Clearwater 11, Brevard County 1

Yacksel Rios - 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 5 K, 7 GB, 2 FB
Jesen Therrien - 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, HBP
Ulises Joaquin - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB
Jesmuel Valentin - 2 for 5, R, 3B, 2 RBI, K
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 4, BB
Dylan Cozens - 1 for 5, 3 K
Rhys Hoskins - 2 for 3, 3 R, 2B, 3B, RBI, BB
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 5, R
Aaron Brown - 2 for 5, 2 R, 2 2B
Chace Numata - 3 for 4, 2 R, 2B, 4 RBI
Malquin Canelo - 1 for 3, R, RBI, BB, K, SB

After two rocky starts, Yacksel Rios came back with his best start of the season. The on-off again reliever/starter, 2.81 ERA/1.01 WHIP in 83.1 innings this season. The offense exploded thanks to a good deal of the lineup last night. Rhys Hoskins cannot be stopped, smacking his 16th double and 2nd triple with Clearwater. Chace Numata was the breadwinner last night, delivering 4 RBIs. Aaron Brown has been swinging the stick well lately, batting .351/.406/.509 in August (57 AB). The offense outhit the Manatees 16-6 and the team moved to 71-53 on the season.

Lakewood 6, West Virginia 4

Jairo Munoz - 4 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, WP, HBP, 4 GB, 4 FB
Manny Martinez - 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB, 2 K
Calvin Rayburn - 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 BB
Matt Hockenberry - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K
Herlis Rodriguez - 2 for 5, 2 R, 2 2B, K (outfield assist, 3B)
Scott Kingery - 1 for 3, R, 2B, 2 RBI, K
Kyle Martin - 0 for 4, 2 K
Damek Tomscha - 2 for 4, R, 2B, RBI, K
Cord Sandberg - 2 for 4, K
Jiandido Tromp - 2 for 4, R, SB
Deivi Grullon - 1 for 3, HR, 3 RBI, 2 K

Jairo Munoz got his first official start of the season last night and was highly ineffective. Lucky, the bullpen bailed him out and held out long enough to aid the eventual win. Deivi Grullon played the hero, blasting his 5th HR, a 3-run shot, to break up the 4-3 deficit. Herlis Rodriguez still quietly having a wonderful little season at the plate, but also added his 18th OF assist. I'd imagine that is near the top of the SAL, if not most minor leagues.

Williamsport 9, State College 4

Jose Tavares - 6.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 7 K, HBP, 9 GB, 5 FB
Jacob Waguespack - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Robert Tasin - 1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, K
Zack Coppola - 1 for 3, R, RBI, BB, CS
Mark Laird - 2 for 4, R, 2B, picked off
Josh Tobias - 3 for 5, 2 R, 2B, RBI, picked off
Brendon Hayden - 1 for 4, R, RBI, BB, K
Venn Biter - 2 for 4, R, 2B, RBI, K
Jan Hernandez - 1 for 3, HR, 4 RBI
Carlos Duran - 2 for 4
Austin Bossart - 1 for 4, R (throwing error)
William Cuicas - 1 for 4, R, 2B, RBI, K

Jose Tavares moved to 6-2 on the season and struck out a season high 7 batters. He has struck out 45 batters in 46.2 innings this season. Jan Hernandez hit a 2-run HR in the 5th inning, his 10th HR of the season (1 off the league lead). Josh Tobias is slashing .336/.351/.486 in his last 25 games (107 AB). Brendon Hayden returned to the lineup after a lengthy absence that saw him get a nasty eye infection.

GCL Phillies 7, GCL Braves 2

Felix Paulino - 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, WP, 11 GB, 4 FB
Victor Delgado - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, K
Ryne Frankoff - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R
Will Stewart - 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, K
Arquimedes Gamboa - 2 for 5, R, 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K (fielding error)
Jonathan Arauz - 1 for 5, K (fielding error)
Cornelius Randolph - 0 for 2, RBI, BB, 2 K, HBP, CS
Luis Encarnacion - 0 for 4, RBI, K
Lucas Williams - 1 for 3, R, 2B, BB, K
Juan Luis - 2 for 3, R
Scott Tomassetti - 2 for 4, 2B, RBI
Greg Pickett - 1 for 3, 2 R, BB, 2 K
Rodolfo Duran - 1 for 3, 2 R, RBI, K

Felix Paulino improved to 5-3 and lowered his ERA to 2.45. This was his first non-raindelayed start in which he didn't strike out a batter. If you don't follow Chris King on twitter @StatsKing you really should. He has given some really good insight on the goings-on in the GCL, including our beloved Phillies. He was raving about Gamboa/Arauz during the game yesterday, praising their work in the field. 2015 3rd round pick Lucas Williams is now slashing .289/.402/.333 with 7 SB on the season. He just turned 19 this month and appears to have a good feel for hitting already.
