Today’s Probables:

LHV: Zach Eflin
CLR: Adonis Medina
LWD: Will Stewart

Lehigh Valley 2, Scranton/WB 0

Jake Thompson - 3.1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, BB, 3 K
Brandon Leibrandt - 2.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 K
Roman Quinn - 0 for 3, BB, SB
Dylan Cozens - 1 for 4, R, 2 K
Mitch Walding - 2 for 4, RBI, K
Jesmuel Valentin - 0 for 4, 3 K
Andrew Pullin - 0 for 4, 3 K

Starter Drew Anderson gets placed on the DL right before the game because of a right forearm strain (ruh-oh). Thompson gets assigned to AAA and starts the game. Who knows at this point how long Thompson will be down with LHV. Leibrandt gets the win in the game. This is his first season in the bullpen after being a starter since being drafted. The stuff isn’t incredible, but he is a lefty and could make a solid BP role at the major league level. The offense scraped by and Roman Quinn swiped his 3rd bag of the season.

Reading 12, Portland 4

Harold Arauz - 6 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 8 K, 3 HR, 5 GB, 3 FB
Seranthony Dominguez - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 K
Zach Coppola - 1 for 3, 2 R, BB, HBP, SB
Damek Tomscha - 3 for 5, 2 R, 2B, HR, 3 RBI, K, SB
Kyle Martin - 3 for 4, 2 R, 2B, HR, 3 RBI
Cornelius Randolph - 2 for 4, R, RBI, BB, K
Jan Hernandez - 1 for 3, 2B, RBI, BB
Cord Sandberg - 1 for 5, R, 2 K
Deivi Grullon - 2 for 5, 2 HR, 4 RBI, K (throwing error)

Reading being Reading, am I right? 7 homeruns in total were hit yesterday afternoon between both clubs. Tomscha hit #2 on the season, while Martin added his 1st and Grullon hit both #1 and #2. Can’t wait for Reading affect to take a hold of Randolph. Casual fans will lose their minds.

Jupiter 6, Clearwater 4

Connor Seabold - 5.1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 9 K, 2 GB, 3 FB
Luke Williams - 0 for 3, R, 2 BB, K
Arquimedes Gamboa - 0 for 4, 2 K
Mickey Moniak - 1 for 4, 2 K
Darick Hall - 1 for 3, R, 2 RBI, BB
Edgar Cabral - 0 for 4 (throwing error)
Jose Pujols - 1 for 4, 2 K
Jose Gomez - 1 for 4, R, 2B
Kevin Markham - 2 for 4, R

Things were going just fine for Seabold until the top of the 6th inning. He was able to get one out before putting runners on 1st and 2nd. Not a terribly difficult situation for a reliever to come in and get a couple outs, right? Enter Aaron Brown, who allows both inherited runners to score. Brown then later gives up 3 runs of his own via a 3-run HR IN THE SAME INNING. Regardless, it was a good start for Seabold. The Threshers made it close with a 4-run 8th inning to bring it to within one. Felix Paulino would give up the insurance run in the top of the 9th and the Threshers couldn’t make the comeback happen.

Lakewood 4, West Virginia 3 (10 innings)

Ramon Rosso - 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 12 K, 2 GB, 1 FB
Simon Muzziotti - 2 for 5, R, SB
Dalton Guthrie - 0 for 4
Jake Scheiner - 1 for 4, RBI, BB, CS (fielding error)
Colby Fitch - 1 for 5, R, 3 K
Jhailyn Ortiz - 2 for 3, R, K, HBP
Cole Stobbe - 2 for 4, R, 2B, 2 RBI
Nick Maton - 1 for 4, RBI, 3 K
Rodolfo Duran - 0 for 4
Josh Stephen - 0 for 3, BB, K

I’m sure many of you are like, “Who is this Ramon Rosso and why haven’t I heard of him?” WELL, he really is mostly a mystery. He was sneakily good at each level he played last season (1.86 ERA and 121/29 K/BB in 85.1 IP across DSL, GCL, NYPL). Rosso is a 21 year old righty from the Dominican, coming in at 6’4 215 lbs according to his MilB profile. Keep your eyes peeled folks as we could have a new sleeper prospect. Jhailyn Ortiz (as correctly predicted yesterday!) has looked much better recently, as opposed to his 0-14 start with no walks. He’s 3 for 9 with 3 walks and 2 K’s in his last 3 games.
