The Matt Morris Report: Lots of good pitching. And rain.

Tyler Glasnow, Nick Kingham and Mitch Keller all had strong starts. West Virginia, Jamestown and Bristol did not have starts at all.

-- Kingham allowed one run over seven innings as Indianapolis beat Toledo, 3-1.  His control wasn't great as he walked four and threw only 60 of 102 pitches for strikes.  Kingham allowed just three hits and struck out six.  John Holdzkom had a perfect 9th for his first save.  Matt Hague was 2-3 with a double and Andrew Lambo 1-4.  Indy hitters struck out 14 times.

-- As I write this, Altoona is in a rain delay at home after five and a half innings.  The Curve are trailing Trenton, 1-0.  Zack Dodson had gone six, allowing the one run on six hits and two walks, with four strikeouts.  Alen Hanson was 2-3 with a double and Josh Bell 1-2.

-- Glasnow allowed just an unearned run in six and a third innings as Bradenton beat Jupiter, 6-1.  He gave up four hits, walked three and fanned ten.  Max Moroff was 3-4, Jose Osuna 2-3 with a double and Eric Wood 2-4.

-- The GCL Pirates got just one hit in a 1-0 loss to the Blue Jays.  Keller (pictured) had his best pro start, throwing four shutout innings, and allowing two hits and no walks.  He fanned six.

-- The DSL Pirates beat the Phillies, 8-4.  Edison Lantigua was 2-3 with two doubles and Sandy Santos 2-4.  Yunelky Adames hit his third HR.  Luylli Miranda threw three perfect innings in relief, striking out three.
