Lehigh Valley 6, Scranton W/B 0

Zach Eflin - 5 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 4 K, 4 GB, 5 FB
Pat Venditte - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 3 K
Hoby Milner - 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 K, HBP
Roman Quinn - 3 for 5, 3 R, 2B, SB (outfield assist, 2B)

Cam Perkins - 0 for 4, BB, 2 K
Jesmuel Valentin - 0 for 3, R, K, HBP

Zach Eflin was activated from the DL yesterday and assigned to LHV where he made his first AAA start of the season. He had a little trouble with the strikezone yesterday, but wasn’t punished for any runs (he was helped by a double-play and outfield assist). Roman Quinn steals his first of what I’m sure will be plenty of bases this season. Things are still a bit rough for Crawford in the early going, but hits in his last two games are at least encouraging signs (the high strikeouts are obviously not). Jorge Alfaro extended his hitting streak to 5 games.

Brandon Leibrandt win his first career AA start after spending the last two seasons at High-A Clearwater. Leibrandt was limited to just 10 starts (6 in CLR) last season due to injuries. The offense was powered behind him by Scott Kingery and Angelo Mora’s first dingers of the season. Andrew Pullin added his 2nd HR of the season, a solo shot in the 5th inning. Carlos Tocci with a 4-game hitting streak and back-to-back multi-hit games. He is 7 for 21 in the early going of the season.

Clearwater 4, Lakeland 2

Blake Quinn - 4.2 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 4 K, WP, HBP, 5 GB, 2 FB
Austin Davis - 2.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, 3 K
Tyler Gilbert - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, K
Jacob Waguespack - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, K
Zack Coppola - 2 for 4, RBI, K, CS

Grenny Cumana - 0 for 3, K

2016 9th Round Pick Blake Quinn makes his full-season debut, but doesn’t pick up the win. With the Threshers down 2-1 in the bottom of the 7th, Drew Stankiewicz laced a 2-RBI double to put them ahead. Grullon and Hernandez reached based in the first two at-bats to get the inning started. Randolph provided the insurance run later in the inning with a single to score Stankiewicz. Speaking of Randolph, he has a 5-game hitting streak and back-to-back multi-hit games. His season line at this point is .269/.321/.654 with 3 HR in 26 at-bats.

Hagerstown 4, Lakewood 3 (15 innings)

Bailey Falter - 5 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 K, 7 GB, 2 FB
Daniel Brito - 3 for 7, R, 2 K (fielding error)
Arquimedes Gamboa - 0 for 2, RBI, BB
Lucas Williams - 1 for 3
Mickey Moniak - 0 for 7, RBI, 4 K, CS
Alex Wojciechowski - 0 for 7, 2 K
Cord Sandberg - 2 for 6, BB, 2 K, SB
Danny Zardon - 1 for 6, BB, 3 K
David Martinelli - 1 for 6, R
Edgar Cabral - 2 for 6, R, K
Carlos Duran - 0 for 4, 2 BB, 2 K

Bailey Falter makes his full-season debut and left the game with a 2-1 lead. Felix Paulino relieved him and “blew the save” in the 6th allowing 2 runs and the lead. 9th inning heroics allowed the BlueClaws to tie the game after David Martinelli reached base to open the inning on a fielding error and eventually came around to score. Harold Arauz came into the game in the 15th, gave up a lead-off walk and allowed a double to the next batter to lose the game. This wasn’t a great game for the offense, as they went just 1 for 12 with RISP and leaving 12 on base. Mickey Moniak’s 5-game hitting streak comes to an end with an ugly 4 K performance. While Moniak has been hitting the ball well to begin the season, he has racked up 10 strikeouts to only 1 walk in his first 28 at-bats.
