Phillies Minor League Roundup for 8/22/18

Cliff Welch/MiLB.com

Syracuse 7, Lehigh Valley 3

Ranger Suarez - 6 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 K, 9 GB, 2 FB
J.P. Crawford - 0 for 4, BB, 2 K (throwing error)
Aaron Altherr - 1 for 5, 2 K
Mitch Walding - 0 for 3, BB, 3 K, SB
Joey Meneses - 1 for 3, R, 2B, BB
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K

I guess the losing in embarrassing fashion to a Nationals team was a theme yesterday. Jeff Singer came on in relief of Ranger Suarez and gave up 4 runs in the bottom of the 8th. Tom Windle relieved him and then promptly gave up two more runs before closing out the inning. Logan Moore hit a 2-run HR in the 2nd inning, his 3rd of the season. The offense otherwise went 0 for 8 with RISP. J.P. Crawford still trying to get back into the swing of things, is batting .100 in his first 20 at-bats with Lehigh Valley.

Trenton 8, Reading 7

Tyler Viza - 6.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 12 GB, 3 FB
Adam Haseley - 3 for 4, 3 R, HR, BB
Cornelius Randolph - 2 for 3, 2B, 2 RBI, 2 BB
Darick Hall - 0 for 3, R, 2 BB, 2 K
Deivi Grullon - 1 for 4, R, RBI, K
Jose Pujols - 2 for 5, HR, 3 RBI, K
Austin Listi - 1 for 4
Malquin Canelo - 0 for 4, 2 K

Another bullpen blunder leads to a loss. Kyle Dohy and Seth McGarry relieve Tyler Viza and both give up 3 runs each in the top of the 8th. Reading would put up 3 runs in the bottom of the 8th via Jose Pujols’ 4th HR with Reading, a 3-run shot, but fell short. Adam Haseley’s AA line is up to .323/.416/.496 with now 6 homeruns. His splits aren’t all that crazy either when you consider he is slashing .286/.394/.446 away from Reading.

Clearwater 5, Dunedin 4

David Parkinson - 5 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, WP, 4 GB, 3 FB
Daniel Brito - 1 for 4, K
Grenny Cumana - 0 for 4, K
Mickey Moniak - 2 for 4, R, K
Henri Lartigue - 0 for 3, R, BB, 2 K
Luke Williams - 0 for 3, 2 K
Kevin Markham - 0 for 2, R, RBI, BB (outfield assist, 1B)
Raul Rivas - 2 for 4, 2 R, 2B, HR, 2 RBI
Jose Gomez - 2 for 3, RBI, K

Clearwater held a 4-3 lead going into the top of the 9th, but Addison Russ gave up the game-tying run. However, Raul Rivas was able to right the ship and deliver just his 2nd HR of the season for the walk-off victory in the bottom of the 9th. David Parkinson was once again really good. His ERA with Clearwater is down to 1.17 through 23 innings. He had a 1.51 ERA in 95.1 innings with Lakewood earlier this year. While it was just his second multi-hit game in his last 10 games, Mickey Moniak is batting .268 over that span. More importantly though, he is slashing .298/.341/.471 over his last 262 plate appearances with 5 homers.

State College 6, Williamsport 1

Manuel Silva - 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 8 K, 3 GB, 2 FB
Jesus Henriquez - 0 for 4, RBI, 2 K
Rafael Marchan - 0 for 4, 2 K
Alec Bohm - 0 for 4 (fielding error)
Ben Pelletier - 0 for 3, K (outfield assist, 2B)
Jake Holmes - 0 for 4, 2 K
Edwin Rodriguez - 0 for 2, K
Brayan Gonzalez - 0 for 3, 2 K
Seth Lancaster - 1 for 2, R, 2B, BB
Keudy Bocio - 1 for 3, K (outfield assist, 2B)

Hey, Phillies MiLB relievers, stop blowing games and/or making comebacks unattainable. Manuel Silva left the game with the Crosscutters facing a 2-1 deficit. Oscar Marcelino allowed an additional 4 runs in the top of the 9th. Manuel Silva got saddled with his 5th loss of the season. The 19 year old lefty has a 3.04 ERA with 52 strikeouts to 25 walks in 53.1 innings. Alec Bohm committed his 6th error of the season. Ben Pelletier saw his 5-game hitting streak come to an end. After hitting well over .300 for most of the season, Rafael Marchan has struggled in his last 10 games, batting .220 and saw his season average dip to .295.
