Tampa Tarpons (51-59) (Defeated Lakeland, 6-0)

CF Pablo Olivares:  0-for-2
Left the game early, so that puts an end to his 11-game hitting streak.
CF Omar Carrizales:  0-for-1, RS, BB
DH Estevan Florial 1-for-4, HR (6), 2 RBI, RS, 2 K
Back-to-back games with an HR (after hitting two triples in the game before that)

.275/.328/.472 in 36 AB (SSS!) since coming back from his rehab
3B Wilkerman Garcia2-for-4, 2 RS
He is hitting for some average (.295 in 78 AB).  He is also on a five-game hitting streak
1B Steven Sensley:  1-for-4, 2 K
C Donny Sands1-for-4, 2B (9), RBI
2B Kyle Gray 1-for-3, 2B (2), RBI, HBP, K
10-for-41 since his promotion
LF Leonardo Molina:  0-for-3, SF, RBI

RHP Clarke Schmidt: (W, 4-4)  7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 9 K
Domination.  They allowed him to throw 105 pitches (induced an inning-ending double play in the 7th with the last pitch).  The #5 prospect in the system (MLB Pipeline) now owns a 2.98 ERA in 60.1 IP with 52 hits allowed and 65/22 K/BB ratio.  By the way, I use K/BB ratio for its convenience and because I don't want to sit here and calculate an updated K%-BB%, which is a much more telling metric.
RHP Jefry Valdez:  2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

Charleston Riverdogs (57-56) (Defeated Delmarva, 11-7)

CF Brandon Lockridge:  3-for-6, 2B (28), 4 RBI, RS
Second 4 RBI game of the season
SS Oswald Peraza: 2-for-6, RBI, K
LF Canaan Smith: 1-for-4, RS, BB, HBP
Just a routine night where he reaches base three times.
RF Josh Stowers:  2-for-3, RBI, RS, 2 BB
11-game on-base streak.  48 walks in 82 games, though he also has 104 strikeouts
DH Mickey Gasper0-for-2, RS, 2 BB, HBP
1B Eric Wagaman0-for-3, RBI, RS, 2 BB, K
3B Oliver Dunn:  2-for-4, RBI, 3 RS, BB
17-for-69 since his promotion with 13 walks
C Eduardo Navas:  0-for-4, RS, BB, K
2B Eduardo Torrealba2-for-3, 2B (8), 2 RBI, 2 RS, BB, K

RHP Jhony Brito: (W, 5-3)  5 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
7 groundouts, 2 flyouts.  I point this out because Brito has one of the best GB% rates in the organization.
RHP Charlie Ruegger (S, 1):  4 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Staten Island Yankees (26-23) (Lost to Vermont, 4-3)

LF Evan Alexander:  0-for-1
DH Jake Sanford:  0-for-3, RS, BB, K
CF Pat DeMarco:  1-for-4, HR (3), 2 RBI, RS, 2 K
He is making his hits count! Three of his four professional hits have gone over the wall.
RF Juan De Leon2-for-4, HR (5), RBI, RS, K
14-for-42 in last 12 games.  As you may remember, De Leon was one of those bonus babies from 2014.  He signed for a cool $2 million.
SS David Metzgar:  0-for-3, BB, K
C Jerry Seitz:  0-for-2, BB
1B Nelson Alvarez:  1-for-2, HBP, K
3B Matt Pita:  0-for-3, 2 K

RHP Anderson Munoz:  6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 7 K
Two quick runs in the first inning – cruised from there.   He has a 3.12 ERA in 43.1 IP with 33 hits allowed and a 45/17 K/BB ratio at this level.   He was given some innings in Charleston earlier this season, where he showed off his strikeout stuff (31 K in 22 IP), but had trouble with his control (14 walks).  That was an aggressive test, as he only threw in the GCL last year.  It would be fun if the Yankees made something out of him, given that he was released from the Minnesota Twins DSL team before he ever threw a pitch for the organization.
RHP Nick Ernst (L, 0-3):  0.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
RHP Daniel Ramos:  1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

Pulaski Yankees (31-14) (Defeated Princeton, 1-0)

SS Anthony Volpe:  1-for-3, BB, CS (1)
He has hit safely in 12 of his last 14 games.
LF Antonio Cabello:  0-for-4, 2 K
.211/.266/.323 in 161 AB
CF Ryder Green:  0-for-3, RS, BB, K
3B Chad Bell:  1-for-4, 3 K
DH Saul Torres:  0-for-4, 3 K
C Gustavo Campero:  2-for-4, K, SB (7)
6-game hitting streak (13-for-25).  That is my kind of hitting streak!
RF Madison Santos:  2-for-3
1B Jose Martinez:  0-for-3, K
2B Borinquen Mendez:  0-for-3
.294/.351/.382 in 68 AB with six walks and seven strikeouts.  He is 6-for-7 stealing bases.

RHP Randy Vasquez: (W, 3-1)  6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K
2.75 ERA in 39.1 IP with 26 hits allowed and a 38/17 K/BB ratio.
RHP Elvis Peguero2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K
RHP Mitch Spence (S, 2):  1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
17.1 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 16 K
