Phillies Affiliates’ Recap (5/12/2022)

The Phillies’ affiliates went 3-1 last night.  Lehigh Valley used seven pitchers in a relatively easy win.  Reading coasted to a big win.  Jersey Shore couldn’t overcome three early home runs.  And, Clearwater handled their opponent with the debut of a 2021 award winner.

Clearwater (15-12) beat the Daytona Tortugas, 4-2.

2021 Paul Owens Award winner, Jean Cabrera made his 2022 debut last night and tossed four innings of 2-hit ball.  He allowed one run, walked none, and struck out six.  He threw mostly fastballs and curveballs.  His FB sat 92-93, touching 94 mph.  His CB was 79-81 with 4 feet of vertical break.  Eiberson Castellano (1-0, 0.00) pitched three shutout innings folding the Tortugas to one hit while striking out four.  Tommy McCollum (2,92) pitched 1.2 innings and gave up one run on one hit and 2 walks.  Konnor Ash (0.00) earned his second save striking out the only batter he faced.

The Threshers opened the scoring with 2 runs in the first inning on an RBI double by Lee Hao Yu and a groundout by Jadiel Sanchez.  They added a run in the second on an RBI single by Alexeis Azuaje.  They added an insurance run in the sixth on Lee Hao Yu’s solo HR (2).

Lee (.296) went 2-4 with 2 runs scored, a double, HR, and 2 RBI.  Marcus Lee Sang (.282) went 2-4 and a stolen base.  Anthony Quirion went 2-3 with a run scored.

Lehigh Valley (18-15) beat the Buffalo Bison, 6-2.

Bullpen game.  Corey Oswalt (0.00) went 2.0 IP, 1 BB, 1 K.  Cristopher Sanchez (1-0, 9.00) went 2.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 1 K.  (This is why wins as a stat are BS.)  Kyle Dohy (4.15) went 1.0 IP, 2 H, 1 K.  Mike Adams (0.00) went 1.0 IP, 1 H, 1 BB.  Jake Hernandez (6.75) went 1.0 IP, 2 K.  Nick Duron (2.19) went 1.0 IP, 1 K.  Braeden Ogle (6.10) went 1.0 IP.

The IronPigs scored 3 runs in the first inning on a 3-run HR by Darick Hall (11).  After the Bison scored two runs, the ‘Pigs scored twice in the fifth on a 2-run single by Nick Maton.  They tacked on an insurance run in the sixth on an RBI single by Austin Wynns.

Wynns (.404) went 3-4 with a run scored and RBI.  Hall (.285) went 2-4 with 2 runs scored, a HR, and 3 RBI.

Dalton Guthrie had an outfield assist at first.  Wynns picked a runner off third.

Reading (13-17) beat the Bowie Baysox, 11-6.

Eric Miller (1.93) pitched two innings and gave up one run on 0 hits and 2 walks.  He struck out one.  He threw 42 pitches.  (I wouldn’t worry about his IP or pitches thrown.  I believe he is “rehabbing” in game action.  If they had enough starters, I think he might enter games from the bullpen.  He seems to have settled into an appearance every sixth day as they rebuild his arm strength for an eventual return to the rotation next season.)  Ethan Evanko (0.00) made his first appearance this season.  He pitched three innings and gave up an unearned run on 2 hits and 3 walks.  He struck out five.  Braden Zarbnisky (3.86) gave up 4 runs in two innings on 4 hits and a walk.  He struck out three.  Bubby Rossman (5.52) struck out one in one scoreless inning.  Brian Marconi (3.00) did the same.

After spotting the Baysox a 2-run lead, the GFightin Phils scored 5 runs in the third inning on a 2-run single by Aldrem Corredor, an RBI double by Logan O’Hoppe, and a 2-run single by Jack Conley.  They pushed across 2 more runs in the fifth on a 2-run HR by Josh Ockimey.  And blew the game open in the sixth on a grand slam by Jhailyn Ortiz.  The big lead helped withstand 4 late runs by the Sox.

Ali Castillo went 3-5 with 2 runs scored.  Jhailyn Ortiz (.245) went 3-4 with 3 runs scored, a double, HR (6), walk, and 4 RBI.  Jack Conley went 3-4 with a double and 2 RBI.

Jersey Shore (10-18) lost to the Bowling Green Hot Rods, 6-5.

Cristian Hernandez (1-1, 6.98) pitched five innings and gave up all 6 runs on 7 hits and a hit batter.  He walked none and struck out four.  All 6 runs scored on the 3 HRs he allowed, one each in the second, third, and fourth innings.  Carlo Reyes (7.94), Tyler McKay (3.97), and Jonathan Hughes (1.08) each tossed a scoreless inning allowing one hit and walking none.

The BlueClaws opened the scoring in the top of the first with 2 runs on a sac fly by Casey Martin and an RBI single by McCarthy Tatum.  They closed within a run with 3 runs in the sixth on a 2-run HR by Tatum (2) and an RBI triple by Andrick Nava.  But, after a leadoff single by Carlos De La Cruz in the seventh, the BlueClaws were retired nine batters in a row.

Johan Rojas went 2-4 with 2 runs scored and 2 stolen bases (18).  Tatum went 2-4 with a run scored, HR, and 3 RBI.  Ethan Wilson stole his twelfth base.

Hernandez picked a runner off first base.

Neither team walked a batter.
