Matt Morris Report: Short slate today

New, comments

Altoona and West Virginia were rained out.

-- Nick Kingham's second start didn't go as well as his first due to some control issues.  He threw four scoreless innings, but loaded the bases in the 5th on a hit and two walks.  Adam Miller relieved and let in all three runners plus two of his own, putting Toledo up, 5-1.  The Indians tied the game in the bottom of the 7th, but Blake Wood gave up two runs in the 8th, again thanks largely to control problems, and Indy went on to lose, 7-6.  Kingham finished with the three runs allowed in four innings on seven hits and two walks.  He fanned six and threw 54 of 91 pitches for strikes.  John Holdzkom threw a scoreless 9th, walking one and striking out two, but he threw only eight of 17 pitches for strikes.  Steve Lombardozzi was 3-4 with two doubles and Gustavo Nunez 2-3, his first two hits of the season.  Chris Stewart was 1-4 and Alen Hanson 0-4, each with a walk.  Gorkys Hernandez was 1-5 with four whiffs.  Despite that, Hernandez has started well, batting .316 with five walks in six games.

-- Cody Dickson's second start went a lot better than his first, as he threw five shutout innings in Bradenton's 7-1 win over Dunedin.  Dickson gave up two hits, walked two and struck out three.  Julio Vivas gave up no hits or walks in the last two innings, striking out three.  Erich Weiss (pictured) recovered from a slow start to go 3-4 with a double, triple and walk.  Michael Fransoso was 2-4, Jose Osuna 2-5 with a double, and Justin Maffei 1-2 with three walks.  Reese McGuire was 0-2 with two walks and JaCoby Jones 1-5.  Austin Meadows and Barrett Barnes got the day off.
