Today's Probables:

CLR: Victor Arano
LWD: Tyler Viza

Columbus 3, Lehigh Valley 2 (12 innings)

Phillippe Aumont - 7 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 7 K, WP, 6 GB, 5 FB
Tyler Knigge - 1.1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER (throwing error)
Colton Murray - 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 2 K, HR
Hector Neris - 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, K
Brian Bogusevic - 2 for 6, R, K
Cody Asche - 1 for 5, K
Maikel Franco - 2 for 4, RBI, BB
Russ Canzler - 0 for 4, BB, 4 K
Domonic Brown - 1 for 5, RBI
Tyler Henson - 0 for 4, K, HBP

I think I joked a few weeks ago that we should be cautiously optimistic on Aumont. Now, we might be entering the reality that Aumont has finally figured it out and can be a viable MLB-caliber pitcher (a starting one at that). It's time to throw caution to the wind during a season such as this. Franco works his first walk since April 20 and delivered an RBI single in the bottom of the 10th to extend the game after the Clippers hit a HR off Murray in the top of the inning. Knigge initially blew the save in the top of the 9th via his own throwing error. A fun thing to note, though this team may be 10-24 and somehow worse than its parent club, they still brought in an estimated 10,100 fans last night. Great fans in the Lehigh Valley area.

Harrisburg 4, Reading 3

Tom Windle - 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 5 K, 5 GB, 5 FB
Mike Nesseth - 1.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, HR
Hoby Milner - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB
KC Serna - 1 for 4, R, BB
Brock Stassi - 1 for 3, RBI sac fly
Aaron Altherr - 1 for 3, 2B, RBI, BB
Art Charles - 0 for 3, BB, K
Gabriel Lino - 0 for 4, 3 K
Brian Pointer - 1 for 3, HR, BB, K
Cam Perkins - 1 for 1 (pinch hitter)

Tom Windle's line looks a bit worse run-wise than it appears. He left two inherited runners for Mike Nesseth in the 6th inning with no outs and both came around to score. Nevertheless, Windle didn't have great control, throwing only 50 of his 91 pitches for strikes. Roman Quinn gets the night off before his 22nd birthday (he did PR and field an inning). Altherr hits another RBI double and walks. In his last 10 games he has 3 2B, 3B, 3 HR, 2 SB, 3 BB, 6 K and is batting .325/.364/.675 in 44 plate appearances. Lino in his two games from coming off the DL is 0 for 8 with 5 strikeouts. Pointer hits his 4th HR, but is batting a pathetic .193. I didn't think he would struggle this much.

Charlotte 5, Clearwater 0 (Game 1 of doubleheader, 7 innings)

Brandon Leibrandt - 5 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 2 HR, 3 GB, 2 FB (pickoff error)
Reinier Roibal - 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 K
J.P Crawford - 0 for 3
Andrew Pullin - 0 for 3
Andrew Knapp - 0 for 1, 2 BB, K
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 3
Willians Astudillo - 0 for 2
Mitch Walding - 0 for 2, K
Aaron Brown - 0 for 2
Drew Stankiewicz - 0 for 2, K
Chase Harris - 0 for 2

If you do the math, you can see the Threshers were held hitless by starter Buddy Borden in the short game. It was 1 error and 2 walks from being a perfect (shortened) game. Leibrandt disappoints for the first time in 2015, getting hurt by two 2-run homeruns in the 3rd and 5th innings. Reinier Roibal (his first name is fun because its the same backwards!) has thrown 11.2 innings, giving up 13 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks (one intentional) and striking out 11. He is 26 years old and should likely be playing in a much higher league.

Charlotte 1, Clearwater 0 (Game 2 of doubleheader, 7 innings, makeup of 5/11 ppd)

Yacksel Rios - 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 K, 6 GB, 4 FB
Edubray Ramos - 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 K
J.P. Crawford - 0 for 2, BB, SB (throwing error)
Andrew Pullin - 0 for 3
Andrew Knapp - 0 for 3
Willians Astudillo - 0 for 2
Aaron Brown - 1 for 2, BB
Devin Lohman - 0 for 2, K (throwing error)
Angelo Mora - 0 for 2
Jose Moyorga - 0 for 2
Chase Harris - 0 for 2

Yacksel Rios with a brilliant effort that goes to waste. If it weren't for Aaron Brown's hit single in the 2nd, I would have thought someone stole the Thresher's bats. Brown even picked up a walk for crying out loud! What a weird day. Crawford takes his first stolen base of the season, but commits a throwing error in the top of the 7th allowing a two-out runner to score to put the Stone Crabs ahead.
