7 thoughts on “Box Score Recap – 5/7/2017

  1. The new Bash bothers “King Kong Kingery “and Andrew ” the Comeback “Pullin. Both have 7 home Runs both are doing it outside of Reading. Hall with another Hoskins too and Cozens holy Homers . Maybe we can field a team of 1st basemen someday. Mickey Mo another good day. SD and Appel the 2 best pitchers.

    1. Phils could have a perfect Sunday if not for the poor start in the 10th inning by Wags and a decision to challenge a batter who is 3 of 4, HR, 2 RBI, 0K for the day (Riley) vs Jackson who is hitting 0 of 4, 2K.

      i’m also about to say the mini-bash brothers impersonation that Kingery and Pullin are doing. REA weakness as of now is the starting pitching and the clean up spot – if Martin can perform at a Darrick Hall level, REA can score more runs.

      LWD offense can still improve when Gamboa returns. LWD pitching is best amongst all Phillies team – starting and bullpen.

  2. Crawford’s been on base in 14 straight games. He’s 10 for 48 (.209 BA) with 10 BBs in those games. His BA is up 70 points during that stretch and his OBP has jumped dramatically.

    Interesting that 2 guys can lead the league in RBIs with one hitting .172 and the other .337. That’s Cozens and Hoskins respectively.

    Darick Hall changes the entire appearance of the LKW lineup. Suddenly, they have a solid pounder hitting 4th and the other guys are getting on base and even knocking in some runs of their own. Also Carlos Duran is hitting .333 in the 2 hole in the lineup. He’s hitting .091 anywhere else in the lineup. With Brito, Duran, Moniak and Hall the first 4 in the lineup, suddenly some runs are scoring.

    1. I cant wait to see Crawford bat again ,Only saw one game on channel 59 this year. They only do Saturday games. and not every week.

  3. Like to see how Hall will handle Hi-A pitching.
    If he continues like he is now, he may have his opp after the mid-season promos.
    Both him and Hoskins had close- to-similar metrics in their respective last seasons in college ball.

  4. Romus i asked you before i believe about Stassi swing. I just never seen this kid as a hitter. but i know he changed his swing. Its now long and he isnt a big league hitter imo. Time to see if the kid at lhv is the answer. Also watch Knapp bat he looks like del unser from left side

    1. The Stassi Bros, Max and Brock, both changed their swings, instructed to them by a notable hitting instructor, over the off-season a couple years ago and it seem to work for both of them. He just needs to make the adjustment to MLB pitching now.
      Yeah…I guess you can say a LHB Knapp has a similar batting style to Del Unser.
