Today’s Probables:

LHV: Drew Anderson
REA: Harold Arauz (1:15pm start on MiLB.tv)
CLR: Connor Seabold (12:00pm start)
LWD: Ramon Rosso (10:35am start)

Scranton/WB 5, Lehigh Valley 2

Enyel De Los Santos - 5 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 7 K, 6 GB, 2 FB
Roman Quinn - 2 for 3, R, RBI, 2 BB, K (picked off)
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 3, RBI, 2 K
Mitch Walding - 0 for 3, BB
Andrew Pullin - 0 for 4, 2 K

De Los Santos makes his organizational debut. He’s a 22 year old RHP that came over in the Freddy Galvis trade. His ceiling is likely only a #3 starter, but more realistically a back-end type. He was excellent last night and can only hope to see more starts in which he can throw strikes (60 strikes on 80 pitches) and keep the ball on the ground. The bullpen blew it in the 7th when Tyler Viza and Tom Windle (who is still very much bad) gave up 3 runs to relinquish the lead. Quinn is off to a decent start in his first three games, going 4 for 12 with 2 walks and 2 stolen bases.

Portland 7, Reading 5 (13 innings)

Ranger Suarez - 6 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 6 K, 2 WP, 6 GB, 4 FB
Zach Coppola - 1 for 5, R, BB, SB, CS
Kyle Martin - 1 for 3, R, 3 BB, K
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 5, 2 R, BB (fielding error and outfield assist, 2B)
Cornelius Randolph - 0 for 5, BB, 2 K
Zach Green - 1 for 6, 2 RBI, 2 K

It was nice to see Ranger Suarez bounce back from a bad opening outing (3 IP, 9 H, 7 ER). It was also encouraging to see another starter not give up a walk over the course of their start. The bullpen was a disaster once again, with Tyler Gilbert giving up the tying run in the 8th inning to force extra innings. This gave way to fans experiencing the new rule with a runner being placed on 2nd to start each inning, which was done to improve “pace of play”. Well, each team wound up scoring a run in the 10th and went a few more rounds, so screw you Manfred. Garrett Cleavinger took the loss, giving up 3 runs in the top of the 8th inning. He was acquired in the Jeremy Hellickson trade last season and has been quite bad for 2+ years.

Jupiter 5, Clearwater 4 (10 innings)

Mauricio Llovera - 5 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 4 K, 6 GB, 3 FB
Kevin Markham - 1 for 5, 2 R
Arquimedes Gamboa - 1 for 5, R, 2B, RBI
Adam Haseley - 1 for 4, BB, K, SB
Darick Hall - 0 for 4, BB
Henri Lartigue - 1 for 3, BB, K (passed ball)
Jose Pujols - 1 for 4, 2 K
Luke Williams - 1 for 2, 2 BB
Raul Rivas - 1 for 4, HR

Another wasted excellent start en route to a loss for a Phillies affiliate! Never get tired of these. Llovera’s first start of the season was a good as he’s once again a starter after spending time in the bullpen last season. He threw 53 of his 84 pitches for strikes. Raul Rivas, the 21 year old middle-infielder, hit his first HR since 2015 when he was in the now defunct Venezuela Summer League (in which his HR total was...1). Alexis Rivero blew the save in the top of the 9th, allowing Jupiter to tie the game. The Hammerheads then put up 2 runs in the top of the 10th to go ahead. The Threshers mounted a 1-run rally in the bottom of the inning, but fell short.

West Virginia 8, Lakewood 5 (GM1 of DH, 7 innings)
Lakewood 15, West Virginia 2 (GM2 of DH, 7 innings, makeup of 4/9 ppd)

Connor Brogdon - 1.1 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 2 HR, 0 GB, 2 FB
David Parkinson - 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 9 K, 4 GB, 3 FB
Simon Muzziotti - 4 for 9, 2 R, 2B, 3 RBI, 2 K, SB
Daniel Brito - 2 for 7, R, 2 RBI, 2 BB, K
Jake Scheiner - 0 for 3, R, BB, K
Jhailyn Ortiz - 1 for 6, 2 R, 3 BB, K
Cole Stobbe - 3 for 9, 3 R, 2B, HR, 5 RBI, 3 K
Rodolfo Duran - 0 for 3
Dalton Guthrie - 0 for 2, 2 R, BB, K
Josh Stephen - 0 for 2, BB
Quincy Nieporte - 1 for 8, 2 R, 2B, 3 K, HBP (fielding error)
Colby Fitch - 2 for 5, 2 R, HR, 5 RBI
Nick Maton - 2 for 4, HR, 2 RBI
Gregori Rivero - 0 for 3, R, BB, 2 K (passed ball)

Lakewood splits the DH in about as opposite of way you could. Nice to see David Parkinson get off to a nice start to the season. He is a 22 year old lefty and was the Phillies 12th round pick in 2017. I personally miss having a serviceable lefty in the Phillies rotation. Jhailyn Ortiz finally gets a hit! It hasn’t been easy going for the promising power bat, but with the hit and slew of walks MAYBE things are ready to turn around. Stobbe and Fitch hit their 1st HR’s of the young season, while Nick Maton adds his 2nd.
