Lehigh Valley 4, Rochester 2

Matt Moore - 3.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 2 HR, HBP, 3 GB, 4 FB
Adam Haseley - 0 for 4
Scott Kingery - 1 for 4, R, 2B, K
Nick Maton - 1 for 4, RBI
Mickey Moniak - 1 for 4
Rafael Marchan - 2 for 3, R
Austin Listi - 1 for 3, HR

The Matt Moore experiment continues, but thankfully in AAA. He is clearly not good. The bullpen behind him combined for 5.1 shutout innings. Darick Hall delivered a pinch-hit 2-RBI double to put the IronPigs ahead in the 5th inning. Austin Listi has struggled this season, but hit his first homer of the season last night.

Reading 5, Hartford 2

Mark Appel - 4 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 3 K, HR, 1 GB, 3 FB
Daniel Brito - 1 for 4, R, 2B, 2 K
Bryson Stott - 3 for 4, 2B, 2 HR, K
Matt Vierling - 0 for 2, R, 2 BB, K, SB (outfield assist, home)
Jorge Bonifacio - 0 for 2, R, 2 BB, K
Arquimedes Gamboa - 1 for 4, 2B, 2 RBI

Mark Appel, likely not good. Bryson Stott, likely pretty good! Stott hits his first three AA extra-base hits all in this one. His line across both High-A and AA this season is .277/.444/.553 with 7 homers and 29 walks to 30 strikeouts. He is clearly the top hitting prospect for the Phillies and if he keeps this up will be in consideration for MLB playing time next season.

Jersey Shore, Wilmington (ppd due to rain)

Clearwater 2, Tampa 1

Cristopher Hernandez - 3.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 5 BB, 5 K, 1 GB, 3 FB
Fernando Lozano - 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 4 K, 0 GB, 0 FB
Luis Garcia - 0 for 3, R, 2 BB, K, SB
Johan Rojas - 1 for 5, RBI, 4 K
Abrahan Gutierrez - 2 for 4, 2B, RBI, K (passed ball)
Rixon Wingrove - 1 for 3, K, HBP
Casey Martin - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K
Kendall Simmons - 0 for 4, 2 K
Baron Radcliff - 0 for 4, 3 K
Nicolas Torres - 1 for 2, R, 2 BB
Carlos De La Cruz - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K

Cristopher Hernandez hadn’t even had 5 TOTAL walks this season before entering this game. Luckily he limited the damage, holding a 2.10 ERA with 32 strikeouts to just 8 walks in 25.2 innings. Johan Rojas delivered the dramatic walk-off single in the bottom of the 9th to win the game. Abrahan Gutierrez continues to impress at the plate and is slashing .315/.415/.416 with 1 HR and 15 walks to just 13 strikeouts through 89 at-bats. He is certainly in line for a promotion soon.
