I’m not even sure where to start with David Phelps’ performance. He took dominant to a new level yesterday, allowing just one hit and one walk in 6.2 innings pitched. He also had eleven strikeouts on the game! Even more impressive was that Phelps and relief pitcher Danny Farquhar combined to retire the last 25 batters that Portland sent to the plate. The way Phelps pitched today, he’ll be back in the Major Leagues very soon, possibly as soon as right after the All-Star Break – and I’m sure the Eastern League hitters can’t wait to see him go. Offensively, Rob Segedin had his first career hit at the Double-A level, and did so in style with a seventh inning home run to left field. Jose Pirela also had himself quite a day out of the leadoff spot, homering in his first two at-bats.

High-A: Tampa Yankees
Tampa’s game against Dunedin was called with the Yankees up 4-1 after just five innings of play due to lightning. Matt Tracy had been on the mound for Tampa, and threw a five inning “complete” game, allowing one run on three hits and four walks while striking out eight. The outing was good for Tracy’s third win of the season. Ramon Flores led the team offensively as he raised his season batting average to .302 with a 3-for-3 performance. Flores was just a triple shy of the cycle. Kyle Higashioka brought home a pair of runs in the fourth inning with the Yankees only other hit on the day – a two-run home run which also scored Anderson Feliz.
