Heathcott’s big night goes for naught in loss

By

Myron Leslie was released today, allowing Dellin Betances to come off the disabled list. There just wasn’t enough room for the guy in the organization.

The Triple-A Scranton box score isn’t updating for whatever reason, so I have no idea what’s going on. I do know this much: Andrew Brackman allowed three hits and three runs in six innings. He struck out seven and walked (ugh) five. Andy Sisco and Eric Wordekemper also pitched.

Double-A Trenton (6-2 win over New Hampshire)
Austin Krum, LF: 1 for 3, 2 R, 1 BB, 1 K
Dan Brewer, DH: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 3B, 1 RBI
Austin Romine, C: 4 for 4, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 PB – 15 for his last 34 (.441)
Bradley Suttle, 3B, Jose Pirela, SS & Jack Rye, 1B: all 0 for 3 – Pirela struck out once, Suttle twice, Rye thrice … Suttle also got hit by a pitch while Pirela walked and drove in a run
Melky Mesa, CF: 0 for 4, 1 K, 1 CS, 1 E (fielding) – just two for his last 30 (.067) with 12 strikeouts
Corban Joseph, 2B: 1 for 3, 2 RBI, 1 K
Ray Kruml, RF: 0 for 2, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 SB
Dellin Betances, RHP: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 1 WP, 5-1 GB/FB – first start since the blister, and I assume he was on some kind of pitch count
Naoya Okamoto, LHP: 2.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 2 WP, 3-2 GB/FB
Tim Norton, RHP: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 2-1 GB/FB – 16-4 K/BB in 10.2 IP
Fernando Hernandez, RHP: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 1-0 GB/FB

Abe Almonte, CF: 1 for 4, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K
Walt Ibarra, 2B & Taylor Grote, 2B: both 0 for 4 – Ibarra whiffed twice, Grote once
Rob Lyerly, 3B, Zoilo Almonte, LF & Kevin Mahoney, 1B: all 0 for 3, 1 BB – Lyerly struck out once, the other two guys twice each .. Almonte also stole a base
Mitch Abeita, C, DeAngelo Mack, DH & Emerson Landoni, SS: all 1 for 3 – Abeita walked and got caught stealing … Mack hit a solo homer and struck out … Landoni scored a run and struck out
Scottie Allen, RHP: 2 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 2-1 GB/FB - well, at least he’s starting
Kelvin Perez, RHP: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 1 HB, 1-4 GB/FB
Chase Whitley, RHP: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 4-1 GB/FB – 18-2 K/BB with 19-9 GB/FB in 15.2 IP
Ryan Flannery, RHP: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 1-0 GB/FB

Low-A Charleston (13-9 loss to Lakewood)
Slade Heathcott, CF: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 BB – five straight games with a double … he’s 12 for his last 25 (.480) with six doubles, six walks, and three strikeouts

    Charleston relies too much on not hitting home runs.

    Or something.

    /searching for a narrative’d

  2. jeety says:

    Heathcott sure seems to want to be in tampa asap… last 2 weeks or so have been nearly flawless.

  3. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Romine alone should fetch a nice prize during the deadline…

  4. mbonzo says:

    Austin Romine… Holy S*&^

  5. mbonzo says:

    Andrew Brackman 6 IP, 3Ks, 5H

  6. S says:

    Slade is just embarrassing opposing pitchers now, just promote him to Tampa already

  7. Sanchez is really racking up those K’s, huh?

    • Slugger27 says:

      its been pretty rough ever since he left the GCL

    • Samuel says:

      Sanchez needs lots of work in the batting cage. Swing is way too long and he has no balance.

      However, Slade is a different story.

      He had two rocket doubles tonight into the right field corner, but most impressive at bat was the one when he walked. On 2-2 count, he stayed off two straight pitches a little out of the zone.

      Last year he would have gone after one or both and whiffed.

      Murphy was 0-4, but hit the ball hard to the wall three times and just missed a double down the LF line. It was called foul but looked like it was fair. On next pitch he walked on 3-2 count.

    El Destructor Vazquez also took Peavey deep. A bomb off of the scoreboard!!!!

  9. dennis says:

    sanchez is stra-ga-ling. looks like we got spoiled by last year. staten island should help him gain some confidence.

  10. Xstar7 says:

    Will Slade be the subject of the prospect watch next year? At this point he’s a good candidate.

  11. mbonzo says:

    Box score is up for AAA.

  12. tags says:

    Was at the Trenton game last night. Betances looked very impressive, throwing hard. He was definatly on a pitch count because he was cruising. Romine is killing the ball. Every hit was hard, he looks much more relax than when I sae him opening night.
