I’ll touch on some of the interesting points in last night’s action, then we’ll get to today’s games.
GCL Phillies won 5-2.
* Sebastian Valle, likely to be the best prospect on the team, hit his first home run in pro ball.
Williamsport won 8-0.
* Rob Roth, who has scuffled a bit the last two seasons, pitched 6 shutout innings. Brandon Haislet went 1/1 with 3 BB from the leadoff spot.
Lakewood won 5-0.
* Julian Sampson, after reading my words of encouragement, tossed 6 shutout innings.
Clearwater lost 12-6.
* Benson and newly promoted Ben Pfinsgraff got shellacked. Cardenas was 2/5, Taylor was 1/5 in his FSL debut.
Reading won 4-3.
* Newly promoted Tyson Brummett goes 8.2 innings, leaving with the bases loaded only to see Sam Walls allow all 3 runs to score. King Lou goes 0/3 with a BB.
Lehigh Valley won 8-2.
* Chris Snelling got hurt, Swindle struck out the side and Jaramillo took an 0/4. Thats really all there is to see here.
Now, onto today’s action…
