Today's Probables:

LHV: Severino Gonzalez
REA: Aaron Nola
CLR: Colin Kleven
LWD: Ranfi Casimiro

Lehigh Valley 6, Rochester 5 (11 innings)

Adam Morgan - 4.1 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, BB, 3 K, 2 HR, 3 GB, 3 FB
Chase d'Arnaud - 3 for 5, 2 R, 2B, RBI, BB, K
Cody Asche - 2 for 6, RBI (fielding error)
Maikel Franco - 2 for 4, R, RBI, 2 BB, K
Domonic Brown - 0 for 5, R, BB
Jordan Danks - 2 for 5, 2 RBI, K
Tyler Henson - 0 for 5, RBI

Adam Morgan delivers his worst performance of the season thus far, seeing his ERA rise nearly a full run from 3.60 to 4.35. The bullpen and offense helped bail him out. The former gave 6.1 scoreless innings of relief. Adam Loewen was credited with the win and Seth Rosin picks up his 2nd save. Franco with a huge game and even delivered the game tying RBI single in the 7th. He walks twice (!!), though one was intentional. d'Arnaud had the go-ahead RBI double in the 11th to put the Iron Pigs ahead.

Reading 2, Erie 0

Ben Lively - 7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, BB, 5 K, 8 GB, 6 FB
Stephen Shackleford - 1.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, K
Roman Quinn - 2 for 4, R, SB
KC Serna - 1 for 4, K
Brock Stassi - 2 for 3, 2B, RBI sac fly
Art Charles - 0 for 4
Cam Perkins - 1 for 3, HR
Brian Pointer - 0 for 3
Gabriel Lino - 0 for 2, BB, 2 K

Lively bounces back from his worst start of the season last week, with arguably his best. He is 3-0 on the season with a 3.06 ERA. Stephen "Rusty" Shackleford gets his 7th save and is 7 for 8 in save opportunities. Roman Quinn returns to the lineup on his birthday and steals his 16th base of the season. For those keeping count at home, that leads the Eastern League by 5 steals. Lino's woeful return to the lineup continues.

Charlotte 5, Clearwater 1

Victor Arano - 5 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, HR, 2 GB, 3 FB
Harold Guerrero - 2.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 2 K, WP
Ulises Joaquin - 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB, K
J.P. Crawford - 0 for 3, BB, K
Andrew Pullin - 2 for 4, K (outfield assist, home)
Andrew Knapp - 0 for 4, 3 K
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 3, R, BB, K
Chace Numata - 1 for 3, BB
Aaron Brown - 0 for 4, K
Willians Astudillo - 1 for 4, RBI
Mitch Walding - 0 for 4, 2 K
Drew Stankiewicz - 2 for 3

Perhaps the Threshers aren't feeling all that well still? They did collect 6 hits in the game, but struggled to bring them home. Victor Arano gets roughed up yet again. He has 1 quality start in 5 starts this season. After hitting in his first 5 games, Crawford is now hitless in his last 3.

Lakewood 5, Kannapolis 4 (10 innings)

Tyler Viza - 6 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 9 K, HR, 2 GB, 3 FB
Austin Davis - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, K
Matt Hockenberry - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K
Alexis Rivero - 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 K
Malquin Canelo - 3 for 5, 2 R, 2B, K (missed catch error)
Cord Sandberg - 1 for 5, K
Carlos Tocci - 2 for 5, 3B, 2 RBI
Rhys Hoskins - 0 for 4, R, BB, K
Deivi Grullon - 0 for 4, K
Jiandido Tromp - 3 for 4, 2 R, 2B, 2 3B, RBI, K (outfield assist, 3B)
Herlis Rodriguez - 1 for 2, RBI sac fly, SB, HBP
Derek Campbell - 0 for 4, 2 K
Grenny Cumana - 0 for 3, BB

Tyler Viza strikes out a career high 9 batters. His previous high was 7 from last season. Tromp has himself a HUGE game and was responsible for the tying run to score in the 7th. He had tripled and was able to score on a throwing error. That was of course his 2nd triple of the day. Hoskins goes hitless, but still reaches base. He's failed to reach base only 3 times in 32 games this season. Hockenberry gets the win and Rivero picks up his 1st save. Despite a cold spell there, Carlos Tocci is still hitting .349/.418/.460 in 126 at bats with 9 stolen bases (no CS).
