reading

Weekend Probables:

LHV: Enyel De Los Santos, Drew Anderson, Tyler Viza
REA: Tom Eshelman, Ramon Rosso, Adonis Medina
CLR: TBD, TBD, TBD
LWD: Victor Santos, TBD, GM1 TBD, GM2 TBD

Lehigh Valley 7, Durham 5

Nick Pivetta - 7 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 11 K, WP, 6 GB, 3 FB
Malquin Canelo - 1 for 4, RBI, 3 K, CS
Deivy Grullon - 2 for 4, R, 2B, RBI, 2 K
Mitch Walding - 1 for 2, R, 2 BB
Damek Tomscha - 1 for 4, R, 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K

If you don’t include all the free passes, Nick Pivetta has been outstanding since being demoted to AAA. He has a 3.09 ERA in 32 IP with 45 strikeouts to 16 walks. There is still hope that Pivetta can work this out and return to the Phillies to contribute in a meaningful way before the season is over. Is in the rotation or bullpen? Who knows. The Iron Pigs combined for 11 hits and were 4 for 11 with RISP. They also struck out 15 times; baseball is fun.

Reading 7, Portland 2

Mauricio Llovera - 5 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 2 GB, 3 FB
Scott Kingery - 0 for 4, R, RBI, 2 K
Mickey Moniak - 2 for 4, 2 R, 3B, 2 RBI
Adam Haseley - 2 for 4, R, 2B, RBI, SB
Austin Listi - 2 for 4, R, RBI, K
Darick Hall - 0 for 4, 3 K
Cornelius Randolph - 0 for 4, K
Arquimedes Gamboa - 2 for 4, R, 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K
Luke Williams - 0 for 2, 2 BB, 2 K, CS

Mauricio Llovera has seemingly fixed his “walking too many batters” issue and replaced it with “giving up too many hits” issues. In his first three starts he gave up only 6 hits in 14.1 innings, but walked 12. In his last three starts he has given up 18 hits in 16.2 IP, but only walked 4. Anyways, Llovera has a 2-0 record and 4.06 ERA with 36 strikeouts in 31 innings. The offense kicked butt behind him, collecting 9 hits and were opportunistic. That was Moniak’s 5th triple of the season and Gamboa’s first double.

Clearwater 7, Lakeland 6 (11 innings)

Andrew Brown - 4.2 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 2 K, 8 GB, 4 FB
Simon Muzziotti - 0 for 5, BB, K
Alec Bohm - 1 for 4, RBI, 2 BB
Matt Vierling - 0 for 4, 2 K, HBP
Madison Stokes - 1 for 5, R, 2 K
Colby Fitch - 1 for 2, 2 R, 2B, 3 BB, SB
Jhailyn Ortiz - 1 for 4, 3 R, HR, 3 RBI, BB, 3 K
Ben Aklinski - 0 for 3
Daniel Brito - 2 for 5, R, 2B, 3 RBI
Dalton Guthrie - 0 for 5, 2 K (fielding error)

Who doesn’t love late-game heroics twice? The Threshers tied the game in the bottom of the ninth, scoring two runs via a double from Daniel Brito. After going down a run in the 11th inning, Daniel Brito singled home Jhailyn Ortiz to tie the game. Alec Bohm would eventually single Brito home for the walk-off victory.

Lakewood 4, Hagerstown 3

Dominic Pipkin - 5 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 0 ER, BB, K, WP, HBP, 4 GB, 6 FB
Jhordany Mezquita - 4 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 2 GB, 2 FB
Jonathan Guzman - 1 for 4, R, SB
Matt Kroon - 0 for 4, 3 K
Luis Garcia - 0 for 3, BB, K
Abraham Gutierrez - 1 for 3, RBI, BB
Malvin Matos - 0 for 4, 3 K (outfield assist, 3B)
Carlos De La Cruz - 1 for 3, R, 2B, BB, K
Ben Pelletier - 3 for 4, R, 2B
Hunter Stovall - 1 for 4, RBI
Jake Holmes - 0 for 3, K (fielding error)

More late-game heroics! After going down 3-2 in the top of the 9th, Hunter Stovall hit a RBI-single to tie the game in the bottom of the inning and then a passed ball would allow the walk-off run to score. Jhordany Mezquita got his second win of the season despite giving up the go-ahead run.
