The MLB Pipeline published the Phillies Top 30 Prospects (link). The biggest surprise, and I do mean the BIGGEST, is that the #27 prospect (Kevin Gowdy) looks exactly like the #26 prospect (Dominic Pipkin). Hope they pick prospects better than they take photos.
I’ll return to including the prospects’ game stats in each recap tonight.
The Clearwater Threshers (52-49) beat Lakeland, 10-7. Ramon Rosso (2.89) had an uneven start pitching great one inning and struggling the next. The pattern foretold what would happen in the sixth inning. Rosso entered the inning having given up 2 runs in the first five innings on 3 singles, 2 walks, and a hit batter. He had difficulty finding the strike zone and left with one out and a run and 2 men on base on a single, 2 walks, and a SF.
Blake Quinn (5.32) relieved without providing relief. He walked the first batter he faced to load the bases, then walked the next guy to force home a run. He struck out a batter before issuing a 2-run single. Will Hibbs (2-0, 8.31) pitched a clean inning, but was derailed by a phantom balk call in the eighth. Jonathan Hennigan (0.00) came in to finish the inning. Addison Russ (2.87) pitched the ninth and picked up his 5th save.
The Threshers banged out 14 hits and 10 runs. Five different hitters had multi-hit games.
Jose Pujols (.296) got the Threshers on the board in the first inning on a 2-run HR (17). He went 2-5 with 2 runs scored, a HR, and 3 RBI.
Mickey Moniak (.252) gave the Threshers a 3-2 lead with a two-out, RBI single in the fourth inning. He went 3-4, with 2 runs scored, a double, RBI, and walk.
The Threshers took an 8-6 lead in a 5-run seventh on Jose Pujols’ RBI single, Raul Rivas’ two-out 3-run triple, and Kevin Markham’s RBI bunt single. They added 2 more runs in the eighth on Edgar Cabral’s sac fly and an error. Moniak’s ground rule double put runners on second and third. Cabral lifted a fly ball to center field that scored Arquimedes Gamboa from third. Moniak retreated to second base and bluffed toward third. The center fielder one-hopped a throw into the Threshers’ dugout and Moniak was awarded home.
Cabral (.50) went 2-4 with 2 runs scored, an RBI, and a SF. Rivas (.250) went 2-4 with a run scored, triple, and 3 RBI. Markham (.327) went 3-4 with a run scored, triple, and RBI.
Rosso’s FB was 87-92 mph, and touched 93 once.

Trevor Bettencourt pitched a clean rehab inning. Alejandro Made (4.50) tossed a one-hit inning. Bailey Cummings (2-1, 0.51) struck out 3 in two innings and picked up the win when the Phillies scored in the ninth.
The Phillies scored 3 runs in the first inning on a fielding error and a 2-run single by Luke Miller. They scored twice in the ninth on a wild pitch and Julio Francisco’s RBI single.

The OT rule had Zac Curtis begin the tenth inning on second base. Tom Eshelman was inserted as a pinch runner. Roman Quinn bunted him over to third and Dean Anna drove him in with an RBI single.
