Indianapolis got another strong start from . . . Tyler Waldron? And Wyatt Mathisen is suddenly red hot.

-- Indianapolis edged Pawtucket, 4-3.  Waldron (pictured) threw five shutout innings, allowing just two hits, walking none and striking out six.  After struggling throughout most of his career, he's now had two excellent starts as a fill-in with Indy.  Andy Oliver followed with three innings, allowing one run on one hit and a walk.  He fanned three.  Duke Welker was unable to pick up the save, giving up two runs in the 9th and retiring only two of six hitters.  Josh Kinney got the last out.  Andrew Lambo went 2-5 with two doubles.  Gregory Polanco was 1-5 with a walk.
