No worries about wasting a great start tonight. Adonis Medina took the mound and settled things early. He retired just four batters and dug the Phils an early hole that proved too much to overcome. The bullpen was little better, giving up an additional seven runs before Julian Garcia and Aaron Brown combined for three scoreless innings.
The Phils dropped the series in three straight games. Luis Severino threw 50 pitches in three innings. He gave up five hits including a solo HR to Darick Hall, and struck out five. Dellin Betances threw a 19-pitch inning, walked one, and struck out one. To add further insult, a third rehabber, Thairo Estrada was activated. He only went 3-3 with 2 runs scored, a double, 3 RBI, and a walk. He left for a pinch runner after walking in the fifth.
The rehabbers were supposed to play with the Yankees AAA team, Scranton. The storm caused the Yankees to change their plans. Probably should have let them go to Durham as the Bulls beat the Railriders 4-2 last night and took a 2-0 lead in their series. The Phils faced rehabbing Jordan Montgomery in game one and scored twice against him.
Reading (42-31, 80-59) lost to Trenton, 12-2. Adonis Medina lasted 1.1 innings and gave up 5 runs on 8 hits. Jeff Singer lasted 1.1 innings. He stranded one inherited runner and gave up 4 runs on 2 hits, a walk, and 2 wild pitches. He left with the bases loaded. Grant Dyer lasted 1.1 innings and allowed three inherited runners to score. He also gave up a run on 2 hits. Edubray Ramos pitched one inning and gave up 2 runs on 2 hits and a walk. Julian Garcia pitched two scoreless innings allowing 2 hits and a walk. Aaron Brown struck out two in a 1-2-3 inning.
Darick Hall hit a solo HR off Luis Severino in the second inning, briefly tying the game. Nick Maton made it close with an RBI single in the eighth.
The Phils collected seven hits, only two after Severino left the game after three innings. Hall’s HR was their only XBH. They went 1-8 with RISP.
Here’s the Reading box score from MiLB.
This is the last Recap for the year. I’ll provide infrequent feature articles along with the Weekly Discussion. Players start arriving Sunday for Instructs as well as Strength and Conditioning. I’ll provide what coverage I can. First surgery is scheduled next week. I can start the weekly 2020 Amateur Draft and J2 Discussion unless Hinkie thinks it’s too early. I could start them now, or after Instructs, or after the AFL. What do you think? And, later on we have the Reader Top 30 to look forward to.

Williamsport (32-43) Finished in fifth place, 8.5 games behind the first place team.
GCL Phillies East (21-27) Finished in fifth place, 12.0 games behind the GCL Phillies West.
