Indianapolis opened the post-Polanco era, while a couple of pitching prospects struggled.

-- Indianapolis edged Lehigh Valley, 4-3.  Adam Wilk allowed three runs, two earned, over seven innings.  Josh Wall pitched a scoreless 8th and Vin Mazzaro a scoreless 9th for the save.  Tony Sanchez (pictured) went 1-4 with his fourth HR and three RBIs.  Chris Dickerson added his fifth HR and Chris McGuiness went 2-4 with a double.  Mel Rojas was 1-4.  Meanwhile, facetious comments on Indianapolis games are going to be harder to come by.

-- Altoona lost to Portland, 5-1.  Joely Rodriguez struggled, giving up five runs on ten hits in six innings.  Elias Diaz went 1-3 with a double and a walk, and Alen Hanson and Stetson Allie each 1-4.

-- Bradenton lost to Palm Beach, 9-3.  Orlando Castro struggled, allowing six runs on eight hits in three and two-thirds innings.  The Marauders had only five hits, although two were HRs.  Jonathan Schwind hit his third and Josh Bell his seventh.  Bell went 1-3.

-- Luis Heredia struggled to throw strikes as West Virginia lost to Greensboro, 5-2.  Heredia allowed only two hits and no earned runs in four and two-thirds innings, but he walked five, struck out only one, and gave up five unearned runs.  Reese McGuire was 2-4, and Harold Ramirez and Wyatt Mathisen each 1-4 with a double.

-- The DSL Pirates continued to have pitching problems, losing to the Angels, 10-6.  Starter Richard Mitchell gave up five runs on eight hits in three and two-thirds innings.  Felix Vinicio went 2-3 with a double, a triple and two walks.  Adrian Valerio was 1-3 with a walk.
