Hanson, Polanco HR; Dickson throws five shutout IP

Every team in the organization won on Wednesday, with the possible exception of the DSL Pirates1, whose result wasn't available.

-- Indianapolis edged Columbus and Daisuke Matsuzaka, 3-2.  Jerry Sands went 2-2 with a walk, a double and three RBIs.  Robert Andino went 3-4 and Darren Ford 2-4.  Graham Godfrey allowed two runs over seven innings while fanning seven.  Duke Welker got the last four outs for the save, allowing one hit and striking out two.

-- Mel Rojas, Jr., drove in Alex Dickerson with a one-out single in the bottom of the 12th to give Altoona a 6-5 win over Portland.  Dickerson had three hits in the game, including a double, and Justin Howard also went 3-6.  Alen Hanson (pictured) and Gregory Polanco each went 2-6 with a HR, Hanson's first and Polanco's fourth in AA.  Adalberto Santos also went 2-6.  The Curve blew a one-run lead in the 9th and then fell behind by a run in the 11th, but Hanson's HR tied the game in the bottom of the inning.  Starter Nick Kingham came out after three innings.  He gave up one run on five hits and a walk, and struck out four.  I don't know why he came out, but he had a long 3rd inning and threw 71 pitches total.

-- Bradenton beat Palm Beach, 3-1, as Pat Ludwig had probably the best game of his career.  He threw seven innings of two-hit, shutout ball, walking one and fanning seven.  Stetson Allie went 1-3 with a walk and his third Bradenton HR.  Junior Sosa and Elias Diaz each had two hits.

-- West Virginia scored nine runs in the 1st inning, eight of them unearned, and coasted to a 10-1 win over Greensboro.  Jordan Steranka went 3-5 with two doubles, and Josh Bell and Eric Wood each 2-4 with a walk.  Three Power pitchers combined on a one-hitter.  Starter John Kuchno allowed the hit and an unearned run in six innings.  He walked one and struck out six.  Jhondaniel Medina struck out the side in the 9th.  Medina, who's pitched for both class A teams this year, has 50 strikeouts in 35 innings and is holding opponents to a .148 average.

-- Jamestown dropped Batavia, 4-2.  Cody Dickson had a strong start, throwing five shutout innings, allowing three hits and a walk, and striking out seven.  In ten starts as a pro, Dickson had fanned 43 in 38.1 IP.  Jin-De Jhang had two hits.

-- The GCL Pirates shut out the Phillies, 5-0.  Billy Roth threw the first four innings, giving up three hits and a walk, and striking out one.  Austin Meadows went 1-2 with two walks and Reese McGuire 2-4.  Wyatt Mathisen continued his rehab by going 2-4 with a double.  Nick Buckner had a two-run double.

-- The DSL Pirates2 beat the Mets1, 12-6.  Carlos Munoz went 4-4 with a double, triple and two walks.  Munoz, a first baseman from Mexico who just turned 19, is hitting 318/469/458 with more than twice as many walks as strikeouts.  Alexis Bastardo had three doubles and four RBIs in five ABs.  Starter Julio Vivas threw five shutout innings, allowing four hits and two walks, and striking out four.
