Taillon struggles, Kingham doesn't

Jameson Taillon had two bad innings, but an Andrew Lambo walkoff HR capped a 9th inning rally for Altoona. Bradenton failed to take advantage of a strong Nick Kingham start and Josh Bell went deep to lead West Virginia.

Plenty of action on Tuesday, with six regularly scheduled games and the continuation of a suspended Altoona game.

-- Indianapolis lost to Durham, 6-2, in 13 innings. The Indians scored twice in the 1st and didn't score again. Starter Brandon Cumpton allowed two runs on five hits and a walk in seven innings, striking out two. Duke Welker threw two scoreless innings, giving up a hit and a walk, and fanning two. Newcomer Atahualpa Severino retired only one of the four hitters he faced, but Brooks Brown bailed him out of a bases loaded, one out jam. Brown then gave up the four runs in the 13th. Matt Hague and Jerry Sands each had two hits. John McDonald played short and went 1-4. Tony Sanchez went 0-6 and stranded eight runners.

-- Altoona dropped the suspended game to Reading, 6-5. Play resumed with the score 2-2 after seven. Reading scored four in the bottom of the 8th and Altoona came back with three in the top of the 9th. The original starter, Casey Sadler, allowed two runs in six innings. Reliever Kenn Kasparek, who actually threw an inning before the game was stopped, gave up the four-spot to take the loss. Justin Howard went 3-4 with a double.

The Curve won the regularly scheduled game, 7-6, with a dramatic 9th inning comeback. Trailing 6-4, the Curve got one run when Alex Dickerson hit into a double play with runners at first and third. Andrew Lambo then followed a walk to Jarek Cunningham with a walkoff HR, his 14th. Altoona had only six hits in the game, two by Mel Rojas, Jr. Jameson Taillon started and had bad innings at either end of his outing. He gave up two in the 1st, then threw four scoreless innings before getting touched for four in the 6th. Taillon was hurt by two infield hits before giving up a two-run HR. Overall, he gave up six runs, five earned, in six innings on eight hits and a walk. He fanned three.

-- Bradenton wasted a strong start by Nick Kingham (pictured) and dropped a 1-0 game to Daytona. Kingham allowed the one run over 7.2 IP on just four hits and a walk. He struck out three. Jose Osuna had two of Bradenton's six hits. Alen Hanson went 0-2 with two walks and Gregory Polanco went 1-4.

-- West Virginia outlasted Delmarva, 7-5, despite getting outhit 13-6. Josh Bell hit his 8th HR in four ABs. D.J. Crumlich and Kawika Emsley-Pai each had two hits, and Stetson Allie went 0-3 with a walk. Starter John Kuchno gave up two runs in five and two-thirds on seven hits and no walks. He struck out four.

-- The DSL Pirates2 got hammered by the Nationals, 12-3. Michael de la Cruz went 1-2 with a walk. Johan Herrera, a third baseman who got a $300,000 bonus, went 1-4 with a walk. Carlos Munoz went 2-3 with two walks.
