Pawtucket 10, Lehigh Valley 4

Nick Pivetta - 4 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 6 K, HBP, 4 GB, 0 FB
J.P. Crawford - 1 for 4, 2B, RBI (fielding error)
Nick Williams - 2 for 4, R, 2 K, SB
Andrew Knapp - 0 for 4, 3 K
Cam Perkins - 1 for 3, K, SB
Jesmuel Valentin - 0 for 2, BB

Nick Pivetta loses his first AAA game, but now has 20 strikeouts in 15 innings at Lehigh Valley. That is kinda good. James Russell came on in relief and was a disaster, giving up 6 earned runs. Nick Williams has back-to-back multi-hit games and a 4-game hitting streak going. Hopefully he is snapping out of the uncharacteristically bad funk he was in. Cam Perkins stole his 10th base and is now two homeruns shy of what I guess is the equivalent of the baseball double-double club.

Akron 4, Reading 3

Ricardo Pinto - 4.2 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 4 BB, K, HR, WP, 2 HBP, 3 GB, 5 FB
Jesen Therrien - 2.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 6 K
Miguel Nunez - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Roman Quinn - 1 for 3, 2 R, HR, BB
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 3, BB
Rhys Hoskins - 1 for 3, RBI, HBP
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 4, 2 K
Scott Kingery - 0 for 4, 2 K
Gabriel Lino - 1 for 4, HR
Angelo Mora - 0 for 3, K

Ricardo Pinto was obviously a bit of a mess last night. After a strong string of starts, he has given up 8 earned runs in his last two starts. Roman Quinn remains a very fun prospect because of the different things he can do. Last night was a great example, hitting his 5th HR and working his 29th walk. His AA line across two seasons stand at .291/.356/.426 with 9 HR and 58 stolen bases in 502 at-bats, which is roughly a full season. With Quinn being on the 40 man roster, there is no doubt we will see him at some point in Philadelphia this September.

Brevard County 5, Clearwater 3

Shane Watson - 5 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, HBP, 2 GB, 5 FB
Jeff Singer - 2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, K
Ranfi Casimiro - 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER
Ulises Joaquin - 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Herlis Rodriguez - 1 for 4 (outfield assist, 3B)
Carlos Tocci - 3 for 4, R, 2B, RBI
Chace Numata - 1 for 4, RBI, (throwing error)
Aaron Brown - 0 for 4, 2 K (throwing error)
Josh Tobias - 1 for 4, K
Kyle Martin - 0 for 4, 2 K
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 4, K
Malquin Canelo - 2 for 4, 2 R, HR, K
Drew Stankiewicz - 0 for 4

Shane Watson was passable, but Jeff Singer takes his first FSL loss. After dominating the NY/Penn and South Atlantic Leagues, he has been decidedly less imposing in his time with the Threshers. Malquin Canelo hit his 4th HR of the season and Carlos Tocci had a 3-hit game. Those were about the only real highlights. Milwaukee Brewers prospect Corey Ray went 3 for 4 in the game.

Lakewood 13, Greensboro 0

Tyler Gilbert - 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 6 K, 5 GB, 2 FB
Blake Quinn - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 4 K
Scott Harris - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 K, HBP
Mark Laird - 2 for 3, R, 2B, 2 RBI, BB
Cornelius Randolph - 1 for 3, 2 R, 2 RBI, BB
Jose Pujols - 2 for 5, R, 2B, RBI, 2 K (fielding error)
Damek Tomscha - 0 for 4, HBP
Wilson Garcia - 1 fort 5, R
Jan Hernandez - 2 for 5, R, 2 2B, RBI, K
Grenny Cumana - 4 for 5, 3 R, 2B, RBI
Edgar Cabral - 1 for 4, 2 R, RBI, K, HBP
Emmanuel Marrero - 3 for 4, 2 R, 2B, 2 RBI, K

Tyler Gilbert picked up his 7th win with Lakewood and just his 3rd shutout victory this season. Cornelius Randolph feels like the forgotten prospect this season. Since coming back to Lakewood after a rehab stint in the GCL, Randolph is slashing .292/.364/.364 with 1 HR and 2 SB in 154 at-bats. The power will be slow to develop with Randolph, but you can't question the kids ability to hit the ball.

West Virginia 6, Williamsport 2

Adonis Medina - 5 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, HR, WP, HBP, 4 GB, 3 FB
Jonathan Hennigan - 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, K, WP
Kenny Koplove - 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, K, WP
Jake Kelzer - 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, K
Jesus Alastre - 0 for 5, K
Luke Maglich - 0 for 4, R, 3 K, HBP
David Martinelli - 0 for 4, K
Darick Hall - 2 for 3, R, 2B, HBP
Lucas Williams - 0 for 4, 3 K
Gregori Rivero - 2 for 4, 2B, 2 RBI
Chandler Hall - 0 for 4, K (fielding error)
Evan Rogers - 2 for 3, BB
Juan Luis - 1 for 3, BB, 2 K (outfield assist, home)

This has not been a good month for Adonis Medina. The 19 year old righty has gone 19.1 IP, 23 H, 14 ER, 11 BB, 10 K, 4 HR in his last 5 appearances. Of note, Darick Hall's 15th double last night put him tied for 3rd for the league-lead. Lucas Williams has been abysmal at the plate of late, hitting .179 in his last 10 games.

GCL Phillies 9, GCL Blue Jays 4

Sixto Sanchez - 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 5 K, 9 GB, 2 FB
Andrew Brown - 0.1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER
Jhon Nunez - 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 K
Jose Nin - 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 K, HR, HBP
Josh Stephen - 1 for 5
Jose Antequera - 2 for 4, 2 2B, BB
Mickey Moniak - 0 for 5, K
Jhailyn Ortiz - 1 for 5, R, K
Danny Zardon - 3 for 4, 2 R, 2 2B, K
Malvin Matos - 2 for 2, 2 R, RBI, BB, SB
Cole Stobbe - 1 for 3, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI, BB, 2 K
Nerluis Martinez - 2 for 4, R, RBI (missed catch error)
Rodolfo Duran - 2 for 4, HR, 4 RBI, K

Be still my heart. Sixto Sanchez Fever is sweeping the (Phillies) Nation. He was reportedly sitting 94-97 with a low 80's changeup (with one scout saying it's the best it has ever looked). So yeah, start dreaming big. Cole Stobbe hit his 4th HR of the season and is hitting .355 in his last 10 games. Rodolfo Duran added a 3-run bomb in the 8th inning, his 3rd HR of the season. Mickey Moniak has been very quiet his last 6 games, going just 2 for 23.
