8/27/21 : FCL and DSL Today
Florida Complex League :
The Yankees bussed over the causeway to meet the Phillies in a noon ballgame at Carpenter Complex on Roberts Field. We watched from beyond the center field fence today alongside photographer Mark Wylie … will post his photos later after he’s had a chance to edit them.
Phillies 4 ( 18-10 ) Yankees 3 ( 26-13 ) - seven innings
The Phillies scored a run in the first inning on back to back doubles by Marcus Lee Sang & Jamari Baylor. They added another in the second as Junior Ortega singled, stole second, went to third on a ground out and scored on a wild pitch.
Two runs crossed the plate in the fifth inning on a Dalton Guthrie home run over the left field fence.
The Yankees scored a run in the sixth on a couple walks and groundouts. They added two in the seventh on an error, double, ground out and wild pitch. Jake McKenna came into the game and closed the door by striking out the only two batters he faced, one on an inherited count.
On the Hill :
RH Ben Brown - 1 perfect IP - very efficient - three grounds - less than ten pitches
LH Jordan Fowler - pro debut - first W - 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 1 K
RH Gunner Mayer - 2 Perfect IP - 4 K’s
RH DJ Jefferson - 2 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 2 BB, 1 K
RH Yoan Antonac - 1/3 IP, 2 R - 1 earned, 1 H, 0 BB, 0 K’s
LH Jake McKenna - 2/3 IP, 2 K’s - retired both batters he faced
At the Plate : 6 hits, 3 walks 5 strikeouts
Dalton Guthrie hit a two run home run. Marcus Lee Sang & Jamari Baylor each doubled.
It was speculated in one of the Philly papers that first round pick Andrew Painter would make his pro debut today however that won’t occur till next week. The young right hander hasn’t pitched since May and the club wanted to give him another week of bullpen sessions before he appears in his first game.
