Bridgewater, NJ -- The Somerset Patriots (64-39) locked down their eighth shutout win of the season over the Hartford Yard Goats (61-42) behind a spotless start from Clayton Beeter in his Yankees organizational debut.
Beeter, who was the lone piece acquired by the Yankees in their trade of outfielder Joey Gallo, spun three hitless innings with six strikeouts, allowing only a walk with an additional batter reaching on an error.
Beeter pitched to 11 batters, totaling 25 strikes out of 37 pitches in a no-decision.

Beeter was replaced by Barrett Loseke, who tied a season-high with three scoreless innings pitched, earning his seventh win of the season to lead all active Patriots pitchers. It was also the fifth shutout of the season that Loseke has played a part in, the most of all Patriots pitcher.
The game was finished with two scoreless innings by Tanner Myatt and one scoreless inning by Steven Jennings.
Offensively, every batter in the order for Somerset had a hit and either a run scored or had a run batted in. Jeisson Rosario led the way, going 3-for-4 with a career-high-tying 4 RBI, two doubles and a home run.
Playing in his 468th career game, it was Rosario's first time having gone deep in back-to-back games, as he continues to raise his career-best mark of now eight home runs.
Blake Perkins also went deep to lead off the fourth inning with his career-high 12th home run of the season.
Perkins picked up a pair of hits in the game, as well as Mickey Gasper, Brandon Lockridge and Elijah Dunham.
