Morton rehab start goes well, but nobody hits much

Charlie Morton threw four good innings in a rehab start, but the three Pirate affiliates in action totaled only two runs and all three lost

Indianapolis was rained out, but everybody else was in action on Tuesday.

-- Altoona continued to struggle on offense, getting shut out by Richmond, 3-0. Charlie Morton made a rehab start and threw four shutout innings, allowing a hit and two walks, and fanning three. He threw 69 pitches, 40 for strikes. David Bromberg followed and fanned five over three innings, but gave up a run to take the loss. Altoona hitters fanned 12 times. The Curve had a chance to take a lead with the bases loaded and no out in the 3rd, but Matt Curry and Andrew Lambo both fanned and Mel Rojas, Jr., grounded out. Andy Vasquez went 2-4 with a double.

-- Bradenton lost to Jupiter by the same score as Altoona. The Marauders got a good start from Matt Benedict, who allowed one run on four hits and no walks in six innings. Benji Gonzalez went 3-4 with a double. Gregory Polanco and Alen Hanson each went 0-4. Hanson had two errors, giving him 14 on the year.

-- West Virginia lost to Charleston, 4-2. John Kuchno started and gave up one run in four innings on five hits and three walks. He fanned four. The Power's struggling bullpen inherited a 2-1 but gave up three runs to lose it. The Power had only five hits, including a two-run triple by Dilson Herrera. Barrett Barnes went 2-3 with a walk, but got caught stealing twice, including a pickoff that killed a rally. Josh Bell went 1-3 with a double and a walk.
