Abbreviated Box Score Report
Here’s the affiliate scoreboard from MiLB.
Still using my cell phone as a personal hot spot. Doing a full blown Box Score Report over the shared connection on my cell phone is tedious.
So, I created a few Box Score Reports in advance that will upload each night automatically to provide the link to the box scores and a place to comment on games each day until I am completely back on the grid.
Sorry for this temporary inconvenience.
BUT! The organization’s pitchers really performed well today, especially the starters.
First, going into today’s games, we had the second and fourth lowest team ERA’s in the minor leagues in Lakewood (2nd) and Clearwater (4th). However, after the drubbing Lakewood endured in the second game of their double header today, that is unlikely still the case.
The Phillies attained a .500 record as Zach Eflin went 7.0 innings and held the Braves to a solo HR and 3 hits. Pat Neshek and Joely Rodriguez pitched a shutout inning, but Hector Neris tossed a shaky, one-run ninth.
Lehigh Valley climbed above .500 behind Jake Thompson who went 7.0 shutout innings (3 hits and 7 strike outs). Pat Venditte and Pedro Reato closed out the shutout.
Reading reached .500 behind Shane Watson’s 5.0 inning 2-hitter. Yacksel Rios, Mario Hollands, and Jessen Therrien closed out the 4-hit shutout.
Clearwater maintained their lead in the FSL North with a 5-hit shutout. Blake Quinn went 6.0 innings allowing 4 hits. Ranfi Casimiro and Jeff Singer closed out the Braves’ affiliate.
Lakewood’s Nick Fanti took a no-no into the fifth inning and left with a 6.0 inning 3-hitter. Ismael Cabrera gave up a run, but Zach Morris came in to secure the one-run victory.
But the day ended with Lakewood’s Felix Paulino (4 ER), Kenny Koplove (8 ER), and Johnathan Hennigan (3 inherited runners scoring) combining to allow 12 runs.
