Here are today’s results.
Lehigh Valley (47-41) beat the Charlotte Knights, 7-3. Rehabbing Nick Maton had a hit, 2 walks, and 2 runs scored leading off. Chris Sharpe had 3 hits, 2 doubles, and an RBI. Michael Plassmeyer had another solid start pitching five innings allowing one run on 4 hits (one a solo HR), no walks, and 4 strikeouts. Rehabbing Ryan Sherriff pitched one inning and gave up one run on a hit and 2 walks.
Reading (38-46, 9-6) lost to the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, 1-0. Rehabbing Johan Camargo had 3 hits including a double. Jhailyn Ortiz had 3 hits including a double and a walk. Connor Eastman pitched six, one-run innings. He gave up 4 hits, walked 4, and struck out four. Trevor Bettencourt pitched two scoreless innings allowing 2 hits and striking out two. Francisco Morales struck out 2 of the 3 batters he faced.
Jersey Shore (29-54, 4-13) beat the Aberdeen IronBirds, 4-3. Ethan Wilson had 2 hits, an RBI, and his 23rd stolen base. Erubiel Armenta pitched two scoreless, one-hit innings striking out three for the win. Jonathan Hughes picked up his 4th save. Mick Abel pitched six innings for the 5th time this season and 5th time in his last 6 games. Last night, he gave up 3 runs on 4 hits and 2 walks with 7 strikeouts. He threw 104 pitches. I know some of you are worried about his stat line. I suggest that Abel is developing along a strategy that will pay dividends later in his career. The staff has him pitching backwards, forwards, sideways, relying less on his over-powering fastball, throwing his secondaries when in trouble rather than his fastball, etc. The object is to gain confidence in his secondaries. You may not like the results, and the other teams can see pitching patterns, but when Abel is unfettered by “development pitching”, he should have the confidence to throw his secondaries at any time and opponents won’t know the fastball is back on the menu.
Clearwater (40-44, 5-14) dropped two to the Fort Myers Mighty Mussels, 6-1 and 7-4. Andrick Nava had 2 of the team’s 4 hits in game one. In game two, Kendall Simmons had 2 hits, a double, and 2 RBI. Gunner Mayer pitched two shutout innings in relief walking 2 and striking out three.
FCL Phillies (10-17) lost to the FCL Tigers, 3-2. RHP Jose Pena, Jr. took a line drive off his head in the fourth inning that deflected into left field. He was removed from the game “due to an injured head”. No follow-up yet. He had pitched 3.1 scoreless innings allowing 2 hits, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. DH Rickardo Perez had 2 hits including his first HR. Rehabbing Lee Hao Yu had 2 hits including a HR.
DSL Phillies Red (18-10) v. the DSL KC Stewart was suspended in the bottom of the second with no score.
DSL Phillies White (17-11) beat the DSL Rockies, 16-2. Raylin Heredia had 4 hits, a double, 2 triples, and 4 RBI. Manolfi Jimenez had 4 hits, a double, and an RBI. Javier Fuenmayor earned his first win entering in the second inning and stranding 3 inherited runners. He went on to pitch a total of 4.1 innings retiring all 13 batters he faced.
