Box Score Recap; Post Season – 9/11/2016

The Lakewood BlueClaws will continue their post season against the Rome Braves on the road Monday night.  Lakeland has posted their staring rotation for the first four games on their web page.  Franklyn Kilome gets game one.

Note that the game four starter, Harold Arauz, is not on the Lakewood roster.  He was assigned to Williamsport on September 7th so that the BlueClaws could add the Crosscutters’ outfielder Jesus Alastre to the roster.  Expect one of the BlueClaws’ starting pitchers in games one, two, or three to be assigned to the short-season affiliate to make room for Arauz should the series go to four games.

Lakewood (74-65, 2-0)  Opens the SAL championship series in Rome, GA against the Atlanta Braves Class A affiliate.  Franklyn Kilome takes the mound in the opener.  Kilome finished the season with a 5-8 record and a 3.85 ERA.  In 114.2 innings, he gave up about one hit per inning (113, 8.9/9 IP), walked 50 (3.9/9 IP), and struck out 130 (10.2/9 IP).  His K/BB was 2.60 and he had a 1.422 WHIP.  He wasn’t particularly susceptible to the long ball, only giving up 6 HR (0.5/9 IP) in 23 starts.

Kilome pitched better down the stretch.  He went 4-1 in his final 10 starts with a 2.22 ERA. In 52.2 innings, Kilome gave up 45 hits (7.7/9 IP), walked 16 (2.7/9 IP), and struck out 71 (12.1/9 IP).  His K/BB was 4.41. and he had a 1.12 WHIP.  He gave up only 1 HR in his final 10 games (0.17/9 IP).

  1. I wasn’t expecting a post season post today so this was a welcome item.

    In case you don’t hear it enough Jim and Gregg, you provide a hell of a website.


    During the season, I check in early in the morning. I can spend an hour or two on some mornings. I try to check back a couple of times during the day. I feel like I know a bunch of the guys on this site like you were my neighbors. I know if I ever get to CLW for Spring Training I’ll be looking forward to meeting every Phillies fan I can and drink a few quarts of beer with you guys.

  2. What a 2016 run for our farm system. Let’s continue to cross fingers for LWD.
    The last 10 games splits for all our starting pitchers are off the charts. Rome’s pitching s superb too. So this seems to be a perfect pitchers series.
    Once the series is in LWD, I will consider it over with Tirado, Arauz and Tavares as starters.

    In a diferent topic, It seems that the phillies will probably loose a couple of pitcher to the rule 5 draft in the. Some have discussed that Tirado, Garcia (pitched great in doble a playoff), Lively, etc, etc, etc.

    If I were the Yankees I would steal Cozens and test him in the minuscule yankee statium. The baby bombers thing is starting to look scary.

    Jim, I’d be nice to see an analysis on this regard.

    In the mean time, let’s go Blueclaws!!!!!!!!!

  3. Jim, I appreciate your continued fine work with the site, continuing to post fresh content. It’s hard to believe that this is the last few days of the season. Let’s hope Lakewood makes it an enjoyable final week with their outstanding pitching getting valuable experience. Then it will be on to the Instructs, the AFL, the 40 man roster decisions, and then finally free agent decisions to ponder. I guess we’ll have stuff to talk about for awhile. Meanwhile I will hope to see Alfaro get a start in the next few days and enjoy watching Quinn, hopefully getting his first hit and first steal.
    Go Eagles! Wait, wrong place for that…

  4. First Jim, a thank you for the outstanding job you do on this site – I hope it brings you a good feeling inside to know how much enjoyment this site provides for so many of us and what a big part of our lives it is during the season. 2nd, to your regular contributors – V1, Romus, Roccom, et al., you guys are great – I continue to learn about our prospects and really enjoy the back and forth between you all. Good health and great offseason to everyone!
