Cole throws seven shutout innings

Gerrit Cole went seven and allowed only three hits, while Stolmy Pimentel broke out of a slump with a seven-strikeout performance

There's not much to report today. Bradenton was rained out and West Virginia's game was suspended after three innings. The DSL teams were scheduled to play, but is even more inefficient than usual and hasn't posted anything on either game. Apparently, DSL box scores do have to walk off the island.

-- Gerrit Cole threw seven shutout innings against Durham, which is easily the highest-scoring team in the International League, and Indianapolis eked out a 1-0 win. Cole allowed just three singles and a walk, and struck out three. He threw 62 of 95 pitches for strikes. Kris Johnson finished, striking out three in his two innings. The only run scored when Josh Harrison, who went 2-2, got hit by a pitch and scored on a double by Felix Pie. John McDonald played second and went 1-4. In a few days, his rehab assignment will have lasted as long as he was out of action.

-- Stolmy Pimentel broke out of his slide and keyed Altoona to a 7-3 win over Reading. Pimentel allowed three runs, two earned, in six innings. He gave up six hits and a walk, and fanned seven. Mel Rojas, Jr., Andrew Lambo and Adalberto Santos each had two hits, with Rojas hitting a triple and the other two doubles.

-- West Virginia's game against Delmarva was suspended after three innings with the Power trailing, 1-0. Joely Rodriguez gave up the one run in three innings on two hits and a walk. He struck out two.
