McGuire gets four hits, Cunningham goes deep

West Virginia was off on Wednesday and Indianapolis was rained out, so the action was a little light.

-- Altoona beat Trenton, 4-2. Gregory Polanco, Alex Dickerson and Jarek Cunningham all went 2-4. Cunningham had a double and his fifteenth HR. Polanco had a double. Kenn Kasparek threw four scoreless innings in relief to get the win.

-- Bradenton got hammered by Lakeland, 8-1. Robby Rowland continued to struggle, allowing six runs in five innings. Carlos Mesa provided the only run with his seventh HR. Stetson Allie went 0-3 with a walk. Alen Hanson didn't play.

-- Jamestown exploded for seven runs in the top of the 9th to rally from a 7-2 deficit and beat Batavia, 9-7. Michael Fransoso provided the big blow, a three-run HR that was his first as a pro. He went 2-4 overall. Harold Ramirez stayed hot, going 2-4. Jackson Lodge started and allowed four runs in three innings. Shane Carle allowed three more in three innings, but they were all unearned. He gave up three hits and a walk, and struck out three.

-- The GCL Pirates had a lot of players, particularly their prep draftees, struggling at the plate, but they seem to be picking up the offense. They pounded out 22 hits in beating the Yankees1, 8-6, in 11 innings. Austin Meadows (pictured) continued to recover from a slow start, going 2-5 with a walk, to improve his line to 250/339/462. Reese McGuire went 4-6 with a double to lower his average increase his average slightly to .431. Ulises Montilla went 3-4 with a double, Daniel Arribas 3-5 with two triples, and Nick Buckner 3-6, although with three strikeouts.
