Daily Discussion

The Phillies 6th round pick, Steven Inch has signed. Inch is a 18 year old RHP from Edmonton, Alberta and was at Citizens Bank Park last night.

In Lakewood last night, Matthew Way made his Class A debut and pitched well, going 7 innings and giving up just 1 earrned run, while striking out 9.  Anthony Gose stole his 59th and 60th bases for the BlueClaws.  Jason Knapp returned to Lakewood as a member of Lake County, but is still on the DL and won’t pitch this series.

In the 20 run effort by Williamsport last night both Anthony Hewitt (3-5,3r, hr, 3rbi) and Zach Collier (4-6, 2r- 3b, 4RBI) had very impressive nights.  Josh Zeid (4-3) threw 6 shutout innings.

Jason Anderson’s efforts in relief for Lehigh Valley deserve note.  In 26 appearances the 30 year old Anderson has gone 0-1 with a 2.41 ERA and 4 saves.  Opponents are hitting just .192 against him , .172 with RISP.  His WHIP is 0.93 for Lehigh Valley.  In his last 10 appearances, he gave up runs on only one occasion for a 1.46 ERA.
