Today's Probables:
LHV: Joely Rodriguez
REA: Ben Lively
CLR: Matt Imhof
LWD: Elneiry Garcia

Syracuse 5, Lehigh Valley 4

Paul Clemens - 6 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 2 ER, BB, 2 K, 6 GB, 5 FB, WP
Mike Nesseth - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, WP
Cesar Jimenez - 2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 2 K
Darin Mastroianni - 2 for 5, R, K, SB, CS
Tyler Henson - 1 for 3, R, 2B, BB, K, SB (fielding and  throwing error)
Brian Bogusevic - 2 for 4, RBI, K
Russ Canzler - 1 for 2, HR

Iron Pigs lose this despite being up a run entering the top of the 9th. Poor pitching from Cesar and a costly Henson error doomed hopes of a win that didn't have Franco and Joseph in the lineup. Franco seems to be getting the Jimmy treatment. Paul Clemens wasn't a complete disaster and Nesseth pitched a scoreless inning of relief. Russ Canzler hits his 1st dinger of the season.

New Hampshire 4, Reading 3

Tom Windle - 6 IP, 9 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 4 K, HR, 5 GB, 4 FB
Elvis Araujo - 2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, HR
Roman Quinn - 3 for 4, R, 2B, 3B, RBI, CS, picked off
Carlos Alonso - 0 for 5, RBI
Brock Stassi - 2 for 4, BB
Cam Perkins - 0 for 3, HBP (outfield assist, 2B)
Brian Pointer - 1 for 2, HR, BB, K
Art Charles - 2 for 3, R

The ghost of Jake Fox lives on...hitting two homeruns in the game, one of them being a 3-run shot in the bottom of the 8th to put NH up for good. Tom Windle makes his Phillies org debut and puts forth a solid effort, throwing 54 of his 85 pitches for strikes. Ben Badler of Baseball America said Windle's stuff has already shown improvement from last season. Roman Quinn falls a HR short of the cycle and his batting .400/.438/.800 through 15 AB's. Brian Pointer hits a solo shot in the 6th inning.

Jupiter 8, Clearwater 1

Colin Kleven - 5 IP, 11 H, 7 R, 7 ER, BB, 3 K, 5 GB, 5 FB, 2 HBP
Lino Martinez - 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, K
Ulises Joaquin - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Domonic Brown - 2 for 3, RBI (outfield assist, 3B)
Andrew Knapp - 0 for 4
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 4, 2 K (fielding error)
Zach Green - 1 for 4
Aaron Brown - 1 for 4
Willians Astudillo - 1 for 3, HBP

Colin Kleven is roughed up a bit in his first start. Kleven also had a notably bad April in 2014. Domonic Brown with the lone two-hit game for the Threshers. Cozens with a miserable game all-around. Hopefully this team will get J.P. Crawford back in the lineup in a few weeks. Astudillo has gotten off to a curiously bad start to begin the season.

Lakewood 4, Greensboro 1

Chris Oliver - 5 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 7 GB, 1 FB
Austin Davis - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB
Matt Hockenberry - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, K
Malquin Canelo - 2 for 4, 2 R, 2B
Jiandido Tromp - 3 for 3, R, 3B, BB
Carlos Tocci - 2 for 3, 3 RBI, BB, SB
Rhys Hoskins - 0 for 4, K
Cord Sandberg - 0 for 4, R
Deivi Grullon - 1 for 4
Damek Tomscha - 1 for 4, RBI, K, SB

2014 4th Round Draft choice, Chris Oliver, had a disastrous debut after being drafted last season. Everything he threw was hit-able.  There was no guarantee the Phillies would even try him still as a starter, though thankfully it looks like he is receiving another opportunity. He made the most of it yesterday. He did allow a run in the 1st, but wound up striking out the side swinging in the 2nd. Hockenberry locked down his first save. Jiandido finally breaks out for a 3-hit night. Carlos Tocci remains red hot, batting 7 for 18 with 3 stolen bases. Tocci could easily be in Clearwater by mid-summer.
