Phillies’ Affiliates Recap (9/14/2022)

Here are today’s results.

Sorry, forgot there were games on Tuesday.  Both teams lost.

Lehigh Valley (72-64) lost to the Rochester Red Wings, 10-3.  A bullpen game.  Perkins, Marconi, and Rossman combined to pitch the first four innings and gave up 6 runs.  Braeden Ogle pitched a clean fifth.  Gomez ran into trouble and gave up a run in .01 innings.  Chris Devenski stranded an inherited runner and got two outs.  Vinny Nitoli pitched a clean eighth.  Francisco Morales had another tough outing, getting one out but giving up 3 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks.  Mike Kelley got the final two outs but allowed one of 3 inherited runners to score on a sac fly.

Munoz and Hall have been hitting at the top of the order to get more at bats in case they are needed in Philadelphia.  Munoz (.310) went 2-4 with a walk and triple.  Hall went 1-5 with a solo HR (26).  Bonifacio (.230) went 2-4 with a triple.

On Tuesday, Skirrow gave up 5 runs in five innings on 6 hits and 2 walks with 6 K.  Hennigan struck out 3 in a one-hit inning.  Miller struck out 2 in one inning but loaded the bases with a hit and 2 walks.  Devenski pitched a scoreless, one-walk inning.  Munoz and Hall each had a hit, Hall got his 25th HR.

Reading (59-75, 30-35) lost to the Altoona Curve, 8-0.  Hendrickson pitched 4.1 innings and gave up 3 runs (2 ER) on 2 hits and 3 walks with 6 K.  Baker allowed 2 of 2 inherited runners to score.  Zarbniskey gave up a run in one inning on 2 hits and a walk with 2 K.  Barber struck out two but gave up 4 runs on 4 hits and a walk in one inning.

Carlos De La Cruz (.289) had 2 of the Phils’ going 2-4.  Ortiz and Wilson each went 1-4.

On Tuesday, Lindow got a no-decision pitching six innings and giving up 4 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks.  McKay gave up 5 runs in an inning on 4 hits and a walk.  Schultz pitched a scoreless inning walking two and striking out two.  De La Cruz went 1-3 with a double and RBI.  Wilson went 2-3 with a double.


Ventured over to the Complex.  Watched infield and PFAs for about 3 hours in a steady drizzle.  It made it really comfortable as the heat and humidity were greatly diminished.  Here’s a list of participants.  There are rehabbers here, too.  Another, smaller group may join in a couple weeks as well as the AFL participants who generally get some swings and tosses in before going to Arizona.  Nobody invited has played above Low-A.

I think Romus posted a better view yesterday from the Phillies Player Development Twitter account.

  1. Don’t know the extent of Hoskins hand injury from last night, Hall is probably in Miami already just in case.

  2. Been following this site pretty religiously since ’08 although I never attended a minor league game while living in PA. Moved to Oregon back in 2015 and have been to watch the Hillsboro Hops a few times(since we don’t have an MLB team here). The first game that I attended was when the Hops were the short season low A affiliate of the diamondbacks. They are now the High A affiliate and I recently got to catch another game. It really opened my eyes to what a jump it is just from low A to high A. The players are significantly larger and more mature and the quality of baseball was notably better.

    Anyway, wanted to share that observation here. Thanks Jim for all of your hard work to keep this site running and for all of the first hand reports that you provide.

      1. PNW, I surely agree.

        After watching high A for a number of years I was impressed by the big drop off in talent, skill and maturity when the Phillies changed the Threshers to low A. As Murray says, sometimes looks a lot like high school.
