Nick Maton hit his third home run of the year to lead the offense, while Ricardo Sanchez threw three solid innings to open the game.

Logan O’Hoppe: 0 for 3
Wendell Rijo: 1 for 2, HR, 2 RBI
James McArthur: 2 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 1 BB, 2 K
A pretty miserable night for the Fightin’ Phils. James McArthur had a miserable start, not getting out of the third inning while allowing six runs on eight hits. The offense had only two hits all night, one of them a home run by Wendell Rijo that accounted for the only runs for Reading.
Clearwater 6, Fort Myers 1
Kendall Simmons: 3 for 5, 2 R, 2 2B, HR, 2 RBI
Yhoswar Garcia: 2 for 4, R, SB
Arturo de Freitas: 3 for 5, R
Gabriel Cotto: 5 IP, H, R, 2 BB, 4 K
It was the Kendall Simmons Show for Clearwater last night. Eight total bases on two doubles and a home run tends to do that for a player. Yhoswar Garcia continued his running ways with his 11th stolen base of the year, while the Threshers got a solid start out of Gabriel Cotto.
Aberdeen 12, Jersey Shore 1
Baron Radcliff: 2 for 4, 2B, HR, RBI
Casey Martin: 2 for 4, SB
Victor Vargas: 5 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 4 K
Dominic Pipkin: 0 IP, 3 H, 5 R, 3 BB, 0 K
A tough night for the Blue Claws. Not much offense aside from Baron Radcliff and Casey Martin, while the pitching kind of blew up. The start by Vargas was decent, but a horrendous outing by Pipkin put the game completely out of reach by the time Jersey Shore could do anything with the bats.
