Columbus 10, Lehigh Valley 2

Mark Appel - 5 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 3 ER, BB, 5 K, HR, 3 WP, HBP, 6 GB, 2 FB
Reinier Roibal - 2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 2 ER, BB, 2 K, HR
Bobby LaFromboise - 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, K
Nick Williams - 1 for 4, R, 2B, K
Tommy Joseph - 0 for 4, K
Andrew Knapp - 2 for 4, HR, 2 RBI, K
Brock Stassi - 0 for 4, K
Darnell Sweeney - 1 for 3, BB, K

Mark Appel had a pretty weird outing. All six runs surrendered by Appel came in the bottom of the 2nd inning. As you can see here, Mark Appel didn't help his cause with the leadoff hit batter or the two wild pitches, but costly errors from Taylor Featherston (had three errors in the game) and Ryan Jackson extended the inning to further instigate the disaster. To add salt to the wound, Phillies fan favorite Michael Martinez went 2 for 5 in the game with 3 RBI. The lone offensive bright spots were the one out double by Williams in the 6th, which was followed two batters later with a Andrew Knapp HR. This was Knapp's 4th homer of the season and has hits in back-to-back games. Hopefully he is finding his groove at the plate again.

Reading 9, Binghamton 6

Nick Pivetta - 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 7 K, 2 WP, 7 GB, 3 FB
Michael Mariot - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, K
Tom Windle - 0.0 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, HR
Yacksel Rios - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB, K
Miguel Nunez - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Roman Quinn - 1 for 2, R, 3B, BB, 2 HBP, picked off
J.P. Crawford - 0 for 5, 2 K (fielding error)
Jorge Alfaro - 1 for 4, 2 RBI, K
Dylan Cozens - 1 for 5, 2 R, HR, 2 K
Rhys Hoskins - 0 for 4, BB, 2 K
Angelo Mora - 1 for 3, 2 R, 2B, RBI, BB
Aaron Brown - 2 for 4, 2 R, 2B
KC Serna - 1 for 1, 2 R, 2 RBI, 3 BB

Having watched most of yesterday's game, Nick Pivetta looked pretty good. His three walks all came in the top of the 6th inning, but was able to work out of the bases loaded two-out jam with a strikeout to end his outing. Taking out his disastrous first start, Nick Pivetta is putting together a fine 2016 campaign and a potential steal from the Jonathan Papelbon trade. Tom Windle nearly gave it all back in the 8th inning when he loaded the bases with singles and promptly gave up a grandslam. He would give up another single to the next batter before being pulled from the game. Dylan Cozens hit a no-doubt HR to right-centerfield in the 8th inning, his 9th HR of the season to tie the league-lead.

Clearwater 9, Dunedin 7

Tom Eshelman - 5 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 6 ER, BB, 8 K, 2 HR, HBP, 4 GB, 1 FB
Ulises Joaquin - 3 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 5 K, HBP
Joely Rodriguez - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K
Malquin Canelo - 1 for 5, R, 2 K
Cord Sandberg - 1 for 3, 2 R, 2B, 2 BB, 2 K, SB
Carlos Tocci - 2 for 5, R, 2 RBI, 2 SB
Kyle Martin - 0 for 5, 3 K
Mitch Walding - 1 for 5, R, K
Andrew Pullin - 0 for 3, R, RBI, BB, K
Zach Green - 1 for 3, R, 2 RBI, BB, K
Gabriel Lino - 1 for 4, HR, K
Derek Campbell - 3 for 4, R, 2 2B, 2 RBI, K

Tom Eshelman gets his 2nd win of the season, but it wasn't exactly pretty. He gave up a season-high 6 earned runs and two homeruns. Eshelman has given up 5 HR in his last 3 starts and had allowed none in his previous 3. It is certainly something to keep an eye on. The Threshers offense did most of their damage via a 7-run 5th inning. Tocci has back-to-back multi-hit games and stole his 5th and 6th bases last night. Andrew Pullin, once thought retired from baseball, made his 2016 season debut last night. He had somewhat of a breakout season with Clearwater last season and you can't argue adding another prospect back to the pool.
