Phils get past Miners for 10th time, 5-1

I'm working at home, so had the Phillies game on the computer while working on a project, so here's a re-cap of the contest.

Great broadcast, but still not as good as my main man Andy Santillo ;-)

The Saratoga Phillies made it 10-straight wins over the Little Falls Miners Thursday with a 5-1 win on the road at Veterans Memorial Park.

William and Mary left-hander Pete Vernon earned his first win with the Saratoga Phillies, allowing only one run over six innings of work. He allowed eight hits, walked one batter and struck out four. He would turn the ball over to relievers Brad Grove (Virginia) for two innings and Mark Lamm (Vanderbilt) for the ninth and held the Miners scoreless.

The win ends a two-game slide by the Phillies (11-6), but still didn’t manage to gain any ground on East Division Leader, Glens Falls (14-3), who won 5-4 at Amsterdam.

The Phillies got on the board in the second when Hunt reached on a one-out walk and came around to score on an RBI double by Brian Harris (Vanderbilt).

Saratoga tacked on four more runs in fourth on back-to-back doubles by Jon Nicolla (Duke) and Bryan Rose (Kentucky). Aaron Fields (Wright State) drove in Rose with his RBI single up the middle. Corey Hunt (Virginia) would drive out Little Falls starter Mike Kellar (Niagara) with a long RBI single scoring Fields. Donnie Webb (Oklahoma State) followed with the Phillies third double of the inning driving in Hunt for a 5-0 lead.

The Phillies return for a nine-game home stand beginning Saturday when Saratoga hosts Watertown at 7 p.m. and readies for a double-header versus Amsterdam Sunday afternoon at East Side Rec beginning at 4 p.m.

Phils Notes
Got their number –
Thursday was the 10th straight win by the Phillies over the Miners. The last win by Little Falls over Saratoga was July 9, 2006.
Let’s Play Two – The rainout from June 21 against Little Falls has been re-scheduled for July 5 at East Side Rec with a scheduled game time of 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.

K-Man – Jake Willis (Siena) was selected by the home team as their K-Man for the night. He made 275 friends, striking out in the fifth inning creating a rush at the concession stand. At Veterans Memorial Park if the visiting K-Man strikes out, all food items are $1 for the remainder of that inning. The Siena senior would re-start his hitting streak which was snapped Wednesday versus Bennington, topping at 15 straight games.

Free Pass – Saratoga reliever, Mark Lamm, gave up his first base on balls of the season Thursday night when he sent Tom Edwards to first base on a free pass. He now has one walk and 12 strikeouts on the year for the Phillies.
