7/3/21 : Minor League Roundup - late game
Triple A East League - Lehigh Valley 4 ( 23-30 ) Trenton 0 ( 30-21 )
Spencer Howard finished off the dominant night of pitching in the Phillies system with a gem of his own in the second game of the evening for Lehigh Valley. The game didn’t begin till 10:15 PM … unfortunately I couldn’t stay awake to watch it 🤦♂️💤. Howard allowed just one hit and two walks over five innings. Teammates Mike Adams & Damon Jones finished it out.
The Iron Pigs scored all four runs in the fourth inning. Nick Maton walked, Matt Vierling was hit by a pitch. Ryan Cordell doubled to score Maton. Mickey Moniak doubled to score both Vierling & Cordell. Moniak stole third base and scored on a throwing error.
