Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (71-60): Scranton rode four home runs and 15 hits overall to an easy 7-2 win over Durham, whittling the Bulls’ division lead back down to two games in the loss column with three left to play in this series.

  • Star of the Game: Anthony Volpe – 2-for-5, 2 home runs (2), 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout. Volpe’s first and second career long balls at Triple-A were both solo shots. His OPS at this level sits at a ridiculous 1.260
  • Chris Owings: 4-for-5, 2 runs scored, 1 stolen base
  • Ben Rortvedt: 2-for-5, 2 doubles, 1 RBI, 2 strikeouts
  • Ryan LaMarre: 2-for-4, 1 home run (3), 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. LaMarre added some insurance runs with a two-run homer in the ninth
  • Armando Alvarez: 2-for-3, 1 home run (15), 2 RBI, 1 run scored. Alvarez is second on the team, and first among current players, in home runs
  • Mitch Spence: 6 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 78 pitches (52 strikes). Spence moved to 2-2 with the win and has gone at least five innings in four straight starts
  • Anthony Banda: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 28 pitches (18 strikes)
  • Jimmy Cordero: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 15 pitches (8 strikes)

  • Star of the Game: Trey Sweeney – 2-for-4, 1 home run (1), 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Sweeney’s three-run shot was the first of his Double-A career and turned a 2-2 tie into a 5-2 Patriots lead
  • Andres Chaparro: 2-for-5, 2 RBI, 2 strikeouts. Chaparro drove in the winning runs with a single in the ninth inning
  • Mickey Gasper: 1-for-2, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout
  • Barrett Loseke: 3.2 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 58 pitches (43 strikes). Loseke made his first start in 36 appearances this season
  • Shawn Semple: 3.1 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 49 pitches (34 strikes)

Hudson Valley Renegades (71-57): The Renegades dispatched the Blue Rocks 8-0, but Brooklyn won its fifth straight game, protecting a 1.5 game lead in the standings with just three left to play.

  • Star of the Game: Edgar Barclay – 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K, 64 pitches (43 strikes). Barclay, who is now 7-4, has made four starts this year, two in April and two in September. He has allowed just a single earned run and struck out 24 over those appearances
  • Anthony Seigler: 2-for-4, 2 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout
  • Jasson Dominguez: 1-for-5, 1 triple, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 stolen base
  • Tyler Hardman: 1-for-4, 1 home run (22), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Hardman hit a sixth-inning solo shot for the final run of the game and maintained his team lead in homers
  • TJ Rumfield: 3-for-5, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored
  • Benjamin Cowles: 3-for-5, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout
  • Bailey Dees: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K, 28 pitches (19 strikes)

Tampa Tarpons (61-65): Tampa ran into more weather issues in Daytona, with tonight’s game postponed by rain. The two teams will play a doubleheader tomorrow. Dunedin defeated Palm Beach, meaning the Tarpons can’t make up any ground in the rescheduled game.
