Altoona got rained out and State College's game was suspended in the 7th with the score 4-4.

-P- Indianapolis opened the post-Marte era with a 5-1 win over Pawtucket. Chris Leroux, who threw four scoreless innings in relief just three days ago, started and threw five shutout innings. He allowed three hits and a walk, and fanned three. Bryan Morris gave up an unearned run in two and two-thirds innings. Jo-Jo Reyes, in his first game back in AAA, came on just to get the last out of the 8th, gave up a hit, then got Andy LaRoche to end the inning. Chase d'Arnaud, Matt Hague and Jeff Clement all went 2-4. D'Arnaud had a triple and Clement had two doubles. With Marte gone, #FreeBrockHolt has texted the Indians' manager: "Look at me, I can be Centerfield."
