Pinstriped Performances: Volpe Leads ‘Gades to Week-Opening Win

Death, taxes, Anthony Volpe going deep. The young phenom got another one on Tuesday as part of a strong effort from his team, while Scranton and Tampa faltered and Somerset was rained out.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (49-31): Another difficult outing for Deivi García did the RailRiders no favors as they were shut out until the ninth and fell to Lehigh Valley 8-1.

  • Star of the Game: Donny Sands – 1-for-3, 1 home run (4), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Sands kept his strong run at Triple-A going with a homer to lead off the ninth, Scranton’s only offense of the ballgame
  • Estevan Florial: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 strikeout
  • Kyle Holder: 2-for-4, 1 double
  • Deivi García: 4.1 IP, 3 H, 5 ER, 5 BB, 4 K, 94 pitches (50 strikes). García struggled with control in addition to giving up a trademark homer. A microcosm of his underwhelming season
  • Reggie McClain: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 27 pitches (19 strikes)
  • Braden Bristo: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 30 pitches (21 strikes)
  • Ron Marinaccio: 1.2 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 44 pitches (31 strikes). Called up prior to the game, it was a rocky Triple-A debut for the 26-year-old
  • Greg Weissert: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 4 pitches (3 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (51-32): The Patriots-Sea Dogs matchup was postponed due to rain. A doubleheader will be played tomorrow.

Hudson Valley Renegades (54-31): The ‘Gades opened up their week with a solid 7-4 win over Jersey Shore thanks to three home runs from some of their studs.

  • Star of the Game: Anthony Volpe – 2-for-4, 1 home run (6), 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. Volpe hit his 18th home run of the year across all levels and is hitting a sightly .329 at High-A
  • Everson Pereira: 1-for-3, 1 home run (2), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base. Pereira is only hitting .217 overall with Hudson Valley, but he’s now homered in back-to-back games
  • Jake Sanford: 1-for-4, 1 triple, 1 run scored, 3 strikeouts
  • Pat DeMarco: 1-for-2, 1 home run (4), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. DeMarco followed up a five-game hitting streak with three straight 0-for-4s, but broke that run emphatically on Tuesday
  • Eduardo Torrealba: 1-for-2, 2 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout, 3 stolen bases
  • Mitch Spence: 6 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 84 pitches (55 strikes). Spence has put together a string of quality outings since the beginning of July, only allowing more than one earned run once in that span of six starts
  • Freicer Perez: 1 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 26 pitches (14 strikes)
  • Trevor Holloway: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 35 pitches (24 strikes). Holloway picked up a multi-inning save

Tampa Tarpons (56-27): The Tampa bats were unusually quiet to open their series against Clearwater as they lost 3-2 in the first sighting of Clint Frazier on rehab.

  • Star of the Game: Clay Aguilar – 3.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K, 50 pitches (34 strikes). Aguilar’s three innings of scoreless relief were as close to a star as this game would give
  • Jasson Dominguez: 0-for-4, 3 strikeouts. Dominguez is 3 for his last 21
  • Clint Frazier: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. The rehabbing Yankee was the only Tarpon with multiple hits
  • Trey Sweeney: 0-for-4, 2 strikeouts
  • Juan Carela: 3.2 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 75 pitches (44 strikes). The 19-year-old made the jump across the street for his full-season ball debut
  • Wellington Diaz: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 36 pitches (19 strikes)

FCL Yankees (19-7): The Yanks clobbered the Blue Jays 13-5 in a makeup of yesterday’s postponed game.

  • Star of the Game: Anthony Garcia – 1-for-1, 1 home run (7), 2 RBI, 3 runs scored, 4 walks. Garcia reached base all five times he went to the plate and crushed his FCL Yanks-leading seventh home run with one on in the seventh
  • Alex Vargas: 2-for-5, 1 double, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts, 1 stolen base
  • Antonio Gomez: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout
  • Angel Rojas: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout
  • Kyle Battle: 2-for-5, 1 double, 4 RBI, 2 runs scored. A July signee, Battle is hitting .143 in five games
  • Nolan Martinez: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K
  • Alfred Vega: 4 IP, 2 H, 1 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 3 K. Vega picked up his first win
  • Osiel Rodriguez: 1.1 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K. The highly-touted Cuban was making his first appearance in exactly two calendar years
  • Kevin Milam: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

DSL Yankees 1 (8-13): The Yanks couldn’t get much going and lost to Phillies Red 4-1.

  • Star of the Game: Alan Mejia – 2-for-3, 1 home run (2), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Mejia has gone deep on back-to-back days and had the only two hits of the game for the Yanks
  • Nolberto Henriquez: 5 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K
  • Miguel Vargas: 3 IP, 3 H, 3 R (1 ER), 1 BB, 3 K

DSL Yankees 2 (11-10): The sliding Yanks 2 also could not muster up any offense and lost to the Rockies 6-1.

  • Star of the Game: Joel Mendez – 1-for-2, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Mendez’s first inning single scoring Brenny Escanio was the only offense of the day
  • Mauro Bonifacio: 1-for-2, 1 double, 1 walk
  • Nelson Medina: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 strikeout
  • Carlos Rosario: 3 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, 0 BB, 3 K
  • Jordarlin Mendoza: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K
  • Daniel Calderon: 1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 0 K
  • Franyer Hernandez: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K
