-for-4, 2 stolen bases
  • Eduardo Torrealba: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 stolen base
