8/26/21 : FCL and DSL Today
Florida Complex League :
The Phillies and Tigers West played a morning game today ( moved up from noon due to pending inclement weather ) at Carpenter Complex on Roberts Field. I stopped by the complex but didn’t venture in.
Phillies 6 ( 17-10 ) Tigers West 4 ( 12-25 )
The Tigers scored a first inning run on a Corey Joyce home run. The Phillies answered back in the bottom of the inning when Kendall Simmons doubled to score Dalton Guthrie ( walked ).
The Phillies scored twice in the second frame highlighted by a double off the bat of Gavin Tonkel.
Corey Joyce hit his second home run of the game for the Tigers in the third. The Phillies scored three in the inning with two crossing the plate on an Alexeis Azuaje home run.
Eduardo Valencia hit a two run home run for the Tigers in the fourth.
On the Hill :
RH Cristian Hernandez - 2 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 3 K’s
RH Wilson Gherbez - 2 IP, 3 R, 3 H, 2 BB, 1 K
LH Rafael Marcano - 2 perfect IP - 1 K
RH Rodolfo Sanchez - 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 0 K’s
LH Jaylen Smith - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 BB, 1 K
At the Plate : 10 hits, 3 walks, 8 strikeouts
Alexeis Azuaje had three hits including a double and home run, scored twice and had two RBIs. Gavin Tonkel had two hits including a double, scored twice and had an RBI. Marcus Lee Sang and Kendall Simmons each doubled.
As I left I saw 2021 4th round draft pick RHP Micah Ottenbriet throwing live BP on Ashburn Field, didn’t stay to watch though. RHP Andrew Painter ( 2021 1st round pick ) is scheduled to pitch tomorrow at Carpenter Complex against the Yankees.
Dalton Guthrie was in the lineup at second base on rehab assignment from Lehigh Valley. He walked in two plate appearances and played three innings in the field. It was Dalton’s first game action since he went on the IL on July 28th. The rehab schedule for position players is generally a three inning stint for first game back, six innings in second game and then a full nine before moving up a notch or back into regular action. Good to see Dalton back on the field.
