The Matt Morris Report: Pimentel has a brief but good rehab outing

Bradenton and Jamestown get strong starts, but the former doesn't get a strong finish. West Virginia gets rained out.

-- Indianapolis lost to Toledo, 6-1.  A.J. Morris struggled in his first start back in AAA, giving up all six runs in five innings on eight hits and a walk.  He struck out five.  Andy Oliver fanned four in two scoreless innings.  Ernesto Frieri and John Holdzkom each had a perfect inning with one strikeout.  Jaff Decker and Brent Morel were each 2-4.  Morel had two doubles.  Clint Barmes went 0-4, but played the whole game after playing seven innings yesterday.

-- Altoona lost to Akron, 4-3.  Stolmy Pimentel started and pitched just the first inning.  He retired the side in order with one strikeout and seven strikes thrown out of nine pitches.  Thomas Harlan gave up four runs, three earned, in four innings.  Carlos Paulino was 2-4 and Alen Hanson 1-4.

-- Bradenton took a one-run lead into the top of the 9th, but closer Yhonathan Barrios coughed up a grand slam and the Marauders lost to Fort Myers, 5-2.  Chad Kuhl (pictured) started and allowed just an unearned run on one hit and three walks over six innings.  He struck out five.  Max Moroff had two hits.

-- Jamestown shut out Batavia, 2-0.  Montana DuRapau threw five innings, allowing four hits and a walk, and fanning six.  Miguel Rosario and Luis Urena fanned another six combined in the remaining four innings.  Elvis Escobar was 2-4 with a double and Jordan Luplow 2-4.  Luplow also threw a runner out at the plate.

-- Bristol got crushed by Burlington, 10-1.  John Sever struggled in his second start since being moved from the bullpen.  He lasted just an inning and allowed three runs on two hits and three walks, with one strikeout.  Jon Sandfort's disastrous season continued; he gave up six runs in an inning and a third.  Bristol had only five hits.

-- The GCL Pirates lost to the Tigers, 4-3.  Nick Hutchings gave up all four runs in five innings on five hits and two walks.  He struck out one.  Carlos Munoz went 2-4 and Julio De La Cruz hit his second HR.  Cole Tucker was 0-3 with a walk.

-- The DSL Pirates scored three in the top of the 9th to edge the Mets2 in the completion of their suspended game from yesterday.  The game was suspended after six with a 3-3 tie.  The Pirates benefited from a dozen walks.  Jhoan Herrera was 2-4 and Raul Siri 1-2 with three walks.  Starter Jherson Esqueda gave up three runs in five innings.

The Pirates lost the regularly scheduled game, which was limited to seven innings, 5-4.  The Pirates had just five singles.  Starter Francis Rodriguez gave up four runs in four innings.
