The Clearwater Threshers (43-47) lost to the Florida Fire Frogs, 11-3. Ramon Rosso (2-1, 2.65) gave up 4 runs on 10 hits in six innings. He walked none and struck out six. Will Hibbs had a rough 0.1 inning. He hit 2 batters, walked one, and gave up 3 hits. Addison Russ (2.79) allowed both of his inherited runners to score and gave up an unearned run. Gabriel Lino pitched the final inning and kept the Frogs off the board.
Joey Wentz (my fave from the 2016 draft) shut out the Threshers for 6.2 innings on 5 hits. Clearwater scored on his replacement, but he wasn’t left in long enough to turn the score around. Luke Williams continues to impress, going 2-4 with 2 RBI. Jose Gomez also had 2 hits, Mickey Moniak had a double.
Their line up looks anemic with the loss of Darick Hall, Austin Listi, and Adam Haseley. And, with no replacements sent up from Lakewood, it looks like a long second half.
GCP Phillies East (13-8) beat the Braves, 7-3. Victor Santos (3-1, 3.91) gave up 2 runs in 5.1 innings on 6 hits. He walked none and struck out six. Bailey Cummings (0.69) was touched for an unearned run and struck out two. Adam Cox (2.35) struck out two in a perfect inning.
Jack Conley (.393) is bucking for promotion going 3-3 with a run scored, RBI, and 2 walks.
Jack Holmes (.338) went 2-4 with an RBI. Nicolas Torres (.392) had 2 hits including his first HR. James Smith went 1-5 with 3 RBI and had an outfield assist at third base. Logan Simmons went 1-3 with 2 walks.
GCL Phillies West (12-10) beat the Tigers East, 10-8. Rafi Gonell (2.89) pitched five innings. He gave up 4 runs (2 ER) on 4 hits and 2 walks. He struck out six. Leonell Aponte (1-1, 5.25) tossed three scoreless innings while the Phillies rallied into the lead. Jaylen Smith (7.11) gave up 4 runs in 0-2 innings, and Ethan Evanko (2.57) came in to get the final out, strand an inherited runner, preserve the win, and collect his first save.
Just look at that box score. Note the far right column. All averages are .289 or better. Of special note is Logan O’Hoppe’s (.469) 4 for 4. We sure seem to have a lot of catchers who can hit.
On the defensive side, Corbin Williams threw out two base runners, one at home and one at third. (He also had 3 RBI.)
