Phillies Minor League Roundup for 5/2/17

MLB: Spring Training-New York Yankees at Philadelphia Phillies Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Today’s Probables:

LHV: Cesar Ramos
REA: Drew Anderson (11:35 start on MiLB.tv)
CLR: Franklyn Kilome (12:00 start)
LWD: JoJo Romero (11:05 start on MiLB.tv)

Lehigh Valley 11, Scranton W/B 7

Mark Appel - 4 IP, 11 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 5 K, 2 HR, WP, 3 GB, 3 FB
Hoby Milner - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 K
Cam Perkins - 3 for 4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI, BB, K
J.P. Crawford - 0 for 3, RBI, BB
Jorge Alfaro - 3 for 5, 2 R, RBI, 2 K
Dylan Cozens - 3 for 4, 2 R, 3B, 2 RBI
Rhys Hoskins - 2 for 3, 3 R, HR, 3 RBI, 2 BB
Nick Williams - 0 for 3, BB, K, HBP
Jesmuel Valentin - 0 for 5, R, K

Mark Appel might be bad, but it didn’t matter last night because the offense (minus Roman Quinn) was electric. Rhys Hoskins hit his league-leading 7th HR as seen here. Cam Perkins, who is now slashing .311/.407/.554 on the season, hit is 3rd HR last night. Dylan Cozens with just his 3rd multi-hit game of the season. J.P. Crawford sadly saw his 5-game hitting streak come to an end.

Reading 7, New Hampshire 2

Tom Eshelman - 7 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 4 K, HBP, 7 GB, 3 FB
Scott Kingery - 3 for 5, 2 R, RBI, SB
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 4, HR, 2 RBI, BB
Carlos Tocci - 3 for 5, R, 2B, 3B, RBI, K
Kyle Martin - 0 for 2, RBI, BB, K
Chace Numata - 0 for 4, K
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 4, HR, 2 K, SB
Angelo Mora - 1 for 4, R
Malquin Canelo - 1 for 3, RBI, K

Tom Eshelman carried a no-hitter into the 7th inning before giving up a lead-off triple (who subsequently scored on a groundout to the next batter). Eshelman has quietly been doing very well in the early season. He has a 3.10 ERA in 29 IP, with 22 strikeouts to 5 walks. Scott Kingery, clearly reading the MLR yesterday, broke out of his mini-slump at the plate to raise his season slash to .299/.396/.636 in 77 AB. Andrew Pullin and Jiandido Tromp both hit some dingers, their 6th and 3rd of the season, respectively. Also little talked about (because someone will inevitably bring up his OPS), but Carlos Tocci is batting .321 in 78 AB. The defensive stud OF has improved offensively each of the past 3 seasons.

Jupiter 2, Clearwater 0

Jose Tavares - 7.1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 8 K, 6 GB, 5 FB
Mark Laird - 2 for 4, 2 K
Cornelius Randolph - 0 for 4, K
Herlis Rodriguez - 0 for 4, 2 K
Damek Tomscha - 1 for 4, 2 K
Jose Pujols - 0 for 4, 2 K
Wilson Garcia - 0 for 3, BB, K
Deivi Grullon - 3 for 4, K
Grenny Cumana - 0 for 3, SB
Emmanuel Marrero - 0 for 2, BB, K

This was just one of those games where you out-hit the opponent 6-3 and still lose the game. Jose Tavares gave up a 2-spot in the 6th and that was all she wrote. It didn’t help that the offense had 12 strikeouts and left 8 men on base. Deivi Grullon extended his hitting streak to 7 games. Cornelius Randolph has been struggling at the plate, batting a unsightly .154 in his last 10 games.

Lakewood 3, Charleston 2

Bailey Falter - 5 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 K, HR, WP, 5 GB, 4 FB
Daniel Brito - 1 for 5, R, 2B, K
Henri Lartigue - 1 for 5, R, RBI, SB
Mickey Moniak - 1 for 4, K
Darick Hall - 1 for 4, R, 2B, RBI, K
Luke Williams - 3 for 4, 2 2B, SB
Cord Sandberg - 1 for 3, BB, K
Danny Zardon - 0 for 4
David Martinelli - 1 for 4, 2 K
Jose Antequera - 1 for 2, 2B, K, HBP

Bailey Falter hung on to earn his first win of the season as the BlueClaws scored 3 in the top of the 6th to pull ahead. The winning run actually came via a passed ball to score Darick Hall (who earlier in the inning doubled in Lartigue to tie the game).
