LHV 8 - Pawtucket 1

Ben Lively: 7 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 5 K
Mitch Walding: 1 for 5, R, RBI, K
Joey Meneses: 2 for 5, 2 R, K
Dean Anna: 2 for 3, 2 R, 2 RBI, BB

More like Paw, fuck it. This game was never really much of a game. After 2 inning the Pigs were up 7-0 and that was plenty for Lively who looked downright competent.

Harrisburg 12 - Reading 2

Harold Arauz: 4.1 IP, 9 H, 9 R, 7 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, HR
Jeff Singer: 2 IP, H, 2 BB, 2 K
Malquin Canelo: 0 for 5, 2 K
Cornelius Randolph: 1 for 4, BB
Kyle Martin: 2 for 4, R

More like Rea, fuck it. This game also was not much of a game from the get go with Harold Arauz responsible for nearly every run in the game by both teams (he went 1 for 2 at the plate with an RBI). The Fightins combine for 4 hits and 6 walks, which is not a terrible total if you have good pitching and get enough of those strung together, but when all of your baserunners falls short of the total hits for the other team, it’s hard to win. The Fightins’ were don in, in part, by former pharmhand Zach Collier

Clearwater 7 - Tampa 4

Nick Fanti: 6 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, BB, 3 K
Arquimedes Gamboa: 0 for 3, BB, K, R
Adam Haseley: 1 for 4, R, BB
Mickey Moniak: 3 for 4, 2B, 2 R, 3 RBI, K
Henri Lartigue: 3 for 4, R, RBI, K

Not the sharpest possible start for Fanti, but plenty on a strong night for small ball offense. Apparently Moniak has recovered from what was clearly a sprained hit tool. Hopefully he’s adjusting to the level and the Walks will come. Nice return either way. Also Haseley got on base, of course extending his streak.

Hagerstown 7 - Lakewood 6

Kyle Young: 5 IP, 8 H, 5 ER, 5 K
Nick Maton: 1 for 4, 2B, K
Jhailyn Ortiz: 1 for 3, R, 2 BB
Jake Scheiner: 1 for 4, R, 2 RBI, BB, K
Daniel Brito: 3 for 5, R, RBI, K
Rodolfo Duran: 1 for 5, R, 2B, K

My pet prospect in the system had a bit of a hard luck outing and he gave up 4 runs in the 5th Inning as a result of a well timed string of 2 seeing eye singles and 3 hard hit doubles. The Offense rolled along and tied the game in the bottom of the 5th with 5 runs, but the Bullpen couldn’t quite hold down the top half of the innings.
