Lehigh Valley 4, Rochester 3

Brandon Leibrandt - 4 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 2 GB, 5 FB
Alexis Rivero - 1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, K, HR
Ricardo Pinto - 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 K
Scott Kingery - 1 for 3, R, 2B, BB
J.P. Crawford - 1 for 4, K
Rhys Hoskins - 2 for 4, 2 HR, 3 RBI, K
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 3, K, HBP
Jorge Alfaro - 1 for 4, R, 2B, 2 K
Andrew Pullin - 0 for 4, K

Rhys Hoskins may be good, eh? Those were his 25th and 26th homers of the season. That leads the Phillies organization AND the International League. For further context, that is 2nd most in all of minor league baseball (just one off the leader). If he isn’t the starting 1st baseman on opening day for the Phillies...I might get a little upset. Brandon Leibrandt gets the no-decision and was pulled at 71 pitches. Ricardo Pinto picked up his 1st save since his first season in the VSL back in 2012.

Harrisburg 9, Reading 5

Tommy Bergjans - 4 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 4 ER, BB, 3 K, WP, 6 GB, 3 FB
Garrett Cleavinger - 2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 3 K, WP
Austin Davis - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 K
Zach Coppola - 1 for 5, RBI
Carlos Tocci - 2 for 5, 2 R, 2B, K (outfield assist, home)
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 5, K
Angelo Mora - 1 for 5, 2 RBI, K
Deivi Grullon - 1 for 4, R, 2 K (passed ball)
Malquin Canelo - 2 for 4, 2 R, HR, 2 K

Tommy Bergjans has had some issues since debuting a little less than two months ago. He now carries a 7.09 ERA in 39.1 innings. Garrett Cleavinger (Hellickson trade) made his org debut and was notably just as bad as before he arrived. Other than that, the offense had a pretty good day. Malquin Canelo hit his 2nd homerun in as many days; it was his 5th of the season. Carlos Tocci’s multi-hit effort boosted his seaosn-line to .310/.367/.404 in 381 at-bats.

Lakewood 8, Greensboro 5

Nick Fanti - 4.1 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, K, WP, HBP, 3 GB, 4 FB
Arquimedes Gamboa - 2 for 5, 2 R, 2 2B, RBI
Raul Rivas - 2 for 4, R, 2B, RBI, K, SB
Mickey Moniak - 2 for 3, R, 2 2B, 3 RBI, K
Darick Hall - 1 for 4, RBI, BB, K
Austin Listi - 0 for 5, 3 K
Colby Fitch - 0 for 2, R, BB, HBP (passed ball)
Gregori Rivero - 0 for 4
Luke Williams - 1 for 4, R, 2 K
Jesus Alastre - 3 for 4, 2 R, 2B, 2 RBI, K, SB

Nick Fanti might be broken? The 20 year old lefty has been quite good up until his last two starts (including this one). 1 strikeout in two combined starts isn’t going to get you a lot of wins. However, Fanti still sports a shiny 2.76 ERA and 95:21 K/BB in 97.2 innings this season. Mickey Moniak with his first multi-hit game in over a week. His two doubles give him 20 on the year.

Batavia 4, Williamsport 3

Kyle Young - 6 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 7 K, 6 GB, 1 FB
Nick Maton - 2 for 4, R, 2B, BB, K, SB
Jake Scheiner - 2 for 5, 3B, 2 K
Adam Haseley - 2 for 4, 2 RBI, 2 K
Greg Pickett - 0 for 4, K
Jhailyn Ortiz - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K, SB, CS
Cole Stobbe - 0 for 4, 2 K
Josh Stephen - 2 for 4, R, K
Nerluis Martinez - 1 for 4, K
Juan Luis - 0 for 4, RBI

Kyle Young settled in after giving up both of his runs in the 2nd inning and was able to go a season-high 6 innings. He has 47 strikeouts to just 11 walks in 39.1 innings. Adam Haseley now has 4 multi-hit games in a row and has brought his slash back up to .280/.366/.402 with 2 HR and 5 SB in 107 at-bats in Williamsport.

Lenin Rodriguez - 0 for 3
Keudy Bocio - 1 for 3, R

A combined no-hitter from our top IFA this year! It’s fun when good things happen. I’m no math expert and I’m too lazy to look it up, but I’d imagine that the Phillies are among the leaders in no-hitters thrown in the minors this season. Per Jim Peyton, Morales’ fastball was clocked in the low 90’s reaching 94 and 95 at times.
