  1. A lot of stuff to read today so I’m not digging down too far. It’s nice to see Kingery 3 – 4 and the HR was icing on the cake. The Reading field effect will probably be credited with that but power isn’t his game anyway. It has to feel great for him.

    Alfaro with a 4 – 5 is nice to see also. It’s his 2nd 4 hit game on the season. The other was the 2nd game of the season in April.

    1. In addition to 4 hits, Alfaro also had a broken seat to his night. On a swing and miss he lost his bat and it ended up hitting an empty seat in the blue seats in section 9 above the Mets dugout. This was about 8 rows below where I was sitting.

      Kingery’s homerun just cleared the fence in left. I didn’t think it was going to leave the park but it just kept on carrying. Definitely the influence of the park.

      Jimmy Cordero had an exciting 9th inning, his pitches were all over the place. According to the park’s radar gun he did hit 99 on at least one pitch.

  2. Kingery is hitting .333 at Reading. Should he be promoted to the Phillies to replace Hernandez?

    And yes, I’m being sarcastic…

  3. ‘Mitch Walding was picked off third base by the catcher.’…well at least he is keeping in line with the Philly Way of base running this season..

    1. And it was an Aruban named Tromp. Not sure if he’s related to Jiandido but 2 guys named Tromp from Aruba has to have some sort of relation.

      1. Both Chadwick and Jiandido from the same town also, born 18 months apart….do you think brothers?

  4. OK, the Luis Ramirez update: The DSL 18-year-old RHP is up to 16 appearances, 17.2 innings and still no earned runs. 21K. Starting to allow some walks, 7 so far. 0.74 WHIP.

    Moniak just keeps getting better. On base three of five times Wednesday. Fourth stolen base. Maybe he deserves a trip to Williamsport to go up against somewhat more mature competition for the last month of the season.
