Today's Probables:

LHV: Anthony Vasquez
REA: Ben Lively
CLR: David Whitehead
LWD: TBD
WIL: Alejandro Arteaga
GCL: Sam McWilliams GM1, TBD GM2

Lehigh Valley 5, Buffalo 4

Aaron Nola - 7.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 7 K, 10 GB, 3 FB
Hector Neris - 0.0 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB
Adam Loewen - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 K
Chase d'Arnaud - 1 for 5, R, K
Tyler Henson - 1 for 4, 2 R, BB, 2 K, SB
Brian Bogusevic - 1 for 5, 3 K
Russ Canzler - 2 for 3, R, 2B, 3B, 3 RBI, BB, SB
Aaron Altherr - 1 for 3, RBI sac fly, K, SB
Cord Phelps - 1 for 4, K
Jordan Danks - 2 for 4, K
Gabriel Lino - 0 for 4, K
Edgar Duran - 2 for 4, R, 2B

Aaron Nola dominates in his 2nd AAA start. He had held the Bisons to 3 hits and no runs in the first 7 innings of the game. One of the runs should have been unearned as Bogusevic lost a ball in the lights that would have been otherwise easily catch-able. Adam Loewen continued his torrid pace, striking out another 3 batters. In his last 6.1 innings pitched with the Iron Pigs, he has allowed only 3 hits and 2 walks all while striking out 15. That is insane. Aaron Altherr with his 1st RBI and stolen base with Lehigh Valley.

Akron 4, Reading 0

Mark Leiter - 6.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 7 GB, 5 FB
Tyler Knigge - 1.1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 K
Nefi Ogando - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
J.P. Crawford - 0 for 3, BB (fielding error)
KC Serna - 0 for 4, K
Kelly Dugan - 1 for 3, BB
Brock Stassi - 0 for 4
Art Charles - 1 for 4, 2 K, SB
Brian Pointer - 1 for 3, 2B, K

Another deceptive boxscore, where Mark Leiter's earned run was a result of a Crawford fielding error that allowed a leadoff double to move to third and then score via a sac fly. Despite only giving up 4 earned runs in two starts with Reading (13.2 IP), he is 0-2 because he's received 0 run support in those games. The offense his held to 4 hits. The Rubberducks, other than feeling shame for their name, should hang their heads by allowing Art Charles to steal a base. It was his first since 2013 and only his 10th in his pro career.

Clearwater 6, Daytona 4 (Game 1, Completion of 6/23 suspended game)

Matt Imhof - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB, 2 K, 2 GB, 1 FB
Yacksel Rios - 4 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, HR, 3 GB, 0 FB, WP
Miguel Nunez - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Edubray Ramos - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 K
Drew Stankiewicz - 2 for 4, 2B, 3 RBI
Carlos Tocci - 1 for 2, RBI, HBP, CS
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 3, BB, K
Aaron Brown - 0 for 4, 2 K (outfield assist, 3B)
Andrew Knapp - 2 for 4, 2 R, 2B, K
Willians Astudillo - 0 for 4
Chace Numata - 0 for 2, R, RBI, BB, 2 K
Mitch Walding - 2 for 3, 2 R, RBI
Angelo Mora - 1 for 3, R, RBI, K

Both Yacksel Rios and the Daytona starter were hammered in the resumption of play. Edubray Ramos is a beast. In his last 19.2 IP he has allowed only 8 hits, 2 runs and 1 walk, while striking out 20. The Threshers took the lead in the bottom of the 6th after the Tortugas had tied the game in the top of the 6th. Stankiewciz provided an RBI single and Tocci bunted in a run to put the Threshers up 6-4. 

Clearwater 3, Daytona 2 (Game 2, 7 innings)

Colin Kleven - 5.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 8 K, HR, 1 GB, 5 FB, WP
Ulises Joaquin - 1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 K, HR
Drew Stankiewicz - 1 for 3, R, 2B, K
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 3, K
Andrew Pullin - 0 for 3
Aaron Brown - 1 for 3, R, K
Andrew Knapp - 1 for 3, R, K
Willians Astudillo - 1 for 2
Chace Numata - 0 for 2, RBI
Mitch Walding - 0 for 2
Angelo Mora - 0 for 2, K

Colin Kleven dealt when he had to with the Florida State League North Division First Half Title on the line. He earned the win and launched the Threshers to their first playoff birth since 2007. That 2007 roster featured players such as Drew Carpenter, Carlos Carrasco, Josh Outman, Brad Harman, Jeremy Slayden, Lou Marson, Greg Golson and Jason Donald. The eventual winning runs came on a very strange play, where an eventual force-out with the bases loaded turned into both Aaron Brown and Andrew Knapp scoring. Just a reminder, Threshers last season were 17-51 in the first half and had likely the worst collection of talent in the league. Of course, the team would then go 32-38 in the second half and now are seemingly riding the re-invigoration of talent.

Williamsport 2, West Virginia 1 (15 innings)

Denton Keys - 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 6 K, 7 GB, 1 FB
Feliberto Sanchez - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 K
Juan Figueroa - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Jason Zgardowski - 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB
Anthony Sequeira - 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 4 K
Skylar Hunter - 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R
Zachary Coppola - 2 for 6, R, BB, 2 K
William Cucias - 0 for 5, R, 2 K, 2 HBP
Jose Pujols - 1 for 5, RBI, 2 BB, 2 K
Jesus Posso - 0 for 4, K
Grenny Cumana - 0 for 2
Wilson Garcia - 2 for 4, 2B, RBI, K, CS
Andrew Amaro - 0 for 1, BB
Jan Hernandez - 2 for 6, K, SB
Carlos Duran - 0 for 6, 5 K
Austin Bossart - 1 for 6, K
Dylan Bosheers - 0 for 3, K (throwing error)
Brendon Hayden - 1 for 3, K

Wild game from the Crosscutters, who improved to 6-0. Jose Pujols provided the RBI single that scored Zach Coppola who had worked a 1-out walk. Denton Keys was extremely impressive in his Williamsport debut after two years with the GCL Phils. He wound up tying his career high in strikeouts. The game looked to be over, but Jason Zgardowski gave up the tying run in the top of the 9th to blow the save. He had gotten two groundouts to start the inning, but then walked two batters before giving up a line drive single. The Crosscutters struck out an astounding 17 times in 15 innings; 5 of which came via Carlos Duran. Jan Hernandez stole his 1st base of the season. 2015 12th round draft pick Skylar Hunter has opened the season with 4 shutout innings.
