Pinstriped Performances: Wishes Granted

The Tarpons were the only affiliate in the win column on Wednesday thanks in part to Grant Richardson’s timely hits. Hudson Valley and Somerset had quiet nights.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (9-15): Scranton’s tilt in Rochester was postponed due to rain. The Red Wings and RailRiders will play a doubleheader on Saturday to make it up.

Somerset Patriots (15-8): It was an unceremonious end to Somerset’s five-game winning streak, as the Patriots slumped to a 3-1 defeat to New Hampshire.

  • Star of the Game: Sean Boyle – 5 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 9 K, 80 pitches (51 strikes). Aside from one total meltdown of a start on April 21, Boyle has been brilliant this season
  • Anthony Volpe: 0-for-3, 2 stolen bases
  • Derek Dietrich: 1-for-2, 1 home run (4), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Dietrich has a 1.149 OPS
  • Matt Minnick: 2.2 IP, 0 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 38 pitches (24 strikes). Minnick took the loss to move to 2-1
  • Derek Craft: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 30 pitches (15 strikes)

Hudson Valley Renegades (12-11): The Renegades dropped their second in a row to Jersey Shore, getting shut out 5-0.

  • Star of the Game: Will Warren – 4 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 69 pitches (46 strikes). Warren took a tough-luck loss because of a lack of run support, but the 22-year-old is breaking out in his rookie season, having struck out 28 and walked just seven through 21 innings
  • Carlos Narvaez: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 walk
  • Pat DeMarco: 3-for-4, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Tanner Myatt: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 16 pitches (8 strikes)
  • Welington Diaz: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 2 R (1 ER), 0 BB, 2 K, 30 pitches (16 strikes)
  • Alex Mauricio: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 25 pitches (21 strikes)

Tampa Tarpons (11-11): A big ninth-inning rally saw Tampa take their second in a row from Bradenton, this time in a wild 7-5 affair.

  • Star of the Game: Grant Richardson – 2-for-3, 3 RBI, 2 walks, 1 strikeout. Richardson led the Tarpons offense with a run-scoring single in the fifth and a two-RBI single in the ninth that added to their lead – and proved crucial when the Marauders tacked on a couple more runs in the bottom of the inning
  • Alex Vargas: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 stolen base
  • Jasson Dominguez: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Dominguez has six doubles and a homer on the year, but has only walked four times
  • Madison Santos: 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts. Santos put the Tarpons on top in the ninth with an RBI single
  • Roberto Chirinos: 2-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Yon Castro: 3.2 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 62 pitches (42 strikes)
  • Danny Watson: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 21 pitches (14 strikes)
  • Zach Messinger: 2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 41 pitches (27 strikes). Messinger served up a game-tying two-run home run in the seventh
  • Jack Neely: 2 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 42 pitches (24 strikes). Despite giving up two runs and allowing the tying run to come to the plate, Neely struck out Juan Jerez for the game’s last out and emerged with a win – his second of the year
