Today’s Probables:

LHV: Cesar Ramos
REA: Brandon Leibrandt
CLR: Cole Irvin
WIL: TBD

Lehigh Valley 7, Pawtucket 0

Jake Thompson - 8 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K, WP, 4 GB, 6 FB (pickoff error)
John Richy - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R
J.P. Crawford - 1 for 5, RBI, K
Jorge Alfaro - 3 for 4, 2 R, BB, K
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 1, R, 3 BB, K, HBP
Rhys Hoskins - 1 for 5, R, RBI, 2 K
Nick Williams - 1 for 5, K

Pawtucket is shutout in back to back starts involving Mark Appel and now Jake Thompson. That isn’t a good look Boston. With the shutout, Thompson was able to bring his ERA to down just under 6.00. John Richy made his AAA debut last night as a reliever. J.P. Crawford returns to the lineup after spending a week on the bench due to a groin injury. Jorge Alfaro and Dylan Cozens putting up rather interesting lines last night. The former has 4 walks in his previous 5 games...to which gives him 8 on the season in 55 games. Perhaps we are seeing some adjustments!

Reading 6, Akron 4

Tommy Bergjans - 6 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 7 K, 2 HR, WP, 6 GB, 3 FB
Shane Watson - 0.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, K
Austin Davis - 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, K
Victor Arano - 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, K
Zach Coppola - 2 for 3, R, BB, K, SB
Scott Kingery - 1 for 4, R, 2B, RBI, SB
Andrew Pullin - 0 for 3, RBI
Kyle Martin - 0 for 3, K, HBP
Carlos Tocci - 1 for 3, BB
Mitch Walding - 1 for 3, HR, BB, 2 K
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 3, HR, K
Malquin Canelo - 1 for 3, HR, 2 RBI

Tommy “Don’t call me Utley” Bergjans makes his second start of the season and earns the win. The 24 year old righty actually had a no-hitter through 5 innings before giving up a leadoff HR in the 6th. Scott Kingery swipes his 18th base of the season, tying his mark in homeruns. Kingery will likely wind up being of a select few minor league players with a 20-20 season in 2017. Walding (14), Tromp (6) and Canelo (3) were all feeling the longball tonight.

Bradenton 5, Clearwater 2

Jose Tavares - 4.1 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, K, 2 HR, HBP, 4 GB, 4 FB
Harold Arauz - 2.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, BB, K
Tyler Gilbert - 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 2 K
Mark Laird - 3 for 5, 2 R, 2B
Grenny Cumana - 0 for 5
Damek Tomscha - 1 for 1
Wilson Garcia - 1 for 3, RBI, K
Herlis Rodriguez - 3 for 5, 2B, RBI
Cornelius Randolph - 0 for 1, BB
Jose Pujols - 0 for 2
Deivi Grullon - 0 for 3, BB, K
Cord Sandberg - 0 for 3, BB, K
Drew Stankiewicz - 0 for 3, BB, K (fielding error)
Emmanuel Marrero - 2 for 4, K, SB (throwing error)

Not only do they lose handily, but both Cornelius Randolph and Damek Tomscha leave the game early due to injury. Jose Tavares throws up a clunker, which is rare for the 23 year old righty. It was only his 2nd start (of 12 this season) in which he had given up more than 2 runs in a game.

SAL North All-Stars 3, SAL South All-Stars 3

Nick Fanti - 1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, K
JoJo Romero - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K
Edgar Cabral - 0 for 1

State College 5, Williamsport 3

Gustavo Armas - 4 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 2 K, WP, 2 HBP, 5 GB, 3 FB
Justin Miller - 2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, WP
Orestes Melendez - 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 K
Malvin Matos - 1 for 5, CS
Raul Rivas - 2 for 5, 2 RBI, K, SB
Jhailyn Ortiz - 0 for 4, K
Greg Pickett - 1 for 4, 3 K
Cole Stobbe - 2 for 4, HR, 2 K
Luis Encarnacion - 0 for 4, 2 K
Rodolfo Duran - 2 for 3, R, 2B, HBP
Jonathan Guzman - 1 for 3, R, BB, K
Jesus Alastre - 1 for 4

It wasn’t a great stateside debut for Armas, who had previously spent the last few seasons in the VSL (2 years) and DSL (last season). His underlying numbers in those leagues remain fairly unimpressive. Cole Stobbe building on his strong season debut a couple nights ago, hits his 2nd homer in as many games. You can check it out around the 25 second mark of this video.
