-- Altoona lost to Harrisburg, 6-3.  Gregory Polanco went deep for the sixth time in AA.  He went 1-4, as did Alen Hanson.  Adalberto Santos went 2-4 with a double.

-- Bradenton edged Jupiter, 3-2, behind a good start by Joely Rodriguez.  He went seven innings, allowing two runs, one earned, on seven hits and two walks.  He fanned six.  Elias Diaz and Jose Ozuna each had two hits.  Stetson Allie went 0-4 with two strikeouts.

-- West Virginia opened the post-Herrera era with a 5-2 win over Asheville.  Jason Creasy gave up two runs over seven innings on six hits.  He walked none and fanned two.  Josh Bell and Jimmy Rider each went 2-3, and Walker Gourley hit his sixth HR.

-- Jamestown shut out Mahoning Valley twice.  The Jammers won the first game, 8-0, as Isaac Sanchez, Justin Topa and Oderman Rocha combined to allow just five hits in seven innings.  Elvis Escobar went 3-3 and five other players -- Harold Ramirez, Adam Frazier, Wyatt Mathisen, Edwin Espinal and Danny Collins -- each had two hits.  Escobar, Espinal and Collins each had a double, and Espinal drove in three.

In game two, a wild pitch accounted for the only run as Jamestown allowed just three hits.  Buddy Borden fanned seven over four innings, allowing just one hit and two walks.  The Jammers had only four hits.

-- The GCL Pirates clinched a playoff spot with a rain-shortened, 5-2 win over the Blue Jays.  James McDonald started and allowed the two runs during a rough first inning in which a number of balls got hit hard.  He was more effective over the next two innings, finishing with three hits allowed, no walks and three strikeouts.  McDonald was hitting 91-92 with his fastball.  Wei-Chung Wang followed with four shutout innings allowing just two hits and a walk, and fanning six.  Wang, whose out pitch is a curve, was reaching 93-94 near the end of his outing.  Austin Meadows and Reese McGuire each went 1-2, with McGuire's hit going for two bases.  Nick Buckner went 2-3.

-- The DSL Pirates evened their playoff series with the Tigers at a game apiece with a 6-5 win.  Jhoan Herrera led the offense, going 3-4 with two doubles, a walk and three RBIs.  Michael De La Cruz went 1-4 with a walk, and Bealyn Chourio went 2-4.  Starter Julio Vivas allowed no runs, one hit and no walks over five innings.  He struck out four.
