Lots of games and lots of rain on Friday.
-- Indianapolis used the longball to beat Rochester, 4-2. Brett Carroll hit his 13th and went 2-3. Jared Goedert hit his ninth, a two-run shot. Andrew Lambo hit his seventh in AAA and 21st overall while going 2-2 with a walk. Jose Tabata went 2-3 with a double in what could be his last rehab appearance, particularly if Travis Snider goes on the DL. Graham Godfrey started and went five, allowing two runs. Duke Welker (pictured) struck out the side in the 9th.
-- Altoona was scheduled to play a doubleheader against Akron, but the teams were able to get only one game in. The Curve lost anyway, 4-1. David Bromberg gave up four runs, three earned, on six hits and three walks in five innings. He fanned six. Gregory Polanco went 1-4.
-- Bradenton split a doubleheader with Charlotte. The Marauders lost game one, 9-8, when their bullpen surrendered four runs in the bottom of the 7th. The winning run scored on a bases loaded walk. Orlandro Castro started and allowed five runs on seven hits and three walks in five innings. He fanned three. Willy Garcia had a three-run HR, his 11th. Alen Hanson went 1-3 with a triple and Stetson Allie 0-1 with three walks.
Bradenton won game two, 3-2, in 13 innings. Starter Robby Rowland struggled with his control, coming out after three innings, having surrendered two runs on six walks and two hits. Relievers Zack von Rosenberg, Emmanuel de Leon and Robbie Kilcrease combined to throw ten scoreless innings. The Marauders had only four hits in the game. Alen Hanson went 1-3 with a double, but exited for a pinch runner. Stetson Allie went 1-5 with a double. The winning run finally scored on a walk, wild pitch, balk and sac fly.
-- West Virginia started its game well over two hours late. The Power are now ahead, 7-4, in the 8th inning. Barrett Barnes and Dilson Herrera are each 1-4. Josh Bell is 2-4 and Max Moroff 2-3 with a triple. Luis Heredia has gone four innings, allowing six hits, two runs and two walks, with four strikeouts. He's now out of the game. I can't make it any later, so here's the link to the game.
-- Jamestown barely hung on for a 6-5 win over Auburn. The Jammers did it despite their pitchers walking nine and giving up nine hits, as Auburn left 16 runners on base. Starter Colten Brewer lasted three and two-thirds innings, allowing six hits, three walks, and two hit batsmen. Michael Fransoso went 2-2 with two walks and two doubles. Jin-De Jhang and Danny Collins each had two hits.
-- The GCL Pirates lost to the Astros, 6-5. Most of the damage came against starter Miguel Rosario and reliever Cameron Griffin. Justin Maffei went 4-5 and Ulises Montilla went 2-4, each with a double and a triple. Candon Myles and Tomas Morales each had two hits.
-- The DSL Pirates1 lost to the Angels, 17-10. Luis Benitez, Pablo Reyes and Yomifer Polanco each had one hit. The pitching kinda sucked.
