Matt Morris Report: Tyler Glasnow dominates

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

-- Adrian Sampson threw seven innings of a 4-0 Indianapolis shutout of Lehigh Valley.  Sampson gave up four hits and a walk, and fanned seven.  It took him only 75 pitches, 54 strikes, to get through the seven innings.  The Iron Pigs are only 6-17, but they fielded an experienced lineup that included Domonic Brown, Brian Bogusevic, Russ Canzler, Jordan Danks and Chase d'Arnaud, as well as prospect Maikel Franco.  John Holdzkom pitched a scoreless 8th, walking one and striking out one.  He threw 13 of 21 pitches for strikes.  Alen Hanson continued his improved hitting, which typically starts about a month into the season, by going 4-5.  Gustavo Nunez was 3-3 and Elias Diaz 2-4.

-- Tyler Glasnow and three relievers combined on a one-hitter as Altoona blanked Erie and former Pirate draftee Austin Kubitza, 2-0.  Glasnow allowed the only hit, a 5th-inning, groundball single, and walked none in six innings.  He fanned seven and threw 46 of 70 pitches for strikes.  His 0.79 ERA puts him . . . I dunno, maybe third among Altoona starters.  Jeremy Bleich, Jhondaniel Medina and Yhonathan Barrios each threw an inning.  Josh Bell went 3-4 and drove in both runs.  He's now singled his way to a .373 batting average.  Keon Broxton was 2-4 with a double and Sebastian Valle 2-3 with a double.

-- Bradenton routed St. Lucie, 12-1.  Starter Felipe Gonzalez allowed one run on three hits and no walks, fanning six in six innings.  Austin Meadows was 3-6 and Reese McGuire 2-4 with a walk.  Erich Weiss was 2-5 with a double and four RBIs, JaCoby Jones went 2-4, and Justin Maffei scored four runs.

-- West Virginia lost to Greensboro, 3-2.  Starter Austin Coley gave up three runs on eight hits in five innings.  On the plus side, he walked none and fanned eight.  Tito Polo! was 2-3 and scored both runs, and Jordan Luplow was 2-4 with a double and a walk.  Cole Tucker and Pablo Reyes each went 1-5.
