There were three games on Thursday. All losses. Lehigh Valley lost big but Bailey Falter had a successful first rehab. Reading got blown out and Seranthony Dominguez didn’t respond well to a couple bad breaks. Jersey Shore lost. The FCL Phillies weren’t scheduled, but there’s a rumor that they may play Friday on the road. Both DSL teams were rained out.
The Phillies posted some team photos from their affiliates in support of Daniel Brito. All the players are wearing shirts that say “Brito Strong”. These are the team photos from Lehigh Valley, Reading, Jersey Shore, Clearwater, and the Complex
That’s a lot of staff, players, and rehabbers at the Complex. And if you know where to look, you’ll even see Simon Muzziotti.
Lehigh Valley (39-45) lost to Scranton, 10-3, in a rain-shortened 7.5 innings. David Parkinson (1-8, 7.00) pitched two innings and gave up 7 runs on 9 hits and a walk. Jake Hernandez (6.23) let an inherited runner score and pitched two, one-run innings on 2 hits and 4 strikeouts. Bailey Falter made his first rehab appearance and went one inning. He gave up a hit, struck out two, threw 20 pitches, 12 for strikes. Brady Lail (10.03) gave up another 2 runs in two innings on 3 hits and a walk. He struck out four. Every pitcher but Falter was tagged for a HR.
The IronPigs scored 2 runs in the third inning on a sac fly by TJ Rivera and a wild pitch. They added a run in the seventh on an RBI single by Rivera. Jorge Bonaficio (.350) went 2-3 with a walk. Matt Vierling (.238) went 1-3 with a walk. Rafael Marchan (.198) went 0-5. Arquimedes Gamboa (.400) went 1-3.
Reading (33-53) lost to Akron, 12-0. Jack Perkins (3-2, 4.23) pitched 2.2 innings and gave up 5 runs on 4 hits and 2 walks. Zach Warren (2.29) stranded an inherited runner and pitched 1.1 innings allowing one hit and 2 walks. Seranthony Dominguez (54.00) made his first rehab appearance. He gave up a leadoff double and two ground outs that moved the runner to third base. He got the next batter on a strikeout but a wild pitch on the third strike allowed the batter to reach first and the runner on third to score. (I read from apologists on social media that the double was misplayed by the center fielder and the wild pitch was a passed ball.) Anyway, Dominguez gave up home runs on back to back pitches and was lifted after going 0.2 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 2 HR, 1 WP. Carlo Reyes (2.89) pitched three innings and gave up 3 runs on 5 hits. He struck out two and gave up two HR. Kyle Dohy (2.49) stranded an inherited runner and pitched 1.1 perfect innings striking out two.
Jhaillyn Ortiz (.243) went 1-3 with an HBP. Bryson Stott (.263) went 1-4. The Phils struck out 15 times.
Jersey Shore (38-48) lost to Hudson Valley, 8-4. Ethan Lindow (3-6, 3.10) pitched 5.2 innings and gave up 6 runs on 6 hits and a walk. He gave up 2 HR and struck out seven. Jonas De La Cruz (15.75) stranded two runners. He pitched two innings and gave up 2 runs on 4 hits and a walk. He struck out five. Mark Potter (10.35) came in with the bases loaded and struck out the only batter he faced.
The BlueClaws scored a game-tying run in the second inning on an RBI single by Cole Stobbe. They scored 2 runs in the seventh inning on a 2-run single by Logan O’Hoppe. They pulled within two runs of the Renegades with a run in the eighth on a solo HR by Cole Stobbe (4). Vito Friscia (.265) went 2-5.
O’Hoppe (.268) went 1-5 with 2 RBI. DJ Stewart (.246) went 1-5. Stobbe (.127) went 2-3 with a HR and 2 RBI.
Clearwater (39-41) postponed, rain. Makeup on August 13th.
FCL Phillies (10-6) no game scheduled.
DSL Phillies Red (10-10) and DSL Phillies White (12-7) both postponed, rain. Makeups on the 13th.
