The action from Sunday:
-- Indianapolis, playing without Brandon Inge for the first time, coped by exploding for nine runs in the 7th inning en route to easily their largest run total of the year in a 12-7 win over Columbus. Jared Goedert and Brett Carroll each went 2-5 with a HR, Goedert's first and Carroll's third, and three RBIs. Goedert also had a double. Tony Sanchez took over behind the plate after Brian Jeroloman was ejected and went 3-3 with a double and a walk. Sanchez has started only six of the Indians' 11 games so far, which is odd for a former first round draft pick. Ivan De Jesus, Jr., and Felix Pie went 2-5. Andy Oliver started and struggled a little with his control, walking three and allowing six hits in four and a third innings. He gave up five runs and threw 52 of 88 pitches for strikes. Tim Alderson got the win with three and a third innings in relief. He allowed one run and stranded the two runners he inherited from Oliver.
-- Altoona dropped a 4-2 decision to Harrisburg. Tyler Waldron allowed two runs over six innings, but took the loss. Andy Vasquez, spelling Mel Rojas, Jr., in center, went 2-5 with his first HR and backup catcher Charlie Cutler went 3-4. The rest of the lineup produced only two hits.
-- Bradenton resumed its losing ways and lost to St. Lucie, 8-2. Alen Hanson's troubles intensified, as he committed three more errors, giving him ten in ten games. At the plate he went 0-4 with a walk and three strikeouts, dropping his average to .191. He's striking out in nearly a third of his ABs. Dan Gamache went 3-4 with a double and Jose Osuna went 2-4 with his first HR. Eliecer Navarro, Jhonathan Ramos and Zac Fuesser combined to give up the eight runs in eight innings. Jhondaniel Medina, acquired from the Orioles for Yamaico Navarro, threw a scoreless inning in his debut with the organization.
-- West Virginia scored six in the 8th inning to earn a come-from-behind, 12-7 win over Asheville. Raul Fortunato hit a three-run HR for the second game in a row and finished 3-5 with four RBIs. He's now hitting .360. Stetson Allie went 3-3 with a double, a walk and a steal, and is hitting .396. Dilson Herrera went 1-2 with a double and two walks, Max Moroff went 1-3 with a walk and three runs, and Wyatt Mathisen and Walker Gourley each went 2-5. Joely Rodriguez started and sailed through four scoreless innings, but allowed five runs in the 5th. Jason Creasy got the win, allowing one run in two innings of relief.
