Phillies’ Affiliates’ Recap (6/27/2021)

Lehigh Valley got thumped on two hits.  Reading blew two leads and lost in extras.  Jersey Shore won holding the opposition to two hits.  And, Clearwater got a solid start but had to win in a walk-off.

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.

Reading (18-30) lost to Binghamton, 10-8 in ten innings.  The Phils blew a 4th-inning 7-1 lead and a 7th inning 8-5 lead. Madison Stokes went 2-5 with 2 HRs (6) and 4 RBI.  Rodolfo Duran and Arquimedes Gamboa had 2-hit games.  Duran(3) and Gamboa (4) each hit solo HRs.  Bryson Stott (.294) went 1-5.  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.

Jersey Shore (20-27) beat Brooklyn, 3-0.  DominicPipkin tossed a season-high five, two-hit, shutout innings.  He struck out five.  Manuel Silva, Tyler Burch, and Blake Brown each tossed a no-hit inning.  Silva struck out 4 of 5 the batters he faced.  Brown got his third save.  Nate Fassnacht went 2-4 with a triple and 2 RBI.  Logan O’Hoppe had a sac fly.  Jhailyn Ortiz went 2-4.  DJ Stewart went 2-4 with a double.  Casey Martin went 1-3 with a double.  Herbert Iser also had a double.  Ortozstole his 4th base, Martin his 1st.

Clearwater (25-23) beat Daytona 4-3 in 10 innings.  Victor Vargas pitched five innings of one-run ball.  He gave up 3 hits and a walk and struck out three.  Eduar Sewgovia struck out four in 2.2 innings, but walked 3 and gave up a save-blowing 2 runs.  Leonel Aponte walked 2 in 1.2 no-hit innings.  Gabriel Yanez got the final two outs and the win.  Aponte stranded 3 inherited runners, Yanez two.  Simmons had an RBI double in the third inning and scored on a balk.  Rixon Wingrove added a run on a sixth-inning solo HR.  The Threshers walked off on Abrahan Gutierrez’ RBI single in the tenth.  Luis Garcia, Jose Tortolero, and Nicolas Torres each had 2 hits.  Luis Garcia added a triple to the XBH total.  Yhoswar Garcia went 0-5 but reached on a force out and stole second (9) and third (10).

FCL Phillies season starts Monday (6/28) and runs thru 9/12.  FCL Phillies first game is at Blue Jays on Monday.  They are home against Tigers West on Tuesday and Yankees on Wednesday.

DSL Phillies Red and DSL Phillies White seasons run 7/12 thru 10/2.

  1. When will the system allow pitchers to stretch out to at least 85 pitches. Seems like we are building a squad of 4-5 inning pitchers.

    1. Denny…I guess the question to ask is….are the Phillies unique in that regards, or are many other teams doing the same.

      In professional sports…..majority of time there is that ‘copy-cat’ scenario…sometimes it is refreshing to see one organization break the mold and do something different , like Cash did with the Rays when using an ‘opener’

    2. It could be a combination of factors. After losing a year of minor league ball, it’s possible that the Phillies are taking it real slow with pitchers. Or that with so many pitchers, it’s hard to give everybody a lot of innings. Usually you want to make sure that a pitcher can’t make it as a starter before he gets converted to a starter. For us, it’s easy to see that Mick Abel is sticking around as a starter. But for the other pitchers, we’re not sure. Right now, I’m not even sure what the goal is for Cristopher Sanchez (starter or reliever).

  2. Morales is finally coming around …last two starts have been what was expected….10 innings, 6 hits, 17-Ks, 3-BBs, 2 earned runs.

    1. Pipkin with a nice outing, fingers crossed he was 92-97 and more or less dominated. He’s only 21, high upside guy with reliever risk is what I’ve heard

    1. International scouting as an Italian, Chinese and Russian all pitched. Wonder if we will ever see that French kid Antonac pitch.

      1. Kuznetsov with the save…… would think that was a hockey game and he was the goalie.
