Polanco and Herrera get four hits apiece, Holmes bounces back

Dilson Herrera continued to scorch the ball, Gregory Polanco and a rehabbing Chase d'Arnaud led Bradenton, Clay Holmes had a good start after a bad stretch, and the Pirates organization went 5-0 against minor league teams

Friday's action:

-- Indianapolis won for the 30th time in 43 games, beating Buffalo, 2-1. Jared Goedert hit his third HR for one of the runs. The other scored when Tony Sanchez doubled and Jerry Sands tripled. Felix Pie, Brett Carroll and Sands each had two hits. Brandon Cumpton allowed just an unearned run in six innings on two hits and four walks. He struck out seven. Vic Black got the last five outs for his 11th save. He gave up one hit and struck out two.

-- Altoona edged Richmond, 2-1. Casey Sadler threw seven shutout innings, allowing five hits and two walks, with three strikeouts. The Curve had only five hits. Jarek Cunningham accounted for one run with his sixth HR. The other scored when Andrew Lambo walked, stole second, went to third when the throw was wild, and scored on a grounder.

-- Bradenton beat St. Lucie, 5-4, on a walkoff single by Willy Garcia. Chase d'Arnaud started at short in his second rehab game, going 2-3 with a triple, a walk and two steals. Gregory Polanco went 4-5 with two doubles. Garcia went 2-5 with his third HR. Alen Hanson replaced d'Arnaud late in the game and struck out in his only AB. He also committed his first error in 20 games. Zack Dodson made his third start since joining the Marauders and went six and two-thirds, allowing one run on three hits and two walks. He fanned five.

-- Dilson Herrera went 4-4 to lead West Virginia to a 3-1 win over Lexington. Herrera's hits included a double and his fourth HR. He's had two or more hits in five straight games. Clay Holmes bounced back from a string of bad starts, allowing one run on one hit and three walks in five innings. He struck out five. It bears mentioning, though, that Lexington is a terrible hitting team. Bryton Trepagnier and Ryan Hafner each contributed two scoreless innings, striking out five between them. Stetson Allie had an RBI single in four ABs. Josh Bell went 0-3 with a walk.
