New, comments

Light action on Sunday, with the rookie leagues off and West Virginia suspended again.

-- Indianapolis lost to Columbus, 6-1. Graham Godfrey and newly promoted Zach Thornton each gave up three runs in three innings. Jared Hughes made his first appearance in six weeks, throwing a scoreless inning, with two hits allowed and one strikeout. Brian Bocock and Ivan De Jesus, Jr., each went 2-4 and Russ Canzler went 1-4 in his debut with the organization.

-- Gregory Polanco's absence for the Futures Game didn't stop Altoona from beating Akron, 9-4. Alex Dickerson (pictured) and Mel Rojas, Jr., remained hot. Dickerson went 4-5 with two doubles and his eleventh HR. He's now hitting 275/325/488 and his OPS by month has gone .587, .728, .917 and 1.151. Rojas went 2-4 with two walks. He's hitting 276/344/417 overall. Adalberto Santos, Charlie Cutler and Justin Howard all went 2-5. David Bromberg allowed three runs in seven innings to get the win.

-- Bradenton dropped to 32-59 on the year with a 4-3 loss to Tampa. The Marauders had plenty of chances early when their first four hitters went 5-7 with a walk the first two times through the lineup, but Bradenton managed only one run. Two runners caught stealing and Alen Hanson getting picked off second didn't help. Hanson went 2-5, Elias Diaz 2-4, Dan Gamache 3-4 and Stetson Allie 1-3 with a walk. Each of the four had a double. Joely Rodriguez allowed three runs in six innings.

-- West Virginia's game at Asheville got suspended after two and a half innings with the score 2-2. Ryan Hafner allowed five hits and two runs in two innings, while striking out two. Barrett Barnes had a double and Walker Gourley his fourth HR before play was stopped.

-- Jamestown edged Lowell, 1-0. Dovydas Neverauskas and Shane Carle combined on the shutout, with Neverauskas going five innings. He allowed three hits and a walk, and fanned four. Carle allowed three hits and fanned six in his four innings. He struck out the game's last two hitters with a runner on third. Harold Ramirez went 2-4 and is now hitting .343. Michael Fransoso went 2-4 with two doubles, the second one coming with two outs in the top of the 9th. It drove in Danny Collins, who had tripled, with the game's only run. Adam Frazier went 1-4 and JaCoby Jones 0-4.
