Goedert HRs twice, Glasnow and Oliver walk everybody

Jared Goedert led the way as Indianapolis clouted four HRs, while Andy Oliver and Tyler Glasnow both walked their way to early exits

Tuesday's action:

-- Indianapolis played longball to beat Pawtucket, 7-2. Jared Goedert (pictured) led the offense, going 3-4 with a double and two HRs, giving him seven on the year. Tony Sanchez went 2-4 with his fifth HR and Jeff Larish hit a three-run bomb, his first. Alex Presley went 2-4. Andy Oliver started but lasted only three and a third due to control problems. He allowed only two runs and three hits, but he walked six and threw only 36 of 70 pitches for strikes. He fanned two. Oliver now has walked 45 in 56.2 IP, in case you're wondering why he hasn't been called up. Ryan Reid threw three and two-thirds scoreless relief innings to get the win. John McDonald played second and went 0-4. Over-35 infielders are now hitting a composite .134 for the Indians.

-- Altoona lost to Binghamton, 8-5. Starter Casey Sadler gave up only four hits and two walks in six innings, striking out five, but allowed four runs. Luis Sanz, who failed to retire a batter in his start two days ago, gave up another four runs in two-thirds of an inning after relieving Sadler. Andrew Lambo had two of Altoona's six hits. Alex Dickerson returned from the DL and went 0-5 with three strikeouts.

-- Bradenton got shut out by Ft. Myers, 5-0. Zack Dodson gave up three runs on seven hits and two walks in five innings against the FSL's best offense. He struck out two. Taylor Rogers, a non-descript finesse lefty, threw seven shutout innings against the Marauders, fanning seven and walking none. Alen Hanson went 2-4, but got picked off after leading off the game with a single, just ahead of a triple by Benji Gonzalez. Gregory Polanco went 1-4 with three strikeouts. Dan Gamache went 2-3.

-- Tyler Glasnow had a major control meltdown as West Virginia lost to Greensboro, 12-3. Greensboro is a weak-hitting team that came in last in the SAL in free passes, but Glasnow walked seven, hit one and threw four wild pitches in three and two-thirds. He was charged with seven runs, four earned, and fanned only two. He allowed only two hits, but both left the park. Jonathan Schwind and Stetson Allie each had two hits, with Allie going 2-4 with a walk and a strikeout. Josh Bell went 0-5 with two strikeouts. Dilson Herrera got the day off.
