Lambo hits walkoff HR, Glasnow fans eight

Andrew Lambo's first hit since his promotion was a big one and Tyler Glasnow allowed no runs in a slightly abbreviated outing

Everybody but the DSL teams was in action on Sunday.

-- Andrew Lambo (pictured) clubbed a walkoff HR with one out in the bottom of the 13th to give Indianapolis a 9-8 win over Norfolk. The Indians had tied the game in the bottom of the 9th on a double by Jared Goedert. The win was Indy's second straight in walkoff fashion and the HR was Lambo's first hit since his promotion. The Indians' starter, Andy Oliver, saw his control problems continue to trend upward. He lasted only three and a third, walking six and throwing only 41 of 81 pitches for strikes. He was charged with five runs, four earned, and allowed five hits while walking four. It's obvious that Oliver will not be an option for the Pirates' beleaguered rotation any time soon. Zach Thornton and Atahualpa Severino both struggled in relief, but Duke Welker put up three scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and fanning two. He threw 26 of 36 pitches for strikes and seems to be breaking out of his slump. Lambo on the day went 1-2 with three walks, a sacrifice and a sac fly, and drove in three altogether. Goedert went 3-5 with a double, Lucas May 3-4 and Chase d'Arnaud 3-7 with a triple. Brett Carroll added two doubles to the attack.

-- Altoona lost to Binghamton, 5-2. Starter Ethan Hollingsworth pitched well in place of Jameson Taillon, who was scratched with a stiff neck. He gave up one run on three hits in five innings. Jason Townsend ultimately gave up a three-run HR in the top of the 9th to lose the game. Justin Howard went 2-4 with his second HR and drove in both runs. Mel Rojas, Jr., went 2-4 with a triple and Alex Dickerson 2-4 with a double.

-- Bradenton survived four HRs, two of them by Miguel Sano (I'm just reporting the facts here), to drop Fort Myers to a 41-19 record with an 8-6 win. Dan Gamache led the offense, going 3-4 with two doubles and his first HR. Jose Osuna went 2-3 with a double, Alen Hanson 1-4 with his third HR, and Gregory Polanco 1-4 with a double. Adrian Sampson started and allowed just three hits and a walk in six innings, but two of the hits left the park, leaving him charged with three runs. He fanned three.

-- West Virginia lost to Hagerstown, 4-1. Tyler Glasnow started and allowed no runs, but came out after four and two-thirds, presumably due to his pitch count. He gave up three hits and three walks, and fanned eight. Glasnow threw only 38.1 IP last year and is up to 52.1 this year, with the season half over. A lot of those undoubtedly are high-pitch-count innings, too, so the Pirates will probably be watching his workload closely. Jhondaniel Medina got the last out in the 5th, but gave up four runs, only one earned, while recording only one out in the 6th. The Power got its only run on Walker Gourley's third HR. The team had only four hits, with Max Moroff going 2-4 and Josh Bell 1-4. Stetson Allie went 0-3 with a walk.
