The top teams went 0-4. Clearwater also almost lost two players in a deadline deal. Still might. Abel didn’t pitch last night on his turn. Lozano did. He’s either two before or two after Abel. I’ve no idea when he pitches again. Hope it’s not Wednesday.
I’ve got to get up early, so this is going to be short and sweet. Six more entries on the 60-day IL.
Lehigh Valley (32-41) lost to Rochester, 5-3. Adonis Medina (5.48) made his first start since June 26th and pitched two innings allowing one hit and striking out three. Darick Hall (.207) went 2-4 with an RBI. Matt Vierling (.198) went 1-4 with an RBI. New catcher Rodolfo Duran went 0-4. Daniel Brito (.381) went 1-4 with an RBI.
Reading (29-44) lost to Somerset, 5-4. Reassigned Rafael Marchan went 1-5 with a double. Bryson Stott (.261) went 1-4. Luke Miller (.208) went 2-4 with a 2-run HR (11). Kyle Dohy pitched 1.1 innings, stranded 2 inherited runners, walked one, and struck out four.
Jersey Shore (32-41) lost to Brooklyn, 14-5. Jhailyn Ortiz (.264) went 2-4 with a double and his 19th HR.
Clearwater (35-37) lost to Fort Myers, 7-1. Casey Martin (.271) is back and went 0-4 from the leadoff spot. The patchwork lineup collected three hits and scored their run on a fielding error. (Note: Johan Rojas was placed on the 60-day IL.)
FCL Phillies (10-6) beat FCL Blue Jays, 6-1. Gabriel Cotto (2-0, 0.00) pitched extremely well. He tossed five, scoreless innings allowing 2 hits and 4 walks while striking out ten. The Blue Jays’ batters couldn’t catch up to his fastball and consistently swung over his offspeed stuff. Three of his four walks came when he had to pitch from the stretch. The first two were four-pitch walks. But, then he would settle down, kind of like he needed a batter to adjust to pitching from the stretch. Edward Barboza (.318) went 2-4 with 2 runs scored and a triple. Felix Reyes (.267) went 2-3 with a double and 2 RBI.
DSL Phillies Red (3-7) lost to DSL Mets1, 8-1.
DSL Phillies White (6-4) beat DSL Mets2, 8-7 in eight innings.
