Our guys won one of four games last night, again. Clearwater was two-hit by and lost to Dunedin. Two Lehigh Valley pitchers were perfect through seven innings in a victory over Syracuse. Reading’s latest streak is up to two losses after losing an early lead against Akron. And, Jersey Shore was shut out by Winston-Salem.
The three lower affiliates scored two runs, suffered two shutouts, and collected 8 total hits.
(I couldn’t make it to the game for personal reasons. This is going to be short and sweet. Well, maybe not sweet.)
Clearwater (7-9) was 2-hit in a 1-0 loss to Dunedin.
Cristian Hernandez (2.77) allowed a hit and a walk in four, shutout innings, striking out six. Fernando Lozano (2.61) allowed 2 hits and an unearned run in three innings, striking out four. Carlo Reyes (0.00) pitched two, one-hit innings, striking out two.
The unearned run was a true gift – single, force out, sacrifice bunt and a missed catch error, and finally, a run-scoring fielding error followed by a strikeout and ground out.
Johan Rojas (single) and Abrahan Gutierrez (double) had the Threshers’ only two hits.
Lehigh Valley (10-6) beat Syracuse, 8-4.
Adonis Medina (five innings, 4 K) and Damon Jones (two innings, 2 K) threw seven perfect innings. The IronPigs had an 8-run lead when Bryan Mitchell gave up 2 runs in the eighth. He faced four batters in the ninth before Jeff Singer entered a bases-loaded situation. He allowed an inherited runner to score on a potential game-ending double play. But that was all.
The IronPigs broke the scoring seal with a 7-run sixth inning on an RBI single by Luke Williams, 3-run HR by Mickey Moniak, Edgar Cabral’s bases-loaded walk, and a 2-run force out by Travis Jankowski. Ruben Tejada plated a run in the eighth on a single.
Williams (.365) and Cornelius Randolph (.362) had two hits each.
Reading (3-13) lost to Akron, 3-2 on 3 hits.
The Phils scored two runs in the first inning on Matt Vierling’s 2-run HR in his return to the lineup. And, they managed just 2 more hits the rest of the game.
Daniel Brito and Madison Stokes had the other two hits.
Ethan Lindow pitched three innings. He gave up a run on a bases-loaded walk. He allowed two hits and walked three while striking out two. Billy Sullivan pitched two, scoreless, one-hit innings in his Double-A debut. In his two innings, Jonathan Hennigan gave up a 2-run HR among the one hit and 3 walks he issued. Zach Warren pitched a scoreless inning.
Jersey Shore (7-9) lost to Winston-Salem, 5-0 on 3 hits.
