Clearwater (1-6) lost to Jupiter, 8-4.
Adonis Medina pitched a solid first inning, and then quickly unraveled over the next 1.2 innings. After a 13-pitch first inning that included a base hit, Medina labored through a 26-pitch second inning. He recorded two strike outs in the inning, but also hit a batter and gave up a run and two singles. He looked defeated in a 37-pitch third inning where he only managed two outs. He gave up a one-out grand slam. After this, a wild pitch and passed ball set up the fifth run of the inning. His FB was 91-96 mph and sat 93-94. He touched 96 mph once. Four of the seven hits he allowed came off FB, including the GS which was off a 94 mph FB.
Blake Quinn struck out six in 3.1 innings of one-hit ball. He walked none. Ismael Cabrera struck out five in 3.0 innings, but gave up 2 runs in the ninth to seal their fate.
The date marked Adam Haseley’s 22nd birthday. He celebrated with a double and a run scored. Mickey Moniak also doubled on a line drive that sliced toward the right field corner and rolled under the gate, robbing him of an RBI. Darrick Hall had 2 hits including a solo HR and two RBI. Austin Listi had 2 doubles and an RBI. Raul Rivas had 2 hits and just missed a HR on a deep fly ball to right.

Lakewood (4-4) beat Delmarva, 2-0.
Will Stewart tossed a gem. He pitched 6.0 shutout innings allowing four hits. He walked none and struck out four. He has won both of his starts this season and has not allowed an earned run. Jonathan Henningan struck out two and walked none in 2.0 innings of no hit relief. Kyle Dohy walked two, threw a wild pitch, and struck out two in the ninth before giving way to Luis Ramirez who locked up his first save.
Quincy Nieporte provided the only run Stewart would need with a HR in the fourth inning. The Claws added an insurance run in the fifth when Cole Stobbe led off with a double, advanced to third on Rodolfo Duran’s ground out, and scored on Dalton Guthrie’s sac fly.
Stobbe and Simon Muzziotti had two hits each. Yahir Gurrola went 1-3 in his first game after being called up from XST.

There are over 90 players at the Complex. The Phillies aren’t providing a list of which players are in camp. XST games started Monday. I identified 90 players today. There are easily another half dozen or more who I could nit. They are likely young guys from the DSL (mostly pitchers) who were brought stateside for a look see. I’ll post the “official” roster after I identify a few more.
There were three games at the Complex again. Two against the Pirates and one against a traveling team of former minor leaguers. The traveling team was no-hit 4-0 by Gustavo Armas, Tommy Bergjans, Tim Berry, Joey DeNato, and Josh Tols. Carlos De La Cruz crushed a 2-run HR in the game.
A young group beat the Bucs, 6-0. Kyle Gogloski, Gabriel Yanez, Anton Kuznetsov, and Abdallah Aris pitched.
Another group that looked like Williamsport guys beat the Pirates 2-1 (I think). Pitchers included Manuel Silva, Bailey Cummings, Rafael Carvajal.
I saw Jonathan Miller and Junior Tejada warm up but didn’t see on which field they pitched.
