It was one of those good news, bad news days at the Carpenter Complex in the Phillies minor league action on Thursday. The Phillies AAA team downed their Yankees counterparts on Ashburn Field by using six home runs to win, 11-0.

The Phillies received shutout pitching from Jeanmar Gomez, Ben Lively, Jesen Therrien, Yacksel Rios and Miguel Nunez.

On Schmidt Field the Phillies AA team lost to the Yankees AA team 5-4 but the biggest blow may be an apparent injury to top closer candidate Grant Dyer.  Dyer took himself out the of the game in the ninth inning after striking out a Yankee batter.  He appeared to have a right arm injury.

Dyer was an 8th round draft pick last year out of UCLA.  Then, he pitched out of the pen for  Lakewood and  Williamsport striking out 57 in 42.1 innings. In the Sally League playoffs he struck out 9 in 7.2 innings in three games.

Right fielder Jose Pujols stood out with the bat hitting two long drives to the gap in left center. Watch a double of his, HERE.

The big news Thursday from the Complex were the power bats of the AAA team and the apparent injury to closer Grant Dyer in the AA game.
