Well, this season’s only trade deadline passed with the loss of very little of the Phillies’ prospect capital. Whew!
The Phillies added several pieces at the cost of Austin Bossart, cash, and international dollars. We are left to sweat a PTBNL, probably a guy from Williamsport. That might hurt.
Clearwater (19-22, 55-52) postponed.
Lehigh Valley (52-55) beat Buffalo, 11-7.
Cole Irvin pitched 3.2 innings and gave up 4 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks. Austin Davis pitched 1.2, 3-hit innings. He walked one and struck out three. Tyler Gilbert came in to strand 2 inherited runners. He pitched 1.2 clean innings with 2 strike outs. Josh Tols got touched for 3 unearned runs in 0;2 innings.

Reading tied the game in the seventh inning on Jose Antequera’s RBI double. The game went to extra innings and the Phils tenth started with Josh Stephen on second base. He couldn’t advance on a ground out, but reached third base on a fielding error by Jesmuel Valentin (remember him?) on a Raul Rivas ground ball. Henri Lartrigue walked to load the bases. Antequera ground into an RBI force out to plate the go ahead run. Valentin threw errantly on the double play pivot and the Phils scored a second run on the play.

GCL Phillies East (14-12) split with Yankees East, losing 11-0 and winning 4-3.
Game One: Rafael Marcano was lifted after 6 batters. His inning went to shat after two-out, strike out/wild pitch. He went on to walk two batters and force in a run. I believe that he reached the 27-pitch limit in an inning that the Phillies enforce. However, the game continued down the same rabbit hole for the bull pen.
Maikel Garrido got the third out in the first inning, stranding three inherited runners. But, he didn’t pitch well after that. He got two outs in the second then walked two batters, fell behind the next batter, and gave up a 3-run HR. Garrido started the third with a walk and a strike out. Then the Yankees teed off of him until he was lifted. He gave up 6 runs on 3 hits and 3 walks in 1.2 innings.
Gabriel Cotto relieved and gave up a run-scoring single but followed that with 2 strike outs. He kept throwing strikes for 3.2 innings and allowed 4 runs on 6 hits and a walk with 3 strike outs.
The Phillies had 5 singles, Jevi Hernandez (.293) went 2-3.
Game Two: Gabriel Yanez tossed a solid four innings. He allowed a first inning run on 2 singles and a walk. The only batter to reach base after that was on a fielding error. Yanez picked him off first. Yanez went four innings, striking out three. Brendan Bell followed with a clean inning and a strike out. Carlos Francisco pitched the final two innings and gave up 2 runs on 2 hits, striking out three.
The Phillies scored 2 run in the fourth inning on RBI singles by Marcus Lee Sang and Vito Friscia. They added a run in the fifth on Jose Tortolero’s sac fly. They were the home team for this game at the Yankees’ complex, and walked off in the seventh on another sac fly by Tortolero.
Wilfredo Flores (.422) went 2-3. Lee Sang and Friscia each went 1-3 with an RBI. Lee Sang had 2 hits on the day. Tortolero went 0-1 with 2 RBI.
