Reading also scored 11 runs Tuesday, but unlike Lehigh Valley they used the long-ball to pad their lead against the Cleveland Indian’s Double-A squad the Akron RubberDucks.

Jorge Alfaro had a three run home run in a seven-run fifth inning for the Fightin’ Phils. Dylan Cozens and Rhys Hoskins also hit solo home runs as the Phils went back-to-back-to-back to put up seven.
