Weekend Probables:

LHV: TBD, TBD, TBD
REA: Jose Tavares, Ranger Suarez, Harold Arauz
CLR: Mauricio Llovera, Nick Fanti, GM1 Bailey Falter, GM2 TBD
LWD: Spencer Howard, Damon Jones, David Parkinson

Charlotte 6, Lehigh Valley 2

Drew Anderson - 5.1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 4 K, HR, 2 HBP, 5 GB, 6 FB
Dean Anna - 3 for 4, CS
Danny Ortiz - 2 for 4, HR, K
Trevor Plouffe - 1 for 3, HR, BB, K

Drew Anderson’s line only looks worse because 2 inherited runners in the 6th inning scored via a Brandon Leibrandt implosion (who also let up 2 runs himself). This offense literally has no prospects on it and will be very boring to report on. Ortiz and Plouffe hit solo HRs, their 8th and 4th of the season.

Reading 5, Trenton 3

Franklyn Kilome - 6 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 6 K, 2 GB, 5 FB
Malquin Canelo - 1 for 3, 2 R, 2 BB
Kyle Martin - 0 for 4, K
Damek Tomscha - 3 for 4, 2B, HR, 3 RBI, BB (throwing error)
Zach Green - 0 for 4, BB, K
Deivi Grullon - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K
Cord Sandberg - 1 for 4, R, K
Jan Hernandez - 0 for 3, R, BB, K (outfield assist, 3B)
Jiandido Tromp - 0 for 3, BB, K
Emmanuel Marrero - 0 for 3, K

Make that two excellent starts for Kilome in a row in which he has put together: 12.2 IP, 9 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 10 K. We need more of “Good Kilome” going forward. Damek Tomscha provided almost all the offense early-on, hitting a 2-run HR in the 1st inning, his 9th of the season. He added a RBI-double in the 3rd. The game was tied entering the top of the 9th before a calamity of errors allowed Reading to produce 2 runs and take the lead. Trenton had one wild pitch, two passed balls, one error and two intentional walks in the inning.

Clearwater 5, Fort Myers 1

Adonis Medina - 7 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, BB, 6 K, 13 GB, 2 FB
J.P. Crawford - 0 for 3, R, BB
Adam Haseley - 1 for 3, R, 2 BB
Austin Listi - 2 for 5, R, 2 RBI
Darick Hall - 0 for 3, BB
Mickey Moniak - 2 for 4, R, RBI
Arquimedes Gamboa - 1 for 3, RBI, HBP
Edgar Cabral - 0 for 3, RBI (passed ball)
Raul Rivas - 1 for 3, BB
Luke Williams - 1 for 2, R, BB, SB, HBP

Adonis Medina showing last night why he’s still considered a premier pitching prospect. While 3 of his 9 starts have been absolute dumpster fires, he has otherwise been excellent in his other 6 starts. Mickey Moniak now has four straight multi-hit games amidst his 7-game hitting streak. His season line is now up to .249/.266/.304, which is scary to think about how worse it would be without this little hot streak.

Greensboro 2, Lakewood 0 (7 innings, completed early due to fog)

Kyle Young - 7 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, HR, 8 GB, 1 FB
Jake Scheiner - 0 for 3
Nick Maton - 1 for 3
Jhailyn Ortiz - 0 for 2, K
Gregori Rivero - 0 for 2, 2 K
Daniel Brito - 1 for 2
Jesus Alastre - 0 for 2
Rodolfo Duran - 0 for 2
Josh Stephen - 0 for 2
Dalton Guthrie - 1 for 2, K

The towering lefty Kyle Young didn’t get any support in his otherwise solid outing. In 3 starts this season Young has a 2.00 ERA and 18:4 K/BB in 18 innings. This is his first taste of full-season ball as a 20 year old. The offense behind him strung together only 3 hits and no baserunners were ever in scoring position.
