Good days for Polanco, Sandfort

One suspended game on Friday, but otherwise a full slate.

-- Indianapolis edged Toledo, 4-2. Kris Johnson -- who continues to look like he could be useful in a Brandon Cumpton sort of way -- allowed the two runs in seven innings. He gave up seven hits, walked nobody, fanned six, and threw 68 of 102 pitches for strikes. Duke Welker threw a scoreless 8th, although he walked two. Vic Black gave up a hit and fanned two to pick up his 14th save. Ivan De Jesus, Jr. (pictured), went 3-3 with a walk and a double, raising his average to .328. Matt Hague went 2-5 with a double and Jared Goedert completed the Not Better Than Brandon Inge Trifecta by going 2-4. Tony Sanchez went 0-4 and Andrew Lambo 1-4.

-- Altoona edged Erie, 7-6. The Curve offense continued its turnaround, but Altoona was almost undone by its weak bullpen. Gregory Polanco went 2-3 with a walk and his second HR, raising his average in AA to .333. Adalberto Santos also went 2-3 and Drew Maggi went 2-4 with a double. Alex Dickerson hit his ninth HR in four ABs. Ethan Hollingsworth gave up three runs, two earned, in six innings. He left with a 6-3 lead, but Nate Baker struggled again to throw strikes and allowed three runs in an inning and two-thirds. Two were unearned, as Santos had three errors.

-- Bradenton lost to Fort Myers, 7-3. The Marauders struck out 13 times against a rehabbing Kyle Davies, who missed all of last year, and Matt Tomshaw. Eight of the whiffs came in four innings against Tomshaw, who came into the game striking out fewer than five per nine innings. Taylor Lewis went 3-4 with a double, a triple and a walk. D.J. Crumlich went 2-4 in his high A debut. Stetson Allie went 1-5 and fanned four times. Adrian Sampson got hit hard in his four innings, allowing six runs on nine hits, three of them longballs.

-- West Virginia continued its recent struggles, dropping a 4-2 game to Lexington. Clay Holmes gave up two runs in five innings on four hits and two walks. He fanned one and now has two more walks allowed than strikeouts on the season. Max Moroff and Chris Diaz each had two hits. Josh Bell went 0-4 with two strikeouts, and Barrett Barnes went 0-2 with two walks and two strikeouts.

-- Jamestown's game at Auburn was suspended after two and a half innings with the Jammers leading, 1-0. The only run scored when Adam Frazier walked and came around on JaCoby Jones' first pro hit, a double. Cody Dickson retired all six hitters he faced, three on strikeouts.

-- The GCL Pirates scored four in the first and hung on to beat the Braves, 4-3, in a game that was stopped with two outs in the bottom of the 7th. Jon Sandfort allowed no hits or walks over four innings while striking out six. The only runners against Sandfort came on an error and a hit batsman, and one was wiped out on a strike-em-out, throw-em-out double play. Reese McGuire caught his first pro game and made a strong throw on the caught stealing. At the plate, he walked, had an infield hit, and flied out to deep right-center. Ulises Montilla went 3-4 with a double and Luis Urena 2-4 with a double and a triple.

-- The DSL Pirates2 lost to the Orioles2, 5-2. Edgar Figueroa and Jhoan Herrera each went 2-5.
