5/30/22 : Today in Extended Spring Training


The Phillies and Yankees met on Ashburn Field in a 10 AM contest. The two teams played to a 4-4 tie in the nine inning game.


Three pitchers on rehab assignments opened the contest and each threw a scoreless inning. Jo Jo Romero, Trevor Bettencourt and Rafael Marcano each struck out two batters. Romero and Bettencourt used big breaking hooks to get swings and misses.


Here are the “unofficial” pitching lines based solely on my notes.


Pitchers :


LH Jo Jo Romero - 1 IP, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K’s - good hook

RH Trevor Bettencourt - 1 perfect IP, 0 R, 0 H, 2 K’s big hook

LH Rafael Marcano - 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 2 K’s

RH Jayden Estanista - 1 2/3 IP, 2 R, 1 H ( 2B ), 4 BB, balk, 4 K’s - 1st frame rolled

LH Jared Wetherbee - 1 2/3 IP, 1 UE R, 0 H, 3 K’s

LH Christopher Soriano - 1 IP, 1 R, 2 H ( 2B,3B ), 0 BB, 3 K’s

LH Tristan Garnett - 1 IP, 0 R, 2 H ( 1 double ), 0 BB, 1 k

The Phillies pounded out 12 hits in the game. They entered the bottom of the ninth inning trailing by two runs but a clutch two out single by Adony Mejia tied the score as he drove in two across the plate.

Notes :


Former Phillies pitcher LH Joel Valdez pitched very well for the Yankees going 6 1/3 scoreless innings. He was traded to New York in the Donnie Sands/Nick Nelson deal.

The Canada Junior National Team is in the area and will play the Phillies extended spring squad tomorrow at 1 PM.
