Rochester 3, Lehigh Valley 0

Adonis Medina - 4 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 6 GB, 1 FB
Enyel De Los Santos - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 5 K
Didi Gregorius - 0 for 1, BB
Adam Haseley - 0 for 4, 2 K
Nick Maton - 0 for 4
Mickey Moniak - 0 for 3, K
Scott Kingery - 0 for 3, K
Rafael Marchan - 0 for 1, 2 BB

A rare game where the IronPigs offense is completely shutout. Ryan Cordell provided the lone hit. Adonis Medina took his 3rd loss and saw his ERA rise to 4.85. Didi Gregorius takes his first rehab start, but didn’t last the whole game as he exited at the top of the 6th (hopefully he wasn’t scheduled to play the whole game). Enyel De Los Santos with another solid outing, so far in AAA he has a 2.79 ERA with 17 strikeouts to 3 walks in 9.2 innings. How the Phillies think he wouldn’t be an improvement over the likes of Brandon Kintzler is mindboggling.

Reading 6, Hartford 5

James McArthur - 4.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 6 BB, K, HBP, 6 GB, 6 FB
Daniel Brito - 0 for 5, 2 K
Bryson Stott - 2 for 4, K
Matt Vierling - 1 for 4, R, 2B, K
Jorge Bonifacio - 1 for 4, 2B, RBI
Arquimedes Gamboa - 1 for 4, R, 2B (outfield assist, home)
Nick Matera - 2 for 3, 2 R, HR, 3 RBI, BB

Nick Matera plays the hero in this one, not only did he hit his 5th HR of the season (2-run bomb in the 6th), he also hit the game-winning RBI single in the 8th. Arquimedes Gamboa back to playing some centerfield in this game, his 6th start in the OF this season. Matt Vierling remains a revelation this season with an impressive .296/.395/.549 slash with 4 homers and 5 steals in 71 at-bats.

Jersey Shore, Wilmington

Jersey Shore is having no luck with the weather this week. They were supposed to play a doubleheader yesterday, but the first game didn’t even finish because of further bad weather. It was suspended and will continue today as part of another doubleheader.

Tampa 11, Clearwater 8

Mick Abel - 1.1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, HR, WP, 1 GB, 0 FB
Luis Garcia - 1 for 5, R, BB, 2 K (throwing error)
Johan Rojas - 3 for 6, 3 R, HR
Abrahan Gutierrez - 1 for 3, RBI, BB, HBP (throwing error)
Rixon Wingrove - 1 for 4, RBI, K
Casey Martin - 1 for 4, R, 2B, BB, K (throwing error)
Kendall Simmons - 1 for 4, R, HBP
Baron Radcliff - 1 for 3, R, 3 RBI, 2 BB, K
Carlos De La Cruz - 0 for 5, 3 K
Nicolas Torres - 1 for 4, R, BB, 2 K, SB (fielding error)

Not a good one for Abel who was coming off one of his more impressive outings. He didn’t take the loss in this one because Alejandro Made and Brendan Bell gave up 8 additional runs. The Johan Rojas ressurgence continues as he is riding a 6-game hitting streak with a .367/.412/.800 slash with 3 homers.
