There was a lot of good pitching last night. Three Lehigh Valley pitchers combined in a one-hit victory. Reading had the rest of their final homestand cancelled. Jersey Shore won on a 3-hitter as two Reading pitchers dropped down to get their work in. Luis Garcia had a productive game. Clearwater romped to a one-sided victory. Jared Carr had himself a night. The FCL Phillies weren’t scheduled. And, the DSL teams went 1-1 with Red winning a low-scoring game.
Lehigh Valley (49-60) beat Worcester, 6-0 on one hit. Cristopher Sanchez pitched five one-hit innings, walked four, and struck out seven. Mauricio Llovera pitched three innings and walked one, hit a batter, and struck out three. Kyle Dohy pitched one inning, walked one, and struck out the side.
The IronPigs scored 2 runs in the third inning on a 2-run HR by Matt Joyce. They added 2 runs in the sixth on a force out by Arquimedes Gamboa and an RBI single by Charlie Tilson. They continued to tack on runs – one in the seventh on a passed ball and one in the eighth on a Charlie Tilson ground out.
Luke Williams went 0-5. Andrew Knapp went 1-3 with 2 walks. Matt Joyce went 1-5 with the HR and 2 RBI. Jorge Bonifacio went 2-4 with a double and walk. Nick Maton went 0-3 with a walk.
Reading (44-64) cancelled, as was the rest of the homestand due to COVID tracing of the New Hampshire squad.
Jersey Shore (51-59) beat Greensboro, 6-0 on 3 hits. Tyler Phillips pitched three scoreless innings allowing 2 hits, a walk, and striking out one batter. Carlos Francisco pitched two scoreless innings and allowed no hits, no walks, and struck out two. James McArthur pitched four innings gave up a hit, walked one, struck out five, and picked up the save.
The BlueClaws scored 2 runs in the fourth inning on a 2-run HR by Luis Garcia. They added a run in the fifth on an RBI single by Johan Rojas. They capped the scoring with 3 runs in the seventh on an RBI single by Simon Muzziotti and a 2-run double by Garcia.
Johan Rojas went 1-3 with an RBI and SB. Simon Muzziotti swent 2-4 with an RBI. Luis Garcia went 2-3 with a double, HR, walk, and 4 RBI.
Clearwater (49-59) got a measure of revenge with an 18-4 stomping of Bradenton. Jared Carr went 5-5 with a walk, double, and 4 RBI.
Rodolfo Sanchez pitched three innings and gave up 3 first-inning runs on 4 hits and 2 walks. He struck out three and gave up a HR. Alex McKenney pitched 3.2 innings and gave up one unearned run on 2 hits and 3 walks. He struck out three. Maikel Garrido stranded two inherited runners and pitched 2.1 innings allowing a hit and 3 walks while striking out two.
After spotting the Marauders a 3-run lead in the first inning, the Threshers put up a crooked number in each of the home second, third, and fourth innings. They scored 5 two-out runs in the second on a bases-loaded walk by Ethan Wilson, and 2-run singles by Kendall Simmons and Jared Carr. They scored 5 more runs in the third on Jamari Baylor’s fielder’s choice, a wild pitch, a 2-run double by Wilson, and an RBI single by Carr. They tacked on 4 runs in the fourth on an RBI single by TJ Rumfield, a force out by Chris Burke, a throwing error, and an RBI double by Carr. An odd yet interesting note here, poor Casey Martin made the third out in each of the first four innings. They added a run in the fifth on an RBI double by Burke. They closed out the scoring with 3 runs in the eighth on Casey Martin’s 3-run HR. (Note that this was Martin’s first game since coming off the IL.)
Everybody had at least one hit except Felix Reyes who was hit by a pitch in the second inning and replaced by Baron Radcliff who went 2-4 with a double. Chris Burke went 2-5 with a double and 2 RBI.
FCL Phillies (22-12) had no game scheduled.
DSL Phillies Red (24-18) beat the DSL Angels, 2-1. Rickardo Perez went 0-2 with a walk.
