Kingham has a little trouble, Pimentel has more

Stolmy Pimentel had yet another poor start, while Nick Kingham mostly pitched well but had a little trouble with the longball. And some former pitcher hit another HR.

Thursday's games:

-- Indianapolis eked out a 3-2, 10-inning win over Pawtucket. The winning run scored after the Tribe loaded the bases with no out following a leadoff double by Ivan De Jesus, Jr. Felix Pie hit into a force play at the plate, but a wild pitch brought in De Jesus to end the game. Starter Kris Johnson went seven, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks. He struck out three. Jared Hughes threw a scoreless inning, fanning two, to get the win. Tony Sanchez went 2-4 with a double and Matt Hague went 2-4.

-- Stolmy Pimentel had another weak start as Altoona lost to Binghamton, 6-4. Pimentel allowed four runs on ten hits and two walks in six innings. He struck out four. The Curve had only four hits, two being HRs by the usual suspects: Andrew Lambo hit his eleventh and Jarek Cunningham his ninth.

-- Bradenton lost again to powerhouse Fort Myers (38-14 W/L record), 7-4. Nick Kingham pitched reasonably well, but ran into gopher ball trouble. He gave up five hits and walked none while fanning seven in six innings, but two of the hits went over the fence, accounting for three runs. Joan Montero allowed the other four runs and took the loss. Eric Avila went 2-3 with a double and his first HR; he's still hitting only .135. Dan Gamache went 2-4 with a double, Benji Gonzalez 2-4, and Alen Hanson 1-3 with a double and a walk. Gregory Polanco got the day off.

-- West Virginia dropped Lakewood, 8-3. Joely Rodriguez allowed just one run over the first five innings, but gave up a triple and a HR to the first two hitters in the 6th and came out. His final line was five innings, five hits, three runs, two walks and four Ks. Ryan Hafner threw two and two-thirds scoreless innings to get the win. Eric Wood, who's been slumping, and D.J. Crumlich each went 2-4 with a double and a walk. Junior Sosa went 3-5 with a double and Raul Fortunato (pictured) 2-5 with his fourth HR. Stetson Allie went 1-5 with his fourteenth HR, Max Moroff 1-2 with two walks, Dilson Herrera 1-4 with a walk, and Josh Bell 0-5 with two strikeouts. P2 has a detailed account of the game.
