Today's Probables:

LHV: David Buchanan
REA: Tyler Viza
CLR: Luke Leftwich
LWD: Jose Tavares
WIL: Adonis Medina

Scranton/WB 7, Lehigh Valley 0

Gregory Infante - 2.2 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, HR
Joely Rodriguez - 2.1 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 3 K
Darnell Sweeney - 1 for 3, BB, K, picked off
J.P. Crawford - 0 for 2, 2 BB, SB
Nick Williams - 0 for 4, K
Andrew Knapp - 0 for 4, 3 K (two passed balls)
Cam Perkins - 1 for 3
Brock Stassi - 0 for 3, K
Jesmuel Valentin - 0 for 3, K

Phil Klein gets the call up to the majors after Aaron Nola is put on the DL for an elbow strain. The newly promoted Infante and Rodriguez combine for all the runs given up to the RailRiders. The IronPig offense churn out just two hits and three walks, going 0 for 3 with RISP and leaving 5 on base. They were shutdown by Dietrich Enns, who sounds like an arms dealer from a Bond movie. Crawford's stolen base was his 7th with LHV. 

Reading 13, Bowie 0

Tom Eshelman - 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 5 K, 8 GB, 3 FB
Mario Hollands - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 K
Victor Arano - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R
Scott Kingery - 1 for 5, 2 R, RBI, BB, 2 K, SB
Andrew Pullin - 2 for 6, R, RBI, 3 K
Jorge Alfaro - 1 for 4, 2 R, RBI, BB, K, HBP
Dylan Cozens - 4 for 5, 4 R, 3B, 3 HR, 7 RBI, SB
Rhys Hoskins - 2 for 3, HR, BB

Dylan Cozens breaks out of his long slump at the plate to hit 3 dingers (28, 29 and 30 of the season). They included two solo shots and one 3-run homer. Hoskins kept pace and hit a solo HR himself, his 31st. Just because he is a good due, lets also mention that Jake Fox hit his 20th in the game as well. That's his most in a season since he hit 38 in 2014. Tom Eshelman comes off the 7-day DL and was brilliant and most certainly a surprise given his struggles in Reading. Victor Arano made his debut in Reading with a scoreless inning of work.

Dunedin 7, Clearwater 2

Brandon Leibrandt - 5 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, HR, WP, 5 GB, 3 FB
Jairo Munoz - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB, K, WP
Tom Windle - 2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 2 K, HR
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 5, R
Josh Tobias - 1 for 3, 2B, 2 BB, K
Chace Numata - 1 for 5, RBI, K
Zach Green - 1 for 4, 2 K
Mitch Walding - 2 for 4, R, 2 K
Jiandido Tromp - 2 for 4, 2B, K
Herlis Rodriguez - 0 for 3, RBI, K
Malquin Canelo - 2 for 4, 2B
Drew Stankiewicz - 0 for 3, BB, K (throwing error)

Brandon Leibrandt finally makes it back to the Threshers after nearly a year (his last start with the Threshers was Aug. 4, 2015). It didn't go smoothly and it was topped off by another poor Tom Windle performance. Josh Tobias is now 12 for 26 in his first 7 games in Clearwater (.462/.485/.577). Jiandido Tromp is batting .286 in his last 10 games with only 8 strikeouts to 5 walks.

Greensboro 3, Lakewood 1 (GM1 of doubleheader, 7 innings)

Seranthony Dominguez - 3.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 5 K, HR, 2 GB, 3 FB
Austin Davis - 2.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 6 K
Zack Coppola - 0 for 4, 3 K
Grenny Cumana - 1 for 3
Cornelius Randolph - 0 for 3, 2 K
Damek Tomscha - 2 for 3, R, 2 2B
Jose Pujols - 1 for 3, RBI
Wilson Garcia - 1 for 3, K
Deivi Grullon - 2 for 3 (passed ball)
Carlos Duran - 0 for 3, K
Emmanuel Marrero - 0 for 2, 2 K

Seranthony Dominguez ran into trouble in the 4th inning in which he gave up all 3 earned runs. The big blow was a 2-run HR. In his last 10 games Deivi Grullon is batting .314.

Greensboro 4, Lakewood 1 (GM2 of doubleheader, 7 innings, makeup of 8/2 ppd)

Franklyn Kilome - 4 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 3 ER, BB, 5 K, 5 GB, 1 FB
Jacob Waguespack - 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, 3 K
Grenny Cumana - 2 for 4, R
Cornelius Randolph - 1 for 1, 3 BB
Damek Tomscha - 0 for 4
Jose Pujols - 1 for 3, 2B, RBI
Wilson Garcia - 1 for 3 (throwing error)
Carlos Duran - 1 for 1, 2 BB
Jan Hernandez - 0 for 3
Brendon Hayden - 0 for 3, K
William Cuicas - 0 for 1, 2 BB (throwing error)

Franklyn Kilome ran into trouble in the first inning (gave up all 4 of his runs), but then settled in nicely. Once again, the offense couldn't capitalize between their 6 hits and 7 walks in the game (1 for 10 with RISP). Randolph with an impressive 3 walk game to improve his Lakewood line to .246/.347/.310. While that may not look impressive, he has been dealing with shoulder issues and those are notoriously tough to come back from. Give it time.

Staten Island 4, Williamsport 1

Bailey Falter - 6 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 ER, BB, K, 11 GB, 2 FB
Jonathan Hennigan - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB, 4 K
Kenny Koplove - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB, 3 K
Mark Laird - 0 for 4, 2 K
Jesus Alastre - 1 for 4
David Martinelli - 1 for 4, 2 K
Darick Hall - 1 for 4, 2 K
Lucas Williams - 0 for 3, BB
Henri Lartigue - 1 for 3, BB (passed ball)
Luis Encarnacion - 0 for 4, 2 K
Chandler Hall - 1 for 3, HR, K
Luis Espiritu - 0 for 3 (fielding error)

Bailey Falter gives up a season-high 4 earned runs. In his previous 7 starts he had given up 3 runs or less. The offense got out-hit 9 to 5 and produced their only run via a solo HR from Chandler Hall, his first of the season.

GCL Phillies 4, GCL Braves 3 (6 innings due to rain)

Will Stewart - 5 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 3 K, HR, HBP, 9 GB, 4 FB
Luis Gonzalez - 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, K
Daniel Brito - 1 for 2, R, RBI, 2 BB, K (fielding error)
Cole Stobbe - 0 for 3, K (fielding error)
Mickey Moniak - 1 for 3, 2B, RBI
Jhailyn Ortiz - 1 for 2, BB (outfield assist, home)
Malvin Matos - 1 for 3, R, 2B, K
Nerluis Martinez - 0 for 3
Jose Antequera - 0 for 3 
Ben Pelletier - 2 for 2, 2 R, 2B, HBP
Raul Rivas - 2 for 3, RBI

Rain might be the only thing to stop Mickey Moniak from destroying a pitcher's psyche at this point. With another extra base-hit, he improves his line to .327/.396/.459 with 1 HR and 7 steals. It's completely up in the air with what might happen with Moniak before the end of the season. Daniel Brito has also been impressive this season. In his first season stateside, the 18 year old from Venezuela is slashing .293/.373/.405 with 6 steals. The 2B talent-pool in the organization is very strong right now.
