Today’s Probables:

LHV: Jake Thompson
REA: Ranfi Casimiro
CLR: Edgar Garcia
LWD: Adonis Medina
WIL: Kyle Young

Syracuse 10, Lehigh Valley 6

Mark Appel - 0.2 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 5 BB, WP
Scott Kingery - 0 for 4, R, BB, K
J.P. Crawford - 0 for 2, R, 2 BB
Rhys Hoskins - 0 for 3, R, BB
Dylan Cozens - 1 for 3, R, RBI, BB, 2 K (throwing error)

Perhaps I can just let you view this quick snippet of the play log to get a sense of what the hell happened to Appel in that first inning because that was certainly...something. If that wasn’t enough, Mark Peterson (lol who?) and Colton Murray gave up the other 6 runs in relief. In total, IronPig pitchers combined to give up 11 hits and issue 12 walks in the game. On the other end, LHV hitters actually walked (6) more than they hit (4). This was only the second time since being promoted (in 10 games) in which Scott Kingery failed to record a hit. In his last 17 games, J.P. Crawford is slashing .292/.387/.569 with 3 HR in 65 at-bats.

Trenton 8, Reading 2

Tyler Viza - 5 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 7 ER, BB, 2 K, WP, HBP, 8 GB, 4 FB
Zach Coppola - 1 for 4, BB, K, CS
Angelo Mora - 0 for 5, 2 K
Carlos Tocci - 1 for 3, BB, K
Kyle Martin - 0 for 3, BB, K
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 4, HR
Mitch Walding - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K
Malquin Canelo - 1 for 3, R, 2B, BB, 2 K

Hey look, another game where the starter was bad and the offense had more walks than hits. Tyler Viza’s ERA (5.92) is likely approaching “demoted to the bullpen” levels. For reasons he’s had a longer leash than John Richy and Shane Watson. Jiandido Tromp provided the likely only fun of the game, hitting his 11th HR of the season. Carlos Tocci extended his hitting streak to 7 games.

Clearwater 4, Daytona 2

Jacob Waguespack - 5 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 5 K, 3 GB, 6 FB (pickoff error)
Tyler Gilbert - 2.2 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 4 K
Jeff Singer - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 2 K
Mark Laird - 2 for 4, 2 R, RBI, BB
Emmanuel Marrero - 0 for 3, 2 K, HBP
Zach Green - 1 for 3, HR, BB, K
Wilson Garcia - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K
Cornelius Randolph - 1 for 3, RBI, BB, K
Jose Pujols - 0 for 4, 3 K
Austin Bossart - 0 for 4, 2 K
Carlos Duran - 0 for 4, K
Grenny Cumana - 2 for 4, R, 2B, SB

Jacob Waguespack’s wild ride from the bullpen to the rotation is still going on strong. He earned his 5th win last night and lowered his ERA to 2.53. Jeff Singer picked up his 16th save for Clearwater in relief. Zach Green making himself feel like home, launches his 1st with Clearwater (his 4th this season if you include his 3 with GCL Phils). I’d imagine he’s likely destined for Reading in the near future. Jose Pujols racked up a hattrick of strikeouts last night giving him an astounding 100 in just 208 at-bats this season. In the arbitrary endpoints game, Cornelius Randolph is slashing .298/.393/.435 with 3 HR and 6 SB in his last 37 games (124 at-bats). Couple that with Crawford’s resurgence, you have to be feeling pretty good about the pharm lately.

Delmarva 2, Lakewood 0

Sixto Sanchez - 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 4 K, 2 WP
Casey Brown - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 2 K
Jake Kelzer - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, K
Arquimedes Gamboa - 2 for 4, 2B
Raul Rivas - 2 for 3, K, SB
Brett Barbier - 0 for 4, K
Darick Hall - 0 for 4, K
Edgar Cabral - 1 for 4, 2B
David Martinelli - 2 for 4, 3B, K
Luke Williams - 0 for 3, K
Juan Luis - 0 for 3
Jesus Alastre - 0 for 3, K

Sixto Sanchez is the hard luck loser, but did throw 50 of his 76 pitches for strikes. The organization obviously still has a bit of a leash on Sixto and his pitch count. For those wondering about his velocity last night, check out this helpful tweet. The offense behind him went 1 for 12 with RISP and left 7 on base. Mickey Moniak didn’t start, but did pinch hit later in the game (and grounded into a doubleplay to end the game).

Williamsport 6, State College 3

Luis Carrasco - 5 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, HBP, 5 GB, 3 FB
Randy Alcantara - 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 4 K
Luis Ramirez - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, K
Jake Scheiner - 0 for 4, R, BB, K
Malvin Matos - 0 for 1, R, BB, HBP
Josh Stephen - 1 for 2
Adam Haseley - 3 for 5, R, RBI, CS
Greg Pickett - 1 for 4, 2B, 2 RBI, 3 K (fielding error)
Jhailyn Ortiz - 0 for 3, 2 BB, K
Cole Stobbe - 1 for 4, 2 R, 2B, K
Colby Fitch - 2 for 4, R, 2B, RBI
Rodolfo Duran - 3 for 4, 2 RBI (two passed balls)
Jesus Azuaje - 0 for 4, K, SB (throwing error)

Luis Carrasco gets win number 1 in his 3rd start of the season. He has given up 3 earned runs on 10 hits and 8 walks in 14 innings this season so far. 1st round pick Adam Haseley continues to make easy work in his first professional season. Across two levels he is batting .500/.571/.639 with 4 stole bases in 36 at-bats. Obviously the same size is still very small, but it could also be a sign that he could be ready for a new challenge sooner than later.

GCL Phillies 7, GCL Pirates 2

Manuel Silva - 5 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 5 K, 3 GB, 5 FB
Denny Martinez - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, K
Justin Miller - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R
Anton Kuznetsov - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 K
Brayan Gonzalez - 1 for 3, R, 2B, 2 RBI, BB
Jonathan Guzman - 1 for 4, R, RBI, BB, 2 SB
Jesus Henriquez - 0 for 2
Quincy Nieporte - 2 for 5, 2B, HR, 2 RBI
Kevin Markham - 1 for 2, HR, 2 BB
Yahir Gurrola - 1 for 4, R, K, SB
Danny Mayer - 0 for 4
Jake Holmes - 1 for 3, R, BB, SB
Kipp Moore - 0 for 2, R, K, HBP

It’s good to see at least one Phillies team beat the Pirates yesterday. Manuel Silva improved to 2-0 and the GCL Phils offense came back and scored 6 unanswered runs in the 6th and 7th after being down 2-1. 2017 draft picks Quincy Nieporte (26th) and Kevin Markham (24th) both hit their first professional homers yesterday afternoon. It was the former’s first game of the season.
