Four hits for Dickerson, good outings for Borden and Creasy

Still plenty of minor league action on Sunday:

-- Indianapolis dropped a 3-0 decision to Louisville.  Jameson Taillon dominated for five innings.  In the 6th, though, he loaded the bases on a hit batsman, then a two-out hit and walk, followed by a bases-clearing double.  Still, he gave up only four hits and a walk in six innings, while fanning six.  The Indians had only two singles.  They drew no walks and struck out 11 times.  Gregory Polanco made his AAA debut, playing center and going 0-4.

-- Altoona scored all their runs in the 1st in an 8-3 win over Akron.  Most of the damage came on three-run HRs by Alex Dickerson (pictured), his 17th, and Andy Vasquez, his fourth.  Dickerson went 4-4 and Vasquez 2-5.  Justin Howard had two doubles in five ABs and Alen Hanson went 2-4.  After a slow start, Hanson is up to .258.  Nate Baker gave up two runs and fanned seven in six innings.

-- Bradenton couldn't hold a 2-0 lead and lost to Fort Myers, 3-2, in ten innings.  Joan Montero tossed five shutout innings, but James McDonald continued struggling through his rehab, allowing two runs on four hits in two innings.  Zack von Rosenberg gave up two singles and two hit batsmen in the 10th without recording an out to lose it.  Stetson Allie went 1-4 with a double and Dan Gamache hit his fifth HR.

-- West Virginia took two from Lexington.  The Power won the completion of last night's suspended game, 4-3.  Clay Holmes threw three scoreless innings with five strikeouts before the game was suspended.  Jason Creasy "started" the resumption and allowed two runs, one earned, on four hits and a walk, with five strikeouts.  Since moving to the rotation, Creasy has posted a 2.47 ERA in 13 starts, which doesn't count today's outing.  Josh Bell went 1-3 with a walk and his 13th HR.  Luis Urena was 2-3 with a double and the very hot Jimmy Rider (whose middle name, according to MiLB.com, is "Bottles") drove in three.

Three pitchers combined on the seven-inning shutout to give the Power a 1-0 win in the regularly scheduled game.  Clario Perez started and went three innings, then Thomas Harlan allowed no hits or walks over two innings, striking out three.  Ryan Hafner gave up two hits and fanned three in the last two innings.  Urena drove in the only run as the Power had just three hits.  Bell didn't play.

-- Jamestown lost to Williamsport, 3-2, in ten innings.  Austin Meadows seems to be adapting quickly to the NYPL, as he went 3-5.  Reese McGuire made his NYPL debut, going 1-4 and throwing out two of the four runners who attempted to steal on him.  Candon Myles was 2-4.  Starter Buddy Borden gave up one run in five innings.  He allowed four hits and a walk, and fanned three.  He now has a 1.08 ERA and 23 strikeouts in 16.2 IP.
