Here's a look around at results from the minors last night.
Indianapolis lost 5-1 in Scranton, managing only four hits, two by John Bowker. Alex Presley went 0-for-4. Other than Presley and perhaps Brad Lincoln and Tony Watson, there haven't been a lot of really good Indianapolis performances by guys with futures with the big leagues, which is a shame, but at least this Pirates team isn't the type that has required tons of reinforcements from Class AAA.
Altoona lost 3-2 to Bowie and only had five hits. Tony Sanchez had the only extra-base hit, a double. Diego Moreno, who recently took Brian Leach's spot on the roster when Leach was demoted to Bradenton, pitched a scoreless inning of relief. Leach had 15 walks and seven strikeouts in 15 innings at Bradenton.
Bradenton beat Lakeland, 9-0. Jarek Cunningham continued piling up ridiculous power numbers, with a homer and a double; he now has 27 extra-base hits so far this year. He now has 19 strikeouts and no walks in his last nine games, however, and this could become a problem for him at the higher levels. Brett Lorin pitched six scoreless innings and had six strikeouts.
West Virginia was off. The Power will start a series at Delmarva today.
