Taillon and Glasnow dominate

Jameson Taillon threw six shutout innings, Tyler Glasnow fanned nine over five innings, and Dilson Herrera had a big day at the plate

Bradenton was off on Sunday, but everybody else won.

-- Indianapolis beat Toledo, 8-2. Brandon Cumpton went six innings, allowing two runs on seven hits and three walks. He fanned four. Jared Hughes pitched a 1-2-3 9th, striking out two. Josh Harrison went 3-5 and Brett Carroll hit his fifth HR. Matt Hague, Jerry Sands and Ivan De Jesus, Jr., each had two hits. Sands is now hitting .164, which means that if he goes hitless in his next 159 ABs, he'll have the same average as John McDonald.

-- Jameson Taillon threw six shutout innings as Altoona beat Richmond, 2-1. Taillon allowed two hits and three walks, and fanned eight. It did take him 100 pitches to get through the six innings. He didn't figure in the decision, as the game remained scoreless until the 8th. Jhonathan Ramos and Ethan Hollingsworth combined to surrender a run in the top of the inning, but Altoona tied it in the bottom half on an RBI single by Neil Walker, who went 2-3 with a walk. The Curve then won the game in the 9th on an error.

-- West Virginia beat Lexington, 6-2, behind another dominant outing by Tyler Glasnow. He allowed one run on two hits and two walks in five innings, while striking out nine. He now has 42 strikeouts in 30 innings, and opponents are hitting .129 against him. That's 117 points below the league average, which means that if Glasnow was exclusively facing the SAL equivalent of John McDonald, opponents would be hitting -.050 against him. Ryan Hafner followed Glasnow with two scoreless innings, allowing one hit and fanning three. Dilson Herrera (pictured) led the offense, going 3-5 with his third HR. Josh Bell went 2-3 with a walk. Stetson Allie went 0-4 with two whiffs, but still drove in two runs.
