Nola yesterDAY!

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Weekend Probables:

LHV: Jason Berken, TBD, Severino Gonzalez
REA: Mark Leiter, Ben Lively, TBD
LWD: Elneiry Garcia, Yoel Mecias, TBD
WIL: Alejandro Arteaga, Franklyn Kilome, TBD

Lehigh Valley 3, Buffalo 0

Aaron Nola - 5 IP, 4 H, 0 R, BB, 7 K, 2 GB, 5 FB
Adam Loewen - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB, 6 K
Juan Gutierrez - 2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, BB, K
Brian Bogusevic - 1 for 3, BB, 2 K, SB, HBP
Darin Ruf - 2 for 4, R, RBI, K
Russ Canzler - 1 for 4
Cord Phelps - 1 for 4, 2B, RBI, 2 K
Gabriel Lino - 1 for 4, CS
Jordan Danks - 2 for 2, R, BB

Aaron Nola makes his long-awaited AAA debut. It was an interesting matchup against Toronto's #1 pitching prospect Daniel Norris. Nola was able to throw 66 of his 98 pitches for strikes. The more advanced Buffalo hitters were able to work some at-bats against Nola. Our very own Ryan (@Eric_Lindros attended the game), reporting excellent command and throwing fastballs as high as 94 mph. All very good signs for the kid. Bogusevic stole his 10th base of the season. Gabriel Lino has the fun triple slash of .289/.283/.333 since being called up to Lehigh Valley.

Trenton 5, Reading 0

Tom Windle - 5 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 5 GB, 3 FB
Joely Rodriguez - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, K
Hoby Milner - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB
Tyler Knigge - 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, HR
J.P. Crawford - 1 for 4
Kelly Dugan - 0 for 4, 2 K
Aaron Altherr - 2 for 4, 2B
Brock Stassi - 0 for 3, HBP
Cam Perkins - 0 for 4, K
Brian Pointer - 1 for 3, BB, K (outfield assist, 2B)

It has largely been a season to forget for 23 year old Tom Windle. 38 walks in 66.2 innings is not very good, especially when you are also giving up 67 hits. Sadly, I'm not seeing many positives out of Windle's numbers that indicate any potential breakout or underlying success. Yankees "prospect" Eric Ruth held the Fightin's to 4 hits over 6 innings. The offense was an embarrassing 0 for 1 with RISP and left 6 on base.

Clearwater 9, St. Lucie 8

David Whitehad - 3 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 7 ER, K, 6 GB, 1 FB
Victor Arano - 4 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 K
Jesen Therrien - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K, HBP
Drew Stankiewicz - 1 for 4, R, 2 RBI
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 4, R, BB, K
Andrew Pullin - 2 for 5, HR, 4 RBI
Dylan Cozens - 1 for 5, R, K, 2 SB
Andrew Knapp - 0 for 2, R, 2 BB, HBP
Aaron Brown - 2 for 3, 2 R, 2 RBI, 2 BB, K, SB (outfield assist, 2B)
Harold Martinez - 2 for 4, R, 2B, 2 RBI, K
Mitch Walding - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K
Angelo Mora - 1 for 3, R, BB

David Whitehead's inconsistency hit an apex last night, giving up the most earned runs in his professional career. Because of the upcoming schedule they were able to use Victor Arano in relief for Whitehead, who gives them one his his best performances of the season (sadly enough). The Threshers exploded in the 4th inning for 7 runs to tie the game, eventually tacking on another run in the 5th to take the lead. St. Lucie would tie the game in the top of the 8th. The bottom of the 9th gave way to the previous night's walkoff hero, Aaron Brown. With runners on 3rd and 2nd with no outs, Brown delivered the walkoff single. In his last 30 games, Aaron Brown is batting .287/.358/.454 with 11 XBH (3 HR), 3 SB and only 18 strikeouts. Dylan Cozens continues to baffle catchers and pitchers alike, stealing his 11th and 12th bases.

Delmarva 6, Lakewood 1

Chris Oliver - 4 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 3 BB, K, 3 GB, 7 FB
Scott Harris - 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, 3 K
Alexis Rivero - 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB, 5 K
Gustavo Martinez - 0 for 4, SB
Herlis Rodriguez - 1 for 4, R, 2B, 2 K
Damek Tomscha - 0 for 3, BB, K
Rhys Hoskins - 1 for 4, RBI, K
Cord Sandberg - 2 for 3, 2B, BB
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 4, K (throwing error)
Deivi Grullon - 1 for 4, K
Derek Campbell - 2 for 4, 2B
Grenny Cumana - 0 for 4, 2 K

It's been disastrous for Oliver the past two starts, giving up a combined 17 hits, 11 earned runs, 5 walks and only 2 strikeouts in 8 innings. The Blue Claw offense seems to be struggling without the injured Canelo and promoted Tocci at the top of the lineup. I shudder to think what happens when Hoskins is eventually promoted. Grullon broke an 0 for 14 hitless streak before singling in the bottom of the 9th. Cord Sandberg has been seeing the ball as of late, hitting .297/.366/.459 in his last 10 games (37 at bats).
