Taillon pitches well, Jammers can haz offense


Sunday's schedule was light even without West Virginia getting rained out.

-- Indianapolis lost to Toledo, 9-7. Stolmy Pimentel went six innings, throwing more strikes than he has in some games (67 of 95 pitches), but giving up four runs on nine hits and a walk. He fanned four. He was facing a pretty good lineup that included Avisail Garcia, who hit for the cycle, and Nick Castellanos. Pimentel left with the game tied, but Brooks Brown gave up five runs. Josh Harrison, despite lacking Brandon Inge's internals, went 2-5 with two doubles and is now hitting 127 points higher than Inge. Ivan De Jesus, Jr., went 2-4 with a triple and is now hitting 142 points higher than Inge. Alex Presley and Andrew Lambo each had two hits in four at-bats, which is the same number of hits that Inge has had in his last 23 at-bats. Tony Sanchez, in four at-bats, had one hit, a double. One happens to be the number of players currently in all of MLB with 100+ plate appearances who have an OPS lower than Brandon Inge's. No word yet on whether that player's bat has a barrel.

-- Jameson Taillon pitched well, but Altoona dropped a 3-1 decision to Erie. Taillon went seven, giving up two runs on five hits. He walked none, fanned six, and threw 56 of 84 pitches for strikes. Charlie Cutler and Jarek Cunningham each went 2-4. Gregory Polanco went 0-4.

-- Alen Hanson returned from a minor leg injury, but Bradenton lost to Charlotte, 9-6. Hard-throwing reliever Emmanuel De Leon made his first start since rookie ball and gave up five runs in his first and only inning. All of the runs were unearned, as De Leon was victimized by three errors and a passed ball. He could have had a 1-2-3 inning, as the first three hitters he faced reached on two errors and a playable grounder up the middle that Hanson couldn't hold onto. Willy Garcia, who made several outstanding throws in the game, threw a runner out at the plate to end the suffering. Robby Rowland followed, allowing two runs in six innings, but striking out none. In case you've wondering what's happened to Rowland this year, his fastball was sitting at 85. Dan Gamache went 3-5, Jacob Stallings 2-3 and Hanson 2-4, and each of the three hit a double. Stetson Allie went 0-3 with a walk and a strikeout.

-- A day after scoring 29 games in a doubleheader, Jamestown broke out the bats again in a 10-3 win over Batavia. The Jammers pounded out 17 hits, with Adam Frazier (pictured) and Jeff Roy each going 3-4. Frazier is hitting .438 since joining the Jammers and JaCoby Jones, who went 2-5 with a triple, is now hitting .450. Harold Ramirez and Edwin Espinal each went 2-4, and Danny Collins went 2-5 with a double. Jackson Lodge gave up two runs in six innings to get the win.
