In the Double-A Eastern League All-Star Game on Wednesday, four Reading players represented the Phillies in the contest played at Trenton's ARM & HAMMER Park. 

Catcher Deivi Grullon, who won the EL's All-Star Home Run Derby on Tuesday, first baseman/third baseman Zach Green and outfielder Jan Hernandez were all in the starting lineup.  Grullon and Hernandez each homered while Green went 0-for-2.

Relief pitcher Edgar Garcia was charged with three earned runs in 1/3 of an inning.

The contest was tied at four runs apiece after nine innings, so to decide the game, each team selected one batter to face off in a hitting challenge.  In a two minute window, the players would accumulate points for balls in play or balls launched as home runs.  Green, representing the Eastern Division was bested by Pirates prospect Will Craig, the Western Division's representative, in the unique tie breaking overtime round. 

In the Triple-A All-Star Game, played in Columbus, OH, the Pacific Coast League defeated the International League 12-7. Lehigh Valley pitcher Cole Irvin started for IL, pitching a scoreless inning, striking out two and surrendering two hits.  First baseman/OF Joey Meneses laced two hits in three at bats.

On Thursday, it was announced that Green would be promoted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.  Corner infielder Damek Tomscha is reportedly headed back to Reading, where he played earlier this season, from Lehigh Valley.

Green, 24, was the Phillies' 3rd round draft selection in 2012.  In 77 games this year, the righty batter posted a .296 average with 17 homers and 53 RBI.

Tomscha, a 26-year-old righty batter, tallied a .196 batting average with two homers and eight RBI in 26 games for the IronPigs.  He was the Phils' 17th round draft pick in 2014.

In other moves between the Phillies' Double-A and Triple-A affiliates...hurler Ranfi Casimiro goes to Reading with catcher Nick Rickles and pitcher Jake Waguespack going up to Lehigh Valley.

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best. When asked how he felt regarding the Phillies, he told Steve Keeley that he was, "Stoked, baby!" The unidentified phanatic then proclaimed, "We are talking about the Fightins here, the Fightins! Said!" Check out the media player below, as the transcribed version certainly does not do this phireball of phandom justice. The Phillies forced game 6 of the National League Championship Series with a 4-2 victory over the Giants in San Francisco on Thursday night. Game 6 will feature Roy Oswalt vs. Jonathan Sanchez in a return pitching match up from game 2. First pitch is scheduled for 7:57 pm EST at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Be sure to tune in on 97.3 ESPN's Weekend Sports Guide with Tyrone Johnson this afternoon around 1:15pm to hear me chatting about the Phillies! 97.3 is based in Atlantic City.
