Lehigh Valley (27-45) Off day Monday. Seve Gonzalez (1-4, 4.23) pitches Tuesday.
Reading (37-32) beat the Portland Sea Dogs 3-2. Zach Eflin pitched 6.0 shutout innings. He gave up 6 hits, struck out 4, and walked none. He threw 65 pitches, 45 strikes. Nefi Ogando pitched two, one-hit innings. Stephen Shackleford made it interesting with 2 walks, a wild pitch, and a two-out, two-RBI single before notching his 15th save.
J.P. Crawford went 2-4 with a walk. Kelly Dugan went 2-4 with a double and an RBI. Aaron Altherr went 1-3 with a double and a walk. Brock Stassi went 1-3 with a double, a walk, and an RBI. KC Serna chipped in with 2 hits.
Tom Windle (2-4, 5.00) pitches tomorrow.
Clearwater (35-33) beat the Daytona Tortugas 4-3. Ricardo Pinto made his first Advanced A start. Story HERE. Also some news on Dylan Cozens. (The Threshers finished the 2014 first half with a 17-51 record. With 2 games remaining in the 2015 first half, they can tie Daytona for the best record in the North Division. The Threshers would win the division based on head-to-head record. Not a bad turn around no matter the outcome, eh?)
Matt Imhoff (2-3, 3.63) pitches tomorrow.
Lakewood (33-35) All Star break until Thursday when TBD pitches.
Williamsport (4-0) beat the West Virginia Black Bears 7-4. Mitch Gueller pitched six, three-hit innings. He was charged with 3 runs, but only one earned. He allowed one walk and struck out four. Kenny Koplove pitched a one hit inning. Andrew Godail allowed a run in one inning on a hit and 2 walks. Jason Zgardowski picked up his second save with a two strike out, shutout inning. I read tweets that Gueller was 88-90 early but settled in at 86-88.
Venn Biter went 2-3 with a double, a walk, and an RBI. Jose Pujols went 3-4 with an RBI. Brendon Hayden went 0-2 with a walk and an RBI. Jan Hernandez went 1-4 with his 2nd HR and 2 RBI. Carlos Duran had 2 hits. Gregori Rivero went 2-3 with a walk and an RBI. Dylan Bosheers got his first professional hit, a triple.
Luis Morales starts tomorrow. (Larry Shenk is reporting that Denton Keys is starting today. Keys is listed as the Wednesday starter on the Cutters web page.)
GCL Phillies (1-0) opened their season with a 5-2 win over the GCL Yankees1. Every starter got at least one hit except Arquimedes Gamboa who went 0-5 with 4 Ks. Luis Encarnacion opened the scoring with a 2-run HR in the first. Jonathan closed out the Phillies scoring with a 2-run HR in the seventh. C Rodolfo Duran drove in the other run in the second. Arauz went 2-5. Greg Pickett went 2-4 with 2 doubles.
David Buchanan made the rehab start. He pitched 4.0 innings. He gave up one hit, struck out two, and walked none. Ranger Suarez got the win with four two-hit innings. He walked one and struck out two. Victor Delgado gave up two runs in the ninth on a walk and two hits.
FWIW, I don’t think Randolph made the trip to Tampa. He was active on social media during the game, and I can’t imagine that would happen from the dugout. Especially with several Phillies exec types in attendance, like Dallas Green.
DSL Phillies (10-9) lost to the DSL Astros Blue 7-3.
VSL Phillies (12-19) lost to the VSL Cubs 6-4 in 11 innings.
