The Phillies promoted a few players and released four. But, that served as little motivation as the four stateside affiliates went one and three last night. Lehigh Valley played close but could never pull even. Reading blew a 3-run lead in the bottom of the ninth. Jersey Shore tied the game twice but could never forge ahead. And, Clearwater blew their close game open with a 5-run inning.
The FCL Phillies’ game was canceled because of expected bad weather. The DSL Phillies Red lost. And the DSL Phillies White won on a two-hitter.
