Karstens rehabs and Sands finally goes deep

Jeff Karstens had a solid rehab start, Jerry Sands at last did what he was acquired for, Josh Harrison had a big day and Tyler Glasnow is awfully hard to hit

Everybody was in action Saturday, including a doubleheader for West Virginia.

-- Indianapolis ran its record to 31-13 with a 6-3 win over Pawtucket. Josh Harrison led the offense, going 2-5 with a double and a three-run HR, his first. He also stole two bases. Jerry Sands added his first HR and Brett Carroll hit his eighth. Tony Sanchez added his daily double in four ABs and Ivan De Jesus, Jr., went 2-3 with a walk. Starter Kris Johnson allowed three runs over six innings and Ryan Reid threw three scoreless innings for the save. He fanned four.

-- Altoona lost to Richmond, 5-3. Jeff Karstens made a rehab start, allowing two unearned runs on two hits and two walks in four innings. He fanned four and threw 40 of 62 pitches for strikes. All the hits, walks and runs came in the 1st inning. Ethan Hollingsworth gave up the other three runs and took the loss. Andrew Lambo hit his eighth HR and Gift Ngoepe his second. Alex Dickerson went 3-4 with a double and Carlos Paulino 2-3.

-- Bradenton got stomped by St. Lucie, 10-0. Adrian Sampson struggled again, allowing seven runs and eleven hits over four innings. The Marauders had only three hits. Gregory Polanco went 1-4 with a double and Alen Hanson 1-3 with a walk.

-- West Virginia split a doubleheader with Lexington. The Power took game one, 3-2. Tyler Glasnow started and allowed only one hit over four innings. It was a HR, though, following a walk to the game's first hitter. Glasnow allowed just one other walk and fanned eight, giving him 50 punchouts in 34 innings. Pat Ludwig pitched hitless ball over the last three innings to pick up the win. Stetson Allie (pictured) went 1-3 with his ninth HR and two strikeouts. Dilson Herrera and Josh Bell each went 0-3.

The Power dropped game two, 6-4. John Kuchno started and allowed six runs in five innings. Allie went 1-4 with a double and two more strikeouts. Herrera went 0-4 and Bell 0-3 with a walk.
