Lehigh Valley lost the series finale and settled for a split of their 6-game series. Reading won Sunday to avoid a sweep. But, Jersey Shore and Clearwater could not avoid the broom. Matt Kroon, who left Saturday’s game with an apparent injury in the first inning after a failed steal attempt, was placed on the IL on Sunday by Reading.
Clearwater (0-3) lost to Fort Myers, 6-3. link
The Threshers fell behind and rallied to make a game of it. But, 3 unearned runs sealed their fate. They got solid pitching from Alex Garbrick (4 Ks in 2.0 innings, though 3 BB) and Rodolfo Sanchez (struck out the side in the ninth). Arturo De Freitas went 3-4 with 2 runs, an RBI, a double, and a HR. Jamari reached on a walk and HBP and stole two bases.
Lehigh Valley (3-3) lost to Columbus, 12-1. link
Nothing to see here. Guthrie got a hit and is batting .429. Darick Hall (.300) is the only other starter over .200. John Andreoli picked up an outfield assist at third base, his second I believe.
Reading (1-2) beat Somerset, 5-3. link
The Fightin Phis overcame a 3-run deficit with home runs in the seventh, eighth, and walked off in the ninth to record their first win of the season. Jonathan Guzman stroked a 2-run HR, Jhailyn Ortiz lashed a solo HR, and Wendell topped it all with a 2-run shot.
The bullpen performed admirably receiving a stellar performance from Francisco Morales who retired all six batters he faced while striking out three.
Jersey Shore (0-3) lost to Aberdeen, 8-4. link
McGowan and Mezquita pitched well thru six innings, allowing just one run. But the bullpen couldn’t sustain the lead. Aberdeen pushed 4 runs across in the seventh to take a 5-3 lead and cruised to the victory.
Johan Rojas had 2 hits in 5 at bats and stole 2 more bases (5). The team has 14 in 3 games.
