Early in a game that turned into a disappointing extra-inning loss for the Double-A Reading Fightins, the team lost its lead-off man to an apparent upper leg injury.

Center fielder Roman Quinn was en route to first base, running out his second hit of the night in the bottom of the second inning in Friday's contest against Akron, when he began clutching his upper left leg. Quinn could not put weight on the leg and was assisted off the field, according to Reading Eagle reporter Mike Drago, who also updated that the team's manager Dusty Wathan did not provide any official word on the ailment following the game.

The 22-year-old, who was the Phillies' second round draft pick in 2011, sports a .306 batting average with four home runs, 15 RBI and 28 stolen bases in 57 games for the Fightins this season.

Quinn, a speedy Florida native, missed a portion of last season following off-season surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon on his right leg.

Phillies Nation ranked Quinn as the number 4 prospect in the Phils' organization this year.

Reading lost the contest by a score of 12-11 in 12 innings after blowing a five-run lead in the 9th inning.

Last week, as he rang in his 26th birthday, Dylan Cozens wasn't celebrating.  Instead, he took to the streets in the midst of rioting to protect local businesses in his native Scottsdale, AZ. After 1:00 AM, Cozens, a former Phillies outfield prospect and current Rays minor leaguer, caught a glimpse of some rowdy happening on Facebook Live.  Posts showed violence and thievery and the former second round draft selection wasn't going to let it continue.  "When I saw what they were doing and the reason behind it, I decided to try and stop it because it wasn't right. It had nothing to do with Black Lives Matter.  It was a hate crime to go and try to destroy businesses and loot and hurt peopl
