Phillies Minor League Roundup - July 23, 2014

Today's Probables: LHV: Brad Lincoln, REA: Ryan O'Sullivan, CLR: Miguel Nunez, LWD: Jon Prosinski, WIL: Feliberto Sanchez

Pawtucket 3, Lehigh Valley 2 (suspended in the bottom of the 4th due to weather and will resume today)

I'll give a full rundown of this game tomorrow after it is completed.

Erie 6, Reading 1

Severino Gonzalez - 4 IP, 13 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 2 BB, K, 2 HR, 1 GB, 5 FB
Kyle Simon - 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 K, 3 GB, 3 FB, WP
Seth Rosin - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R
Peter Lavin - 3 for 4, 2B, RBI, CS
Kelly Dugan - 0 for 4, 2 K
Carlos Alonso - 1 for 4, K
Brock Stassi - 3 for 4
Zach Collier - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K

What the heck Sev? Two disastrous starts in a row for the 22 year old righty. It was the first time he walked more than 1 batter since June 7. Opponents are now batting .282 against him on the season. He and Hoby Milner are tied for the league lead (19) for homers allowed. Peter Lavin raises his Reading average to .273, but is barely walking in AA. His power numbers are up, but that is most likely a product of playing in Reading. If only Kyle Simon could repeat this AA success at the AAA level...

Charlotte 10, Clearwater 6

Colin Kleven - 5 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 5 K, HR, 2 GB, 5 FB
Cody Forsythe - 2 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 3 ER, BB, 3 K, HR
Ramon Oviedo - 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, K
Lee Ridenhour - 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, K, WP
Roman Quinn - 1 for 3, RBI, BB, K, SB
Angelo Mora - 2 for 4, 3B, 2 RBI, BB, picked off
JP Crawford - 1 for 4, 2B, BB
Brian Pointer - 0 for 5, 3 K, SB (throwing error and outfield assist, 2B)
Harold Martinez - 3 for 4, 2 R, 2B, HBP
Gabriel Lino - 3 for 4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI, BB, K

Colin Kleven gave up 2 runs in each of the 5th and 6th inning before being pulled. It was a solid effort, walking no batters, but obviously gave up too many hits. Cody Forsythe is tagged for the loss in what is his worst outing of the year across two levels. Roman Quinn steals his 13th base and his 8th in the last 10 games. The speed is definitely coming back in a big way for Quinn. Lino launches his 3rd homer of the season. Brian Pointer with the big 0fer, his first error of the season and a golden sombrero, but manages to steal his 7th base and an outfield assist. Harold Martinez is absolutely on fire right now and has been solid overall since a slow beginning to the season. In his last 185 at bats he is slashing .286/.323/.405 with a .360 BABIP. That is pretty good. The expected power is nowhere to be found, but the guy is actually hitting.

Greenville 9, Lakewood 2

Yoel Mecias - 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, K, HR, 9 GB, 4 FB
Julio Reyes - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB
Daniel Child - 1 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 3 K, 2 WP
Matt Hockenberry - 0.2 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB
Carlos Tocci - 1 for 3, R, BB, K, picked off
Andrew Pullin - 2 for 4, R, 3B, RBI
Andrew Knapp - 0 for 3, BB
Zach Green - 1 for 4, 2B, RBI, 2 K (throwing error)
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 4, K
Willians Astudillo - 0 for 3, BB
Mitch Walding - 1 for 2, 2B, 2 BB, K
Samuel Hiciano - 0 for 4, K

That is now 2 Lakewood starts for Mecias in which he went 5 innings and has given up only 2 hits in each. He didn't walk anyone this time out, but he also didn't strike out 7 like in his debut. Matt Hockenberry gets absolutely destroyed. It's good to see Tocci working a walk out of the leadoff spot. Andrew Pullin is slashing .333/.435/.410 in his last 10 games and has more walks than strikeouts. Pullin, Tocci and Walding are all seeing the ball very well these days.

Williamsport 3, Batavia 0

Brandon Leibrandt - 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, 5 K, 6 GB, 4 FB
Richard Bielski - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R
Scott Harris - 1 IP, 3 H, 0 R
Bryan Sova - 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R
Derek Campbell - 2 for 4, 2 R, 2B, 3B
Jiandido Tromp - 0 for 3, RBI, K
Aaron Brown - 1 for 3, BB
Rhys Hoskins - 1 for 4, RBI, K
Matt Shortall - 1 for 4, R, 3B, 2 K
Cord Sandberg - 0 for 4, 3 K (outfield assist, 3B)
Deivi Grullon - 1 for 4, 2B, RBI, 2 K
Drew Stankiewicz - 0 for 3
Emmanuel Marrero - 1 for 2, HBP

6th round 2014 draftee Leibrandt has been dominant in his first two starts with Williamsport. The tall lefty is holding opponents to a .128 average and has a 12:2 strikeout to walk ratio in 12 innings. Derek Campbell added his 17th and 18th extra base hit this season. He is slugging .513 in 115 at bats. The only hitters really seeing the ball well lately are Campbell, Tromp, Brown and Stankiewicz.
