Scranton/WB 2, Lehigh Valley 0

Mark Appel - 4.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 5 GB, 4 FB (pickoff error)
Cam Perkins - 1 for 4, 2 K
J.P. Crawford - 1 for 4, 3B
Jorge Alfaro - 1 for 4, K
Dylan Cozens - 1 for 4, 2 K
Rhys Hoskins - 1 for 3, 2B, BB
Nick Williams - 0 for 3, 2 K
Jesmuel Valentin - 1 for 3, K

The final line for Mark Appel is a bit deceiving at first glance. Through his first 4 innings he gave up a grand total of 2 baserunners (walk and single). Of course, things fell apart rather quickly in the 5th when he gave up 3 hits and issued two walks that led to the only two runs of the game. The offense couldn’t get much going, going 0 for 6 with RISP and leaving 5 on base. J.P. Crawford with only his 2nd hit of the season, but his first for extra bases. Jorge Alfaro has now hit safely in his first 4 games of the season, all of which have been singles. The same applies to that Jesmuel Valentin fella.

Reading 9, New Hampshire 7

Shane Watson - 5 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, HR, WP, 5 GB, 3 FB
Alexis Rivero - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB, 3 K
Jesen Therrien - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K
Matt Hockenberry - 0.1 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, K
Yacksel Rios - 0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 K
Scott Kingery - 1 for 4, R, RBI, SB
Andrew Pullin - 2 for 5, R, 2 2B, RBI, K
Carlos Tocci - 2 for 5, 2 R
Kyle Martin - 1 for 5, HR, 3 RBI, K
Chace Numata - 3 for 4, 2 2B, HR, 2 RBI, BB (passed ball)
Mitch Walding - 0 for 5, K
Jiandido Tromp - 2 for 4, 2 R, 2B, HR, 2 K
Aaron Brown - 1 for 4, 2 K (outfield assist, 3B)
Malquin Canelo - 2 for 4, R, K

The game was a quite the slugfest with both teams combining for 25 hits last night. Shane Watson earned the win and threw 55 of his 94 pitches for strikes. Matt Hockenberry made things a bit dicey in the bottom of the 9th when the Fisher Cats scored 3 to close the gap to just 2 runs. Kyle Martin hit a 2-run HR in the 1st, his 2nd HR in his first 4 games. Jiandido Tromp and Chace Numata both hit their first dingers of the season. Numata is now 6 for 12 in his first 3 games.

Clearwater 5, Lakeland 0

Alberto Tirado - 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 3 K, 2 WP, 11 GB, 1 FB
Luke Leftwich - 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 6 K
Herlis Rodriguez - 2 for 4, 3B, RBI, BB (outfield assist, 3B)
Cornelius Randolph - 2 for 5, 2B, RBI
Damek Tomscha - 0 for 4, BB
Jose Pujols - 0 for 5, 4 K
Wilson Garcia - 1 for 5, 2 K
Deivi Grullon - 2 for 4, R
Jan Hernandez - 1 for 4, R, 2 K
Grenny Cumana - 1 for 4, 2 R, 2B
Emmanuel Marrero - 1 for 3, R, RBI, BB

Before I recap, I do have to mention that there is a player on Lakeland named Joey Pankake and I will never not laugh to myself when I read it. Anyway, Alberto Tirado was fairly economical despite the 4 walks, throwing 43 of his 76 pitches for strikes. After a disastrous 1st outing for Leftwich (6 H, 5 ER in 0.2 IP), he dazzles with a 3 inning shutout, which included striking out the side in the 9th. Cornelius Randolph had his first multi-hit game of the season and double. 4 of his 5 hits this season have been either a double (1) or homerun (3). Meanwhile, Jose Pujols has 10 strikeouts in his first 18 at-bats with no homeruns and Herlis Rodriguez is starting off sizzling with 6 hits in 11 at-bats.

Hagerstown 5, Lakewood 4

Nick Fanti - 5.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, HR, 6 GB, 4 FB (throwing error)
Zach Morris - 1.1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, K
Jonathan Hennigan - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Daniel Brito - 2 for 3, 2B, HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB, K
Arquimedes Gamboa - 1 for 5, R, K
Mickey Moniak - 1 for 4, 2 K
Brett Barbier - 0 for 4, RBI, K
Lucas Williams - 0 for 4, 2 K
Alex Wojciechowski - 1 for 4, K
Cord Sandberg - 3 for 4, R, 2B, K (outfield assist, home)
Edgar Cabral - 0 for 4
David Martinelli - 0 for 3, R, BB

The 20 year old Nick Fanti got his first full-season start last night after spending the last two seasons in the Gulf Coast League. The 5.2 IP were actually a career-high for him. Fanti was a 31st Round pick in the 2015 draft. Zach Morris missed the bell and took the loss for the game. Daniel Brito is building up his hype train with another monster game, hitting his first HR and double of the season. He has 8 hits in his first 20 at-bats, including 3 stolen bases. Mickey Moniak with a quieter night, but has still hit safely in all 5 games this season (.381/.435/.524). While he is repeating Lakewood as a 22 year old after failing out of High-A ball last season, Cord Sandberg has had a strong first 5 games.
