Lehigh Valley (53-67) lost to Buffalo, 5-4 in ten innings. In true Phillies fashion, the bullpen blew a 4-2 lead in the bottom of the ninth inning, then gave up the winning run in the tenth when the offense couldn’t score in the top half of the extra inning.
Jack Perkins went five innings and was the pitcher of record until the ninth. He gave up 2 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks. Mike Adams struck out two in one inning. As did Seranthony Dominguez. SD needed just 12 pitches and threw 9 strikes. Jeff Singer struck out one in one inning. JD Hammer blew the save by giving up 2 runs on 2 hits and 2 walks in the ninth. Damon Jones lost the game by immediately loading the bases with a hit batter and a walk. He got an out via strikeout but surrendered the run on a base hit. Hammer and Jones are still pitching like they are under the gaze of Girardi.
Lehigh Valley took the lead with a run in the second inning on a ground out. They retook the lead in the sixth with 2 runs on solo HRs by Adam Haseley and Jorge Bonifacio. They scored an insurance run in the top of the ninth on an RBI single by Rafael Marchan. In the tenth, Dalton Guthrie successfully sacrificed the ghost runner to third. But, Haseley grounded out to first and Alec Bohm struck out.
Haseley went 1-4 with a walk. Bohm went 1-5 with 2 K. Mickey Moniak went 0-3 with a walk. Bryson Stott went 1-3 with a walk. Marchan went 1-2 with 2 walks and an RBI. Simon Muzziotti went 0-3.
