Lehigh Valley, Pawtucket (ppd due to wet grounds, makeup on 5/28)

Reading 2, Richmond 1

Adonis Medina - 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, HR, 2 WP, HBP, 5 GB, 2 FB
Kyle Dohy - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 5 K
Mickey Moniak - 1 for 4, 2B, 2 K
Adam Haseley - 0 for 5, K
Austin Listi - 2 for 4, BB
Darick Hall - 2 for 4, 2B, HR, BB
Arquimedes Gamboa - 0 for 3, 2 K, HBP
Henri Lartigue - 0 for 3, R, BB, 3 K
Josh Stephen - 1 for 3, BB, K
Lucas Williams - 1 for 1, RBID

A rather uneven start for Adonis Medina. He gave up a season-low three hits, but walked a season-high four batters. His lone mistake pitch that hurt him was a solo HR to Jacob Heyward (the brother of MLBer Jason Heyward). In his relief, the bullpen combined for four shutout innings of one hit ball with eight strikeouts. Kyle Dohy got his second save of the season and has 22 strikeouts in 11 innings. Darick Hall hit his 2nd HR of the season and Luke Williams provided the eventual game-winning pinch hit RBI-single in the 8th to give Reading the 2-1 lead.

Florida 7, Clearwater 1

Julian Garcia - 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 6 K, HR, 3 GB, 3 FB
Nick Maton - 0 for 2, 2 BB, K
Simon Muzziotti - 0 for 4, K
Matt Vierling - 1 for 4, K, CS
Madison Stokes - 1 for 4, R, 3B, 2 K
Jake Scheiner - 0 for 2, RBI, BB, 2 K
Rodolfo Duran - 1 for 4
Danny Mayer - 1 for 4
Daniel Brito - 0 for 3, 2 K
Ben Aklinski - 0 for 1, BB, K, HBP, SB, CS

Tough luck for Julian Garcia who fell to 1-2 on the season despite a respectable 3.07 ERA in 14.2 innings (and also boasts 19 strikeouts to 5 walks). In relief Gustavo Armas gave up two runs in the 6th, while a rehabbing Seth McGarry allowed three in the 8th. The Threshers didn’t have many baserunners and were 0 for 3 with RISP.

Lakewood 10, Rome 5

Dominic Pipkin - 3 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 2 K, WP, 5 GB, 1 FB (pickoff error)
Yerwin Trejo - 0 for 5, R, 3 K
Rafael Marchan - 3 for 5, 2 R, 2 2B, RBI (passed ball)
Alec Bohm - 3 for 5, 2B, HR, 3 RBI
Ben Pelletier - 0 for 4, BB, 2 K
Malvin Matos - 1 for 4, 2 R, HR, BB, K
Matt Kroon - 3 for 5, 2 R, 3B, 2 K
Luis Garcia - 2 for 4, R, RBI (fielding error)
Carlos De La Cruz - 1 for 5, RBI, 2 K
Jonathan Guzman - 1 for 4, R, 2B, RBI, K

Dominic Pipkin wasn’t very good, but he didn’t have to be! Alec Bohm broke the 2-2 in the 7th inning with a 2-run HR (his second of the season). He is now slashing .367/.444/.567 in 60 at-bats after the three-hit game. Please give us more of that Alec. The BlueClaws broke things open even more in the 8th inning with a five run explosion. It included Malvin Matos’ first dinger of the year. Luis Garcia followed up his dreadful five-strikeout game with a two-hit night to get above the Mendoza Line for the season.
