Grilli fans three, Hague tries to close

Teams continued wrapping up their regular seasons on Monday.  Bradenton finished yesterday and Altoona today.  West Virginia's regular season is over, but the Power is in the playoffs.

-- Indianapolis lost in bizarre fashion to Louisville, 7-5.  A rain delay forced starter Andy Oliver out after three and two-thirds innings.  The Indians used four relievers to get through the 8th with a 5-2 lead.  Out of pitchers, they turned to Matt Hague, who has a strong arm and pitched a little in college, for the save.  Hague gave up two hits, then got two strikeouts.  He walked the next two hitters to force in a run before allowing a walkoff grand slam.  Oliver allowed no runs on two hits and a walk, while fanning seven.  Duke Welker probably left Twins' fans a little queasy by allowing two hits and two walks in his one inning, although he gave up only one run.  Gregory Polanco got his first two AAA hits in five ABs and also stole a base.  Darren Ford, Chase d'Arnaud, Brett Carroll, Lucas May and Ivan De Jesus, Jr., all had two hits.

-- Altoona finished its season by losing in 11 innings, 4-2, to Akron.  Jason Grilli made another rehab appearance, giving up one hit and striking out three in one inning.  He threw 14 of 17 pitches for strikes.  Mel Rojas, Jr. (pictured), went 3-4 with a double and a walk, and Jarek Cunningham belted his 19th HR.  Alen Hanson went 1-5, and Alex Dickerson and Tony Sanchez each 0-4.  Dickerson was promoted to Indianapolis for the playoffs.

-- West Virginia beat Lexington, 5-3.  Luis Heredia started and gave up three runs in five innings.  He allowed six hits and three walks, and struck out five.  Eric Wood had two hits and two RBIs.  Josh Bell didn't play.

-- Jamestown lost to State College, 6-4, in 11 innings.  Dovydas Neverauskas started the game with four scoreless innings.  He gave up three hits and two walks, and struck out three.  Axel Diaz ultimately lost the game by walking four in the 11th.  Reese McGuire went 2-6 and Austin Meadows 2-4 with a walk.  Edwin Espinal went 2-5 with a double and Candon Myles 2-5 with a triple.
