Minor League Roundup: Justin Wilson, Nick Kingham Shut the Hitters Down; Nobody Shuts Down Altoona's Bats

Still only three games on Sunday due to the FSL All-Star break:

-P- Justin Wilson combined with three relievers on a one-hitter as Indianapolis took a 2-1 decision from Charlotte. Wilson went six, allowing the only hit and only run. He walked three and fanned five, while throwing 57 of 95 pitches for strikes. Jose Diaz, Dan McCutchen and Tim Wood each threw a hitless inning, with Wood striking out two in the 9th for the save. Jeff Clement broke out of a slump to go 2-4 and provide all the offense. He doubled in Starling Marte in the first, then hit his 8th HR in the top of the 9th to provide the winning margin.

-P- Altoona pounded out 20 hits and destroyed Binghamton, 15-6. Four players--Miles Durham, Stefan Welch, Quincy Latimore and Charlie Cutler--went 3-5. Durham and Cutler each had a double, while Welch hit his first AA HR and Latimore hit his 6th HR of the season. Robbie Grossman went 2-4 with a double, a walk and his 4th HR. Drew Maggi gave Brock Holt a rest at short and also went 2-4 with a walk. Shairon Martis started and struggled. Hunter Strickland threw a scoreless inning. Jeff Inman gave up a run over two innings and also contributed an RBI single to the carnage.

-P- West Virginia got a strong start from Nick Kingham and downed Hagerstown, 5-3. Kingham allowed one run on four hits and two walks over 5.1 IP. He fanned seven. Zac Fuesser gave up two runs in relief to vulture the win from Kingham. Eric Avila went 2-3 with a double and a triple, and Alen Hanson went 1-3 with a triple and a walk. Taylor Lewis, Dan Gamache and Jose Osuna all went 2-4, with Osuna adding a double. The Power managed to get three runs off fireballing Nats' prospect Alex Meyer despite nine strikeouts in five innings.
