Gregory Polanco left Altoona for AAA and the playoffs, and Jamestown got reinforcements on Saturday.

-- Indianapolis lost to Louisville, 8-4.  Duke Welker, in possibly his last outing for the Pirates' organization, gave up a two-run HR in one inning of work.  Jerry Sands went 2-3 with a double and three RBIs.  Robert Andino went 2-5 with two doubles.

-- Altoona got hammered by Akron, 9-0, in the first game of the post-Polanco era.  The most important development in the game, though, was Jason Grilli pitching a scoreless first inning in his first rehab appearance.  He gave up one hit, fanned one, and threw nine of 13 pitches for strikes.  The pitchers who followed weren't quite as effective.  Alen Hanson went 0-2 with two walks and Tony Sanchez 1-4.

-- Bradenton came from behind with three in the bottom of the 8th to beat Fort Myers, 3-2.  Robby Rowland started and gave up two runs in five and a third innings.  Willy Garcia went 3-4 with a double, Stetson Allie 1-3 with a double and Gift Ngoepe 2-3.  Newly activated Devin Ivany (an organizational catcher) went 2-3 and brought in the winning run by getting hit with a pitch with the bases loaded.

-- West Virginia's game with Lexington was suspended with the Power leading, 1-0, after three.  Clay Holmes, in what should be his last regular season start, gave up a hit and two walks, and fanned five.

-- Jamestown twice took five-run leads and held on to beat Williamsport, 8-6.  Austin Meadows homered in his New York-Penn League debut.  He finished 1-4 with a walk.  Andrew Dennis went 2-4 with two doubles and three RBIs, and Adam Frazier went 2-5.  Starter Isaac Sanchez struggled to throw strikes, walking five in four and a third innings.  Henry Hirsch followed, though, with two and two-thirds scoreless innings, allowing no hits and a walk, and striking out three.
