Matt Morris report: Tyler Glasnow debuts

New, comments
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

-- Four pitchers combined on a one-hitter and Indianapolis finally scored a run -- two even! -- in a 2-0 win over Columbus.  One of this year's reclamation projects, Chris Volstad, threw six innings, allowing a hit and a walk, and fanning two.  A.J. Morris survived two walks in the 7th, Bobby LaFromboise struck out the side in the 8th and Blake Wood had a 1-2-3 9th.  Jaff Decker was 2-2 with a double and a walk, Jose Tabata had a triple and Alen Hanson went 1-3 with a walk.

-- Tyler Glasnow had a, well, Glasnow-ish start in his season debut.  He gave up just two hits and fanned six in five scoreless innings.  He walked four, however, and threw only 41 of 73 pitches for strikes.  Stetson Allie put the Curve up with a 7th-inning HR, but John Kuchno gave up four runs in the 8th and Altoona went on to lose, 4-1, to Harrisburg.  Three of the runs were unearned as Altoona committed three errors in the inning, including another dropped fly ball by Allie.  The Curve had only four hits.  Josh Bell was 1-4.  Willy Garcia was 0-4 with three strikeouts and has now fanned seven times in his first dozen ABs.

-- Bradenton remains winless after losing its third straight, 3-2, to St. Lucie.  Starter Frank Duncan allowed one run in five innings on five hits and a walk.  He struck out six.  The Marauders took a 2-1 on a two-run double in the 6th by Erich Weiss, but Brett McKinney gave up a two-run HR in the 8th.  Bradenton had runners on first and third with one out in the 9th, but Chris Diaz lined into a double play.  Weiss was 2-4 and Jin-De Jhang 3-4.  Reese McGuire was 1-4 with a double, Austin Meadows 0-3 and JaCoby Jones 0-4.

-- Dovydas Neverauskas recorded only five outs as West Virginia got hammered by Savannah, 11-4.  Neverauskas allowed five runs on four hits and four walks.  After a poor 2014 season at the same level, he didn't help his case for innings in a very competitive situation on the Power's staff.  The Power went with a "Sunday lineup," so most of the team's better prospects didn't play.  Jerrick Suiter, who never homered in his college career, went 2-4 with a HR and three RBIs.  Chase Simpson, Francisco Diaz and Elvis Escobar each had two hits as well.
