Weekend Probables:

LHV: David Buchanan, Anthony Vasquez, Ben Lively
REA: Tom Eshelman, Tyler Viza, TBD
CLR: Luke Leftwich, Will Morris, Drew Anderson
LWD: Seranthony Dominguez, Franklyn Kilome, Jose Tavares
WIL: JoJo Romero, Ranger Suarez, Felix Paulino

Lehigh Valley 6, Pawtucket 1

Phil Klein - 7.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 7 K, HR, 8 GB, 5 FB
J.P. Crawford - 2 for 5
Nick Williams - 0 for 5, 4 K
Cam Perkins - 1 for 4, 2B
Brock Stassi - 1 for 3, 2 R, HR, BB, 2 K
Logan Moore - 2 for 4, HR, 2 RBI, K
Darnell Sweeney - 1 for 3, 3B, BB, K

Phil Klein was good once again. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets a start or two (or more likely relief appearances) in Philly once LHV season ends. J.P. Crawford with two more hits last night, giving him base hits in 8 of his last 10 games. Brock Stassi launched his 12th HR and Logan Moore added his 4th with LHV. Darin Ruf hit his 20th HR and Cody Asche his 4th last night, if you like keeping track of those sort of things. Nick Williams is a bit of a mess right now, but that's okay because he is playing the game the right way.

Reading 6, New Hampshire 1

John Richy - 8 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 K, 12 GB, 5 FB
Jimmy Cordero - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, K
Roman Quinn - 3 for 5, 2 R, 2B, HR, 2 RBI, K
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 4, 2B, K
Jorge Alfaro - 1 for 4, RBI, K, SB
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 4, 3 K
Rhys Hoskins - 1 for 3, R, BB, K, SB
Mitch Walding - 0 for 2, BB, 2 K
Angelo Mora - 1 for 3, R, RBI, BB, K

"Good" John Richy made another appearance last night, going a season-high 8 innings. Since being recalled back to Reading, he has gone: 19.2 IP, 15 H, 5 ER, 3 BB, 16 K. Lets see if he can keep this up. Someone might have to fan off Wet Luzinski after another scorching performance from Roman Quinn. That was his 6th HR with Reading and his 3rd HR in his last 4 games. Jorge Alfaro steals his 3rd base before he gets the call up to the Phillies. Hoskins stole his 8th base. Dylan Cozens brought his strikeout total to 165 in 476 at-bats.

Clearwater 5, Brevard County 2

Elniery Garcia - 7 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 7 K, HR, 6 GB, 4 FB
Austin Davis - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K
Ulises Joaquin - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 K
Zack Coppola - 0 for 3, R, BB, K
Josh Tobias - 1 for 4, R, 2 K
Carlos Tocci - 1 for 4, K
Aaron Brown - 1 for 3, R, 2 RBI, BB
Kyle Martin - 1 for 4, R, 2B, RBI, 2 K (fielding error)
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 4, HR, 2 RBI
Drew Stankiewicz - 1 for 3
Malquin Canelo - 2 for 3, 2B
Austin Bossart - 0 for 3, K

Elniery Garcia moves to 11-4 with one of his best performances of the season. Jiandido Tromp hit his 8th HR with Clearwater last night, his 18th this year across two levels. The toolsy outfielder from Aruba could finally be putting it together. Kyle Martin's fielding error last night was his first error this season. 

Lakewood 4, Greensboro 2

Alberto Tirado - 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 11 K, 3 GB, 0 FB
Ismael Cabrera - 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 5 K, WP
Jacob Waguespack - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 K
Sutter McLoughlin - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K
Mark Laird - 2 for 5, R, 2B, RBI
Cornelius Randolph - 2 for 4, R, 3B, RBI, BB, K
Jose Pujols - 0 for 4, 2 K
Damek Tomscha - 2 for 4, 2B, 3B, RBI, 2 K
Wilson Garcia - 1 for 4, RBI, K
Deivi Grullon - 1 for 4, 2 K
Jan Hernandez - 0 for 4, 2 K
Grenny Cumana - 2 for 4, R
Emmanuel Marrero - 2 for 3, R, BB

Alberto Tirado improves to 6-1 and now has 92 strikeouts in 58.2 IP this season. Sure, he has 41 walks to go with that, but the stuff is there. Mid-upper 90's fastball with movement and a wipeout slider. It's okay to dream big on this. Overall, the BlueClaws struckout 20 batters last night. Cornelius Randolph upped his season batting average to .284 after the game. He turned 19 not even two months ago.

West Virginia 4, Williamsport 3 (10 innings)

Cole Irvin - 5 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, WP, 11 GB, 1 FB
Julian Garcia - 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 8 K, 4 GB, 0 FB, WP
Will Hibbs - 0.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB
Evan Rogers - 1 for 4, R, 2B, BB, K
Luke Maglich - 0 for 4, BB
David Martinelli - 2 for 5, RBI, K, SB (outfield assist, 2B)
Brett Barbier - 0 for 5, 2 K
Henri Lartigue - 0 for 4, K
Enmanuel Garcia - 1 for 4, R, 2B, K
Luis Encarnacion - 0 for 2, 2 BB, K
Luis Espiritu - 1 for 4, 2B, 2 RBI, K (3 fielding errors)
Chandler Hall - 1 for 4, K

Cole Irvin pitches okay, but is brutalized by Luis Epsiritu in the field. Espiritu makes up for those lapses by hitting a 2-run double to tie the game in the top of the 9th. David Martinelli was the other lone offensive bright spot, swiping his 7th base on top of his two hits.

GCL Phillies 7, GCL Blue Jays 2

Kyle Young - 4 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 3 K
Jordan Kurokawa - 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, 2 K
Oskerlly Sanchez - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K
Randy Alcantara - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Tyler Frohwirth - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K, HBP
Josh Stephen - 0 for 4, BB, 2 K
Jose Antequera - 2 for 5, R, 2B
Mickey Moniak - 3 for 5, 2 R, 2 2B, 3B, RBI, K
Danny Zardon - 1 for 4, 2 R, 2 RBI
Malvin Matos - 1 for 4, 2B, BB, SB
Nerluis Martinez - 1 for 5, R, 2 RBI, K
Cole Stobbe - 1 for 5, 2 K
Lenin Rodriguez - 3 for 4, RBI, BB
Ben Pelletier - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K

Mickey Moniak is right back on track (to steal our hearts) after his last less than stellar 6-game stretch. The triple was his 4th of the season and his doubles were number 10 and 11. Malvin Matos stole his 10th base in the game and hit his 11th double.
