DECK McGUIRE (JOSH GIBNEY / UNION LEADER)

Only In Print: Kevin Gray's On Baseball: Pitching prospects put on a good show

MANCHESTER — Monday's series opener between the first-place Reading Phillies and defending champion Fisher Cats, featuring Trevor May vs. Deck McGuire, was a night where no minor-league gimmicks were needed. The tall, downhill-throwing 22-year-olds kept the game scoreless until the fifth inning, and May eventually won the duel in a 3-2 triumph along the Merrimack River.

A large percentage of fans probably didn't realize they were watching the Phillies' No. 1 prospect squaring off against Toronto's No. 1 pick of the 2010 draft. May barely one-upped McGuire and improved to 5-0 (2.40 ERA) in his first Double-A season.
