PHILLIES’ FUTURE STAR THOMPSON PITCHING LIKE A MAJOR LEAGUER

By Michael Donovan

Phillies’ prospect — No. 47 overall — Jake Thompson continued to roll last night as he fired six scoreless innings of three-hit ball to lead Triple-A Valley past Indianapolis.

The Phillies’ No. 2 prospect struck out five but also walked a season-high four batters, with 50 of his 90 pitches going for strikes.

Since the beginning of June, Thompson, 22, has won six of his past nine starts while posting a stellar 0.58 ERA over 62 1/3 innings in that span. During that stretch, the 22-year-old righty has lowered his season ERA to 2.29 from 4.23.
