Thursday’s Probables:

Lehigh Valley: Ben Lively vs. Rochester

Reading: Tyler Viza vs. Binghamton

Clearwater: Edgar Garcia vs. Bradenton

Lakewood: Mauricio Llovera vs. Rome

Williamsport: Julian Garcia vs. Connecticut, completion of 7/12 game

Triple-A All-Star Game

Jorge Alfaro: 0 for 2, 2K
Tom Eshelman: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 1 HR

Despite being invited, Dylan Cozens and Rhys Hoskins chose not to participate in the game. Pedro Beato, who had made the team in the initial announcement, turned down the invite weeks ago, wanting to spend time with his family during the short break. It was a bit of a surprise that Cozens did not play, but less of a surprise that Hoskins took off, seeing that he played in the Futures Game Sunday.

Eastern League All-Star Game

Carlos Tocci: 2 for 4, 1 R
Jiandido Tromp: 0 for 3, 1 K
Mitch Walding: 0 for 2, 1 K
Drew Anderson: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K (W)
Yacksel Rios: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 B, 0 K

Cesar Hernandez is back in action, as he joined the Threshers to begin his rehab assignment. He went 0-for-1 with a walk and a run scored before getting the rest of the day off.

It was a big day for Cornelius Randolph, who went 3-for-4 with an RBI. Wilson Garcia and Jan Hernandez each had two hits in the win.

Jacob Waguespack started for Clearwater and went six innings, allowing four earned runs in the process.

Lakewood 6, Rome 1 [box]

The Phillies have been careful with Sixto Sanchez all year long, typically holding him to around five innings or 80 pitches each start. But with his pitch count down and his stuff looking good, Sanchez pushed through six innings for the Blue Claws for only the second time this season. He allowed just three hits and one run while striking out four and walking one.

Sanchez reportedly hit 101 on the gun, and sat 95-100 with his fastball on the evening.

Henri Lartigue hit his 6th homerun of the season, a two-run blast in the third inning. Arquimedes Gamboa had a three-hit night as well.

Francisco Morales got the ball for the GCL club, lasting just 2 23 innings. He gave up three hits and four runs, though none of them were earned. He walked four and struck out four.

Quincy Nieporte went 3-for-4 for the Phils, including two doubles and an RBI in the effort. The 26th round pick in the 2017 draft is hitting .474 thus far.
