So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye...

Today's Probables:

LHV: Adam Morgan
REA: Ben Lively
CLR: Colin Kleven
LWD: Josh Taylor

Lehigh Valley 1, Syracuse 1 (Suspended after 9 innings due to rain, completion on 5/19)

Phillippe Aumont - 6 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, HR, 6 GB, 4 FB
Dustin McGowan - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 K
Seth Rosin - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, K, WP
Tyler Henson - 1 for 4, R, 2B
Cody Asche - 0 for 4
Domonic Brown - 3 for 4, RBI, K
Jordan Danks - 0 for 4, K

Make that 27 innings as a starter with giving up 20 hits, 4 earned runs, 8 walks and 20 strikeouts. He is holding opponents to a .190 batting average overall on the season and holds a 1.10 WHIP. Everything they've done with Aumont this season is working. He could very well be working himself into a future back of the rotation starter for the Phillies. Take off the tinfoil hats, I'm buying all of it. Cody Asche is 7 for 30 with 3 walks since being demoted to play LF full-time with the IronPigs. Dom Brown has been on fire lately and has raised his average up to .267.

New Hampshire 4, Reading 1

Tom  Windle - 5 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 5 GB, 2 FB
Reinier Roibal - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, K
Tyler Knigge - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, K
Lee Ridenhour - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K
KC Serna - 1 for 3, R, BB, picked off
Brock Stassi - 0 for 4
Aaron Altherr - 1 for 4, K
Art Charles - 0 for 4, 2 K
Cam Perkins - 1 for 4
Brian Pointer - 0 for 3, BB, K
Gabriel Lino - 1 for 3
Harold Martinez - 0 for 3, K

Windle struggles once again, only throwing 47 of his 86 pitches for strikes. He is 0-3 with an ERA of 5.35 through 7 starts (35.1 innings). The offense goes cold as its missing its catalyst for the 2nd straight start. Roman Quinn jammed his thumb on a steal of 2nd base on Saturday that has forced him to sit out. There was word he would start yesterday, but was held out again. Look for him back in the lineup today.

Clearwater 2, Brevard County 1

Brandon Leibrandt - 9 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 5 K, 11 GB, 7 FB (2 balks)
Angelo Mora - 1 for 4, R, 3B, 2 K
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 4, 2B, RBI
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 4, R, K
Willians Astudillo - 1 for 3, HBP
Aaron Brown - 0 for 4
Mitch Walding - 1 for 4, RBI
Drew Stankiewicz - 1 for 3, 2 K
Chase Harris - 1 for 3

Leibrandt pitches a gem and goes a career high 9 innings. It's his 7th quality start in his 8 starts this season. He has a 2.38 ERA and 0.87 WHIP, while holding batters to a .195 batting average. As soon as the Phillies make a move with Nola, I don't know how this kid isn't up with Reading. J.P. Crawford sits this game out, but the offense prevails (barely). Heroics came in the 7th and 8th innings with a Walding RBI single and a Pullin RBI-double.

Delmarva 4, Lakewood 3

Ricardo Pinto - 6 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, 5 GB, 3 FB
Will Morris - 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, HR
Austin Davis - 0.1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB
Malquin Canelo - 2 for 4, K
Cord Sandberg - 1 for 4, R, K (outfield assist, home)
Carlos Tocci - 2 for 4, R, K
Rhys Hoskins - 2 for 3, R, BB, CS
Deivi Grullon - 1 for 4, 2 RBI, K (throwing error)
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 4, 2B, RBI
Herlis Rodriguez - 0 for 4, K
Damek Tomscha - 0 for 3, BB
Grenny Cumana - 1 for 2, BB

Ricardo Pinto with a solid, if unspectacular start. Will Morris allowed the tying run via a solo HR in the 8th and Austin Davis walked in the winning run in the bottom of the 9th. Positives beside Pinto were of course Canelo, Tocci and Hoskins. All 3 drive the BlueClaws offense and will see promotions at some point in the summer. Tocci and Canelo are blocked by Brown and Crawford, respectively. Hoskins isn't necessarily blocked, but Astudillo has seen significant time at 1B this season (though Hoskins is the far superior defender at the position). Good things are happening at the lower levels.
