I was able to take in my first game of 2012 yesterday. I went to see the Reading Phillies take on the Erie SeaWolves on an overcast day. The game was pretty entertaining as Erie won 9-4. Reading Starting Pitcher David Buchanan had put up pretty good numbers going into the game, but got hit hard for 9 runs (8 earned) capped off by a grand slam by Erie 3B Wade Gaynor.
The game featured two of the top catching prospects in Erie’s Rob Brantly (who was DH for this game) and Reading’s Sebastian Valle. Brantly went 2-5 with an RBI double and Valle went 1-4, also with an RBI double.
I’m hoping to get to more games this month, so I’ll have to see what transpires.
