The Matt Morris Report: Keon Broxton goes deep twice

Jamestown was off and West Virginia's game was canceled.

-- Indianapolis beat Louisville, 7-3.  Chase d'Arnaud went 3-4 with a double and Tommy Field 2-4.  Mel Rojas hit his fifth HR and drove in three.  Jake Brigham gave up two runs on ten hits in six and a third innings.  Ernesto Frieri allowed one run in one inning.

-- Altoona's game with Akron got delayed with two outs in the top of the eighth and the Curve leading, 7-2.  Whether the teams resume play or not, the box score is here.  Keon Broxton (pictured) was 4-4 with two HRs, his 12th and 13th, and four RBIs.  Alen Hanson was 2-4 with a triple and his 11th HR.  Dan Gamache added his fourth longball.  Jhonathan Ramos allowed two runs, one earned, in six innings.  He allowed six hits and two walks, and struck out three.  Matt Nevarez, a hard thrower whom the Pirates just acquired out of independent ball, made his debut in the system.  He threw a scoreless inning despite allowing a hit and two walks.  He fanned two.

-- Bradenton lost to Fort Myers, 3-2.  The Marauders couldn't take advantage of a dozen hits.  Eric Wood and Walker Gourley each had three, Max Moroff and Jose Osuna each two.  Shane Carle gave up three runs, two earned, on eight hits in five innings.  He walked one and struck out five.

-- Bristol fell behind 11-0 and ultimately lost to Johnson City, 12-8.  Nine of the 12 runs the Pirates allowed were unearned, thanks to four errors and four passed balls.  (Catcher Chris Harvey, signed as a non-drafted free agent, now has ten passed balls in 14 games.)  Edgar Munoz was 4-4 with a double and Harvey 3-4.  Nick Buckner was 2-3 with two walks, Jerrick Suiter 2-5 with a double, and Daniel Arribas 2-6 with a double.

-- The GCL Pirates lost to the Yankees2, 4-3.  The Pirates had only two hits, but also drew nine walks and struck out a dozen times.  Cole Tucker was 0-2 with three walks.  Trey Supak gave up three runs on four hits, including two HRs, in the first inning.  One of the longballs was by a rehabbing AAA player.  Supak recovered to throw three scoreless innings.  He gave up seven hits overall, walked one and fanned five.

-- The DSL Pirates scored nine in the 4th inning and went on to rout the Yankees2, 17-6.  The Pirates had 13 hits and 13 walks, and benefited from six errors.  (DSL games must get mighty tedious sometimes.)  Raul Siri was 3-5 with two doubles, Edison Lantigua 3-5, and Adrian Valerio 2-6.  Mikell Granberry was 2-5 with four RBIs.  Starter Richard Mitchell, who had been pitching well, lasted just an inning and two-thirds, allowing five runs, three earned.
