MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Lehigh Valley 5 - Gwinnett 3

Lively: 5 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 4 K, WP
Therrien: 2 IP, 4 H, R, ER, K
Ramos: IP, H, BB, K
Kingery: 1 for 5, RBI
Crawford: 0 for 4, R, BB, K
Hoskins: 0 for 5, K
Cozens: 1 for 4, BB, 2 K, SB, R
Pullin: 1 for 4, 2B, BB

Therrien came in with the game tied at 2, but gave up a run in his first inning, putting the Pigs into a little bit of a hole to start the top of the 9th. Much of the offense came from non-prospects for the Pigs, but the tying run in the 9th was courtesy of Kingery Single and the winning run in the 10th came after Cozens singled, Stole Second and eventually came across the plate after a Florimon Single. Logan Moore committed one of the great sins in Baseball - making the final out at Third Base. The 2-run lead held up in the bottom of the 10th though, so ultimately no harm done.

New Hampshire 5 - Reading 2

Viza: 7 IP, 9 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, HR, WP
Arano: IP, H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 2 K, HR
Coppolla: 1 for 3, R, BB, K, SB
Tocci: 1 for 4, RBI, picked off
Walding: 1 for 4, R, RBI, HR, 3 K
Tromp: 1 for 4, 2 K, SB
Numata: 0 for 3, passed ball
Canelo: 2 for 3, SB

Viza with a not strong start. I’m curious how long it is before they try him in the Bullpen. Mitch Walding mastering 2 of the 3 true outcomes. Tocci got picked off in the First after a nice RBI Single, pretty much killing the rally. The game was close until the 7th and 8th when both Viza and Arano gave up 2 run Homers and suddenly it was a 5-1 game.

Clearwater 6 - Dunedin 0

Ranger Suarez: 6 IP, 5 H, 10 K, BB
Leftwich: 2 IP, H, BB, K
Jeff Singer: IP, 3 BB, 2 K
Randolph: 1 for 4, 2 K
Grullon: 2 for 4, 2B, HR, R, 3 RBI
Jan Hernandez: 2 for 3, 2 R, HR, RBI
Cumana: 2 for 3, R, 2 RBI, HR

Big night for Homers by the Threshers, as that accounted for virtually all of their scoring. I might have to become a Ranger Suarez fan. Dude just gets results. Pretty dominant last night against a lineup with top prospects Bo Bichette, Vlad Guerrero, Jr. and Cavan Biggio (I think I detect a draft strategy there).

State College 3 - Williamsport 1

Carrasco: 6 IP, 3 H, R, ER, BB, 3 K
Matos: 0 for 3, BB, 2 K
Josh Stephen: 1 for 3, 3 K
Haseley: 0 for 4, 2 K
Scheiner: 0 for 2, R, BB
Encarnacion: 0 for 1, BB
Pickett: 0 for 0, BB
Azuaje: 1 for 3

A very bad night for the Crosscutters bats as they strung no real hits together. Their one Offensive outburst came in the 7th when they got a Walk, followed by a pair of Singles, an Intentional Walk, then 2 force outs to end the rally with only one run scoring despite bases loaded with one out.

GCL Yankees East 6 - GCL Phillies 5

Silva: 5 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 3 K
Muzziotti: 1 for 5, 3B, 2 RBI, K
Brayan Gonzalez: 0 for 5, K
Guzman: 0 for 4, K, E
Nieporte: 2 for 4, R, 2B, K, E
Pelletier: 1 for 4, R, 3 K
Gurrola: 2 for 4, R
Bocio: 2 for 3, 2B, RBI, BB, SB

That is Muzziotti’s 5th (!!!) Triple this season. More than 25% of his hits have been Triples. If that were sustainable it would be absurd. He has as many Triple as he does Strikeouts in the GCL. The stats here are almost endlessly weird. And by almost endlessly, I mean, that’s pretty much all of them, so I’m a bit hyperbolic today, I guess. It’s also the only really notable thing to discuss in this box score, outside of a pretty stellar day for Keudy Bocio’s stat line. Bocio wasn’t much of note last year in the DSL, but he seems to have pretty good eye as a hitter and it’s hard to argue with his results in a small sample so far in the GCL where his line is .391/.448/.522.
