Nola fought valiantly, Nola fought nobly, Nola fought honorably. And Nola lost.

Today's Probables:

LHV: Joely Rodriguez
REA: Jesse Biddle
CLR: Colin Kleven
LWD: Ranfi Casimiro

Buffalo 11, Lehigh Valley 1

Paul Clemens - 5.2 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, HR, 7 GB, 2 FB
Tyler Knigge - 1.1 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB
Domonic Brown - 0 for 4
Maikel Franco - 2 for 4, R
Russ Canzler - 1 for 3, BB, K
Jordan Danks - 1 for 4, 2B
Tommy Joseph - 2 for 4, RBI

Clemens has now allowed 14 hits and 11 walks in 14.2 innings this season. He is what you would call a not very good pitcher. Knigge imploded in spectacular fashion and hasn't been sharp to begin the season. Bright spots are obviously another multi-hit game for Franco (8 in 14 games) and Joseph with his first multi-hit game of the season.

Harrisburg 3, Reading 0

Aaron Nola - 7 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 6 K, 6 GB, 5 FB
Elvis Araujo - 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, K (pickoff error)
Roman Quinn - 1 for 4, 2B
Carlos Alonso - 2 for 4, K
Aaron Altherr - 1 for 4, 2B
Brock Stassi - 0 for 4
Cam Perkins - 0 for 4
Gabriel Lino - 2 for 4, K (throwing error)
KC Serna - 0 for 1, 2 BB, CS (fielding error)

Nola had a rough 1st inning, allowing a triple and two singles (along with a costly Lino throwing error) to allow his only two runs. Besides that, he was his usual dominant self, lowering his ERA to 3.06 in 17.2 IP. The Fightin's went 0 for 5 with RISP and left 7 on base in total. Quinn hits his 4th double of the season. Cam Perkins still struggling, batting .175.

Lakeland 5, Clearwater 2

Miguel Nunez - 4 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, HR, WP, 4 GB, 7 FB
Mark Leiter - 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, 8 K, 3 GB, 1 FB
Andrew Pullin - 0 for 4
Andrew Knapp - 0 for 4 (throwing error and passed ball)
Dylan Cozens - 2 for 4, R, 2B, K
Willians Astudillo - 1 for 4
Aaron Brown - 0 for 4, R, K, SB
Drew Stankiewicz - 2 for 3, CS

Miguel Nunez was doomed by a 4-run 3rd inning that included a 3-run blast. Mark Leiter nearly did a thing. The newly reborn long-man out of the pen has 18 K's, 4 BB, 3 ER , 10 H in 14 innings of work. The offense with a disappointing 0 for 9 with RISP.  Cozens is the lone standout with his 4th double of the season. 

Lakewood 4, Hagerstown 0

Tyler Viza - 7.1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K, HBP, 6 GB, 5 FB
Jesen Therrien - 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, K
Malquin Canelo - 3 for 4, R, 2 2B, K
Jiandido Tromp - 0 for 4, K
Carlos Tocci - 1 for 3, R, 2B, BB, K, SB
Damek Tomscha - 1 for 4, RBI, K
Cord Sandberg - 1 for 4, R, 2B, K
Deivi Grullon - 3 for 4, 2B, HR
Herlis Rodriguez - 1 for 4, RBI, K
Derek Campbell - 0 for 3, K
Grenny Cumana - 1 for 4

Did I mention the last week that 20 year old Viza was settling in this year? Well, he has so far, improving upon each of his last outings. One guy I probably didn't give enough credit to this offseason was Canelo, who I didn't believe would hit at the higher levels. So far he is proving me wrong and I couldn't be happier. Grullon hits his first dinger of  the season and Tocci hits double number 7 (and stole his 5th base).
