Phillies Minor League Notebook for Friday April 11

Todd TranauskyCorrespondent IApril 11, 2008

The Clearwater Threshers of the Florida State League brought home the only win for the Phillies' minor league affiliates on Friday night.

The Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs lost their home opener at Coca-Cola Park, 6-0. The game was the first minor league game played in Lehigh Valley in four decades, but the Iron Pigs were unable to mark the occasion with a victory as the team fell to 0-9 to start the season. J.D. Durbin (0-2) turned in his second poor outing of the season, allowing four earned runs in five innings of work.

The Reading Phillies lost their home opener to the Altoona Curve by a score of 8-4. Two R-Phils outfielders, Javon Moran and Greg Golson, are having vastly different starts to the season. Moran went 0-for-5 against the Curve and is hitting .121 for the season, while Golson went 1-for-4 with a double and run scored and owns a .323 batting average.

The Clearwater Threshers beat the Lakeland Tigers, 1-0, in front of a sparse crowd of 1,881 at Bright House Networks Field. Antonio Bastardo put together his second masterful outing in a row, this time pitching five innings of shutout baseball while striking out 10 Tigers. Bastardo has a 0.90 ERA through two starts.

The Lakewood BlueClaws lost to the Delmarva Shorebirds by a score of 3-1 on Friday night. The top two hitters in the BlueClaws batting order went a combined 0-for-7 in the game, making hard for their offense to get in any kind of a rhythm.  Domenic Brown, the leadoff hitter, for Lakewood went 0-for-3 in the game despite a .324 average for the season
