The Matt Morris Report: 8/3/14

It was a light day of action on Sunday, with the two rookie league teams off and Jamestown's game canceled due to wet grounds.

-- Indianapolis went 0-7 with runners in scoring position and lost to Toledo, 2-1.  Adam Wilk gave up the two runs in five innings.  He fanned five.  Jay Jackson, who's had some severe ups and downs, threw four scoreless innings in relief, giving up two hits and no walks, and striking out six.  Starling Marte had a double and two strikeouts in four ABs.  Mel Rojas provided the only Indians run with his third HR.  Jaff Decker and Matt Hague each went 2-3.  Longtime Altoona stalwart Derek Hankins allowed just the one run in seven innings for Toledo.

-- Altoona beat Richmond, 6-3.  Angel Sanchez made his first start as a Pirate, allowing two runs in five innings on six hits and two walks.  He fanned three.  Alen Hanson was 2-3 with a triple and a walk, and Gift Ngoepe (pictured) 2-3 with a double and a walk.  Stetson Allie and Carlos Paulino were each 2-4.  Josh Bell flied out as a pinch hitter.

-- Bradenton beat Brevard County, 5-3, on a two-run, pinch-hit, walkoff HR by Justin Howard in the 9th.  The longball was his first since moving down from Altoona.  Eric Wood was 3-4 and Justin Maffei 2-3 with a double.  Starter Shane Carle gave up two runs, one earned, in six innings on four hits and two walks.  He fanned four.

-- West Virginia got blanked by Lexington, 3-0.  Cody Dickson gave up three runs on six hits in five and two-thirds innings.  He walked two and fanned six.  Jared Lakind retired all six batters he faced in relief, striking out five.  If you want to see Austin Meadows and Reese McGuire play, evidently you shouldn't see the Power on a Sunday.  They both sat out for the second Sunday in a row.  Maximo Rivera was 2-4 and JaCoby Jones 1-4.

-- Bristol beat Greeneville, 4-2.  Trae Arbet was 2-4 with a two-run double.  Chris Harvey hit his first professional HR.  Starter Junior Lopez gave up two runs in three and two-thirds innings.  He gave up four hits and a walk, and fanned six.  John Sever continued to pile up the strikeouts, fanning six in four and a third scoreless innings of relief.  He gave up five hits and no walks.
