Here's a rundown on how the Phillies' minor league teams fared on Tuesday, May 7:
Lehigh Valley IronPigs - Triple A
The IronPigs fell to the Louisville Bats, 6-4, at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown.
Recently-demoted catcher Humberto Quintero (1-for-2 with two walks) hit a solo home run in a two-run second inning for Lehigh Valley.
After the Bats tied the game in their half of the fourth inning, right fielder Steve Susdorf answered in the bottom half and put the IronPigs up with a two-run single.
However, the runs weren't enough. Starting pitcher B.J. Rosenberg struggled, allowing four runs on seven hits and five walks over six innings.
The bullpen couldn't limit the Bats either. J.C. Ramirez allowed one run in both the seventh and eighth innings to record the loss.
Darin Ruf went 1-for-2 with three walks, a strikeout and a run scored in the loss.
The loss dropped the IronPigs' record to 14-17.
Reading Fightin Phils - Double A
The Fightin Phils beat the Portland Sea Dogs, 5-1, at Hadlock Field in Portland.
Reading starter Hector Neris was solid to earn the victory, allowing one run and scattering four hits over six innings. The blemish was a result of a solo home run in the fourth inning. Neris struck out four.
The Fightin Phils' offense was powered by the long ball against the Sea Dogs.
Right fielder Derrick Mitchell (2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored) homered to put Reading on the scoreboard in the fourth inning.
First baseman Jim Murphy (1-for-4) ignited a two-out rally in the sixth inning with a solo home run to put the Fightin Phils ahead for good.
Reading improved to 13-17 on the season.
Clearwater Threshers - Class A-Advanced
The Threshers shut out the Palm Beach Cardinals, 3-0, at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Florida.
Left-hander Hoby Milner pitched seven shutout innings to earn his fourth victory of the season, giving up eight hits and a walk while striking out six. Relievers Ryan O'Sullivan and Colton Murray pitched two hitless innings to secure the shutout.
Clearwater was aided by sloppy defense to score two of their runs.
Center fielder Kyrell Hudson had the game's only RBI on a sacrifice fly in the third inning.
The win lifted the Threshers above .500 to 16-15 on the season.
Lakewood BlueClaws - Class A
The BlueClaws shut out the Lexington Legends, 1-0, at FirstEnergy Park in Lakewood.
Lakewood pitching held the Legends to three hits and two walks, all allowed by starter Nicholas Hanson over six innings, in the game. Delvi Francisco (two innings) and Steven Inch (one inning) combined for a perfect three innings.
The game's only run was scored in the seventh inning when catcher Chace Numata doubled in left fielder Larry Greene.
Greene went 1-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout in the win. He is hitting .157 in 31 at bats this season.
