Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders

The RailRiders came up short against Syracuse, 10-8 (box score). Down 6-0 after a rough start from Luis Gil, the offense tied it up in the fourth and took the lead in the sixth inning, but the bullpen coughed it up.

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Luis Gil: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 4 BB, 2 K, 2 HBP — 26 of 54 pitches were strikes (48%)…Yikes, what a mess of a start. This follows his six no-hit innings last time out.
  • In relief: RHP Brian Keller: 2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 2 K — 28 of 53 pitches were strikes (53%)
  • In relief: RHP Reggie McClain: 2.2 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 2 K — 21 of 43 pitches were strikes (49%)…Rare poor outing for McClain, who took the loss. He has a 1.43 ERA this season.
  • In relief: RHP Braden Bristo: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K — 8 of 12 pitches were strikes (67%)
  • In relief: RHP Stephen Ridings: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K — 11 of 15 pitches were strikes (73%)
  • Hitting star: SS Andrew Velazquez: 3-4, R, 2 2B, 2 RBI, BB, K, SB — Also made a nifty defensive play as you can see below
  • Multi-hit games: 3B Armando Alvarez (2-5, R, K) and SS Kyle Holder (3-3, R, 2 BB)
  • Leftovers: Every RailRider had a hit. DH Matt Pita went deep for the team’s only other extra base hit.

Double-A Somerset Patriots

Somerset topped Reading 5-4 in 10 innings (box score). Michael Beltre, who hit a two-run homer early in this one, hit the go-ahead RBI single in the 10th. Kevin Gadea escaped a bases loaded, no one out jam in the bottom half to hold on.

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Janson Junk: 4.0 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 1 HR — 57 of 88 pitches were strikes (65%)…Only the second time he’s given up more than two runs in a game all season (1.78 ERA in 65.2 IP).
  • In relief: RHP Elvis Peguero: 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K — 29 of 45 pitches were strikes (64%)
  • In relief: RHP Addison Russ: 2.1 IP 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K — 23 of 36 pitches were strikes (64%)
  • In relief: RHP Kevin Gadea: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 2 K — 11 of 22 pitches were strikes (50%)…Walked the first two batters he faced. Keep in mind there was the extra inning rule in effect, too. Nice escape.
  • Hitting star: RF Michael Beltre: 3-4, 2 R, HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB, 1 SB — Has 12 homers and 20 steals in 270 plate appearances. Nice year for the 26 year-old.
  • Prospect watch: SS Oswald Peraza: 0-5, RBI — They can’t all be winners
  • Leftovers: Pretty quiet night for the offense aside from Beltre. 1B Dermis García, 2B Jesus Bastidas, and DH Aaron Palensky had the only other hits.

High-A Hudson Valley Renegades

After a 58 minute rain delay, the Renegades played a full nine against Wilmington and lost, 5-4 (box score). Not much to write home about in this one except for Anthony Seigler’s huge night.

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Jhony Brito: 4.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 5 K — 57 of 94 pitches were strikes (61%)
  • In relief: RHP Trevor Holloway: 3.1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K — 33 of 53 pitches were strikes (62%)
  • In relief: RHP Derek Craft: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 K — 15 of 18 pitches were strikes (83%)
  • Hitting star: C Anthony Seigler: 2-4, 2 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI, K — Increased his slugging percentage from .355 to .406 just like that. Seigler’s been one of the few prospects not to have an offensive breakout this year, but good to see this performance. Home run videos below.
  • Prospect watch: 2B Anthony Volpe: 0-3, R, BB, K, SB — Josh Smith played shortstop tonight…Volpe made two errors, wonder if he’s just not too comfortable at the keystone.
  • Leftovers: RF Jake Sanford and LF Elijah Dunham had the only other hits for the Renegades. Dunham’s was a double. DH Josh Breaux walked twice.

Single-A Tampa Tarpons

The Tarpons’ game against Palm Beach was postponed. They’ll play a double-header tomorrow.

FCL Yankees

The rookie-level Yankees lost to the FCL Tigers, 12-8 (box score).

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Freicer Perez: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 K — Left his last start early with a leg injury, thankfully it appears to have been minor. This was a rehab outing, by the way. I’d expect him in Hudson Valley eventually. He topped out in High-A when he was last healthy in 2018.
  • In relief: RHP Alfred Vega: 3.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
  • In relief: RHP Yoljeldriz Diaz: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 4 BB, 0 K
  • In relief: RHP Jarod Lessar: 2.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
  • In relief: LHP Brandom Sánchez: 1.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER
  • Prospect watch: SS Alexander Vargas: 2-5, 2 R, K, SB — 19 year-old switch-hitter has a .324/.387/.441 slash line
  • Prospect watch: DH Antonio Gomez: 2-5, R, K — 19 year-old catcher is hitting .264/.400/.358
  • Homering: LF Madison Santos (1-4, R, HR, 3 RBI, 2 K) and 3B Marcos Cabrera (2-5, R, HR, 3 RBI, 1 K) — Santos is off to a fast start (1.220 OPS) after he struggled in Pulaski in 2019 (.658 OPS). He’s the Yankees’ 48th-best prospect, per FanGraphs. Cabrera is 30th.
  • Leftovers: CF Raimfer Salinas had two hits, a stolen base, and a caught stealing…only others to reach base cleanly were RF Jake Pries (HBP), C Agustin Ramirez (BB) and PH Hemmanuel Rosario (BB).

DSL Yankees

Yankees1 topped the Angels, 11-1 (box score). Yankees2 fell to the Pirates, 10-7 (box score).
