Today’s Probables:

LHV: Tom Eshelman
REA: Franklyn Kilome
CLR: Mauricio Llovera
LWD: Spencer Howard

Lehigh Valley 3, Pawtucket 0

Enyel De Los Santos - 7 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K, 9 GB, 3 FB
Mitch Walding - 1 for 4, K
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K
Andrew Pullin - 1 for 3, 2B, RBI, BB, 2 K

Enyel De Los Santos is 4-0 with a 0.84 ERA in AAA as a 22 year old. His only hit allowed came on a 2-out single in the 1st inning. He probably isn’t that far off from being ready for a trail-run at the MLB-level, but given his age and the glut of pitchers above him on the depth chart (and 40 man roster), it wouldn’t be the worst thing for him to get some more AAA time. De Los Santos received offensive support from the most obvious source...Nick Rickles. Rickles hit 2 solo homers in the game.

Trenton 3, Reading 1

JoJo Romero - 6 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 7 K, 5 GB, 2 FB
Cord Sandberg - 1 for 4
Malquin Canelo - 0 for 4, 3 K
Damek Tomscha - 1 for 4, K
Zach Green - 1 for 4, HR, 2 K
Jiandido Tromp - 1 for 4, K
Kyle Martin - 0 for 4, 2 K
Jan Hernandez - 2 for 2, 2B, BB, CS

Romero’s line is a bit deceiving as 3 hits, 2 walks and all three of his runs came in a single inning. Otherwise, Romero pitched his best game of the season in which he has struggled early and often. Positive steps is all we ask for the promising lefty. The Fightin’s offense was not timely even with out-hitting Trenton 7-4. They were 0 for 7 with RISP and left 5 runners on. Zach Green hit his team-leading 6th HR of the season. He is just 2 dingers off the league-lead.

Lakeland 6, Clearwater 5

McKenzie Mills - 1 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 4 BB, K, HR, 1 GB, 1 FB
Mark Leiter - 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 5 K
Arquimedes Gamboa - 3 for 5, R, RBI, K
Adam Haseley - 0 for 4, R, BB
Austin Listi - 3 for 5, 2B
Darick Hall - 1 for 3, 2B, RBI, 2 BB
Mickey Moniak - 0 for 3, R, BB, K, HBP
Edgar Cabral - 1 for 5, R, 2B, 2 RBI, K
Jose Pujols - 2 for 4, R, RBI, 2 K, HBP (outfield assist, home)
Jose Gomez - 0 for 4, BB, K
Jose Antequera - 0 for 4, 2 K

McKenzkie Mills threw up a big turd last night, allowing a one-run 1st and a five-run 2nd inning before being pulled from the game. His relief (Felix Paulino) did allow one inherited runner to score. Otherwise the bullpen combined for 7 shutout innings to allow the offense to close in on tying the game. The Threshers exploded for 3 runs in the top of the 9th to make it a one-run game. Austin Listi’s impressive line is up to .381/.449/.571 in 105 at-bats. It’s at the point where I’m probably releasing Kyle Martin and promoting Listi the first chance I get. In more depressing stats, Haseley’s walk last night was his first since 4/21.

Lakewood 2, Charleston 0

Will Stewart - 8 IP, 6 H, 0 R, BB, 6 K, 11 GB, 2 FB
Jake Scheiner - 1 for 4, 2B
Daniel Brito - 1 for 4 (throwing error)
Dalton Guthrie - 1 for 4, K
Quincy Nieporte - 2 for 4, HR, K
Nick Maton - 0 for 3, BB
Rodolfo Duran - 0 for 3
Colby Fitch - 1 for 3, R, 3B
Danny Mayer - 0 for 3, K
Kevin Markham - 0 for 1, RBI, CS, HBP (outfield assist, 2B)

Another Will Stewart outing, another dominant start. The 20 year old lefty has been excellent these first two months, compiling a 1.46 ERA and 31:5 K/BB in 37 innings. He and Ramon Rosso have been very exciting to follow. In fact, the entire six-man rotation has been lights out, with the highest ERA coming from Spencer Howard (3.68), who might be the most promising prospect of them all. The offense mustered up runs via a Markham sac fly in the 2nd and a Nieporte homer in the 5th (his 2nd of the season).
