- The Phillies 2019 first round pick, Bryson Stott, had gotten off to a slow start with Williamsport, but he is scorching-hot now. Here’s how his week went – Monday: 1-4; Tuesday: 2-5 with a double, a triple and two RBIs; Wednesday 2-4; Thursday 2-3; Friday: 2-4 with an RBI.
- Alec Bohm had a couple nice games this week. On Wednesday, he went 2-5. He also went 2-5 on Friday with a double. Bohm has one home run in his last 10 games and just four RBIs in that time.

- Colton Eastman one up’d Seabold by tossing six innings of one-run ball the following day. He allowed five hits and three walks and had a couple strikeouts.
- David Parkinson had the best start by a Reading pitcher this past week, though. Saturday, he pitched six innings, allowing one run. He gave up just three hits and one walk while striking out eight.
- Mickey Moniak went 2-4 with a triple and two runs scored for Reading on Saturday.

- Adonis Medina was rocked again this week, giving up seven runs in two innings. His ERA now sits at 4.96 and opponents are hitting .257 against him. That’s obviously less than ideal.
- Bryson Stott now has his average in Williamsport up to .298 and he’s slashing .325/.407/.569 for the season. It would be interesting to see him in Lakewood for the final two weeks of the season.
