Buffalo 10, Lehigh Valley 9

Chase Anderson - 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 GB, 2 FB
Matt Vierling - 1 for 5, R, 3B, RBI, K
Didi Gregorius - 1 for 5, RBI (fielding error)
Mickey Moniak - 2 for 5, R, RBI
Darick Hall - 1 for 5, HR, 2 K
Rafael Marchan - 1 for 3, R, 2B, RBI, HBP

Remember Chase Anderson? That starting pitcher guy the Phillies thought could be a good 4/5 starter (the results may shock you) with his first rehab appearance. The rest of the LHV relief gave up 10 runs (5 earned) on 13 hits and 2 walks. The IronPigs made a valiant effort to make a comeback but fell short in the top of the 9th.

Erie 3, Reading 2

Jack Perkins - 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, HR, 7 GB, 4 FB
Daniel Brito - 2 for 5, R, 3B, K
Bryson Stott - 0 for 4, K
Jorge Bonifacio - 2 for 3, 2B
Josh Stephen - 2 for 4, R, 2B, K
Rodolfo Duran - 0 for 3, BB

Reading relinquished the tie game in the bottom of the 7th with Aneurys Zabala taking the loss. The Fightin’s offense outhit Erie 11 to 7 but were 1 for 10 with RISP and left 8 on base. Bryson Stott is in the middle of an uncharacteristic slump at the plate over his last three games, going just 1 for 14 with 5 strikeouts.

Hudson Valley 8, Jersey Shore 7 (F/10)

Kevin Gowdy - 5.2 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 4 ER, BB, 5 K, WP, 8 GB, 0 FB
Logan O’Hoppe - 2 for 5, HR, 2 RBI, K
Casey Martin - 0 for 4, R, BB, 2 K
Jhailyn Ortiz - 1 for 4, R, BB, 2 K
Vito Friscia - 1 for 4, RBI, K (fielding error)
Jonathan Guzman - 0 for 3, BB, K

Kevin Gowdy’s start was a rollercoaster ride last night. He started the game with striking out the side in the 1st, then followed it up with a 1-run 2nd inning and a 3-run 3rd inning before settling down for the remainder of his outing. The BlueClaws actually battled back down 6-1 to tie the game and force extra innings. Sadly, HV scored 2 in the top of the inning to just JS’s 1 in the bottom of the 10th. Logan O’Hoppe hit his 6th homer of the years.

St. Lucie 13, Clearwater 4

Gunner Mayer - 1.2 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, K, HR
Rafael Marcano - 3.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 4 GB, 0 FB
Baron Radcliff - 1 for 4, 2 K
Yhoswar Garcia - 0 for 4
Johan Rojas - 1 for 4
Kendall Simmons - 2 for 3, R, 2B, 3B, RBI (fielding and throwing errors)
Abrahan Gutierrez - 2 for 3, R, RBI
Rixon Wingrove - 0 for 3, K
Luis Garcia - 2 for 3, 2 HR, 3 RBI
Juan Aparicio - 1 for 2, 2B, BB, K
Nicolas Torres - 0 for 3, K

Thresher pitching was dreadful last night, giving up 13 runs on 12 hits and 8 walks so the offense didn’t even stand a chance despite Luis Garcia’s two homers (his 3rd and 4th of the season). After a disappointing 2019, Garcia is slashing .239/.362/.381 with 2 SB.

FCL Yankees 11, FCL Phillies 3
