The Matt Morris Report: Allie, Tucker go deep

The top half of the farm system fared a lot better than the bottom half, as Bristol and the GCL Pirates blew multiple late-inning leads. The DSL Pirates were rained out.

-- Indianapolis shut out Toledo, 5-0.  Rafael Perez went six and a third, giving up four hits and two walks, and fanning seven.  Jose Tabata was 2-4, both doubles, with three RBIs.  Mel Rojas was 2-3 with a double.  Tony Sanchez made his debut at first base, but things didn't go so well at the plate:  he struck out three times and walked.  Andrew Lambo made his first appearance in several days and went 1-4.

-- Altoona beat New Britain, 7-2.  Joely Rodriguez returned to the rotation but struggled, lasting only three and a third innings.  He gave up two runs on four hits and four walks, while striking out two.  Jeff Inman bailed Rodriguez out of a bases-loaded, one out jam and the Curve's struggling bullpen went on to throw five and two-thirds scoreless innings.  Stetson Allie hit his 19th HR and Keon Broxton went 2-3 with a double.  Alen Hanson was 0-3 with a walk and came out of the game.  He was replaced on defense immediately after grounding out to end the 6th inning, so it's possible he failed to run another ball out.  If so, we may not see him again for a while.

-- Bradenton beat Palm Beach, 5-2, in the completion of a suspended game.  Orlando Castro started the game back in the day, but Felipe Gonzalez got the win by allowing just one run over the last four and a third innings.  Gonzalez allowed two hits and two walks, and fanned four.  Max Moroff was 2-5 with a double.

The Marauders lost the regularly scheduled game, 4-1.  Starter John Kuchno gave up four runs on ten hits in five and a third innings.  Jacob Stallings was 2-2.

-- West Virginia topped Kannapolis, 10-5.  Austin Meadows was 2-4 with a triple and a walk.  Chris Diaz and Wyatt Mathisen each went 2-5.  Erich Weiss hit his fourth HR and Reese McGuire was 1-3 with a walk.  Dovydas Neverauskas gave up three runs in five innings.  He allowed seven hits, walked none and struck out five.

-- Jamestown got stomped by State College, 8-0.  Alex McRae allowed five runs, four earned, in five and third innings.  Michael Suchy was 2-3.

-- Bristol blew two late-inning leads in a 5-4 loss to Burlington.  The Pirates took a 3-0 lead into the bottom of the 8th, but Marek Minarik gave up three to tie the game.  Bristol then scored a run in the top of the 9th, but Luis Paula gave up a walkoff, two-run single in the bottom half.  Starter Billy Roth had a rare good outing, allowing no runs in four innings.  He allowed two hits and three walks, and fanned five.  Jerrick Suiter was 3-3 with a triple and Tomas Morales 3-4 with a double.  The rest of the lineup had just one hit.

-- The GCL Pirates lost a wild game to the Yankees1, 13-12 in 13 innings.  The Pirates scored five times in the top of the 9th to tie the game, 9-9.  They went ahead with a run in the 11th, only to see Carlos Ruiz hit the leadoff batter in the bottom half and then wild pitch him around.  The Pirates went ahead again with two in the 13th, but Remy De Aza gave up a two-out, walkoff, three-run HR.  Cole Tucker (pictured) was 3-7 with his second HR and four RBIs.  Eric Thomas was 3-5.
