Indy bullpen keys win on light day

Rain cut the action in half on Friday, but Indianapolis ran its record to 25-11 thanks to five hitless innings from Tim Alderson and two other relievers

Just two games, with Altoona and West Virginia rained out.

-- Indianapolis came back from a 3-0 1st inning deficit to beat Toledo, 4-3. Brooks Brown made another spot start and threw three scoreless innings after the early problems. The Indy bullpen followed with five hitless innings. Tim Alderson (pictured) went two and two-thirds to get the win. He walked two and struck out two. Jared Hughes pitched the 9th for the save, but his control problems resurfaced as he walked the first two batters he faced. He managed to get a big strikeout after Toledo Hurdled bunted the runners to second and third. Josh Harrison, Jared Goedert and Ivan De Jesus, Jr., each had two hits. De Jesus is hitting .329, or 4.77 times the average of a hypothetical old shortstop swinging a cardboard bat in the majors.

-- Bradenton lost to Charlotte, 7-2. Robby Rowland pitched decently, allowing three runs, two earned, in six innings. He gave up six hits and two walks, and fanned none. Newly promoted Cesar Lopez, signed a few years ago out of Cuba, got roughed up for four runs in an inning and two-thirds. Jacob Stallings had two doubles. Alen Hanson went 1-4 and got picked off base. Gregory Polanco got the day off.
