Lehigh Valley lost 11-1 to Buffalo. Nick Hill was activated for the game, taking the spot vacated when Adam Reifer was released. Maikel Franco and Tommy Joseph each went 2 for 4.
Reading was shut out again, this time 3-0 by Harrisburg. This time Aaron Nola benefited from the lack of run support. He allowed 2 runs in 7.0 innings giving up 6 hits and striking out six. Roman Quinn and Aaron Altherr each went 1 for 4 with a double. Carlos Alonso and Gabriel Lino each went 2 for 4.
Clearwater lost 5-2 to Lakeland. Miguel Nunez had another iffy start. He gave up 5 runs (4 ER) on 8 hits, 2 walks, and 0 strike outs in 4.0 plus innings. Mark Leiter came on to strand 2 inherited runners and strike out 8 in 4.0 innings. I wonder if this bullpen thing is etched in stone for him or if he can bump Nunez out of the rotation. Dylan Cozens went 2 for 4 with a double, their only XBH. Brodie Greene and Drew Stankiewicz added 2 hits. Their only other hit was by Willians Astudillo who extended his personal hit streak to 12 games.
Lakewood shut out Hagerstown, 4-0. Tyler Viza raised his record to 3-0 and lowered his ERA to 2.45 with 7.1 shut out innings. He allowed 3 hits and 2 walks while striking out six. Malquin Canelo went 3 for 4 with 2 doubles. Deivi Grullon went 3 for 4 with a double and a home run. Carlos Tocci added a double in three at bats.
