Just a quickie after rain helped the Phils sweep tonight’s doubleheader. Andrew Carpenter was optioned back to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, and the team recalled LHP Sergio Escalona from Double-A Reading.
In 17.1 innings this year, the 24-year-old Escalona has allowed 15 hits, and four runs. He has struck out 16 and walked eight. He has a 2.08 ERA and 10 saves in 14 games. Now good night already.
