REA: Jose Tavares
CLR: Seranthony Dominguez
LWD: Alejandro Requena
WIL: Andrew Brown

Clearwater 6, Fort Myers 3

Edgar Garcia - 5 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 2 HR, 9 GB, 2 FB
Cornelius Randolph - 2 for 4
Zach Green - 1 for 4, R
Jan Hernandez - 1 for 3, R, SB, HBP
Jose Pujols - 2 for 3, R, 2 R, RBI, BB, K, SB
Carlos Duran - 2 for 4, 2B, HR, 3 RBI

Though he likely still winds up a reliever, Edgar Garcia has been more than serviceable in his time as a starter this season. He has 3 straight starts now of at least 5 IP and giving up 1 earned run or less. The Threshers trailed the game 3-1 heading into the bottom of the 7th before Carlos Duran launched his 2nd HR of the season, a 2-run shot, to tie the game. In the bottom of the 8th Clearwater would blow the game wide open, scoring three runs all while having two outs. Jose Pujols even stole home in the inning. For those counting at home, that was Cornelius Randolph’s 4th multi-hit effort in his last 10 games.

Greensboro 3, Lakewood 2

Adonis Medina - 6 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 5 K, HBP, 5 GB, 5 FB
Daniel Brito - 1 for 4, BB, SB
Arquimedes Gamboa - 1 for 3, R, 2B, BB
Mickey Moniak - 1 for 4, RBI, 2 K
Darick Hall - 0 for 4, K
Austin Listi - 0 for 4, R, K
Henri Lartigue - 1 for 4, 2 K
David Martinelli - 0 for 3, BB, K
Luke Williams - 1 for 3, RBI, BB, K
Jesus Alastre - 2 for 4, 2B, K

Adonis Medina actually had a 2-hit, 5 inning shutout going entering the 6th inning before giving up 3 hits, allowing all 3 of his runs to score. He took his 7th loss, but still got the quality start and has a pretty ERA of 3.24 on the season. Daniel Brito stole his 10th base of the season. He would need 5 more homeruns this season for the illustrious baseball double-double. 2017 17th round pick Austin Listi made his Lakewood debut after spending his first 22 games in Williamsport (slashing .293/.372/.480 with 3 HR).

West Virginia 6, Williamsport 5

Luis Carrasco - 5 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, K, 2 WP, HBP, 11 GB, 4 FB
Nick Maton - 1 for 4, R, RBI, K, SB (throwing error)
Jake Scheiner - 1 for 5, RBI, SB (throwing error)
Adam Haseley - 2 for 4, 2 R, HR
Greg Pickett - 0 for 4, 3 K
Colby Fitch - 0 for 4, 2 K
Josh Stephen - 2 for 4, R, 2B, 2 K
Malvin Matos - 2 for 4, R, RBI, 2 K
Rodolfo Duran - 1 for 4, K (passed ball)
Jesus Azuaje - 1 for 2, K, SB, HBP
Jhailyn Ortiz - 1 for 1 (pinch hitter)

The obviously highlight of the game was 2017 1st Round Pick Adam Haseley’s 2nd HR of the season, which was a nice opposite field shot. Luis Carrasco gave up two of his three runs in his final inning of the game. 2017 14th Round Pick Zach Warren gave up 2 earned runs and took the loss.

GCL Blue Jays 5, GCL Phillies 4

Elneiry Garcia - 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 2 K, 1 GB, 1 FB
Sandro Rosario - 4 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 ER, BB, 3 K, WP, 5 GB, 1 FB
Simon Muzziotti - 0 for 4, R, K
Jonathan Guzman - 1 for 4 (fielding error)
Rafael Marchan - 1 for 4, R, SB (passed ball)
Quincy Nieporte - 2 for 4, 2 R, 2 2B, RBI, K
Ben Pelletier - 1 for 3, 2B, RBI, BB, K (outfield assist, 3B)
Brayan Gonzalez - 1 for 3, 2B, RBI, BB, SB
Yahir Gurrola - 0 for 3, BB, K
Edwin Rodriguez - 0 for 4
Keudy Bocio - 0 for 3, K

Our old friend Elneiry Garcia makes his first “rehab” start with the GCL Phils yesterday afternoon. Garcia has been spending a majority of the season (80 games) suspended due to testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. If he can get back to where he was in 2016, there is still a pretty positive outlook for the lefty starter.
