Just three games Thursday, as Indianapolis was off.

-P- Altoona downed Harrisburg, 6-4, behind a strong outing from Brandon Cumpton. He allowed just five hits, two walks and two runs over 7.2 innings, and also contributed a double. He had 14 groundball outs and just one fly out. Duke Welker gave up the last two runs in the ninth. Robbie Grossman broke out of a slump, going 2-3 with a double, walk and HBP. Brock Holt had a double and triple in five at bats. Tony Sanchez had a double in four at bats. Adalberto Santos went hitless in four ABs and is now hitting .405. Former Pirate farmhand Jim Negrych went 1-for-2 with two walks for Harrisburg.

-P- Bradenton got shut out for the second day in a row, losing 1-0 to Charlotte. Veteran RHP Daniel Cabrera, who had to be shut down during spring training, made his first appearance for the Pirates' organization. Surprisingly, he went six innings, allowing seven hits, no walks and one run to take the loss. He fanned five. The Marauders had only three hits, two by Carlos Paulino. Alex Dickerson and Mel Rojas, Jr., sat the game out.

-P- West Virginia rode an eight-run second inning to a 9-4 win over Savannah. Everybody in the lineup had at least one hit. Gregory Polanco, Dan Gamache, Willy Garcia and Junior Sosa all went 2-for-4. Gamache had a double and triple, and Garcia hit his second homer. Alen Hanson went 1-5 to drop his average to .402, while extending his hitting streak to 16 games. The Power stole five bases, two by Polanco and one by Hanson. Zack Dodson had a shaky start, allowing eight hits, two of them longballs, over five-plus innings. He gave up four runs, three earned, while walking two and fanning three. Orlando Castro threw four shutout innings to pick up a save. He gave up just one hit and no walks, while fanning six.
