Enyel De Los Santos throws during a spring training workout at Spectrum Field in Clearwater, Fla. He made his first start with the Phillies organization on Tuesday night for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Taking a bus ride around the minor leagues to see how the Phillies affiliates fared on Tuesday night:

 

INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE (AAA)

Scranton Wilkes-Barre 5, Lehigh Valley 2: RH starter Enyel De Los Santos gave up one run in five innings, but did not figure in the decision as the IronPigs lost their third straight.

De Los Santos, acquired from San Diego in the Freddy Galvis deal, gave up seven hits and struck out seven, including former Phillie Cody Asche three times. De Los Santos had five strikeouts through two innings.

CF Roman Quinn went 2-for-3 with an RBI and two walks. RF Dylan Cozens continues to scuffle, going 0-for-3. He knocked in his first run of the season with a sacrifice fly.

Relievers Tyler Viza and Tom Windle each gave up two runs with Viza getting the loss.

The IronPigs play at SWB on Wednesday as Drew Anderson, who earned a brief call-up to the Phils last season, makes his first start of the season. It’ll be just the second Triple-A start for Anderson, 24, who was picked in the 21st round in 2012.

Lehigh Valley (1-3) plays its first home game on Thursday, against Louisville (7:05 p.m. start).

FLORIDA STATE LEAGUE (A)
