For Kyle Glogoski, his Class A Advanced debut on Saturday will be one that he and many others remember for a long time, as he combined, along with relievers Tyler Carr and Keylan Killgore, to toss a no-hitter against division rival Daytona.

In five innings, the 20-year-old right-hander struck out five Tortugas batters and walked a pair.  He threw 64 pitches, 45 for strikes.

The New Zealand native, Glogoski, made way for 23-year-old righty Tyler Carr, who worked the next three frames.  Carr, the Phillies' 31st round draft pick last year out of South Alabama, struck out four, while walking one.

Left-hander Keylan Killgore tossed the last inning to close it out with a one-two-three effort thanks to a remarkable catch on the final out by right fielder Matt Vierling.

"Watching Matt run that ball down to end it was an adrenaline rush to say the least but there was never a doubt in my mind he wasn't going to make the play," said Killgore.

"Being a part of something like that is unbelievably special," Killgore added.  "Kyle Glogoski made his first start tonight and he was electric from the beginning.  He pounded the zone and mixed his pitches really well. Tyler Carr came in and just did what he always does. He filled up the zone and induced ground balls with a plus change up. He's just been as consistent as you can be all year."

The 22-year-old was inspired by the two hurlers that preceded him in the contest. Killgore simply wanted to do right by them and the rest of the team to make sure everyone could enjoy and savor an incredible team effort.

Killgore, the Phils' 17th round draft selection out of Wichita State last year, sports a 1-0 record with seven saves, a 1.73 ERA along with an 11.5 K/9 mark in 17 outings this season for the Threshers.

Carr, who opened the 2019 campaign with Lakewood, has a combined 3-1 record with two saves, a 1.25 ERA and a 9.0 K/9 mark in 20 appearances. 

Glogoski started his week by notching the victory in the Class A South Atlantic League All-Star Game with a scoreless frame of work on Tuesday.  He returned from the mid-season break to learn on Thursday that he would be promoted to Clearwater.

To pace the offense and help the team earn a 5-0 win, center fielder Simon Muzziotti collected four hits in five trips to the plate and designated hitter Jhailyn Ortiz launched his 12th home run of the year while driving in two runs and walking once.

The win put Clearwater's second half record at 5-1.  Last week they finished the first half of the season in second place in the Florida State League North division, 5 1/2 games behind division champion Dunedin.

Who is Your Favorite Willie 'Mays' Hayes?

PhoulBallz.com is wondering which individual who has portrayed Willie "Mays" Hayes is the favorite of the public. Hayes, of course, is the character made famous in the Major League motion picture series. In Major League , Willie "Mays" Hayes was portrayed by budding Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes, who would go on to action movie superstardom. Snipes has starred in major motion pictures like the Blade trilogy, Passenger 57 , Undisputed and many more. Snipes remains an impact Hollywood actor, despite legal troubles related to income tax evasion. Snipes was replaced for the sequel, Major League II when his busy career, and possibly the film's budget, would not allow him to return, by Omar Epps.

Phillies minor leaguer Burch to use health scare as fuel

A missed baseball season wasn't the only challenge facing righty pitcher Tyler Burch this summer.   With persistent symptoms that began prior to spring training it was ultimately discovered, after the 2020 season was shut down due to the Coronavirus pandemic, that the 22-year-old had developed an autoimmune disease.   As symptoms that included dry mouth and frequent trips to the bathroom worsened, Burch's situation left his doctor puzzled.  And even the physician that conducted his team physical examination at the outset of spring training jokingly referenced diabetes, but did not take the possibility seriously.    The physical impacts subsided somewhat during spring training, as being more active and adhering to the team diet helped alleviate what he was experiencing.
