Pinstriped Performances: Walk-Off Wednesday

As ballyhooed pitching prospects made highly anticipated Triple-A and Double-A debuts, the two senior Yankees affiliates played hero ball on Hump Day. Rob Brantly and Donny Sands cranked game-ending home runs in extra innings to lift their teams to victory.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (25-11): Hoy Jun Park’s RBI single in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game set the stage for Brantly’s heroics in the tenth as the RailRiders overcame an early 5-2 deficit to win 10-7 over Syracuse.

  • Star of the Game: Rob Brantly – 2-for-5, 1 home run (3), 3 RBI, 2 runs scored. With runners on second and third and one out in the tenth of a tie game, Brantly could’ve simply lifted a fly ball to the outfield; instead, he lifted one over the wall
  • Hoy Jun Park: 1-for-2, 1 RBI, 4 walks. Park got on base all night long and extended the game with his one-out single in the ninth
  • Estevan Florial: 1-for-4, 3 runs scored, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts
  • Trey Amburgey: 1-for-5, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Thomas Milone: 3-for-5, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Luis Gil: 5 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 95 pitches (58 strikes). Gil was tagged for two home runs in his Triple-A debut
  • Brooks Kriske: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 32 pitches (19 strikes)
  • Sal Romano: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 4 pitches (2 strikes)
  • Reggie McClain: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 34 pitches (25 strikes)
  • Nick Goody: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 11 pitches (8 strikes). Goody’s perfect top of the tenth earned him his fourth win of the year

Somerset Patriots (23-13): A wild, back-and-forth affair saw the Patriots tie the score in the bottom of the ninth and rally twice in extras to emerge with a 7-5 win over Richmond.

  • Star of the Game: Donny Sands – 1-for-5, 1 home run (6), 3 RBI, 1 run scored. Sands hit his third home run in the last two nights in the bottom of the 11th inning to send everybody home happy

  • Oswald Peraza: 1-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts

  • Michael Beltre: 2-for-4
  • Isiah Gilliam: 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout. Gilliam’s clutch two-out double scored the tying run in the bottom of the ninth
  • Luis Medina: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 10 K, 91 pitches (59 strikes). The first domino to fall (or rise?) in Hudson Valley’s dominant rotation trio was Medina, who thoroughly impressed in his Double-A debut
  • Michael Gomez: 1.1 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 23 pitches (17 strikes)
  • Keegan Curtis: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 19 pitches (12 strikes)
  • Stephen Ridings: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 5 K, 33 pitches (26 strikes)
  • Zach Greene: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 4 pitches (4 strikes)

Hudson Valley Renegades (21-15): A see-saw matchup between the BlueClaws and Renegades ended in Jersey Shore’s favor by a 6-4 score.

  • Star of the Game: Josh Breaux – 4-for-5, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Breaux followed up his walk-off home run on Tuesday with his fourth multi-hit game and first with four hits this season
