Sorry for missing yesterday’s recap. We drove up from Clearwater and opted to drive straight thru rather than stop half way. I’m still beat, and my laptop doesn’t have the functionality that I’m used to on my desktop. So, here’s the start of those really truncated Recaps I promised.
Old news, we traded McKenzie Mills to Miami for 1B Justin Bour. I got this message while on the road. Alec Bohm was activated, and made a rehab start in the GCL. His only playing half of a game is no big deal. The Phillies do this a lot. J.P. Crawford was eased back into action recently playing half games his three appearances.
And last night, Wilson Ramos made his first rehab appearance with the Threshers, and played just five innings.
The Clearwater Threshers (62-54) lost to St. Lucie, 11-0. Mickey got one of the Threshers’ three hits. Mets pitchers struck out 14 Threshers. Alejandro Requena gave up 5 runs. Blake Quinn allowed 2 inherited runners to score and gave up the other six runs.
GCP Phillies East (23-19) game v. Braves was suspended due to rain, no score.
GCL Phillies West (24-20) swept the Tigers East, 4-3 and 2-1. Ben Brown won game one. Jake Kinney struck out two in one inning. Logan O’Hoppe had two sac flies. Luis Garcia went 1-3 with a double. Victor Vargas and junior Tejada combined to strike out 11 in 9 innings. Abrahan Gutierrez had 2 hits and an RBI. Yerwin Trejo stole 3 bases (19).
Lehigh Valley (71-47) beat Louisville, 7-6 in ten innings. Hector Neris struck out the side in one inning and got the win. Pedro Beato got his 30th save. Joey Meneses had 3 hits and an RBI. Zach Green and Matt McBride had 2 hits each. Danny Ortiz had 2 hits and 3 RBI.
Reading (57-60) beat Binghamton, 4-3. Deivi Grullon hit a 2-run HR. Jeff Singer earned his 11th save.
Lakewood (73-44) lost to Hickory, 2-1. Andrew Brown pitched six, two-hit, shutout innings. The BlueClaws were held to 4 hits.
