DoTF: Boyle no-hits Worcester, Volpe walks it off for HV

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders

Game 1: SWB dropped the first of two against Worcester, 5-3 (box score).

  • Starting pitcher: LHP Matt Krook: 2.2 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 6 K — 38 of 61 pitches were strikes (62%)
  • In relief: RHP Ron Marinaccio: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K — 20 of 33 pitches were strikes (61%)
  • In relief: RHP Adam Warren: 1.2 IP, 1 K, zeroes — 12 of 17 pitches were strikes (71%)
  • Prospect watch: CF Estevan Florial: 0-2, 2 BB, K — Hitting .199/.296/.374 for the RailRiders this season
  • Leftovers: RF Socrates Brito and C Donny Sands drove in the three runs SWB scored…LF Greg Allen had two hits.

Game 2: A no-hitter! Yeah, it was just seven innings, but Sean Boyle did it in SWB’s 5-0 win in the nightcap (box score).

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Sean Boyle: 7.0 IP, 0 H, 1 BB, 1 HBP, 6 K — 59 of 95 pitches were strikes (62%)…Terrific performance from 2018’s 25th round pick. He’s on his third level this year, spending time in Tampa and Hudson Valley before SWB. He’s got 15.1 innings with the RailRiders thus far, with all but tonight in relief, and has allowed just one run so far.
  • Hitting star: RF Socrates Brito: 3-3, 2 R, 3B, 2 SB
  • Leftovers: CF Jonathan Davis, LF Ryan LaMarre, and DH Matt Pita tallied the other hits for the RailRiders, all singles. Davis also stole a base and was caught stealing.

Double-A Somerset Patriots

Altoona stymied Somerset’s offense, winning 5-0 over the Patriots (box score).

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Luis Medina: 5.0 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 1 HR — 53 of 84 pitches were strikes (63%)…Good to see him not walk a batter. Second straight start doing so. However, his strikeouts are way down at Double-A (46 in 45.2 innings).
  • In relief: RHP Zach Greene: 2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K — 24 of 37 pitches were strikes (65%)
  • In relief: RHP Addison Russ: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 K — 13 of 20 pitches were strikes (65%)
  • Prospect watch: SS Oswald Peraza 2-2, 2 BB — The offense usually has a pretty good night when the leadoff hitter reaches base four times. Alas. He’s got an eight-game hitting streak in between his stint on the Yankees’ taxi squad. And since returning from the taxi squad, Peraza has 7 hits in his last 13 at-bats.
  • Rest of the offense: 3B Jesus Bastidas: 2-3, 2B, BB — 22 year-old is hitting .310/.442/.452 in 52 plate appearances with Somerset
  • Leftovers: No one else recorded a hit for the Patriots. A few guys reached base via walks, but that’s it.

High-A Hudson Valley Renegades

After coughing up a one-run lead in the top of the ninth, Anthony Volpe took matters into his own hands with a walk-off two-run shot to win it, 7-6 over Brooklyn (box score).

  • Starting pitcher: LHP Edgar Barclay: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 2 HR — 56 of 81 pitches were strikes (69%)
  • In relief: LHP Matt Minnick: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K — 20 of 35 pitches were strikes (57%)
  • In relief: RHP Charlie Ruegger: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K — 14 of 19 pitches were strikes (74%)
  • The hero: DH Anthony Volpe: 3-4, 3 R, 3B, HR, 2 RBI, BB — 15th-best prospect in all of MLB (per MLB Pipeline) hit a walk-off homer
  • Prospect watch: C Austin Wells: 0-3, RBI, BB, K
  • Leftovers: CF Elijah Dunham picked up two doubles, a walk, and a steal…RF Jake Sanford had a hit and an RBI…LF Pat DeMarco and 2B Luis Santos picked up the rest of the Renegades knocks.

Single-A Tampa Tarpons

Tampa fell to St. Lucie, 8-7 (box score).

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Tyrone Yulie: 3.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 2 K — 40 of 74 pitches were strikes (54%)
  • In relief: RHP Carlos Gomez: 2.1 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K — 27 of 44 pitches were strikes (61%)

  • Hitting star: RF Aldenis Sánchez: 3-4, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI — Acquired for Mike Ford and is hitting .413/.500/.588 in 94 plate appearances for Tampa
  • The Martian: CF Jasson Dominguez: 2-5, R, RBI, K — .245/.307/.363 with Tampa…still waiting for that breakout.
  • Prospect watch: DH Ryder Green: 1-5, R, HR, 3 RBI — 4th homer in 101 PA for the Tarpons
  • Leftovers: Everyone except LF Madison Santos picked up a hit in this one.

FCL Yankees

The FCL Yanks held off the FCL Tigers East 1, 2-1 (box score).

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Ocean Gabonia: 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 2 K
  • In relief: RHP Yarison Ruiz: 3.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 8 K — First time hearing of this guy, but any time you strike out 8 of 11 it’s hard not to take notice. This was the 21 year-old’s stateside debut.
  • In relief: RHP Osiel Rodriguez: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K
  • In relief: RHP Edward Paredes: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K
  • Prospect watch: DH Alexander Vargas: 0-3, RBI
  • Prospect watch: C Antonio Gomez: 1-4, R, 2B, K
  • Leftovers: 1B Anthony García had two hits…LF Jake Pries and 2B Sincere Smith had the other hits for the team. CF Raimfer Salinas was removed from the game after being hit by pitch, which is concerning.

    I suppose some might take the performance of Dominguez and see some cause for concern. But he seems to be doing fine for an 18 year old in his first professional experience. According to Fangraphs, there are four position players and one pitcher in the Southeast League who are 18 (min 20 AB or IP = about 400 players). So he is very young even for that level.

    • Derek

      He definitely has age on his side, but I will admit I’m concerned about his swing-and-miss. His K-rate is 32.5%. It may not be fair to compare him to Soto or Acuña, but those guys as teenagers in A-ball didn’t strike out nearly as much and raked immediately.

    • Smooth Gorbs

      I think he’s fine. He’s got so much raw talent, and that pitch recognition in game action is hard to just have. Hopefully he figures it out.
