Lehigh Valley was off last night.

Reading lost in ten innings.

Clearwater fell behind big early and lost.

Lakewood rallied from an early 3-0 deficit to win on a 3-run eighth inning.

Here’s the affiliate scoreboard from MiLB.

Lehigh Valley (6-6) no game scheduled.

Reading (5-9) lost to Harrisburg, 4-3 in ten innings.

Jacob Waguespack started and gave up 3 runs in six innings.  Edgar Garcia pitched two shutout innings while the Phils tied the game.  Seth McGarry struck out two in the ninth. Luke Leftwich took the loss when the runner from second tagged up on a fly ball and scored on a single to center.

The Phils scored a run in the fourth on Deivi’s force out and two runs in the seventh on Cord Sandberg’s 2-run HR.  Maybe Sandberg can squeeze out some more playing time in Reading’s crowded outfield.

Emmanuel Marrero added two walks and a SB.

Clearwater (3-11) got spanked again, losing to Charlotte, 10-3.

Adonis Medina had his second consecutive bad start.  He lasted 1.2 innings and gave up 6 runs.  Ismael Cabrera fared little better going 2.2 innings and giving up 4 runs.  Jake Hernandez allowed 2 base runners in 1.2 innings.  Blake Quinn allowed one in one.  And Jeff Singer gave up 2 hits in his one inning.

The Threshers used four consecutive singles to score a run in the third.  Jose Pujols hit a solo HR in the fourth.  They got their third run on Luke Williams’ sacrifice fly.

Darick Hall left the game after being hit by a pitch in the sixth inning.  Earlier, the Stone Crabs starting shortstop was hit by a pitch thrown by Medina and had to leave the game when he reached third base after two wild pitches.

Mickey Moniak had 3 hits.  He has had a hit in 7 of his last 8 games.

(Note: there was a scoring change in the April 17th game that took an error from Pujols that turned two unearned runs into earned runs charged against Bailey Falter, raising his ERA from 2.00 to 4.00.)

  1. Reading had 10 hits and received 8 BBs and they scored 3 runs? That’s not a good sign.

    Edgar Garcia, the 21 yo righty, has pitched 12 innings and given up only 6 hits and no runs, earned or otherwise, with 11 Ks. He’s also given up 5 BBs but 4 of them were in one outing.

    Muzziatti has been impressive. I was unhappy to hear he was put on the 7 day. So far this year he’s hitting .304/.319/.391. Don’t expect any HRs since he has none in 390 ABs but he gets on base. Is he the 2nd coming of Tocci?

  2. Jhailyn with 5 hits in last 2 games, incl. 3 XBH. Hopefully the first week will soon be forgotten.

  3. Medina hit hard again, on top of Romero being hit hard multiple times, makes me nervous. Healthy arms? Let’s hope Sixto’s 2nd start is better than his first.

  4. I know the Phillies are using the Williamsport roster to manipulate the pitching staffs of the other affiliates, but what is the deal with Cole Stobbe on the Crosscutters’ roster right now ? Is he hurt or something else ?

  5. the only brightspot for the pharm performance so far is that the big league club and especially Pivetta and VV are surprisingly performing above expectations so no reason to rush anyone. if necessary, just let everyone stay at the level theyre at for a year and grow slowly

  6. I would imagine if Clearwater doesn’t get their act together and develop winning culture, Shawn Williams won’t be back with the organization. I was not impressed with his managing at Lakewood, having seen 6-8 of their games last season.

    1. marty malloy was lakewood’s mngr last season. milb mngrs really have their hands tied with their options (via parent club) though.

    2. I would hope minor league managers and coaches are judged entirely on their teaching skills. do guys get better on their watch?

      1. Good point. Execs primary job is to identify talent. Managers and coaches are tasked with developing it. Can’t say I’m thrilled with the overall progress of either on the farm right now.

        1. well look at major league pitching. It is just SSS , a coincidence or something more that the starting pitching is better wihout bob McClure?

        2. agreed. as a big market team, we should be paying out the a**, for the best minor league instructors possible

    3. Clearwater’s issues are mostly pitching related thus far. Team pitching is dead last in the league with a team era at over 6 runs per game. The offense has the 4th most runs scored in the league but it’s tough to win when the pitching staff is giving up so many runs. The surprising thing is some of the guys in the bullpen that have pitched at higher levels in past years are really struggling at this level.

  7. On Micky Mo, Oritz there both 19 yrs old . Ups and downs will come and go.Even Jo,Jo and Medina maybe working on something we know nothing about.

  8. Nice to see a Moniak with a 3 hit game. Need to see multi hit games out of him
    Often, with SO getting cut down. Hope is starting to turn the corner/heat up

    1. As quoted from Keith Law on other threads:

      “Both play at 19 this year; Ortiz won’t turn 20 until November. So I’d say no number of games will concern me with those two. And it is f**king FREEZING in the northeast and upper midwest.”

  9. What’s most concerning to me is there is NOBODY in the organization who is dominating at there level. Two weeks into the schedule, it would be nice to see somebody batting .400 if only for the first month. Or a SP with an ERA around 1.00🤓

    1. agreed.
      is that because we are drafting for high floor instead of high ceiling?
      makes sense since we have more depth as a system driving our rating than high end talent ( none in top 10)

    2. What’s most concerning to me is that two weeks into the schedule people are fretting over how guys are performing 2 weeks into the schedule. sure it would nice to have everyone hitting .500 or having a 0 ERA but come mid-season, where they were on April 20th won’t matter..

      1. Nor did anyone dominate all last season as well. Sorry for not expanding my time frame in making my point, 3up. Thanks for helping me put it in better context.

      2. I think the bigger concern is high draft picks like Randolph and moniak who have shown no signs of dominating in their minor league time. Hard to find quality major leaguers who never dominate in the minors

  10. It hasn’t been much fun reading the boxscores so far but definitely far too early to panic. Don’t understand why Randolph bats so low in the order if he is a better prospect than the guys hitting above him. It’s not like he got dropped in the order because of his slow start. He’s been there all along .

    1. agreed
      if the purpose of the minors is foremost player development, bat your best prospects at top of lineup to get more atbats .
