Heavy schedule on Tuesday.
-- Indianapolis got hammered by Charlotte, 9-2. Atahualpa Severino moved to the rotation and gave up six runs, five earned, in an inning and two-thirds. Andy Oliver moved to the bullpen, allowing a run in two innings on three hits and two walks. He fanned three. Jared Hughes had a 1-2-3 inning. Jared Goedert went 2-4 and Andrew Lambo 1-3. Each had a double.
-- Altoona dropped a doubleheader to Trenton. The Curve dropped game one, 3-2. Nick Kingham gave up two in the 1st but kept the bad guys off the board after that. He gave up three hits and three walks, and fanned three, in five and two-thirds. Jhonathan Ramos gave up three straight singles with two out in the bottom of the 7th to lose it. Alex Dickerson provided the Altoona offense with a two-run HR, his 13th, in four ABs. That ties his HR output from last year with about six weeks to go. Gregory Polanco went 0-1 with three walks.
The Curve dropped game two, 3-1, as former Pirate draftee Zach Nuding threw a seven-inning complete game. Altoona had only four hits, two by Justin Howard. Polanco went 0-3 to drop his average to .259. Eliecer Navarro gave up two HRs to take the loss.
-- Bradenton dropped a 6-3 game to Lakeland. Alen Hanson had one hit, his seventh HR and second in two days, in five trips. He also committed an error that led to two runs. Hanson now has 13 RBIs in his last ten games. Willy Garcia went 3-4 with a double. Stetson Allie went 0-4 with two strikeouts.
-- West Virginia took two from Kannapolis behind its two top pitching prospects. Tyler Glasnow threw six one-hit, shutout innings to key a 1-0 win in game one. He was perfect through four, then survived two walks and a single in the 5th before throwing a 1-2-3 6th. He fanned six. West Virginia had just three singles, one by Dilson Herrera and two by Walker Gourley. Barrett Barnes went 0-3.
The Power took game two behind Luis Heredia, 5-1. Heredia pitched well without dominating, allowing the one run in five innings on three hits and three walks. He struck out two. Eric Wood went 2-3, Josh Bell 1-3 and Herrera 0-3. Most of the offense came on a Jonathan Schwind grand slam, his second HR. Barnes came out after one AB, as he apparently injured himself running out a grounder.
-- Jamestown beat Batavia, 7-0, in a game that was stopped by rain with one out in the bottom of the 7th. The Jammers don't have a lot of power, but they're batting over .280 as a team and leading the New York-Penn League in scoring by a wide margin (over, ironically, State College). In this game, Harold Ramirez and Jin-De Jhang (pictured) each went 3-4. Ramirez had a triple and three RBIs, while Jhang had a double. Adam Frazier went 1-3 with a walk. Jamestown started seven players with batting averages over .300. Chad Kuhl went five innings, giving up three hits and no walks, and fanning four.
-- The GCL Pirates banged out 19 hits in a 17-7 win over the Braves. Austin Meadows had another good day, going 3-4 with a double and a walk. Reese McGuire had just a single in five trips, but drove in four. Candon Myles went 3-6 with a double and four runs, Carlos Ozuna 3-4 with two doubles and a walk, Ulises Montilla 2-6 with a double and three RBIs, Daniel Arribas 3-5 with a double, and Nick Buckner 2-5. Neil Kozikowski made his pro debut, giving up three runs, one earned, on four hits in two innings. Cameron Griffin struck out five in an inning and two-thirds, but also gave up two hits and let two inherited runners score.
-- The DSL Pirates1 lost to the Rockies. Nothing good happened.
No result was available for the DSL Pirates2.
