Note: With only two state-side games today, I'm going to hold off on a roundup for Wednesday. I'll combine those games with the Thursday roundup. Hope it does y'all well!


Clearwater 3, Fort Myers 2

Ricardo Pinto - 6.2 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 8 GB, 3 FB
Yacskel Rios - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Ulises Joaquin - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, K
Malquin Canelo - 1 for 4
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 3
Andrew Pullin - 0 for 4, R
Aaron Brown - 1 for 3, R, 2B, BB, K
Chace Numata - 1 for 4, R (passed ball)
Willians Astudillo - 2 for 4, 2 RBI

Ricardo Pinto has done quite well for himself in 2015. He holds an overall 3.07 ERA with a 1.19 WHIP and 76 K's in 99.2 innings. He has seen a slight decrease in strikeouts since being promoted to Clearwater. The future is bright for the 21 year old righty. The offense didn't have to do much thankfully to Pinto and the bullpen. The game was tied going into the top of the 9th 2-2. Astudillo would lace a line drive into RF to score Andrew Pullin to put the Threshers ahead. Ulises Joaquin closed out his 11th game of the season. The Thresher bullpen has been outstanding all season long.

Connecticut 2, Williamsport 1

Luis Morales - 3 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 5 GB, 1 FB
Feliberto Sanchez - 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 K, 2 GB, 3 FB
Andrew Godail - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 K
Skylar Hunter - 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, K
Zachary Coppola - 0 for 4
Mark Laird - 1 for 4
Venn Biter - 0 for 4, 2 K
Jose Pujols - 0 for 3, R, BB, 3 K
Brendon Hayden - 2 for 3, BB
Jan Hernandez - 1 for 4, K, CS (throwing error)
Josh Tobias - 1 for 4
Gregori Rivero - 1 for 3, 2B, RBI (passed ball)
Grenny Cumana - 0 for 3

Luis Morales bizarre season continued as it added to his unbalanced season totals. In 14 innings this season he has allowed 16 hits, 5 runs, 8 walks and only struck out 8. His WHIP and opponents batting average stand at 1.71 and .291, respectively. The bullpen did a much better job at shutting down the Connecticut offense, but the Crosscutters bats were silenced as well. They were 6-hit going 1 for 8 with RISP and leaving 6 on.

GCL Phillies 3, GCL Tigers 1

Felix Paulino - 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, WP, 4 GB, 5 FB
Will Stewart - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R
Horace Stubblefield - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 K
Juan Luis - 1 for 3, 2 R, BB, K, HBP, SB
Jonathan Arauz - 2 for 5, RBI, K
Cornelius Randolph - 2 for 3, 2B, BB, CS
Luis Encarnacion - 0 for 3, BB, K
Lucas Williams - 0 for 3, RBI, BB, K
Greg Pickett - 0 for 4, 3 K
Bryan Martelo - 1 for 4, R, K
Edgar Cabral - 1 for 2, K
Greg Brodzinski - 2 for 2
Jose Antequera - 1 for 4, K (throwing error)

20 year old Felix Paulino has made quick work of the GCL in his admittedly small sample size this season. He has a sterling 20:4 K/BB ratio in 20 innings of work. He has gone 5 innings in all 4 starts he's made with the GCL Phillies. He is certainly a promotion candidate if a spot were to open up in Williamsport. The GCL Phillies offense pounded out 10 hits and worked 4 walks. Cornelius Randolph, the Phillies 2015 1st rounder, has been excellent in his first professional season thus far. He has a triple slash of .304/.414/.518 in 56 at bats. That might not be Crawford-GCL levels of awesomeness, but its not that far off. Hopefully his bat is the real deal. After a minor layoff, Greg Pickett is back in the lineup. He was doing extremely well at the plate before the 12 day absence.
