Phillies Minor League Roundup - July 30, 2015

Soon.
Soon.
Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Weekend Probables:

LHV: Jason Berken, TBD, TBD
REA: Joely Rodriguez, TBD, TBD
CLR: GM1 Ricardo Pinto, GM2 Matt Imhof, David Whitehead, Victor Arano
LWD: Elneiry Garcia, Shane Watson, Will Morris
WIL: Mitch Gueller, Tyler Gilbert, TBD

TBD might get a bit overworked and could get some relief from recently acquired prospects this week.

Scranton/WB 3, Lehigh Valley 2

Cesar Jimenez - 3 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, K, HR
Dustin McGowan - 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 4 K
Adam Loewen - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 4 K
Tyler Henson - 3 for 5, 2 2B, RBI
Brian Bogusevic - 0 for 4, K
Aaron Altherr - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K
Gabriel Lino - 0 for 4, K (throwing error)
KC Serna - 0 for 3, R, K (fielding error)

The dreaded bullpen game. Cesar Jimenez picked up his 5th loss and has given up 6 earned runs in his last two appearances combined. I wonder with Diekman leaving that they don't add Loewen to the 40 man roster and give him a callup. Would be a great story. The offense only mustered up 5 hits in the game, 3 of which came from Tyler Henson.

New Hampshire 4, Reading 0

Mark Leiter - 7 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 ER, BB, 9 K, 4 GB, 3 FB
Edubray Ramos - 1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 K
Kelly Dugan - 1 for 4, 3 K
J.P. Crawford - 1 for 3, BB
Cam Perkins - 2 for 4
Brock Stassi - 1 for 3, 2B, BB, K
Andrew Knapp - 0 for 4, 2 K (throwing error)
Brian Pointer - 0 for 4, 4 K (outfield assist, 2B)
Harold Martinez - 1 for 3

Go figure that Mark Leiter tosses a gem and the offense falls flat. The offense collected a mere 6 hits and were 0 for 10 with RISP. Brian Pointer with illustrious golden sombrero and has been ice cold at the plate as of late. That of course is no surprise to the very streaky player that Pointer is.

Clearwater, St. Lucie (postponed due to rain, will be made up as part of the doubleheader today)

West Virginia 7, Lakewood 4

Austin Davis - 5 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 4 ER, BB, 6 K, HR, 2 WP, 7 GB, 2 FB
Jason Zgardowski - 1 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, K, 2 WP
Manny Martinez - 1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, K
Joey Denato - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R
Herlis Rodriguez - 1 for 5, 2 K
Scott Kingery - 1 for 5, R, RBI
Damek Tomscha - 1 for 4, RBI, K (fielding error)
Cord Sandberg - 1 for 4, 2 K
Jiandido Tromp - 0 for 4, 3 K
Chase Harris - 2 for 3, 2 R, SB
Joel Fisher - 0 for 4
Emmanuel Marrero - 2 for 4, R, K

You aren't going to win many games giving up 7 runs, but you also won't win many with the 6 through 9 hitters all batting under .200 either. Austin Davis now with back-to-back disappointing starts, giving up 12 hits, 2 walks and 8 earned runs in 10 innings.

Lowell 5, Williamsport 2

Jose Taveres - 5.1 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, K, WP, 2 GB, 7 FB
Jacob Waguespack - 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 4 K
Anthony Sequeira - 1 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, HBP
Mark Laird - 2 for 4, 2 RBI, K, CS (outfield assist, 2B)
Josh Tobias - 1 for 3, CS, picked off
Jose Pujols - 2 for 4, 2 K
Brendon Hayden - 1 for 4
Jesus Posso - 0 for 4
Jan Hernandez - 1 for 3
Gregori Rivero - 1 for 3, R, 2B (passed ball)
Carlos Duran - 1 for 3, R, 2B, K
Dylan Bosheers - 0 for 3

Jose Taveres with arguably his worst start of the season, and it really wasn't even that bad. Despite his low opponents BA and ERA, he has given up a ton of hits and walked a bunch more than you'd like. He's limited damage, but that isn't likely going to fly as he moves up the organization ladder.

GCL Tigers 1, GCL Phillies 0 (10 innings)

Sam McWilliams - 6 IP, 5 H, 0 R, BB, 4 K, 8 GB, 3 FB
Ismael Cabrera - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, K, HBP
Zach Morris - 3 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, K (throwing error)
Juan Luis - 0 for 2, K, SB
Jesus Alastre - 0 for 3, K
Arquimedes Gamboa - 1 for 4
Cornelius Randolph - 0 for 2, K
Yunior Reyes - 0 for 2
Tommy Joseph - 0 for 1
Luis Encarnacion - 0 for 3, K
Edgar Cabral - 0 for 2
Rodolfo Duran - 0 for 2, K (passed ball)
Greg Pickett - 1 for 4, 2 K
Lucas Williams - 1 for 4
Bryan Martelo - 0 for 3, BB
Jose Antequera - 2 for 4, 2B, 2 K (fielding error)

Aside from a fantastic game from Sam McWilliams, there isn't much else to note. McWilliams had back-to-back disastrous starts his last two outings, so this one was encouraging. The catching prospect turned first baseman non-prospect made his long awaited re-debut with the GCL Phils. I wish Tommy the best, but man is he going to need to hit to stay around.
