Threshers’ and Affiliates’ Recap – 6/12/2021

Clearwater got “Neris-ed” last night.  Yeah, it’s becoming a “thing”.  Lehigh Valley split a pair.  Reading won again.  And, Jersey Shore struck out 20 times in a one-hit loss.

Clearwater (18-16) lost to Tampa, 6-4.  The Threshers built a 4-run lead over the first seven innings only to have it squandered by the long ball in the final two innings.

Jordi Martinez pitched four solid, shutout innings.  He allowed 2 hits and a walk while striking out four.  JP Woodward walked one in a scoreless inning.  Rodolfo Sanchez tossed two solid innings before coming unglued in the eighth.  He hit a batter and walked a batter and then after a mound visit gave up a one-out, 3-run HR.  They let him issue a walk and single before getting him off the mound.  Tyler Burch retired two batters to end the inning.  Then with two outs in the ninth inning, he walked the tying run and gave up a two-run HR to the Yankees’ 2019 first-round pick, Anthony Volpe.

The Threshers had built their lead with 2 runs in the fourth inning on Rixon Wingrove’s 2-run HR (2).  They added two runs in the seventh on Carlos De La Cruz’ RBI single and Yhsowar Garcia’s RBI triple.  Wingrove went 2-4.  Luis Garcia got a day off for the first time this season.

Lehigh Valley (18-17) split a doubleheader with Rochester, losing 9-0 and winning 2-1.

Game One:  A pitcher’s duel until the seventh inning.  David Parkinson was perfect for three innings.  He issued a couple walks to start the fourth inning and one came around to score on a ground out.  After the two walks, he retired 7 batters in a row, and 8 of nine.  Parkinson left with a runner on first.  He threw 5.2 innings of no-hit ball.  He gave up a run on 3 walks and struck out five.  JD Hammer came in to give up a hit before getting the third out.

Damon Jones started the seventh and prepped well before a possible trip out west on the taxi squad.  Maybe he put that in jeopardy with 5 runs on one hit, and four walks in 0.1 innings.  He left after facing 6 batters, the bases loaded, and 34 pitches.  Brady Lail came in and let all 3 inherited runners score plus 3 of his own in 0.2 innings on 3 hits and a walk.  Time to get his 24.55 ERA out of the organization.

The IronPigs managed just 4 hits.  Adam Haseley entered on a double switch and went 1-1.  Ruben Tejada had 2 hits and Ryan Cordell had one.

Game Two:  Another well-pitched game.  Cristopher Sanchez pitched 5.2 innings and gave up a run on 5 hits and 2 walks.  He struck out six.  Neftali Feliz stranded an inherited runner and went 1.1 innings of perfect ball, striking out two.

The IronPigs scored a run in the first inning on Mickey Moniak’s RBI single.  They got an insurance run in the fourth on Sal Gozzo’sRBI single.  Moniak went 2-3.  Nick Maton doubled and walked in 3 appearances.  Only one IronPig struck out.

Reading (10-25) beat Hartford, 8-1. That’s 5 out of 6 for the Fightin’ Phils.

Recently promoted Jack Perkins started and gave the Phils four solid innings.  He allowed one run on 3 hits and a walk.  He struck out five.  Kyle Dohy was awarded the win with two perfect innings and 4 strikeouts.  Braden Zarbniskey pitched two perfect innings and struck out three.  Billy Sullivan pitched one inning and walked one and struck out two.

The Phils built a big lead over the first three innings.  They scored a run in the first inning on Matt Vierling’s solo HR (6).  They scored two runs in the second on Jack Conley’s RBI single and pitcher Jack Perkins’ RBI triple.  And, they scored 3 runs in the third on Madison Stokes’ RBI double and Dalton Guthrie’s 2-run triple.  They tacked on 2 more runs in the eighth on Guthrie’s 2-run HR (2).  Vierling, Jorge Bonifacio, and Guthrie all went 2-4.

Jersey Shore (14-19) was one-hit and lost to Wilmington, 3-0.

The Nationals’2020 first-round pick, Cade Cavalli, tossed seven, no-hit against the BlueClaws.  He struck out fifteen.  His bullpen struck out another 5 batters in the last two innings.  That’s 20 Ks in one game.  Cavalli walked two.  The bullpen gave up the one hit.

Kevin Gowdy pitched 4.2 innings and gave up 3 runs (only one was earned) on 8 hits.  He walked none and struck out seven.  Andrew Brown allowed an inherited runner to score and allowed 2 hits and a walk in 2.1 innings.  Manuel Silva gave up a hit and a walk in two innings.

Logan O’Hoppe had the Phils’ only hit, breaking up the no-hitter with one out in the ninth.  Every Phil struck out 2 or more times except DJ Stewart who only struck out once.

GCL Phillies East and GCL Phillies West (runs 6/28 thru 9/12)

  1. Lail was outrighted off the 40 man roster a few days ago. I am not sure what the Phillies saw in this guy before they claimed him off waivers a couple weeks ago. He stinks.

    1. Bringing Lail in struck me as such a Klentak-type move. Taking the younger guy with better stuff (Rosso) off the 40-man to claim an older quad-A type who throws low-90s. I’m stunned it hasn’t worked out.

  2. I am not sure what the Phillies saw in Lail before they claimed him off waivers a couple weeks ago. This guy stinks. I am glad he is off the 40 man roster.

  3. Most exciting play of the night must have been watching Y Garcia leg out a triple.
    How does Dohy go back to Reading and get 4 Ks with 0 walks in 2 innings? Guys swing at certain pitches at AA that they don’t at AAA? Confidence? Friendly ump? Tough to say but please keep it up and bring it back with you to AAA (and bring some for your friend Jones).

    1. Dohy:
      Baffling to say the least.
      However, once ABS gets install thru-out baseball, the reliance on an ump’s abilities to call balls and strikes gets negated.
      At least I hope that will be the case

      1. I read that he was back at the complex working on his delivery for the last two weeks. Maybe he found something. Let’s see him repeat this performance. Jones could be the next one to go back to the workshop

  4. I’m assuming that each team has to list who’s on the taxi squad? How do we know who’s on that list?

    1. They’ll tell us after today’s game. Marchan for sure and probably Falter and maybe Llovera

      1. I would like to see Marchan stay for an extended period at LHV to get some AB’s. He has only had a total of 69 plate appearances this year combined at LHV and with the Phillies. He is too young and potentially too valuable to be the 3rd catcher for the Phillies.

        1. I’m not sure what you want to see from Marchan. JT is here for the next 4 years. So at best, he’s a backup. Marchan’s career minor league OPS is .685 so even if he hits .800 OPS this year, you won’t get value for that. He’s either a throw in piece to a deal or he gets you maybe a young unproven reliever if that.

  5. Was at Reading last night. Sullivan and Dohy were in the mid to high 90s. Was nice to see. Not sure what their secondary pitches were doing. Hoping they can be given a chance to help the big club soon.

    1. Willie…..that is good to hear.
      If Sullivan and Dohy keep progressing and avoid any wildness, there may be an opportunity for them at CBP before too long.
      Thanks for that update.

    2. How did Perkins look, as somewhere mostly likely on this site, but I remember someone saying to keep an eye out for him after we drafted him that he might be something decent one day.

      1. Daniel, can’t comment on Perkins as I wasn’t really paying much attention when he was in.

        Dohy being a lefty with that velocity caught my eye.

        I was hoping Sullivan would get into the game as I like his story. Turned down other teams, like the Dodgers, to play for his home town team. Just gotta root for him.
