Clearwater (13-9, 49-39) game with Palm Beach suspended in the fourth inning with the Threshers leading, 3-1. Game will be completed Thursday as part of a double header.
Tyler Carr opened with 4 consecutive strike outs and went on to post 3.0 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K. The Threshers scored their runs in the third inning on Dalton Guthrie’s RBI single and Danny Mayer’s 2-run single.
This game probably should not ave started. Water hadn’t drained completely in shallow left field behind shortstop. Later when the rain started, the umpires waited too long to let the ground crew tarp the field. For some reason they felt compelled to complete the at bat for the lead off batter. As the at bat extended to 7 … 8 … 9 pitches, the infield was saturated to the point of several ponds forming. When the batter finally drove the 10th pitch of the at bat for a home run, I couldn’t follow the flight of the ball through the heavy down pour. By the time they allowed the crew to cover the infield it was too late. These guys were so bad that both managers were arguing with them up until the game was suspended. These are the same two guys who cost Matt Kroon a home run Monday night when the ball bounced off the batter’s eye (set 6-10 feet behind the center field wall) and back onto the field. Coach Malloy got tossed arguing with the umpire who made the call from the infield without moving into the outfield to get a better view. #UmpireRantOver

Williamsport (6-19) lost to Vermont, 11-2.
Jose Conopoima and Anton Kuznetsov pitched the first three innings (Conopoima was lifted due to an organizational pitch limit per inning). They gave up seven UNEARNED runs thanks to an unreliable defense that committed five errors in the game.

Mitch Rupert reported that the Crosscutters are 3-22 this season with the bases loaded with 11 strikeouts … their 3 hits with bases loaded have all been singles.
GCL Phillies East (5-5) postponed, field unplayable.
The Phillies were also supposed to complete a suspended, 13-inning game from last week. When the game was turned over to the umpires, they rightfully declared the field unplayable. We’ve been getting a lot of heavy, early morning rain for several days now. That decision, of course, carried over to the regular scheduled game.
GCL Phillies West (11-2) beat Yankees East, 8-4.
Gunner Mayer pitched three, shutout innings. He gave up 2 hits and struck out four. Daniel Vilchez pitched four innings. He gave up 2 runs on a 2-run HR, walked none, and struck out three. Jaylen Smith pitched one, no-hit inning. He gave up an unearned run, walking two. Dalvin Rosario gave up a run in one inning on 2 hits and 2 walks.
The Phillies scored 3 runs in the third inning on a force out and Andrick Nava’s 2-run single. Rixon Wingrove’s RBI double accounted for a run in the sixth. They opened up a 6-run lead with 4 runs in the seventh on Keaton Greenwalt’s solo HR (1), bases loaded walks to Wingrove and Christian Valero, and a bases loaded HBP by Edgar Made.
Jamari Baylor collected his first professional hit in his second at bat, a line drive single to center. He went 2-4 with 3 runs scored, a double, and walk. Greenwalt also had 2 hits. Wingrove and Nava had 2 RBI each.
- #27 Starlyn Castillo has a blister on his index finger and appears to be close to his first action. The finger looks to be completely healed.
DSL Phillies Red (20-10) no game scheduled.
