Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders
Yesterday’s game against Rochester was rained out. They’ll play a doubleheader starting at 5:05pm today.
Double-A Somerset Patriots
The Patriots topped the Yard Goats 1-0 behind a brilliant seven innings from Luis Medina and good work from the bullpen (box score).
- Starting pitcher: RHP Luis Medina: 7.0 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K, 1 WP — 64 of 92 pitches were strikes (70%) — Three of his five strikeouts came in the first two innings. Didn’t have the swing-and-miss going like his last two outings (22 strikeouts in 10 innings), but it didn’t matter.
- In relief: RHP Addison Russ: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K — 11 of 12 pitches were strikes (92%)
- In relief: RHP Nick Ernst: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K — 13 of 21 pitches were strikes (62%)
- Prospect watch: SS Oswald Peraza: 1-3, RBI, BB, K — His single in the third drove in the lone run of the game.
- Prospect watch: CF Brandon Lockridge: 1-3, BB, K, SB — He’s swiped 9 bags in 10 attempts from Somerset…Was 5-for-6 with Hudson Valley.
- Prospect watch: 2B Oswaldo Cabrera: 1-3, 2B, BB, K, CS — He’s an extra base machine…needs just one more to reach 50 on the season.
- Leftovers: As a 1-0 final score indicates, there wasn’t much offense to go around. The only others to reach base were LF Michael Beltre (two walks), 1B Dermis García (hit by pitch), and RF Thomas Milone (single).
