Phillies Prospects Taylor Lehman on the Mound and Mitch Edwards with the Bat Pace the Adelaide Giants to a 13-3 Win In ABL Action

Finally the Adelaide Giant broke out with a 13 run attack against the Bisbane Bandits in Australian Baseball action.

In a well-rounded game, the Giants got shutout starting pitching from Taylor Lehman, a grand slam from Edwards and stolen bases by the likes of Luke Williams and Kendall Simmons.

The tall 6’8″ lefty was dominating striking out six in four innings. He has been hard to hit all season.  In eight innings over his three starts Lehman has allowed only two hits, two runs striking 12.

Lehman had outstanding stuff on Tuesday getting his strikeouts on a 94-mph fastball and an 84 mph slider. He allowed only two baserunners on a single and a walk in 53 pitches.

In addition to his grand slam, Edwards went the other way and added a fifth RBI by beating the shift on a single to left. The switch-hitting catcher who was the DH in the game now has a home run from both sides of the plate.

According to the play-by-play announcer, the ball Mitch hit landed  369 ft. from home plate over the right field fence with a 97 mph exit velocity.

Catcher Colby Fitch made his ABL debut after coming off of quarantine for over 20 days. Pitcher Tyler Burch has been added to the roster.  The Phillies now have ten players on the Giants roster.

Hopefully, the likes of Taylor Lehman and Rixon Wingrove can earn invites to the Phillies major league spring training camp.
