Minor League Action, 4/6

Not sure of the pitching matchups for 2 of the 3 games, the Ottawa game has been postponed due to ice/snow on the field.

Lakewood (0-1) v Greensboro (1-0), Lakewood wins 7-1

A solid performance for Lakewood, leveling their season record at 1-1. Edgar Garica, making his full season ball debut, was excellent to start, and was followed surprisingly by Kyle Drabek for an inning in relief. It could have just bene his day to throw and they wanted to get him work, or the Phillies might be easing him in to his first full season by starting him in the bullpen.

Berry: 2/4, 2 R, 1 BB
Donald: 2/5, 1 2B, 4 RBI
Cardenas: 0/4, 1 R
Milner: 2/4, 1 R, 1 3B
Henry: 1/3, 2 R, 1 3B

Garcia: 7.0 IP, 1 ER, 4 H, 0 BB, 5 K
Drabek: 1.0 IP, 3 K
G Hill: 1.0 IP, 1 K
Clearwater (1-0) @ Dunedin (0-1), Clearwater loses 9-7.

Jon Lieber made his first rehab appearance, going 3 innings, allowing 1 earned run on 4 hits, allowing zero walks and striking out 4. It wasn’t pretty thereafter, as Josh Outman got rocked to the tune of 6 ER in 2.1 IP. Maybe it was the uncomfortable weather, the uneasiness of pitching in relief, or maybe he just didn’t have it.

Golson: 2/5, 1 R, 1 2B
Harman: 0/5, 1 R
Slayden: 3/5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 3 RBI
Baez: 1/4, 1 R

Griffith: 0.1 IP, 1 BB
Outman: 2.1 IP, 6 ER, 7 H, 3 BB, 3 K
Weatherby: 1.2 IP, 1 BB, 3 K
Reading (1-0) v Harrisburg (0-1), Reading wins 7-6
Matt Maloney v Collin Balester

A solid outing from Matt Maloney, Mike Costanzo’s second home run in as many games, and Anderson Garcia notching back to back saves, not too bad a start for the R-Phils.

Moran: 2/4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB
Costanzo: 2/4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI

Maloney: 5.0 IP, 2 ER, 2 H, 4 BB, 3 K
N Johnson: 1.0 IP,
Garcia: 1.0 IP, 1 K, 1 SV

Ottawa (0-0) @ Rochester, PPD

Game Recaps, 4/5

Our first set of recaps for minor league games, very exciting.

Lakewood falls to Greensboro 11-7. To say it was a “rough start” for Carlos Monasterios would be a bit of an understatement. He allowed 7 ER on 5 H and 1 BB in just 0.2 IP, throwing 3 wild pitches and having a very forgettable debut to his 2007 season. Here’s a rundown of prospect performances in the game:

Monasterios: 0.2 IP, 7 ER, 5 H, 1 BB
Blaine: 4.1 IP, 2 ER, 3 H, 1 BB, 3 K
Freeman: 1.0 IP, 2 ER, 3 H, 1 K
Concepcion: 2.0 IP, 0 ER, 3 H, 1 BB, 3 K
R Hill: 1.0 IP, 2 K

Q Berry: 1/5, 1 R, 1 RBI
J Donald: 2/4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 BB
A Cardenas: 1/4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 BB
Milner: 1/4
C Henry: 2/4, 2 R, 2 RBI, 1 2B

Clearwater defeated Dunedin 9-3. Here is the wrap from the game. Freddy Garcia made a solid rehab start, tossing 3 innings and striking out 7. Here’s a rundown of the prospects in the game:

Golson: 3/4, 3 R, 1 RBI, 1 2B, 1 3B

Zagurski: 1.0 IP, 1 K

Reading defeated Harrisburg 4-1 in their opener, here is the game wrap for that one. New acquisition Landon Jacobsen won his debut, and Mike Costanzo hit his first AA home run. Prospect rundown is as follows:

Moran: 2/4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 2B
Costanzo: 1/4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 HR
