DoTF: Scranton and Hudson Valley win blowouts

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders

The RailRiders improved to 29-11 after toppling Lehigh Valley, 14-5 (box score).

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Luis Gil: 4.0 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 7 BB, 5 K — 53 of 99 pitches were strikes (54%)…Effectively wild, I guess. Had 13 walks in 30.2 innings with Somerset before the promotion to Triple-A, now has 10 in 9 innings with Scranton.
  • In relief: RHP Braden Bristo: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K — 13 of 23 pitches were strikes (57%)
  • Rehab watch in relief: RHP Darren O’Day: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K — 10 of 20 pitches were strikes (50%)…first rehab appearance since shoulder strain
  • Rehab watch in relief: LHP Justin Wilson: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K — 10 of 18 pitches were strikes (56%)also his first tune-up since injury (hamstring strain).
  • In relief: LHP Trevor Lane: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K — 15 of 22 pitches were strikes (68%)
  • In relief: RHP Albert Abreu: 1.0 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 K — 21 of 31 pitches were strikes (68%)
  • Can’t put him in park: CF Hoy Park: 3-7, 3 R, 2B, RBI — Yes, he played center field. Has never played the outfield in a minor league game. This is something to keep an eye on.
  • Leftovers: LF Greg Allen was the only hitless RailRider, though he did draw a walk…2B Derek Dietrich and RF Ryan LaMarre had three-hit games along with Park…SS Andrew Velazquez and 3B Armando Alvarez went yard.

Double-A Somerset Patriots

The Patriots game against Portland was postponed due to rain. They’ll play a double-header tomorrow.

High-A Hudson Valley Renegades

Hudson Valley blew out Wilmington, 12-3 (box score). The ‘Gades plated five in the fifth and four in the seventh to put this one out of reach.

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Mitch Spence: 5.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K — 46 of 73 pitches were strikes (63%)
  • In relief: RHP Elvis Peguero: 2.0 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K — 28 of 42 pitches were strikes (67%)
  • In relief: LHP Matt Minnick: 2.0 IP, 3 H, zeroes — 17 of 23 pitches were strikes (74%)
  • Hitting star: CF Brandon Lockridge: 2-5, 2 R, 2B, HR, 4 RBI, 2 K — Three-run homer in the fifth gave HV a six run lead…has raised his batting line from .220/.322/.340 to .254/.325/.408 during five-game hit streak.
  • First round watch: DH Anthony Seigler: 1-5, K — Has just a .516 OPS in 58 plate appearances
  • Leftovers: Everyone had at least one hit in this one…in fact, only Seigler, 2B Ezequiel Duran, and LF Elijah Dunham didn’t have multi-hit games.

Single-A Tampa Tarpons

Tampa’s game against Lakeland was suspended after one inning of play (box score). Of note, 3B Andres Chaparro drove in C Austin Wells and 2B Trevor Hauver with a single in the top of the first. Wells walked and Hauver singled earlier in the frame. RHP Yoendrys Gomez struck out one and gave up two hits in the bottom half before the game’s suspension.

    Tyler Wade is arbitration eligible after this season. Playing Park in CF may simply be preparation for Park taking over Wade’s role.
