Matt Morris Report: Everybody wins

-- Indianapolis beat Toledo, 4-3.  The Indians had only five hits, but four of them came in a four-run 6th.  Deibinson Romero, who seems to have forced Brent Morel out of the third base job, had a two-run double and a walk in three at-bats.  Elias Diaz was 1-4 with a double.  Alen Hanson and Tony Sanchez each went 0-4.  Wilfredo Boscan, who may be pitching his way onto the depth picture somewhere, gave up two runs, one earned, in six innings.  He allowed five hits and three walks, and struck out two.  Bobby LaFromboise got the Indians out of a jam in the 8th, striking out the two batters he faced.

-- Altoona hammered Erie, 12-3, as Keon Broxton drove in six runs.  Broxton hit his first HR of the year, a grand slam, and also doubled and walked in six plate appearances.  Stetson Allie was 3-4 with a double and three RBIs, Josh Bell 3-5 with a double, and Sebastian Valle 3-5.  Eric Wood was 2-4 with a double and Max Moroff 2-5.  Moroff is 11-21 in his last five games and is now hitting .302.  Chad Kuhl allowed one run in six innings.  He gave up five hits, walked one and struck out two.  Kuhl threw 61 of 86 pitches for strikes and got eleven ground outs.

-- A day after pounding out 19 hits, Bradenton got only three, but still beat Jupiter, 1-0, behind a strong start by Cody Dickson (pictured).  He gave up just three hits and a walk, and struck out four, in six innings.  Ryan Hafner and Brett McKinney finished the shutout.  Austin Meadows was 1-4 and Jin-De Jhang 1-3.  Reese McGuire and JaCoby Jones got a day off.  The only run scored on a walk to Edwin Espinal, a bunt and error, and a sacrifice fly by Jordan Steranka.

-- West Virginia beat Lexington, 7-2.  Austin Coley had an outstanding start, throwing five shutout innings.  He gave up two hits and a walk, and fanned six.  Jordan Luplow was 2-3 with two doubles.  He also committed his fourth error in six games at third base.  Pablo Reyes and Chase Simpson each went 2-4 with a double.  Cole Tucker was 1-5.
