News & Notes


Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders

The RailRiders won a completely ridiculous game against Syracuse 17-11, improving to 2-1 on the season. 17 runs!

  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Deivi Garcia: 3.1 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 7 BB, 3 K, 1 HR – just 32 of Deivi’s 72 pitches (46%) went for strikes…woof
  • In Relief: RHP Addison Russ: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 4 R, 3 BB, 2 K – took him 38 pitches to throw one inning…half were strikes
  • In Relief: RHP Braden Bristo: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 2 BB, 0 K – jeez, a pitcher didn’t allow a run in this game?

  • In Relief: Luis Garcia: 1.0 IP, 1 K – 54% of his pitches went for strikes in the only clean inning on either side in this one
  • Miggy Mantle: 1B-3B Miguel Andújar: 4-5, 4 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB – interesting to see him play the infield after the Gio injury, he’d been in LF both other nights so far

  • Bronx Watch: 1B Chris Gittens: 2-3, 1 RBI, 1 BB

The Renegades fell to 1-2 on the young season, with a 5-1 loss to the Jersey Shore BlueClaws. Still, ‘Gades pitchers struck out 12 and mostly pitched pretty well, minus a disastrous, 4-run 7th inning that featured 2 walks, a hit batter, a sac fly, and a triple. That’ll do ya.

  • Leftovers: the rest of the lineup went 0-16 with 5 strikeouts, though they did walk 6 times

The Tarpons improved to 3-0 on the season, beating Dunedin 10-6. Their offensive rampage continued. Tampa is a great team to follow so far.

  • Leftovers: Spencer Henson, Max Burt, and Elijah Dunham each had a hit…Evan Alexander had 2…every player had at least one run scored


Game 31: A Game Of Thrones-like Bad Finale


Mailbag: Bases Loaded, Gleyber Defense, Severino, Pujols


  1. DZB

    Anyone know why Voit was not in any of the games? Planned day off during rehab, or a day to get back with the major league team?

    Nice to see Andujar playing well. With Ford a total void at 1B and Gio possibly ailing at 3B, I could see Andujar as an option for the ML roster. That is especially true if he looks potentially playable in defense at 3B and in the outfield. (his future seems to also hinge a bit on whether Gardy can get it going since Miggy could be an option in LF if Gardy ends up looking like toast all season)

  2. Steven Tydings

    1. Really like Volpe. His hitting was really coming around before he got mono in ’19
    2. Miggy! I think the manager said he’s trying to have him stay at the same position for multiple days in a row, so we’ll have to see if he stays at 1B and/or 3B tmrw.
    3. I saw Alek Manoah pitch in Triple-A for the Jays tonight and…uh oh. He’s good.

    Great stuff as always, Bobby (and Derek was great yesterday too!)

    • Bobby

      Same! I left him off my most-watched list because I am a dumb ass and thought the year off might hurt him, but hasn’t been the case yet. Hope he continues to mash. And yes, Davis did say that about position. Curious where Andújar plays tonight.
