Phillies Minor League Roundup, August 7, 2013

Sun setting at Williamsport

Charlotte 4, Lehigh Valley 0

Tom Cochran - 4 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 5 BB, K, 1 GB, 4 FB
Phillippe Aumont - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB, K
Mauricio Robles - 1 IP, 0 R, 2 K
Freddy Galvis - 0 for 4, K
Steve Susdorf - 1 for 4, K
Cody Overbeck - 1 for 3, 2B, BB
Leandro Castro - 0 for 4, K
Tyler Henson - 2 for 3, BB, K
Cameron Rupp - 0 for 4, 2 K
Tyson Gillies - 0 for 4, 2 K

Pretty awful game all around for the IronPigs. Lehigh had only 5 hits all game, while striking out 11 times as a team. They also go 0 for 8 with RISP. Cochran has been bad all season and in his last 5 games he has taken the loss. He sits at 3-10 on the season with a 5.68 ERA. He gives up more hits than innings pitched and walks a ton of guys. Tyson Gillies is a complete mess.

Harrisburg 3, Reading 2

Seth Rosin - 5 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 6 K, 2 GB, 1 FB
Matt Tolbert - 1 for 4
Maikel Franco - 0 for 3, BB
Jim Murphy - 1 for 3, BB
Kelly Dugan - 1 for 3, BB, K
Anthony Hewitt - 1 for 4, K, CS, picked off
Justin Dalles - 1 for 4, R, 2B, K
Troy Hanzawa - 1 for 3, R, 2B, RBI, K

Franco has cooled off quite a bit (last 10 games .179/.214/.282). Seth Rosin with a decent outing, though the offense wasn't able to bail him out.

Clearwater 6, Daytona 5

Nic Hanson - 3 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, HR, 5 GB, 2 FB
Jiwan James - 1 for 5, RBI, 2 K, SB
Carlos Alonso - 1 for 3, R, RBI, BB
Aaron Altherr - 0 for 3, R, BB, K
Chris Serritella - 1 for 3, HR, 2 BB
Cameron Perkins - 0 for 5
Brock Stassi - 3 for 5, R, 2 2B, 2 RBI
Jonathan Roof - 2 for 5, R, 2 SB
Harold Martinez - 2 for 3, R, RBI, 2 BB, K, SB

A ton of offense this game. Both teams combined for 23 hits and 37 base runners. The conversion rate for both teams with RISP wasn't very sightly (combined 4 for 26). The game went into extra innings after Clearwater tied it up in the bottom of the 8th. In the bottom of the 10th, Roof would lead off with a single and Martinez would draw a walk. Both would steal 3rd and 2nd, respectively, before a Jiwan James fielder's choice would score Roof for the winning run. This was Hanson's first start with Clearwater after being promoted from Lakewood. He wasn't nearly as sharp has he has been.

Lakewood 6, Hagerstown 1

Jeb Stefan - 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 4 K, 6 GB, 5 FB
Brian Pointer - 1 for 3, RBI, 2 BB, K
Larry Greene - 1 for 5, RBI, 3 K
Willie Carmona - 1 for 5, R, 2B
Art Charles - 1 for 5, R, 3 K
Mitch Walding - 1 for 4, R, RBI
Alejandro Villalobos - 2 for 4, 2B, 3B, 2 RBI
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 4, R, K

Lakewood dominated the game and would win easily behind a solid Stefan performance. Since becoming a starter, Stefan has had his ups and downs. He has shown some ability to make batters swing and miss, but still gives up a fair share of hits. Everyone on offense contributed hits aside from Tocci. I understand Tocci at this level (somewhat) holding his own is impressive, but he still has a long way to go and should repeat Lakewood again next season.

Tri-City 8, Williamsport 7

Julio Reyes - 4 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 2 GB, 4 FB
Andrew Pullin - 2 for 5, R, 3B, RBI, 2 K
Andrew Knapp - 2 for 5, 2 HR, K
Zach Green - 2 for 5, 2B, HR, 2 K
Dylan Cozens - 1 for 4, HR, 2 RBI, 2 K
Gabriel Lino - 2 for 4, K
Jiandido Tromp - 2 for 4, 2B, HR, 2 K (outfield assist)

A monster power surge this game couldn't help the eventual outcome for the Crosscutters. Julio Reyes left the bullpen in good shape in a tie game. The game would go back and forth and have 5 lead changes before a walkoff 2 run homer in the bottom of the 9th would settle it.

GCL Yankees2 6, GCL Phillies 4 (Game 1 of double header)

Jesen Therrien - 4 IP, 3 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 5 BB, 2 K, HR, 5 GB, 4 FB
Cord Sandberg - 0 for 4, R, 2 RBI, SB
JP Crawford - 2 for 3, 2 RBI, BB
Wilmer Oberto - 2 for 3, BB
Jose Pujols - 0 for 3, 2 K
Jan Hernandez - 0 for 3, 3 K (fielding error)

Yikes, Therrien can go from good to awful fairly frequently. In his 4 good appearances he has gone 18 innings of 2 run (0 earned) ball. In his 4 bad appearances he has gone 7.1 innings giving up 22 runs (17 earned). Kind of odd really. He walks a ton of batters and doesn't strike anyone out. Swooning over Crawford and Oberto as they continue to dominate.

GCL Phillies 2, GCL Yankees 2 0 (Game 2 of double header, make up of 7/23 pdd)

Tyler Viza - 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 2 K, 7 GB, 1 FB
Mark Leiter - 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB, K, 4 GB, 1 FB
Herlis Rodriguez - 1 for 3, 2B, BB, K
Cord Sandberg - 0 for 4, 2 K
Nick Ferdinand - 1 for 4, R, 2B, 2 K
Wilmer Oberto - 0 for 3, RBI
Robinson Torres - 0 for 2, R, BB, K, 2 SB
Jair Morelos - 3 for 3, 2B, RBI

Impressive outing from Viza and Leiter. Leiter has been lights out since joining the GCL. He is showing the ability to strike out guys (26 in 23 IP) and allowing minimal walks (7 in 23 IP). He is a guy to keep an eye on. Jair Morelos spelled Crawford at SS in the 2nd game of the DH. I guess JP's magic carried over.
