Big days for Dilson Herrera and Stetson Allie; Stolmy Pimentel puts up more zeros

Dilson Herrera reached base all six times up, Stetson Allie hit a pair of longballs, Stolmy Pimentel had another strong outing, and Bradenton won at baseball

The roundup from Saturday:

-- Indianapolis split a doubleheader with Columbus. The Indians got a good start from Kris Johnson in the first game, but couldn't muster any offense apart from Brett Carroll's second HR and lost, 2-1. Johnson threw a six-inning complete game, allowing four hits and three walks, and fanning three. He had a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the 6th, but gave up a two-run HR. Felix Pie went 2-4 with a double. Brandon Inge went 0-2 with a walk and two strikeouts.

In game two, the Indians scored four runs in the first and won, 5-0, as Brooks Brown, Ryan Reid and Vic Black combined on a seven-inning, one-hit shutout, fanning ten in the process. Alex Presley, Darren Ford and Matt Hague all went 2-4, and Jordy Mercer went 1-3 with a walk and two RBIs. Inge went 1-4 with two strikeouts and his second HR. It came in the 7th off Matt Capps.

-- Stolmy Pimentel pitched scoreless ball for the second time for Altoona. He went six and a third, allowing five hits and three walks, and fanning seven. He threw 57 of 91 pitches for strikes. Jeff Inman followed by retiring eight straight. The game went scoreless into the 10th, but Luis Sanz gave up three runs in the top half and the Curve could answer with only one, giving Harrisburg the 3-1 win. The Curve had only five hits, one of them a pinch single by Adalberto Santos, making his first appearance in several days.

-- Bradenton beat St. Lucie, 4-3, to snap a season-opening, eight-game losing streak. Adrian Sampson recovered reasonably well from a bad first start. He gave up two runs in the first, but after that pitched scorelessly until he was lifted with one out in the 5th. He allowed four hits and a walk, and fanned three. The Marauders trailed 3-2, but scored two in the bottom of the 7th to take the lead and hung on. Gregory Polanco, Jose Osuna and Benji Gonzalez all went 2-4.

-- West Virginia used an eight-run outburst in the 9th to overcome seven (that's 7, or S - E - V - E - N) errors, seven walks, one wild pitch, two hit batsmen and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and post a 14-9 win over Asheville. Dilson Herrera keyed the attack by reaching base six times, going 4-4 with two walks and his first two extra base hits of the season, a double and a HR. He scored four runs and drove in three. Stetson Allie homered twice, including a three-run blast in the 9th. He went 2-6 with five RBIs and now has five HRs on the season. Eric Wood went 2-4 with a double and his third HR. Raul Fortunato also had a three-run bomb in the 9th, his first, and went 2-5. Max Moroff went 2-6 with a double. Tyler Glasnow started and, after walking none in his first start, struggled through two and a third, walking five. He allowed only one hit, but gave up three runs, two earned. He fanned four. Glasnow by all accounts is still a work in progress, so a few more outings like this won't be a complete surprise and shouldn't be alarming. Three relievers allowed six more runs, but the Power overcame a three-run deficit with its big 9th inning.
