Pinstriped Performances: Wesneski Records Complete Game Shutout

The Patriots and Sea Dogs split a doubleheader, with Hayden Wesneski turning in one of the finest pitching performances in a season full of them around the system. Elsewhere, Scranton went down hard and Hudson Valley lost a heartbreaker.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (49-32): The RailRiders fell to Lehigh Valley in thoroughly non-competitive fashion 9-3.

  • Star of the Game: Armando Alvarez – 2-for-4, 1 home run (8), 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Alvarez was the only RailRider to manage more than one hit on the evening
  • Donny Sands: 1-for-4
  • Max Burt: 1-for-3, 1 home run (1), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. The Massachusetts native has made it all the way from Low-A to Triple-A in one season, and he went deep in just his second game at this level
  • Josh Maciejewski: 4 IP, 8 H, 8 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 77 pitches (52 strikes)
  • Nick Green: 3 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 41 pitches (26 strikes)
  • Adam Warren: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K, 29 pitches (21 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (52-33): The Patriots lost the first game to Portland 3-2 but beat the Sea Dogs in the second leg 3-0 thanks to Wesneski’s best outing of the season.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Brandon Lockridge – 2-for-4, 1 home run (7), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Lockridge has compiled a healthy .950 OPS mostly out of the leadoff spot since his promotion
  • Dermis Garcia: 1-for-2, 1 double, 1 walk
  • Isiah Gilliam: 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout
  • Clarke Schmidt: 3.2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 52 pitches (34 strikes). Schmidt was bitten by the long ball, surrendering two bombs in his second rehab appearance at Double-A
  • Barrett Loseke: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 42 pitches (27 strikes)
  • Kevin Gadea: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 13 pitches (8 strikes)

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Hayden Wesneski – 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K, 89 pitches (61 strikes). Wesneski was utterly dominant, and after a tough start with Somerset, he now has two straight starts with no more than one earned run allowed and exactly seven punchouts
  • Oswaldo Cabrera: 1-for-3, 1 run scored
  • Isiah Gilliam: 2-for-3, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Chad Bell: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Chase Ilig: 1-for-1, 1 double, 2 RBI, 2 walks. The 2019 29th-round draft selection had his first extra-base hit of the season

Austin Wells (Robert M Pimpsner/Pinstriped Prospects)

Hudson Valley Renegades (54-32): The BlueClaws broke a tie in the ninth inning and went on to beat the ‘Gades 7-6.

  • Star of the Game: Austin Wells – 2-for-4, 1 home run (1), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk. Wells got his first home run at High-A and has hit well overall since his promotion
  • Everson Pereira: 1-for-3, 2 runs scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout
  • James Nelson: 1-for-4, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts, 1 stolen base
  • Eduardo Torrealba: 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout
  • Anderson Munoz: 3 IP, 4 H, 3 R (2 ER), 1 BB, 7 K, 70 pitches (48 strikes)
  • Nelvin Correa: 2.2 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 45 pitches (28 strikes). Correa made his High-A debut after a well-deserved promotion
  • Matt Minnick: 2.2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 40 pitches (28 strikes)
  • Nelson L. Alvarez: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K, 16 pitches (10 strikes)

Tampa Tarpons (56-27): The Tarpons’ scheduled tilt with Clearwater was postponed and will be made up tomorrow as part of a doubleheader.
