Andy Oliver, Stolmy Pimentel and Tyler Glasnow all turned in standout starts, while Stetson Allie went deep twice and drove in five

Monday's action:

-- Andy Oliver recovered from a rough start and led Indianapolis to a 3-2 win over Gwinnett. He went six, allowing one run on four hits and two walks, while fanning seven. Oliver threw 58 of 97 pitches for strikes and drove in the Indians' first run with a sac fly. Duke Welker followed with a 1-2-3 7th, striking out two. Vic Black pitched the last two innings to pick up his sixth save, but just squeaked through the 9th. He gave up a run and three hits, and had to pitch out of a second-and-third, one-out jam. He fanned three and walked none. The Indians had only five hits, two by Felix Pie. Tony Sanchez went 1-2 with a double and a walk.

-- Stolmy Pimentel went seven innings in a 2-0 Altoona shutout win over Akron. He gave up six hits and a walk, and fanned five, while lowering his ERA to 0.30. Jeff Inman threw the last two innings. The Curve had only three hits: singles by Andy Vasquez and Matt Curry, and a solo HR by Alex Dickerson, his second.

-- Bradenton lost to Brevard County, 6-1. Starter Matt Benedict struggled, giving up six runs on ten hits and four walks in 5.2 IP. The Marauders had just four hits. Alen Hanson and Gregory Polanco both went 0-3.

-- Stetson Allie homered twice and drove in five to lead West Virginia to a 10-1 rout of Savannah. Allie now has eight HRs on the year. He fanned in his other three ABs. Josh Bell went 2-4 with two doubles and three RBIs. Barrett Barnes went 3-5, Ashley Ponce 3-4 with a double and three runs, and Dilson Herrera and Walker Gourley both went 2-5. Tyler Glasnow (pictured) threw five shutout innings against one of the SAL's best hitting teams, allowing two hits and two walks, and fanning seven.
