Today's Probables:

LHV: Zach Eflin
REA: Anthony Vasquez
CLR: Shane Watson
LWD: Franklyn Kilome

Gwinnett 3, Lehigh Valley 1

Severino Gonzalez - 4 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 K, 5 GB, 4 FB
Mario Hollands - 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, 5 K
J.P. Crawford - 0 for 3, BB, K
Nick Williams - 1 for 3, BB, K, CS
Cam Perkins - 0 for 3
Logan Moore - 1 for 3, HR, K
Darnell Sweeney - 1 for 3

Zach Eflin was supposed to start this game, but was told before the game that he would be moved back a few days. This of course happened around the time of Vincent Velasquez's injury in yesterday afternoon's Phillies game. So there is rampant speculation that Eflin could get the call if Velasquez is out for an extended period. Anyway, our old friend Severino Gonzalez got the call and took his first AAA loss of the season. The offense did him no favors, collecting just 5 hits and going 0 for 4 with RISP. Logan Moore, in his infrequent starts, has been surprisingly good at the plate. This is a far cry from his past MiLB number. This season he is slashing .393/.414/.714 in 28 AAA at-bats with 2 HR. He is who I'd expect to get the call if either Ruiz or Rupp would sustain an injury.

Reading 3, Akron 2 (11 innings)

Ricardo Pinto - 7 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 8 K, HBP, 9 GB, 2 FB
Tom Windle - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 2 K
Hoby Milner - 2 IP, 0 H, 2 BB, 5 K, WP
Miguel Nunez - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 2 K
Jesmuel Valentin - 1 for 4, BB, 3 K
Angelo Mora - 0 for 5, 3 K
Jorge Alfaro - 0 for 5, 4 K
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 4, BB, 2 K, SB
Rhys Hoskins - 2 for 5, 2 R, 2B, HR, K
Aaron Brown - 1 for 3, 2B, RBI, K

After a trio of questionable starts where he gave up 18 hits and 14 runs in 12.1 innings, he has bounced back superbly in his last two starts. He left the game with a 2-1 deficit, with the lone run support coming via Jake Fox's 11th HR of the season. In the 8th inning, Aaron Brown would double home Rhys Hoskins (who led off the inning with his own double) to tie the game. In the 11th, Rhys Hoskins would prove a hero again, mashing his 2-out 14th HR of the season to give the Fightin Phils a lead. Hoskins is just 3 HR shy of his 2015 total in about 280 less at-bats. Aside from Hoskins, this was a particularly ugly game at the plate for both teams. There were a combined 35 strikeouts in the game, including 13 from Akron starter Adam Plutko.

Charlotte 4, Clearwater 3

Ranfi Casimiro - 6.1 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 3 K, 2 WP, 10 GB, 3 FB
Victor Arano - 0.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 K
Alexis Rivero - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 3, BB, CS
Andrew Pullin - 2 for 4, R, 2B, K
Scott Kingery - 1 for 3, R, BB, K
Kyle Martin - 1 for 4, R
Zach Green - 1 for 4, RBI, K
Mitch Walding - 1 for 4, K
Malquin Canelo - 0 for 3, RBI, CS
Gabriel Lino - 0 for 3
Cord Sandberg - 0 for 3

Ranfi Casimiro had held a 3-2 lead entering the bottom of the 7th inning, but he and Arano failed to hold it. Arano picked up his first loss of the season. Casimiro has had an up and down season, but has struck out 52 batters in 53 innings this season (to only 15 walks). He however remains quite hit-able, allowing 51 base-hits. Andrew Pullin with his multi-hit game improved his hitting streak to 5 games. Scott Kingery likely remains the biggest offensive highlight on the team with a .266/.340/.421 line with 3 HR and 12 SB.

Lakewood 6, Lexington 0 (5 innings, completed early due to rain)

Harold Arauz - 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 7 K, 6 GB, 2 FB
Emmanuel Marrero - 1 for 3, R, RBI, K
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 3, RBI, K
Josh Tobias - 2 for 2, RBI, SB
Jose Pujols - 0 for 3, 2 K
Austin Bossart - 0 for 2, R
Jan Hernandez - 2 for 2, R, 2B, RBI
Brendon Hayden - 1 for 2, R
Carlos Duran - 1 for 2, R, 2B, RBI, K
Venn Biter - 1 for 2, R, RBI

Harold Arauz improved to 2-4 and rebounded from a truly awful outing last week in which he couldn't even get out of the 1st inning. Arauz has surprisingly held the opposing team to 0 earned runs in 5 of his 10 starts this season and holds a 3.35 ERA in 48.1 IP. Josh Tobias had a another mult-hit game and is hitting .342 in his last 10 games. His stolen base was his 5th on the season. Jan Hernandez is very sneakily having a good season at the plate. He is batting .269/.333/.434 in 175 at-bats with 7 HR. It might finally be coming together for the 21 year old former 3rd round pick (2013).
