While the Philadelphia Phillies' major-league squad fell for just the second-time this season on Saturday — scoring a season-low two runs — some of their players still shined down in the minor leagues, including outfielders Roman Quinn (Clearwater) and Mickey Moniak (Reading), along with RHP Enyel De Los Santos (Lehigh Valley) and LHP David Parkinson (Reading).
Helping the Threshers to their first win on a rehab assignment (right oblique strain), Quinn — batting second — went 3-for-3 with a home run, two singles, walk, and sacrifice. He played all nine innings in center field, and is set to do so again on Sunday, before possibly making his return to the majors on Monday for the Phillies' three-game series opener against the Washington Nationals at Citizens Bank Park.
Moniak and the Reading Fightin Phils', behind Parkinson, improved to 3-0 on Saturday, limiting their opposition to just one run and two hits in their 8-1 victory. The 20-year-old, 2016 first overall pick outfielder went 2-for-4 with one run scored, three RBI, one walk and one strikeout, improving his batting average to .417. Moniak is the Phillies' No. 9-ranked prospect.
Both De Los Santos and Parkinson earned the win, tossing five innings while allowing one run and striking out 10 batters. De Los Santos, the Phillies' No. 6-ranked prospect, walked none with the IronPigs; Parkinson, their No. 21-ranked prospect, walked three with the Fightin Phils'.
De Los Santos, along with Jerad Eickhoff, are most poised for a 2019 look in the majors, as needed. De Los Santos went 1-0 with a 4.74 ERA, 15-8 strikeout-to-walk ratio and 1.421 WHIP over seven appearances (two starts) with the Phillies in 2018.
