The Matt Morris Report: Heredia has best start of season

Action was light on Monday as Indianapolis and Altoona were off.

-- Bradenton came back from a 4-0 deficit to edge St. Lucie, 5-4.  Jacob Stallings was 2-3 with two doubles and three RBIs, Eric Wood 2-3 with a double, Justin Maffei 2-4 with a double and Jordan Steranka 2-4.  Starter John Kuchno left following a 3rd inning rain delay.  Pat Ludwig allowed one run in four and two-thirds relief innings.

-- West Virginia lost to Augusta, 2-1.  Luis Heredia (pictured) threw seven shutout innings, allowing three hits and two walks, and striking out five.  JaCoby Jones went 2-3 with a walk and Edwin Espinal went 2-4.  Austin Meadows and Reese McGuire were both 0-4.

-- Jamestown took advantage of seven walks and five errors to beat Aberdeen, 10-5.  Francisco Aponte was 3-5 with a triple and Erik Lunde 2-5.  David Andriese went 1-3 with two walks and three RBIs.  Jamestown pitchers struck out 15.  Starter Austin Coley gave up two runs in three innings on six hits and a walk, with six strikeouts.  Julio Eusebio got the win with two and a third scoreless innings.  He fanned five.

-- Bristol came within three outs of getting no-hit in the first game of its doubleheader with Elizabethton and went on to lose, 2-0.  Trae Arbet led off the 7th with a single to break up the no-hitter.  After a string of bad starts, Jake Burnette allowed just one run on three hits and a walk in three innings.  He fanned three.

Bristol won the second game, 4-0.  Hector Garcia fanned six over five innings, allowing just two hits and no walks.  Garcia now has 40 strikeouts and just 30 hits allowed in 37.1 IP.  Eduardo Figueroa went 2-3 with a double and a triple.

-- The GCL Pirates shut out the Blue Jays (who have a very bad team), 6-0.  Henrry Rosario was 2-5 with a double and a triple, and Julio De La Cruz 2-5 with a double.  Tito Polo! was 2-4.  Michael De La Cruz, who's having a very rough season, possibly in part due to a couple of health issues, was 3-4.  Cole Tucker went 0-5 with three strikeouts.  Dario Agrazal threw five innings, allowing just one hit, walking one and striking out three.

-- The DSL Pirates beat the Phillies, 8-5.  Starter Nestor Oronel gave up an unearned run on one hit and no walks in five innings.  He struck out three.  Jhoan Herrera was 4-5 with a double, Raul Siri 3-5 with a double, and Victor Fernandez 2-4 with a double.  Adrian Valerio went 1-5.  Edison Lantigua returned from an injury to go 0-3.
