Threshers’ and Affiliates’ Recap – 6/13/2021

Our teams split four games yesterday.  Clearwater was three-hit in a one-sided loss.  Lehigh Valley threw away a game in the ninth inning.  Reading won again.  And, Jersey Shore ended a 20-inning scoreless streak and three-game losing streak with a big win.

Clearwater (18-18) lost to Tampa, 12-5.

Tampa pounded their way to victory with 10 hits and 12 walks.  Cristian Hernandez pitched four innings and gave up 6 runs on 5 hits and 2 walks while striking out seven.  Brendan Bell pitched one inning and gave up 3 runs on 2 hits and 3 walks.  Fernando Lozano went 2.2 innings and gave up 3 runs on 3 hits and 4 walks.  Tyler Adams stranded one runner and went 1.1 innings and walked three.

The Threshers closed to within a run with 2 runs in the second inning on Carlos De La Cruz’ RBI double and a ground out by Yhoswar Garcia.  They scored 3 runs in the fifth on Juan Aparicio’s 3-run HR (3).  The Threshers collected just 3 hits but did draw 7 walks and an HBP.

The Threshers were out-homered over the weekend, 9-2.

Lehigh Valley (18-18) lost to Rochester, 7-3.

The IronPigs came back twice to tie the game before fumbling the game away in the ninth.

They tied the game with 2 runs in the second on a fielder’s choice (no out) and a double play.  They tied the game again in the sixth on Nick Maton’s solo HR (1).  The IronPigs managed just 4 hits – Maton’s homer, Adam Haseley’s double in the second, and singles by Scott Kingery and Rubin Tejada.

Matt Moore pitched five innings and gave up 3 runs on 6 hits and 3 walks.  He struck out five.  Mauricio Llovera pitched a clean inning.  Julian Garcia pitched two solid innings before unraveling in the ninth with the help of a throwing error that might have been an inning-ending double play and a grand slam home run.  Garcia finished with three innings and 4 runs (3 ER) on 3 hits and a walk.

Reading (11-25) beat Hartford, 7-4. That’s 6 out of 7 for the Fightin’ Phils.

Hartford built an early 4-run lead.  Mark Appel started and gave up 4 runs in four innings on 6 hits and a walk.  He struck out four.  All four runs scored on the 3 home runs he served.  The bullpen responded with five innings of one-hit ball.  Tyler Carr pitched two innings, walked one, and struck out one.  Zach Warren got the win with one, one-hit inning striking out two.  Jake Hernandez earned his third save with two perfect innings and 5 strikeouts.

The Phils’ started their comeback with 2 runs in the fourth inning on Matt Vierling’s RBI triple and Jorge Bonifacio RBI single.  They closed within one in the sixth with a run on  Madison Stokes’ solo HR (2).  They took control in the seventh with 4 runs on Vierling’s RBI single and Bonifacio’s 3-run HR (6).

Vierling went 3-4 with 2 runs scored, a triple, and 2 RBI.  Bonifacio went 2-4 with a run scored, a HR (6), and 4 RBI.  Daniel Brito went 2-4 with a run scored and a double.  Dalton Guthrie went 2-4 with a double.

The BlueClaws took a brief lead with a run in the first inning on Logan O’Hoppe’s RBI single.  They took the lead back with 6 runs in the sixth inning on Jonathan Guzman’s bases-loaded walk, a fielding error, Herbert Iser’s 2-run double, Hunter Markwardt’s RBI single, and a wild pitch.  They tacked on a run in the seventh on Iser’s RBI single.  O’Hoppe went 2-5 with a run scored and an RBI.  Iser went 2-4 with a run scored, double, and 3 RBI.

  1. Vierling is certainly having a great year so far. He had good stretches in 2019 but not this good or for this long. Very encouraging and he’s certainly a new addition to the top 30 list.
