Lehigh Valley 9, Toledo 3

Sean O'Sullivan - 5 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 2 K, 2 GB, 8 FB
Jason Berken - 4 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 K, WP
Tyler Henson - 2 for 5, 2 R, 2B, K
Chase d'Arnaud - 1 for 3, 2 R, BB, SB, CS, HBP
Brian Bogusevic - 1 for 5, R, RBI, SB
Aaron Altherr - 2 for 3, 3 R, 2B, 3B, 4 RBI, 2 BB
Kelly Dugan - 2 for 4, 2 RBI, BB, K
KC Serna - 1 for 4, R, K

Probably overshadowed in the Nick Williams-mania, was the continued awesomeness of our own homegrown budding outfielder Aaron Altherr. He played CF last night and contributed his 9th double and 2nd triple with Lehigh Valley, where he is hitting .306/.376/.519. He should be coming to a major league outfield in the next few weeks. Oh, and Kelly Dugan had his first multi-hit game in AAA last night. Next season's opening day OF could very well be Dugan/Herrera/Altherr.

Reading 11, Toledo 1

Ben Lively - 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, HR, 5 GB, 4 FB
Tom Windle - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Reinier Roibal - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K (throwing error)
Stephen Shackleford - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, K
Nick Williams - 4 for 4, 5 R, 2B, 2 HR, 3 RBI, BB, SB
J.P. Crawford - 0 for 2, R, RBI, 2 BB, K
Chase Utley - 3 for 4, R, 2B, RBI, BB
Brock Stassi - 0 for 4, 2 RBI
Andrew Knapp - 2 for 5, 2 HR, 3 RBI, K (passed ball)
Cam Perkins - 0 for 4, BB, SB
Brian Pointer - 1 for 5, R, 2B, 4 K
Harold Martinez - 1 for 4, R, RBI, K

I know it's one game, but how excited are you guys for Williams now? Just viewing the highlights of his HR's were something else to watch. One just straight up cleared the scoreboard. His developmental trajectory this season has been something else and he could be an everyday player for the big club at some point in 2016. That Knapp guy with only a mere 2 hits in his 5 at bats. His homeruns last night came from both sides of the plate and he is now slugging .636 in Reading. That is nearly a .300 point jump from his time in Clearwater.

Clearwater 7, Lakeland 0

Ricardo Pinto - 6 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 6 K, 8 GB, 0 FB
Alberto Tirado - 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K, WP
Miguel Nunez - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, K, WP
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 5, K
Malquin Canelo - 2 for 5, K, SB
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 5 (outfield assist, 2B)
Rhys Hoskins - 2 for 4, R
Dylan Cozens - 1 for 3, R, 2B, BB
Willians Astudillo - 2 for 3, 2 R, RBI
Wilson Garcia - 3 for 4, R, RBI
Jesmuel Valentin - 0 for 4, K
Derek Campbell - 2 for 3, 2 R, HR, 3 RBI

After two shaky starts, Ricardo Pinto was once again dominant. It was his first start since July 2 that he hadn't walked a batter and first he hadn't allowed a run since April 9. Across two levels, he is holding batters to a .252 average with a 91:31 K/BB in 121.2 innings. Alberto Tirado made his organizational debut, but was a little erratic. Canelo swiped his 5th base with Clearwater and has been hitting much better of late (.333 in his last 10 games). Dylan Cozens is quietly having a nice season at the plate even if his plus power hasn't shown up. He's batting .277/.325/.413 in 303 at bats with Clearwater.

Greensboro 6, Lakewood 5 (10 innings)

Austin Davis - 6 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 7 GB, 6 FB
Jason Zgardowski - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Scott Harris - 1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 HR
Joey Denato - 1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, K
Herlis Rodriguez - 2 for 5, K
Scott Kingery - 1 for 5, HR, 2 RBI
Kyle Martin - 1 for 5, R, 2 K
Damek Tomscha - 0 for 4, 2 K
Jiandido Tromp - 2 for 3, HR, BB
Deivi Grullon - 1 for 4, R, 2B, RBI
Jose Mayorga - 1 for 4, RBI
Emmanuel Marrero - 2 for 4, R

Austin Davis was spectacular after two not so spectacular outings his last time out. He obviously doesn't factor into the decision after Scott Harris allowed the Grasshoppers to tie the game up in the bottom of the 8th. Denato would give up the walkoff single in the bottom of the 10th. Scott Kingery hit his 3rd HR of the season and Tromp added his 6th. Tromp has been hitting the ball fairly well in his last 20 games, batting .264/.329/.569 with 5 HR and 3 SB. He is doing this with a sustainable .311 BABIP. His previous 63 games he was batting .173/.222/.248 with 1 HR. Perhaps he is finally turning it around.

Mahoning Valley 8, Williamsport 6

Jose Tavares - 0.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 ER, K (pickoff and throwing errors)
Feliberto Sanchez - 3.1 IP, 3 H, 5 R, 4 ER, BB, 3 K, HBP
Kenny Koplove - 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, K, WP
Jacob Waguespack - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K
Zachary Coppola - 2 for 5, R, 2 RBI, K (outfield assist, 2B)
Mark Laird - 2 for 5, R
Josh Tobias - 0 for 5, R, RBI, K (fielding error)
Jesus Posso - 2 for 4, HR, 2 RBI
Gregori Rivero - 0 for 4, RBI, K (throwing error)
Jan Hernandez - 0 for 4, 2 K
Carlos Duran - 1 for 2, R, 2B, 2 BB, K, SB
Dylan Bosheers - 2 for 4, CS
Andrew Amaro - 1 for 3, BB, 2 K

Jose Tavares couldn't even make it out of the first inning, throwing 37 pitches. Jesus Posso continues to show off his power, launching his 4th HR (only 3 off the league lead). Overall the Crosscutters outhit Mahoning Valley 10-9, but poor defense allowed 3 unearned runs to score in the game. Centerfielder Carlos Duran has been hitting very well since coming back from injury. He stole his 4th base last night and is batting .314 in his last 10 games.
