Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

-- Indianapolis scored two runs in the 13th inning to walk off against Louisville, 3-2. Casey Sadler allowed one run over six innings and was followed by four relievers who combined for six scoreless. Charlie Leesman then gave up a run on a series of singles, but Jaff Decker and Mel Rojas walked to lead off the bottom of the inning and both scored, Decker on a hit by Steve Lombardozzi and Rojas on one by Elias Diaz.

-- Tyler Glasnow pitched six strong innings as Altoona beat Akron 2-1. Glasnow struck out seven, walked none and allowed one run, and he now has 13 strikeouts and four walks in his first 11 Double-A innings. The Curve's offense managed just five hits and six total bases, but Gift Ngoepe's two-run double in the second still proved decisive.

-- A hot-hitting Marauders team kept producing Friday as Austin Meadows, JaCoby Jones, Erich Weiss, Jose Osuna and Jordan Steranka had two hits apiece in an 11-6 win over Jupiter. Meadows' 2-for-5 performance raised his average (well, barely) to .389. Jones had a two-run triple and also walked twice, and suddenly he's hitting .278/.350/.667. Steranka homered. Starter Steven Brault allowed two runs in four innings, striking out none and walking two.

-- West Virginia came back from a 3-0 deficit to tie Lexington in the eighth, but gave up three runs in the bottom of the inning and lost 6-3. Cole Tucker went 2-for-5 with a double, and 2014 third-rounder Jordan Luplow got his first hit for West Virginia, also a double. Starter Dovydas Neverauskas allowed three runs in 3.2 innings, striking out four and walking three. He also had three wild pitches and a balk. His ERA is now 13.50.
