Scranton/WB 3, Lehigh Valley 2

Phil Klein - 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 10 K, 5 GB, 1 FB
J.P. Crawford - 1 for 4, RBI, K
Nick Williams - 0 for 4, 2 K
Cam Perkins - 2 for 2, HR, 2 BB
Brock Stassi - 1 for 4, 2 K
Darnell Sweeney - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K, SB, CS
Jesmuel Valentin - 0 for 4, 2 K (missed catch error)

Journeyman Phil Klein strikes out a career-high 10 batters last night en route to a no-decision. A newly promoted Hoby Milner gave up the tying run the following inning. In the bottom of the 9th, Dailier Hinojosa allows a 1-out sac-fly to score the winning run for the walk-off victory. Cam Perkins hit his 8th HR, a solo shot in the 2nd inning. The 25 year old Perkins owns a .292/.333/.442 slash on the season.

Reading 8, Binghamton 2

Tom Eshelman - 6 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 11 K, 2 GB, 4 FB
Jimmy Cordero - 2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, K
Roman Quinn - 0 for 5
Scott Kingery - 1 for 5, R, 2B, 3 K
Jorge Alfaro - 1 for 4, R, BB, 2 K
Dylan Cozens - 2 for 4, 2 R, 2B, BB, 2 K, SB
Rhys Hoskins - 2 for 4, 2 R, HR, 3 RBI, BB, K
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 3, R, 2 RBI, K, HBP

Reading improves to an astounding 77-38 record behind a dominant Tom Eshelman performance. Eshelman's 11 K's were a career-high and appears to be a pitcher reborn since his short DL stint. In his last two starts now he has gone: 12 IP, 9 H, 1 ER, BB, 16 K. That Rhys Hoskins guy hit another HR, his professional baseball-leading 35th of the season. Dylan Cozens with 2 hits, including his 33rd double and stole his 19th base.

Tampa 8, Clearwater 5 (11 innings)

Will Morris - 6 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 ER, BB, 2 K, HR, 8 GB, 5 FB
Tom Windle - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, K
Matt Hockenberry - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 K
Ranfi Casimiro - 1 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, BB, 3 K, HR
Jiandido Tromp - 2 for 6, R, 2B, K
Josh Tobias - 0 for 4, R, BB, K
Carlos Tocci - 1 for 4, R, SB
Aaron Brown - 0 for 5, 4 K
Chace Numata - 4 for 5, 2 R, 2B, RBI
Zach Green - 2 for 5, 2B, 2 RBI, K
Kyle Martin - 0 for 5, 3 K
Malquin Canelo - 0 for 4, BB, 2 K
Derek Campbell - 1 for 5, RBI, K

It is kind of hard to win when your team strikes out 13 times, but Clearwater got close by pushing it to extra innings. An epic collapse in the top of the 11th by Ranfi Casimiro dashed any such hopes. He allowed two singles and walk before giving up a grandslam to the very next batter. Carlos Tocci steals his 13th base on the season. Chace Numata, despite being close to org filler, is having a lot of success in his second season with the Threshers. The catcher from Hawaii is slashing .310/.378/.412 while providing solid defense.

Lakewood 3, Delmarva 1

Franklyn Kilome - 6 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 11 K, 1 GB, 2 FB
Grant Dyer - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 4 K
Sutter McLoughlin - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 2 K
Mark Laird - 1 for 4, CS, picked off
Cornelius Randolph - 1 for 4
Jose Pujols - 2 for 4, R, 2 2B (outfield assist, 2B)
Damek Tomscha - 0 for 3, R, BB
Wilson Garcia - 1 for 3, HR, 3 RBI, BB
Grenny Cumana - 1 for 3, HBP
Carlos Duran - 0 for 2, 2 BB, CS, picked off
Emmanuel Marrero - 0 for 4, 3 K
Edgar Cabral - 1 for 3, K

How are we all feeling about Franklyn Kilome these days? Pretty good? Yeah. He hasn't given up more than 3 runs in a game since his 3rd start of the season back on April 19. And yes, the 11 strikeouts last night were a career high. His previous high was 9. Kilome has 107 strikeouts in 95.2 IP this season and has only issued 4 walks in his last 5 starts. Jose Pujols really messing with us of late, batting a solid .308 in his last 10 games. In that same span he only has 7 strikeouts (to 2 walks), which is actually kinda good for Pujols. Progress? Wilson Garcia provided the only offense the BlueClaws needed with a 3-run HR in the 7th, his 3rd of the season.

Hudson Valley 13, Williamsport 5

Bailey Falter - 2.2 IP, 1 H, 3 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, HBP, 4 GB, 3 FB
Kenny Koplove - 2.2 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, WP
Alexander Kline - 1.1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, K
Tyler Hallead - 2.1 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 K, HR, HBP
Jesus Alastre - 0 for 4, R, BB, K
Luke Maglich - 3 for 4, R, 2B, RBI, SB
Gregori Rivero - 1 for 4, R (throwing error and 3 passed balls)
Darick Hall - 1 for 4, R, RBI
Brett Barbier - 2 for 4, R, RBI (fielding error)
Lucas Williams - 0 for 3, BB, K
Chandler Hall - 0 for 4, 2 K (throwing error)
Luis Espiritu - 2 for 4, RBI, K (throwing error)
Juan Luis - 1 for 4, K (two fielding errors)

Well, that was a messy game. Our very own Wet Luzinski attended this game and we hope he joins us in the comments to deliver what I'm sure is a wonder in-person account of this travesty. Luke Maglich was one of the lone bright spots of the game, hitting his 5th double and stealing his 6th base. The 23 year old outfielder (2016, 34th rounder) is a bit old for the league, but is having a fine season nonetheless (.297/.393/.451).
