LWD: Tyler Viza GM1, GM2 TBD

Lehigh Valley's game yesterday with Buffalo was suspended after 4 innings due to rain. It will be completed today and I'll save that recap for tomorrow, along with their other game.

St. Lucie 3, Clearwater 2 (13 innings)

Colin Kleven - 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 8 GB, 3 FB
Harold Guerrero - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 2 K
Jesen Therrien - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB, 2 K
Ulises Joaquin - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 K
Cody Forsythe - 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER
Drew Stankiewicz - 0 for 5
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 4
Andrew Knapp - 1 for 5, 2B, 3 K, HBP
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 4, BB, 2 K
Aaron Brown - 1 for 5
Willians Astudillo - 1 for 4, R, BB
Chace Numata - 1 for 5, 2B, K (passed ball)
Mitch Walding - 0 for 5, K (fielding error)
Angelo Mora - 1 for 4, RBI, K

Colin Kleven has 11 starts this season (excluding 1 rained out 1 inning appearance). He hasn't given up more than 3 earned runs in a game since his first start of the season and now holds a 3.00 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and is holding opponents to a .261 BA. The Threshers were able to tie the game up in the bottom of the 9th to push the game into extras. Forsythe picks up the loss after giving a RBI single with a runner on 2nd. The offense was overmatched all evening, going 0 for 5 with RISP and leaving 7 runners on base.

Lakewood 5, Hagerstown 1 (Game 1, 7 innings)

Ricardo Pinto - 6 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 8 GB, 6 FB, HBP, WP
Matt Hockenberry - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, K
Malquin Canelo - 1 for 3, 2 R, 2B, BB
Gustavo Martinez - 1 for 3, R, 3B, RBI, sacrifice hit
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 3, BB
Rhys Hoskins - 2 for 3, 2 RBI, sac fly
Damek Tomscha - 2 for 4, R, 2B, K
Deivi Grullon - 0 for 4, K
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 3, R, BB, 2 K
Herlis Rodriguez - 2 for 3, 3B, 2 RBI, K
Grenny Cumana - 0 for 3 (throwing error)

Ricardo Pinto bounces back from his worst start of the season last week to earn his 6th win in what has been a breakout for the 21 year old righty. Canelo's 19th double put him in sole possession of the league lead. Grullon has been struggling mightily as of late, hitting .209/.250/.286. We must remain patient with his bat though. Carlos Tocci is 5 walks away from closing in on tying his career high in that category. He will likely do it in half as many games this season.

Hagerstown 4, Lakewood 3 (Game 2, 7 innings)

Josh Taylor - 5 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, K, 8 GB, 5 FB, WP
Manny Martinez - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Malquin Canelo - 1 for 3, 2B
Herlis Rodriguez - 1 for 2, HR, K, HBP
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 3, R
Rhys Hoskins - 1 for 3, 2B, RBI, K
Damek Tomscha - 0 for 3 (fielding error)
Cord Sandberg - 1 for 3, R, 2B, K
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 3, CS
Joel Fisher - 0 for 3, K (passed ball)
Derek Campbell - 1 for 3, 2B, RBI, K

Josh Taylor's up and down season continues. After a string of two tremendous outings, he slid back into mediocrity. Taylor's stuff remains hittable, but has a respectable 9.1 K/9 and 3.9 BB/9. Herlis Rodriguez's breakout has been slightly less publicized because of what Canelo/Tocci/Hoskins are currently doing. Rodriguez is batting .301/.331/.470 in 166 at bats with 5 HR, 9 SB and 26 strikeouts. He has mostly DH'd and played LF this season, but his bat is finally coming alive after seeing brief glimpses of it in Clearwater last season. He is a guy to keep an eye on.
