-- Indianapolis came back from a 2-0 deficit to beat Lehigh Valley, 4-2. Casey Sadler gave up two runs in six innings on eight hits and one walk. He struck out five. John Holdzkom, Wirfin Obispo and Andy Oliver each threw a perfect inning in relief. It was Holdzkom's first appearance in AAA. Jaff Decker was 3-5 with a double and Robert Andino 2-4 with a triple. Dean Anna was 1-3 with a double and a walk.
-- Altoona lost game one of its doubleheader with Erie, 8-4. Zack Dodson gave up a pair of four-run innings, with two of the eight runs unearned. He lasted three and two-thirds. Alen Hanson was 1-3 with a walk, Stetson Allie 0-3 with three strikeouts. Gift Ngoepe went 2-3.
As I'm writing this, the Curve are tied, 5-5, in game two. Thomas Harlan came up from Bradenton for a spot start and allowed two runs, one earned, in five innings. He gave up seven hits and a walk, and fanned one. Unfortunately, the Curve's gas can bullpen gave up hits to the first five batters they saw once Harlan was gone. Carlos Paulino and Willy Garcia were each 2-3, Hanson 1-2 with a walk, and Allie 0-3 with two strikeouts. I'll update this if it ends soon enough.
