Lehigh Valley 10, Indianapolis 6

Mark Appel - 2.2 IP, 4 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 6 BB, K, HR, WP, 2 GB, 4 FB
Ricardo Pinto - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, K
Roman Quinn - 2 for 4, 2 R, HR, BB
J.P. Crawford - 0 for 5, RBI

Rhys Hoskins - 3 for 3, 4 R, 2B, HR
Nick Williams - 1 for 1, HR, 3 RBI
Cam Perkins - 1 for 2, 2B, 2 RBI, K

Hoo boy, Mark Appel has been a disaster this season. It’s only a matter of time before we see him out of the bullpen; even then I’m not sure that turns out well either. Thankfully, the bullpen held out (highlighted by Ricardo Pinto’s first appearance as a reliever this season) and the offense remains a monster. Seemingly ticked off that fellow org teammate Scott Kingery leads the minors in HR, Rhys Hoskins swats his 13th to get within one of Sir Scott. Roman Quinn launched his 2nd of the year and is seeing the ball well lately, batting .289 in his last 10 games with 6 walks to 7 strikeouts. Nick Williams came in as a pinch hitter and hit a homer as well, his 6th. Williams extended his hitting streak to 7 games. J.P. Crawford, after looking like he was turning things around, is now 0 for 12 in his last 3 games.

Brandon Leibrandt - 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 6 GB, 4 FB
Austin Davis - 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, K
Jesen Therrien - 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, K
Malquin Canelo - 0 for 4, 4 K
Angelo Mora - 0 for 4, K
Scott Kingery - 0 for 4, 2 K
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 3
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 3, K
Kyle Martin - 1 for 3, K
Chace Numata - 0 for 3, K
Aaron Brown - 1 for 3, K

Brandon Leibrandt takes his 3rd loss despite arguably his best start of the season. The offense behind him was shut down by Yankees prospect Domingo Acevedo. Reading had 1 runner in scoring position all game and worked no walks (to 12 strikeouts). With a hit yesterday Andrew Pullin extended his on-base streak to 11 games, where he is hitting .425/.500/.650 over that span.

Clearwater, Florida (ppd due to rain, DH today)

Lakewood 3, Greensboro 0

Ranger Suarez - 7.2 IP, 4 H, 0 R, BB, 10 K, 9 GB, 1 FB
Will Hibbs - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 4 K, HBP
Carlos Duran - 1 for 4, R, 2B
Raul Rivas - 0 for 3, R, BB
Brett Barbier - 3 for 4, 2B, RBI, SB
Darick Hall - 1 for 4, RBI, 2 K
Henri Lartigue - 0 for 4, RBI, K
Cord Sandberg - 0 for 4
Luke Williams - 1 for 3, K
David Martinelli - 0 for 2, BB, K, SB
Jose Antequera - 0 for 3, K

Ranger Suarez is back to his old self after a couple of rocky performances of late. This was the second start this season (out of 8 total) that he’s reached double digits in strikeouts. Suarez has 56 strikeouts to 13 walks in 44.2 innings. Look for a promotion in the next few weeks. The offense was powered by Brett Barbier, who is batting .344 in his last 10 games. His stolen base and Martinelli’s were their first of the season.
