Pimentel throws six shutout frames, Bell goes deep

Stolmy Pimentel had a good outing for Altoona, Tyler Glasnow struggled with his pitch count and Andy Oliver with his control, and Josh Bell hit his third HR

Bradenton was off on Wednesday and everybody else got underway in the AM.

-- Indianapolis split a doubleheader with Lehigh Valley. The Indians won game one, 4-1, behind five and two-thirds shutout innings by Kris Johnson.

Matt Hague went 2-3, Jerry Sands had a two-run double, and Tony Sanchez went 1-1 with two walks.

Andy Oliver's control problems resurfaced in game two, which Indianapolis lost, 6-3. Oliver walked five in five innings, along with seven hits and all six runs. He fanned three and threw 56 of 92 pitches for strikes. Erik Cordier and Duke Welker each threw a perfect inning in relief, fanning one. Jordy Mercer and Brian Jeroloman each went 2-3.

Josh Bell hit his third HR, but it was his only hit in five tries.
