Today’s Probables:

LHV: Tom Eshelman
REA: Drew Anderson
CLR: Jacob Waguespack
LWD: TBD
WIL: Julian Garcia

Lehigh Valley 6, Pawtucket 3

Cesar Ramos - 6 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 2 K, HR, 5 GB, 3 FB
J.P. Crawford - 1 for 5, 2B, 4 RBI, 2 K
Rhys Hoskins - 2 for 3, 2 BB
Dylan Cozens - 1 for 5, 3 K
Nick Williams - 0 for 3, R, BB

The IronPigs make this one exciting, scoring 5 runs in the top of the 9th and doing so with just 3 hits in the inning. They received help via an error and 3 walks. J.P. Crawford played the hero, lacing a 3-run double to take the lead. It’s mostly a meaningless stat and this pitcher isn’t very good, but Pedro Beato notched his 22nd save of the season last night. That is best in the International League with the next closest competitor having just 10.

Reading 11, Akron 2

Brandon Leibrandt - 6 IP, 7 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K, 4 GB, 5 FB
Tom Windle - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 K
Alexis Rivero - 1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, HR
Zach Coppola - 2 for 4, RBI, K, SB
Scott Kingery - 2 for 4, K, SB, CS
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI, SB
Carlos Tocci - 2 for 5, R, RBI, K
Mitch Walding - 1 for 5, 2B (missed catch error)
Jiandido Tromp - 3 for 4, 2 R, 2B, HR, K
Malquin Canelo - 2 for 3, 2 R, 2 RBI, BB, SB

Brandon Leibrandt earns his 6th save and has had a pretty good run as of late. In his last 6 starts he has compiled: 37.1 IP, 38 H, 7 ER, 14 BB, 23 K. The walk-rate remains high, but it has been an encouraging stretch for the 24 yr old lefty. Andrew Pullin swats his 14th HR and Jiandido Tromp contributes his 7th. That is back-to-back games with a dinger for Tromp. Scott Kingery steals his 19th base, which is just one off the league-lead. Despite having one homerun in his last 16 games, Kingery still leads the league in that category.

Clearwater 5, Bradenton 4

Cole Irvin - 7 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 6 GB, 6 FB
Matt Hockenberry - 0.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, K, 2 HR
Jeff Singer - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, K
Mark Laird - 2 for 5, R, RBI
Grenny Cumana - 0 for 4, R, BB, K
Herlis Rodriguez - 1 for 3, BB, K, SB
Wilson Garcia - 1 for 4, HR, 3 RBI, K
Cornelius Randolph - 0 for 3, BB
Jan Hernandez - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K, SB
Drew Stankiewicz - 0 for 1, R, 3 BB, CS
Austin Bossart - 1 for 4, R, K
Emmanuel Marrero - 1 for 4, 2 K

Cole Irvin gets his first win since April 28th and first time going into the 7th since April 21st. Still, the 23 year old lefty sports a 2.55 ERA and 52/14 strikeout to walk ratio in 67 innings this season. Wilson Garcia got the offense started with his 5th HR of the season. A late surge against Temple alum Matt Hockenberry gave the Threshers a scare, but Jeff Singer held it down with his 14th save.

West Virginia 7, Williamsport 2

Will Stewart - 4 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, K, WP, 8 GB, 3 FB
Jhon Nunez - 3 IP, 3 H, 0 R, BB, 2 K
Randy Alcantara - 2 IP, 2 H, 4 R, 3 ER, BB, K
Raul Rivas - 0 for 2, BB, K, SB, CS
Josh Stephen - 1 for 4, RBI, K (fielding error)
Jhailyn Ortiz - 0 for 4, K (fielding error)
Greg Pickett - 1 for 4, 2B, K
Cole Stobbe - 1 for 4, R, 2 K (throwing error)
Gregori Rivero - 1 for 2, 2B, RBI (passed ball)
James Lovett - 0 for 2, 2 K
Rodolfo Duran - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K
Jonathan Guzman - 0 for 2, BB
Juan Luis - 1 for 3, R, 2B

After spending the last 2 seasons with the GCL Phillies with mixed results, Will Stewart finally makes his Williamsport debut. The 20th round pick out of the 2015 draft didn’t fare quite well, throwing just 37 of his 72 pitches for strikes. It probably didn’t help that the defense around him (and his fellow pitchers) was less than stellar. The offense however went 1 for 8 with RISP and left 5 on-base. 19 year old Cole Stobbe has opened the season with hits in all 3 games (4 for 11). Greg Pickett has done the same, but has racked up 7 strikeouts already in the process.
