Reading Fightins’ (18-13)

Reading had undoubtedly the most impressive win of the entire week for the Phillies system. Last Sunday afternoon, Reading fell into a 8-0 deficit early in the game. In the last four frames, the Fightins’ scored 13 unanswered runs to pick up the improbable win.

As per the usual, Scott Kingery was in the mix of it all, hitting a homer and adding another hit, a walk, and two more runs. Not too far behind him was Andrew Pullin who also hit a homer in the comeback. Jiandido Tromp was 3-5 with two runs and two RBI in the effort.

Pullin would add hits in four out the remaining five games last week, including two games with multiple knocks. The 23-year-old lefty is making a case to move up the ranks. He has been a solid offensive player at every level so far. Keep an eye on him moving forward this season, especially if Nick Williams’ inconsistencies continue.

Carlos Tocci, who has been very good this season, added a solid week as well. He had two multi-hit games and a game in which he walked three times. The batting trio ended the week looking pretty solid in the middle of the order:

Kingery: .288 with a .968 OPS

Tocci: .324 with a slightly lower, but still impressive .811 OPS

Pullin: .315 with a .985 OPS

On the pitching side of things, there was only one starter who deserves attention this week. Drew Anderson had easily his most effective start. He was utterly dominant, carrying a no-hitter into the seventh inning. His final line culminated with three hits, one earned run, and ten strikeouts.
