The Matt Morris Report: 7/21/14

West Virginia staged a big comeback to save the organization from a winless day. No result was available for the DSL Pirates.

-- Indianapolis lost to Charlotte, 8-3.  Jay Jackson gave up six runs on eight hits in two and two-thirds innings.  Newcomer Rafael Perez allowed just an unearned run in five and a third innings of relief, although he gave up eight hits.  The Indians had six hits.

-- Altoona lost to New Britain, 4-3.  Zack Dodson managed to last five and a third innings despite allowing seven hits and seven walks.  Joely Rodriguez allowed no runs in two innings, but gave up four hits and two walks.  Dan Gamache was 2-3 with his second HR.  Alen Hanson returned from his latest suspension to go 0-4.  Josh Bell was also 0-4.

-- Bradenton fell victim to a three-hit shutout, losing to Dunedin, 3-0.  Dunedin pitchers Taylor Cole and Wil Browning combined to strike out 16 Marauders in eight innings.  (Somehow, nobody whiffed in the 9th.)  Barrett Barnes was 0-4 with two strikeouts.  Pat Ludwig, recently sent down from Altoona, gave up two runs on five hits in seven innings.

-- West Virginia recovered from a 7-0 deficit and conquered beat Rome, 9-8, in ten innings.  Reese McGuire, who went 3-5, doubled and scored the game-tying run in the bottom of the 9th, then hit a walkoff single to end it in the 10th.  Adam Landecker also went 3-5.  Erich Weiss was 2-3 with a double and a walk.  Austin Meadows was 2-5 with a walk and JaCoby Jones 1-5.  Danny Collins hit his fourth HR, but later left the game after getting beaned.  Cody Dickson lasted only two and two-thirds innings, allowing five runs, four unearned, on four hits and two walks.

-- Jamestown lost to Staten Island, 2-1.  The Jammers had only four hits.  Relievers Miguel Rosario and Sam Street combined to throw five scoreless and hitless innings, striking out eight.  Street has allowed no runs and just two hits in 13 innings so far.

-- Bristol lost to Johnson City, 8-4.  Maximo Rivera was 2-3 with a triple.

-- The GCL Pirates lost their ninth straight to the Braves, 12-5.  Carlos Munoz (pictured) was 3-3 with two doubles and a walk.  Yoel Gonzalez was 2-3 with a walk, Luis Benitez 2-4 with a triple and Henrry Rosario 2-4 with a double.  Cole Tucker was 0-4.  In his last ten games, Tucker is 4-35.  Pirates' pitchers walked ten.
