Clearwater had the day off, but that didn't stop Phinley from bombarding me with texts all day. Also, I'm excited about Adam Morgan again.

US PRESSWIRE

Lehigh Valley 4, Charlotte 1

Adam Morgan - 5 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 5 K, HR, 2 GB, 3 FB
Freddy Galvis - 2 for 4, 2B, 2 RBI, K
Steve Susdorf - 2 for 5, RBI, K, SB
Cody Overbeck - 2 for 4, HR, K
Leandro Castro - 2 for 4
Tyson Gillies - 0 for 3, K (outfield assist)

Adam Morgan keeps getting stronger and stronger since his return. His only run allowed was a solo home run in the bottom of the 3rd. Freddy's bat has come alive in August (8 for 25 with 4 being extra base hits). Overbeck with his 3rd straight game with a homer. Lehigh is 2 games out of the wildcard lead.

Reading 4, Harrisburg 3

Mario Hollands - 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 7 K, 7 GB, 4 FB
Austin Wright - 0.1 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 2 ER, BB, K
Albert Cartwright - 2 for 5, 2B, RBI, 2 K (two fielding errors)
Zach Collier - 2 for 6, R, K
Maikel Franco - 1 for 5, R, K
Kelly Dugan - 1 for 5, HR, 3 K
Sebastian Valle - 1 for 5, 2B, RBI, K
Anthony Hewitt - 0 for 3, 3 K

What a wild game. This game featured a matchup of AJ Cole (a Nationals top pitching prospect) and Mario Hollands. AJ Cole wound up going 7 innings giving up only 1 run (a Dugan HR) on 4 hits and striking out 10. Hollands wasn't as commanding, but was quite impressive. His control was a little off, but he got the job done giving up only 1 hit in his 6 innings. Because of an Austin Wright meltdown the Fightins' were heading for a loss, but in the top of the 9th they were able to tie the score after the first 3 batters singled (scoring a run) and a Sebastian Valle fielders choice allowed the tying run to score. Reading would eventually go onto win via an Albert Cartwright sacrifice fly.

Hagerstown 3, Lakewood 0

Jonathan Musser - 6 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 8 GB, 4 FB
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 4, K
Larry Greene - 1 for 4, 2 K
Willie Carmona - 1 for 3, 2B, BB
Mitch Walding - 0 for 3
Brian Pointer - 0 for 2, BB, 2 K

Lakewood gets 2 hit by Hagerstown and go on to lose. Jonathan Musser with a decent outing, but his walk totals remain high and somehow didn't strike out a batter all game. They will look to salvage the series with a win tonight.

Tri-City 10, Williamsport 2

Yacksel Rios - 3.2 IP, 3 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 5 GB, 3 FB
Gustavo Martinez - 1 for 4, R, K, SB (outfield assist)
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 4, 3B, 2 K
Gabriel Lino - 0 for 4, 2 K
Zach Green - 1 for 4, 2B
Dylan Cozens - 1 for 4, 2B, RBI, 2 K
Logan Pierce - 1 for 3, HR

Ugly game for Rios and the bullpen, giving up 10 runs on 14 hits. The offense wasn't much better other than a Pierce HR, a Cozens RBI double and no strikeouts for Green. Williamsport plays the 2nd game of the series with Tri-City this morning at 11 AM.

GCL Phillies 7, GCL Braves 6

Alejandro Arteaga - 4 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 5 GB, 3 FB
Herlis Rodriguez - 0 for 4, BB, K (throwing error)
Cord Sandberg - 1 for 3, 2 R, 2B, BB
JP Crawford - 3 for 4, 2 R, HR, 4 RBI, BB
Wilmer Oberto - 2 for 4, HR, 3 RBI
Jose Pujols - 1 for 5, K, CS

The GCL Phils go on to win despite a late surge from the GCL Braves, who put up 2 runs to come within 1 of tying it all up. JP Crawford continues to catapult himself into consideration of being among the most promising prospects in the game. He leads the GCL in both AVG and OBP. He steals bases and just hit his first professional HR. Oberto meanwhile showing he has nothing left to prove in the GCL. He leads the GCL in both HR and SLG%.
