Quinnless and embarrassed pharm is held to only 2 extra base hits yesterday. On the brightside....AARON NOLA TODAY!!

Adam Morgan looks like such a likable fella.

Today's Probables:

LHV: Paul Clemens
REA: Aaron Nola
CLR: Miguel Nunez
LWD: Tyler Viza

Scranton/WB 3, Lehigh Valley 2

Adam Morgan - 7 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 K, 9 GB, 4 FB
Seth Rosin - 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, K
Brian Bogusevic - 2 for 5, K
Maikel Franco - 1 for 4, K
Domonic Brown - 1 for 3, R, BB, K
Tommy Joseph - 0 for 4, RBI

The IronPigs were held without an extra base-hit and Adam Morgan is pegged with the loss. Morgan has slowly improved his endurance, increasing his innings pitched from 4 to 7 between his first and last start. The best thing was to see no walks and a nice GB/FB ratio. Despite the RBI in this one, Joseph continues to find his footing at the plate. He is batting a woeful .118 in 34 at bats with 8 strikeouts.

Akron 2, Reading 0

Ben Lively - 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 5 K, 7 GB, 5 FB
Ethan Stewart - 3 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 3 K, HR
Roman Quinn - 0 for 2, CS
Brock Stassi - 1 for 1, 2B
Aaron Altherr - 0 for 3, BB, K
Cam Perkins - 0 for 4
Gabriel Lino - 0 for 3, K
Brian Pointer - 0 for 2, BB, 2 K

Ben Lively gets a no-decision in a truly great effort because Reading failed to even record a hit during his time on the mound. Reading was nearly no-hit by Akron, but pinch-hitter Brock Stassi was able to hit a one-out double in the bottom of the ninth to break it up. Roman Quinn is ejected in this one for throwing his helmet in disgust after a bad call. Anyway, yay for Lively!

Tampa 9, Clearwater 4

Victor Arano - 5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, K, 7 GB, 3 FB (pickoff error)
Lee Ridenhour - 1.1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER
Cody Forsythe - 0.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 ER, BB
Kevin Walter - 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 2 K
Andrew Pullin - 0 for 4, BB, K
Andrew Knapp - 1 for 5, R, RBI, K
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 5, 4 K
Willians Astudillo - 2 for 4, K, CS (passed ball)
Aaron Brown - 1 for 4, BB, K
Zach Green - 1 for 4, 2 K

Hey, Victor Arano is back! Yeah, that other guy we got for Roberto Hernandez. He was cruising through 4 shutout innings of 2 hit ball until he struggled in the 5th. However, lots of groundball outs for Arano. He is a sleeper that could surprise people this year. He isn't talked about as much as the SP in Reading, but he is right there with Windle/Lively in my opinion. The bullpen was the equivalent of a poop emoji. The offense really was no better. Cozens dances around his golden sombrero and someone let Astudillo try and steal a base. 

Greensboro 6, Lakewood 0

Josh Taylor - 5 IP, 10 H, 5 R, 5 ER, BB, 7 K, 2 HR, 2 GB, 2 FB
Alexis Rivero - 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, HR
Calvin Rayburn - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB
Malquin Canelo - 0 for 2, 2 BB
Carlos Tocci - 1 for 3, HBP
Rhys Hoskins - 0 for 4, 2 K
Cord Sandberg - 0 for 3, BB
Herlis Rodriguez - 1 for 3, K, CS (outfield assist, 1B)
Derek Campbell - 0 for 3, K
Grenny Cumana - 0 for 3

Josh Taylor's line is a bit deceiving as he was mostly on point yesterday. He just imploded...a little in the first inning, giving up a leadoff homer, 3 singles and a double, but was able to strikeout the side (not in order obviously). He'd give up another solo HR in the second inning, but that would be it for innings 3 through 5. The offense was three-hit over the game by Marlins top prospects Tyler Kolek and a few relievers. Tocci extends his hit streak to 9 games and is the only noteworthy thing to mention about the offense.
