Taillon rebounds from bad 1st inning

Jameson Taillon recovered well from a rough opening inning, Andrew Lambo kept hitting, and Josh Bell went deep

Everybody was in action on Wednesday.

-- Indianapolis lost to Pawtucket, 8-2. Starter Brandon Cumpton struggled against a lineup that features Bryce Brentz and some good-hitting veterans. Cumpton went five innings and gave up six runs, five earned, on nine hits and a walk. He fanned two. Duke Welker's poor stretch continued, as he allowed a run on two hits and a walk in one inning. Welker's ERA in April was 0.00. In May it's 8.49. Jared Hughes also allowed a run in one inning. The score could have been worse, but the Indians turned five double plays. Alex Presley went 2-4 with a triple, Chase d'Arnaud 2-5 with a triple, and Jeff Larish 2-4 with a double.

-- Jameson Taillon gave up four runs in the 1st, but Altoona came back to beat Binghamton, 8-4. Taillon gave up three groundball singles, a walk and a three-run HR (to sort-of prospect Allan Dykstra, who's having a very big year) in the opening frame, but allowed no hits and three walks in four shutout innings after that. He fanned five. Andrew Lambo (pictured) continued hitting well, going 2-5 with his tenth HR. Alex Dickerson and Drew Maggi each went 2-3 with a double. Mel Rojas, Jr., went 2-5 with a double and Charlie Cutler went 2-4. Cutler started the season as the backup catcher, but he's been something of a savior for the offense-starved Curve, batting .338 as his playing time has increased. Adalberto Santos went 0-5 with four strikeouts. He's now hitting .237.

-- Bradenton got pummeled by Fort Myers, 10-3. Adrian Sampson's year-long struggles continued, as he allowed six runs in six innings. Willy Garcia hit his fourth HR. Gregory Polanco went 1-4, Alen Hanson 0-3 with two walks.

-- West Virginia got hammered by weak-hitting Greensboro, 12-5. Starter Jake Burnette recorded only one out. He allowed five runs on five hits and two walks. John Kuchno fanned nine in five and two-thirds innings of relief, but he also allowed five runs and three longballs. Josh Bell went 2-4 with his seventh HR. Dilson Herrera went 1-5 with a double and Stetson Allie went 1-4 with two whiffs.
