West Virginia was rained out.

-- Nick Kingham had an uneven start as Indianapolis beat Columbus, 4-3, in ten innings.  Kingham gave up three runs, two earned, and took 91 pitches to get through five innings.  He gave up seven hits and, despite the high pitch count, walked none.  He fanned six.  John Holdzkom threw a scoreless 9th but continued his struggles with the strike zone, walking three as well as fanning three.  He threw 32 pitches in the inning, only 15 of them strikes.  Brad Lincoln threw a perfect inning, striking out two.  The Indians had only six hits, three of them HRs.  Deibinson Romero (pictured) had half the hits and two of the HRs, giving him three on the year.  Brent Morel hit his first.  Pedro Forimon had the other two hits, including a two-out RBI single in the top of the 10th to give Indy the lead.  Alen Hanson, Elias Diaz and Tony Sanchez went a combined 0-13.

-- Altoona's game with Harrisburg was suspended after four innings with the Curve up, 2-1.  Angel Sanchez had allowed two hits and a run, with no walks and three strikeouts.  Max Moroff and Stetson Allie had doubles.

-- Bradenton lost to Charlotte, 6-2.  The Marauders had ten hits and six walks, but stranded a dozen runners.  Jose Osuna stranded seven himself.  Starter Felipe Gonzalez gave up three of the runs in five innings.  Clario Perez retired six straight over two innings, fanning four.  Justin Sellers began his rehab, playing five innings at short and going 2-2 with a walk.  Jin-De Jhang -- who has yet to strike out in 24 ABs -- was 2-3 with two doubles and a walk.  Wyatt Mathisen was 2-4 and JaCoby Jones 1-4.  Austin Meadows and Reese McGuire got the day off.
