Syracuse 5, Lehigh Valley 0

Jake Thompson - 7 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 2 HR, 6 GB, 7 FB
Edubray Ramos - 1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, K
Scott Kingery - 1 for 5, 2 K, SB
J.P. Crawford - 1 for 4, K
Jorge Alfaro - 1 for 4, 2 K
Dylan Cozens - 1 for 3, BB, K
Rhys Hoskins - 1 for 3, BB
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 4
Herlis Rodriguez - 1 for 3, BB, K

Surprisingly, Jake Thompson wasn’t that bad last night. His mistakes were a pair of homeruns in the 4th and 7th innings. The IronPigs offense did not collect a single extra-base hit and went 0 for 5 with RISP, leaving 10 stranded. Kingery’s stolen base last night was his 3rd with LHV and 22nd overall this season.

Trenton 6, Reading 3

Vince Velasquez - 3 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 2 ER, BB, 4 K, HR, 4 GB, 1 FB
Ranfi Casimiro - 4 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K (throwing error)
Victor Arano - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 3 K
Zach Coppola - 0 for 3, RBI, 2 BB
Carlos Tocci - 1 for 4, RBI
Jiandido Tromp - 3 for 4, 3B, K
Kyle Martin - 1 for 4, RBI, 3 K, CS
Mitch Walding - 0 for 4, 3 K
Cord Sandberg - 0 for 3, R, BB, 2 K
Malquin Canelo - 1 for 4, R, 2 K (throwing error)

Vinny Velasquez made a rehab start last night, throwing 33 of his 52 pitches for strikes. His 2-run HR he gave up in the 1st accounted for most of the damage. I’d imagine they are building up his strength and it will be a little bit before we see him back with the big club. While Carlos Tocci extended his hit-streak to 8 games, Jiandido Tromp had the big night offensively. On the season Tromp is slashing .290/.338/.520 with 11 HR and 2 SB across two levels (252 at-bats).

Daytona 9, Clearwater 8

Edgar Garcia - 5 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 4 ER, BB, 5 K, HR, 5 GB, 2 FB
Mark Laird - 1 for 5, R, 2B (outfield assist, 2B)
Jan Hernandez - 1 for 5, RBI, 2 K
Cornelius Randolph - 1 for 3, HR, 2 BB, K
Wilson Garcia - 3 for 5, 3 R, 2 2B
Deivi Grullon - 3 for 4, 2 R, 2 2B, HR, 2 RBI, BB, K
Carlos Duran - 1 for 4, HR, 4 RBI, K, SB, HBP
Grenny Cumana - 1 for 4, BB, 2 K (fielding error)
Jose Pujols - 0 for 4, 2 K
Jose Antequera - 1 for 4

Both teams combined for 6 homeruns last night, including Cornelius Randolph’s 8th longball of the season. With this recent prolonged stretch of awesomeness, it’s time to start paying closer attention to the 2015 1st round pick of the Phillies. Deivi Grullon (7) and Carlos Duran (1) added their own fireworks as well. Edgar Garcia fell to 2-3 and saw his ERA balloon up over 4.00 for the first time since early June.

Lakewood 4, Delmarva 1

Adonis Medina - 6 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 9 K, WP, HBP, 4 GB, 3 FB
Daniel Brito - 2 for 4, 2B, BB, K
Arquimedes Gamboa - 1 for 4, 2 R, BB
Mickey Moniak - 1 for 5, R, K
Darick Hall - 1 for 4, RBI, K
Edgar Cabral - 2 for 4, RBI
Henri Lartigue - 2 for 4, 2B, RBI, K
David Martinelli - 0 for 4, K (outfield assist, 2B)
Raul Rivas - 0 for 3, BB, K
Juan Luis - 1 for 4, HR, K

Adonis Medina sees a return to his, at times, dominant self. Despite a 3.58 ERA, that was only Medina’s 3rd win of the season. He’s up to a healthy 90:29 K/BB ratio in 75.1 innings this season. Perhaps the walks are a bit much, but the 20 year old kid has some stuff. Awakening from a rough month and a half, Daniel Brito is batting .366 in his last 10 games. Henri Lartigue is quietly among the SAL leaders in doubles this season, hitting 21 of them (3 off the league-lead).

State College 9, Williamsport 0

Andrew Brown - 5 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 5 K, WP, 9 GB, 1 FB
Jake Scheiner - 1 for 5, 2 K
Malvin Matos - 0 for 4
Adam Haseley - 0 for 2, 2 BB, K
Colby Fitch - 1 for 2, 2 HBP
Jhailyn Ortiz - 2 for 4
Cole Stobbe - 1 for 4 (fielding error)
Luis Encarnacion - 0 for 4, 2 K
Austin Listi - 0 for 3, BB, K
Nick Maton - 2 for 4, 2B

After spending last season (and the beginning of the current one) in a relief role, Andrew Brown’s first two starts have gone relatively well. The 19 year old righty has gone 10 innings, giving up 8 hits and 2 earned runs with 10 strikeouts to 3 walks. Yesterday was only the 2nd time in his 10 starts this season that Adam Haseley failed to record a hit. However in both of those games he reached base via a walk.

GCL Phillies 3, GCL Pirates 2

Francisco Morales - 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 4 K, WP, 6 GB, 2 FB
Simon Muzziotti - 1 for 4
Jesus Henriquez - 0 for 4, K
Quincy Nieporte - 2 for 3, R, K, HBP
Nerluis Martinez - 1 for 3, R, RBI
Ben Pelletier - 1 for 4, K
Yahir Gurrola - 1 for 3, RBI, SB
Jake Holmes - 0 for 3, K
Keudy Bocio - 1 for 3

Francisco Morales has done well for himself in his first two stateside starts going: 10 IP, 6 H, 5 ER, BB, 8 K. For a quick refresher, Morales was the Phillies big IFA signing in 2016 and one of the highest ranked pitchers on Baseball America’s annual IFA list.
