Something is Eflin' wrong!

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Today's Probables:

LHV: Phillippe Aumont
REA: Tom Windle
CLR G1: Brandon Leibrandt
CLR G2: Yacksel Rios

Lehigh Valley 6, Columbus 5

David Buchanan - 6.2 IP, 10 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 4 K, HR, HBP, 10 GB, 3 FB
Seth Rosin - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, K
Cesar Jimenez - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, K
Brian Bogusevic - 2 for 4, 2 R, BB
Cody Asche - 2 for 2, R, 3 BB
Maikel Franco - 2 for 4, 3 RBI
Russ Canzler - 1 for 4, R (fielding error)
Domonic Brown - 2 for 4, R, 3B, 2 RBI, K
Jordan Danks - 1 for 3, RBI, BB, K

Buchanan was effective, but hittable. Cody Asche playing LF in this game as he learns the position without the weight and visibility at the major league level. The guy that will most assuredly replace him at 3B in the big leagues, Maikel Franco, had another two his last night. His 2 RBI single in the bottom of ninth was the walkoff win. Dom Brown with his 5th multi-hit game in Lehigh Valley. He has been hitting the ball well as of late.

Harrisburg 4, Reading 1

Zach Eflin - 6 IP, 9 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, HR, WP, 8 GB, 4 FB
Nefi Ogando - 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, K
Roman Quinn - 2 for 4, R, K, SB
KC Serna - 1 for 4, K
Aaron Altherr - 1 for 4
Brock Stassi - 2 for 4, RBI
Cam Perkins - 0 for 3, BB (outfield assist, home)
Gabriel Lino - 0 for 4, 2 K

Eflin his hit hard for the second start in a row. You are seeing hitters make adjustments to Eflin, now it's his turn to do the same. Roman Quinn with two more hits to bring his average to .322 and steals his 15th base. Gabriel Lino returns from the DL, but goes hitless. Stassi still relentlessly keeps hitting baseballs.

Charlotte 8, Clearwater 2 (Game 1 of doubleheader, 7 innings)

David Whitehead - 5 IP, 8 H, 7 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 2 HR, 9 GB, 3 FB
Cody Forsythe - 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 K, HR
J.P Crawford - 1 for 3, R, BB (fielding error)
Andrew Pullin - 0 for 4, K
Andrew Knapp - 1 for 4, K
Dylan Cozens - 2 for 4, RBI, K
Willians Astudillo - 2 for 4
Aaron Brown - 0 for 4, 2 K
Mitch Walding - 1 for 3, R, 2B, K
Angelo Mora - 2 for 3
Chase Harris - 2 for 3, RBI

David Whitehead produces his worst outing of the season as the Threshers fall in what would be their only game of the day. Whitehead picks up loss number 4 and sees his ERA rise from 3.28 to 3.76. A costly 1st inning error by Crawford, which would have been the third out, led to a 3-run homer in the following at bat. Crawford however reached the base-paths in half of his at bats and is slashing .500/.640/.667 in 18 at bats. Cozens had a 2-out RBI for his 20th of the season, which leads the team. The Threshers left 10 men on base in the game.

Clearwater, Charlotte (Game 2 of doubleheader, ppd due to rain)

Lakewood 9, Asheville 5

Josh Taylor - 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, WP, 7 GB, 3 FB (throwing error)
Jason Zgardowski - 1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 K, WP, HBP
Scott Harris - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, K
Jesen Therrien - 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, K
Herlis Rodriguez - 2 for 4, HR, BB, picked off
Chace Numata - 2 for 5, 2 R (throwing error and passed ball)
Carlos Tocci - 1 for 4, 2 R, BB
Rhys Hoskins - 3 for 5, 2 R, 3B, HR, 4 RBI, K
Deivi Grullon -1 for 5, R, RBI
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 3, RBI, BB, SB
Damek Tomscha - 1 for 3, R, 2B, BB, K
Derek Campbell - 1 for 4, 2B, 2 RBI
Grenny Cumana - 0 for 3, K

Lakewood blasts Asheville for 12 hits en route to the victory. Josh Taylor with a much better go around this time out and makes it out of the first inning. Herlis Rodriguez has been back in the lineup as of recently and hit his 2nd HR of the season last night. Carlos Tocci also reaches base twice last night. Rhys Hoskins has been putting on a show in Lakewood all season. The young first baseman slugged his 5th homer and 2nd triple of the season. He is batting .331/.409/.544 on the season. I'm not sure how long Zach Green is on the DL for, but there is an open spot at 1B in Clearwater...
