Lehigh Valley 10, Buffalo 7

Ricardo Pinto - 5.1 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 7 GB, 3 FB
Cam Perkins - 1 for 5, R, K
J.P. Crawford - 0 for 5, 2 R
Jorge Alfaro - 3 for 5, 3 R, 2B, K
Dylan Cozens - 2 for 4, 2 R, RBI, BB, K
Rhys Hoskins - 4 for 5, R, 2B, 3B, 5 RBI
Nick Williams - 2 for 5, 2 RBI, 2 K (fielding error)
Jesmuel Valentin - 0 for 4, BB (fielding error)

Remember that Ricardo Pinto from his first 4 starts (2.28 ERA) of the season? Yeah, he hasn’t done so well since. His ERA has ballooned to 5.35 in his last 3 outings. As much as we talk about Pat Venditte, Hoby Milner is having just as an impressive opening to his season. He has given up 7 hits, 0 runs, 1 walk and struck out 10 in 12.1 innings. The offense last night did things we expect from a loaded lineup. Rhys Hoskins was the rare HR away from the cycle, but raised his season slash to .348/.422/.652 in 112 at-bats. Dylan Cozens also heating up, batting .371 in his last 10 games. J.P. Crawford failed to find the holes.

Portland 5, Reading 0

Shane Watson - 6 IP, 10 H, 3 R, 3 ER, HR, WP, 9 GB, 5 FB
Scott Kingery - 3 for 4, 2B, BB, SB
Andrew Pullin - 0 for 5, K
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 2, 3 BB
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 4, 2B, 2 K
Chace Numata - 2 for 4, K
Mitch Walding - 0 for 4, 3 K
Kyle Martin - 0 for 4, 2 K (fielding error)
Malquin Canelo - 1 for 3, BB, K

Shane Watson was hit for his second loss of the season behind a not terrible, but not great start. The offense behind him went an incredible 0 for 12 with RISP and left 14 on base. Scott Kingery led the way with his 7th double and 8th stolen base on the season. Kingery’s line is up to .292/.382/.593 with 7 HR in 113 at-bats.

Clearwater 2, Tampa 0

Alberto Tirado - 5 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 5 BB, 3 K, 7 GB, 2 FB
Matt Hockenberry - 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 K
Austin Davis - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, K
Jeff Singer - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, K
Zach Coppola - 1 for 4, RBI
Cornelius Randolph - 1 for 4, R, 3B, 2 K
Damek Tomscha - 1 for 3, RBI, BB
Deivi Grullon - 2 for 4, 2 K
Jose Pujols - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K
Herlis Rodriguez - 1 for 3, BB
Jan Hernandez - 0 for 4, 4 K (fielding error)
Drew Stankiewicz - 0 for 4, 3 K
Grenny Cumana - 1 for 2, R, HBP

Alberto Tirado had a wild start, but came out of it with a win. He threw only 39 of his 77 pitches for strikes and was aided by 3 doubleplays to get out of jams. Tirado has 18 walks in 28.1 innings this season. I just can’t see him succeeding (as a starter anyway) at the higher levels. Cornelius Randolph hit his first triple of the season in the 1st and was singled in by Tomscha for the eventual winning run.

Greenville 6, Lakewood 5

Ranger Suarez - 6 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, HR, 13 GB, 0 FB
Ismael Cabrera - 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, K, HR
Felix Paulino - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K
Daniel Brito - 1 for 4, R, BB, 2 K, SB
Raul Rivas - 0 for 4, R, BB
Mickey Moniak - 1 for 4, R, 2B, BB, 2 K
Darick Hall - 2 for 5, 2 R, 2 RBI, 2 K
Henri Lartigue - 4 for 4, 2B, RBI, BB, SB
Luke Williams - 0 for 4, RBI, 2 K
Edgar Cabral - 1 for 4, 2B
David Martinelli - 0 for 3, BB, K
Carlos Duran - 1 for 3, K

Ranger Suarez delivered his first clunker of the season, but that GB/FB though! Suarez allowed the Drive to tie the game before exiting. Ismael Cabrera gave up the go-ahead run in the 8th and took his first loss. The BlueClaws offense put up a 4-spot in the 1st inning via Darick Hall and Henri Lartigue singles. Moniak’s double was his 8th and Brito’s stolen base his 7th.
