Phillies Minor League Roundup for 5/22/19

MLB: Spring Training-Philadelphia Phillies at Detroit Tigers Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

Today’s Probables:

LHV: Drew Anderson
REA: Bailey Falter
CLR: TBD
LWD: Kevin Gowdy

Lehigh Valley 6, Syracuse 4

Tom Eshelman - 5 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 6 K, 2 HR, 7 GB, 1 FB
Kyle Dohy - 1 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 3 K, WP
JD Hammer - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 K
Malquin Canelo - 1 for 3
Deivy Grullon - 2 for 4, 2 R, 2B, 2 K, SB
Mitch Walding - 1 for 3, 2 R, 2B, RBI, BB, K (fielding error)

Tom Eshelman wasn’t an outright disaster in his return to AAA, so that’s sorta nice. JD Hammer makes his AAA debut with two scoreless innings and earning his first win. Lehigh Valley broke a 4-4 tie with a two-run 8th inning. Mitch Walding’s RBI double provided the go-ahead run. That Deivy Grullon kid keeps on hitting that baseball, slashing .349/.397/.574 with 7 HR. Yeah the ball is probably juiced, but contact is contact at this point.

Reading 9, Richmond 1

David Parkinson - 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 9 K, 5 GB, 1 FB
Luke Williams - 2 for 4, 3 R, 2B, 2 RBI, BB, 2 K
Mickey Moniak - 1 for 4, 2 R, 2 RBI, 2 BB
Adam Haseley - 3 for 5, 2 RBI, K
Darick Hall - 0 for 4, K, HBP
Austin Listi - 1 for 4, RBI, 2 K
Cornelius Randolph - 3 for 5, R, 2 2B, K
Arquimedes Gamboa - 0 for 4, R, BB, K

David Parkinson put together one of his better starts of the season, earning his 4th win and lowering his ERA to 3.35 in 37.2 IP. The offense behind him took off, combining for 12 hits and 8 walks. After a poor April, Adam Haseley is slashing .343/.429/.528 with 4 HR and 3 SB in May. The same exact thing can be said about Moniak, whose line in May is .316/.342/.500 with 1 HR and 3 SB.

Daytona 8, Clearwater 7 (10 innings)

Andrew Brown - 5 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 4 K, HR, 5 GB, 2 FB
Simon Muzziotti - 2 for 5, 2 R, RBI, K
Alec Bohm - 1 for 5, RBI, 3 K
Jhailyn Ortiz - 1 for 5, R
Madison Stokes - 0 for 5
Nick Maton - 2 for 4, 2 R, RBI, BB, K, SB
Daniel Brito - 0 for 4, RBI, K
Edgar Cabral - 0 for 2, K
Colby Fitch - 1 for 3, RBI
Dalton Guthrie - 2 for 5, 2 R, 2B, K, SB (fielding error)
Ben Aklinski - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K

Andrew Brown left the game with a 3-3 tie. The Threshers would then take a 6-3 lead by the 7th inning. Zach Warren came and blew it by giving up 3 runs in the bottom of the 8th to tie the game and force extra-innings. The Threshers took back the lead in the top of the 10 via a Daniel Brito sac-fly. We would then go to the bottom of the inning where Luis Cedeno hit a batter and walk three to push in the tying and walk-off runs.

Delmarva 2, Lakewood 1

Francisco Morales - 4 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, BB, 10 K, 3 GB, 0 FB
Victor Santos - 3 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 5 K, 2 GB, 2 FB
Jonathan Guzman - 1 for 4, R, BB, SB
Ben Pelletier - 1 for 4, RBI, BB, 2 K
Carlos De La Cruz - 1 for 4, 2 K
Jake Holmes - 0 for 4

Well hello, Francisco Morales, more of this please. The stuff of Morales has never been of any doubt, its been whether he can properly command that stuff is the question. Last night he was undoubtedly on. The 19 year old has 50:13 K/BB in 30 innings this season and his upside remains incredibly high. Will he reach it? Maybe! Morales’ piggyback starter partner, Victor Santos, came on in relief and wound up putting the go-ahead run on base in a 1-1 tie in the bottom of the 9th. He would eventually give way to fellow reliever Gilmael Troya who would let that run score, leading to the Santos loss and Lakewood defeat.
