Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (4-1): The RailRiders suffered their first loss of the season in walk-off fashion, 4-3 in 10 innings.

  • Star of the Game: Oswald Peraza – 4-for-5, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout. Peraza briefly brought Scranton back from the dead, singling home the tying run with two outs in the top of the ninth

  • Miguel Andujar: 2-for-4, 1 run scored
  • Luis Gil: 3.2 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 66 pitches (42 strikes). Gil had putaway stuff, with his only real blemish a solo home run surrendered in the first
  • Trevor Lane: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 1 R (0 ER), 2 BB, 1 K, 22 pitches (10 strikes)
  • Braden Bristo: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 1 K, 32 pitches (18 strikes)

  • Elijah Dunham: 2-for-5, 1 triple, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Josh Breaux: 2-for-5, 1 home run (2), 4 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Breaux is off to a fast start with 6 RBI already

Hudson Valley Renegades (1-1): A dramatic two-out rally in the ninth sent the game to extras, and Hudson Valley blew it open in the 10th as they defeated Greenville 8-4.

  • Star of the Game: Aldenis Sanchez – 2-for-4, 2 RBI, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, 1 stolen base. Sanchez came through in the top of the ninth with a two-out RBI single to tie the game, and also contributed to the tenth-inning onslaught with another hit
  • Trey Sweeney: 1-for-6, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Sweeney’s single in the 10th scored the automatic runner to start the knockout punch
  • Everson Pereira: 1-for-4, 2 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout, 2 stolen bases
  • TJ Rumfield: 1-for-4, 1 home run (1), 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks. Rumfield, brought over from the Phillies system in the Nick Nelson/Donny Sands trade, went yard for the first time as a Yankee prospect

Tampa Tarpons (1-1): Tampa’s offense was largely silenced in a 5-1 defeat to the Flying Tigers.

  • Star of the Game: Marcos Cabrera – 2-for-4, 1 home run (2), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Cabrera has two home runs, but tonight’s was of the inside-the-park variety
  • Jasson Dominguez: 0-for-4, 1 strikeout
  • Madison Santos: 1-for-2, 2 walks, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Josue Panacual: 3.1 IP, 4 H, 3 R (2 ER), 1 BB, 6 K, 59 pitches (37 strikes)
