James McDonald has mediocre rehab start

McDonald was victimized badly on the basepaths in a short start. The rest of the games were mostly rained out.

Very light action on Thursday. Bradenton had a doubleheader washed out, West Virginia had the continuation of a suspended game shortened and the regularly scheduled game postponed, and Altoona got rained out.

-- Indianapolis lost to Durham, 6-2. James McDonald's rehab didn't go especially well. He took 77 pitches (45 strikes) to get through three and two-thirds. He allowed three runs on four hits and a walk, and fanned two. Durham ran wild on McDonald and Tony Sanchez, stealing eight bases without getting caught, seven with McDonald on the mound. Tim Alderson followed, allowing three more runs, one unearned. Recently arrived Atahualpa Severino threw two scoreless innings. Indy faced top Rays' prospect Jake Odorizzi, who struck out eight and allowed the two runs in six innings. Alex Presley went 3-4 and Josh Harrison 2-4 with two doubles. Jerry Sands struck out all four times up.

-- West Virginia resumed its suspended game against Delmarva with the score 1-0 after three. The game made it only through the 5th and ended with the same score. The Power had only one hit. Joely Rodriguez allowed the one run in three innings before the game was suspended. Jason Creasy threw two scoreless innings after it resumed.

-- The DSL Pirates1 lost to the Phillies, 11-5. Shortstop Johan De Jesus went 1-4 with a walk. Third baseman Julio de la Cruz went 0-3. Yunelky Adames hit his second HR. The pitching was kinda bad.

The box score for the DSL Pirates2 isn't yet available.
