Weekend Probables:

LHV: Zach Eflin, David Buchanan, Jake Thompson
REA: Ricardo Pinto, Anthony Vasquez, John Richy
CLR: Elniery Garcia, Tyler Viza, Tom Eshelman
LWD: Drew Anderson, Jose Tavares, N/A

Lehigh Valley 4, Charlotte 2

James Russell - 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, BB, 4 K, 3 GB, 2 FB
J.P. Crawford - 0 for 2, 2 BB, SB
Nick Williams - 0 for 3, R, BB, K
Andrew Knapp - 2 for 4, R, K
Brock Stassi - 2 for 3, 2 R, HR, BB

Once again, James Russell is serviceable as a starter, though I'm sure we all wish that it was Appel or Asher doing this instead. Lehigh Valley was down 2-1 going into the top of the 9th. Both Severino Gonzalez and Luis Garcia gave up runs in their appearances in relief. Cedric Hunter delivered a two-run single to put the IronPigs ahead and Will Veneble added an RBI single for an insurance run. Edward Mujica wrapped up the bottom of the inning with his league-leading 14th save (second highest is 10). Crawford's steal was his first in AAA. Andrew Knapp now has back-to-back multi-hit games for the first time this season (batting .253/.329/.445 in 146 AB).

Reading 15, Portland 9

Nick Pivetta - 5 IP, 7 H, 7 R, 5 ER, BB, 6 K, HR, 5 GB, 1 FB
Joely Rodriguez - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K
Reinier Roibal - 2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, K, WP
Roman Quinn - 1 for 6, K, CS (two fielding errors)
Jesmuel Valentin - 0 for 5, BB, 2 K
Rhys Hoskins - 0 for 5, BB
Dylan Cozens - 4 for 6, 4 R, 2 2B, K
Jake Fox - 4 for 4, 4 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, BB
Angelo Mora - 2 for 4, R, RBI, BB, K
Aaron Brown - 0 for 3, 2 R, RBI, BB
KC Serna - 1 for 3, 2 R, 2B, 2 RBI, 2 BB, K (throwing error)
Joel Fisher - 2 for 3, 2 R, 2B, HR, 6 RBI, 2 BB

Nick Pivetta wasn't very good yesterday, but fortunately he didn't have to be. Despite the top of the lineup going a collective 1 for 16, the bottom 2/3 absolutely mashed the ball. Dylan Cozens with a season-high 4 hits in last night's game (he had a couple 4-hit games last season as well). The Immortal Jake Fox hit his 9th and 10th homers last night. Joel Fisher added a grandslam in the 5th inning, his second longball of the season. On top of their 14 hits they worked 9 free-passes. This offense is absolutely ridiculous seeing as they didn't have Jorge Alfaro last night and J.P. Crawford isn't even on the team anymore.

Hickory 2, Lakewood 0

Franklyn Kilome - 5.1 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 5 BB, 3 K, HR, WP, HBP, 6 GB, 4 FB
Luis Morales - 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 2 K
Sutter McLoughlin - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K
Carlos Duran - 0 for 4, K
Josh Tobias - 0 for 4
Wilson Garcia - 2 for 4
Deivi Grullon - 1 for 4, K
Jose Pujols - 1 for 4, K
Jan Hernandez - 1 for 2, BB
Brendon Hayden - 0 for 3, K
Jiandido Tromp - 0 for 3
Grenny Cumana - 1 for 3, CS

Franklyn Kilome wasn't nearly as sharp as his previous outings, but didn't matter all that much as his offense failed to capitalize. Kilome's 5 walks were a season high. In his previous 4 starts he had given up 5 walks combined. The BlueClaw his terribly inconsistent and has been all year. If Josh Tobias or Jose Pujols aren't mashing the ball it is hard for them to compete on a nightly basis. The loss of Cornelius Randolph in April has also been devastating.
