Another team's season comes to an end:

-- Indianapolis lost to Durham, 2-1, giving the Bulls a sweep of the best-of-five series.  Wandy Rodriguez made his first rehab start, allowing two runs, one earned, in three innings.  He gave up three hits, walked none and fanned one, and threw 35 of 48 pitches for strikes.  Jameson Taillon followed with five scoreless innings.  His control wasn't good, as he walked five and threw only 46 of 83 pitches for strikes.  He gave up only one hit, though, and fanned five.  Duke Welker threw a 1-2-3 top of the 9th, with one strikeout.  The Indians outhit Durham, 10-4, but went 1-11 with RISP and stranded ten runners, including the tying run at third in the bottom of the 9th.  Jerry Sands went 3-4 and Lucas May 2-4.  Gregory Polanco went 1-4 with a double.

--West Virginia evened its best-of-three series by beating Hagerstown in eleven innings, 6-3.  Josh Bell drove in four runs with a 2-5 game, including a two-run double in the 11th to give the Power the lead.  Walker Gourley went 4-5 with a double and Jordan Steranka 2-6 with a double.  Starter John Kuchno allowed three runs, two earned, in four and two-thirds innings, but the West Virginia bullpen followed with six and a third shutout innings.  Ryan Hafner went two and a third, fanning three and allowing no hits or walks.  Jhondaniel Medina got the win with two scoreless innings.

-- Jamestown won the opener of its best-of-three series with State College by a 6-5 count.  The Jammers took an early 6-0 lead and got an outstanding start from Buddy Borden.  He threw five shutout innings, giving up three hits and no walks, and striking out seven.  Jamestown's struggling bullpen, though, nearly blew another one as Jerry Mulderig gave up five runs in the 6th.  Will Kendall, though, followed with two and a third scoreless innings, striking out four.  Jamestown pitchers whiffed 14 in the game.  Austin Meadows (pictured) had a three-run HR and a triple in four ABs.  Edwin Espinal went 3-4, Michael Fransoso 2-4, and Reese McGuire 1-4.
