    Chattanooga wins it in the botom of the 10th after coughing up a two-run lead.

    Connor Phillips had himself one whale of a game: 7 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 10 K. (That'll certainly help that BB rate.)
    Rece Hinds had two hits, including his 13th double. He also has 85 Ks on the season. Woof.

    Anyway, Chattanooga stays close in the Southern League playoff chase. One game back with just more than a dozen to go.

    Hinds has been running into a few lately but in watching him several times this year he's swinging at just about everything.

    Chase Petty went 4 innings again today. 48 pitches. As usual, he didn't allow any runs. He's now at a 0.45 ERA in 20 IP and five starts. He's allowed one ER and 13 H in those 20 IP, btw. 23:5 K:BB ratio as well.

    I am thinking respectfully about a Greene/Lodolo/Abbott/Ashcraft/Phillips rotation.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Think its fair to give him a shot at Chattanooga now, even though its only been 20 innings in Dayton given his obscene ERA and K/9. If they want to wait til the end of the month Im fine with that too.

    If Phillips has another start or two like tonight Id bump him and Marte (once he gets healthy and still hits) to Louisville.

    I've been impressed by Phillips since the first time I saw him pitch last year. I think he could end up as a really good #3 or even a #2 guy in the rotation. He's certainly on that trajectory right now as he'll likely see AAA this year at 22.

    Phillips is down to 3.98 BB/9 if I mathed correctly.

    That's still a little high, but it's head and shoulders better than last year's 5.4. Or 2021's 5.4.

    He's had 22 AA starts. I'd let him pitch through the last two turns before the AA season splits, then I'd call him up to Louisville. God knows, they need some help up there.

    Oh yeah I don’t mean right now or anything, more like in 2024.

    I agreed with you-- that wasn't clear in my post.

    Phillips giving Josh Beckett vibes with the high heat, curve ball, and goatee combo.

    Re: Midsummer Notes & Thoughts

    Ready for a ridiculously hot take?

    Yeycol Soriano has officially gotten my attention. The 17-year-old Dominican CF has now hit safely in all three DSL games. His BA is well over .500 this early in the season. More impressive to me are the three doubles he's hit. That likely means he's got some pop in his bat. (I can't say for sure-- haven't seen any video of him at all.) Duno, fwiw, is DH today. He hot HBP in the first. The DSL Reds trail, 3-0 in the 3rd.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Louisville plays early today. They hit against one of MLB's best prospects-- Gavin Williams.

    I'm excited to see the matchup with CES.

    Re: Midsummer Notes & Thoughts

    The most interesting man in the DSL, Yeycol Soriano is now 1-2 with a BB. He struck out for the first time, so he's probably a bum.

    Afredo Duno is 1-2 with a HBP. He's likely going to continue to hit .500 for the foreseeable future and is surely a Hall of Famer who might deserve to be called up in lieu of Tyler Stephenson. Who sucks.

    Re: Midsummer Notes & Thoughts

    It's not yet 1:00, yet your Louisville Bats already trail, 5-1 to the Columbus Clippers. Jacob Hurtubise, freshly up from Chattanooga, got a hit in his first official AB, then scored on a CES safety. Encarnacion-Strand is now hitting .353 with a 1.124 OPS. Not too shabby, that.

    CES is now 2-2 with 2 singles against Gavin Williams.

    He's up to .357 now.

    Call. Him. Up.
