Lehigh Valley (21-27) lost to Scranton, 19-1. Darick Hall’s RBI single scored Didi Gregorius with a first-inning run. It was the only lead and one of only two hits by the IronPigs. Matt Vierling had the other. None of the pitchers had a particularly good day. They gave up 10-run and 6-run innings. Even the guys who weren’t charged with any runs had warts. Mike Adams allowed 2 inherited runners to score in 0.1 innings and Bryan Mitchell allowed the last 3 of 23 hits the staff gave up. Ugly game.

Morales lasted 4.2 innings and gave up 5 runs on 2 hits, 2 walks, a hit batter, and a wild pitch. Only one run was earned because he gave up a HR after Bryson Stott’s second error of the game. Oh, the two other base runners who scored that inning reached via base on balls. So, there’s that. Kyle Dohy pitched well. Braden Zarbniskey (3 runs, blew the save) and Austin Ross (2-run HR, loss), not so much.
