Today's Probables:

LHV: David Buchanan
REA: Anthony Vasquez
CLR: Elniery Garcia
LWD: Luke Leftwich

Lehigh Valley 3, Syracuse 0

Zach Eflin - 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, 6 K, 11 GB, 3 FB
Edubray Ramos - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, K
Edward Mujica - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, K
Taylor Featherston - 2 for 4, 2B, RBI, K, CS (throwing error)
Nick Williams - 0 for 3, BB (fielding error)
Andrew Knapp - 0 for 3
Darnell Sweeney - 0 for 1, R, 2 BB, K, CS
Carlos Alonso - 2 for 3, 2 R, 2B, HR, 2 RBI, K

Zach Eflin looked really, really good yesterday morning. His confidence on the mound and with his pitches were something to watch. If he continues at this rate, I have no doubts he will be with the Phillies this summer. The offense provided was via a RBI double from Featherston in the 3rd inning and a 2-run HR from Carlos Alonso in the 5th. Alonso's HR was his first of the season and first career at AAA. He isn't a prospect at 28, but that doesn't mean he can't be a late-blooming utility infielder in the future either. With two more walks, Darnell Sweeney's OBP in his last 15 games is .426.

Bowie 7, Reading 6

Ricardo Pinto - 5 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 6 ER, BB, 5 K, 3 HR, 3 GB, 4 FB
Mario Hollands - 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 K
Gregory Infante - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K
Roman Quinn - 1 for 3, 2 R, BB, SB
J.P. Crawford - 1 for 3, RBI, BB, SB
Jorge Alfaro - 0 for 4, RBI
Dylan Cozens - 1 for 4, R, RBI, 2 K (fielding error)
Rhys Hoskins - 0 for 2, R, 2 BB
Angelo Mora - 1 for 4 (fielding error)
Harold Martinez - 2 for 4

Ricardo Pinto gave up 3 runs in each of the 4th and 5th innings, which included a solo and 2 two-run HRs. Pinto hadn't given up a HR in his last 3 starts and had only given up 3 runs total in his previous 5 starts. Infante was hit with the loss in the 9th inning after he had walked two batters, was replaced with 1 out for Hoby Milner, who was pitching when Angelo Mora committed an error to allow the walk-off run to score. The immortal Jake Fox hit a 3-run bomb in the 1st inning, his 8th HR of the season. Roman Quinn stole his 18th base and Crawford added his 5th.

St. Lucie 3, Clearwater 0 (Game 1 of doubleheader, 7 innings)

Matt Imhof - 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, WP, 7 GB, 3 FB
Matt Hockenberry - 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB
Scott Kingery - 0 for 2, HBP
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 2, HBP
Cody Asche - 0 for 3, K (outfield assist, home)
Andrew Pullin - 0 for 3
Zach Green - 2 for 3, 2B, K
Mitch Walding - 1 for 3, K
Gabriel Lino - 0 for 2
Malquin Canelo - 0 for 2, K (throwing error)
Cord Sandberg - 0 for 2

Matt Imhoff wasn't sharp and the Thresher offense was shutdown by St. Lucie Mets prospect Ricky Knapp, holding them to just 3 hits.

Clearwater 4, St. Lucie 2 (Game 1 of doubleheader, 7 innings, makeup of 5/17 ppd)

Ranfi Casimiro - 6 IP 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 7 K, HR, 7 GB, 3 FB
Jesen Therrien - 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, K
Malquin Canelo - 1 for 3, BB, K
Carlos Tocci - 1 for 3, R, RBI, K, SB, CS
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 4, HR, 2 RBI, 2 K
Kyle Martin - 0 for 3, BB, K
Zach Green - 0 for 3, K, HBP
Mitch Walding - 1 for 3, 2B
Chace Numata - 1 for 2, R, BB, SB (two passed balls)
Cord Sandberg - 1 for 3, R
Derek Campbell - 1 for 2, K

Ranfi Casimiro picked up his 5th win of the season and lowered his ERA/WHIP to 3.35/1.12. He's struck out 40 in 37.2 innings, while only walking 10. Andrew Pullin launched a two-run HR in the 1st inning, his 2nd HR of the season. Carlos Tocci stole his 7th bag (and got caught stealing for his 3rd).

Hagerstown 2, Lakewood 1

Shane Watson - 6 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 K, 10 GB, 4 FB
Luis Morales - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, K, HBP
Emmanuel Marrero - 0 for 5, K
Josh Tobias - 0 for 3, BB
Wilson Garcia - 1 for 3, HBP
Jose Pujols - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K
Austin Bossart - 1 for 4, K
Brendon Hayden - 1 for 4, K
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 4, R, 2 K
Grenny Cumana - 1 for 3
Carlos Duran - 3 for 4, 2B

Shane Watson pitched a good game, but had to settle for his 2nd loss of the year. The Lakewood offense missed opportunities, going 2 for 10 with RISP and leaving 9 on. Carlos Duran was the superstar last night, with his first multi-hit game of the season. He made his season debut on Saturday and is someone the Phillies do like. Duran is someone who could potentially move quickly if he keeps hitting the ball.
