Monday's games, with Bradenton off:
-- Phil Irwin threw six strong innings in his first start of the season to lead Indianapolis to a 3-1 win over Toledo. Irwin allowed one run on four hits and a walk, while fanning five. He also hit two batters and had to work out of some jams early. Bryan Morris recorded the last six outs without allowing a runner to pick up the save. He did it on five grounders and a strikeout. Darren Ford went 2-4, both triples, and Brett Carroll also went 2-4, with his first HR. Tony Sanchez had an RBI double, his first hit of the season. Brandon Inge played third, going 0-3 with a walk, a strikeout and two GIDPs.
-- Altoona dropped a 5-3 decision to Akron. Starter Tyler Waldron allowed four runs in six innings on seven hits and a walk. He struck out three. Adalberto Santos went 2-4 with his first HR, while Matt Curry also went deep for the first time. The first four hitters in the Altoona lineup (Mel Rojas, Jr., Jarek Cunningham, Curry and Andrew Lambo) struck out nine times in 16 ABs.
-- Tyler Glasnow was outstanding in his first start for West Virginia. He threw five shutout innings, allowing four hits and no walks, and fanning six. Unfortunately, the Power's bullpen, which so far looks like it might be a problem area as it was for much of last year, got torched for nine runs over the last three innings. The Power lost, 9-4, to Charleston. Stetson Allie went deep for the second day in a row, in fact the second AB in a row. He went 1-3 with a walk. Josh Bell went 1-4 with a walk and a three-run double. Raul Fortunato went 3-4 with a triple and Dilson Herrera went 2-4.
