Friday's minor league action:
-- Indianapolis won a bizarre game from Durham, 6-5. The Indians trailed, 4-0, going into the bottom of the 8th thanks to seven no-hit innings by recently traded, former Royals prospect Mike Montgomery. When Montgomery walked Jared Goedert to lead off the 8th, Durham went to the bullpen. Three relievers later, Indy had plated six runs on just four hits, all they managed in the game. Tony Sanchez had a double during the rally, Indy's only extra base hit. Graham Godfrey made his first start since the Pirates acquired him. He gave up four runs in six innings. Zach Thornton got the win, striking out three in two scoreless innings. Duke Welker got the save, allowing an unearned run in the 9th.
-- Altoona lost to Binghamton by a 3-2 count. Starter David Bromberg gave up the three runs in six innings. Carlos Paulino went 2-3 with a double and a walk. Charlie Cutler went 2-4 and is hitting .341.

Gregory Polanco went 1-5 and Alen Hanson 0-4 with a walk. Zack Dodson gave up four runs in 4.2 IP, on five hits and three walks, with four strikeouts.
